Summary:

Paula is a fun, hyperactive, hardworking self-employed woman in her thirties. In her eagerness to experience life, she discovers a completely new world: the realm of erotic chat rooms. And what starts off as a diverting meandering through various chat rooms ends up becoming something much deeper when she meets AMOSAPIENS, a user she frequently talks to about her thoughts on sex and who corresponds with constant innuendos on forming a relationship of domination between them. Even though Paula is initially reluctant, little by little she begins to learn the rules of a world that isn't as crazy as she thought and starts to question her own limits. Communication and lack of it, crudeness and sense of humor, virtuality and reality, solitude and company, button and buttonhole, sadist and masochist, Lord and slave, Paula and Sapiens. Through a daring, intimate, tender, lively, direct, contemporary, ironic, and truly funny narrative, Rosa Penasco delves into the principles and rules that inspire the complicated and hidden world of S&M.

"Paula es trabajadora, treintanera, hiperactiva, freelance, divertida y avida de experimentar la vida. Su curiosidad la lleva a un mundo totalmente inédito para ella: los chats eróticos. Lo que en principio comienza como un merodeo divertido por distintas salas acaba convirtiéndose en algo más en el momento en que conoce a AMOSAPIENS, un usuario con el que habla habitualmente acerca de su forma de entender el sexo y del que recibe continuas insinuaciones sobre la posibilidad de fantasear con una relación de dominación entre ambos. Aunque Paula es reticente, poco a poco comenzará a conocer las reglas de un mundo que acaba por no ser tan descabellado como le parecía y a cuestionarse sus propios límites." --P. [4] of cover.
