APPEALING TO EVERY TASTE AND TYPE OF SEXUAL ARRANGEMENT, NOTHING IS TABOO AND ANYTHING GOES IN THIS CUTTING-EDGE COLLECTION EDITED BY SUSIE BRIGHT AMERICA'S TASTEMAKER OF EROTICA
Book Magazine called her "America's ranking connoisseur of sex, porn, and freedom of physical expression." Tristan Taormino exalted, "The absolute bomb" in The Village Voice. More discerning than any judge and far ahead of the curve, Susie Bright plucks the best stories from every genre to create her much-anticipated annual collection.
In The Best American Erotica 2004, Broadway superstar Alan Cumming tells of the deep knowing offered by one stranger to another after casual sex; in science fiction hotshot Geoffrey Landis's bawdy fairy tale, we learn about the very first penis; Touré's breathless prose poem sets us up with an evening's worth of erotic visitors; and in Jerry Stahl's story, a man recalls his boyhood fascination with his mother's friends and their elaborate undergarments.
Always taking her readers to undiscovered places, Bright never disappoints in giving them an uninhibited, something-for-everyone collection of the year's most divine erotica.

I did not care for this book at all. I LOVE erotica stories but several in this book left me hanging, if you know what i mean, and you might as well skip the first few pages of each story because they are pointless to the experience. I mean why do you read erotica? For the erotica, duh. I like stories with a little more class that dont make me feel like such trash after I read them, e.i. I dont need all the pathetic details about doing cocaine, does'nt turn me on at all!!
This book is excellent modern day erotica. I've just discovered this author, now I have to back track and purchase all her books.
