The story of Delia, the Gorgeous Librarian.
This the Gorgeous Librarian, but her name is Delia, she suffers from severe memory loss. Her daytime job as a librarian can be done easily; she just looks up everything she needs to know, again and again. Her speciality at night is bondage. This gorgeous librarian likes to experiment with plastic elastics, the ones she gets from the mailman. Delia thinks it’s a more friendly way to tie people down; that is not the case of course. She knows that, but she forgets. It’s never a valuable lesson for Delia when one of her clients turns blue, but they keep coming back for more.
Powder Box Girls
The Gorgeous Librarian is part of the Powder Box Girls; a series of statuettes accompanied by their own short story created by Mimi Berlin. The Powder Box Girls are girls of pleasure with double jobs. Working during the day is very important to them, oddly enough without these jobs they couldn’t work the night.
