I have a couple of items in my jewelry box that make me feel lucky. There's something about pieces that close to your skin— your hands, your breasts, the tender part of your neck— that are weighted with erotic sentiment.
I always wanted to do that "Venus on a Half Shell "thing where I would walk out of the shorebreak in nothing but a lei of gems and golden strands.
My fantasies were further stoked when I heard Salome Wilde's story, "Granny Pearls." It's in my new audiobook, Best American Erotica 06.
She captivated me with her tale of a prissy little necklace who gets all mussed up and dragged through the gutter. Oh goodie!
