Tully handsome, attentive, mysterious is unlike any servant OMara has met in the Pleasures. And his extraordinary service is about to allow her to experience a level of intimacy she has only ever imagined .
Oh Good Lord that was amazing. Truly that was a beautiful, mind numbing work of art. I was curious, aroused and Im certain you broke my heart a bit. Sincerely one of the best bits of writing Ive read in some time. Im sitting here slightly shaken and wondering what is next. That was ..yeah amazing. In a bit when I can breathe right again, Ill give you a better review but for now I need a minute.

A few seconds pass while I listen to the low buzz of the tungsten lights and the higher pitched hum of what I assume is the machinery.
So your service, its some kind of machine, right?
More or less. Are you ready to try it? He lays a hand on top of mine. You dont need to be scared.
Im not scared, I lie. Should I undress?
Its not necessary. You can if you want to.
I think about that for a moment. The setting is so strange and unsexy. I cant imagine how anyone would want to undress. There isnt even a bed. Are we going to have sex on the floor? And when will this machine appear?
You have questions? Tully says.
I have the feeling youll say I have to experience it to fully understand.
He smiles, leaning forward and reaching behind my chair. I can explain it. But its true that your experience will be better if I dont. Knowing too much interferes with the effect. When he sits back, he has several wires in his hand, each terminating in a small electrode. As he speaks in a low soothing voice, he attaches the electrodes one to each temple, one in the center of my forehead, two somewhere in my hair, and one below each ear. I want you to know that the safe word will work, if you need it. Do you remember it? I nod as he attaches a final electrode on the back of my neck, just below my hairline.
Am I having electroshock therapy? Im joking. I hope Im joking.
Tully smiles as he clips a heart rate monitor onto my index finger. You wont feel anything.
I wont feel anything? Doesnt that defeat the whole point of visiting the Pleasures?
He laughs then, rises from his stool and turns toward the workbench. Oh, youll feel something. Just not at the point of the electrodes. He sits on another stool, in front of a chipped cathode screen, which comes to glowing green life as he types onto a clacky keyboard. Sit back and relax. If you lean forward like that, youre in danger of falling out of the chair. He spins on his stool, facing me again. He has a small handheld terminal in his hands, a thick coil of wire connecting it to the equipment on the workbench. Ready?
I lean back into the chair, resting my head on the soft cushion. Ready.
He turns a knob on the handset. Theres a barely perceptible increase in the background hum as Tully stands. I watch him take one graceful step toward me, two, three and then the world goes black.
