Second time reading a collection of erotica

The first collection I read - the 2002 collection - I couldn't listen to the end. It was just too weird, too out of anything am used to, I just couldn't continue. This is better, maybe my sensitivity has dulled. Maybe because it's shorter. A number were a little too much for me though, but some I really liked - like the guy that offered himself for facesitting by 20 or so random women. I kept thinking, he did this for 2 hours??? Really? How didn't he suffocate?
