Product Description

Review

"It’s Orgasmic indeed. Some of these stories sent me straight to the moon, and then I drifted back down to earth only to take off again on the next page. After I finished this book it occurred to me that I’ve never read anything that focuses so wholly on female satisfaction. I think men tend to steal the limelight since they express arousal and orgasm in such a visual fashion. Women know how to hide it and fake it like pros, and sometimes that works against us, because our bodies are not simple to decipher, and oh! the frustration when we desperately want someone to break our code and read us like a book. That happens in Orgasmic, and it’s a glorious experience."
—Dirty Sexy Books


"As usual, Rachel Kramer Bussel chose stories for Orgasmic
that shock, disturb, and make you think, all while inevitably arousing you."


- Kerry Cohen, author of Loose Girl

One of the best collections for women that I've ever read Sept. 26 2010
By Mrs. Baumann - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Plot Summary: "Orgasmic: Erotica for Women" has twenty-five stories in a little over 200 pages, and they all focus on one thing - orgasm from the female perspective. With infinite variety and endless creativity, the women in these stories find THE ultimate satisfaction with their long-time lovers, new partners, or illicit assignations. Some women like to be dominated, and some like to be in the saddle (literally). It's a stunning collection that lavishes all of its attention on women and the ways they come.

It's "Orgasmic" indeed. Some of these stories sent me straight to the moon, and then I drifted back down to earth only to take off again on the next page. After I finished this book it occurred to me that I've never read anything that focuses so wholly on female satisfaction. I think men tend to steal the limelight since they express arousal and orgasm in such a visual fashion. Women know how to hide it and fake it like pros, and sometimes that works against us, because our bodies are not simple to decipher, and oh! the frustration when we desperately want someone to break our code and read us like a book. That happens in "Orgasmic," and it's a glorious experience.

"Chemistry" by Velvet Moore starts with the line, "The smell of science makes me horny." After reading about what happens to a hospital administrator in a laboratory, I can certainly understand why. The heroine in "Seeing Stars" by Louisa Harte suffers on a camping trip until she learns that exposing herself in nature can draw forth her primitive side, and every soft breeze or cool drop of rain is a sensory explosion while making love under the stars. Another couple has stealth sex in a public place while watching a lunar eclipse in "Moon Tantra" by Teresa Noelle Roberts.

As hot as I found the outdoor action, I was just as tantalized when things moved inside. "Making Shapes" by Lily Harlem portrayed a woman who is my kind of artisan, and she makes functional art based on molds of her client's most intimate parts. Who ever heard of falling in love with a penis at first sight? Well, it happens here. "Animal Inside" by Neve Black is a voyeur's dream, with a hole in the wall and two strangers enjoying their separate, yet shared, experiences. In "The London O" by Justine Elyot, a woman teases her lover with tales of past escapades, only to have him top them all with the help of a special pair of knickers.

These were just some of my favorites from this "Orgasmic" collection. Ladies, enjoy yourselves.

Inevitably Arousing, Indeed Aug. 29 2010
By Robert T Bakie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
It took me some time to properly absorb this one. With most of the books Rachel edits, I tend to run pell-mell through them, mentally bookmarking my favorite stories and then impatiently drumming my fingers, waiting for the next collection. This one was a bit slower to take in. Is it less visceral? No, not really. Is it that I'm a guy and the collection is ostensibly aimed toward women? Maybe a little, as each story is told from the woman's perspective, but I don't think that that makes it any less powerful as a collection. I guess this collection just lends itself to savoring and slow-burn more than pell-mell running, and that's just fine.

As always with Rachel's collections, it's easy to pull some favorite stories out:

In "Frosting First," by Lana Fox, an encounter that turns into a mixture of culinary delights and secretive(?) exhibitionism sets the stage (table) for future fun.

In "All She Wanted," by Andrea Dale, a pregnant sub and her dom husband find a way to safely and delightedly get their kink on, when they add a friend and switch the roles around.

In "The Waiting Game," by Elizabeth Coldwell, a holiday cottage, terrible weather and an unreliable deck of cards create a "perfect storm" of erotic anticipation.

