Overview

Helen and Martine run unusual establishments: "sex shops," one in Los Angeles and one in New York, that never ask payment for their wares. They aren't in business to sell "novelties." They aren't there to make a profit. Their enterprise is more serious than that: an effort to buttress the erotic spars that hold Mankind above the level of the beasts.

Priestesses chronicles the adventures of two priestesses of erotic desire, commissioned from On High to spread erotic knowledge among those who need it. They labor in the shadows to avert both the chaos of untempered lust and the despair of desire too tightly shackled. Either could plunge human civilization into eternal darkness.

Meet the Author

Francis W. Porretto was born in 1952. Things went steadily downhill from there.

Fran is an engineer and fictioneer who lives on the east end of Long Island, New York. He's short, bald, homely, has bad acne and crooked teeth. His neighbors hold him personally responsible for the decline in local property values. His life is graced by one wife, two stepdaughters, two dogs, four cats, too many power tools to list, and an old ranch house furnished in Early Mesozoic style. His 13,000 volume (and still growing) personal library is considered a major threat to the stability of the North American tectonic plate.

Fran writes science fiction (Which Art In Hope, Freedom's Scion), contemporary spiritual fantasies (Chosen One, On Broken Wings, Shadow Of A Sword), one near-future family saga (The Sledgehammer Concerto), and "erotica for good people" (Priestesses). He also rants with appalling regularity about politics, culture, and faith at his blog "Liberty's Torch:" http://bastionofliberty.blogspot.com/

    Very talented author!

    I was pleasantly surprised by this little ebook! I found it for free on BN for my Nook, and with a current appetite for erotica, decided to give it a try. While I wouldn't consider the book to be "erotica" as I know it (lots of graphic sex, "one handed read", etc. etc), his novella is more about the psychological side of sex and love. Two priestesses are given the divine power to help boost married couples faltering sex lives, and their insights into sex and life (mirrored by Poretto's own beliefs, it appears, from his introduction) are bits of information that make the reader cock a brow and go, "huh." Poretto is a talented author with a knack for creating interesting and vivid characters, with an obvious understanding of inner human desires and the driving force behind them. At times shocking, but more often (for lack of a less fluffy term) heartwarming, I definitely recommend this ebook. I believe it's worth a heck of a lot more than being free!
