I cant really say all that much about this, but it wasnt all that interesting. The reason im giving this a 7 instead of a 5 is because i like that last one. I thought it was funny and i liked the reactions from the uke. but other than that, all the other stories were just, okay. Not good, not great, just okay.

Do I recommend: No

Smutty Sex

If you're just in the mood and you want to read some yaoi to feed your appetite, then it's a great manga.
If not, then... No. All the story before the sex usually lasts about 3/4 pages, then you get sex, so no plot at all.
The characters are meh, the drawing is alright(though I dislike the lips) and the sex scenes are hot.
I guess I gave it a 4 because I laughed quite a bit at the first and final chapter(the S&M ones), otherwise, it would have been a 2.

It's a collection of 8 short stories. Two of them are related shorts, and are clearly BDSM themed. If you like that theme, certainly check this out. Overall, a fairly sexually explicit yaoi, not the most explicit I've seen, but pretty good. Ukes are "girly", semes are very sexy, "cool type".

9.5/10 (so high just for those 2 BDSM stories...)

how come all of the uke's this author writes about are so obsessed with sex they'd sleep with anyone breathing? if you want to read smut, read this.

what can I say? it is true that stories are not the best sample of writing around and sex scenes are kind of off but still the art is so beautiful and sweet that I couldn't stop loving them! >_< I'll give it 9 for super sexy semes and kawaii ukes! bigrazz

Maybe it's the translation...

This is all based on reading the English translation of this book. Basically...the stories are all short and unsatisfying. There's lots of sex, but most of it is far from innovative, and what could be interesting ends up truncated. The art style is also that kind where the uke has super-dewy, feminized eyes, which doesn't appeal to me. Still, I can't help but wonder if the stories suffered from translation and cultural differences. Otherwise, I can't explain why anyone would put such an awful book into print. (Sorry, Mangaka! I hope you are still working and try again!)
