Book Review: Fifty Writers On Fifty Shades of Grey

The first thing I think you need to know in all of this is that I borrowed a copy of Fifty Shades Of Grey from my mother.  That’s right, to get this review under way, I wanted to first read the actual book before reading essays on the book, so I asked my mother if I could borrow her precious copy.  Yes, my mother is a diehard fan of 50 Shades, and while she raised a super sex-positive, academic pervert, I would not classify my mother as especially open about these things.  In fact, she as a motherly and suburban … Continue reading Book Review: Fifty Writers On Fifty Shades of Grey

Oral Sex That’ll Blow Her Mind: An Illustrated Guide to Giving Her Amazing Orgasms

The big fantasy when it comes to sex education is that once high school is finished, everyone knows everything about sex that they will need to know for the rest of their lives.  Ok, I’ll wait while your laughter dies down.  It’s a ridiculous idea, isn’t it – made even more ridiculous by the fact that many sex education programs today are little more than cautionary tales that rely on preaching abstinence.  It’s no wonder that folks are getting to be adults and are clueless when it comes to sex.  Luckily there are people out there who are ready to … Continue reading Oral Sex That’ll Blow Her Mind: An Illustrated Guide to Giving Her Amazing Orgasms

Book Review – Mind-Blowing Sex: A Woman’s Guide

I have such a lady boner for Diana Cage.  Yes, she is a super duper hot femme, with a wit and attitude to match, but that’s not all I am sweatin’.  This sexpot can write!  Hot Damn!  That brain of hers is smokin’!!  The one time editor of lesbian porno mag On Our Backs, and author of Girl Meets Girl: A Dating Survival Guide, is back with a new how-to masterpiece, Mind-Blowing Sex: A Woman’s Guide. While they playing field is slowly inching towards leveling out, it’s just a fact that women’s sexuality is still a pretty taboo topic.  But … Continue reading Book Review – Mind-Blowing Sex: A Woman’s Guide

Sometimes She Lets Me: Butch/Femme Erotica

Butch/Femme dynamics have always held a special place in my heart.  Alright, in my heart and in my pants.  Yep, I think butch/femme dynamics are super duper hot.  There is something about the delicious performances of masculinity and femininity that fit within that queer framework that give my bottom that special tingle.  Maybe it’s because I identify as a femme and I’ve always had my eye on masculine-identified queers, be they butch women or transgender men.  Or maybe it’s just this amazing subset of society that has a rich history that I find alluring. Either way, I totally jumped at … Continue reading Sometimes She Lets Me: Butch/Femme Erotica

Best Lesbian Romance 2011

I’ve been devouring the enormous pile of books I received for Christmas this year lately, so I haven’t picked up an erotica in a while. When I got a copy of Best Lesbian Romance 2011 from my friends at Cleis Press, I figured it was time to put down the Heinlein and pick up some smut! Of course, from the title, you can probably guess that the seventeen stories the legendary Radclyffe picked out aren’t wall to wall sex, but there’s definitely some steamy action mixed in! It’s a great collection to read with a cup of tea or the … Continue reading Best Lesbian Romance 2011

Erotic Bible To Europe – The Book

A few months back, I got a chance to review Erotic Bible to Europe, an interactive website featuring a detailed map of every sex toy shop, swinger party, lingerie store and more, that Europe has to offer.  Of course I was blow away by not only the brilliance of the idea, but the flawless execution.  But then again, the project was created by the fabulous Erika Lust, porn director extraordinaire, so honestly, I’m not surprised.  And now this awesome guide to everything frisky on the other side of the pond comes in book form as well! Organized by region and … Continue reading Erotic Bible To Europe – The Book

Hot and Bothered 4

Arsenal Pulp’s Hot & Bothered 4 is not a new book. Hell, it’s nearly eight years old at this point, but good writing is timeless and I love this collection of short tales of lesbian love and lust. One thing I really appreciated about this book is that it took me back a few years to a time when I was just out of college and had few concerns outside of meeting girls & drinking beer. Carol Queen (<3 her!) opens the book with She’s Not A Lesbian – a story that didn’t really turn me on as much as … Continue reading Hot and Bothered 4

Orgasmic

Erotica fans have likely heard of Rachel Kramer Bussel and if they haven’t they need to get on the ball! Bussel’s Cleis Press collections have been providing me with one-handed reading for years and this is another fine example of erotica at it’s best. Orgasmic features 25 stories that focus on the big O from a woman’s perspective and if that’s not reason to read it ladies, I’m not sure what will convince you. One thing I love about this collection is that the stories cover a number of fantasies and kinks because the theme is pretty general. If hopping … Continue reading Orgasmic

Kinky Nature

Two of my favorite things in the whole wide world are beautiful women and the great outdoors, so I kind of feel like Emma Delves-Broughton’s Kinky Nature was made just for me. It’s packed full of gorgeous girls decked out in their rubber and heels and will have the biggest couch potato lacing on their hiking boots and heading into the woods in hope of catching just one glimpse of these sexy nymphs! While I loved all of the bare bodies on display, my favorite images were those where the girls were extra kinky. There’s just something about a pale … Continue reading Kinky Nature

Please Ma’am

It’s been a while since I’ve sat down with an erotica collection, so when I received Please, Ma’am in the mail I decided to make some time for myself and dig in! This Cleis Press book was edited by Rachel Kramer Bussel and I always love the results when this lovely lady is involved. I’m always pleased with the wide variety of taboo subjects she manages to work into one sexy book! This book contains eighteen stories of male submission including D.L King, Graydancer and Bussel herself. Things start off excellently in Teresa Noelle Roberts’ I Live to Serve. This … Continue reading Please Ma’am
