The dark, wet, often cold environment of the underground work place can have the unexpected effect of freeing the mind to drift away from such a hostile world into one of burning desire, passionate kisses, soft touches, and the intense magnetism that draws men and women together. Randall Lang is the author of seven books of erotica published by Renaissance E-books and contributed to the first edition of “Midnight Raunch” as published by Midnight Showcase.

  1. Oooh! This is gonna be good! I can’t wait =D

  2. I love being on top! Hmm…yes, it’s where I always belong.

    Check out a 2006 movie called MENTOR, with Rutger Hauer. It’s about swinging and writers. Hauer plays a famous writer/professor who has a young female grad student lover, except he is impotent, so finds a young male writer who is promising to be his replacement in bed and he can watch — his surrogate, his double, his proxy of cock. He even sends this young writer’s stories out to get published. The normal issues of insecurities and threesomes pop up.
