aah But better than is written porn it gives your brain a vaginal But better than is written porn it gives your brain a vaginal it records thoughts rather than exclusively images Telepathy on a budget Well in theory What I liked most was the recurring exploration of vicarious pleasure something Abby and Jim both indulge in many permutations And then there s Jim relishing second hand romance novels They weren t identical because every one of them had been read They looked handled All of their pages were turned Turned by women I felt as if I were lifting a towel that was still damp from a woman s shower Hundreds of female orgasms could be inferred from the books themselves You didn t need to invade anybody s privacy It was all there in the pliability and thumbedness of the book My copy is second hand pliable and thumbed but with no sign of intimate interaction before or after I read it Image Sources Phone cable Box of tissues Phone with knickers Used books I m sure this high rating probably reflects poorly on me but I don t care I enjoyed the hell out of this smutty little book Perhaps it s only modesty and some form of self conscious restraint that prevent me from awarding it the final star The structure and dialogue reminded me of Richard Linklater s Beyond Sunrise Both have this awkward yet somehow too perfectly scripted flow but nevertheless possess an endearing God Passes By unashamed honesty which despite thenrealistic nature of the fantasy manages to capture something essentially sweet and human in this case the simple need to talk and to make an honest personal connection Both Linklater and Baker wonderfully capture those anxious beautiful moments of connecting profoundly and nexpectedly with someone for the first time Maybe I m just a softie but this kind of thing just makes me effusively happy Oh and the sex stuff was pret.

Ty good too Do you know why emoticons exist The theory in psychology is that a large portion of communication is nonverbal and an even larger portion of this is actually specifically facial So what happens when you take seeing someone out of the picture I liked your voice What are you wearing which hand and that sort of thing I am left to wonder if perhaps phone sex party lines might be the reason men can no longer read body language Gentleman crossed arms means don t approach This book is interesting in the
Sense That It Takesthat it takes in a very small moment of time Perhaps I missed the long craze but growing p I remember chat rooms and phone lines becoming a very big deal and I mean they actually do still exist I totally see commercials for them but people don t Searching for Lincolns Ghost use them in the same way Not that people stopped hookingp what with skype and all it seems silly that they shouldn t get a nice view as well So this book carries with it a sense of nostalgia and innocence yeah I said that There is something pure about the characters stepping away from the men asking about bra size and yes the book is one long sexual fantasy but it isn t one that is terribly out of the ordinary except perhaps the part about the painters Where the french attempt to go bigger brasher and Baker gives Best Filipino Stories us only what truly exists for two people in the moment they exist This is something anyone could have done maybe ten years ago Before ASL and suicidegirls On the other hand this is one of those books I take on the subway and then pray that someone isn t reading over my shoulder It happens I had to stop reading de sade on the subway because of it There s such a diversity of opinions concerning this book that I can t bring myself to take sides Instead I presentYour cut out and keep do it yourself Vox reviewing kitThis ground breakingtediousoverhypedshort novel does for phone sex what Last Tango in Paris Lady Chatterley s Lover Death in the Afternoon The Bell Jar Ben Hur did for sodomygamekeepersbullfightingsuicidechariot racing The rest of this review is available elsewhere the location cannot be given for Goodreads policy reasons 5 This is the most disgusting thing I read this October When I read this I had no idea what Nicholson Baker looked like and thought to myself before googling him that he ll endp resembling Charles Bukowski or some pervy looking guy or something so got a bit of a surprise when I discovered he looked like someone who might run one of those countryside walking clubs Anyway this book was pretty funny and pretty sexy too whilst reading it but without any sort of lasting impression after their climax VoxIf you are a slang and vocabulary junkie who can read inappropriate adult material then I very highlyrecommend Nicholson Baker As Your New Baker as your new author I laughed so hard out loud and alone while reading this book I learned so many new terms for body parts and acts of sin from VoxOf course ten years after the book came out they re common terms
NOT BETWEEN YOU AND I OF COURSE WE REbetween you and I of course We re polite when we speak on an adult chat line to each otherVox is a very short book less than a hundred pages I believe The whole book is one just one telephone conversation between a man and woman on an adult telephone chat line Yet another book that I found a free copy of at Earthworks Recycling Probably a first edition cause mine is a hardback I never would have found this book otherwise God I am so lucky The junk business rulesThis book surprised me so much One conversation for the whole book Very direct vocabulary The two characters are not shy and neither should you be if you read it Give me a call and we ll talk about Vox. One connection Their seduction through conversation begins hesitantly and then becomes erot.
Nicholson Baker Õ 4 reviewThe format and premise of this book is definitely going to be memorable for me I read it because i m currently in monkey brain mode after restore me and I can only handle easy ick smutty books This book certainly delivered My main thought about this book is I wish I
would ve read it for a book club I have sove read it for a book club I have so thoughts and estions bumping around my head and I almost wish I had a professor teaching it to me so I could fully delve into the subtleties and read in between the lines Jim was such an interesting narrator and even by the end of the book I couldn t decide if he was creepy or respectable My only complaints are that sometimes the anecdotes the characters share are too dragged out and become cumbersome and also for a book that takes place eually between two callers it seems very male centric I wanted Abby s sex life to be fleshed out just as much as Jim s but he took Dances Through Glass up a lot of the real estate on the call Maybe i ll lower my rating of this book the it settles but I did enjoy my reading experience Inderlined a lot of otes about sex and porn that made me think I liked this Right now it s 1151PM later when the review is complete and I would rather be munching a shellfish platter than writing this review but here goes That was not an innuendo in case you were worried However it is a little known fact that men are attracted to oysters as it s the closest they can get to cunnilingus in food form I was told this at a marine snack shack in Orkney So Two people dial a sex chat line switch to a private room and have a natural conversation that culminates in have a natural conversation that culminates in masturbation That is Vox I think we can safely say without a moment s hesitation this book is Romeo Juliet for the postmodern age Right It s now 1154PM I m off to bed I liked this What surprised me about this book was just how boring it was I d purchased it in college after having gotten to know as much as one can know someone you can t trust over several months of almost daily calls the random phone sex caller at my college And a Vox Sounds almost like an expletive It s Latin for voice But also a US news website A children s book I read to my then eight year old Vox pop Ultravox and so back to voiceThis short book reads as the transcript of the conversation between two strangers Abby and Jim who connect one to one via a sex line in the early 1990s The brain is the sexiest organ and the voice is a conduit from one mind to another pitch timbre accent and intonation determine the hearer s response at least as much as the words themselves The right voice can raise one s spirits heart rate and libido than any oiled six pack As Marshall McLuhan said The medium is the message But reading about voices talking about intimate things what s that like It excites me ite a bit to tell you that I m going to tell you It is inherently prurient and voyeuristic but probably tame compared with Fifty Shades and everything is at at least one remove you read about the fantasy of hearing or reading about or watching other people talk about or act out their fantasies This is not my Merciless (Dominion, usual fare and I m too conflicted for my star rating to have any meaning Hence two short reviews in contrastFeeble Smut for the Body When I come inside it feels mystical but muffled it s as if I don t feel the perimeter of my cock any because that s merged with her it s melted away and all I feel is the technical interior conduit structure of the thing and the bulb of come swelling and all that I lose a sense of outer boundaries UghAbby mentions yeast infections four times in thirty pages How is that sexy And there s a long list of things that Jim is not aroused by including pool. A man and a woman strangers to each other residents of distant cities have both called an
