Sexual Exploration (2004) is a couples erotica mystery. Wendy Rice is a wannabe writer completely absorbed in her latest book effort, so much so that she fantasizes about her characters while being with her boyfriend. She calls out her male character’s name at an important juncture, and her boyfriend moves out. Faced with having to pay both halves of the rent, she applies for a job as research assistant to a best selling author. The job starts off difficult, and gets harder. He is gruff, opinionated, and seems to have no respect at all for her writing. He makes a valid point, however. If she wants to write about passion, she should experience some.
