"Galuchat Swingers" features two glowing goldfish of red and orange swimming behind a sheet of green wallpaper with purple and pink flowers. Their faces are wide-eyed and hypnotized at the sight of each other's naked bodies devoid of fat, smooth with shiny flexing scales. Their gills breath faster with arousal.
With the unstoppable approach of nature's horniest beasts, their radiating body heat is burning adrenaline at the thought of that furious fornication by the might of Neptune inevitable. The sexual tension is so strong it is oppressive, yet marriages and consequences be damned, they must have each other. [Pete Bradt]
