One of the highlights of Purple Panties is women discovering the delights of the female sex for the first time. This is portrayed in stories such as "The Finest Man," wherein a feminine security guard is tantalized by the masculine individual at her workplace, even after realizing he's really a she. Syreeta then ponders what her attraction to the stud says about herself, because she's ready to give it up - no matter what the gender.
As expected, Purple Panties has the no-holds barred escapades that blaze with undeniable chemistry. That's provided courtesy of "The Purple Panty Revue," as Jay meets the faceless neighbor that's haunted her fantasies for the past few weeks; the surprise is where they finally encounter one another - and what happens next.
Purple Panties proves more than provocative, worthy of getting your underwear damp. The only objection is that some stories seem to stop abruptly, and I was left wanting more. Yet I love the fact Zane is bringing lesbian literature to a mainstream black audience; in fact, she's planning to publish a sequel to Panties early next year.
And I, for one, will be happily waiting - because Zane always knows how to put it down.
Reading the stories I couldn't help feeling like a privileged spectator looking through the windows of a world created especially for me! Ask me would any man find something that would change his view of uninhibited love and reckless abandon with license for liberal pleasure, and I'm sure there would be vociferous views for more. Each story had points of contention for the individual author's penchant for quality and means to elicit excitement. I have my favorites - namely PLEASURES by Elissa Gabrielle; Allison Hobbs' THE PRIVATE ROOM; and JACQUIE by Jolie du Pre. You will undoubtedly recognize a few authors here that are no strangers to erotica, but with typical anthologies you will also find some stories better written than others. There's a good mix that doesn't take away from any perceived negative for the most part.Read more ›
This anthology has 26 stories, including one by Zane. In the preface, Zane is clear to state this is a book of "hot" stories and it doesn't matter that it is lesbian erotica, sensuality is sexy no matter whom one chooses as a mate. The stories ranged from random sexual encounters, to those women realizing, for the first time, what was missing from their previous relationships. Some of the stories contained literary prose as other went for the more contemporary vibe to create scenes of pleasure for the women. A few stories were quite different, including Sydney Molare's "Uma" about a young woman whose husband found a nursemaid for their son because the woman was unable to breastfeed. The young mother found watching the child feed arousing. Or the exhibitionist take in Joy Bringas' "Miss Julidene's Sexy Items." There was also the story of a young African female whose sexuality was not the only secret she held.
If you are a lover of erotica, you will find several of the stories in this anthology sensual, captivating and alluring. However, PURPLE PANTIES should be read with openness so one can discern the diverse nature of the writing by each of the authors. Some of the authors were able to write a complete story with all one's emotional senses mesmerized. Some well known erotica authors are included in this collection with a second edition soon to come. Not all the stories will have the reader's rapt attention, but most are well-written and deliver the right about of sensuality without being unpleasant.
