The preface provides accurate warning for those easily offended. These stories a bold, edgy and rough but not crude. His style is often heavy on dialogue which is a feature I really liked. I really enjoy stories that smack at the foibles of religion so my favorite was 'Confession" followed by the the dark humor of "Cousin It." My only complaint if you can call it that, was I felt the collection was a little large at 20 stories but it makes it a good value.
This book is just the most erotic book I have read so far. I am a huge fan of the classic O Henry books and this author writes in the same manner. His short stories are erotic, humorous, thought provoking, dark and I just loved them.
In each of us is the need to look behind the curtain and peek inside. We want to have a glimpse and not get caught. Then we would scamper off and giggle away. Some of us will keep these little secret peeks to ourselves and others will run off to the local priest and confess our sins. These little stories allow me to enjoy these little peeks and to develop them into pleasurable fantasies.
So if you are as filthy minded as I am then you will enjoy this book and become a fan of Daddy X.
The deadpan humor and colorful characters in Daddy’s writing remind me of Charles Portis or John Grisham, but don’t get me wrong—this is intensely erotic material. Daddy delves into a darker side of sexuality than many would be comfortable with. This book is definitely not for the squeamish!
In Daddy’s world, everyone is a pervert deep down, but Daddy is a true romantic. Everyone can find love and companionship with the right someone who shares their sexual proclivities. Far from popular portrayals of kinky people as unhappy outsiders, Daddy’s characters gleefully indulge themselves in their wildest fantasies, and are rewarded by finding their soul mates in the process. Thus, a peeping tom not only stumbles on a willing subject for his voyeuristic fantasies, he also finds a partner to share them with. A perverted priest encounters a very forthcoming confession. In my favorite story, a couple who are inching toward an open relationship find a third partner who gives new meaning to the term “unicorn.”
Daddy is a big believer in being careful what you wish for, and that things are not always as they seem. Anal sex lovers looking for willing partners may find that their partners are too willing. Sharing your wife with another man could make you feel like you’re missing out (unless your wife gives you a present too, that is). An anthropology professor studying native American sex practices only has science in mind, right? Why would the beautiful wife of a carnival operator sleep with her 18-year-old assistant? And why is she attracted to her much-older husband? Could they both be getting something out of the seeming infidelity?
I could go on, but you get the idea. Buy this book and enter Daddy’s world. You’ll be glad you did.
