Passion Play

Passion Play is third story in the Celestial Soul-Mates stories, where a bunch of women are kidnapped to space by a bunch of horny guys intent on relentless penetration and insemination for the sake of species propagation, sorry, the search for a soul-mate. Since these alien dudes are hot and handsome, we all sigh in rapture instead of alerting the Men in Black that there are violent Jabba the Hut wannabes out there wanting to violate our women.

So, we have Crystal this time around who will be deliriously orgasmic ever after. She swings both ways, right and left and then up and down, although destiny marks her as the soul-mate of Terrien. One thing I have to say about Crystal - this girl is so fast that she doesn't restrict herself to just Terrien in this story. Of course, once she accepts that she's been earmarked for Terrien, it's a more mundane happily ever after in the making, but in the meantime, it's fun seeing a woman for a change who struts around the block knowing that she's in charge of deciding who she wants to boink.

Other than that, I don't have much to say about this story. Apart from the first and last chapter, everything else about this story involves a perpetual tangle of perfectly formed naked limbs. These scenes are pretty decent. Were not for the eye-rolling emphasis on giant pee-pees, they would have been great for a trip or two into the next galaxy. But given how easy these women had been so far, I don't understand why these alien dudes need to even bother with the whole set-up. They should have just posted an ad on Craiglist.
