Introduction: Made for Sex

Hotel rooms are, in a word, hot. The minute I enter one, I want to strip off all my clothes and dive naked between the sheets, whether I have a lover there to share in the indulgence with me or not. Much more so than my own bed, hotel beds make me horny. They are, or at least, seem to me, to be made for sex.

Hotels give us the chance to unwind, relax, and, if we choose, become someone else. Behind closed doors, we are free to frolic, fuck, and flaunt ourselves. It doesn't matter whether the hotel is in a faraway land or in your own hometown; the point is, it's a clean slate. It's not your home filled with all the reminders of what you could or should be doing. Other people have fucked and will fuck in the bed you're about to sleep in; that can be a turn-on in and of itself. It's your borrowed space, for an hour, a day, a night, or longer, and in that time, you can claim it, control it, use it for your own naughty purposes. Other guests are prowling the hotel, checking in, checking out, banging and getting banged against the wall. There's a sense that anything can happen--and quite often, it does.

To me, the anonymity of hotel rooms, their personality wiped clean with each new guest, is part of their appeal. They beckon us with their welcoming ways. They offer an escape from the everyday, a chance to let loose and become someone else. In Do Not Disturb, I wanted to capture the ways hotels fit into our erotic imagination, whether they're a necessity or a luxury. Hotels let us explore parts of our passion that get left behind in the rush of daily life.

The authors whose work you are about to read understand perfectly the allure of a fresh hotel room—or a hotel lobby. Indeed, the entire atmosphere a hotel offers can simply scream of sex. This goes for five-star and by-the-hour joints. They each have something to add, and here you'll find romps between lovers and strangers, reunions and quickies, as these characters indulge in their new settings.

Many of the characters here use hotels for secrecy, relying on the unspoken code of employees to never share what goes on. Others use them for flirting, for catching their prey. Many need a hotel room in order to engage in an affair or a roleplay. Whether exploring Japan's love hotels in Isabelle Gray's "So Simple a Place" or getting "A Room at the Grand" for a very special callgirl, the men and women you'll read about get off on their surroundings. The hotel itself becomes a player in their affair, a sign of the lengths they'll go to be together.

And this book wouldn't be complete without some extramarital affairs that can only happen in hotel rooms, like the lovers in Lisabet Sarai's "Reunion" or Gwen Masters's "Memphis." For these characters, the hotel room takes on added meaning for it is an ever-changing venue where their relationships grow, where they can savor each other's bodies without their spouses knowing, or so they hope.

Hotel rooms are also perfect for quickies, those fast fucks that you only need an hour or so for, made all the more arousing for their brevity. In Saskia Walker's "The Lunch Break," a sultry waitress pounces on a diner, and in my "Hump Day," a couple shed their business personae once a week to become the kind of people they could never be (or fuck) at home.

Even in the more innocent stories here, the vacation sex, the getaways among couples, there's something just a little clandestine about these hotel room hookups. That air of perversion is what makes getting serviced in a hotel (or motel) infinitely sweeter than doing it anywhere else. It's a private way of being an exhibitionist, of leaving the staff and fellow guests guessing (or parading around in your hotel robes). Sometimes it's a neighbor who'll lure you from the safety of your relationship, such as the lesbian who teaches Madlyn March's protagonist a thing or two in "Heart-Shaped Holes," or the way Elizabeth Coldwell's fellow jurors wind up relieving some tension in between trial time.

There's a hotel in New York, the Library Hotel, that has long intrigued me. They offer an Erotica Suite, filled with strawberries, whipped cream, red roses, erotic dice, Mionetto Presecca, edible honey dust, and a Kama Sutra pocket guide. They're upfront in their intention that you truly savor their package, as well as your lover's. I've never stayed there, or done more than pass by. In some ways, I prefer to keep its beauty safely tucked away in my imagination, the kind of room I'd use with a rich lover from out of town who'd seduce me with his or her accent, whisper to me in a foreign tongue before taking that foreign tongue and licking me all over. That's another thing about hotel rooms: they are perfect to fantasize about. In them, and in your dreams about them, you can have any kind of sex with anyone (or everyone) you want.

I can tell you that the sex I've had in hotel rooms has been some of the hottest of my life. I get off on knowing that neighbors may hear me, and in fact, that brings out the exhibitionist in me. The sexiest porn director I know took me to his hotel room in Manhattan one night and while his porn star girlfriend was elsewhere, we indulged in one of the most dirty, powerful, delicious fucks I've ever had, and when he came all over my chest, I reveled in it. I didn't wash it off, either, but proudly let it dry on my skin and couldn't stop the smile that found its way to my lips as I took the subway home.

Once, in some random seedy L.A. hotel, another lover and I hadn't brought any condoms, and instead had to make do with a paddle and a butt plugæpoor us. In a seedy Midtown motel, I spent a few hours romping with a very sexy young man who showed me all kinds of ways I could twist my body to extend my pleasure, then felt a shocked, naughty thrill as he entered the bathroom while I peed and watched me before dipping his fingers into the stream. Something I likely wouldn't have allowed at home became acceptable in a place I'd likely never find myself again. And when I'm in a hotel room by myself, tucked away under the sheets, I feel naughty and decadent, even if the only party guests I'm hosting are my fingers and my pussy.

While I doubt hotels are going to be stocking this book in their dresser drawers alongside The Bible, I hope that it finds its way into hotel romps. I picture lovers reading aloud to one another as they get ready to mark their hotel room, or in the afterglow, perhaps leaving it behind for the next lucky guest. I hope hotel staff spirit it away and read it during their downtime. I hope the next time you enter a hotel lobby, even if you have no intention of getting busy with anyone you may find there, that you'll at least notice the many erotic possibilities that greet you.

