Here's another Alexis Rogers story I just got a ... a yen to reread, one day, and I can't even remember exactly what set me off. A pay phone? One of those dumb phone-sex ads? A glimpse of the Greyhound station sign? Never mind. Fifty Five Cents is the kind of story that really deserves the label "erotic character study" --with emphasis on "erotic."[1]


Why this must be read: Uhh, sex games;) Starsky and Hutch are on stakeout in a bus station and they have to pass the time, so they start a round of phone-sex. Except, Starsky keeps running out of dimes, so it's a stop and start procedure. And it only takes 55 cents for the world to be right. [2]


First S&H I ever read was Fifty-Five Cents by Alexis Rogers. Yeah, my eyes pretty much popped out. [3]
Not my first, but I remember reading Fifty-five Cents and thinking "Wow! That went from zero to sexy in no time!". [4]
