Hotel sex erotica at March's In The Flesh

This is me at the March In The Flesh Reading Series, reading from my introduction to Do Not Disturb: Hotel Sex Stories, as well as reading a portion of Isabelle Gray's Japanese love hotel story "So Simple a Place."

Also check out Nerve blog The Modern Materialist for all kinds of hotel sex tips, and they call Do Not Disturb:

an anthology of titillating tales that covers everything from five-star luxury sweet spots to "no-tell" motel meets. With stories ranging from solo to multi-player action, and writing rich with drama, humor, and kinky fun, this book will have you raring to go. As an extra bonus, you could even bring it along and stage a mini-reading with your partner.
