From the Inside Flap
Introduction: The Many Meanings of Submission
Submission means so many different things to different people, which is why I'm delighted to present to you sixty-nine varieties of serving, spanking, obeying, taunting, teasing, worshipping andmore. These very short stories offer a glimpse into the mindset of those wholive to serve, who desire to be bound or spanked or told what to do--or perhaps all three. They get off on giving themselves overto the men and women who control them, whether in the bedroom or the worldbeyond.
When the narrator of Corrine Arundo's "Unanchored" is ordered to masturbate, the "submissive vixen" shares some of the magic of the command: "I love the words, like sharp pokes into my cerebral cortex, tricking me into forgettingeverything else but this moment." In many of these stories, a pet phrase orcommand is enough to trigger the submissive's desire.
What many ofthese submissives want is to be seen, acknowledged, known and valued precisely for their eagerness to give every part of themselves over to another person. "I want to never be able to hide from you," Joy Faolán writes in "I Want to Feel You," which perfectly encapsulates the way the tops in these stories exhibittheir mastery from the inside out.
You'll find somuch here, from naughty professors to sadistic former students to sex clubs, art galleries, photo shoots and more. Wherever the setting, the submission exhibited in these stories runs deep, far below the surface of their recipients' tender skin, far louder than their cries of pleasure (and pain). Whether you read one story a day or devour them all at once, I hopethese quick and dirty stories turn you on to new authors and new naughty possibilities.

If I didn't enjoy a short story as much as another, it was simply because I either wasn't feeling the point of view, or it was written about something that is not my particular fetish. I can't win them all.
Another great thing about this collection is that these short stories are not related at all, other than the central theme. This means that you can stop reading at whatever point you'd like. You can jump around and skip stories, because they are each independent. This is great for when you just want a quickie read, say in between classes (like myself).
I would recommend this anthology to anyone who is interested or turned on by BDSM relationships. The heat level is sizzling and the variety of tales is wide. Obviously, this book deals with sex and BDSM themes, so if those types of things bother you, than this is NOT the book for you. Thanks again to Rachel & Cleis Press for my copy in exchange for my honest opinions.
I just wish that the book included a 2 or 3 line biographical statement about each writer or a Twitter address.
I really loved this story collection. It will long be among my favorites.
