Editor wanted for inexperienced author; 4000 words, erotic coupling

I'm interested in finding an editor for my work. I'm quite new to Literotica and have published two stories (see https://www.literotica.com/stories/m...ge=submissions).

This story is now about 4,000 words, and was originally much longer with a back story and character development. It's a female first person account of public sex with a married co-worker.

Feedback suggested that the back story was just not sexy, and GET TO THE POINT. So I have tried to condense this draft, but I think it may still be too long.

I would like an editor to help with the overall content and structure, suggesting things to move or cut or what needs to be expanded. As I'm normally a scientific nerdy type, my writing style might be a bit, uh, abrupt for literature. I'd also therefore like stylistic suggestions. I'm reasonably literate and I think my semi-colons are in the right place.

I'd also like some tips on good titles and tag lines. One of my stories is much higher rated than the other, and I suspect that higher rating is due to people finding what they wanted to read.

Thank you for any help you can provide, oh Volunteer Editor.

I can give a quick structural edit and advice, but no promises for catching all the typos.
