Opening Minds and Creating Lust June 10 2008
By Shanna Katz - Published on
Format: Paperback
I love reading erotica. All types; kinky, straight, queer, all of it.

But I wasn't sure about reading about rubber, latex, and PVC. I'd never even considered how I felt about these materials (with the exception of this one fantasy I have about black latex gloves and being fisted). However, the cover was hot, and Rachel Krammer Bussel has never led me wrong with any of her anthologies, so I was excited to give it a go.

I'm one of those people that begins at the beginning, and we all know the first story influences how we feel about a book, and Kristina Wright's "The Dress" was really hot; regardless of how you feel about little black PVC dresses. My interest was caught, and I kept reading. Alison Tyler's "Rubber Necking" was well-written, and provided some beautiful mental imagery; an excellent story!

The story that really got me? "Slicker Than Slik," by Radclyffe. This story was so incredible, I was about ready to go out and buy a jar of latex pain, and shave off all of my body hair. I could completely imagine myself in this story; it is incredibly descriptive and I had to take a quick break from the book after reading it.

For those that are into more heavy kink, Thomas C. Roche's "Butterfly's Kiss" is decadent, delightful, and dark. I loved it.

This is one of the few anthologies I've read where I actually enjoyed a good 80% of the stories in it; outstanding. Plus, it's inspired me to go hunt down a latex dress of my own. Highly recommend -- even if you're not sure how you feel about Rubber Sex.

A little something for every rubber fan June 18 2008
By Gabriel - Published on
Format: Paperback
Whether you're simply curious, or a fan of all things rubber, Rachel Kramer Bussel's "Rubber Sex" has something to offer you. The stories collected with in, range from flirtatious and experimental, to dark and highly erotic.

The reader is thrown directly into the mix, from the very first story, "The Dress." An erotic and sensual adventure of a woman and her PVC dress, "The Dress" sets the tone for what this anthology has to offer. Stories to excite your imagination, and offer you and a partner, new ideas, or simply the ability to spice up your latex passion.

Stories such as Andrea Dale's, "Bathing Beauty", shows the true depth of this collection, offering an entirely different take on how and why people enjoy rubber. While Bussel's own, "Tight Squeeze", is every boy toys fantasy, wanting desperately to please and be pleased by their Mistress.

Throughout every story, rubber is the main theme, but don't let that sway you one way or the other. Whether you're a fan of rubber or simply curious about what it means, the stories collected in this anthology have a way of playing within that theme, while still offering something to every fan of erotica.

Very good June 7 2008
By ijt - Published on
Format: Paperback
I was so glad to see a broad mix of stories and even more excited to see erotica that included straight, Bi and gay stories. I've been a fan of Rachel's books for a while and this one is right up there with them. If you are into rubber then you will love Rubber Sex.

Sexy sweaty *Rubber Sex* June 9 2008
By o-gal - Published on
Format: Paperback
First off, let me just say that I didn't even know that rubber and rubber-sex erotica would be a turn-on. I'd never given rubber garments much thought. Leather, sure. Lace and gauzy nightdresses, etc., absolutely. But rubber? It sounded...smelly and industrial. This book changed my mind. (I can't see myself decked in a rubber catsuit -- yet, but the idea has been planted.)

From Rachel Kramer Bussel's introduction onward, I was intrigued. Alison Tyler's excellent "Rubber Necking" led me to Jessica Lennox's stellar and breath-taking "In the Middle." I also enjoyed Rachel's "Tight Squeeze" very much. RKB has a distinctive voice but such a broad range, I never tire of her work. Thomas S. Roche's "Butterfly's Kiss" was another favorite from the anthology. An unusual choice (for me) and an odd and compelling tale, I had to read it twice to make sure I "got it."

The stories were all rubber-centric, and if you are a rubber enthusiast, you will LOVE this book. Even if you are on the fence about rubber, this book might help sway your opinion. Any book that can make me consider donning rubberwear in NYC's 100-degree heat has got to be good!

Surprisingly Hot & Tingly Aug. 25 2008
By Gray Miller - Published on
Format: Paperback
I was surprised by how much I liked this book. I'm not a rubber fetishist, and that's part of why I got the book - I kind of wanted to find out what it was about the subject of rubber that got people so hot.

Now I think I get it. I think it was the "bathing" story that really first opened my eyes to the fact that it's an ingrained thing - this was the first story I read in the book, luckily. After that, it made the rest very, very enjoyable - "Tight Dress" and "Slicker than Slik" especially (my girlfriend also liked the latter story a lot.

Rachel's excellence as an editor shows in that she can take a subject and bring together authors that will appeal to all genders and sexual preferences because the writing itself is good. You don't have to be into rubber or a particular body type to get turned on by a well-turned phrase or a well-described feeling. There were passages that positively made the hair on my neck stand up, they were so damn evocative.
