Seah Yoo is your average office worker. She’s also had a partner for many years, but none of this is enough for her. Every day is routine with mindless tasks that would bore anyone to tears. Seah, though, is more disturbed by this routine than anyone else. Why? Because she has a preference toward group sex. She desperately longs for a chance to be ravaged by multiple men simultaneously, though she would never say so out loud. As a result, she ends up breaking up with her long-term partner and going to a club in hopes of meeting the partners of her dreams.
As luck would have it, she is approached by Hangyul and Hangyum, twins who ask her outright: “Are you interested in group sex?” How they knew such a thing is beyond her, but she takes this opportunity to finally lead the stimulating life she’s always dreamt of. As it turns out, they have a third person to add to the mix, their uncle Doha, who likes to watch people have sex before he joins in himself. With this odd mish-mash of people, Seah wants to make this a night to remember, as it will surely be her once-in-a-lifetime opportunity… right?
The art is very nice. The men, in particular, are all stunning and super attractive. It’s also pretty consistent. The only downside is that it does look a bit stiff from time to time, and the jewelry is laughably out of place. I’m pretty sure they just got stock jewelry or 3D-modelled jewelry and pasted it in where needed, which isn’t uncommon in manhwa, but it’s done better in some than others. In this case, it’s pretty awkward and is clearly out of place. Thankfully, this doesn’t happen often, but it’s worth noting since it’s one of the few times the art isn’t as perfect as it usually is.
Unfortunately, for some, this isn’t going to be worth a read because it is about 98% smut, with 2% dedicated to the story, and even the parts committed to the story are mostly just info dumps about their pasts. I personally don’t mind superficial stories where smut is the main focus, but this is an odd case. It seems like it tries really hard to be deep with mentions of extremely dark pasts from the nephews and the uncle, but it’s mentioned in passing and as a way to excuse their preference for group sex. I don’t think it needed an excuse, as threesomes, foursomes, and poly preferences are perfectly valid without needing some dark past to validate them. It makes it seem like what they are doing is wrong, which isn’t true. I actually wish there was less story, and it was an all-out smutfest, as I think it would have been much more enjoyable without the jarring trauma and backstory dumps.
Now, while I enjoy smut as much as the next person, I admittedly hate dirty talk. Unfortunately, this is full of it, and it has done nothing to change my preference. There is a neverending stream of dirty talk with unnecessary descriptions of Seah’s genitals as “squeezing,” “sucking,” and “tightening.” I don’t mind those descriptors, but there is something about imagining people saying them out loud repeatedly that makes me feel awkward. I don’t want complete silence, which would probably be even more uncomfortable, but they talk way too much for my liking. It’s almost full-on conversations during sex, which is just too much for me. However, if you like dirty talk, there is plenty of it here for you.
I also wasn’t a massive fan of the pseudo-incest after Seah married Doha. Hangyul and Hangyum called her auntie during sex, which gave me the heebie-jeebies. However, eventually, they ended up having a child, which I love. I am a big fan of child-rearing, pregnancy, and the like in my romance content, and this doesn’t disappoint on that front. I love that they don’t care who the father is; they all raise her as their own. She also looks just like Seah, which helps keep up the mystery of the baby’s parentage. I wish we could have seen more of them raising her together, but the fact that we get any in this smutfest was a nice touch for me. I would love to read more poly titles with child-rearing in them.
This is fine. It’s super short with lots of sex, which for some people will be ideal. It’s not a very good story, though, so if you need that to enjoy a manhwa, then you won’t enjoy this one. There are much better smutty titles out there, but if you have nothing better to do and want something quick with plenty of sex, look no further. If nothing else, it’s going to be really nice to look at while you enjoy the neverending sex scenes.
