“Z” is for Zenith

I’ve wanted it for as long as I can remember. There was never a time when I didn’t, when it wasn’t in the back of my mind somewhere. And now the opportunity has presented itself, courtesy of Averitt.

Y’know what drives me absolutely bonkers about people getting into erotica is that in some books are just downright terrifying as to what they ‘represent’ as fact.  One of the absolute crackers are the ‘natural, virginial’ women that just happen to tame the slightly rogue dominant master who is jaded and tired of the scene, and suddenly finds his/her freedom nirvana ‘teaching’ a virgin.
