Book Description

April 1 2008
What do women really want? To be sensually seduced or pressed up against the wall for a quickie? To be tantalized by a peep show or the chance to join the mile high club? Acclaimed erotica writer and editor Rachel Kramer Bussel knows: They want it all. They want to be worshiped, ordered around, sent blindly into ecstasy, and made hot in front of a mirror. They want strangers bearing ice cubes on a hot day and to be the party favor passed around among guests. They want sex at the office and in the great outdoors and on trains and airplanes. They want sex with the whole United States of America (or, at least, part of it). They want to be wooed, seduced, flirted with, taken. They want to handpick their lovers and make them do their bidding. They want men, women, and sometimes both at the same time. In Dirty Girls, the country's best erotic writers explore their sexual psyches. With contributions from Carol Queen, Alison Tyler, Sofia Quintero, Shanna Germain, Lillian Ann Slugocki, Tsaurah Litzky, and many others, this collection will set your heart racing as you savor these intimate, shocking, and passionate female fantasies.

Review

"Finally a book about what girls REALLY think about. Well, maybe not
every one, but the dirty ones...and those are the ones who really
count." &mdash Joanna Angel, CEO, Burning Angel Entertainment

""Dirty Girls" is the post-feminist generation's answer to Nancy Friday's "My Secret Garden", a collection of erotically charged short stories that reveal that, in the 21st century, good girls are dead and dirty girls are the new black." &mdash Susannah Breslin, author of "You're a Bad Man, Aren't You?"

"A spanking good collection of smart erotica assembled by always exciting ringleader Rachel Kramer Bussel, "Dirty Girls" begs the question 'What are those dirty girls thinking?' and answers with insight not just to how women want it, but why."
&mdash Lisa Beth Kovetz, author of "The Tuesday Erotica Club"

"This is an outstanding collection of hot women's stories. That's hot stories by women and stories by hot women. The table of contents reads like a who's who in the best erotica writers around, an All Star team who deliver the raunch and punch the reader deserves. Rawr."
&mdash Cecilia Tan, author of "Black Feathers and White Flames: Erotic Dreams"

5.0 out of 5 stars Dirty, dirty! March 29 2009
By ttfn21
Format:Paperback
Finding really good erotica has become somewhat increasingly harder over the years, so I was thrilled when I took a chance on this one and it turned out to be exactly what I wanted--hard hitting, sexy, hot erotica! In this anthology, it's all about what women really want and most of them want really good, hot sex! All in all, it's a keeper! Another good one: Sex Scenes: Erotica Excerpts from the Novels of Kim Corum.

2.0 out of 5 stars Poorly edited romance novel Dec 20 2008
By Cheeke Maroo - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a mediocre book, which, for being titled "Dirty Girls," seems to be borderline romance-novel, and as one reviewer stated, the writers seemed to be trying too hard to get you off, rather than just enjoying the flow.

The thing that kills this book isn't that there are only 3-4 well-written stories, it's that this book is poorly edited. There are numerous grammatical errors that abrasively snap the reader out of the story. Here are some excerpts:

"Or maybe he's a cowboy, and he's going to whisk me away to his ranch in the mountains and [f..k] me in a field of wildflowers til every muscle is my body aches."

That's right: "is my body aches." But when the hell did "dirty" and getting "whisked away" ever meet each other? Oh, in this book. I thought we were trying to get away from being "WHISKED AWAY." Ugh.

Here's another for you:

"When all her clothes lay in a heap at her feet except her high heels, he pulled off his boots, stripped out of his jeans, walked up to her, and lovingly put her brassier back on. He said, 'Gracie Angelique DuBois, what am I doing[sic] to do with you?"

- Lillian Ann Slugocki "Truck Stop Cinderella"

"What am I doing to do with you?" Are you kidding me?

I became increasingly disappointed as I got into the book; "Truck Stop Cinderella" was the final irritant (merely 7 stories in), and I skimmed through the rest. I started story after story, but repeatedly encountered long-winded, romance-y, over-development.

Different strokes for different folks, but this book didn't stimulate my imagination; as a whole it was an intellectual let-down.

With that said, there were 3 excellent writers. High marks to Marie Lyn Bernard, Isabella Gray, and Andrea Dale. I will look for more from these particular authors. However, this book is very much like buying a CD and only liking 3 songs on the entire album.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good collection of erotica Dec 2 2010
By Alice in Wonderland - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Dirty Girls is a collection of erotic short stories written by women and for women. The stories are all well written, and quite enjoyable. As for the dirtiness, well, admittedly the book does take a bit of a hit there. The stories are steamy, but few of them really get red hot. Nonetheless, I thought that it was a good collection of erotica, and enjoyed reading it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hot Sex with a Dash of Character Development and Emotion April 10 2008
By Kris Madison - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I've loved reading erotica ever since I discovered my older sister's well-worn copy of Penthouse Letters as a teenager. The stories in Dirty Girls are certainly as hardcore and dirty, maybe more so, than anything I ever read in Penthouse, but without any of the awful descriptors that make me cringe (and snap me back to reality).

