Product Description

Review

"This anthology is very well written. The stories are all tightly woven and fast paced. The way lesbians relate in an erotic BDSM scene is surprisingly close to m/m erotic stories, even down to calling the Top--Daddy--and the bottom--boy. There were many hot scenes of strap-on sex which was a delight. These stories weren't gentle sweet sixty-nine and cooing. Instead, the reader is treated to some rough sex with whimpering, begging and juices a dripping. Where is the signup sheet?" --BDSM Book Reviews "For those who enjoy pain and pleasure as a sensual cocktail, the imagination has no limits. Say Please: Lesbian BDSM Erotica is a collection of short erotic fiction from assorted authors as editor Sinclair Sexsmith compiles some of the best stories in the genre, focusing on stories of power, dominance, submission, humiliation, and punishment. Say Please is a strong pick for any assortment of fiction looking to add something that has a good deal of spice to it." --Midwest Book Review "Once of the main things I liked about this erotic collection was the fact that it is so unique. It's very difficult to find any BDSM book that focuses on lesbians only, and that's exactly what this book did. The book includes a lot of women strapping on cocks/dildos, but the book is focused on the power exchange between the two females as well as the kink and BDSM. Again, though, the power exchange is the biggest feature in most of the stories, and the bottom submits quite freely while the top takes the power and uses it for deliciously kinky things." --Pop My Cherry Reviews "The writers in Say Please aren't afraid to get dirty. Although Dusty Horn's narrator is referring to her unpolished boots, hot lines like "When you see me filthy, you know I mean it" are just dripping with innuendo and vulgar promises. And she makes good. As I turned the final page, I melodramatically went into mourning. Say Please had me practically begging for more. It got me saying please. I bet it'll get you too." --Kiki DeLovely "Definitely one of the best anthologies I've read, overall content quality was superb. The anthology is heavy with butch/femme characters, which I'd expected so I was happy to see a butch-butch pairing and gender binary non-conforming characters as well. I'm hoping to see these kinds of characters become more common in queer erotica, partly because I think its great to expose the erotica reading public to experiences and desires of transgressive people. But Say Please is more than a collection of hot sex scenes. No really. Great depictions of realistic D/s, with negotiation and communication and respect -- aspects of D/s that are vital to mutually satisfying experiences. Consent is Sexy! Pass it on..." --Butchtastic Blog "Whether you're a super-kinky mofo or just window shopping in the world of bondage erotica, there is something for everyone in this book. And as an unapologetic intellectual elitist, let me take this moment to assure you that the writing is top-notch. Gone are those old teenage days of sneaking naughty queer books out of the library only to get home and realize they all suck (and not in the good way)." --Velvet Park

This collection was nothing short of electrifying; I'm fairly new to Sinclair Sexsmith, but I adore Sugarbutch.net and this intense and delectable anthology is not only an incredible turn-on, it's a well-crafted, intelligent collection full of the most exotically captivating characters, mind-blowing erotic tension and sexual intrigue.

The collection is cohesive yet at the same time the writers are diverse and individual, the perfect mix of voice and style; the writing is authentic, raw and genuine, as well as being crafted in such a way that it allows you the luxury of actually feeling as though you're part of the action (and gosh, does that feel heavenly).

This powerful, saucy and highly astute compilation definitely left me panting for more and I'm now officially a devoted Sinclair Sexsmith fan; Say Please comes highly recommended for anyone who is looking for a sinfully juicy, wildly entertaining and though-provoking read.

Maybe i am to much of a lipstick les but i thought my interests in les BDSM would have been captured in this book - they weren't - there is too much daddy/boi and "cock" verbage in this book.. To much of the same theme - Domme (Daddy) puts dildo into sub (boi)- boi cums, hugs Daddy all is good they all asleep together.. as a sub myself, i was seeking more "naughty and perverse" erotism.. i think this book was designed form males that want to get off reading about girls doing girls - and it probably sells well to guys - but for me it was just ho-hum.. i seek more.. and will continue to look.. any suggestions ;-)

Not exactly lesbian erotica... Jan. 20 2014
By Iris - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Before you get all excited and want to write me hateful responses, let me remind you that this a review for readers who are looking for more than technically female on female Bdsm erotica.
Lesbians come in all shades of gender expression, this is why I was disappointed by the hyper masculinization of tops and doms in this erotica collection. It's cool people like to use "daddy," "sir," and neutralish pronouns like "hym" and "ze" for their tops, but this is not a turn on for me and I doubt I'm the only one. I guess I expected more than one "Mistrss," Ma'am," "mommy" or feminine-like pronoun for tops in this collection, and when I say "more" I mean more than 2 stories! Almost all the tops in this collection are butch or masculine Identifed people, and this is disappointing considering not all lesbians are butches and certainly not all top/doms/switches are either. I think this book would be more aptly titled "queer Bdsm erotica" since it has more of a focus on gender play than any other kink in general (to the extent gender play is even kink at all, I always thought of it as vanilla since there are no implicit power roles or Even necessarily SM qualities).
Bottom line: if "sir" and "daddy" are turn offs for you, don't get this book!
If you find butch/femme dynamics tired and overused, don't get this book!
If you find on strap-on sex and penetration as a form of kink in erotica a turn off or tired, don't get this book!
Almost every story in this book incorporates this tired old shit.
I'm a dildo loving gender neutral butch, but honestly I could have been reading free straight Bdsm erotica with better plots and better characters.

