I lie, warm and relaxed, on my stomach, my legs slightly parted. A crackling fire in the hearth heats the room and there are scented candles casting a comforting glow over the walls. Our nest is perfectly arranged. I have learnt to relax in this splayed position over the past couple of years. My wrists are tied with silk to the bedposts and I wait with increasing impatience for the game to start. — from "Silk" by Michael Wilkinson
He reaches into the bath, and with a wordless question she answers in her smile, pulls the plug and they both watch as the water subsides, exposing her body, covered with snow drifts of bubbles, and swirls of receding water. Extending a hand he pulls her to her feet, and reaches for the towel, then expertly starts to dry her. This unexpected expression of devotion creates such a sensation of care and delight she laughs, then reaches up and kisses him soundly, dripping bath water down his beard and onto his shirt. They hold each other, kissing softly. — from "The Loving" by Rees Campbell
