Kissing Power contains 16 short stories, which reach across genders, age and national borders to act as a counterpoint to the somewhat puritanical contemporary views of sex and erotica. In a series of wild and mischievous stories we go to a teenaged bedroom, to Greece, to a wedding anniversary party, to the theatre and to a boat. There's excitement and creativity when real people have real sex, which is certain to get the desire pumping and the kisses to heat up.
