Overview

With her groundbreaking works of erotica, Lonnie Barbach has given women a forum to express their most passionate and imaginative fantasies about sex and sexual encounters. These graphic stories, filled with the unexpected and the forbidden, brilliantly capture the myriad layers, colors, and visions of every woman's sexuality. A book that can be read as a starting point for shared intimacies or as a pleasure experienced in solitude, EROTIC INTERLUDES stimulates the mind as well as the body. These twenty-one stories by and about women--yound and old, married and single, heterosexual and lesbian--bring a feminine point of view to such subjects as mysterious partners, racy games, and risque encounters. But most important, EROTIC INTERLUDES is fun, celebrating a woman's sensualtiy and reaffirming her right to the positive pleasures and adventure of sex. The result is a classic work of explicit passion, ready to be thoroughly enjoyed.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
What do women wantsexually? Here 21 women writers, some pseudonymous, spin a variety of candid erotic fantasies in an attempt to answer the question with a turn-on for every taste and circumstance. One of the most imaginative, ``The House of the Twin Jewels,'' describes a futuristic brothel for female patrons. ``A Japanese Play'' features group sex for money while the camera rolls. ``The Scavenger Hunt'' and ``Humming'' celebrate lesbian love, the latter affording a healing experience for one partner, her ``aging body wracked these days with the storms of menopause.'' In ``Fearful Symmetry'' the handicapped male lover has a prosthetic arm. ``Cradles of Light'' mingles autoerotic enjoyments with memories of the past. Clinical therapist Barbach has written and edited several volumes (including the nonfiction Pleasures: Women Write Erotica designed to help women fulfill their sensual potential. Her introductory comments to this book stress the need for affirmation, tenderness and mystery. Unhappily, many of the stories suffer from awkwardly sentimental and amateurish writing. Literary Guild and Doubleday Book Club alternates. (October 17)

When I first began to read about what this book contained, I was ecstatic, I couldn't wait to get my hands on it. Real life erotic stories from women who were willing to share their stories?! Why wouldn't I have been excited? Lol. Reading this sort of material has become somewhat of a recent adventure for me. It's captivating, stimulating, and just plain awesome!!! And I applaud the women who took part in the making of this book, they're truly amazing, and their stories are incredible. I say buy it if this is your cup of tea. If you don't like erotica, move on. :)

I bought this book as a fun new form of foreplay for my husband and I, and was very disappointed in it's content. Sure, it had a few hot sentences, but it mostly focused on the emotions that sex stirs and analyzing feelings. It also seemed like a lot of the authors were trying to write abstract(bad)poetry, including lots of very strange similies and metaphors. (ex.: 'The bed was a kingdom, then the inside of a cup, the night pouring in tasted like mint.' What the hell?!) Anyway I did finish the book, because one , I'm a person who always keeps a vigil of hope, and two, I bought it. I think I'll sell it at my next garage sale for 50 cents. Too bad for the person who buys it.
