What Belongs Where

Aaarghh! I heard a scream just as I walked out of the small room after my last session and saw Milena rush out of the foyer and into the back room. Fairy was sitting on the couch with a slightly stunned expression. I looked at her questioningly, but she just stared after Milena. I shrugged […]

The End of Commercial Sex

One evening I took on a 2-hour session with one of the more talkative parlor regulars.

Snow Vixen

“Oooo…it’s Jean-Pierre again!!” she would squeal with delight whenever her favorite regular called in to book an appointment with her. Emily was quite open about her affection towards her regulars, although she never gave the impression that she was looking for anything serious from a particular guest. She just liked to flirt a lot and […]
