There are many descriptions of sexual encounters, but they are not written in an erotic style. The reader is not, I don’t think, drawn in to feel the excitement of the sexual behavior itself, and you can’t really identify with SFH. She’s a very unusual person! She’s someone who loved intense athletic competition and then felt completely dissatisfied living a normal life — in Madison, Wisconsin of all places — with a handsome, loving husband and a nice daughter. She repurposed her strongly physical, competitive spirit in the game of prostitution, in the place that — like the Olympics for an athlete — was the center of the world — Las Vegas.
