Story of the Day - Teak and Polished Brass

Our next 'Story of the Day' is Teak and Polished Brass by John Benson which has been recommended by LSF member, Tiptopper

"Unlike most of John Benson's stories, Teak and Polished Brass contains no fantasy, science fiction or magic. On re-reading it I realized that the situation was in many ways similar to 'Fifty Shades Of Grey' with an older authoritative man and a younger women who had unexplored desires. What makes it different from 'Fifty Shades of Grey' in my opinion, is that it is well written.

Benson is very good at getting into the psyche of his characters. This story is a fairly short and enjoyable read. It is too bad that Benson didn't write Fifty Shades of Grey. If he had it would have been a much better novel.

Part of Jane’s tutoring job is to apply the cane. Her student seems to need it. But what about the teacher?
