From the Inside Flap
Introduction: Beggars and Choosers
Judging from the title Begging for It, you might picture women with their tongues hanging out, perhaps a little drool pooling on their lips, come-hither eyes, kneeling, breasts thrust forward, ripe and ready and eager. And you'd be right--but not entirely right.
The women you'll meet in this book manage to beg in all sorts of ways--boldly, silently, sweetly, submissively, nastily, hungrily. Sometimes, their begging is quiet ardent, clear as a whistle, but other times, they may not even know what it is they're begging for. Each of them, though, is on a journey, a path to find something that's missing from her life at the start. Some are searching for a lover--or more than one--while others have a partner in lust but are still seeking a bit of magic, daring, adventure, to lure them somewhere they've been longing--begging--to go, if only in their dreams.
For this anthology, I wanted stories that spoke to the many ways fantasies can play out in our lives. I wanted femme fatales and shy, unsure women, those who have glimpsed their truest desires briefly but have yet to fully indulge them. I wanted the kind of women whose sexual energy radiates off of them, the kind who turn heads no matter what they're doing, the kind who look just-been-fucked--or just-fucked-someone--whether they actually have or not.
What I got were women who do indeed know what they want, whether it's rope bondage or humiliation, a corset or an erotic adventure, robots or rough sex, but who are also open to finding unexpected, incredible pleasure they could not have imagined. They're women on a mission, but they never know where exactly those missions will lead, and to me, that's the best part of sex, and erotica: that each time might wow us anew. When Lauren Marie Fleming writes, "I was wet, so wet I thought I'd drip on the floor, and my nipples were as hard as my clit, both threatening to make me come with the slightest touch," I'm right there with her, as Tabitha discovers what suspension can truly do for her, not to mention sexy Caleb.
These lusty ladies fall for cowboys, bosses, drag queens, rope wranglers, threesomes, Sirs and strangers, yet they never lose sight of that inner spark that has pushed them to say yes. In giving themselves to the objects of their affection, they're gaining something equally valuable. Sometimes, there's a different kind of give and take involved, such as with the masseuse in D. L. King's "A Proven Therapeutic Fact," who makes the delivery of a spanking a very special event.
These women are both begging and demanding, but most importantly, discovering the thrill of the unexpected. They are all sexual adventurers daring to go where they've never been before, or have only been in their dreams.

Overall, in terms of mastery of the craft combined with the variety of stories presented, I am giving this collection five stars. "Leo Rising" by Suleikha Snyder stood out to me as highly intimate and supremely sexy, with careful attention on the second person point of view.
There's something for everyone here. I think it would be wildly sexy for women to choose their favorite selections and read them aloud to their partners.
As much as I always hesitate picking out stories in these—because truly I did enjoy each and every one of them—I did have a few particular favorites: “Rediscovery” by Hedonist Six, “Self-Denial” by Tilly Hunter, “Apple Thighs” by Jade A. Waters, and “Tabitha the Cat” by Lauren Marie Fleming were especially amazing, in my opinion.
Begging For It is definitely one of the best anthologies I’ve read in a while, and I adore how Rachel Kramer Bussel is never afraid to choose stories one doesn’t typically find in mainstream erotica.
(Disclaimer: I was sent a free copy in exchange for an honest review, but this did not affect my opinions.)
I will say that this book is EXTREMELY hard to write a review for. With such short stories though, I was able to become fully engrossed in ALL of them, before they finished. This read varied with topics from dom/sub, threesomes, individual wants and desires that some might think are too taboo to talk about, and even a robot fantasy. This read really made me think about my sex life and how I could amp it up! I will say that a couple of my favorite stories in the book had to do with women accepting themselves as gorgeous sexual creatures. This book opens up all kinds of avenues for women. Women don't come in the same shape or size, which makes the world wonderful.
Every person has their flaws in their bodies, probable even Victoria Secret models. This book showed women that cast aside what they felt were their flaws to reveal and find their inner vixen. Absolutely loved it!!

Stories like Orcas by Regina Kammer is a hot piece of writing where the female uses a hot tub and a bike rider she met grab onto what she needs out of her vacation. D.l. King’s story ‘A Proven Theraputic Fact’ is another sexy tale of a take charge women delivering the wellness that a satisfying spanking can bring. The collection includes an outstanding sci fi sex fantasy called “Do Robots Breathe?” by Tamsin Flowers. It lets your mind (or fingers) wonder about the future of sex toys.
These aren’t the only exciting stories but just some of the gems that Rachael Kramer Bussel has mined for this wonderful collection. Read it, enjoy it, savior it and share it with someone special if you can.
