Dear Marla, His Hands, A Closer Encounter, & The Real Reason I Have Long Hair are particularly good. Within is incredible!

I truly feel sorry for the people who don't understand that great sex is 90% cerebral~

With 50 Shades becoming a overnight hit our local Waterstones (book shop) put together a table of the books with an erotic element. I have to admit I was very intreagued and ended up purchasing four different books. This was one of them.

Each story lives up to the “five minute” rule and were very easy to read. I liked some stories more than I liked others. Some left more to the imagination than others. On a whole the book was a really good read and there were no stories that left me feeling disap
The Center for Sexual Pleasure & Health
Composed of thirty-five short stories, at an average length of three pages each, the collection features twenty-seven contributing authors including M. Christian, Thomas Roche, Cecilia Tan, and Sage Vivant.

In the introduction, Queen states that these stories were chosen for a female heterosexual audience. While the gender of the narrators changes throughout the pieces, the stories do remain largely heterosexual. The stories themselves are rather diverse; however, they do stay on the tame side of
Just what I was in the mood for. I've been having a hard time concentrating on a book recently, too much happening in RL, so this collections of short stories was just the bedtime reading I was after :-)

4 stars for diversity

These stories can be read very quickly, in a rapid coffee break before working again for a stretch. Some stories in this collection are decent while others are just skeletons that really need to be elongated into a story that has 3000 words. I liked "Restaurant Opening," "Under the Camel Light," and "Subway." Most of the stories though,like rapid fire sex, were just uninspiring.

Meh. The stories are short, possibly too brief to get anywhere good for me. While I suppose this is to be expected with an eclectic collection, I found only two of the stories arousing, three of them, shall we say, not my taste, and the rest: just meh. Perhaps I had my expectations set a little too high for a book edited by Queen.

Fun and well written. Just what you'd want from high brow porn that can get your motor running.

This book is basically everything you don't want to read in erotica. Or in anything. Ever.
