Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In this fourth installment of the highly acclaimed erotica series for and by women, Sheiner, a contributor to the previous editions, takes the helm from Susie Bright. Here, 29 steamy stories illustrate a myriad of sexual experiences including infidelity, talking dirty, pornography, lesbianism, heterosexuality, group sex, dominance, submission, visions of pleasure on another planet and even a gender-changing vampire. All bounds of age, race, time and class are crossed, allowing for a multitude of possibilities in the sexual arena. Every author in this arousing collection skillfully articulates a woman's most intimate desires, from the wish for a real-life muse in Karen Marie Christa Minns's "The Muse Comes" to the seduction of a professor by his student in Sonja Kindley's "Make Me" to a Japanese girl trying to reconcile herself to her attraction to other women in Angela Fairweather's "My Dance at Juliana's." Each uninhibited story in Sheiner's anthology takes the reader into a lush, sensual world where women know exactly what they want?and they get it.

From Kirkus Reviews

The fourth in the most successful series so far of erotica written by women, this time edited by a contributor to the previous Herotica books and a writer for publications such as Penthouse and On Our Backs. Ranging from the graphic through the exotic to the experimental, these 29 stories represent an astonishingly wide spectrum of tastes, styles, and techniques, both in literary approache and subject matter. The most notable flesh out their erotic material without letting it stand alone, while the least effective succumb to the common--and often fatal--flaw of gimmickry. One of the best is Susan St. Aubin's ``Coming and Cumming,'' a seductive growing-up story featuring a teacher who instructs one particular student in far more than the rules of grammar. Also noteworthy is Eve Mariposa's ``Back to the Future with a Vibrator,'' which explores the turbulent transitional stage between adolescence and adulthood by describing a 25-year-old woman's return home for a weekend and the conflict between her public (familial) and private selves. Some stories focus primarily on erotic description: ``The Best Whore in Hillsboro,'' by Carol Queen, begins when a suburban couple hires two high-class prostitutes for a festive foursome romp; and Angela Fairweather's ``My Dance at Juliana's'' is an interior monologue about one woman's repressed lesbian fantasies and her desire to break loose from the cultural constrictions that have inhibited her sexuality. A few tales, meanwhile, offer more groping than pleasure: Debbie Ester's ``My Nail Broke: A Story in Four Scenes'' is a vapid device waiting for a plot; and Annalisa Suid's ``After the War'' is an overly ambitious attempt to capture elusive feelings of loss and sorrow. From raunch to romance, from literary to lightweight. -- Copyright ©1996, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.

Format: Paperback
ok ok, I've read the Heroticas before and after, Erotic Interludes and the Best American Erotica 98,99, but nothing, really, nothing compares to Herotica 4. honeymoon on Cobale is my particular favorite. This is as good as Anais' Nin's delta of Venus. Definitely Erotica Anthology of the decade!

More bang for your buck! Herotica 4 offers a smorgesbord of delicious lip-smacking sex and sensuality. As with the previous Heroticas, I am impressed with the sheer variety of sexual expression found here--bi,lesbian,straight and poly-sexual. These stories offer us strong, interesting and intelligent women who know exactly what turns them on. Make a date with Herotica 4, light a few candles and slip into a warm, fragrant bath--and don't forget to take the phone of the hook . . .

A good stimulus, but too many lesbian interactions and often too much "fluff."
