I spent Thanksgiving at my brother's house. Besides my brother, his darling wife, and me, the festivities included our parents, another brother, two sisters, everybody's spouse, and rugrats all around. I was the only one single and childless. I always preferred it that way, but this year I was a little envious of them and their broods.
When I got back to the city, I called Susan Worthington. Susan and I go back a long way, nine years to be exact. We met when I was a sophomore stud and she was a bright new frosh. On our first date, we went to my dorm room and fucked until we both were sated. We've dated ever since. Nothing steady. We both play the field, but we are friends. In fact, she is the best friend I have.
"Hi, Susan," I said when she answered the phone.
"Well, hi, Santa. How are those big Christmas balls hanging?"
"They need polishing, sweet cakes."
"That's not my fault. I polish them every chance I get."
"How about dinner tonight?" I said.
"Just dinner? I was hoping for a sleepover."
That was one of the things I liked about Susan. She never complained about what I did when I wasn't with her or what I did for a living when most women would complain loudly. She just wanted me.
"A sleepover is what I had in mind," I replied.
"What time?" she asked.
"Better make it seven. I've got the first of the Christmas parties tonight."
"Seven it is. Have fun at your party, Santa."
I'm an unlikely Santa Claus. I'm only twenty-eight, which is far from the right age of three hundred and something. I'm six six, which is about a foot-maybe a foot and a half-taller than the jolly old elf. I weigh two hundred fifty pounds, which is about the right weight for Santa, but mine is all muscle. I keep it that way with regular hard workouts.
I do have a thick beard that extends half way down my chest. I started it in high school as a joke, but Molly Swingmore thought it was a turn-on. I kept the beard even after I dumped Molly because I liked it. The women love it or hate it, and some who thought they'd hate it end up loving it. They like it better white, so I keep it that way year round. My hair is longish, wavy, and coal black. In the Christmas season I color it white.
I went to college on a football scholarship, blew out my knee when I was a junior, and was told my football days were over. Fate plays strange tricks sometimes. After my surgery, the hospital was overflowing with a flu epidemic so I shared a semi-private room. Cecil, the guy next to me, had a knee replacement. He was in his sixties, rich as hell, and an alum of the school I attended. He was a football nut so we got along well.
A woman about thirty-five and classy in a slutty way, if you know what I mean, came in to see Cecil. Her clothes and jewelry were expensive, but the clothes were skimpy and tight and the jewelry was gaudy, and she wore a little too much makeup. Cecil introduced her as Pearl, his wife. Pearl whispered in Cecil's ear.
"Well, ask him," Cecil said.
She stared at me like a starving dog looks at a steak. "Can I see your cock?" she asked.
I stared at Cecil. "Don't worry, Eddie. Pearl plays around. I know it and I don't care. Sometimes I watch and sometimes I join in for a threesome."
I flipped back the covers, pulled my jockeys down, and let my cock free.
"Oh, God, that's soooo nice," she whimpered. She dragged her nails down the shaft, wrapped her fingers around it, and gave it a hard squeeze. "I want to fuck you," she said.
"All right," I replied. "But I'm immobile. You'll have to do it."
Pearl locked the door, stripped off her pantyhose, crawled on the bed, and prepared to mount up.
"Personal foul. Unsportsmanlike conduct," Cecil snapped. We both stared at him. "That's not fair, Pearl," he said softly. "The kid's football career is over and he's going to need money. Offer to pay him."
"I'll give you two hundred dollars if you'll fuck me," Pearl said to me.
"All right," I said.
"Not so fast, Eddie," Cecil said. "You need an agent to help you negotiate the contracts. Let me handle this. Pearl, he's a whole lot better looking and has a much bigger cock than that black guy you're paying to fuck you. Eddie deserves a least double what that guy gets."
"Leroy's a woman pleaser," Pearl said. There was a steely look in her eye. "Maybe Eddie is one of those assholes who doesn't care about the woman."
"Good point. I'll tell you what we'll do. He'll fuck you now for free. If he's good and you're pleased, his fee is a thousand a date, twenty-five hundred for a weekend, and that's one girl only."
"Agreed," Pearl answered greedily. I could feel her pussy dripping on my thigh.
"Not so fast," Cecil said. "We want you to introduce him to your friends. He'll need a stable to live well."
"If I introduce him to my friends, I want some freebies," she said.
"Once a month free," Cecil said.
"Once a week," she countered.
"Twice a month."
