Review: Wet

I’m taking another break from the sex toys to review some erotica for you guys today.  I haven’t been a huge fan of erotica, but I figure I just haven’t found the type for me yet.  When I saw Wet – Noir Le Chat on Vibrator.com’s adult bookstore I was attracted to the cover so I hoped it would the erotica I had been searching for.

The cover

Like I said, the cover is what attracted me to Wet.  The background of the book is black with “WET” printed vertically along the edge and the main image is a a black and white shot of a portion of the upper half of a womans torso.  The woman also looks oiled up and has water droplets on it.  From the image, I assumed the stories would be more water related.  However, the author was going another route with the wet concept and the back of the book says “Sensual Stories, Deliciously Delicate, Erotically Eloquent and always guaranteed to make you Wet.”  The script that’s written in is cute with little hearts in it etc and there is also an image of a water droplet on the back.  The only thing I didn’t like bout the cover of the book is it shows lots of finger prints on the black background.

The book itself is 136 pages and is a standard size paper back book.  The side of the book only says “WET” and “Noir Le Chat” so it is fairly discreet if you were to place it on a bookshelf.  The print in the book is fairly large, it seems much larger than other books its size.

Wet consists of seven short stories that are supposed to be a ‘nightcap’.  I suppose that means these are supposed to be a good story to read before bed and before having a little fun.  The stories are called “First Night – the conversation”, “Second Night – the quiet storm”, “Third Night – he knows his name”, “Fourth Night – the best advice I ever received”, “Fifth Night – he’s a tequila man”, “Sixth Night – the introduction”, “Seventh Night – for football lovers”.  The story names I didn’t really have a problem with.  My biggest problems with the stories were the so called “intellectually erotic and undeniably unique” metaphors used.  Most of the stories didn’t really notice  in the first few stories but they really showed themselves in “he’s a tequila man”.  It first hit me when I read these lines:

“But he created such an impassioned feeling inside of me, it seemed to be all for me as he hit my treasured pleasure spot below again and again.”

“With each hit, my mouth water, I licked and bit on my lips and felt selfish for enjoying this deliciously juiced feeling inside my tender box.”

Treasured pleasure spot below?  Tender box?  Seriously?  I thought I was reading erotica, not Harliquine romance.  These types of metaphors just totally kill the mood for me and they also seem contradictory to the rest of the test because several times they say “ass” so why not use pussy, cute, or vagina?  I was also starting to kinda get into the story too and had they just said pussy, I probably would have enjoyed it, but as soon as I read “treasured pleasure spot” my interested dropped.  I almost just stopped reading, but I did at least finish that story.

A peek inside

Another thing I didn’t like about the stories is they drop brand names.  Oh, but they’re not real brand names either.  In two of the stories they mentioned “Blackcat lingerie” which I Googled an I couldn’t find any actual brand called that.  Another story also mentioned “Choo’s”.  the “he’s a tequila man” story talked about “Herradura Anejo” tequila, “La Petite Coquette” panty and bra set and “Diane von Fustenberg” dress.  To me, this completely interrupted the action.  A description of the clothing would be fine, but I feel like I’m trying to be sold something when a ‘brand’ name is dropped.

The stories are also all fairly similar.  The feature a man and woman couple and are from the woman’s perspective.  The men are just kind of there, they have no dialog and very little action other than thrusting.  The men are also of similar body structure and most seemed to have a beard or goatee.  To have such a romance novel feel to it, there was very little of a personal connection between the characters.  As far as the sex goes, all the scenes are very vanilla and pretty much straight sex.  If you’re looking for something with a bit of kink this is definitely not it.

Overall, I was not a fan of  Wet: A Nightcap for Each night of the Week.  It seemed too much like a romance novel with very little variety in the stories.  I’m sure there are some people that will enjoy this, especially those looking for more romantic soft-core erotica.  I just found that this was not for me.  I didn’t like the metaphors at all and especially didn’t like the ‘brand’ names that were spouted.  I suppose this is a true case of why you shouldn’t judge a book by it’s cover.  You can find Wet on Vibrator.com and be sure to check out Vibrator.com on Facebook.
