Looking for online reading pleasure? We recommend:
Under Her Thumb: Erotic Stories of Female Domination by D. L. King (Ed)
Under Her Thumb: Erotic Stories of Female Domination will whet your appetite for all things Fem Dom. The book is a feast to be savored, whether your desires lean toward the bottom, the top, or you are simply curious. “Quiet” by Andrea Zanin will prepare you for all that is to come, and whether your interests lie in the loving submission of Lawrence Westerman’s “Her Majesty’s Plaything,” boys wrestling for the opportunity to please their mistress in Laura Antoniou’s “Blame Spartacus” or the ultimate domination of Valerie Alexander’s “La Sexorcista,” you will find what you’re looking for, and more – under her thumb.
From a foreword by Midori to stories by greats like Rachel Kramer Bussel, D. L. King, Teresa Noelle Roberts, Dominic Santi and more, you won’t want to put the book down; but you’ll have to – from time to time.
Twice the Pleasure: Bisexual Women's Erotica by Rachel Kramer Bussel (Ed)
Rachel Kramer Bussel is a card-carrying bisexual. She writes about it, talks about it, blogs about it and probably tweets, too. She is in a great relationship with a boyfriend but once you go bi you never to back. Bisexuality is not about keeping your options open, it is about looking at the world and seeing a lot more sexy. In a Huffington Post, she went on record, stating "I think ideally I'd like to have a male lover and a female lover, either a triad situation or one on one."
There is no better erotic mind on the planet better suited to editing Twice the Pleasure than Rachel Kramer Bussel. This big book of bi explores every option -There are girlfriends and wives, husbands and boyfriends, first dates, threesomes and much more here. There's daring and adventure, women taking risks by stepping outside their comfort zones, whether it's by surrendering to a bodyguard in "The State" by Tahira Iqbal or confronting "The Wife" of a male lover in Kay Jaybee's story, only to be confronted right back. The women you'll read about are attracted to strong women like "The Robber Girl" in Lori Selke's story, and men who surprise them with their sensitivity, such as in Bussel's own story, "A Little Fun."
La Dolce Vita: Contemporary Italian Erotica by Women by Maxim Jakubowski (Ed)
Italy is the land of La Dolce Vita (“the sweet life”)—but also amore and now, erotica. Bestselling editor Maxim Jakubowski has compiled and translated more than 25 stories, featuring the best of Italian erotica written by women.
Ageless Erotica by Joan Price (Ed)
Ageless Erotica is a steamy anthology of erotic stories and memoir essays written for a mature audience by writers over the age of 50. Edited by senior sex expert and advocate Joan Price, this collection is full of erotica that seniors can relate to—embracing the agelessness of sexuality while still encompassing the changes that accompany aging. Some selections are tender and loving, while others are edgy and kinky. But whether characters are going solo, having spicy sex with partners they love and have loved for decades, or engaging in casual encounters, every story included in these pages aims to arouse and to rejoice in the sensual side of aging.
Voracious: Erotica for Women by Violet Blue (Ed)
All steamed up and nothing to read? Voracious: Erotica for Women opens a Pandora’s box of pleasures, with scorching encounters, dreamy partners, and heart-pounding thrills that won’t put a run in your fishnets (and a few that will). In Teresa Noelle Roberts’ “Voice of an Angel,” an opera costumer helplessly infatuated with a countertenor — a man who sings a female part in baroque opera —makes interesting discoveries as she measures his inseam. In Susie Hara’s “Puffy Lips,” a refined woman indulges her primitive urge to take what she wants from a modern-day caveman in a dark alley. Kathleen Bradean’s “Chill” describes the lengths to which the heroine will go to enact her unusual, icy fetish at an exclusive “spa.” “Kink was the candy coating that made sex tastier,” she explains. “Fetish was sweet dark chocolate, straight up.”
Stylishly edited by sex guru Violet Blue, these edgy erotic treats showcase the most daring, best-written erotica available. And, like a gorgeous lover, it complements any bedroom decor.
The Mammoth Book of Best New Erotica 11 by Maxim Jakubowski (Ed)
The most enthralling annual collection of erotica by far with more than 40 pieces of short erotic fiction that you won’t want to put down.
This bound-to-blow-your-mind collection comes from both acclaimed writers and exceptionally hot newcomers from every corner of the world.
Like a Coming Wave: Oceanic Erotica by Andrea Trask (Ed)
The ocean is a vast playground of creatures real and imagined, rife with power and depth. Almost every culture has stories of sea creatures, from gods of water and wave to mermaids to selkies and even creatures still stranger. Many myths concern the meeting of this alien, watery world with the land, the intersection of foreign and known.
Each of these stories explores the sexual side of marine myths in a unique and unusual way. Mermaids and -men, selkies, Greek Gods, and even kraken cavort in these pages, featuring stories from Nisi Shawl, Julie Cox, Marie Carlson, Pepper Espinoza, and more, representing various sexualities and styles.
Best Erotic Romance 2013 by Kristina Wright (Ed)
So what happens with love meets sex? Erotic love is that delicious blend of hearts and minds and bodies, a combination of sweet and dirty, romantic and sexy. Sex by itself—hot, steamy, sensual sex—is one of the best things this life has to offer. But then, so is love. First love, new love, renewed love; love that has stood the test of time, love that has conquered every obstacles. It doesn’t matter if it’s a new relationship, such as Jeanette Grey’s yogo-bound characters in “Teach Me,” or a long-term relationship like Dominic Santi’s happily (and lusty) married couple in “Kiss of Peace”— the combination of sex and love is incendiary.
The collection is split between familiar authors and authors new to the genre. Best-selling author Kate Pearce delivers a scorching hot fantasy that takes place in a department store dressing room in "The Price of Love." Teresa Noelle Roberts has a sweetly erotic story about parents waiting for their adopted son in "Waiting for Ilya" and Geneva King's "Last Hundred Days" recounts the last hundred days between a divorcing couple.
