Short fiction (9395 words)
Audrey’s boyfriend Nate has a thing about going down on her after sex. He likes to finish, and then lick it back out of her. It’s messy and sticky and, she thinks, kind of hot, so she doesn’t mind humoring him. One day, on a whim, she asks if he’d do that after she’s just had sex with another man. Asks, mostly teasing him, with no expectation he would. And he says yes.
To her surprise, Audrey realizes she wants to try. Partly it’s a free pass to have sex with anyone she wants to, anyone she likes, and she misses that now she’s settled down and happy. Partly she likes how wrong it is. Unprotected sex is stupid and dangerous and very risky, but she wants to do it, so she finds a friend of a friend who’ll let her try with him. Then Nate tells her he wants to do it again, but this time with a complete stranger inside her, someone neither of them know. And now she has to decide how far she’ll let this game go, and how much she really wants to have sex with other men, and what she’s willing to risk to do it.
