These are obviously the better reviews of the book.

It’s always a bad idea to respond to reviews, or to explain what you meant when you wrote a story, but now that it’s over, this is what I was trying to do: There are two sex scenes in the story. One is supposed to be erotica, or sex with long words and feelings and so forth, the other pure porn in its most raunchy, untitillating body-parts thumping form. The point of the story as far as I was concerned was to show you the difference. It’s worked for some readers, hasn’t for others. But it was fun writing this. Lots of angry reviews talking about how parts of the story use lewd words, or were like blue films, and so were not erotic. Yes, I know. In those bits, I was trying to write porn. Which is not something I would do in my books. This was a writing exercise for me, not a masturbation aid. Sorry.
