Short Story Reviews

If you have a short attention span but you love erotica, short stories are the perfect way to get you in the mood for masturbation and sex. As an avid reader myself, I find that everyday pressures usually get in the way of bedtime reading in that I rarely have the time to indulge in a really good book. Therefore, I find reading short stories for my short story reviews help me to relax, unwind and get in the mood for something a little naughty.

Fans of short stories will tell you how important it is to read story reviews. After all, the beauty of erotic short stories is that you know you’ll get down to the nitty gritty is a relatively quick time. So, you don’t want to waste that time on a piece of erotica that isn’t going to get you going. My short story reviews cover lots of different genres and have an 'at a glance' score rating so that those in a rush can tell immediately if a tale is going to pique their interest.

Most of the titles you see on the Cara Sutra sex blog have been reviewed by me. However, some of my honest short story reviews have been carried out by my team of community reviewers. Together, we have received hundreds of different erotic short stories from vampire erotica, historical erotica, gay erotica, horror erotica, romantic erotica, BDSM erotica, lesbian erotica and so many more…

I hope you enjoy reading through these erotica reviews.

A Slice of Sin Volume 1 by Cherry Wild & Sophia Soror Book Review...

Price:

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.

That, apparently, was all the invitation she needed to dig in. My body tensed as she stuck out her sexy pink tongue and dragged it over my knob, swiping up the milky drop in the process. With a dramatic lick of her lips, she put on a show of oohing and aahing over the delicious treat of my dick, and in response, I surged forward uncontrollably, bumping her mouth with my cockhead.

Guest Erotic Book Review: Casual Collisions by Livilla Sanders

9 out of 10
Price:
£1.81
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.

The Big Book of Submission by Rachel Kramer Bussel 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.

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.

I recently finished reading this gay erotic anthology, and I found it to be average in terms of the story quality and the building up in details. One issue for me was in development. I found that some of the stories could have been developed to be a bit longer, add a bit more to them to make them a bit more lush or a bit more alluring.

The book is a fantastic mix of bondage related tales and I'm sure that there is something for all bondage lovers in it. I just loved it from start to finish! I tend to judge an erotic book by how engrossed I get and how turned on I get reading it, this book had my pulse racing and even though each story isn't very long, they still managed to turn me on!
