Go on, you know you've been tempted ... a collection of compelling, honest and intriguing anonymous confessions of infidelity and adultery, exploring all sides of the equation and from a variety of perspectives.
'It's one of the oldest stories in the world. It's in Shakepeare, the Bible, literature of every age and nation; it's in the gossip mags and the agony pages. Boy meets girl, but sometimes, a little while later, boy meets another girl. Or girl marries boy but finds herself drawn to someone else. Does she stay or does she go - resist or give in?'
Pretty much anyone who's been in a relationship has been tempted to stray at some time or another. Or perhaps found themselves the ones being strayed from. Naked is the ultimate confessional: a collection of anonymous confessions of infidelity and adultery, exploring all sides of the equation and from a variety of perspectives: male/female; gay/straight; the cheating, wronged and third parties; friends or children embroiled in the situation; even those who got no further than temptation.
Call it what you like, aspirational erotica, pure voyeurism, living vicariously, cheap thrills or projecting, there is no doubt that this topic has been hot since Helen took off on Menelaus and launched 1,000 ships and a world of pain. It's a universal topic that is now universally discussed. affairs; even by those who got no further than temptation.
Searing confessions from the unrepentant, the guilt-stricken, the bewildered, the forgiven, the abandoned and the damned, Naked is a breathtaking, enthralling and painfully honest glimpse into the heart at its most vulnerable, by writers both published and unknown, all anonymous.
