Yes, Sir:
Erotic Stories of Female Submission

Edited by Rachel Kramer Bussel

Book Review by Angelika Devlyn

Female SubmissionsSo many ways to submit! The Anthology Yes, Sir, edited by Rachel Kramer Brussel takes a long hard look at female submission through several erotic stories bound in one great volume. A companion to the Yes, Ma'am collection of selected stories of male submission.

"How Bad Do YOU Want It?" That is the question talented author Gwen Masters answers in delightful detail in this beautiful mnage trois.

In Alison Tyler's "The Art of Darkness," Greer is afraid of how she will react to being blindfolded. Does Killian have the skill to persuade her that there is beauty in sensory deprivation, even though she is afraid of the dark?

On a date with another man, Amelia is forced to stand "In the Corner" by her ex-boyfriend, Richard and realises that a vanilla relationship is no longer an option. A very public display by author, Sommer Marsden.

The demands of a college professor's assignments send protagonist, Tina, to her creative limits, as her dominating "Dear Professor Pervert" searches for new humiliating ways to keep her masturbation journal deliciously kinky; analysing and marking each attempt for its style and content. Top marks for Donna George Storey.

Whilst "Stuck at Work and Late for a Date" the protagonist is forced to please her boss, with a cunning 'Chelsea Summers' style twist.

When Debra Hyde's submissive speaks too much she gets her tongue clamped. A "Necessary Correction" some may say! (I can see that catching on in the vanilla world).

In "Running Wild," author Shanna Germain, writes a wonderful story of how the hired help uses his skill and determination to pull the reigns tight when needed. At the husband's request.

"The Editor," and title for Amanda Earl's story, is demanding so many rewrites Tina wonders if they'll ever be good enough. Luckily, her editor insists they meet and is more than happy to give her a helping hand.

In "Ribbons" the buzz of submitting to a stranger, who remains an enigma throughout this story, is almost too much to bear as Lilly finds herself wrapped up in a scary, but exciting submissive role, where actions speak louder than words. Do choices have consequences? Ask author Katheryn O'Halloran.

"The Day I Came in Public," by D.L. King is a superb addition to this anthology. Highlighting the need to submit despite the humiliation involved for Libby as she watches her Master play with another sub, with startling consequences.

Elizabeth Cauldwell's "Lunch" will tease your taste buds with this titillating peek into the daily lunch tasks Michael sets his sub. And there's never a dull menu in sight.

In Maddy Stuart's story, "Reclaiming the Sofa" is synonymous with reclaiming the natural order of dominance and submission for one randy roommate and her boyfriend.

There's a new dimension of pain in Lisabet Sarai's electrifying story, "Body Electric," where she thinks of some unusual ways to give her protagonists a thrill.

If "Pink is the Enemy," then Duke is rather using it to his advantage. Great tale of what happens when the rules are not followed, by Jocelyn Bringas.

"When Penny Met Harry" author Stan Kent supplies them with a spanking good time as Penny acts out her dangerous, but exciting fantasies with a man she has only just met.

Just the title "Make Me" makes me want to misbehave! The anthology's very own editor supplies another brilliant story of how fun it is to be bratty and test the all-knowing evil eye as much as I dare, on the odd occasion. Despite possible consequences. Oh, yeah. A girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do.

"Under his Hand, I Blossom" is a spiritual meeting of two souls. One demanding Dom and a sub of whom can do nothing but trust him. Blind anticipation meets with pleasure and pain and a moment of sheer bliss, but what will it be—submit completely or say goodbye. Well done, Nikki Magennis for this memorable, bum warming tale.

Here are several sexy women wanting to give up her will, be controlled, made to obey and (occasionally) be told NO! Why? Because it makes them happy. In their element, which is where you'll be when you read this book. "The Power of No," as author Teresa Noelle Roberts says, can take you to the most pleasurable, painful edge! Whether vanilla or not, "Sitting on Ice Cream," (Lisette Ashton) can throw even the most reluctant exhibitionist into the theatrical limelight. So many ways to submit!

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.
