The Old Soldier recently received an erotic submission in which a woman tries to make a man cum by fellatio. She had to accomplish this sex act within two minutes. She failed to meet the deadline.
That was the submission.
When I emailed the writer and asked her why there was a deadline, she emailed me back that it was just to heighten the experience for the man and the woman.
My friends, a sex act is simply a sex act. It is not a short story. What is a short story?
A short story is a “significant” event with closure.
A woman trying to make a man cum by fellatio within two minutes is not a significant event. I explained all of this to the writer and encouraged her to try again.
The Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette is an online magazine of serious writing and brazen sexuality.
