Title: Try Anything Once
Pairing/Characters: Newton Geiszler/Hermann Gottlieb; appearances from Tendo and Alison
Rating: NC-17 [this is non-negotiably NSFW]
Notes: I ended up at a fandom party on Saturday where this crack-prompt was handed to me because we'd all ended up watching this video and WTFing over it. At first, I doubted my ability to work with it as a challenge, but the part of my brain that still wants to be writing PR fic nonstop said, look, no, there's something potentially hilarious here (and I'll admit up-front that my favorite sex scenes, both to read and to write, are the awkwardly realistic ones where there's plenty of good-natured laughter). Before you read the story, watch the video; I apologize up front for the several minutes of your life that you'll never get back, but it's necessary for context (and may just be one of the funniest sex-novelty tutorials you'll ever watch). Also, while this is being posted as/designed to be read as a stand-alone, for anybody who cares, it's very much set in Anthology 'verse.
"I had no idea grapefruit could function as a verb," [Newton] says in reverent, drunken awe.
"Oh, just you wait," says Tendo, taking the video off pause. "It gets better and better."
Newt, Tendo, YouTube, and a ton of beer lead to a surprise for Hermann.

[My friends, I so rarely write crack-that-isn't-precisely crack, but please be forewarned that's exactly what you're going to find here. The YouTube video is all kinds of WTF, and it is also unquestionably NSFW.]
