Desire — acute, liquid and smoldering, combusts deep in my belly..." - Anastasia Steele in a fit of passion or a colitis attack.
"Christian squirts baby oil into his hand and then rubs my behind with careful tenderness — from makeup remover to soothing balm for a spanked ass, who would have thought it such a versatile liquid..." - Anastasia Steele
Good lord. Anaïs Nin is rolling in her grave.