"Damnnit, Cecil. I'm your wife. It's your money I'll be paying him."
"Once a week is fine with me," I said.
"Okay. Once a week it is. Do we have a deal?"
"Deal," Pearl said and I echoed her. Pearl clambered onto my bed and promptly impaled herself on my cock as Cecil watched happily.
That's the way I became a gigolo, which was my primary source of income as I finished college and earned a masters. And that income allowed me to start and build my business. Thanks to Pearl I soon had a cadre of willing wealthy women who paid me for sex. I became a Santa Claus because one of the ladies I serviced thought it was cute. I soon came to love the season for all the right, and the wrong, reasons. And I charged an arm and a leg to work the Christmas parties.
Christmas season is hectic. Fortunately, my stable of ladies who pay are usually involved with their own families and social events so I can focus on the Christmas parties. I have different costumes for my different "roles" as Santa. There's the standard suit and padding for the kids parties and something a little sexier for the teens or the adults who aren't sure what kind of party they want. For office parties, I wear a lycra spandex suit without padding. And for certain special occasions, I wear red leotard bottoms and nothing else.
I like company parties best of all. Women who are the epitome of decorum all year long lose their inhibitions and want to spread their legs for sweet old Santa. Maybe it's a payback for all those presents over the years. I usually end up with a pocket full of names and phone numbers. The ones I like, I call. For some reason things were different this year. I didn't see as many that I liked.
On December 17, I was working a company party in a major office building. It was the standard rowdy crowd and I collected an average numbers of names and received an average number of gropes. One darling little number caught my eye. I knew immediately who she was and I wondered if she remembered me. She tried to be discrete as she stood in line to sit on my lap, but her eyes never left me for long.
"Hi, Santa," she said softly when she sat on my lap, her big blue eyes locked onto me.
"Hi, Cindy. How are you?"
"I knew you'd remember me," she beamed.
"I could never forget you, Cindy."
"Eddie, I'd like to talk to you in private."
"I'm through here at four. Why don't you have dinner with me?"
"Oh, I couldn't, but we can talk for an hour or so."
Her name had been Cindy Durwood and we had sat next to each other in freshman biology because of the alphabet. As fate would have it, we had a class together our sophomore year. There we chose to sit together.
Cindy was a living doll, and I wanted to treat her that way. You know-undress her, lay her back, and play with her. She was not quite five feet tall and probably weighed a hundred pounds. She had raven hair she wore short, porcelain skin, a bee-stung lower lip, and huge blue eyes. The effect was the sexiest wood nymph you ever saw, but Cindy didn't act like a nymph. She was modest and demure from her clothes to her actions.
There were damn few girls I wanted that I didn't bed and Cindy was top of the list.
She was waiting when my Santa shift was over and followed me to my car. We sat in the front seat of my Porsche and talked. She'd married Robert Kenyon, who was the love of her life, the only boy she ever had, and all that. I remembered the name. He was the reason she wouldn't date me in college.
I could tell she was ready to talk about what she really wanted to talk about. She was quivering when she said, "One of the girls at the office told me you're a gigolo." I admitted it was true. "Good," she said with a smile. "I'd like to hire you to have sex with me."
"You what?" blurted out of me.
She giggled, reddened, and covered her mouth with her hands, but in seconds her hands fell away as she openly laughed. "Oh, Eddie. I wish I had a picture of your face." She leaned forward conspiratorially. "I knew how much you wanted me, Eddie. It was fun having the biggest stud on campus chasing after me. I'll admit I led you on, and I loved flirting with you, but I never, ever, would have cheated."
"I know," I said.
"Do you want to know why I want to have sex with you?"
"Not really. I just want to do it."
"Why I'm doing it is all important," she said seriously. "Bobby wants me to have sex with another man while he watches. He's been after me for three years to do it and I've always said no. He even had an affair and told me about it, hoping anger would make me have someone else."
She leaned toward me and covered my hand with hers. "I've never cheated on him. Not in high school or college or since we got married. I'm not going to cheat now, but it's not cheating if that's what he truly wants. Don't you agree?"
"Yes, I do. Cheating is when the other party doesn't know."
"He's convinced me it's not cheating, so I'm going to do it. I'll have sex with you while Bobby watches." She sat back and her eyes gleamed. "How much do you charge?"
"You don't have to pay me."
"Yes, I do. Then it's business for you and I'm buying a gift for him. How much?"
I quoted a fee and I didn't go easy on her.
