Slaves of the Empire: - Aaron Travis read during my Punk Rock Flophouse Years

I Remember: extremely brutal erotica set during the Roman Empire... "rapey" doesn't even begin to describe it... man, Aaron Travis can actually write! is that a pseudonym for an actual author? he is definitely no amateur... excellent period detail, interesting character development... sex scenes that are beyond savage... Marcy & I read this one out loud to each other in fey & lisping Gay Voice, which made all the extreme brutality & constant rape seem a lot less non-consensual... read this one again on my own a few years later, to see if it pushed a few buttons, so to speak... mixed results.
