In praise of Got a Minute? 60 Second Erotica, "The moments Tyler has collected here are all-embracing and all-inclusive, with heterosexual, bisexual, lesbian, and gay fantasies bumping up against each other from one moment to the next, the precise poetic prose on one page followed by quick and dirty dialogue on the next, and rough romp after that." Sarah Estrella, The National Examiner
"Hurts so goodat face value, it seems to be a contradiction. But the art of power exchangethe heart and soul of BDSMis its own special type of alchemy, creating a dreamy world where pain equals pleasure and bondage means freedom.
Consider the position a submissive willingly puts himself in: bound and helpless, facing all of his dreams and fears as well as his mistress’s lash. Never mind the leatherclothed or naked, he is stripped down to his most basic physical and emotional needs in his quest to relinquish control and expose himself to an extreme range of feelings and sensations.
As time seems to slow, drawing out the moments between beats of his heart, he confronts his warring desires and his world is reduced to what she allows him to experience: the snug embrace of his restraints, the ticklish tease of her fingernails being drawn across his flesh, the hot rush of her breath against the back of his neck. Anticipation is a heady elixir, whetting his erotic appetite even as nervousness swells inside him.
Without warning, the snap of leather against skin offers a loud report, like a bright flash of lightning before the rumbling thunder strike. A split second later, the impact of that expertly placed lash resonates as a sharp spark within him, the heat building as she takes him higher and higher with each additional stroke.
And as he accepts her gift of paintesting his will and striving toward the bliss of releasehe is the furthest thing from weak.
It takes tremendous strength, resolve and trust to put yourself completely in the hands of another personone whom you know with absolute certainty is going to push your limits, physically and emotionally. But it’s this swirl of sensations and feelings that combine in a perfect storm of kink and makes the seemingly impossible not only occur, but happen in a way that creates a sexy good time for everyone involved. As the editor of Penthouse Variations magazine, I receive letters every day from readers who not only understand these seemingly conflicting worlds but experience their pleasures first-hand.
The sensual stories that Alison Tyler has assembled in this collection delve into the dynamics of relationships filled with such unrestrained passion, revealing a world of beautiful contradictions that will thrill and inspire you.
Some of these tales show how the everyday can be instantly transformed into pulse-quickening moments laced with eroticism. Sommer Marsden’s Panty Lines and Jay Lawrence’s Provocation reflect the experiences of couples that work episodes of power play into their daily lives, momentarily enjoying the thrill of the game and then returning to their usual roles.
Other stories in this anthology, like Morgan Aine’s Party Manners and Xan West’s First Time Since, reveal the emotions at play beneath more intense D/s relationships. These authors tell tales of deeply passionate experiences, and the payoff for these characters is directly commensurate with the depth of their emotional investment. These darker fantasies complement the light, allowing this collection to reveal a full spectrum of experiences within the world of S&M.
Read through these sinfully decadent tales and let their words wash over you. Each story will build upon the next, their erotic episodes fleshing out a complex portrait of passion as they embrace the pleasurable paradox of kink and its many luscious possibilities."
