Another Great Anthology from Rachel Kramer Bussel May 18 2010
By Robert T Bakie - Published on
Format: Paperback
_Please, Sir: Erotic Stories of Female Submission_ is the latest of Rachel Kramer Bussel's bookend anthologies (pairing, in this case, with _Please, Ma'am: Erotic Stories of Male Submission_). If you know anything about Bussel's previous anthologies, you know that she has a knack for picking well-written erotica: entries strong on characterization and story that are guaranteed to bring the heat.

The twenty-two stories in _Please, Sir_ explore the world of the female submissive from her point of view and, even within that particular boundary, you'll find a surprising and provocative variety. Some highlights include:

The Negotiation by Remittance Girl: in which a hostile takeover is far from unwelcome.

Pleasure Keeper by Charlotte Stein: in which the waiting is the hardest part, especially for Kit, but the payoff is so very worth it.

Long Time Gone by Heidi Champa: in which a college reunion brings the story's heroine back together with the only man who ever knew what she really wanted.

No Good Deed by Alison Tyler: in which playing the game to lose is playing the game to win.

Anticipation by Shanna Germain: in which supercharged Instant Messaging makes a woman's time away from her dominant lover the ultimate buildup.

There's not a dud amongst them, although you'll always have your favorites,

The final story, Rachel Kramer Bussel's "Your Hand On My Neck", ends the anthology with a spellbinding story of trust and control and the cathartic power of submission.

Highly recommended.

I learned so much! June 21 2010
By Creative Diva - Published on
Format: Paperback
I loved that this book has so many unique perspectives from story to story.
This is a new realm for me and I found the stories insightful. I can see how someone new to these perspectives can learn & enjoy and also how someone already familiar would really enjoy the stories.
The book is an easy read and the stories are a perfect length.
If you are already considering this book, I would go ahead and put it in your cart.

The best kind of sex education June 15 2010
By Sue Katz - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
There are many ways to get a sex education and one of the best is to follow the rich stream of erotica anthologies that Rachel Kramer Bussel puts together.

Her work ranges from erotic collections with such titles as Passion, Naked, Orgasmic and Fast Girls, to volumes, like Please, Sir: Erotic Stories of Female Submission (which follows Please Ma'am: Stories of Male Submission) that concentrate on a particular fetish or sexual sub-community.

Do people really do it on airplanes? Check out her collection of testimonies to The Mile High Club. Wondering how other people feel about oral sex? Try her Tasting Her or Tasting Him anthologies.

Rachel Kramer Bussel titles her Introduction to Please, Sir: Erotic Stories of Female Submission "Risk and Reward," an immediate and clear summary of why woman submissives like what they like. There have been copious articles by feminists (and others) talking about what they get out of kinky sex and deconstructing the world of sexual fantasy, but Bussel has a non-judgmental, informed approach. "It's about unlocking something within yourself so you can reach beyond your normal limits, exposing your body and soul in order to go somewhere you cannot get to alone."

With 22 stories by 22 writers, including a final story by the editor herself, the reader can dip into 22 experiences of submission. Rachel Kramer Bussel's story "Your Hand on My Neck" is an especially exciting example of risk (his hand squeezes her throat) and reward (she loses herself in the pleasure of belonging).

But it is good to start with the beginning of this book, where Shanna Germain's story "Anticipation" gives us one of the strongest depictions of the role of anticipation in this special world of hanky-panky. A woman sits at a computer cafe in Europe writing her lover in the States. Having been apart for six months, imagination and anticipation are their only fuels. As he arouses her through the screen, she says, "I have to bite back a quiet sound of want, swallow it down around my steaming coffee and hope that no one heard." He teases her with his plans for her when they are reunited. "I have to shift and cross my legs, the pulse of my clit beating hard inside my jeans. I'm not one of those women who can come just by rubbing their legs together, sadly. I need a hand on me, ideally his hand, hard and fast, spanking my ass or my clit, bringing me to that heated burn of orgasm."

"The Negotiation" by Remittance Girl, one of the more literary tales in the collection, takes on another basic aspect of kinky sex, an activity that emphasizes frank discussion and consent. Two elegantly suited businesspeople are negotiating a merger, but he tells her that her assets are as yet unevaluated. "In the interests of full disclosure" she pushes her chair back from the table so that she is in full view. "Slowly, she uncrossed her legs and parted them until the hem of her short skirt pulled taut against her thighs." Having examined the assets, he moves the metaphor into kinky gear. "You realize that a merger is not the only option for us? A buyout would suit us just as well... It would provide for a far more reliable corporate governance structure."

Wherever your sexual curiosity takes you, Rachel Kramer Bussel is sure to have gathered together the best erotic stories on the topic.

Sizzling Submission May 5 2013
By Alyssa - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Please, Sir is an anthology of erotic short stories edited by Rachel Kramer Bussel (one of her own stories is also included). This collection focuses on submissive females and dominant males, but if you are looking for a book that incorporates the opposite in regards to a power dynamic Rachel Kramer Bussel has also edited Please Ma'am.

I recommend this for those who are looking for a real collection about submission (and other components of BDSM play) and not those who are looking for something like Fifty Shades of Grey as these stories are not as tame, which I loved. Even if you have read other anthologies on the same subject (as I have) you will still really enjoy this one.

First off, in my opinion this was a GREAT anthology that featured sizzling stories. I read it so fast because I couldn't take myself away from it but at the same time I wish I still had more stories left to read. I didn't have that feeling of some stories turning me on while others didn't and I have not encountered that in many anthologies in the past. All of the stories were well written and I felt like I was sucked in and right there for it all.

As with any great collection it was hard to pick favorites. However, there were a few that I felt were 6 stars instead of 5 stars in my opinion. Here are my favorites:

Because He Can by Elizabeth Coldwell

I Breathe Your Name by Tess Danesi

Veronica's Body by Isabelle Gray

Mommy's Boy by Doug Harrison

Lil' Pet Brat aka Lily Guangli by Kissa Starling

Stroke by Lisabet Sarai

Walking the Sub by Salome Wilde

Your Hand on My Neck by Rachel Kramer Bussel

If you are even considering this book I suggest you get it, you will not be disappointed!

Erotic Ambrosia July 3 2013
By PJ Bayliss - Published on
Format: Paperback
My complements to the chef: Rachel Kramer Brussel, who has combined the talents of 22 Erotic writers, all of who are top-shelf delicacies by themselves, to produce this collection of erotic short stories.

While some readers may feel disconcerted by the brevity of each story and transition to another, this feeling is typical of any short story anthology. For this, I give full marks because there certainly was not any masking of that fact within the pre-amble or description of the book. Naturally one woman's fantasy won't flow directly into another's, so the cover-to-cover plot should not be expected.

I found the book to be like a 'peep hole' or 'erotica roulette' because no matter where I turned within the pages, the action was plain to see, and a new beginning was never more than a couple of pages away. Some of the action was most definitely hard core and bordering my own personal hard limits, other stories were charming and romantic, with a twist of kink. It certainly provides a wide variation of erotica writing and details that are so graphic that would challenge 'tainted vanilla' readers.

Explore this book for what it's worth: a peep-hole styled desert taster, where you might find the lemon that sours your erotic taste buds, or you may just stumble upon on your next most favorite author and favorite appetizer for your own sordid sensual desert.
