A mercifully short read. I wanted to like these stories, I think the author is aware of the dynamic between what we do to our bodies and what's happening inside our minds, but unfortunately this dynamic was not explored with any kind of depth or insight. It was hinted at often enough, but the expository style of the writing focused on the the tactile sensations of modification and arousal. Overall, the explorations of cutting (piercing, tattooing, branding, etc only get cursory mentions in a couple of the stories) didn't go deep enough to be interesting, let alone arousing.
