Nobilis Reed, $0.99
Sci-fi Erotica, 2011
In the distant future, a virus causes the bulk of the human population to become female. The very few males that remain are now kept in special bunkers to protect them from the virus, their sperm extracted regularly t to ensure the continuation of the human population. What does this mean for the plot of Incursion at Gene Bunker Four? Nothing, as the whole thing is about insectoid aliens coming to rape our female guards before these ladies end up in the rape-y clutches of a kraken alien (yes, really) and… oh ya, that’s pretty much all of it, as this thing is actually a short little read. For a $0.99 read, its length makes it a pretty pricey option considering that there are far longer reads available for the same price, but to be fair, this is tentacle (and a few other tentacle-y things) erotica so it’s quite the niche market kind of story.
I actually quite like this, don’t judge me. The protagonists are more memorable than I initially expected, although the length of the story means that they are never going to be well drawn in any way, and the writing has its fair share of humor. I find the erotic elements to be the least interesting aspect of this story, believe it or not. It could be because I’m not into that tentacle thing, to be honest, but it can also be the lack of variation in these scenes. They all have the same pattern of those… things… injecting horny stuff into the women to make them beg for more tentacle-y stuff. Having these scenes back to back only emphasize how similar they are. Surely. the author could have been more imaginative!
Oh, and in case some people would like to know, this one has solely girl on girl and whatever-those-things-are on girl interactions. No male-female stuff, and the latter scenes are naturally non-consensual.
Anyway, this is what it is, and like most short erotica tales, it ends just when things seem to be getting interesting. For a genre all about prolonged titillation, it’s surprising how so many of the authors dabbling in it are so prone to leaving the reader high and dry.
