Best Women’s Erotica 2015
Edited by: Violet Blue
Published by: Cleis Press (2014)
The ever amazing Violet Blue has outdone herself again, proving that variety really is the spice of life. This anthology contains eighteen erotic short stories with a diverse cast of characters. The individual stories are short enough to be read in one sitting, making it a great nightly read. I, however, read the entire book in two sittings because I couldn’t put it down.
I thoroughly enjoyed this anthology. Gay, straight, bi, or otherwise, you will find something here to get your juices flowing. I will note that the main character in each story is a female, presumably since it is titled Best Women’s Erotica 2015.
My favorite story was “Click-Click-Click” by Annabeth Leong. The combination of the intimate connection, the voyeuristic journey, and the handsome stranger who becomes part of the show was enough to keep me quite captivated.
The stories included in Best Women’s Erotica 2015 are “The Ghostwriter” by Valerie Alexander, “Roxanne” by Tasmin Flowers, “Click-Click-Click” by Annabeth Leong, “Star Fucker” by Malin James, “The Art Teacher” by Rachel Woe, “Gwendolyn and Mario Go to Philadelphia” by Gwendolyn Kansen, “Accidental Transmission” by Beatrix Ellroy, “Groped” by Lana Fox, “Postcards from Paris” by Giselle Renarde, “Magic Tricks” by Sue Lenee Cix, “The Kissing Party” by Rachel Kramer Bussel, “A Not-So-Subtle Spice”, by Alison Tyler, “Tryst of Fate” by Lydia Hill, “Triplet Trouble” by JT Louder, “The Unrequited Orgasm” by Dani Bauter, “The Dancer” by Evey Brett, “More Light” by Laila Blake, and “The Seven Ravens” by Ariel Graham.
Exclusive Excerpt from “The Ghostwriter” by Valerie Alexander, part of the anthology Best Women’s Erotica 2015 edited by Violet Blue
“It’s irresistible when someone knows what you want before you do,” he said. “You wonder what else they know about you. They become your sexual oracle.”
“Did she? Know what else you wanted, I mean?”
“Of course. The first time she tied me up, I thought I would explode. The absolute powerlessness and fighting her authority— then succumbing to my own need for that powerlessness, which is the true humiliation.”
Recognition flooded my face in a warm blush. I tilted my head so that my hair covered my cheeks.
“I see that’s how it is for you,” he said.
I laughed nervously. My legs felt weak and my underwear was wet.
“I’ll show you.”
My stomach dropped as he rose and walked around the conference table. Against every professional code, he was going to take control of me and use me, just like I’d been hoping and dreading. I watched as he removed black nylon rope from his suit pockets and tied my wrists to the arms of the swivel chair.
“You look fetching like that,” he said. “But overdressed.”
He unbuttoned my pin-striped blouse and pushed the lace cups of my bra under my nipples. Then he gathered my loose brown hair behind my shoulders, to put me properly topless on display.
And then, to my immense disappointment, he walked back to his seat.
“I can’t write like this,” I said, hoping to be punished for complaining.
“You don’t need to write,” he said. “It’s all being recorded. You need to listen.”
I shifted restlessly against the ropes. But he only went into a story about his first major business deal before yawning abruptly and looking at his watch. “I have a meeting uptown.”
Before untying me, he slid his hands over my breasts. “From now on, you’ll be tied up while I dictate,” he said, “and you’ll transcribe the recording later.”
