Screening Party by Dennis Hensley

I'm okay, I'm okay, I'm okay and the doctor's visit is history and Susie Bright's marvelous new collection of erotic (and darkly humorous) stories, Three Kinds of Asking For It helped me get through the worry part. Well, remembering some particularly yummy parts of the first story, "Charmed, I'm Sure" by Eric Albert, helped me get "distracted" enough to sleep, to get me to the doctor's visit and on to better things. Hey, if a story can do that, don't you just want to rush right out and buy that book. You bet you do!

Each of the three novellas is as mucho caliente in the erotic department, as it is funny. I especially liked the well-written "Bending," about a woman's very interesting fetish and the lengths she goes to satisfy that fetish, and what comes after that. Hot-hot-hot stuff and really good reading too. Never a dull moment or badly written sex scene, this book has every thing to keep anyone happy for hours and give one ideas if one, say has a new partner, or playmate. Find it and get it and share it with everyone you know, whether you need distraction from intense appointments or just a little diddling fun, Three Kinds of Asking For It is the right ticket.

And, if you want to laugh your head off and never see any film the same again, pick up Dennis Hensley's Screening Party, which disses some of the most well-known films in ways that'll make Siskel and Ebert look like idiots.

Inviting his friends, Lauren, Marcus, Dr. Beaverman and Tony, the video store salesman over for a series of "screening parties," Hensley takes apart Pretty Woman, Basic Instinct and even takes on The Sound of Music, all with hilarious effects. Oh yes, and there are little tidbits about the films' stars, including some interesting dish about Barbra Streisand when she was shooting A Star Is Born, and the extras in Flashdance. All totally golden and deliciously wicked and funny as heck.

I found myself reading this book on the bus across town, in between my workout and shower and in every spare second I had to spare. It's that funny. So, if you are in need of some moments of mirth, do pick up Screening Party, and again, share it, share it, so everyone can have a good laugh.
