Victorian nerds in love get freaky with sex toys. This story appears to be a Victorian but the time period is not made clear. Its central hook focuses on "hysteria" and other mysterious female maladies being treated with vibrators by medical professionals in that time period.
The heroine is presented as a repressed, slightly neurotic woman who is resigned to a life of work and scholarship. She's got a tendré for the hero who is headmaster at the school where she works.
The first sex happens late for an erotic short story. The conversation that leads to the sex is very improper and with little of the subtext or subtlety one might expect for the times, especially for a very proper teacher and a headmaster. Once the sex happens things heat up a lot and the heroine immediately drops her sexual repression and shyness completely as if it had never been there. They conduct sexual experiments in the name of higher learning.
They use some sexual terms that might seem like anachronisms but they fit since these are two scholarly people who would have read and known those terms. Once the hero breaks through the heroine's shell of sexual denial, she's eager for anything he wants. He knows exactly what she wants and gives it to her. They do not have any sexual or emotional conflicts past this point.
This is a light, cute and sweet story with just the right touch of spice, even if it does come rather late in the story.
