Overview


Your every fantasy will be laid bare as you devour these sure, sensual stories. In Best Lesbian Erotica 2012, women are looking for a little bit of everything: love, lust, someone they can trust. In the bath, at the “toy” store, or in the kitchen, they’re ready to take a chance that could lead to the experience of a lifetime. This year’s guest judge is the Sugarbutch herself: Sinclair Sexsmith, poet, performer, impresario. Mr. Sexsmith has selected work from an international field of authors, from top names in erotic fiction, to outstanding newcomers. DeJay’s “Never Too Old” proves that an old(ish) butch can learn new tricks, even if it means showing her boxers to an impossibly young salesgirl. Last year's judge, Lea DeLaria, slips between the covers of this year's edition with her story about love...or lust...in an elevator. In “Skindeep,” Anna Watson tells the story of a femme who gets to the bottom of her lover’s disappearing acts. Best Lesbian Erotica 2012 is fully loaded, literary and lustful. Curated by Lammy Award-nominated editor Kathleen Warnock, this volume is long on variety and even longer on beautifully developed characters who are as interesting as they are interested in getting girls

Best Lesbian Erotica 2012 is the real deal. Guest editor Sinclair Sexsmith along with Kathleen Warnock have gathered a wide spectrum of deliciously written stories that span the range from sweetness to guttural, high school to retirement, submission to dominance, and strictly human to vampiric. There is something in this book--probably more than one something--to delight the senses of every reader. Like bookends, the sweet stories that start and finish this book hold the rest of the stories safe and sound. "Touched" (Amy Butcher) explores critical early erotic choices while "Never Too Old" (DeJay) shows that an old dog can definitely learn new tricks. "Rebel Girl" (Kirsty Logan) is a great feisty story of girl love. "Hush" (Treasure Sapphire) a gender bending delight. "Blood Lust" (Giselle Renarde) makes you ponder the true source of artistic inspiration. "The Last Time" (Dani M) captures that painful intersection of lust and hurt and anger. "My Femme" (Evan Mora) is a delightful Corvette ride. "How He Likes It" (Xan West) takes the reader deeper inside S/M. "Vacation" (Ali Oh) provides inspiration for your next trip home to the family. "On My Honor" (D.L. King) will make girl scout merit badges never look the same. "50's Waitress" (Julia Noel Goldman) is simple and sublime. "Skin Deep" (Anna Watson) filled with tenderness. "When You Call" (Sharon Wachsler) lets us live into erotic complexity through the lens of one character's particular disability. "Neck Magic" (Nancy Irwin) embodies the feeling of submission freely given and received. And don't forget to read the Introduction by Sinclair Sexsmith, it'll remind you why this kind of writing matters deeply. All in all, the whole delicious sandwich of powerfully written, exquisitely explored stories covers the broad terrain of our erotic delights and is a completely satisfying meal. So grab yourself a bite of this great collection. It'll wake up your body and your imagination and feed your soul!

There are various tales of sex, romance, and intrigue, in this erotic page-turner. I loved all the stories but my favorite one had to be the one about the 1950's waitress. It was very subtle, and because of that very sexy. I've never read a more intense nor sexy anniversary story. This story is just the tip of iceberg though, as all of them offer something a little different, a little raunchier, a little sexier.
