When I walked in the door, Sam was waiting for me. He took me in his arms, lifting me from the floor, and spinning us around. When he put me back down, we kissed each other deeply. “Happy anniversary, Kelly.” It was hard to believe that it had already been a year since our first lunch together.
Sam asked, “So what would you like to do this afternoon, before we go to dinner?”
“I wouldn’t mind getting relaxed in the sauna, for a while.” Sam nodded, accepting my suggestion immediately and, taking me by the hand, he led me downstairs. We undressed in the shower room, and stepped into the warm, cedar-scented chamber. We laid out our towels, and sat on the upper bench, as we listened to the flames of the heater starting up, and the rocks on the top of the heater crackling.
I leaned over and gave Sam a peck on the lips. “So, what do you remember about our first lunch, at the bistro?”
Sam scratched his head and smiled, “Well, my strongest vision is of you crossing the street, as I looked out the window from the corner table. Your long hair was swinging back and forth, and there was energy – vitality – in your steps, as you ran across the street. And then, as you approached the table, I saw your smile, your sparkling eyes, the smooth skin of your face. You were the most beautiful woman I had ever seen … and you still are.” Sam leaned over and kissed me, our mouths opening, and tongues doing a familiar dance.
Then, Sam continued, “And, I remember you telling me things. Like how your boyfriends never satisfied you, although one of them had spanked you.” We were both chuckling. After all the spanking we’d done in the past year, I hardly remembered that I’d told Sam about that insignificant event.
Sam said, “And you said that you wanted adventure, experimentation, … and ‘rough’ sex.” Now, Sam frowned. “Actually, this is the first time in a year that I’ve remembered that part. We’ve had a little adventure,” Sam smiled at me, “and quite a bit of ‘experimentation’ … but I don’t think I’ve ever given you what you asked for that day: ‘rough’ sex.”
Sam was shaking his head, “Of course, I’ve spanked you and then helped you have an orgasm, or made love to you afterward, but I’ve always viewed sex as something that should be caring and loving, not something that should be coarse or adversarial; although I’m aware that some women have rape fantasies. And you had your pirate fantasy – not exactly rape, but the way you described it, pretty rough before the pirate finally had his way with you.”
I was nodding. And Sam had done a good job of role-playing the pirate scene during my birthday party, even dragging me by my hair. But, as he’d said, he never really treated me rough during sex.
Sam gave me the evil eye, and said, “Maybe, I should make it up to you … and have some rough sex with you this afternoon?”
That sounded like it could be interesting; something different than we’d done. Which was amazing, as it seemed that we had ‘done’ almost everything, over the past year. My mind filled with a blur of images from our ‘playing’ together.
We laughed, and I maneuvered myself so that my legs were around Sam, one between him and the cedar paneling of the sauna, and the other across his lap. Then, I put my arms around him, and we kissed – much more seriously this time.
When we came up for air, Sam chuckled, and asked, “So what do you remember, from our first lunch together?”
It was hard to believe, but thinking back, I actually remembered most of our discussion during lunch being about biotech and genetic engineering, my school plans and career choices. But there were quite a few things I remembered about Sam, and our discussion after we’d finished eating.
“Well, I remember how handsome you were, although you seemed a little stiff.” Sam cocked his head, and I added, “Until you told me how beautiful you thought I was, and that you wanted to make passionate love to me.” I was laughing, now, remembering bits of our conversation.
Sam was indignant, “I never said anything like that!” He folded his arms across his chest, in a defensive posture.
As I laughed, I said, “Yes, you did, Sam. You told me you were heterosexual, but then said we would probably never have sex.” Sam squinted his eyes, and I could tell his brain was searching its databanks for memories of our discussion.
“You then told me there were a lot of things that two people could do that didn’t involve sex, and you said that you were interested in ‘fetishes’. You wanted to share fantasies, and said you would propose how we might play together.”
Sam was shaking his head again. “That seems pretty ‘forward’ of me, for the first time we got together. I didn’t really come on to you that aggressively, did I?”
I nodded, “Actually, Sam, you did. You were pushing pretty hard. At the time, I found it amusing, and just thought you were trying to demonstrate your openness. I didn’t really think we would actually do anything together. But, I was intrigued to hear about your fantasies, especially after you said I might think you were ‘psycho’.”
As the rocks on the sauna heater crackled, Sam wiped the sweat from his brow; it was now, getting hot in here. “It’s amazing that I didn’t scare you off, telling you all that.”
I chuckled, “Well, you probably would have scared off most women. But I took it as a challenge.” Now I laughed, and droplets of sweat flew from the tip of my nose, “I guess you’ve given me a lot of ‘challenges’, since then.”

FRIENDS’ EXPERIENCE is an intimate exploration of kinks and fetishes by an unlikely couple, with thoughtful and philosophical discussion by the characters, and graphic descriptions of their erotic adventures.
Kelly and Sam continue to expand their sexual horizons by including Kelly’s open-‐minded friends in their fetish play. As Kelly learns more about her past and sets her sights on the future, Sam grows in his acceptance of gay and bisexual relationships. After Kelly and her friends give Sam a memorable birthday party, Sam designs a submission challenge for them. The friends bring their own spirit and enthusiasm to the session, surprising Sam and Kelly with their openness. The event becomes a competition, as Kelly’s friends cope with more and more outrageous experiences. The group learns that each of Kelly’s friends has her limits.
The Experiences series is an epic love story of erotic relationships and sexual desires.

About The Author
An adventuress and traveler, Simone is a sensual being who loves to read stories that excite her. She takes exception to authors who promote their works as ‘dirty’, ‘filthy’, or ‘smutty’: She believes that sex is wonderful in all of its incarnations, and doesn’t shy away from graphic descriptions of realistic sexual experiences, no matter how messy. Her writing is mainly in the ‘literary realism’ style – i.e., it is wild (even outrageous) … but could really happen to you! She values openness in relationships, and demonstrates this through her characters.
Prior to becoming an author, Simone was a nurse. One of her pet peeves is reading erotica that gets simple anatomy wrong! She is continually bewildered by women who haven’t explored their own bodies. Another pet peeve is the mostly hung-up Victorian society prevalent in the U.S. and U.K., and she tries to do her part to change that by introducing people to new sexual and sensual experiences through her erotic writing. The activities in Simone’s books are quite realistic, as she has participated in most of these in ‘real life’, as surreal as it may seem.
Simone is currently completing the Experiences series, which will run an estimated 1,000,000 words! That is why she refers to it as an ‘epic’ romance, although each volume is intended to stand on its own, with a ‘happy for now’ ending. Experiences combines literary style and philosophical discussion by the characters with graphic portrayal of sex in all of its kinks and fetishes. You may not like all of the things Simone’s characters do … but neither do they. Their exploration of new experiences will hopefully motivate some readers to explore their own sexuality to a greater extent.
