Skin to skin contact is illegal. Sex? A felony. Insulated suits and gloves keep people from even the most platonic touches. Citizens line up in droves at simhouses for their rationed, prescribed orgasms in virtual reality machines.
Keith Borden has worked in a simhouse for years, and he’s never been tempted to break the strict no-contact laws… until Aiden Maxwell comes along. The attractive and dangerously flirtatious patient invites him into the seedy underground where people engage in real, wireless sex. Though Keith stands to lose his career and his freedom, he’s curious and Aiden is irresistible.
From the moment he sets foot in the wireless lounge, Keith is in a world of flesh and fantasy. He’s hooked. On the sex, on the atmosphere, and most of all, on Aiden. Years of keeping everyone in his world at arm’s length have left Keith craving a human touch, and Aiden offers all the contact—scorching sex, gentle affection, and everything in between—Keith can handle.
That is, until an unexpected act of betrayal throws Keith’s world into chaos, and he finds himself more alone than he ever imagined possible…
This 55,000-word novel was previously published, and has been extensively revised and rewritten from its first edition.

* I received the book in exchange for an honest review*
As I said in the introduction, this book is different from the books I’ve read. Mostly because for some reason, every touch is forbidden. Sex? Forget it! Wireless sex means just diseases and disasters in general so the government has made it illegal. Imagine not touching your mother’s hand. Or your kids’. Or hug them?
Keith works as a simtech, in a place where government sends people to achieve orgasms as it prevents people to become violent or anything. And they even get suppressors, to help them with abstinence.
When a patient, Aiden, invites him to the wireless lounge, Keith is conflicted. If he were caught, he would lose his job, and go to jail. The government has paired him with a perfect match for him but …
After Keith experiences what it means to touch another person, have sex with another person, the impersonal society is not enough. He craves more, and he is not the only one. But when he is betrayed, he is forced to choose between two equally unattractive choices.
I admit, the only reason I gave this book four stars instead of five is that I wanted them to completely overthrow everything and make touching legal again. I knew that was not going to happen but I still wanted it 🙂
About The Author
L.A. Witt is an abnormal M/M romance writer who has finally been released from the purgatorial corn maze of Omaha, Nebraska, and now spends her time on the southwestern coast of Spain. In between wondering how she didn’t lose her mind in Omaha, she explores the country with her husband, several clairvoyant hamsters, and an ever-growing herd of rabid plot bunnies. She also has substantially more time on her hands these days, as she has recruited a small army of mercenaries to search South America for her nemesis, romance author Lauren Gallagher, but don’t tell Lauren. And definitely don’t tell Lori A. Witt or Ann Gallagher. Neither of those twits can keep their mouths shut…
