Blessing or Curse?

by Annabeth Leong

Deirdre sat naked at the table with a jar of peanut butter, a cheap plastic ruler, and a hopeful grin.

"Oh for Christ's sake, honey."

"I'm curious…"

"About what? How do you come up with this shit?"

"I made a joke. Then I started wondering…"

I put down my purse and sighed. I had curiosity to thank for our relationship. The night we met, I'd been more than happy to help Deirdre figure out whether she could come from sitting on the seat of a running motorcycle.

On the other hand, my hip still smarted from where I'd banged it in my haste to get out of the bathroom at the automotive store while wearing a makeshift strap-on harness we'd constructed entirely from items we'd found in the aisles.

She batted her eyelashes at me. "Please…"

I kept thinking I ought to put a stop to this foolishness, but damn it, I was curious, too. I hauled her to her feet and gave her a sharp crack across the ass with the ruler. That part didn't need to be figured out.

Dierdre whimpered. Fuck, that sound turned me on.

"Okay," I said. "Fine. Where does the peanut butter go?"

  1. Yes - where does the Peanut butter go??

    I am imagining something involving a dog with a long tongue and female Chinese acrobats.

    1. See I'm glad I didn't make it clear, because if I had, we wouldn't have this comment...

  2. All I can think of is that the peanut butter could have a gag-like effect in the mouth, muting cries of pain. As to what effect peanut butter might have in other orifices, I'd just as soon not speculate. (Hmm, would jelly be an antidote, or an accessory?)

  3. My thought was gag, yes. I considered making that explicit in the story, but then I decided it was more in the spirit of what I was trying to do to make the reader speculate.

    I really did make a joke recently about writing an erotic story about peanut butter and a ruler, so here you have it...

  4. This little story is definitely in the spirit of Curiosity. (I was thinking of peanut butter in another orifice, to be licked out while providing some newly-discovered health benefits.)

    1. I love the health angle! Vitamins are always a good reason to do something! :)

  5. Have you ever seen what a dog does with peanut butter? Look it up on the internet. Then imagine the staying power. Wheeee!

    1. Hahaha. Yeah, leaving this to reader imagination was definitely the right way to go. :)

    1. Someone I know showed me a kink video recently that used a substance a person hated in a very compelling scene of consensual torment. So if one is into that sort of thing, hating peanut butter doesn't have to stop you!

  7. I'm afraid I'm in the same camp as some of the wondering others. But it really doesn't matter. In fact, it might be a better story if you leave things to the reader's imagination!

    1. I did try endings where I specified the use for the peanut butter, but they felt much weaker to me. I wouldn't say this story is my best work. It might be interesting sometime to consider a way to make something like this more satisfying...
