“Fingers & Tongues” is smart erotica with men and women as sexual collaborators. Paola Kathuria’s book contains seven short sex stories specifically written to be hot enough to get you off but with a focus on female pleasure. The vanilla stories cover male-female, group, female-female scenarios.
Originally, written for an online forum with 250,000 readers, the stories have been professionally edited and reworked for the book. The editing, design and printing of the book was funded by a Kickstarter campaign in May 2014.

Gillian Ashton on Goodreads:
The stories in this novel are an ideal size, straight to the nitty gritty which is what readers of this genre want. The mixture of tales is great, suitable for every taste and individual. I very much doubt that readers will not finish this book feeling titillated and stimulated. It’s definitely staying on my shelf to be read and reread!
Christina Harding Erotica:
What really struck me while reading the short stories in fingers & tongues was the vast variety between all of them. Paola skillfully transitions between writing heterosexual and homosexual encounters.
Frequently when I read a book of short stories they tend to feel formulaic; however, this was not the case with fingers & tongues. I would not have been surprised if this was an anthology of short stories written by a variety of authors. And so I am genuinely impressed with Paola's versatility as a writer. With this being said, I would suspect that there is something for everyone in this eclectic collection. If one story doesn't turn you on (literally) I'm sure you'll find another that would do the trick.
onherback.com on Reaching for the Moon:
Paola's erotica is well written and engaging, significantly better than some published erotica that I've read.
Paola told me that she wants her erotica to be more arousing for the reader, more pornographic. It certainly did the job it was assigned. 'Reaching for the Moon' doesn't mess around. A few sentences into the story the action begins and it doesn't slow down. There's no resolution, just a climax. A long, long climax that extends beyond the story once it's finished. The ending does something unique, it gives the reader the chance to finish the story for themselves and it stuck with me long after I finished reading.
Women's pleasure is highlighted in this story, something that is not prevalent in non-feminist porn.
Paola's erotica delivers what the author intended it to: a story to turn you on. Quality writing makes the story enjoyable to read and a brilliant imagination made ‘Reaching for the Moon' one of the hottest erotica short stories that I've read.
