Introduction: Hungry Eyes and Sensual Show-Offs
When the stories started rolling in for "Peep Show," I was surprised to see that so many were about sex work: strippers, burlesque babes, and other professional show-offs and their customers. I had intended the title to be a sexy suggestion of the complementary fetishes of exhibitionism and voyeurism, not necessarily the main setting for the bulk of the stories. As I kept reading, though, I realized that peep shows and other forms of commercialized sexual displays are a major way we as a culture sanction the act of watching.
There s a sense of the forbidden in many of the stories you ll read here, whether money changes hands or not. There is the thrill of baring your body in exactly the place you re not supposed to, which Lolita Lopez zeroes in on with her nude campus performance art protagonist in Indecent. As Lopez writes, Trini couldn t stop herself. The risk heightened the allure. In Malcolm Ross s Sleeping Beauty, the main character catches his gorgeous wife in repose in the middle of the night, and is compelled to keep on watching. M. March gives us a poignant, moving story of being watched over from above.
As for those peep shows, there s plenty of very sexy jiggling to be seen here. Donna George Storey beautifully and, as always, utterly erotically captures a different kind of peep show in Clean and Pretty, in which an American woman in Japan soaps up in the shower, getting paid handsomely, while exulting in the one viewer who can look for free. Geneva King takes us deep inside Amsterdam s famous red-light district, or Rosse Buurt, a woman is drawn to another she sees there, a woman who stands in her window on the second story, not banging on the glass like the other girls, just standing, surveying the crowd, like she picks the customer and not the other way around, like she s deciding who is lucky enough to experience any bit of her. This is the kind of woman who sells her body in this book; one who s knowing, aware, yet can allow herself to get swept away by passion, even when she s on the clock.
Modern technology also plays a role here in the webcam-themed Audience Participation and I ve Only Got Eyes for You, where private citizens become amateur porn stars. When you think of voyeurs, you probably picture the iconic image of the Peeping Tom, and he s to be found in these pages as well, once, even wearing a trench coat. But rather than being the town creep, here the various peeping Toms (and Thomasinas) are more than just stereotypes. They see and hear things they aren t supposed to, and sometimes, as with Sommer Marsden s Jared in Satisfaction Guaranteed, they even get caught.
Neighbors, coworkers, spouses, and hotel guests all experience the power of looking, and being looked at. Even the most intimate relationships can get closer when one person opens himself up to being studied, caressed not with the hands but with the eyes. These stories honor the art of the striptease, the daring of the nudist, the boldness of the person who ll go out of her way to get more than an eyeful. I hope the sensual visions these stories create stay in your mind s eye for a long time to come.

HASH(0xa556e228) out of 5 stars Mmm...I'm wet now Dec 3 2009
By K T - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Wow, this book got me all hot and bothered. I usually watch my porn, because whenever I try to READ porn, it's predictable and mundane. I was drawn to Peep Show because a) I am both an exhibitionist and a voyuer, and b) it's mostly written by women. I'm a woman myself, so the book made it easy to mentally step into the authors' shoes and enjoy the erotic ride myself.

Each Peep Show story is creative and...well, if they're not real, the authors sure fooled me. My two favorite tales take you on vacation. One to Berlin, where a woman takes her husband to a glass hotel. The outside wall is one huge window, allowing crowds of passerby watch your every move. The married couple check into their room, and promptly put on a heated, live performance, ending with the husband exploding all over the glass, for everyone to see.

My second favorite story takes you to Amsterdam's red light district, where hookers are fully on display. The author, a woman, gets so turned on by one hooker that she hires her and has an incredible time.

Peep Show is HOT. I only suggest that you read it in a place where you can "get off" easily. I started reading it while on a bus. I got very wet and excited, but I wasn't about to touch myself with an old lady next to me. lol

HASH(0xa556e27c) out of 5 stars Can I take a peek? No? I'm taking one anyway... Oct. 19 2009
By Jason Frost - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Let's be honest... we ALL love to watch. It can be a car accident, a juggling street performer, a nasty hit in a football game, some eighty pound model eating it on the runway, and especially sex. There's a reason porn is so prevalent on the internet. People doing all sorts of crazy sexy things that we would NEVER indulge in. Right? (right)? We're either too scared to try it or don't have the right partner to try it, but we will watch someone else try it. Especially if that person is doing the ONE thing we wish we could do: have crazy-off-the-wall-butt-naked-sweat-like-a-snowcone-in-South Carolina-August-heat sex!!

