A Tale of Moral Corruption
How does an ordinary man plummet into a world of male escorts, kinky sex, and death matches?
In this speculative tale, 28 year-old Mason can’t wait to be a loving father and supportive husband. He’s especially looking forward to wearing the new artificial womb that so many men have strapped on their bellies. First, however, he must be chosen from the Approved Partner Registry, a website that profiles men and their qualifications. It’s used by businesswomen who don’t have the time or inclination to date.
In the meantime, he works hard at his clerical job with a large corporation, and volunteers at the company’s co-op daycare. He keeps his body in good physical condition. He even took a remedial course with a sex surrogate when the registry listed him as a premature ejaculator. His diligence will pay off when he is selected as a mate.
But when he is dropped from the Approved Partner Registry, his life begins to unravel and it doesn’t look like anything can stop his fall from grace.
