Touched by an Idol | Jenn Rents the Smut Vault

If you’ve ever dove into the depths of Archive Of Our Own looking for some sweet steamy fanfic, you’ve likely come across the “gender-bender” tag. An amateur pervert might turn their nose up at the prospect of Harry Potter casting a transfiguration spell to turn his penis into a pussy, but seasoned delinquents like myself have gleefully perused this tag. (Take that, JK Rowling!) What can I say – smut that dares to the sci-fi twist of swapping from cock to coochie just HITS DIFFERENT, you know?

And now, Smut Vault readers, I am proud to regale you with some gender-bender erotica – Sorcha Rowan’s Touched By An Idol. If you’ve never dared to read this genre, let this be the doorway to introduce you to it. It’s a hot, steamy, and surprisingly touching tale of a man getting in touch with his bi side after he accidentally digs up (and cums on) a fertility idol.

There are a LOT of angles that this story touches on. We start with David (while he still has his penis) finding himself wondering how his girlfriend Sherry feels when he’s having sex with her. He idly wonders what sensations she feels and if he would enjoy feeling it in the same way. First of all, we love a guy who puts that much thought into pleasuring his lover. Part of what makes erotica so fun is that you can see into characters’ minds in a way that pornos can’t, and hearing David think about how much he enjoys pleasuring others and being pleasured is decadent.

This also dives into the realm of bisexual fantasies. Before David gets his new body, he’s already found himself dreaming about getting fucked by a guy. The body swap gives him the perfect opportunity to test this out – David and Sherry end up setting up a threesome date with their bisexual friend Craig, which adds a whole new layer of kink to the story. And of course, since Sherry has sex with her transformed husband, she explores a new side of her sexuality, too. Fun all around!

The way Sherry responds to David’s change is quite sweet, too. She point-blank tells him that she would love him no matter what form he takes. Luckily for her, she thoroughly enjoys him either way – turns out, she’s fantasized about fucking David in the same ways David fantasized about GETTING fucked. Truly a match made in heaven. We love when a couple is that comfortable and open with each other. All porn is always better when the parties are consenting and having a good time with each other, am I right???

The wildest aspect here is the fact that David changes members MID-COITUS. I personally have never read a gender-bender where the characters’ body switched in the middle of sex. Having a character literally re-grow a prostate while getting ass-fucked is something you probably didn’t think you’d find hot – at least, not until you’ve read Touched By An Idol. A concept like that could easily dip into that valley between realism and fantasy where it loses its sexiness and becomes super off-putting, but the way Rowan’s written it WORKS.

Verdict: If you’re looking for an erotica with a unique sci-fi touch, this is where it’s at. It’s got threesome fantasies, cuckolding, butt stuff, nipple play – you know, all the staples. Plus, David and Sherry are IN LOVE! I love when the characters relentlessly fucking each other are in love!! If you’re new to the gender-bender genre, take the plunge with this one and discover the joys of a penis growing mid-screw. And, if you’ve already read your fair share of gender-bender stuff, this one will definitely offer you some new things you haven’t read before.