My most recent hotel rendezvous was at the ultra-fancy art-filled Chambers Hotel in Minneapolis. I was staying by myself for two nights, and while I didn't share my bed, the room itself beckoned to me. I found myself getting horny as I dove between the covers, wishing I had a lover to share my good fortune with. Now I have this book, which I hope you'll take with you on your travels, perhaps read it while lounging in a hotel lobby, or whisper from it into your lover's ear before you make so much noise in your hotel room bed that someone calls security. However and wherever you read this book, I hope it turns you on as much as it does me.

Format: Paperback
I'm amazingly impressed. I've read tons of erotic anthologies like this one, and this is the only one to be downright erotic and sometimes just a great read. All of the stories focus on sex in hotels, but unlike other novels, Rachel chose to use some amazing stories in this anthology. For example, we actually get to read a story about a girl with OCD and her husband where they try to escape to hotel rooms to avoid the germs so they can actively have sex. Or we read a story about a woman who, after being nagged by her boyfriend, agrees to have a threesome with another women, but once the two women start, they completely ignore the guy after he starts acting like an idiot, and instead, we get to focus on the two girls' pleasures. Overall, an amazingly collection that has tugged my emotions all the way from "aww" to aroused. I'm amazingly, amazingly impressed.

Knock knock knock. Not now, I'm busy. I'm trying to read.
Can't you see the sign hanging on the doorknob?


Well, if you're reading "Do Not Disturb: Hotel Sex Stories", edited by Rachel Kramer Bussel, you might not want to be interrupted, but you won't be falling asleep, especially if you're not alone. These twenty stories will have you itching to pack your bags. Bring a friend, or meet one. Or a stranger for that matter.

All the stories are first class, though like hotel stays, they're all different. Here's some that I especially enjoyed.

Maxim Jakubowski's "G Is for Gypsy" is delightfully melancholy. A man who travels a lot has been given a room with memories. "So, here I sit in room 411 of the Palace Hotel. I am naked. I am pitiful." Oh, but he's not watching the Discovery Channel.

In Kristina Wright's "The Other Woman", a guy's ménage a trois fantasy birthday request has an wonderfully unexpected outcome. "Oh, hon, don't thank me. You are delicious."

Tess Danesi's "The Royalton - A Daray Tale" has us following right along with the directions. "5) At 5:00, put on the blindfold, put a set of handcuffs around both wrists, and secure your left arm to the back rail of the chair. Wait." Nobody is disappointed.

"Reunion" is Lisabet Sarai's masterful tale of long-time lovers meeting up for some quality time together after a few years separation. "I'll get you whipped into shape in no time."

There's so many more rooms to explore - you can get "Tightly Tucked" (Alison Tyler), enjoy some "Room Service" (Donna George Storey), spend "Hump Day" (Rachel Kramer Bussel) or "The Lunch Break" (Saskia Walker). "It's So Simple a Place" (Isabelle Gray) for "Talking Dirty" (Shanna Germain). Oh, and so much more.

Okay, okay. I'm done - you can come in now.

Format: Paperback
Often when you read a collection of themed erotica, you find that the stories focus much more on the theme (such as politics or science) than on the sex. While the theme may be interesting, you're often left unsatisfied by the erotic nature of the stories. In Do Not Disturb, Rachel Kramer Bussel has taken a theme that is almost synonymous with sex and added more sex. It works out beautifully. All of the stories have the cohesive hotel setting, but each explores it in a unique and very erotic way. As with any collection, a few of the stories didn't do much for me, but most of the adventures in this book were hot enough to make me read one-handed. A few of them even gave me a few naughty ideas to try out. Do Not Disturb is one of the better erotic collections out there, and possibly the best themed collection I've read yet.

This had some variety and spice, which is the best part of an anthology collection. I'd recommend it. Would be really fun to have this on hand if you are actually staying in a hotel!

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Alisandra on March 22, 2009
Format: Paperback
Rachel Kramer Bussel writes in her introduction that she hopes the reader will take this collection of erotica on his or her next travel adventure. I agree that "Do Not Disturb" should be a must have in your suitcase, whether traveling alone or with a partner. Rachel Kramer Bussel has selected a great collection of stories. I look forward to re-reading many of these stories from under hotel sheets, on a hotel balcony overlooking the beach, or in a hotel lobby with a cocktail.

The book has a range of stories about affairs, threesomes, one-night stands, and fantasies all set in hotel rooms, lobbies, bars, and pools. Some, like Tess Danesi's "The Royalton -- A Daray Tale," will inspire naughty and titillating sex games of your own. And others, like "The Other Woman" by Kristina Wright and "An Honest Woman" by Tenille Brown have strong character development that keep you intrigued about the stories end and beyond.

"Talking Dirty" by Shanna Germain is exceptionally good. To give a summary would ruin the suspense. The title made me think about raunchy phone sex, but the story is about a whole other kind of dirty. The story is honest, sexy, romantic, and different from any erotica I have ever read.

After you book your next hotel, or before, purchase this book.

Format: Kindle Edition
I totally agree with the author's foreword. Anyway we look at it, hotels and motels will always mean sex. Even alone or with someone. You may not totally agree with me but it is what it is. The stories on this book is like a collection of the various, possibly reality based sex adventures that are going on these establishments. I got interested with its variation, from conventional to even, realistic. After reading See Through Clothes: Naughty Ways to Break the Ice to this, my erotic moments and excitements are complete. A good erotica book.
