Review



"It’s Orgasmic indeed. Some of these stories sent me straight to the moon, and then I drifted back down to earth only to take off again on the next page. After I finished this book it occurred to me that I’ve never read anything that focuses so wholly on female satisfaction. I think men tend to steal the limelight since they express arousal and orgasm in such a visual fashion. Women know how to hide it and fake it like pros, and sometimes that works against us, because our bodies are not simple to decipher, and oh! the frustration when we desperately want someone to break our code and read us like a book. That happens in Orgasmic, and it’s a glorious experience."
—Dirty Sexy Books


"As usual, Rachel Kramer Bussel chose stories for Orgasmic
that shock, disturb, and make you think, all while inevitably arousing you."


--Kerry Cohen, author of Loose Girl

It's Time to start reading the book again!
Beth Rogers
This doesn't seem like a particularly original or dynamic idea for a collection, but it is pulled off extremely well.
Zak
Short stories move well and keep your interest.

Format: Paperback
Plot Summary: "Orgasmic: Erotica for Women" has twenty-five stories in a little over 200 pages, and they all focus on one thing - orgasm from the female perspective. With infinite variety and endless creativity, the women in these stories find THE ultimate satisfaction with their long-time lovers, new partners, or illicit assignations. Some women like to be dominated, and some like to be in the saddle (literally). It's a stunning collection that lavishes all of its attention on women and the ways they come.

It's "Orgasmic" indeed. Some of these stories sent me straight to the moon, and then I drifted back down to earth only to take off again on the next page. After I finished this book it occurred to me that I've never read anything that focuses so wholly on female satisfaction. I think men tend to steal the limelight since they express arousal and orgasm in such a visual fashion. Women know how to hide it and fake it like pros, and sometimes that works against us, because our bodies are not simple to decipher, and oh! the frustration when we desperately want someone to break our code and read us like a book. That happens in "Orgasmic," and it's a glorious experience.

"Chemistry" by Velvet Moore starts with the line, "The smell of science makes me horny." After reading about what happens to a hospital administrator in a laboratory, I can certainly understand why. The heroine in "Seeing Stars" by Louisa Harte suffers on a camping trip until she learns that exposing herself in nature can draw forth her primitive side, and every soft breeze or cool drop of rain is a sensory explosion while making love under the stars. Another couple has stealth sex in a public place while watching a lunar eclipse in "Moon Tantra" by Teresa Noelle Roberts.

14 of 17 people found the following review helpful By Robert T Bakie on August 29, 2010
Format: Paperback
It took me some time to properly absorb this one. With most of the books Rachel edits, I tend to run pell-mell through them, mentally bookmarking my favorite stories and then impatiently drumming my fingers, waiting for the next collection. This one was a bit slower to take in. Is it less visceral? No, not really. Is it that I'm a guy and the collection is ostensibly aimed toward women? Maybe a little, as each story is told from the woman's perspective, but I don't think that that makes it any less powerful as a collection. I guess this collection just lends itself to savoring and slow-burn more than pell-mell running, and that's just fine.

As always with Rachel's collections, it's easy to pull some favorite stories out:

In "Frosting First," by Lana Fox, an encounter that turns into a mixture of culinary delights and secretive(?) exhibitionism sets the stage (table) for future fun.

In "All She Wanted," by Andrea Dale, a pregnant sub and her dom husband find a way to safely and delightedly get their kink on, when they add a friend and switch the roles around.

In "The Waiting Game," by Elizabeth Coldwell, a holiday cottage, terrible weather and an unreliable deck of cards create a "perfect storm" of erotic anticipation.

In "The Chair," by Lolita Lopez, a submissive woman finds delight in a specialized chair and the ministrations and "punishment" of her inventive lover.

And, as you might expect form one who edits so many great collections, Rachel's own "The Belt," about a woman and her need for a worn leather belt and the man who skillfully wields it, is also a standout of this anthology.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Erotic Elf on August 7, 2010
Format: Paperback
The title of this book is an adjective that applies to most good erotica; and yet, with the present collection, Rachel Kramer Bussel brings a special focus to this large-looming aspect of the erotic experience. Whether climax is at the forefront of the protagonist's mind or is simply a magnificent force that arrives without discussion, each of these intensely enrapturing stories gives itself over, in its own way, to a crescendo that not only takes center stage but engulfs the audience.

Sylvia Lowry's "Old Faithful" is an intricately evocative period piece in which details such as a postcard and an album cover are masterfully used to help ratchet up the tension and then propel the situation toward release. In "The Big O," by Donna George Storey, a lonely exploration of technique becomes a transcendent, empowering, revelatory experience that straddles fantasy and reality, self-pleasure and shared pleasure. "Moon Tantra" celebrates the potential in self-paced, eked out, slow-motion sex; author Teresa Noelle Roberts drives the lesson home with beautiful sensuality. Louisa Harte's "Seeing Stars" and Heidi Champa's "Rise and Shine" most definitely live up to the promise of their titles, and erotic imaginations like those of Neve Black, Justine Elyot, and Charlotte Stein show us, in their individual palettes of fireworks colors, how women find their fulfillment in countless ways, and claim it in countless voices.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Penny Mykels on October 24, 2010
Format: Paperback
Stolen moments, voyeurism and fantasies galore.. Orgasmic, has it all. From a fifties era vacuum cleaner salesman to a sculpture artist to equestrian analogies, Rachel even surprises us by including a bit of religious piety in the virginal story of finding god within the joy and passion of first time sex.

The Chair by Lolita Lopez is an exquisitely detailed look into the world of D/s.

Share by Dusty Horn.. This testosterone filled story is so hot in the way only a female could describe!

Paying it Forward by Kendra Wayne comes across as a most lovely bit of tutorial written as a dreamy reminiscence.

All she Wanted ... Oh, how the intense cravings of need the main character felt, jumped right off the page and into my loins. We've all felt desires for something forbidden to us and the story telling by Andrea Dale painted her crystal clear yearnings. This was my favorite of the anthology.

Then we have Rachel's own Belted. An intimately detailed, take you along for the ride emotional description of S/M needs. Dark feelings brazenly revealed for all to bear witness. Bravo, Rachel ... bravo!
