Editorial Reviews

Review

This book is a wonderful collection of sexually ambitious short stories from some of the top female authors in the erotica genre. --Portland Book Review

Unapologetic for its explicit tales of lust and fantasy. At times shocking and risqué, in Best Women's Erotica 2011 readers will find themselves awash in corporally rich and emotionally authentic stories. --Examiner

From the Author

This 2011 edition of Best Women's Erotica is stylish, coy, slick with gloss, and stiletto-sharp. Stories sent to me when I post a "call for submissions" arrive in the hundreds from all over the world, but in my ten years of editing erotica, the stories always tell me what's going on out there in women's heads about sex. 
 
This year every single story is layered top to toe with explicit sex, hard and wet and mean and sweet, flowing around love, and fused with characters who finally feel like us. What women want: with no apologies. 
 
A girl squeezed into a tight uniform has her first day on the job serving ice cream to workmen -- with no small amount of irony (or arousal) about her presentation. A group of girls dare to see what it's like in the male-only arena of a triple-X movie theater. 
 
A businesswoman orders spa service to her hotel room as a splurge, only to be confronted by two male masseuses who then compete to see who can give her the most physical pleasure to win the payment. A woman turns the humiliation of an ex-boyfriend exposing a naked picture of her to the world into her own private game.
 
There is so much more. I'm so proud to work with this outrageously talented authors. Enjoy their adventures of their sexual heroines.

Format: Paperback
Plot Summary: This erotic collection written by women, for women, contains 19 stories ranging from sexy to kinky and everything in between.

My primary thought after finishing Best Women's Erotica 2011 is that it's filled with fetishes. I can guarantee that there's at least one story in here for everyone, but with that grand-sounding promise comes my regret that several of the stories did not please me. To put it another way, I love to visit Baskin Robbins for ice cream, but that doesn't mean I want to have a bite of every flavor in the house. I wanted chocolate and strawberries, and what I got was a lot of weird, fruity flavors that were interesting but not the sort of thing I'd want to consume beyond that initial taste.

Even though some of these stories did not turn me on, they were all beautifully written, without exception. I have yet to read a collection by editor Violet Blue (Just Watch Me: Erotica for Women) that fails to impress me in terms of the storytelling and the sex, but this one didn't have much romance. I don't expect to find all that many sweetheart stories in such a wide-ranging collection, but I was disappointed by the utter lack of softness (with one exception - I adored "Abigail's Ice Cream" by Janine Ashbless). The overriding theme of this collection is defiance, and it was embodied in story after story about women who were brave, and aggressive, and bold in their sexual encounters. They asked, no demanded, to have sex their way, and while it was kind of exciting to read, it was also a bit overwhelming for me.

Whilst some of the stories had elements that were appealing, I feel as though most of the writing was a bit sloppy and probably geared more towards the Gen Y crowd.. I am Gen X. Would not really call this literature, more like pop rocks. By now means terrible, though.

Not what I expected! I like more intrigue with a better plot & story line. Women are like men in that the chase is the most exciting.

Don't waste your money. The stories in here are garbage. They don't any real plot or dramatic plots at That. A bunch of people got together to submit their 2nd draft essay stories and call them the best. Its like watching amateur porn...what's the point.
