Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Erotic editor Bussel (Baby Got Back) proves less is more in this collection of nibble-size erotic stories that are just long enough to fuel the imagination. There is something for every mood—funny, kinky, touching, spontaneous, and even vengeful. In Thomas S. Roche’s “How You Christen a Bed,” the surprising delight is in the woman’s postorgasmic statement. Celicia Tan’s “Her Lover Is a Flame” and Bussel’s own “I’m on Fire” give a new meaning to hot sex. Riley Shane’s “Feast for the Senses” entertains with sensory pleasure. Evoë Thorne’s lovely “Squirt” illustrates how longtime partners avoid lesbian bed death. An unused toy comes to life with a proper lover in Jade A. Wata’s “The Flogger.” Everyone will find something to appreciate here, and all the stories are easy to read as they titillate and entertain. (Nov.)

Madison Kink

"The stories are well written and surprising. They are personal and political, and each one pushes taboo and reminds us that sex is much stranger and more varied than we think."
The Daily Californian

"The stories are short, so choose your hand or vibrator speed carefully. Don’t be surprised when you have to dog-ear pages to return to your favorites. You’ll want to revisit these stories. Or should I say—you’ll want to come again."
–Weekly Alibi

Columbus Free Press

"This imaginative book of adult fun is great book for ideas with that special someone. They are all different, not one is like another. Great to read to that special someone for a little added spice or to read alone and share what you learned later."
Networking Witches

"Hot stories and people getting off six (or 69) ways from Sunday."

"This book certainly lives up to its title. While never wavering from mainstream sexual tastes, there's an admirable amount of variation in the lust play and shadings. If you're looking for a light-hearted erotica romp anthology, this may be the collection for you."
Reading by Pub Light

"These are great little stories by well-known authors and each one is worth picking up the book."
Romancing the Book

B. D. Swain

Tell me what you want. Show me what you like. Let me watch you fuck yourself. I want to study you. I want to learn all about you and never stop learning. I used to be the kind of cocky butch dyke who pounced and wanted to have my way, but I've learned to take my time with a new lover. So sit me down right here. Strap my ankles to the chair legs. Secure my wrists behind my back. Leave the lights on bright. Make sure I see everything. Sit down in front of me. Touch me. Show me what interests you.

I am bound tightly to the chair. She loosens my tie and runs a fingertip inside my collar. I close my eyes while she focuses on me. I feel her on my shirt buttons. Her fingers drag across my collarbones and up to the stiff muscles in my neck. She pushes my shirt down my shoulders and slips the tie completely off. I feel her breath, hot on my shoulder. Now I feel her lips. Her fingers find the hair under my arms and pull at it, pet it. She nudges me with her nose and tells me I have a sexy scent. I shift a little in my chair. She is so slow in her interrogation. I am getting impatient for my lessons.

She explores me with her mouth while her hands crawl down my back, my shoulder blades. Her tongue pushes into the weight of my breast. I feel her teeth wanting to bite me. I sit up tall. Her fingers dig deep, climbing slowly up my back, over my shoulders and down my chest. One whole hand covers my breast. She licks me through her fingers. "Hurt me," I say. "You can be rough. I'll let you know if it's too much." She pinches me hard—harder than I expect. It gets me wet immediately and I groan in my throat with the pleasure of it.

Suddenly her teeth are on my nipple and the pain is stinging. She grabs at my belt and undoes it. She fumbles with my pants and jerks them down but suddenly stops. She moves away from me completely and my hands suddenly strain at being bound. My fingers reach into the air blindly. She is behind me now, and her fingers thread through my hair. One hand tugs a little at my ear. She kisses the top of my head and tells me to open my eyes. She leans over me and lets her hands fall. They slide down my chest all the way to my thighs where she balls up the fabric of my trousers and growls, saying, "You almost let me move too quickly."

She circles the chair and stands right in front of me as she unbuttons her blouse. She peels off her bra and tosses it onto my lap. She turns around and bends over, pushing her pants down with her ass teasingly near my face.

She is so simply and lovingly unashamed in this bright light. She stands there and lets me take it in, watching my eyes look at her. I am grateful for her. I am so grateful that I fear I might cry and be misunderstood.

She sits on my lap, snapping me back into the moment. She puts a hand on the back of my head and pushes her nipple into my mouth. I open my mouth wide for her. She grips my neck tightly. I freeze. She slowly slides her nipple across my tongue and back again over and over. I reach my tongue out. She pulls my head and smashes my face onto her breast and I suck. My mouth is moving on her. I am eager to show her how my tongue moves. Too soon she backs away again.

Her breathing is fast. I can see that glow on her skin. She sits on the bed in front of me, staring. She looks so serious. This is serious. She slides back farther on the bed and relaxes against the sheets. She pulls her knees up. I am staring at her cunt. I feel my breath push my belly in, out. I'm nearly panting, the adrenaline building inside me as I take her in. One hand rests low on her belly, just above her pussy. Her other hand is higher, her nipple squeezed between her fingers. I see now that she's already wet. Oh my god, I can see it. She is showing me.

She slides her hand between her legs. Her fingers move in jagged circles. At first she's slow and her body is still, but then I see her hips move. I jerk myself forward in my chair. I can't help it. She grabs a long, curved glass dildo. She is circling her clit with one hand. The other hand is pushing the dildo quickly in with a slower pull out. I am learning this. I am feeling my muscles pushing and pulling. I am seeing the angle my head will want to be at with my tongue on her clit when I get to do this to her. I am desperate to taste her.

She pulls faster now. I can see that it's the pull and not the push that excites her. I wonder if she'll ejaculate. I think she will. My ankles and wrists are pulling against these cuffs. I am making noises in my chair. I'm ready for her to set me free, but she isn't going to stop now. I don't want her to stop. She pulls out and a clear stream follows. "Oh my god," I say. "That is so fucking hot." Her body is still writhing. She hasn't climaxed yet.

Watching her like this is incredible. She knows it's sexy, but she has no true idea how powerful this is. "You have no idea," I say, stunned and worshipful. I am overwhelmed by her trust, by everything she is giving me. One hand pulls the lips of her pussy wide and the other strokes. Her fingers circle the pink, wet lips and trace a path up and around her clitoris. The movement starts slow but quickly builds. Her fingers start to spend more time just below her clit. She lifts her hips, and I watch her toes reach long. Her jaw hangs loose, and I can hear her breathing faster. Too quickly, it's over. Her hips jerk and then she is surfacing and pulling up on her elbows, smiling at me. The lesson ends.

She stares at me with a knowing, sweet look in her eyes. She sits in my lap, takes my face in her hands and kisses me. "You amaze me," I whisper. She unbuckles my wrists, then my ankles. "Let's see what you learned," she says.

"This is just the beginning," I say, "and I never want it to end."

    This is one of the most correct book titles I think I've ever seen. This big ole book is full of story after story of orgasms. If you want a resolution you won't find it here. lol These are literally just 2-3 pages stories about people in the throes of orgasmic bliss. Some are super hot and some are on the tamer side. I don't recommend reading this one a plane full of people. Some of these had me blushing and wishing I wasn't stuck on a plane with a bunch of strangers if you know what I mean. That's pretty much all I can say about this one lol :)