Say Please Rocks It Out April 29 2012
By Ali Oh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
So. This book is so dirty and awesome, I can't even write about it on Amazon. Oh yes, my review has been rejected three times. If that appeals to you, buy this book and read it cover to cover. All the stories are amazing. So amazing, I can't even quote them here, because apparently that will also get me rejected. But trust me, the authors that write here are amazing and Mr. Sinclair I-Don't-Think-I-Can-Write-Their-Last-Name did a wonderful job selecting a wide range of characters, authors, and scenarios. They are like King Midas: Everything they touch turns to gold.

I will also tell you that these pieces don't all fall into my standard definition of what we would normally call B, followed by the letters D, S, and finally M (apparently I can't write that down either, we'll see how this version goes.) So even if you wouldn't normally enjoy things pertaining to that acronym, get the book anyway. You won't regret it.

Say Please -Review July 4 2012
By Karen Blue - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Say Please is a collection of lesbian BDSM erotica. The Introduction is written by the editor and contributing author Sinclair Smith. This is her first full length anthology. She was a contributing author of one of my favorite erotica anthologies, Take Me There. This book is all about control, exchanges of power, sex and gender.

The 23 contributing authors include some names I am familiar with and some who are new to me.
As I think about the collection of stories a few surprised me with the direction it took. These are not the lesbians I would imagine. They are strong and strange in their gender bending. I was a bit surprised to find that almost every Dom in this book had a "cock" of some sort. There was very few Doms who made their subs serve them orally without it. Most of the characters in this book wield cocks and get off on pain (giving or receiving). In some stories the gender shifts enough that I forget what the players originally were. The story Strong had me so confused when she says "my submissive is both my girl and my boy". I forgot what's what and just tried to go with it. This story made me feel alienated. There is a place that gender doesn't matter, I just don't know how to get there no matter how sexy it seems.

Some of the stories were so very sexy. A Slap in the Face was a story that really appealed to me. Jade and Amber love to make a public spectacle of their power exchange. They push the limits by shocking a bar full of people with their almost "taboo" exchange of power. Hot sex on the edge of getting caught in an alley, I loved it!

Coming of Age was a trio of fun. Barely legal, a girl wants the attention of a Dom and the experience of playing. She wasn't expecting the competition of the full-time sub already there. This story is told from the perspective of the Dom. I loved how this book told stories from both angles. Unworthy As I Am was written from the sub's point of view. This story told of wanting to please by being submissive enough. The sub thinks back on the relationship and then she gets her hearts desire in this tale of becoming worthy.

My favorite tale was Not Without Permission. This story was almost equal in it's exchange of power. This story was written from the Doms perspective but showed such care and consideration for the sub, I was completely smitten by the TPE. The writing in this suggests some one who knows how to Dom and doesn't miss the small details of her sub's reality. "You said I could..." She hesitates. "You said I could come tonight." The timing is everything in this story.

This book is not for those looking for "lipstick lesbians" whipping each other into orgasms, (as fun as that sounds...). This book is about the exchange of power between women, women who take on the form of what ever they want in the relationship. From my perspective it was a bit out of my comfort zone in some places. Shouldn't fantasy be that way though? Pushing us to imagine a world where anything can happen.

Say "Yes" to "Say Please" May 13 2012
By Ginger Lou - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Editor & contributors to "Say Please," deliver a panorama of dirty lusty deliciousness leaving you salivating and page turning with your one free hand.

This book will make you come. Together, alone, in groups. Finally, there is name to the nameless and an insiders answer to an erotic world of Lesbian BDSM. The book sets the stage with a brief introduction of what it means to partake in BDSM play, but the individual stories themselves define how many varieties this kind of play comes in. There are a myriad of ways that power play can manifest itself and "Say Please," takes you there.

Wendi Kali's "First Ride" speaks directly to my delicate girly heart, as power/foreplay are illustrated through everyday activities. Any moment or action is an opportunity to play up gender and sexuality, and this piece shows us the humility and energy that is Daddy/girl.

In "A Slap in the Face," the ultimate side of shame brought blood closer to my skin as Rachel Kramer Bussel delivers humiliation with a public alley slapping. What dirty girl doesn't want to be taken in an alley?!

"Housewife," takes gender role stereotypes and makes them porn. Gigi Frost shares the push/pull that comes from allowing someone to control/own/dominate you as an ultimate form of empowerment. Playing on the primal aspects of nitty gritty sex and desire, meshed together with the dynamics that gender roles/politics play...in this conflict, the cognition is what leads to the coming.

Each selection in "Say Please," takes fantasies, musings and ideas a step further as the writers share their points of view. This collection gives a voice to kinky queers and validates what we already knew...we know how to get it on.

Will read again and again April 17 2012
By smd - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Sinclair Sexsmith has compiled an amazing group of stories; I could not put this book down. One of the most compelling characteristics of this anthology, at least to me, were how dynamic and well-rounded all of them were. I felt as though each story was a peek into somebody else's bedroom (or bar...or alleyway...or living room...). The authors created relateable, likeable characters, which made the stories that much hotter. There are some I know I will return to again and again, such as "Housewife" and "Black Hanky." While there are common themes that run throughout the anthology, such as Daddy/girl play and strap-ons, there are stories that appeal to all tastes. Even pieces that didn't appeal to my particular kinks were hot - while I personally wouldn't want to recreate "Purge," I still enjoyed the story and appreciated the complexities of power and trust that it raised. I highly recommend this book!
