In Bottoms Up, Bussel returns for the fourth time to spanking.
This anthology is one of the stronger anthologies in that genre, as well as being one of the stronger anthologies Bussel has edited. She has a good hand as an editor, and by now knows how to balance authors, themes, and story lengths.
I especially appreciated the diversity of authors in this anthology. The writing of erotic stories for publications in these anthologies is something that women seem to have colonized as their own. Openly male authors (I have no doubts that some men write under female pen names) are uncommon, but this anthology sports a significant minority of male writers.
So while you will find stories by stalwarts such as Alison Tyler and Sommer Marsden (two of the best stories in the anthology, in this reviewers opinion), you will also find stories here by Simon Sheppard, Craig J Sorensen and other male writers as well.
The subthemes in spanked run the gamut. We get stories from both sides of the hand or paddle, and stories range from the mostly cerebral to the delightfully and painfully *sharp*. The stories never felt repetitious.
About the only thing I can say about the book is that at 20 stories and 172 pages, its just a tiny bit short, for the price you pay.
If you are a fan of erotic stories, and the theme of spanking is at all interesting to you, I think you will enjoy Bottoms up.
My absolute favorite story was "The Purple Balloon" by Tess Danesi. What I liked about this story was not only was it hot, but that it took a party favor and made it into a very unlikely sex object. Teresa Noelle Roberts does something similar in "Prime Time," making, of all things, math an intrinsic part of a sex session.
If you enjoy a little humor with your erotica, which I do, then be sure not to miss "Lonnie's Licks." You won't know whether to laugh or to, well, you know. The author, Tenille Brown, sure has a way with dialogue. I look forward to seeing more from her.
"A Firm Understanding" by Elizabeth Coldwell was another very original tale, where a woman gets her kicks by seeing her husband with another man. Great outside the box thinking, if you'll pardon my pun.
Bottom line: If you like spanking and original, well-written erotica, be sure to get this book. Just don't read it in public.
Then again, maybe do.
Whenever I sat down to read one of the stories(which I usually consumed three or four at a time)I was instantly sliding into the skin of someone who lived for the rush of being spanked.
I'm hard pressed to select any favorites from the table of contents, but I can say without a doubt The Purple Balloon by Tess Danesi was exquisite and I've read it over and over.
Even if spanking isn't your thing I urge you to give this anthology a try. It makes for a sexy, hot, amazing vacation from normal life!
Tess Danesi's "The Purple Balloon" is a particular fave. Danesi crawls inside the mind of a spanking enthusiast and rolls around in there getting dirty. This story is best read aloud to a partner. (Guaranteed sex will follow...)
RKB favorites like Alison Tyler, Stan Kent, Gwen Masters (spanking in a church?!), and Teresa Noelle Roberts lend their erotic voices to the spanking brigade. Jerry Arthur's "Ass Worship" is a must-read -- I've read it three times (so far).
There's something in here for everyone; I give it two enthusiastic thumbs up.

Rachel Kramer Bussel is one of the best spanking fiction writers. Her stories are fresh, original, exciting and arousing. I have many of her books and plan on getting more.Published on January 31, 2013 by Ted
Nothing to OVER the top with this book...but it wasn't all horribly bad either. I think that I just wanted a little bit more umph in it, or perhaps a few extra twists or something. Read morePublished on December 14, 2011 by Destiny
I bought both of Bussel's books, and neither one of them has a story worth printing.
I can't believe in 20+ stories there's not one of them that's any good at all. Read more
