Yes, Ma'am:
Erotic Stories of Male Submission

Edited by Rachel Kramer Bussel

Book Review by Angelika Devlyn

Male SubmissionTaking a long hard look at male submission has never been so much fun! Yes, Ma'am; Erotic Stories of Male Submission gathers 18 delectable tales of submissive men dominated by strong, sometimes ruthless, women who know precisely how they expect to be pleased, and woe betide any subs who do or say otherwise. Luckily, equilibrium rules in this book , which means in "Angie Speak," there are plenty of men willing to take the derisive jeers and sneers that come with being the lowest of the low. But do not fear, they are not the weak, spineless creatures you may at first believe. Their inner strength proves that they too know precisely how tofulfill their own needs, holding the ultimate power between the two opposing forces of dominance and submission.

In "Zero Sum Game," by Alex Mendra, the protagonist plays a cruel game he can never win, and doesn't want to win. He knows who hold's the true power in their relationship.

Ellen Tevault's Loretta cannot believe her husband, Henry's bare assed cheek when he reveals his "Secret Desires." Is he glutton for punishment? Oh, yes!

In "Tea for Three" there's another shock on the horizion for poor Jennifer, when the tea-serving worm Johnathan's newfound assertiveness goes beyond the norm. The worm has indeed turned, but will he be able to wriggle out of this one or pay for it later? I know which one my money's on.

"A Different Kind of Reality Show" demonstrates there is no escape for the boy in D. L. King's 24/7 fun and games. Is there nothing he won't do to see it through the kinky week? He'll forfeit hispay cheque if he can't stand the heat.

The editor of this anthology, Rachel Kramer Bussel, shows us how well she can write with "Secretary's Day." Matthew is entrusted with an enormous amount of responsibility, and fully committed but will me make it through the interview being so horny?

"Wedding Night" written by Dominic Santi is one night neither the bride, groom or reader will forget in a hurry. Newly weds quickly sort out who's on top and who is going to be begging for mercy after one drink too many.

"Get the picture?" The blushing, naked and bound slave put on display as Exhibit A for the amusement of the women's group, certainly does. According to author Chris Cooper, a little bit of humiliation goes a long, long way. With the same name as the protagonist, I am sure he knows that all too well. 

This is just a small selection of sizzling short stories to feed your burning desires, and there are still more I haven't mentioned. Let's just say, each sub gets the punishments they yearn for, and we get an arousing read from some wonderful authors; writers who know how to push the right buttons when it comes to the domineering  mistresses and wives and their wicked streaks of pure sadism. 

Yes, Ma'am includes many names heard before, Debra Hyde, Alison Tyler, Ellen Tevault and some debut authors who also have what it takes to to get published. Being a Brit I have to give a special mention to George Cross, a fellow British author and sub. Got to love a name like that. A great writer he is, too! An inspiring collection of power hungry, lusty women, demanding the respect they deserve. Where there's a will, there's a way, that's for sure. What a scorcher!

About the Author:  British born Angelika Devlyn, as her pseudonym suggests, is half a shy and angelic soul, and half a naughty little devil. Her good side reviews smut for Sassy Brit at, and here at Erotica Readers and Writers Association. Her devilish alter ego writes a column, 'Ask the Spanking Mavens: Advice to Spankophiles' with Professor Devlin O'Neill, author of several erotic novels and a self-professed expert on spanking. Oh yes, and she also works as a sex toy reviewer, and writes a bit of erotica herself.
