For the chronic masturbator with impeccable taste...The design of this absolutely beautiful cloth hard-covered collection contained in a slipcover box marked simply with the cut-out letter X is enough to turn you on.

TIME OUT NEW YORK
...it's a beautiful hardcover book featuring some of the most outstanding authors of erotica ever. Brainy and horny at once.

By A. Whitney VINE VOICE on January 30, 2009
Format: Hardcover
Last night I attended a reading at Books Inc. for this book. It was a real treat to hear four of the authors read their stories out loud. I could feel the energy in the air as the sexual tension built with each reading. :)
I enjoyed this book immensely. Not only is it a gorgeous, luxurious book that would make a beautiful Valentine's, birthday or Christmas gift, but the content inside is rich, too. The stories feature a range of sexual situations from lesbian shoe worship, hot anonymous alley hook-ups, sex with a murderer on the run, to ritual spanking and circus love. While some of these scenarios may not be my particular fantasy, all are well-written, compelling and hot.

This would make a superb gift for both the erotica newbie and the person with a shelf full of sexy paperbacks who might enjoy a special treat.

Worth the price just for the feel of it -- gorgeously made, with its own classy deep red slipcover, definitely a keeper for the shelves. And just when you think there's nothing new and interesting happening in erotica, here's a great collection of 40 stories by the best authors around. Some funny, some hardcore, some softer, but all of them written in great style. I think I'll read this to my lover, one exquisite story at a time!

Lots of stories, some great, come poor. Some words are separated for no specific reason and makes for some hard reading. When I say some, I do not mean a lot but it is the 1st Kindle book I've read that has this problem. I have not finished the book yet but expect the rest of the stories will be the same.

This anthology is unusual for several reasons:

1. It's a beautiful gift book, its cover decorated in a deep, shiny, rich, red pattern that looks almost like brocade, inserted into a fancy, equally decorative, cardboard holder with an "X" cut out.

2. The stories are really well-written. Most erotica just plops the reader into a sex scene, but most of these stories actually have plot development and character nuance.

3. This anthology runs the gamut of sexual preferences and turn-ons. Whether or not a particular story or sex act turns you on personally, it's a rich collection of what rings people's chimes.

Susie Bright definitely knows her literotica. Another fantastic collection from her. Even if you do not enjoy all of the stories....there will be one you can "identify" with....that is the beauty of a treasury.

I bought this book along with some other erotica, as a way of revitalizing my sex drive while struggling with sexual dysfunction. Since I have vulvodynia, sex has always been painful for me and the idea is very scary. Since I love to read, books seemed like a natural and safe way to inspire desire. For my purposes I found the book to be way too kinky. I was looking for safer and gentler sex scenes and have no interest in bondage at all. If you are looking for wild scenarios to expand your sexual fantasies, then this might work for you.

I am an avid reader of erotic anthologies so I'm always on the look out for good ones to add to my collection. A few of the stories I have in some of my other books, but the book is so nicely packaged, I had to have it. And of course the stories are hot!

This book offers a great mix of different stories and caters for a wide variety of tastes. The stories are well-written and a pleasure to read in every sense of the word. Whether you're alone or together with someone special to share this book with, you're sure to have a great time.
The book cover adds to the sense of the unusual and its intriguing feel will enhance the experience.

I can also recommend The Adventures of Lady Harpur. (see my list Victorian Erotica)
