The 2003 collection is a more balanced mix of stories, that will appeal to sexual-thinking women of every persuasion. The anthology opens with a bang. "Betty" by Ann Dulaney is one of the standout stories -- a beautifully written story that would shine in any short story collection. There are the usual standard-fodder down-and-dirty dildo stories that seem to be pervasive in modern erotica these days, and Sheiner's darker side emerges in stories such as "Bad Girl", with its suggestions of incest.
But this year's collection, with its subtle edge of sadness, has some evocative writing. For me, stand out stories were "Plain Women" by Lisa Prosimo, with its refrain of insecurity and tender loving, and "Kamini's Story" by Cheyenne Blue, a haunting, beautifully written tale of loss of virginity, that still sizzled off the page. And who will forget "Man and Woman: A Study in Black and Write", an inter-racial story of hot sex, fantasy, and stereotypes.
Women who love women are not ignored. Rachel Kramer Bussel contributes "Lap Dance Lust", a hot and sexy story about a dyke in a men's lap dance club. And Zonna's "What You're In For", a story about powerplay in prison.
Overall, a thumbs up for this collection. I was certainly delighted to get it in my christmas stocking!

Excellent writing and terrific story-telling. It's clear from this volume that women really trump men in sensual, to-the-core descriptions of the sexual experience.Published on January 12, 2005 by Angela Buonfiglio

I'm generally not an erotica fan but borrowed the book from my wife. Some of the stories were stereotypical erotica, but a lot of them surprised me. Read morePublished on April 19, 2003

I've liked these books in the past, but this one fails to inform or entertain. It's not terribly awful, just not very good. Read morePublished on January 4, 2003
Erotica by women for women! It's about time! I really enjoyed this year's collection -- some stories are poignant, some are silly and all are fun. Read morePublished on December 25, 2002
This is my second time buying Sheiner's collection and the second time I've loved it. Recommend to all.Published on December 21, 2002
I have to agree with the "dud" comment, because I got a copy of this and thought the stories were either dull or of amateur quality. Read morePublished on December 12, 2002
The 2003 book is a real dud, full of poor writing and dumb stories. None of it resembles the best of anything - avoid.Published on November 27, 2002
