Swim Coach (chapter 8)

Amy and Matt consumate their relationship.

I got up, grabbed my new letterman’s jacket from the arm chair in the living room and crossed over to the bathroom. Inside the bathroom I took a moment to straighten my hair and then to reapply my lipstick which had mostly been kissed off on Matt’s lips. I felt so wonderful, feminine and graceful; I felt wanted. I looked into the mirror and unzipped the skirt, letting it fall to the floor...Read On

Swim Coach (chapter 3)

Amy's feelings for Matt grow stronger.

My date with Richard, quite predictably, turned out to be a nightmare. We had started off at the local A&W which went well despite long periods of awkward silences. He then took me to the movies, choosing a horror film in an attempt to get me to cling to him. It actually worked until he started ‘clinging’ back and I wigged out and left the theatre after being groped one too many times. There...Read On

Swim Coach (chapter 4)

Amy and Matt share their first kiss.

At practice the next Tuesday Sally told us that the next meet was the biggest one before the state championships and that we would be swimming against the two best teams in the northern half of the state. Our performances at the meet would be used as qualifying times for the state meet and a poor performance could mean a poor seed or even the possibility of not qualifying for a race....Read On

Swim Coach (chapter 5)

Amy swims in a meet.

I couldn’t wait for practice the next day, though when I got there I learned that Matt was out sick. I was disappointed by his absence and recall that some of those butterflies of doubt seemed to reinvade my belly. My practice was lackluster and I think I must have been pretty moody because Beth called me on it after practice. I told her that nothing was wrong but I could tell she didn’t...Read On

Swim Coach (chapter 6-7)

Amy and Matt get very close.

So the next few weeks went by quickly. I swam very well at the next three meets, winning most of my races and consistently swimming at times that were the best in the state. It was all a bit strange - I’d never been the focus of attention in anything I’d done but now, at least as far as the swim team went, I was the queen bee. Youngsters on the team would ask me for advice and help. The...Read On

Swim Coach (chapter 12)

Amy goes sailing with Matt and his friends Milo and Jen.

I'm surprised by what flows out as I write the story. Yes, it started out being a very autobiographical account, however has now crossed in to a strictly fictional space. I'm sure a few years of analysis will help me sort it all out! You've almost got to read the first parts of this story to understand what's going on, but for those with short attentions, I'd suggest starting at chapter...Read On

Swim Coach (Chap 1)

First chapter in my autobiographical love story. No sex.

I think back to my days on my swim team with a great deal of fondness. It was a magical time in my life, with the triumphs and tragedies of my teen years seeming to be captured by what was happening on the swim team. My best friends were on the team and we became young women and men during those years and experienced all the pains and all the joys of that time together. It is often only...Read On

Swim Coach (Chap 2)

I realize that I've really got it bad for my coach. No sex

I told my mom about my presents and my thoughts about getting a more adult haircut. With a wistful look on her face (that I didn’t understand then, but do now) she suggested that we make an appointment at her favorite day spa in downtown Chicago and spend Saturday there together - a girl’s day out as it were. I think I paused for just a second too long when considering her offer; before I...Read On

Swim Coach (Chapter 9)

My relationship with Matt takes a bit of a turn.

I honestly don’t remember much more about that wonderful day. I do remember being really sore for a few days and I do remember phoning Beth to talk about what had happened. She was as curious about my first experience as I had been about hers. She was, and is to this day, such an amazing friend. She never questioned my judgment about being with Matt and only offered support to me during...Read On

Swim Coach (Chap 10)

A trip to the lingerie shop at the order of my lover.

I left Matt’s house that night feeling more emotions that I’d ever felt in my life. After the first time we’d made love I left Matt feeling nothing but a simple euphoria. When I left that night I felt some of that elation, but also a confusing mix of worry, happiness, desire, anxiety, and self-doubt. I think I was beginning to worry that Matt’s desires and the things he was asking of me were...Read On

Swim Coach (Chap 11)

Matt takes me out for a night on the town.

I drove myself to Matt’s house that night wearing a ratty pair of sweats and an old Tee after telling my parents that I’d be spending the night at Beth’s again. I’m sure they wouldn’t have been too surprised to hear that I’d become a lesbian given the number of nights I’d spent at her house recently. I’d had to put my ‘evening wear’ and makeup into a duffle. My hair had grown out...Read On

Lightning and Thunder

A hot summer day poolside is delivered from being ordinary by a thunder storm and unforeseen affair.

“Fuck. This heat is unreal.” I think to myself. The sun has been relentless today, baking the dead calm air into miles high thunderheads. I can feel the air around me growing heavier with humidity. Electricity is building in the clouds west of the pool where I’m lifeguarding. Making eight dollars an hour, sitting in a lifeguard’s chair, yelling at punky kids and developing my future age...Read On

Blind Date

First person male perspective of a hot date.

I seem to have a thing for "strangers". Many of my stories involve first "very hot" encounters, one time encounters, spontaneous encounters, no attachments, nothing too serious... I knew him the moment our eyes met. I was more than pleased and sensed that we would connect in a most delightful way.  When we first spoke on the phone I was utterly surprised at the affect his voice had...Read On

Becky and David

Traveling salesman meets a waitress.

Author’s Note: This is by far my favorite collaborative story (my contributions are in focus largely on Becky - the italic bits). I really loved the way it developed and that it just didn’t end with mutual orgasms or falling asleep. There are days when things work, and there are days when things don't. David knew he'd have to come to terms with this, but the situation since he'd...Read On

Percussion

First person perspectives of an encounter at a dance concert.

Percussion There are these transcendent moments in my life, moments when my consciousness expands beyond the normal, day to day concerns regarding the next patient, what to eat for dinner, toe jam, the fucked-up state of our Union. Most of these moments have happened during times of intense physical exertion of some sort. I think my first happened when I was playing ball in high school -...Read On

A Good Idea (Chap 1)

A Vet finds himself back home and lost. Co-written with a friend a while ago.

It sounded like a good idea at the time. But now she wasn’t so sure. She met Nick online, on one of those dating sites, and they had met a few times and she was definitely attracted to him and the feeling appeared to be mutual. As she was new to dating once again, having taken about a year off, she wanted to move slowly, not interested in just jumping in the sack. First, she wasn’t on the...Read On
