Editorial Reviews

Review

"The cast of brazen characters featured in the this compilation of erotic short stories take on the sort of sexual adventures that most people only dream about. This is the perfect read for good girls who want to know what it's like to be bad!
Latina

"From the strictly sexual to the deeper, and sometimes darker, emotions that accompany sex, Fast Girls mines the range of human emotions. Blatant and unapologetically sexy, Fast Girls features some of the best voices in new erotica. From a communal shower to a kinky sex club, from myriad toys to strictly skin, these girls don’t say no or take it for an answer.

Editor Rachel Kramer Bussel defines fast as both wild and promiscuous, as according to Webster, but her selection of stories seeks something else, something deeper, not just stories of slut after slut, but stories of women who defy social norms, are bold and dynamic, with something to realize about sex and about themselves. The stories reflect what it is to be fast, being promiscuous and defying, both in states of mind as well as in states of motion. All of them speak to the reader on a deeper level as the women defy social conventions, raise eyebrows, and embrace what it is to be “fast.” Read it fast or slow, this anthology delivers."

Format: Paperback
"Erotica for women". That phrase usually causes me to pass a book by. I'm a guy through and through, and one stereotype on which I proudly stake claim is that my erotica has to be very visual and very descriptive! Would a book that states its "erotica for women" feed that need? In this case, YES. Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes! The stories in this collection are highly charged and they create that unmistakable `I'm getting horny' feeling. They're so good that you almost stop daydreaming about the stories, and start thinking about what it would be like to run into some of these writers!
`Temptation' is the perfect story to start off! I've always been of the mind that the best erotic stories are the ones where you can replace the characters in the story with yourself. In `Temptation'... I'd gladly trade my soul in this life AND the afterlife to be Miguel! Other stories that had me wishing I had Aladdin's lamp:

`Waxing Eloquent' - only in L.A. style loving.
`Winter, Summer' - sexy, shocking, with a surprise.
`Panther' - animalistic & sexy.
`Communal' - my second favorite story and if I could go back in time, I would live in a college dorm like this one.
`Flash' - title says it all.
`Confessions of a Kinky Shopaholic' - Sophie Kinsella eat your... ummm... heart out.
`Princess' - this story puts the "X" in taxi.
`Chasing Danger' - how far would you go to apprehend a criminal?
`Whore Complex' - OK Rachel... *whew*

Aside from writing goose bump causing erotica, Rachel can also pick the right stories to put in a book. I truly think you will be pleased with this current collection. If you aren't, check your pulse and call me. And one more thing... this is easily one of the sexiest covers I've seen in a while.

8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Emerald on August 30, 2010
Format: Paperback
I found working my way through _Fast Girls_ a delectable experience for more reasons than one. Sure, I had my personal favorite stories. It is not unusual for a story by Donna George Storey to be one of my favorites in any given anthology, and "Waxing Eloquent," with its nuanced subtlety intertwined with an almost surreal-seeming fantasy--pulled off, to me, with unquestionable aplomb--was no exception. I found "Winter, Summer," by Tristan Taormino truly mesmerizing. Since I have historically felt no sexual interest in women, a story with F/F sex in it that I find the slightest bit hot (certainly I can and have appreciated such stories in a literary sense, just not usually felt turned on by them) is one I find extraordinarily impressive--and "Winter, Summer" was one. I laughed out loud several times as I read "Married Life," experiencing it as shining with what I've found to be author Charlotte Stein's trademark charm and subtle humor. "Playing the Market," "Flash!," and "Princess" all had me panting.

But it wasn't just the heat of the stories, which I did experience consistently, that I appreciated about this book. It seems to me that regardless of how one personally experiences each story in this anthology, the genuine encompassing of heart, body, and mind is evident in all of them. This is erotica exemplary of what it has the potential to be: conveying sex as transcendence, sex as understanding, sex as connection, sex as art. Even if a story doesn't happen to reflect one's particular erotic sensibilities, arousal is just one of the ingredients these works have to offer. Some of the stories that didn't so much press my erotic buttons, if you will, stayed with me in other ways, impressing upon me something else or something bigger the way writing has the potential to do.

Format: Paperback
Fast Girls is an erotic novel that's 198 pages long with twenty stories inside (Amazon's page count is incorrect.) The book focuses entirely on the theme of strong women getting exactly what they want. While the word "fast girls" is usually slang for a negative term about women, Rachel Kramer Bussel takes it back by focusing this entire book on women who are strong-willed and go after whatever they want - whether it be a man, a hot experience, or sex toys.

There are a couple of less interesting stories, but honestly, I'd say that's only two of the twenty, and the rest of the stories are erotic. There were at least seven or eight amazingly erotic and engaging stories as well, so I really can't complain too much about the two I didn't like. Of course, with any erotic anthology, you are bound to not like one or two. That's the price you have to pay by making the book appeal to large audiences.

One of my favorites was "Married Life" by Charlotte Stein. In this story, a woman who has a very large sex drive is driven insane by the fact that her husband only desires sex about once a month. When she finds that he's been writing erotic in her spare time, she's aroused, angry, and amazed by the topic that he's writing about. Later on that night, she indulges him in the fetishes she writes about, and a new sex life for the two of them is about to begin. The author did a great job describing the plot while still making it really erotic. It's a longer story, but the entire story is really captivating, and you what to find out what is going to happen.

So overall? A very sexy compilation that you should certainly pick up. The book is intended for women because all of the stories are told from a female point of view (or third person point of view), but honestly, I could easily see any guy getting off on any of the stories included in this collection.
