Female footwear on model in studioCity PonyTrumpet of DestinyRoxy Katt writes kinky lesbian erotica with femdom overtones that generally contains a fair sampling of wicked humor. She recently began releasing some of her stories, which originally appeared in anthologies featuring stories by a variety of authors, as stand-alone Smashwords publications. It is important for readers to be aware before purchasing them that these are short stories — 4000 to 5000 words — so as not to be disappointed by their brevity and relatively thin plots. The good news is that they are exceptionally well-written short stories that are both kinky and funny, a rare treat indeed.

My favorite of the three shorts given to me for review is The City Pony. It is an unconventional pony girl tale that chronicles the budding relationship between two women who work in the same building in Toronto; one is an office worker with an unfulfilled pony fetish, and the other a maintenance worker and recent transplant from Alberta (apparently a largely agricultural province). The affair begins with a series of “chance” meetings in the building’s elevator and the playful bantering conversations that take place between them there. Ultimately the women arrange to meet socially and the Albertan turns the outing into a publicly humiliating and arousing adventure for the wannabe pony girl. The interlude is laugh-out-loud funny and thoroughly enjoyable.

The other two stories, The Trumpet of Destiny and The Ant Queen, involve situations that inadvertently evolve into sexual liaisons and relationships via a humorous and humiliating turn of events. One features a jilted woman who goes to the studio of “the other woman” under the pretext of inspecting her artwork and winds up venting her anger and frustration by spanking the woman soundly. Unexpectedly, this action leads to both women embracing their latent lesbian tendencies and ditching the cheating man in their lives. The second details the beginning of a D/s relationship between a young lesbian and her best friend’s mother after the younger woman takes advantage of the sexy and somewhat imperious mother who has accidentally locked herself into a rubber and plastic ant costume. To enjoy these stories, it helps to have a naughty streak and an appreciation of devilish humor.

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.
