Night-ClassesRole playing, corporal punishment and cuckoldry are staples of modern erotica, although usually you don’t find them all in one compact novella. Many fans of erotic literature will be pleased to learn that Peter Moon has woven all three of those elements artfully into his latest e-book, Night Classes, a naughty tale with female domination overtones that chronicles an affair between an ex-college professor and her former student, and the impact it has on her marriage and life.

The story begins with a chance meeting between the teacher and her much-younger former pupil, now a successful journalist. After helping Hannah transport packages to her car on an upper floor of a parking garage, Lionel stretches out their conversation and launches into a flirtation that includes sharing his long-ago fantasies of being punished by Hannah for his bad behavior in her classroom. Against her better judgment, she is receptive to his attentions largely because her marriage is unfulfilling and loveless. Ultimately they retire to her home for an impromptu rendezvous utilizing improvised props for corporal punishment that morphs into an intense sexual interlude.

Shortly after her husband returns from a business trip, Hannah’s emerging dominant side inspires her to command him to submit to a severe caning. An unintended result of the thrashing she inflicts is Ronald’s expressed hope that they might repeat the scenario as an expression of some semblance of intimacy in their marriage. When Lionel learns of this development, he suggests that they not hide their relationship from her husband and make him a true cuckold. Part One ends with Hannah asking a confused Ronald, “Do you know what a cuckold husband is?”

Part Two begins with an artifice in which the narrator claims to have hired Peter Moon to write Part One as a fictionalized version of a true story. From there the story continues in virtually the same literary voice and details the period of sexual abandon and cuckoldry that plays out until the trio finally drifts apart. The ample sex and pleasure/pain scenes are well conceived and written without being coarse or brutal. When combined with the literate storyline and accessible prose, they succeed in making this book an enjoyable erotic read for both timid and adventurous readers alike.

About Jim Lyon

Jim Lyon began writing erotica in the mid 1990s and served as story editor for the now-defunct Ownme.com before his first femdom-themed erotic novellas, Uncharted Territory and The Accidental Domme, were published as e-books by Sizzler Editions. Jim is originally from the San Francisco Bay Area. He left high school in his senior year to live the bohemian life in New York City's Greenwich Village and Lower East Side. Not being a big fan of cold weather and crowded tenements, Jim returned to the West Coast within six months and lived in Berkeley during the tumultuous mid to late 1960s and early 1970s. While there, his claims to fame include being folksinger Malvina Reynolds' neighbor/tenant and part owner of the Northside Theater, a repertory cinema of considerable renown. After leaving Berkeley, Jim put himself through college and earned a B.A. in Journalism from USC. His eclectic career since then has encompassed editing, writing, business management, social work, teaching, and web publishing, with stops in northern and southern California, Hawaii, Florida and Oregon.
