One of the best collections for women that I've ever read Sept. 26 2010
By Mrs. Baumann - Published on
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
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.

Does justice to its theme! Aug. 7 2010
By Erotic Elf - Published on
Format: Paperback
The title of this book is an adjective that applies to most good erotica; and yet, with the present collection, Rachel Kramer Bussel brings a special focus to this large-looming aspect of the erotic experience. Whether climax is at the forefront of the protagonist's mind or is simply a magnificent force that arrives without discussion, each of these intensely enrapturing stories gives itself over, in its own way, to a crescendo that not only takes center stage but engulfs the audience.

Sylvia Lowry's "Old Faithful" is an intricately evocative period piece in which details such as a postcard and an album cover are masterfully used to help ratchet up the tension and then propel the situation toward release. In "The Big O," by Donna George Storey, a lonely exploration of technique becomes a transcendent, empowering, revelatory experience that straddles fantasy and reality, self-pleasure and shared pleasure. "Moon Tantra" celebrates the potential in self-paced, eked out, slow-motion sex; author Teresa Noelle Roberts drives the lesson home with beautiful sensuality. Louisa Harte's "Seeing Stars" and Heidi Champa's "Rise and Shine" most definitely live up to the promise of their titles, and erotic imaginations like those of Neve Black, Justine Elyot, and Charlotte Stein show us, in their individual palettes of fireworks colors, how women find their fulfillment in countless ways, and claim it in countless voices.

Not the O in Cheerios Oct. 20 2010
By Axie Barclay - Published on
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 [...]

Another great title from Rachel Kramer Bussel Sept. 12 2010
By Zak - Published on
Format: Paperback
Though most erotica certainly features orgasms, this collection is full of stories that all, in one way or another, focus on them. This doesn't seem like a particularly original or dynamic idea for a collection, but it is pulled off extremely well. Every story has a different look on the topic, and makes you excited to read the next one. The stories are also varied in tone, approach and content, and even though they're all hot, some of them really make you think, too. All in all, it's a great collection, and I would recommend it to anyone, not just women.