"Deal," she said, extending her hand to shake. She went home to her husband and I went home to a cold and empty house. I called Susan.
"Hi, sweet cakes. Why don't we get together?" I said.
After a strange, long silence she said, "I can't. I've got a date."
"Oh? Who is it?"
"Roy. I told you about him. I think he's getting serious."
"Oh. Well, have fun."
"Thanks. You, too," she said sadly.
After I disconnected, I sat there for a while. I didn't feel like moving. I was exhausted and I hurt deep inside where I'd never hurt before.
Later that evening, Robert Kenyon called and we arranged to meet the following day at their house, which, I discovered when I met them, was in an upwardly mobile middle class neighborhood. His career was flying and they invested her income.
Bobby was about six one, thin, brown hair, and a wide, facile mouth. He shook my hand eagerly as he welcomed me. Cindy, dressed in slacks and a blouse, said hello and shook my hand. They offered me a drink but I passed. I sat in an easy chair and they sat side by side on the couch and held hands. Both were churning with excitement.
"Eddie," Bobby began, "I've wanted to watch Cindy have sex with another man for some time, but she hasn't agreed until now. She's going to do it as my Christmas present. She wants you to be the man and she told me you agreed to do it."
"That's right," I said.
"Good. It's a present for her, too, because you're her fantasy lover." He chuckled. "My knowing shouldn't surprise you. Cindy and I don't have secrets. We want to do it the first time on Christmas day."
"The first time?" I said.
"If this time works out, I'd like do it again. And I want to video all of them."
"You have some scenes in mind?"
"Yes, I do. Have you done anything like that before?"
"Yes, I've done sweet seductions to faux rapes. Sometimes the husband joins in, sometimes he doesn't. But I'll want specific instructions from you, and Cindy's explicit agreement, before I do anything rough."
"Of course," Bobby said. "Does the filming bother you?"
"No," I replied.
"I've got the video equipment and I want to keep the only copy. I need to get a remote controller for the camera."
"I've got a lady friend who's an excellent photographer and she's worked with me before," I said.
"Good. I'll hire her."
We talked a little more and I agreed we'd be there at nine Christmas morning. We shook hands like it was a business deal, which it was, and parted.
Seeing Cindy and Bobby together gave me a large, healthy dose of introspection, which is something I needed. I called Susan from the car phone. "What are you doing tonight?" I asked.
"I've got a date with Roy."
"Please break it and go out with me."
There was a long silence before she said, "Eddie, you've never asked me to break a date for you."
"I know, but I want to be with you tonight."
"Sure, Eddie. What do you want me to wear?" She tried to make her voice light, as if breaking that date and what it meant was unimportant. She didn't quite pull it off.
Susan's wardrobe ran the gamut from conservative, classy, business suits and formal gowns to barely legal slut clothes. She was striking in all of them. Susan was an even six feet tall in her stocking feet. The heels she loved to wear brought her to six four. She was a volleyball star in college and loved all sports. She was a hard-body with legs as long as mine except hers stopped traffic.
She didn't like two of her features, so as soon as we graduated from college, she borrowed the money from me to have rhinoplasty and breast augmentation. I offered to give her the money, but she insisted on paying me back with interest, and she did. She chose a good, strong nose from the surgeon's portfolio. She was a big, strong women with strong features, and her new nose fit beautifully. Her cup size went from B to D. I liked that change, too.
"Why don't you wear the slacks and a sweater? We'll eat casual and then go back to my place."
When I picked her up, she had a hang-up bag and an overnight case with her. After dinner, we went back to my place, coupled like Titans, and she fell asleep lying against me.
As we dressed the next morning, she asked, "What should I tell Roy?"
"Tell him it's over," I said.
"I like him and he's going to ask me to marry him. I might accept."
"I'm twenty-six, Eddie. I'm ready to settle down and have babies."
"I want you to settle down and have babies, but Roy's not the right guy for you."
She stopped dressing to focus completely on me. "How do you know? You've never met him."
"Call it instinct. He's not the right one."
"Who is the right man for me, Mr. Know-it-all?" she challenged.
I dodged her question. "Do you remember Cindy Durwood from college?" I asked.
"Of course I remember her," she snapped.
"Why?" I asked. Susan flushed brightly and didn't speak. There was only one reason for her to remember Cindy and that's evaluation of the competition. I pulled Susan's head back and kissed her fiercely. "I saw her yesterday," I said.
"Are you going after her?"
