leave a comment »

Two curious people go into a virtual world to find partners for the BDSM sex that’s forbidden on their repressive planet. But then a race of aliens arrive to conquer their planet, and not only do these aliens practice kinky sex, but it’s the foundation for their entire social system. So our two outlaw heroes are the best-equipped people on the planet to deal with the alien menace. Come for the sex, but stay for the awesome tale of alien invasion. Grab yourself a copy and come join us!
