Rating: 3 Cups
A city-council member, a school volunteer, and a grandmother, Minerva Richmond has a full life. But when her friends dare her to take a class on sex toys she cannot renege, even if it is the most embarrassing thing she has ever done.
Dan Dudley has watched Minerva from afar for quite some time. She has always seemed standoffish, which has prevented him from making a move.
When Minerva and Dan are thrown together with an uninhibited group for a class on sex toys, their interest is peeked. Maybe Minerva can get past her embarrassment, meet the terms of the bet, and come out with a man.
A class of sex toys in the back room of an adult store would make anyone nervous. Minerva has a very prim and proper view of the world that makes the extreme embarrassment and clumsiness of her character very understandable. Running into a long-time acquaintance, Dan makes the familiarity between them very believable. It is a great short story that could be started and finished in your next thirty minute wait at the doctor’s office.
