One of my favorite words to wrap my mouth around, to almost suck greedily on. lips come together, almost biting as they slowly let out the beginning of the word, followed with the "shh" of two lovers tangled in sheets and arms and legs in someone else's house. flesh is a word that is pure sex, a word that makes you feel naked and exposed and hungry for the touch of skin on skin, flesh on flesh on flesh.
