Editorial Reviews

Review

"If you want a good book of erotica that focuses on bondage, kink, and power play, Best Bondage Erotica 2012 definitely delivers."
—Pop My Cherry Review

"This is a really great book full of really awesome kink. There is some spanking, some public humiliation, some total power exchange featured within. I highly recommend this book because I really enjoy a good bondage story whether the bondage is real or imagined. This book featured some very sexy players enjoying some very hot kink. I enjoyed the variety."
—Kissin Blue Karen

"If you’re looking to find some awesome authors, check this book out. If you’re wanting to read some hot bondage, this is the book you want. If you’re to explore this genre, this is your book.I found myself learning new things and enjoying old. These authors truly give you some of the best bondage erotica in 2012."
—Night Owl Reviews

"If you’re looking for good writing, powerful eroticism, and a delightful variety of approaches to the same theme, you won’t go far wrong with Best Bondage Erotica 2012."
—Erotic Readers and Writers Association

"Rachel Kramer Bussel ... returns with a collection of dark delights for those of us who take a walk on the wild side and those who want to venture there. ... The stories presented here are easily adapted to real life scenarios, so don't just think of it as a collection of well written erotica by some of the best writers of the genre; instead, think of it as an instruction manual—Intro to Bondage... Each story is carefully crafted to yank on our lusts (no pun intended—or perhaps it is) and I can imagine Bussel having a hard time selecting which to use. Collected here, however, are the best bondage erotica that the year has to offer."
—A Book Hunter's Journal

From the Back Cover

How Do You Want to Be Teased, Tied and Tantalized?

Whether you prefer a tough top with shiny handcuffs, the tug of rope on your skin, or the sound of your lover's command, Rachel Kramer Bussel serves your needs. Her Best Bondage Erotica 2012 imagines all the ways you can get your kink on with stories of spanking, corsetry, rubber, cross-dressing, handcuffs and BDSM play that push into new and exquisitely delightful territory. Helen Sedgwick's narrator is overcome by the unbearable intoxication of submission in "Cumaná," and a reluctant participant in Giselle Renarde's "Dry Rub" learns that the body never lies when it comes to pleasure. A dominant woman comes into her own erotic power in Teresa Noelle Roberts's "Suffer for Me," Shoshana Evers's intriguing "Melting Ice" is a lesson in anticipation and self-bondage. As Midori advises in her foreword, "Share this book with your lover...or lover-to-be."

With contributed stories by Shoshana Evers, Elizabeth Coldwell, Andrea Dale, A.R. Shannon, Lucy Felthouse, Salome Wilde, Elise Hepner, Kay Jaybee, Teresa Noelle Roberts, Giselle Renarde, Craig J. Sorensen, Elizabeth Silver, Billey Thorunn, Helen Sedgwick, Lana Fox, Tenille Brown, Kathleen Tudor, Valerie Alexander, Lolita Lopez, Neil Gavriel, and Rachel Kramer Bussel.

7 of 8 people found the following review helpful By dave94015 on December 31, 2011
Format: Paperback
Best Bondage Erotica 2012 is a collection of bondage-themed short stories by 21 authors. The majority of the stories are written from the female protagonist's point of view (POV). Readers can gain an insight into the woman's mind as she enters into bondage either by herself or with her partners (there is also one menage MMF story). Most of the bondage is light and involves ordinary rope (a few have no physical restraints). Most of the relationships in the story have casual BDSM elements. Most of the stories involve or end with sex.

There has been a criticism of the collection because the bdsm is predominantly female domination (Femdom) of mostly male partners (9 out of the 21 stories - see below), but there are only slightly fewer male domination stories (8/21). The bias, if there is any, is that the majority of the writers are women (even for a M/M story). In my opinion, the gender of the authors does not affect the quality or the themes of the stories. It just may happen that there are more women than men writers of bondage erotica. Some of the authors have made contributions to previous collections.

