It works, and works rather well. This stuff is short and sweet, and you know what you're getting up front. The book reads fast, and you can wolf this whole thing down in less than an hour if you really get into it. Some stories here were achingly predictable and equally trite, but there were no bad stories, no turn-offs, nothing unsavory or offensive. This is outstanding bedtime reading, whether you're having one or five.
Carol Queen's intro specifically says the stories are aimed at hetero women. I did not get that vibe from reading the stories. The author representation is 66% female. Interestingly, there are a number of stories by both male and female authors writing to the other gender's point of view; and they worked, for the most part.
You've got 35 stories in 121 pages. For the smut-nerds out there, that's 3.45714 pages per story, with the longest story coming in at a whopping five pages and the shortest being Cecilia Tan's unfortunately introductory, numbing, strangely non-erotic, one-sentence one-pager writing exercise on seduction.Read more ›
I think that experienced readers of erotic romance novels would not be satisfied with this collection as the stories are three to four pages each and therefore don't build to a suspenseful crescendo. For readers searching for a tasteful introduction to erotica, this has some beautiful work and there is something for everyone and every age between it's pages.
Each story lives up to the "five minute" rule and were very easy to read. I liked some stories more than I liked others. Some left more to the imagination than others. On a whole the book was a really good read and there were no stories that left me feeling disappointed.
I liked the variety that was offered by the books. From stories having only play to those that had full blown sex, and those that had both, each story was written well. There were no glaring errors. There was one story that I had to read parts of again as I wasn't sure what the author meant but in a book of over 40 stories that's pretty good going.
For those just getting started with this genre this is a perfect book to start with. It gets the mind racing and I have to say its helped me with writing sex scenes, in the way that I can now put the words together a little easier.
I give Five Minute Erotica 4/5.

Good stories, true to title. Pretty soft stories, perfect for first time erotica readers.Published 24 days ago by Amazon Customer
Out of 35 stories, I'd say perhaps two or three are readable. Not good, but not as bad as the rest. This book is simply terrible. Read morePublished on October 13, 2010 by Amazon Customer
A good collection of short sexy iterludes. No plots, no characterization -- just sex! Great for a quick "change of pace" from other reading.Published on July 28, 2007 by Paul R. Mcclenon
Everyone's idea of erotica is different. Now that that is out of the way, this book sucked. Sure there was a couple of good stories but 99% was hot if you are an 80 yr old... Read morePublished on June 13, 2006 by Avid Reader