Written by some very talented female writers, the collection of stories in Dirty Girls is incredibly diverse. Some stories gave me ideas I'd like to incorporate in my own bedroom activities, some pushed my boundaries and made me feel a little uncomfortable. There are no hearts and flowers or Harlequin romance story lines here, which is fine by me. I tend to avoid erotica designated specifically "for women" because it focuses too much on that stuff - romance, long drawn-out story lines or extraneous details that I don't need. The stories in this collection strike the perfect balance of hot sex with a dash of character development and emotion.

The only reason I can think of that this book would be designated as "erotica for women" is because nearly all of the stories have a female protagonist and are told from her point of view - her pleasure, her orgasm(s). This, to me, is a welcome change from the cock-centric porn industry.

It's truly a joy to read such hot, well-written material, particularly if you're curled up in bed with someone reading aloud.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book lives up to its promise! June 9 2008
By Erotic Elf - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
An expert editor has gathered a brilliantly eclectic assortment of striking, breathtaking, inventively conceived and sexually supercharged work from some of the most talented and acclaimed female erotica authors ... and the anthology that has resulted is everything one would hope: in short, a collection of erotic masterpieces that is itself a masterpiece.

And speaking as a heterosexual male reader, I say to others in my demographic: Do NOT let the tagline "Erotica for Women" cause you to miss out on this.
4.0 out of 5 stars Good, well-mixed read Nov. 14 2013
By Reviewer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Entertaining anthology, with a well-blended mix of themes/styles, and some excellent stories. All but three of the stories had something to recommend them - and even then, that could be due to personal preferences about writing style.

Standout stories:

1.) "Live Tonight" - Saskia Walker: Naomi, turned on by sex in a live music setting, finally meets a stranger to fulfill her fantasy.

Adroit/theme-centric title, good writing, great end-lines.

2.) "Beautiful Creatures" - Kristina Wright: Normally, I'm not a fan of spouses-cheat-without-punishment works, but this is an exceptional, hot-from-the-get-go, focused piece, with a finish that wraps up the tale with a go-back-to-the-beginning effect.

3.) "In The Name Of. . ." - Isabella Gray: Clever, sometimes funny, reads-like-real-life and emotionally-veracious story about a woman (Isabella), her husband (Theo), Sharpee pens and a Isabella's friend, Francesca.

This story has a perfect balance of romance, relationship- and fantasy-based trepidation, effective sex writing and engaging characterization.

4.) "Cheesy Boots" - L. Elise Bland: A laugh-out-loud, off-beat BDSM "scene" with an strange foodie submissive and an exotic cheese-loving Domme.

5.) "Like a Good Girl" - Alison Tyler: Imaginative BDSM tale, excellent.

6.) "Bag and Baggage" - Teresa Noelle Roberts: A couple (Jillian and Michael) work through Jillian's memories of a dead lover with whom she once visited the City of Lights, while creating new memories. Natural, exemplary weaving of past/present, plot and sex, and characterization (particularly the incredibly patient Michael).

7.) "Icy Hot" - Rachel Kramer Bussel: Sensory-vivid, beyond-summery hot story about two strangers, a bag of ice and lots of foreplay. Again, all-around excellent piece.

8.) "Shocking Exposé! Secrets Exposed!" - Carol Queen: A bibliophile goes on a "literary orgy" (city-wide book-buying trip), and is seduced by a similarly bibliophilic couple.

Exemplary, charming city as a character - in this case, San Francisco - tale: perfect.

9.) "To Dance At The Fair" - Donna George Storey: Elizabeth, an academic inspired by a beneficent Depression-era stripper's life story, has a threesome with two longtime male friends.

What sets this tale apart from other ménage à trois works is Storey's back-and-forth structure, its strong emotional content and characterization, and effective revelations that attend the sexual shenanigans. Above average, involving genre tale.

10.) "The First Deadly Sin" - Gwen Masters: Fun, blasphemy- and lust-inspired sex in a church piece, with a memorable, wicked finish.

11.) "Flight" - Suki Bishop: A college campus affair turns dark, particularly intense for its lovers. Superb, gripping showing of May-October desires.

12.) "Party Favor" - Andrea Dale: A rock band and their entourage turn a woman into the titular object, via vibrators. Short, sharp, effective.

13.) "The Next Thing" - Gina de Vries: Past and present meld when a lesbian contrasts her Massachusetts and San Francisco sexual experiences. Restless, charming work.

14.) "Until It's Gone" - Shanna Germain: Excellent, cleverly titled story about a woman (Maria) who discovers the joys and sorrows of belt and heartplay. Emotionally resonant, yet restrained and genre-effective piece.
