When I read the title 'The Best... 'of I usually become apprehensive, but, I decided to take the plunge and kick out the bucks to buy this book. What a disappointment!!
On reading the 30 short stories (can't believe I got through them all) many of them entail stories that must have been taken from 'The Best Gay Erotica' since it deals with boys doing what they do when they are alone. Matter of fact, sadly enough, the ONLY stories that were to any extent even slightly erotic were the 'boys will be boys' stories ...
In the first story 'Innocence in Extremis' we get 3 pages of a 28 year old virgin describing her frustrations with any relationship except her fingers.
The second story 'Space Girls are Easy' a young man is kidnapped by good looking green women with antenna that use manuals like 'The Whole Earth Catalogue' which also came with abduct-o-matic, and bind-a-bean tape and fasteners to hold down the earthlings they want to have sex with.
'The Maltese Dildo' is a story about a private detective finding a dildo that had a jewelled handle... it's a boy boy story that was aaahhhhemmmm penetratiing to say the least ..
'Triple X' is a story of a young girl in the South going to X rated theaters because it's the only place she could find AC. 'A hand rests on a swollen breast, thighs open like a bible' is about as erotic as this stupid story gets....LOL
'Sophies Smoke' is a hoot. This is a story about Sophie and a young man in a humidor closet doing things with cigars that would make Clinton proud.
'Calcutta' story of two boys in a steam room, nuf said OK ...
'S&M'A two page story of a girl wanting to be taken by the back door and be spanked. The story can't have more than 125 words for goodness sakes, I'm sure it was first written on a cocktail napkin!.

Bought this at the airport bookstore and couldn't stop reading -- shortest flight to London I've ever had. This book is sexy, serious, unusual, and funny all at the same time. There are some writers in here I'm not familiar with who have great style and voice, including Michelle Tea, Eva Morris and Susannah Indigo. Five stars.

What a fun, sexy, interesting book! Stories I've never heard before, ideas that will last, real stories with real sex -- it is beyond me how a book like "Harry Potter" can make the NYT bestseller list and a grown-up, fascinating book like this does not.
Bob Vickery's "Calcutta" about an encounter with a homeless, legless man is intense and unforgetable; Susannah Indigo's "Thief of Cocks" is a sexy riot; and Jess Wells' real-estate tale left me open to all _sorts_ of possibilities.

Format: Paperback
Yet another collection of so-called "Best" erotica that only seems to be the best in Susie Bright's opinion. To be fair, there might be one or two inclusions that are acceptable. However, it seems to me that this series has run its course several years back and should be given a rest. Where are the true artists of erotic writing? I see no excerpts from M.S. Valentine or Don Winslow or indeed, any recognizable names in the erotic literature field. Does Ms. Bright collect stories from her friends and neighbors? I think this is yet another prime example of overkill. I have loved and read erotica for 25 years and find nothing much positive to say about this book. I would instead recommend to those readers who like a variety of voices, check out Joyful Desires, A Compendium of Twentieth Century Erotica. It is money better spent.

Format: Paperback
This collection of erotica was very stimulating. There is something for everyone in this book. You will find yourself with a sexy grin on your face as your read from one story to another. Susie Bright has collected a very diverse collection of stories. I was glad to see that there were stories that involed different races and colors. It is hard to find well written erotic that involes all people. This book will make you want to widen your sexual horizons as you read along. You can always skip the few stories that are just to wild for you or are just not into. The only thing that I wish is that this book was on audio tape. Damn that would be good.

There can *never* be enough books like this. There were only two stories I didn't care for (the godawful virgin opening story & Bret Easton Ellis<gag>), but every single other story either made me laugh or touched my emotions or made me quite wet. Carry on with this series *forever*, Ms. Bright.

This one is fabulous. Susie Bright has outdone herself with this new edition. Great stories that I haven't seen anywhere else, fabulous editing and as always Ms Bright's introduction is a keeper that sets a wonderful tone for the whole book. Makes great bed time reading-- wish it was available on tape or CD. Made me want to go back and buy them all!

This book is sexy and packed full of interesting stories. I love the funny ones - the Thief of Cocks, the Motley Crue tale, and the sex for real estate story!
