Review

"Celebrating sexual power is what it's all about...those who know how to give and receive ultimate sexual pleasure through domination are the stars in these steamy tales...buy(ing) them together to get the ultimate view from the top." -- Penthouse Forum, Guilty Pleasures, July 2007

Explorations of dominants and their relationships with those who submit to them are also on display in....She's On Top...the tops here do it because they are with someone who understands, trusts and (more often than not) loves them. She's On Top has the dommes taking centre stage, and offers up such treasts as Tara Alton's Pinch, where a woman has a surprisingly kinky encounter in her office lift, Noelle Keely's Ottoman Empress, in which the heroine discovers how satisfying it is to use her yoga-loving husband as a footstool and Kate Dominic's The Queening Chair, which can only be described as a cunnilingus apocalypse. Truly a pair of masterful anthologies. -- Forum UK Vol. 1 Issue No. 8

Rachel Kramer Bussel does an excellent job in selecting hot, unique stories with oomph. By "oomph," I mean that these are the kinds of stories that you will remember after you finish reading them. You'll remember them after you've removed your slippery fingers from your own personal panties (or shorts), put away your toys and gone back to your lives. These are sex-stories that you'll keep thinking about long after the orgasm has passed -- Jane's Guide April 2007

Rachel Kramer Bussel's done it again; brought us a delightful collection of slightly twisted, but always hot little stories. These companion books delve into the shadows of Dominance and submission from both a male and female point of view...Part of living these types of lifestyles is admitting to yourself that you want it, then accepting the role you choose; blissful submission or the responsibility of controlling the scene. Whether you're exploring, confirming, or expanding your interest in Domination and submission, you will find that Rachel Kramer Bussel has assembled quite the collection of pieces from some very well-known and downright dirty authors. -- Cleansheets May 2007

She's on Top, Rachel Kramer Bussel's latest collection of 18 tantalising tales, introduces the reader to women who wield, damsels who dominate and babes who were born to bully. Donna George Storey, "Suit and Tie," begins the anthology with her trademark brand of hard-hitting panache and style. A single-minded protagonist; an easily manipulated boss; and a story that's hot enough to melt icecaps. Debra Hyde, "By a Firm Hand," gives a gloriously gratuitous glimpse into the marital bliss that can only come when a committed disciplinarian weds a not-too reluctant sub. Saskia Walker, as stimulating and wicked as always with "Inner Vixen," shows how one woman discovers her dominant nature and learns to use it to best effect -- Erotica Readers & Writers Association

A collection of female domination stories that women (and men) can actually read without rolling their eyes!
Ally
Rachel Kramer Bussel uses her editor's talents (yet again) to piece together a great collection of stories about female dominance in "She's on Top."
Flora Fling
Set in London in 1890, the story is a small masterpiece of erotic surprises in which a young woman is proposed to by an earnest young gentleman.

Format: Paperback
She's On Top is a collection of stories showcasing women in a dominant erotic role with men as their subservients. Despite great advancements in

our social development, our culture is still permeated with sexism and misogyny. That being the case, a book of stories about women taking the lead in the bedroom (and elsewhere) is a refreshing treat. The collection sizzles with promise and potential and fulfills it all in a big way. Much credit to editor Rachel Kramer Bussel for assembling such a fantastic group of stories.

Among my favorites:

Saskia Walker's "The Inner Vixen" describes a very private encounter that unfolds in a very public place. A submissive man senses the

heroine's long to dominate even before she does, and guides her with himself as the offering on the altar of her superiority. With his help, she sheds her chrysalis of conventionality and becomes a radiant (and

whip-wielding) butterfly.

"Working Late" by Andrea Dale is an extremely hot story about sex over webcams that ends with a mind-blowing twist worthy of The Twilight Zone.

The editor's own "His Just Rewards" shows a heroine who can't physically

overpower her larger, stronger partner but more than compensates with

intelligence, erotic cunning and sheer force of will.

"Room 2201" by N.T. Morley explores just how far a man will go to prove

his subservience to his domme. He consents to being ravaged by another man purely so she can have the pleasure of watching.

Teresa Noelle Roberts' "Mark of Ownership" is a wistfully poignant tale of

two lovers who must part and never see each other again - and gives new erotic meaning to the phrase "something to remember me by".

Yay! A collection of female domination stories that women (and men) can actually read without rolling their eyes! As a woman who likes to be "on top," I'm always in search of fresh reading material for entertainment as well as new ideas for playtime. Many women prefer stories that don't just cater to the usual male-centered cliche' Femme Domme fantasies, but are still every bit as nasty, and this book fits the bill. Rachel Kramer Bussel has chosen modern pieces that avoid the porno pitfalls, and that will appeal to both men and women, curious types and seasoned players alike. And since it's all about female dominance, no more skipping around from story to story looking for something of interest.

"She's on Top" is a fun and wild read with a variety of play styles and personalities represented. I especially enjoyed the dominatrix piece, and the cover photo is gorgeous - inspirational in and of itself! Now where did I put my 6" stilettos and male submissive again?

Rachel Kramer Bussel uses her editor's talents (yet again) to piece together a great collection of stories about female dominance in "She's on Top." Its not the typical, obvious stories of dominance, there is something for everyone. Storylines range from food fetish domination to a story set in 1890's. Its hot!

Format: Paperback
What is there to say? Rachel Kramer Bussel is at it at again! With She's On Top, whether the reader is a top novice, a shy submissive, or a bonafied bottom, this book has it covered with stories from all walks of life (no pun intended.) Some are funnier than others, while many are straight-up serious about the sub-culture of female dominace, either way, this book is a clear, sexy look at the art of women on top.

I can't tell you how much this book is both entertaining and educational. What's not to like about female dominance anyway?

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By TammyJo Eckhart VINE VOICE on November 12, 2007
Format: Paperback
Of the 18 stories in this collection, half struck me as stereotypes of the female dominant/male submissive dynamic. I hate those stereotypes so that half of the book is the reason for only 4 of 5 stars. However, the other 9 stories offered either a new view or an interesting twist. These gems are well worth the purchase of the book if stereotypes turn you off while the stereotypes of leather corset and screaming bitch in the the other stories are for those of you who get turned on by that image. My three favorite stories are from Kristina Wright, Lisette Ashton, and Teresa Noelle Roberts whose piece actually made me cry because it was so touching and so very true to some of us with years of experience.

Format: Paperback
Stories of domination and submission usually fall into a pretty narrow spectrum, laden with the traditional accoutrements of BDSM (whips, chains, leather, etc.). While there's no shortage of BDSM imagery, She's on Top manages to move beyond stereotype, examining the eroticism of female domination from a wide range of experiences -- bringing the reader into a Victorian boudoir to witness some distinctly unvictorian action ("Victoria's Hand"), a Wall Street office that has the secretary taking charge ("Suit and Tie"), and a gender-bending fantasy where roles are reversed in more ways than one ("Why Can't I Be You?").

This companion book to "He's on Top" is a sexy romp through female dominance fantasies. Rachel Kramer Bussel's tremendous talent is evident through her writing and her impeccable editorial selection of stories. "She's on Top" is a pleasure to read, and should reside on your nightstand within easy reach. I bought both books, and was lucky enough to attend the release party for the two erotic short-story books. I can't recommend RKB's work highly enough!
