This Valentine’s Day, stay in, light some candles and deliver an impassioned reading of the interactive story Publisher’s Weekly is calling “a fun way to enjoy a smorgasbord of sex scenes.”

The story in question is called Night Shift, and it’s a choose-your-own-erotic-fantasy written by none other than Joanna Angel, an award-winning adult film star and director whose name you may vaguely recognize (but will adamantly pretend not to). It came out last week—just in time for you to surreptitiously purchase it at work and hide it under your bed until February 14th.

The book, which is “mostly SFW,” revolves around a recent college grad named Taryn, who takes a graveyard shift at a seedy sex shop in Pasco County, Florida (there are presumably few un-seedy sex shops in Pasco County, Florida). According to the release, your objective is as follows: In a sketchy and sexy world filled with tissues, gallons of lube, sex toys, tiger print, and swinger parties, help Taryn choose her way as she learns what happens in this small, unexpectedly kinky town. From butt plugs to cross-dressing truckers to being held-up at gunpoint over dildos, experience this fun and sexy journey along with Taryn, as she goes from shy and sweet to skilled and empowered—but how she gets there is up to you!

While getting held-up at gunpoint over dildos seems a little far-fetched, even for a choose-your-own-erotic fantasy set in Florida, the book has garnered solid reviews—and given Taryn’s inexperience, it can provide so-inclined readers with an informal, empowering education on kinky sex.

Hey, it’s either this or Fifty Shades Freed...

Sam Eichner likes literature, reality television and his twin cats equally. He has consistently been told he needs a shave since he started growing facial hair.
