A Classic Class Act

There is no way I will tell you that this is amazing writing, but I have always loved Penthouse letters because they are short and dirty. Sometimes I just want something that gets straight to the sex. The theme of this is only loosely adhered to, so if you are set on the theme, only expect to get it about half of the stories.

About author

Penthouse is known for their collections of stories that are sent into them. They are listed as true stories, but I have always doubted some of the author's accounts as completely true. Penthouse doesn't offer amazing writers. On occasion, a gem sneaks in. There is the promise to that there is always something different.

I personally like Penthouse letters because they always seem smutty. They are very raphic. It is actually rare to have a story sneak in that isn't smutty. That being said, Penthouse letters won't be for everyone.

Content / Style / Audience

This collection is specifically focused around college. Every store has something to do with college. Sometimes it felt a little bit of a stretch on the part of those that compiled this collection because some stories simply list that the characters were college aged. Others are all about naughty activities by college students and professors at college.

There is a little bit of everything in this collection. There is heterosexual, bisexual, and homosexual sex of all kinds. There is vanilla sex to light BDSM. There is exhibitionism and voyuerism. The beauty of Penthouse letters is that you can skip what you don't like and still have plenty of stories left.

That being said, homosexual encounters of both genders are much more lacking. If that is what you are looking for, you may want to buy a different book.

Design

There doesn't seem to be any pattern in how they put this together. All the stories are just jumbled together without any kind of sections. I kind of get frustrated by this. I think it would have been a lot better if this had been broken into some kind of sections, so I could jump to what kind of stories that I like.

The book itself is a basic paperback. The binding is nice and tight, but there is nothing special about it. The cover on the other hand stands out because it is so indiscreet. The cover has the sillouhette of a sexy woman and big font that says "letters to Penthouse"
Follow-up commentary
This is ok, but I only come back to it to read a handful of stories. There is so much variety in this that it means that there are going to be things that are a turn off. There are a few stories that really get my imagination going, but they are loosing their sparkle, so I will probably be passing this off to a friend in the near future.
