Annie Oakfield’s The Bucket List, Part One, published April 2013, is a short story / novella about Lucy (told in first person) who spends one long exhausting – but very satisfying – evening as the demonstration model at a dildo party.
This is a delightful read. It’s well-written and very erotic – and also quite sweet. And while it is a fantasy, there’s a sense that parts of it are quite real.
There’s also something unusual about the perspective of the character and/or author that distracted me while reading it: I know it’s unwise to try and label people’s sexual identity, but I got the sense that although Lucy acted bisexual (certainly not straight/gay bi-curious) she didn’t identify as bisexual – so it was interesting to read afterwards that the author considers herself to be omnisexual.
The only problem, grr, is that Part Two is yet to be published…
