Review: The Art of Mutual Pleasure by K.A. Merikan

Title: The Art of Mutual Pleasure
Author: K.A. Merikan
Genre: M/M Historical Erotica
Type: Standalone Novella
POV: Third Person

Benjamin Snowley was plagued by an embarrassing affliction. His fondness for self pleasure brought him great distress and he believed it was the reason for the decline of his health. And it didn’t help that Frederick Cory, a man from his past that started his problem kept challenging his will. But a consultation with a radical doctor brought him hope for a cure. Thus began his journey of self discovery that would either save him or bury him deeper than he was willing to go.

He had loved being but a vessel for a man’s seed.

If this is how hot historical erotica could be, I would have started reading the genre a long time ago. Regency era is not my thing, but I was pleasurably surprised how much I enjoyed this one. Well, the filth certainly helped tremendously lol!

It didn’t hurt to have a doctor’s finger up there but a prick? It would surely be a painful kind of therapy.

Benjamin’s naivety was a constant source of amusement. He was so desperate for a cure that he would do anything if he believed it could help. I like Frederick’s role in the story especially with his libertine ways and how he influenced Benjamin without actually pushing him.

Speaking became too difficult when every one of Frederick’s thrusts made Benjamin moan, and each time the cock brushed that spot inside of him that caused him so much pleasure, Benjamin writhed under his lover as if his body couldn’t wait to meet the prick again.

The sex scenes were plenty with various deliciously dirty situations. I’m proud of sweet young Benjamin who was actually daring and experimental.

Benjamin was on a road to hell, paved with wasted semen, so that even the back alleys of London didn’t pose that much of a threat any more.

The Art of Mutual Pleasure is a delightful tale of a man’s journey of sexual awakening. It would appeal to readers looking for a lighthearted, short and sexy read.
