“The Sushi Girl” by Anika Gupta in Smooth: Erotic Stories for Women

Smooth: Erotic Stories for Women is all about women’s nude bodies and what these characters do with them. One of them, in “The Sushi Girl” by Anika Gupta, lies naked with raw fish on top her. Here’s an excerpt:

Idly, he picked up the chopsticks, turning them around in his hand as if he’d never seen them before. With the same lethargy, he reached out and dragged one rounded end along my right rib, circling my breast. I breathed in deeply as the leaf over my right nipple shivered. The sashimi listed to the side. He tapped at it but didn’t pick it up. I looked at his face, but his gaze was fixed on his hands.

Again, he traced the curving slope, and finally the leaf slid, a slow cool slide down into the shadow between my breasts. He got up and leaned over me. His figure was vast, and so was his shadow. He tapped the tine against the ridge of my exposed nipple, almost by accident. I looked at him sharply but his eyes were on the sushi, cradled against my body.

I waited for him to retrieve it. He squeezed the edge of the leaf between the chopsticks, and I felt the leaf slide coolly, leaving a dry trail down the muscular plane between my ribs, the soft rise of the fat between. I pulled in my stomach and the soft lump passed over my navel. I bit my lip when it reached the juncture of my legs, coming to rest at last in the place where, in more ancient times, a fig leaf would have belonged. It sat, heavy, right over my clitoris. When he tapped the sashimi again with his chopsticks, the pressure went through the soft rice and through my skin. I squeezed my legs together so tightly that the muscles in my thighs were shaking.

I tried not to say anything. He tapped the sushi again. This time, almost infinitesimally, I let my thighs relax. The cool roll tumbled down between my thighs, brushing against the soft lips of my lower body, and it landed on the table right between.
