This is a VERY meng story! Though it is short, it is utterly sweet, fluffy, and a bit smutty at the end. I'm so excited that 自带春♂药的男人was picked up! The title is a bit clever in Chinese, as without the "♂" it is translated as The Man Who Brings Herbal Medicine, but if you take it away, it becomes An Aphrodisiac Man (literally, as Bringing Aphrodisiac Man).

The main character is a tsundere, proud uke and yes, the seme is definitely gentle and super, super tolerant as the summary above mentions,... more>> LOL!

Regardless, the main character, Ling Maoer (凌猫儿) is a Siamese cat spirit who poses a a model for his day job. One day, he meets a photographer, Mu Mu (穆牧), having a smell that is utterly irresistible. Later on, Ling Maoer finds out that Mu Mu lives closeby. Mu Mu's scent bothers him so much, that after the photoshoot, he turns into a cat to sneak over to find out the source of the smell. Mu Mu, unaware that the cat he finds is the very model he's been collaborating with, spoils the cat to bits.

I won't spoil too much, as there isn't that many chapters--but you can be assured the ending is happy and very, very smutty. There is a surprising twist that I didn't see coming though!


Mu Mu turns out to be a Silver vine plant spirit (Actinidia polygama) that is known to elicit euphoric response in cats.... This is why the ending is smutty...


Also, it's worth listening to the audio drama which is... amazing. You can find the link to it here: http://blreview. tumblr. com/post/172009474507/ <<less

That short story is a little masterpiece. Well written, well translated, with plenty of humour and sweetness. The relationship between proud kitty MaoEr and patient gentle MuMu is a delight to read. I loved MaoEr's personality, especially his shameless arrogance and narcissism lol... The ending might seemed rushed to some, but it did not bother me.

Ling Mao Er is a cat demon (purebred Thai-born Siamese) whose current identity is a 19 year old model, famous for being so androgynous that he can take both male and female roles. Mu Mu is a 32 year old well-known photographer who emits some kind of scent that makes him a human shaped catnip for cats. This short story follows the journey of their relationship, from a not-so-great meeting, to sneaky "pet" and oblivious "master", to getting together.

Pros: Surprisingly really good writing that avoids a lot of the common... more>> CN danmei pitfalls!

Mao Er is beautiful, but rather than everyone praising him, a lot of people actually ridicule him out of envy or disbelief. On the other hand, while Mu Mu isn't ugly, he's very plain looking. Mao Er, as an old cat demon, is very crafty but subtly animalistic, there's no "helpless animal shou" here. In general, Mao Er is 'excellent' but he's not a Mary Sue or a softboi, and he's very capable even without his gong.


Cons: Although it's meant to be short, c8 feels too fast, like the author summarized another 5-10 chapters worth of content. Also, the AN promised tempting r18 extras but I don't know how to find the extras... <<less

This one is a very cute and sweet short BL story. The ML is super gentle and sweet while the MC is tsundere. The ending is a little bit rush but it's still tolerable. Smut 7/10, story 7.5/10

This is a quick, fun read.

Loud shout out to the translator! Thank you.

This wild and funny story is about a model who meets a photographer who has a personal sent that attracts and drives the model crazy when he is near. There is a great reason for that. I love how the model finds himself addicted to the photographer's smell, like an aphrodisiac!

Loved the characters, especially the photographer.

A nice short-story involving a vain cat-boy bottom and an aphrodisiac-type casual top. Don't look too deep into it — idiot-syndrome is communicable — and just enjoy it. It's short, thus plot is practically nonexistent, but it's not bad.

It's really pity that its rating isn't higher because despite being short, it really is a very good story, better than other longer ones with higher ratings. I hope you can give it a try.~

PD: It's pity that the extras in the print version aren't available because they promised so much.

It was definitely a good read!!!

First 7 chapters felt laid-back (I was enjoying their interactions, it was so meng) then in the 8 chapter there are earth shattering changes.... LOL

MC is so tsun but still since he was taking all the initiatives I didn't mind, if anything changes in the ML came like a storm maybe. it was coz of the time skips inbetween but since it's a HE, I forgive them all!! hahahaha

Lots of fluff and s*x.... hurhur

A Good one.... recommending to all.

Happy Reading.

It's not that good. The story seemed rushed. It would be better if the author added some arcs.
However, I really like Mo Er and Mu Mu's interaction. Especially when Mo Er was in his cat form. Very sweet and fluffy. And it fits my preferences very well. So I will give this five stars.

Cute af story! I love the trope of haughty yet spoiled use and doting gong. Just wish it were longer and had more mature scenes :)
