Boring. And this guy seemed really proud of the fact that he was a bit (understatement) quick on the draw. He needed a lot more stamina and a lot better imagination. ( )

Incredibly filthy. Gets old fast, but includes the entire universe of kinks so there must be something for everyone. Scope, size are overwhelming to point of illness. First five minutes interesting, after that tiring and almost disgusting.

Memoir by "Walter," possibly partly fictional, but clearly written to inform and not just for porn. Of historical interest. ( )
