Midwest Book Review
"Once of the main things I liked about this erotic collection was the fact that it is so unique. It’s very difficult to find any BDSM book that focuses on lesbians only, and that’s exactly what this book did. The book includes a lot of women strapping on cocks/dildos, but the book is focused on the power exchange between the two females as well as the kink and BDSM. Again, though, the power exchange is the biggest feature in most of the stories, and the bottom submits quite freely while the top takes the power and uses it for deliciously kinky things."
Pop My Cherry Reviews
"The writers in Say Please aren't afraid to get dirty. Although Dusty Horn's narrator is referring to her unpolished boots, hot lines like "When you see me filthy, you know I mean it" are just dripping with innuendo and vulgar promises. And she makes good. As I turned the final page, I melodramatically went into mourning. Say Please had me practically begging for more. It got me saying please. I bet it'll get you too."
"Definitely one of the best anthologies I’ve read, overall content quality was superb. The anthology is heavy with butch/femme characters, which I’d expected so I was happy to see a butch-butch pairing and gender binary non-conforming characters as well. I’m hoping to see these kinds of characters become more common in queer erotica, partly because I think its great to expose the erotica reading public to experiences and desires of transgressive people. But Say Please is more than a collection of hot sex scenes. No really. Great depictions of realistic D/s, with negotiation and communication and respect aspects of D/s that are vital to mutually satisfying experiences. Consent is Sexy! Pass it on "
"Whether you're a super-kinky mofo or just window shopping in the world of bondage erotica, there is something for everyone in this book. And as an unapologetic intellectual elitist, let me take this moment to assure you that the writing is top-notch. Gone are those old teenage days of sneaking naughty queer books out of the library only to get home and realize they all suck (and not in the good way)."
From the Back Cover
Say the magic word and fulfill your deepest desires for discipline and surrender, domination and submission, and the heightened sensations of BDSM play. One request opens up a fantasy world of classic dungeon scenes, bondage and restraint, floggers and spankings, sadism and masochism, very hot sex and so much more. True to form, Sexsmith queers classic gender dynamics, with a femme daddy in Alysia Angel's "Feathers Have Weight," and genderqueer bois who earn their right to flag black in Sassafras Lowrey's "Black Hanky." In "The Cruelest Kind," Kiki DeLovely's naughty narrator gets her just desserts from her butch in a back alley. D.L. King's top makes her submissive strip before an unseen audience in "A Public Spectacle." Face slapping can be a hard limit or the most delicious craving, as Rachel Kramer Bussel's protagonist finds out in "A Slap in the Face." Whether you dream of surrendering to a lover or of weilding your power, Say Please to the erotic inspiration within.
