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.
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.
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.
By Minxy Mischief I like nothing better than a good naughty read but often I feel let down, not raunchy enough or it just isn't just quite my thing. Being a lover of bondage myself I was hoping that this book would hit the spot! Expecting the usual, I put my book in my bag and started reading it on the way into town. I didn't expect the book to get right into the nitty gritty straight away. I was so wrong! I sat there squirming, hoping that no one would notice. I couldn't help but keep reading! Rope Dancer by Kathleen Tudor was right up my street! I couldn't help but imagine the feeling of the rope, I was totally lost in the story. I knew from the first story that I would really enjoy it and I did.
By Dizzy Wizzy Having been sent "Flying High" to review by the wonderful Cara Sutra, I couldn't wait to become engrossed by the many stories contained within this collection. With nearly 20 short stories to whet your appetite, all displaying various interpretations of the Mile High Club, the fantasies range from solo encounters and one night stands all the way through to group fun and voyeuristic pleasures.
By Latex Gimp The majority of the stories in Lust in Latex: Rubber Sex Stories are easy to digest in short bursts, and all involve some sort of steamy romance. For people who need a quick fix, these story collections are the way to go. The theme of this particular book collection is “rubber,” and this also includes latex, PVC clothing and the like. The collection features people who prefer to dress differently, act differently, and just be plain sexy.
By Voluptasse Kay Jaybee, one of my favourite erotic authors uses thorns to tease arousal from her readers whilst Heather Day leads us through a series of erotic tasks which find us wondering if you can orgasm without using your hands…. An inspiring collection and one that’s filled with orgasmic pleasure. It’s naughty and fun and I would recommend it. I like the short stories and the fact that every single story is completely different. I found the stories well written and the book very well put together.
If you've ever been guilty of flicking through a few pages to get to the bean-flicking action, you won't need to skip any of the pages in this book. Every single page seems to contain a new, inspiring and erotic tidbit to get your juices flowing and start the journey towards your very own orgasm, however you choose to get there.
By Angechaotiques Let me start with a couple of details about this book, Best Bondage Erotica 2013 by Rachel Kramer Bussel. Firstly, this is not a standalone novel, it is a collection of twenty two short stories by various authors, brought together by Rachel Kramer Bussel. Rachel has edited over forty anthologies so she is rather experienced in choosing what would be regarded as the “best”; hence the title of the book.