Everyone loves to watch and everyone DOES watch. This sexy collection tells both sides of the story. I loved this collection because the sex was everywhere and so were the opportunities to watch. I mean really, is there anything that gets our blood pumping faster than watching someone get the ultimate pleasure? No, not really. `Peep Show' takes us into the world of both people who love to see and people who love to be seen. This is a very, very sexual collection and will arouse your emotions and your physical self. It's not unusual to reread your favorite stories in a collection, but is it normal to memorize them? :-) Ah well... either way Rachel does another superb job of picking the perfect stories to go in this sultry, red hot, voyeuristic collection.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book.

Here are my Top 5:

Showtime by Susan St. Aubin
Busted by Kissa Starling
Indecent by Lolita Lopez
I've Only Got Eyes for You by Rachel Kramer Bussell
Missing Michael by M. March

HASH(0xa64624bc) out of 5 stars Do not read alone - B.O.B. or significant other required! Aug. 1 2010
By AJBestWrites - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I absolutely loved Clean and Pretty by Donna George Storey. I have read this story at least 3 times and one of those was out loud to my fiance. I'm not sure that he was as wowed as I was, but I don't think he has the same 'fantasies' that I have in this realm. I really enjoyed Jenny in this story, you could literally pull her tension and desire right off the pages and take them on yourself. You wanted what she wanted, you needed what she needed, and you were very satisfied when she finally gets what she deserves.

'People in Glass Hotels by Jennifer Peters....**sigh**. Though short in pages, it was NOT short in hottness and character. I wanted to be with her and her husband in Berlin to watch as her fantasy finally came to fruition. I would have loved to trade places with them as well. I will say that I wish I had just a little bit more insight into her husband's mind. Felix seemed like a guy that I would like to get to know a little better and I would have loved if Ms. Peters would have given me more. (But you know me, I want it ALL!)

We are all dirty minded folks if we allow ourselves to admit it, so when I read Busted by Kissa Starling I saw so much of what I would LOVE to do right there in front of me. You could tell that Ms. Starling has her finger on the pulse of people's wants, desires, and fantasies. Lydia and Andy instantly became people that I wanted to know, people that I wanted to hang out with on a regular basis! I enjoyed feeling every touch, every pulse, and snubbing my nose at the prudes. Wonderful read all around.

HASH(0xa556e504) out of 5 stars So many incredible approaches to the theme! Oct. 26 2009
By Erotic Elf - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The magnificent storytellers in this delicious collection, edited by the gifted Rachel Kramer Bussel, found so many ways to excite and delight me--approaching the voyeurism/exhibitionism theme in all sorts of incredible ways. Cheyenne Blue, Elizabeth Coldwell, Andrea Dale, and Craig J. Sorensen are a few of the justly celebrated names you'll see in the table of contents.

In "Clean and Pretty," Donna George Storey guided my gaze through complex layers of observation, passion, artifice, and authenticity. Malcolm Ross's "Sleeping Beauty" charmed and aroused me with its gentle and witty portrait of a tender fetish, while L. A. Mistral's "Theory of Orchids" surprised me at every turn with its dreamlike, delirious action and elegantly quirky style. Lolita Lopez, author of "Indecent," connected with this reader from the get-go by presenting a math major who likes to dress up as the Mad Hatter and expose herself; and Sommer Marsden's "Satisfaction Guaranteed" was a concentrated dose of erotic dynamite. Geneva King's "Rosse Buurt" tingled with wistful sweetness and delicate emotion, and "Calendar Girl," by Angela Caperton, was a hot, heartwarming, and unforgettably original adventure.

As you can see, there's so much here to savor!

HASH(0xa556e744) out of 5 stars Look at me, look at me! Oct. 19 2009
By wetfood - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I am more of a voyeur than an exhibitionist. As a professional photographer, that's par for the course. I wasn't expecting to be so turned on by reading Rachel Kramer Bussel's *Peep Show,* but I was. Very aroused. It's spicy-hot and filled with all sorts of uninhibited tales of looking and being looked at. Oodles of sexy stories by some masters in the field (Donna George Storey, Craig J. Sorensen) and some authors I'd not yet become familiar with (Angels Caperton, Lolita Lopez).

Lopez's "Indecent" was a revelation -- it combined all the elements necessary to get ya going. Also very hot, Andrea Dale's "Now You See Her," and M. March's sweet tale "Missing Michael."

The book's got a beautiful glossy cover (thanks to Cleis Press) and a blurb from one of my favorite authors, Audacia Ray. If it's good enough for her, it's good enough for me. And will be for you, too.
