Tasting Honeys after the Honeymoon

Harriet Beecher Stowe wrote, " When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn."

In my new story, "Honeys after the Honeymoon", tight places are rather pleasant. This is a sequel to "I left my heart, and her vibrator, in San Francisco." While it doesn't quite qualify, in my mind, as do-over, the characters are based on real people. As the plot thickens, there will be some pleasant variants on stressful situations variously in the workplace, and with health issues. It's nice to be able to decree inherited wealth, and also freedom from legal constraints on consensual sex.

This is a universe where there are no conventional sexually transmitted diseases, although early cybersex could result in carpal tunnel syndrome.

As in many of my stories, there are autobiographical aspects, although I won't necessarily say which details. They do give me an opportunity to examine my past, my hopes and fantasies, and, I hope, future directions.
