Red Hots Valentine Anthology with Caitlyn Lynch, Erotic Book Review | Pleasure Panel

By Meitiman:
I feel like most people have a strong feeling about Valentine’s Day. Either they dismiss it entirely as just another day that has been twisted into an excuse to sell products (i.e. – candy, flowers, and lingerie) or they feel it is a sacred holiday to celebrate love and watch out if you’re the crazy man who breaks a girl’s heart on Valentine’s Day. The Red Hots Valentine Anthology caters to the latter half.

A Slice of Sin Volume 1 by Cherry Wild & Sophia Soror Book Review (Pleasure Panel)

Price:
£6.73
Publisher:
Amazon

By Lily Palmer:
Erotica is one of the most difficult genres to write, in my opinion anyway. Erotic short stories are even trickier. Imagine having to write a background story, fully developed characters and a sex scene that is arousing to most of your readers.

Libidinous Zombie Erotic Horror Anthology by Rose Caraway – Pleasure Panel Review

By Emmanuelle de Maupassant
Eight authors, each with their own style and approach, take their turn to explore the nature of our erotic drive, relentless and destructive: the ‘Libidinous Zombie‘ within. As Remittance Girl so perfectly describes it: ‘the delicious marriage between horror and eroticism’.

Mammoth Book of New Erotica 13

Mammoth Book Of Best New Erotica 13 – Pleasure Panel Review

Price:

Publisher:
Amazon
Materials: Paper

By Emmanuelle de Maupassant
The most ‘disturbing’ of the tales in the Mammoth Book Of Best New Erotica 13 is Anna Lidia Vega Serova’s refreshingly original ‘Cancer’. It takes the reader to a far darker place than most tales dare. Its strength lies in its honesty, being unafraid to explore the compulsion of a fetish, however repugnant.

By Horny Geek Girl
When Cara put out a call asking for someone to review this erotic anthology, Best Women’s Erotica Of The Year Vol 1, I jumped at the chance. Previous books in the series have introduced me to some great writers, and I was eager to see what this latest edition would have to offer. This was Rachel Kramer Bussel’s first year taking the helm, and I was curious to see how she would put her stamp on this latest edition.

Penthouse Variations on Oral from Cleis Press – Pleasure Panel Erotic Book Review

Price:
£10.36
Materials: Paper

By Angel R Rivera / gypsylibrarian
Got a little erotica reading done recently with Penthouse Variations on Oral. This volume is by the editors of Penthouse Variations. Now, I will admit that I have not read Penthouse or Penthouse Variations for some time, a deficit I need to remedy down the road. I do enjoy erotic tales featuring oral sex, so I looked forward to reading this new volume. I have to say that this collaboration with Cleis Press was a pleasant reading experience.

Well, this certainly perked up my working day!

Guest Erotic Book Review: Casual Collisions by Livilla Sanders

Price:
£1.81
Publisher:
Self Published

By Mel Macfarlane, Voluptasse
My favourite story was First Impressions. This story was quite poignant and details Sandra Fletcher‘s anger and frustration at a cruel and uncaring world. She meets a friendly woman called Gillian at the train station. They swap numbers and embark upon a friendship which awakens a side of Sandra that she had smothered because of a tragic and painful past. This story left me feeling excited for the character because she desperately needed a new beginning and I felt so involved with her that I wanted things to improve, and they certainly do.

Guest Erotic Book Review: Best Sex Writing 2013 -The State Of Today’s Sexual Culture edited by Rachel Kramer Bussel

Price:
£11.99
Publisher:
Cleis Press
Materials: Paper

By Voluptasse
As the owner of a sex toy business myself, I was particularly interested in Andy Isaacson’s anecdote into the life of the JimmyJane creator Ethan Imbodan. His struggles were fascinating, relatable and even featured a cameo from the famous rapper Snoop Dog. He talks about the desires of the company and the ethos behind the JimmyJane brand and the perils of working in an unregulated market. It explores the sexuality of women and the battle of a determined entrepreneur to penetrate the most complicated female organ, the brain.

The Big Book of Submission by Rachel Kramer Bussel – Pleasure Panel Book Review

Price:
£9.41
Publisher:
Cleis Press
Materials: Paper

By A Winter
The Big Book of Submission boasts a meaty 69 stories (I wonder why they chose that number!). Even though they are shorts, with some feeling more along the lines of flash fiction, it is a vast amount and it’ll be hard for you to go through it and not find something you like. You will in fact find a little bit of everything. Straight, lesbian and gay sex, along with both male and female submission.
I enjoyed reading many of the shorts in this book because it was just so easy. I could read one when I had five or ten minutes (think waiting for the bathroom to be free or for water to boil) but there are several things that could have been improved.

Never Say Never by Alison Tyler – Pleasure Panel Review

By G String
Here’s the best bit I love about this book, not only is it fantastic to quench your curiosity with lots of answers, but snuggled in the middle of each chapter is a naughty little erotic story detailing the activity in practice that’s sure to really get the inspiration going..

I think this book would be fantastic for someone who’s curiosity is hindered by their lack of knowledge but also for someone searching for some ideas as to what they can try next.

Slave Girls Erotic Stories of Submission by DL King – Pleasure Panel Review

Materials: Paper

By Dizzy Wizzy
Slave Girls as a title conjures up thoughts of submissive women, willing and happy to do just about anything simply to please their dominant (male or female) however, something that comes across very strongly is the fact that the submissives have their very own sense of power and control, in so far as they are able to use safewords in the event that the activities become too much for them to bear.

Best Erotic Romance 2014 by Kristina Wright – Pleasure Panel Book Review

Price:
£11.99
Publisher:
Cleis Press
Materials: Paper

By A Winter
To many the idea of having to make time and schedule in sex is a turn-off. I know it can have that effect on me more often than not, but when we manage to overcome that and get in right frame of mind it can be some of the best sex in a long time. This is the idea the anthology leaves me with and it hits close to home. The characters are so believable in those stories that could have been boring – not unusual and exciting enough – but they prove we don’t need extremes. These, coupled with the more unexpected and novel stories give huge variety.
