"An excellent collection of sexy bite-sized stories of submission. There's something here for everyone." Tamsen Parker, USA Today bestselling author of The Compass series
From the Inside Flap
Introduction: So Many Ways To Be Submissive
Others like to live on the edge of public humiliation, of being "found out," such as the protagonist of "Grocery Run," in which Rose P. Lethe writes, "Jess did hide her face this time, covering it with her free hand while humiliation and--god help her--the stirrings of arousal poured over her like hot wax. Squeezing her thighs was how she liked to come."
In a more private but no less delicious form of being humiliated, the narrator of "Way of Life," by Selena Kitt, experiences a "surge of shame," the kind that for some submissives provides the ultimate arousal. They may protest that they don't want the shame, but deep inside they know they do, know it turns them on like nothing else. Kitt writes, "I didn't stop sucking as he reached into his shirt pocket but I did cry out when he attached a clamp to my throbbing nipples, first one, then the other. They bit into my flesh, a sharp sting that built to a slow, steady burn. He watched me writhe on the machine." It's the physical acts, the body's reactions to that throb and sting, expertly combined with the reason she's submitting in the first place. In other words, the mental aspect of submission and all it symbolizes is just as meaningful to her as the "punishments" he provides.
Other stories take ritual acts and turn them into sexual wonderlands. In "Twelve," R. A. Buckley takes the act of counting and turns it into one that's undeniably erotic as the narrator recounts a hard spanking. "He makes my body sing and react in ways that I never thought would be possible. I've orgasmed from His bare-handed spankings many times in the past, and other ways as well. It's part of our dynamic and why I love Him so."
While there are numerous committed kinky couples here, there are also strangers who meet and instantly connect, finding their counterpart who will say those words that are music to their ears, that put them into a mind-set that makes them want to obey (or deliberately disobey, brat style). I welcome readers who've known for a long time about their kinks, as well as those who, like some of these characters, are exploring them for the first time.
From rope to role-playing, exhibitionism and multiple partners, sex toys and spankings and so much more, these characters meet their naughtiest fantasies head on, with some help from the Dominants who give them a push (or in some cases, a not-so-gentle shove) in the right direction. They highlight the symbiotic relationship between top and bottom, where one needs to control and the other thrives on surrendering.

Ropes, Subs, and Doms, kinks big and small, and desire across the spectrum are covered in this book and these short little pieces really do get the job done. All of the stories are a fantastic primer for newbies and a sultry enough for those with lots of experience. Cleis press does it again!

In “Chased By The Wolf” by Mischa Eliot, the submissive woman wears a bunny costume sent to her by her dominant to attend “The Predators And Prey Ball” at the local zoo. Eliot describes the zoo and nighttime chase of the participants so expertly that I felt like I was there. When the dominant finally catches his submissive, she is “scooped up and carried off.” He then brings her to his home where she says: “He bathed me and petted me until I begged for more.” He then teases her, making her wait. They don’t even have sex in this story, and there is not one sexually explicit term, yet it is so sexy and a complete turn-on!
“Roped In” by Adrea Kore is about “Shibari” which is a Japanese erotic rope bondage practice. Kore’s skillful description of the character’s experience with the rope’s feel of release and tension while it snakes around her body is concurrently described with the tension and suspense that builds up throughout the storyline. The Shibari practice, which she is introduced to at a workshop, is completely new to her. Kore relays to us in the beginning that a rope is involved. This immediately conjures up images of a rough, beige-colored rope. We learn that this is not the case and that the rope is red and silky, and the male Shibari instructor says: “Rope has its own intuitive intelligence. It responds to different bodies in different ways.” It turns out that Kore’s character is VERY responsive to the rope! She submits to it and, in a sense, to all the people involved in the workshop who are watching which is very erotic!
“Metamorphoses” by Emmanuelle de Maupassant is a very sexy story about a young female librarian’s assistant and the headmaster of the school. We are initially introduced to the main librarian, an older woman, who hired this assistant and claims she made a good choice in hiring the young woman because she is so helpful. She says that she has even offered to close up the library for her for the third night in a row. Little does she know that the headmaster has been “servicing” the young assistant after hours by having her climb up the bookshelves while she reads to him as he slowly undresses her. Apparently, this is a new sexual awakening for her. While he prepares to pleasure her, she assures herself that she is still, indeed, herself: “Apple of her father’s eye, church on Sundays, doesn’t stay out late. She’s a good girl, isn’t she?” It is the young woman who submits in this story, but then again, she is the one who is being focused on and is the one receiving the pleasure. So even though he is enjoying her submission, it seems he is submitting to her more than she is to him!
Dr. J’s “Lashed” takes place on a sailing ship at sea. This very hot and sensual story is revealed to us as the female co-captain describes the male captain: “Nelson had always taken care of me, my well-being, my safety. But today he expressed a need.” His need consists of undressing her and giving her a flimsy gauze to wear, tying her up to a pole on the boat while she faces the bow of the boat, and he takes pictures of her. As he snaps the photos, she feels consumed by the ocean and at one with it. Feeling her arousal grow, she says: “The ocean whispered to me. ‘You are his. Submit.’”
This collection also contains hardcore BDSM material, but it is never run of the mill. The stories are complex, and there truly is something for everyone here. Each story is well thought out and not written merely as a device to get off. While so much erotica focuses more on what men want to read (or what women writers and women readers think men want them to read and also want from them regarding sex in general), these stories are more truthful. I would recommend “The Big Book Of Submission Volume 2” to any reader of erotic fiction: male, female, feminist, and hardcore BDSM advocate.
The thing that I really enjoyed about the book was the diversity of it, which should be obvious because of the fact that it features multiple authors, but the diversity doesn’t stop at writing style but it continues with the characters and the stories told. The roles of submissive and dominant alternate between female and male, some stories are more hardcore BDSM while others are sexy without actually describing a sexual act I truly believe it contains something for everyone I personally enjoyed every single one of the stories even if some were not what I usually read.
There are few of my favorite authors like, Emmanuelle de Maupassant, Selena Kitt, but also have found some very talented, new-to-me authors, like Malin James, Angela Sargenti, and Rob Rosen. In “The Assistant” by Malin James and “Conference Call” by Elizabeth Coldwell, the office theme is similar, but each is handled differently and so delightfully delicious.
Metamorphoses by Emmanuelle de Maupassant is taboo and wickedly enticing as it reveals a young assistant librarian, Evie, who begins a game of discovering her sensuality as the Headmaster does naughty things to her, all the while as she reads aloud from a book. So poetic and beautifully descriptive. I voluntarily reviewed an advanced copy of this book.
