"B.O.B. and Me" by Lostgirl (firstname.lastname@example.org). Guest review by BitBard (email@example.com).
A woman's sexuality is terribly exciting to men. I've heard it's even terribly exciting to women. In recent discussions on ASSD the vote is pretty much in the minority that men masturbating or men engaged in sexual activities with each other is exciting. However let two women start touching and petting each other and the blood pressure starts to rise. A woman alone, stimulating herself to orgasm may just be a universal turn-on.
B.O.B. in this story stands for "Battery Operated Boyfriend" otherwise known as a vibrator. A toy the woman of this story is going to eventually have a very good time with. Before that happens though, this story gives us a wonderfully rare glimpse into a woman's emerging sexuality told in an engaging and humorous manner.
By the time B.O.B takes center stage the reader is left feeling that maybe women actually enjoy masturbation for the same reason guys do. When B.O.B. starts buzzing with excitement the descriptions are all the more vivid because behind the universal turn-on of a woman wrapped in ecstasy there is the thrill of knowing that behind the erotic image is an erotic person.
This is an excellent short turn-on.

"Latin Night" by Lostgirl (firstname.lastname@example.org). http://search.dejanews.com/getdoc.xp?AN=376723395
I think my review of this story may be a little unfair. Midway through the story, I lost interest in it. I finished the story, but it seemed to me that I was missing something. I think the problem is that this story depends heavily on familiarity with the type of dancing in which the characters participate. This type of dancing is not my thing, and so I became distracted by reading for information (to figure out what was happening). Someone already familiar with the dancing might be able to zero in on the emotions, which are the author's main interest.
