What would you do if you could stop time when you orgasm? Rob banks, yeah? The writing is witty, the art is sexy, and the logical integrity supporting a plot where several people can orgasm at the exact same moment and find eachother to battle in a time-frozen cumworld is intractable but nobody cares (except maybe the author who will diverge into metafiction to discuss how difficult all this is for him.) So yeah. Read it for the sex.