In "The Chair," by Lolita Lopez, a submissive woman finds delight in a specialized chair and the ministrations and "punishment" of her inventive lover.

And, as you might expect form one who edits so many great collections, Rachel's own "The Belt," about a woman and her need for a worn leather belt and the man who skillfully wields it, is also a standout of this anthology.

Stolen Moments Oct. 24 2010
By Penny Mykels - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Stolen moments, voyeurism and fantasies galore.. Orgasmic, has it all. From a fifties era vacuum cleaner salesman to a sculpture artist to equestrian analogies, Rachel even surprises us by including a bit of religious piety in the virginal story of finding god within the joy and passion of first time sex.

The Chair by Lolita Lopez is an exquisitely detailed look into the world of D/s.

Share by Dusty Horn.. This testosterone filled story is so hot in the way only a female could describe!

Paying it Forward by Kendra Wayne comes across as a most lovely bit of tutorial written as a dreamy reminiscence.

All she Wanted ... Oh, how the intense cravings of need the main character felt, jumped right off the page and into my loins. We've all felt desires for something forbidden to us and the story telling by Andrea Dale painted her crystal clear yearnings. This was my favorite of the anthology.

Then we have Rachel's own Belted. An intimately detailed, take you along for the ride emotional description of S/M needs. Dark feelings brazenly revealed for all to bear witness. Bravo, Rachel ... bravo!

Not the O in Cheerios Oct. 20 2010
By Axie Barclay - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
In Orgasmic, the reader will find twenty-five hand-picked stories of "o", and not the kind in Cheerios. Orgasmic explores the depth and range of the female orgasm as never before, acting as homage to all things o-worthy. It's a toe-curling, shudder-inducing, must-read-with-a-lover-close-by kind of fiction. No reader of this book will leave disappointed, and if they do, it's their own dang fault. Ripe words that hang on the tongue, stories ride that verge, suspending the reader there for as long as possible and pushing them over the edge. The stories aren't meant to underline the orgasm-centric nature of societal attitudes, but instead slow down and act as a "fictional showcase" for the times when the reader finds their pump needs primed and they need to remember to admire the quality of feelings and sensations before, and after, the o-event. No holds are barred as the women in Orgasmic seek pleasure in the common and the unique, acting as bold, shy, or anything in between as they desire. For more on Orgasmic, check out [...]

Sexy and Thrilling July 25 2010
By Miss Kay - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is amazingly well-written, and Rachel Kramer Bussel did a great job collecting stories that really fit the theme of this one. If you couldn't guess, the theme is actually women receiving and having orgasms. All of the stories are written from the female's point of view, so this further leads to this being "erotica for women". The book is 209 pages long and includes 25 stories - that equals out to be about 8 pages per story. The cover and the back cover aren't very discreet, so I honestly wouldn't recommend taking this out in public.

There isn't much of masturbation included in this book. Almost all of the orgasms take place in the context of heterosexual relationships where the woman is forced to, or the male gives her, orgasms. Many times, the woman receives multiple orgasms, and the book's writing really does focus on the orgasm more than any other part of the sex. All of the stories have interesting plots that I enjoyed reading, but none of them really "jumped" at me. They're all stories that were hot and enjoyable on the first run-through, but not something that I remembered past the reading of it.

Not all of the stories are so predictable. In fact, I loved this book just because most of the stories weren't. Even though you knew the woman was going to orgasm in every story, you really had no idea how it was going to happen. For example, a submissive woman meets up with her Dominant in the middle of a crowded city street. They start making out, then he orders her to rub herself up against his clothed crotch in the middle of the street until she orgasms. Or in another story, a couple chooses to go visit some famous public places while she's wearing a vibrator in her panties in which he controls the remote. Or in another, a woman is caught peeking in a shady hotel room in which the two bathrooms share a hole. The male calls her on it then starts to pleasure himself in the shower for her to watch.

Overall? If you want to check out some hot erotica that'll last you for awhile (It took me 2 1/2 hours to read), check out the Orgasmic: Erotica for Women book - especially if you just want to find a reason to read some erotica.
