High Couch of Silistra - Janet Morris

Space hooker Gor lite, obliquely.

When told from the woman's point of view. A far future society has a planet where the women have trouble conceiving - and so become courtesans.

Now with this set up, there is almost no sex at all, except off page. Less so than Gor, even, which is distinctly odd when you go to the descriptive trouble of the rest of the baroque setting, here.

Woman as a result of a mating between two superior types whose coupling produced an off-screen 11 out of 10 on the shag-o-meter on Titan.

Mild bondage throughout, with the occasional scene like the one from one of the mummy movies with two beautiful women knife fighting in mesh body suits. The scant outfits are given plenty of wordage.

Baroque and censored I suppose, with the science fantasy weirdness that is her father and cohorts discovered at the end.

Points for producing logical reasons for sexy waist chains to be worn, though.

2.5 out of 5
