Simone Freier is just that good. Although a trained nurse, who has practiced many of the scenes she writes about, is a natural writing talent whose ability to set a scene and step through it carefully, while drawing the reader along is excellent. Like others, you may want to pull back from “First Experiences: The Introduction of a Young Woman to Openness, Trust, and New Experiences of the Submission Kind” but you do not as you just have to see what happens next.
At first, for example, Freier talks about Sam, who appears as a principal in the first book of this series, where you meet the others in his life, his wife, women friends, couples and others who like submissive sex. Now, a couple of years later, Bill has lost his wife and play partner, Linda, gone underground and has resurfaced, his grieving done. An active practitioner and participant also, Sam is now looking for a younger partner with whom to play.
He finds Kelly, the daughter of his friends Dave and Darlene, at a dinner party. Immediately, Sam is smitten. Thinking aloud to the reading audience, Sam says he could have “taken her … right there.” Kelly is a beautiful, grad student, who has just graduated with her master's in biochemistry. She is planning to work toward her doctorate as it is the bio-research community's degree of choice. She and Sam chat for a bit about old times and people. Sam actually knew Kelly as a child when she was playing soccer, as were his own boys and her older brothers. At length, there's a silence.
At this point, Sam, thinking she and he are done with their conversation, turns to go inside to meet the other guests. He is stopped short when Kelly abruptly asks for help in future career (Sam has been in bio-research for some years). She then asks if they can get together for coffee to which Sam readily agrees. Outwardly, Sam is somewhat reserved, inwardly he is gratified and excited. He had hoped for more and he received his wish. Apparently sensing an unfulfilled need in her, he believes he has found the girl of his fantasies, the one who will help him live out his fantasies. Kelly doesn't know it, but she has just changed her life.
That's as much as I'm going to reveal because don't want to spoil it for you. If I went on you would miss some rich writing and some of the best writing on sex and submissiveness that I have found. Let's face facts, it is easy to write about sex. I could do it, having been a writer for many years, but I know it would be mechanical and would lack the depth and breadth that Freier puts into her work. Freier's talent is so good that you don't know it is there once you submit to this book and get involved.
Freier is no pinch-penny with her work. She allows you into each scene she describes and takes you fully step-by-step, inch-by-inch, into the action, knowing you will be part of the secret club who admires her work. You see, Friere is not only an excellent sex writer, but she is also an incredibly talented writer. She uses her talent well in “Experiences” so that you are never overwhelmed by what is going on. Sex is used well, but as a plotting device for what I feel is another message in this novel that of an adventurous journey.
Freier, I believe, has Bill and Kelly, two very unlikely candidates for a hookup, get together, but in that meeting, she begins their journey of discovery. Sexual play and their weekend together will give them that and more. However, you do have to realize it will create as many questions as it solves. I think, though, you will probably find the ultimate solution in the next book.
It was really hard to get through the first chapter. I was uncomfortable and embarrassed for Sam, the lost widower seeking excitement through pain. Kelly is a young, bored student seeking excitement and risk.
The book is well written but psychologically tugs at your fears and judgements of right and wrong in ways that are disturbing. Openness and trust are the true roles Sam and Kelly are really playing but can’t they just do some extreme sports for the thrill? Couldn’t they turn the pain of a fierce gym workout into pleasure instead of involving the fear and pain associated with medical exams?
Sam’s turn-ons are extreme but the pages vary from intense to a bit boring and routine once you learn what Sam has planned. It gets very clinical at times and as someone that often passes out at the sight of a needle, unpleasant. I only finished the book to see if Sam and Kelly reach any benefit or knowledge from all the torture.
I had to keep taking breaks from reading to clear my head of the disturbing images.
The amazing thing about Simone Freier’s writing is that she really stresses the “open-ness” aspect, letting you dive deep into the characters’ thoughts. there isn’t any notion of privacy--everything is on the table, no matter how revealing or intimate those thoughts are. this is a sign of a strong writer, someone who just goes for it and never holds back, and it helps the book flow. However, it is strangely cliche in that a “right place, right time” meeting ended up escalating in a vivid, sexual awakening. But it tries hard to steer clear of any other cliched moments, some of which are successful, others not. Having read 50 Shades of Grey, I saw a lot of similarities between the two novels, which took away from its uniqueness and ingenuity.
That said, it is more thought-out out than most books of this genre. The physiology and medical background of the author definitely came through in the plot, adding a unique touch to it and helped it steer clear of simple, superficial books. Intertwined in the plot is a social commentary about openness and being comfortable in one’s own skin--a very positive message for readers everywhere. This adds an even DEEPER level to the book, as I love plots that scatter in feel-good, subconscious positivity.
