We had to do it… We’ve got friends, you know… and quite a few of them have read and enjoyed Fifty Shades of Grey, Darker, and Freed. So after the movie came out and we all were at some point in some stage of watching it. Then came the newest book, GREY, which is the story from Christian’s perspective. One of my anonymous friends (that I’ve known 20+ years) agreed / asked to read and review the new title. She also shared it with another mutual friend of ours so I have the beauty of two perspectives on this book to share with you. Without further ado…

“I thought the book Grey was repetitive and not really that worth the effort to write it. I believe that the reason fans were interested in his point of view was to have a better understanding of his dark & stormy nature; the Fifty Shades books already gave some trite indication of that, and this didn’t move it forward in a significant way. I didn’t finish the book. The language in this book may have been slightly more palatable than the others, mostly because there is less “murmuring” than in the first book. These books are junk food, so if you read it with that filter, you can’t be too disappointed. “

“My friend told me it was so ‘good’ she couldn’t finish it… Haha…. it’s not good. Repetitive like the originals (which I read all 3) and I think I don’t like GREY as much. I’m not excited to keep reading it but I’ll probably finish it.

The male perspective is that… stereotypical sex hungry control freak. ALL he can think about is Ana’s lips around his cock. Gets old”

“This book is definitely more sexually descriptive. Apparently because it’s the man’s view…”

“Although this book is written so simply and falls so far away from any good literature, I still want to keep reading… I’m high on it… basically it’s a cheesy romance for the  times. Fabio take me away. It (kinda) sucks but I keep reading….”

sweetandrough-coverSweet & Rough has been a long time coming. For years, Sinclair Sexsmith immortalized their hottest sexual adventures as erotic stories on Sugarbutch Chronicles, earning a reputation as the Internet’s queer Casanova. Writing on BDSM, polyamory, butch/femme (and occasionally my personal favorite, butch/butch) desire, Sexsmith authored the world’s largest archive of kinky, queer erotica from a genderqueer, masculine of center perspective. Now edited for our eBook and paperback reading pleasure, Sweet & Rough: Queer Smut is a rare gift. You’ll want to take this one to bed.”

BBE14_hiresWhen I’ve had enough, I lift myself away from his reach. I lean in and kiss his messy face, tangling tongues with him to taste my own tanginess on his lips before whispering, “Thank you; such a good boy you are.”

I stroke his hair and caress his bearded face, reveling with him in this calm moment. As a treat I reach down to play with him, wetting my palm and rubbing it tenderly on the head of his bound cock until he is thrusting up into my hand, silently asking for more. Before he can get too invested in believing I’m finished with him, I stop.

“Do you want to be untied?” He shakes he head and looks at me coyly. “Naughty thing.” I smile, pleased, and reach for several more coils of hemp rope, resting them on his chest so that he can enjoy the weight and earthy smell of them until I’m ready to put them to use.

big-book-of-orgasmsIf I had to use only three words to describe The Big Book of Orgasms they would be: Creative, Explosive, and Hot!

The stories are well-written and wonderfully curated by Rachel Kramer Bussel. While I would not call any of them vanilla, the stories range from scintillatingly “tame” all the way to jaw-droppingly kinky. The short format of each tale made reading a deliciously excruciating experience. But that was easily assuaged as it moved onto another titillating treat.

As a sexologist and sex educator, I am more than aware of and very comfortable knowing that there are some kinks or turn-ons that do not align with my own. And that is perfectly okay. That being said, and without giving anything away, there were some scenes whose themes might have squicked me out without the context, but reading this collection, they were just steamy, sexy stories.

The pansexual pairings make this an anthology that will appeal to a wide range of individuals. I happen to relish a book that holds stories of people of many sexual orientations.

The Big Book of Orgasms is one erotica anthology that I know I will come back to again and again.

If you are interested, you may order your copy here and here.

In order to be completely transparent: I received The Big Book of Orgasms for free in exchange for an unbiased review.

REVIEWS

“It’s the ultimate nerd-fantasy wet dream, and I am looking forward to the next volume.“ – Geeks Out

“On a whim, I bought a copy of this book.  I read in one sitting, non-stop, except for breaks where I needed to celebrate how turned on I was.  This is a hero fetishist’s fantasy, hitting on D/s, lycra/spandex, and a dozen other kinks in between.  It’s not an expensive book, either, so do the right thing and give yourself the Golden Man treatment.” – Captain Spandex Blog

“This is a totally new kink erotica book. I don’t know that there’s another book out there about these particular fetishes.“– NoSafeWord Podcast
