Allright, I must admit that there were some gems to be found in this book: - “I like a smooth body the best, I have to admit, the hand or tongue traveling unobstructed over hard surfaces. Clean like the skin of belugas whales or dolphins or even a pillowcase . . .”- “The small of your knee is wet; it echoes your salivating mouth.” - “Sometimes you press into me gently like leaning into the wind, and sometimes you are pounding me like an animal, like television violence.”- “We’ve [...]
i love erotica you know, and i've bought many editions of the bae. i was pretty nonplussed overall by this year's edition. there were a few standout stories that i enjoyed or that got me vaguley thinking about wanting to have sex. one of the good stories was "charles sykes' spirit of ecstasy" by ps haven. it had a kink to it that i enjoyed. it was a unique story that wasn't at all what i expected it to be. the narrator had a fetish, and she'd always wanted to fuck the spirit of ecstasy, which is [...]
So . . . I have to say if this is the BEST erotica America could come up with in '05, we are in a sorry state. Some of the stories are really good, like really hot, but most are rather hit and miss. The ones that are really worth reading are: "Slippy for President" by Steve Almond, it was an entertaining read--though not particularly erotic. "My Puritan Reader" by Bert Hart; "Seduction" by Cecilia Tan--one of the shortest and also one of the best in the book; "Brontitis" by Maria Dahvana Headley [...]
Branching out into other genres and just plain curious considering all the recent hype around smutty smut smut. Since it had "something for everyone", most of it was weird or had elements of weirdness. Could it be my lack of interest in short stories encompasses dirty ones, too? This is not to say some of them weren't enjoyable. But they were over so fast. *hey-o*
Favorites in this collection are"Hollywood Christmas" (pretty straightforward story about a man fucking a woman, told from his perspective)"It's Never Too Late in New York" (group sex)"My Puritan Reader" (a young New England woman has to be strip searched by a respected man of the town to prove that she is not a witch)
Of the whole collection only 2 or 3 stories were all that engrossing. Not what I expected of "The Best".
Not that good. I was hoping for better.
Was curious to read this from my book club - it's okay, but wouldn't buy it. If you'd like to read ityou can borrow mine.
