The hero of Christine d'Abo's Long Shots series, Josh Scott, is certainly a busy man. When he's not running his sex club, Mavericks, he's playing matchmaker to the club's patrons. In the series' fourth installment, Calling the Shots, Josh's friend Beth is hot for bartender Oliver, who is recovering from a recent divorce. Josh has no problem bringing the two together with a hot ménage, but could it mean love for Josh? If you're a fan of the series, you've already taken a few trips to Mavericks, but for newcomers we've asked Josh to give a tour of his club so they know what to expect before diving into this author's latest:
Welcome to Mavericks, where the sex is hot and anything goes. I see you’re new. Well, don’t be shy. We love all types here at Mavericks, and if you’re interested we can talk later about our membership packages.
My name is Josh Scott, owner and manager of the club. How about I take you on a tour so you can see some of what we have to offer?
You can hang up your jacket here before I take you into the main area. Don’t worry about what you’re wearing. Sure, most of our members like to throw on a bit of leather, some PVC, or wear nothing at all, but that’s not a requirement. You look fabulous as you are.
What’s that? Oh, it’s my pride and joy. The St. Andrew’s Cross gets a lot of attention from our members. There’s always someone tied up here, and receiving their punishment. I put it on a round stage so people can enjoy the view. Not everyone wants to be up there, but many like to watch.
Over here we have the bar. My head bartender Oliver isn’t in at the moment. I think he’s out getting some supplies for tonight. Is he hot? Yes sweetheart, of course he is. If you’re looking for a hot bartender to fulfill some fantasies for you, Oliver might not be the right one though. I believe he’s recently come off the market, if you know what I mean.
Follow me and we’ll go on up to the private rooms. We cater to all tastes here at Mavericks. This room at the top of the stairs has a one way mirror. People inside can’t see out, but we can watch everything they’re doing. This room is quite popular with new members. They get to do something daring without the pressure of having to look the voyeurs in the eye.
Now down the hall there are several other rooms. This first one is a favorite of mine. See the suspension bar hanging from the ceiling? A submissive can be strung up there and their Dom can have a lot of fun moving them this way and that. Do I like to be tied up? No, that’s not my thing. But I do enjoy helping others learn about what it means to let go.
In each room we have a number of supplies for members to use. They are all cleaned and replaced on a regular basis. Hygiene and the safety of my members is of the utmost importance to me. Condoms are a must. No exceptions. Likewise, if you have any questions about the quality or condition of any of the equipment, please let me know and I’ll address it.
What else do we have? Spanking benches, dildos, e-stim equipment—though I require confirmation that you know what you’re doing if you’re going to use that. Clamps, straps, paddles, lube, leather, PVC…anything you could ever want or need is available for your enjoyment.
Think you might be interested in joining us? Excellent! My office is just down the hall. Why don’t you come with me and we can discuss the details of your membership.
And don’t forget, anything goes here at Mavericks.
