I thought the second one was even better - do let us know what you thought
if/when you get hold of it... (Though we might have opposite tastes on the
sex thing. I really like writing about sex. That has nothing to do with
the second *Pants* book, though, which I seem to remember has less sex
than the first.)

Love, Ika (now mildly worried about having recommended *Tipping the
Velvet*, which I think has a fair bit of sex in, but it's a while since
I've read it and I don't really remember - the title itself is a[n
invented] Victorian euphemism for cunnilingus, though, which suggests it's
probably closer to my preferred end of the sexual-content spectrum than
Jacob's. Lots of other good stuff in it as well, though.)

"The White Cobra will take great pleasure in the black velvet mole."
- *Avon: A Terrible Aspect*.
