Synopsis

Everyone remembers their first time. Although I don’t think that this young boy really wants to remember his first time. Especially when it was so… gruesome.

Thoughts

Everyone’s first time is memorable. I just hope that it’s not memorable like this… because this is just downright, horrifyingly disturbing. Makes me incredibly glad for my awkward, uncomfortable “first time”… at least it wasn’t like this!!!

I am completely fascinated by the human body, our inner workings and what makes us tick. It’s probably why I love medical shows so much… they’re pretty good at exploring that aspect of my fascination. Yet, this short tale has kind of put me off for the time being… there’s fascination. And there’s just this. This horrifying level of ick… but I want share too much more because it’s well worth a read and you need the surprise like I had it!

Like so many stories in the Alien Sex collection, this is super weird and super uncomfortable. Which of course means, I kind of loved it. it was brilliant and entertaining. Dark and twisted. And really made me think a little more about my own “first time”.