The other criticism of the book is that the bondage and bdsm is light and mostly rope bondage. Besides being an easily obtained bondage device, rope bondage takes time to apply. The writers have used the setup time to explore the feelings of both the dominant and submissive partners or the solitary individual in self-bondage. This is the strength of the collection: feelings about dominance and submission are explored, however briefly (because of the story length). The stories have an insight into how the characters entice or nudge their partners into the risky but arousing acts of bondage, and how it enhances the intimacy of their relationships.

The editor, Ms.

Format: Paperback
Rope lovers, rejoice! Bussel's well-chosen collection of bondage stories leans more to the tie-and-tease than to the whips and chains, giving bondage its moment in the spotlight, not just as the little sister of all-out BDSM. Several stories focus on the anticipation, danger, and sensuality of self-bondage, which makes for some wonderful "I could do that" fodder even for the unpartnered reader. There's a lot of well-described showing off to a lover that can't touch, also wonderful for putting yourself into the story. Power exchange stories include both fairly traditional Dom/sub dynamics and some good old-fashioned table-turning action. And much of the action occurs between well-established couples, making this a great collectionto read to a tied lover in your own bed! Especially hot for me were the stories "Laced", about goth boys playing corset dress-up, and Dry Rub, a hilarious little piece about a wife's revenge when her husband ditches her for his drinking buddies.

Format: Paperback
Handcuffs and rope and stockings, oh my! So many motivations, so many ways, so many implements of bondage are explored in this absolutely luscious anthology. It is honestly one of if not THE best erotica compilation I have read. As Midori points out in the Foreword of the book, bondage appeals to a "shockingly large segment of the population." I believe this to be true. I also believe that anyone with even a hint of curiosity about being tied up or doing the tying can find something in this book to arouse if not full on inspire them, whether that inspiration is towards action, or restraint-imposed inaction. This book boasts men and women tops and bottoms in almost every deliciously imaginable combination. A couple of women even top themselves.

Sometimes the purpose of binding here is to tease, sometimes to inflict that oh so good hurt, and sometimes just to get exactly what you want. There are stories like Salome Wilde's "The Spider and the Fly," "Laced" by Elizabeth Silver, and Kathleen Tudor's "Knot Alone" which focus largely on the bondage itself, while others use their ropes and cuffs, etc as simply a very satisfying means to an end. "Dry Rub" by Giselle Renarde is a prime example of this.
There are stories also that quite effectively explore the vulnerability and soul exposure that both lovers experience within the confines of bondage. My favorite of these was "Worth Redemption" in which Craig J Sorenson writes, "Your body opened wide like grand double doors to a temple."

Overall, the writing was really exceptional and I would like to share a sentence that particularly struck me from each story. There may be some ***SPOILERS*** in this section, so be warned.

Format: Paperback
Rachel Kramer Bussel - editor of books like Please, Sir and the upcoming, Best Sex Writing 2012 - returns with a collection of dark delights for those of us who take a walk on the wild side and those who want to venture there. Best Bondage Erotica 2012 is not for the faint of heart or the sensitive, but for those who want to add a little more spice into their lives. The stories presented here are easily adapted to real life scenarios, so don't just think of it as a collection of well written erotica by some of the best writers of the genre; instead, think of it as an instruction manual - Intro to Bondage.

In Teresa Noelle Roberts's "Suffer for Me," we learn that bondage isn't just rope and leather. That our restraints can be mental as well as physical. We also learn that being climatically controlled can cause the same yearning arousal that handcuffs and servitude bring. And best of all, it also teaches us to remember that tingling sensation of concentrated lust time and again.

In "Melting Ice," Shoshanna Evers informs us that a bondage fantasy doesn't have to have two people. A pair of handcuffs and an ice cube is all Amanda Scott needs to get rocks off.

Kay Jaybee pushes us further from just experimenting with the kinkier side of sex in "The Cupboard Under the Stairs," when a dominate invites someone else into their sex chamber.

And Elizabeth Silver brings in the gothier side of BDSM in "Laced," as a bartender sees a friend in a light he's never seen him before.

Each story is carefully crafted to yank on our lusts (no pun intended - or perhaps it is) and I can imagine Bussel having a hard time to select which to use. Collected here, however, are the best bondage erotica that the year has to offer. I'm on the edge to see what's in store for next year.
