A very happy St. Pat’s weekend to you all, and more importantly – a very happy Eroticon! Hope everyone is having an amazing time and I wish I could be there with all of you. xx
Memories are jigsaw puzzles with loads of missing and misshapen pieces. I don’t remember what we were drinking that night (…were we drinking or smoking? Probably the latter…) or how we all got together; I remember vaguely what their apartment looked like, but have no idea what neighborhood it was in. At some point, we – myself, a classmate from a writing class, his roommate, and a coworker on whom I had an immense crush – decided that playing strip Trivial Pursuit would be a smashing idea. This is something I did often in my early twenties – strip board games with coworkers. It was a surreal and exhilarating time, y’all.
The idea is this: Get an answer wrong, take off an item of clothing. Get an answer right, put one on. Play until someone loses all their clothes; everyone else is a winner. I’m not a competitive person in general; once in a while the small and fierce competitor in a tiny, cobweb-covered corner of my brain comes out swinging, but I don’t think I tried particularly hard this night.
We continued playing until most or all of us were naked; the next thing I remember is my coworker going off with the roommate to his room while I straddled my classmate on his kitchen floor, my arms and legs wrapped around him, riding his dick while he fingered my ass. I wasn’t even really attracted to him, though he was a good-looking guy; I was just mega-horny from being naked with my coworker. Hearing her cries from the next room filled me with an even more eager lust, and I used my classmate’s cock to get off.
Not too long after – actually, who knows how long? Time stands still when you’re stoned – they came out of the roommate’s room. My classmate and I were still sitting on the floor, though not fucking anymore; my coworker came over to me, grabbed my hand, pulled me up, and walked me over to my classmate’s bedroom. She dragged me in and locked the door behind us (to the sounds of muffled protests), then pushed me down on his bed. Er – his mattress on the floor, in any case. She spread my legs and went to town on my pussy, and I entered a dream-like state. I don’t know if I came; I do know that it felt fucking amazing and that I wanted my face in her cunt. I wanted my hands and mouth all over her body, really. She told me later that I tasted like chocolate chip cookies (I wish!).
Being tangled up with her in the dark, my heart pounding – kissing her and tasting my juices on her lips – was enough to confirm that yes, I was straight-up-and-down-the-line bisexual. She wasn’t the first woman I’d slept with, but she was the first woman I had strong feelings for that I had. She was also the first married woman that I had sex with.
That night – that life – seems a million miles away. I see it through the prism of highways and oceans, fractured and foggy. I kept in touch with my classmate and stayed with him in New Orleans while I looked for an apartment there, though we never had sex again; his roommate died young, which was devastating. My coworker, whom I eventually came to love, got divorced and remarried and divorced again; the last time I saw her, she was preaching the gospel of Ayn Rand, and I haven’t spoken to her since.
I still love a good game of Trivial Pursuit more than any other board game; I don’t play very often these days, but when I do, my clothes stay on.

We never expected them to be so red or so lustrous. Walking along a burnt and dusty road, grateful to have finally left a trail of children behind us, we crested a hill overlooking a cerulean lake and noticed clusters of bushes littered with scarlet berries. Neither of us had seen coffee cherries before and could only guess at what they were based solely on the fact that we were in a coffee-producing region.
Once we arrived at our guesthouse, the owner offered a tour of their coffee processing facility for a small fee; we gladly took the opportunity to learn more. You rolled a cherry between your fingers before pressing it just hard enough so that juices seeped out slowly. Watching your nimble fingers wheeling the berry until its seed poked out its shoulder, glistening and coy, I ripened. You abruptly opened your mouth to make a joke about popping cherries, but thought better of it almost as soon as the thought had formulated.
We were disappointed by how the scent of coffee beans isn’t intoxicating until roasted, fascinated by the silky slime of the beans in their natural state (much like a skull sliced open to reveal a brain), delighted with the contrasting colors of the sloughed-off skins against their innards. Having a tactile experience – any tactile experience – breeds my desire for more, and by the time I’d run my fingers through a scattering of beans left to dry, I was ready to feel all of your textures. The cartilage maze of your ears, the soft spirals of your hair, your layers of blood-warmed skin covering taut muscles.
The countryside sleeps early – farmers who are used to a cock’s awakening have an internal clock that knocks them out as they lie – but we were buzzing all night. Unable to sleep, we crept through rows of pale moon beans until we reached the shores of Lake Kivu below. We’d intended to sit on the sand and canoodle a bit, but as soon as your lips touched mine, everything was on the table. You slipped my Cool Max T-shirt and sports bra over my head, not put off by days of hiking stench; I slid my much-too-short pajama pants off your long legs, and we edged our way to the water.
We inched in together, but I was the first to submerge, diving in fingertips first, coming up to smooth my hair back and wipe the parasite-infested water from my eyes. My breasts shone in the half moonlight – incentive enough for you to swim over to me to cup them lovingly in your massive hands. You kissed my neck and I encircled your cock in my curling fingers, stroking it to the music in my head. We glided deeper into the water, and I wrapped my legs around your waist. You stood deep enough to allow you to grip my hips and pump my body along the length of your cock, the buoyancy of the water aiding your effort. I tried to hold on, but your seal skin made me feel like a drunk girl on a mechanical bull. My hips bucked this way and that, my hands fishtailing all over your back.
A sudden breeze chilled me; I flopped backward into the water, dolphin-kicking away toward the beach. You followed, grabbing my ankle and dragging me back. “Not so fast,” you said, wrapping your arms around me in a vice grip. “You owe me one more kiss.” I leaned in, soaking, til my lips were just grazing yours, and I breathed into you. “Bring me back up that hill and I’ll give you much, much, more,” I replied, my promise fluttering in echoes, bouncing off the silent, drying beans which were winking at us under the moon.
The Engineer and I both hiked the same trail in Rwanda, but not together; this is a fantasy of what I would have liked to happen had we been hiking in tandem.
