Orgasmic: Erotica for Women

3.51 of 5 stars 3.51  ·  rating details  ·  78 ratings  ·  8 reviews
Orgasmic springs from a delicious idea - a book of erotica that explores every possible type of orgasm. This highly original concept could only have come from the delightfully dirty (and brilliant) mind of Rachel Kramer Bussel. Oral sensations, digital delights, tricks with toys, and the old bump and grind are all featured, along with many more imaginative ways to bring a ...more

A specific goal of this anthology was to explore a wide territory, to represent many different ways that women can achieve orgasm. It achieves this ambition with flying colors, providing plenty of solid standards with a healthy dose of more unusual fare, including orgasms from piercing, horseback riding, smells, tantric sex, and more.

I particularly appreciated the emotional complexity of many pieces in the anthology, which lifted the book far above being a simple tool for getting off. Susie Har
Rachel Kramer Bussel has collected a fine set of short stories for this anthology. The range of experiences is wide, going from vanilla to very kinky and wild. My favorites are THE WAITING GAME by Elizabeth Coldwell, CHEMISTRY by Velvet Moore, PAYING IT FORWARD by Kendra Wayne, MOON TANTRA by Teresa Noelle Roberts, and FROSTING FIRST by Lana Fox. They were very hot and stories to prep you for an evening of fun.

I love the concept - a collection of short stories about all the different ways that lead to a woman's orgasm(s). While almost all the stories were straight woman-man encounters, there was a nice range between trusted partner / stranger, and vanilla / kink. As with all collections, some were better than others. These ones were my favorites, either for uniqueness or quality of writing:

The Waiting Game - just what it sounds like
Share - a g-spot toy leads to a unique orgasmic experience

Contains two of my stories:

"All She Wanted," written as Andrea Dale

Not just for women

An exciting collection of tales to read. The one mistake I made in reading it was reading it during my lunch hour at work. At times it tested my ability to concentrate. Ms Brussel has put together a fine group of female views of their orgasms whether achieved alone or with someone. It doesn't matter if they were home or out, each story climaxes in mind blowing fun. Well worth the read.
It was an okay book

The first story was by far the best one!! But the rest of them were just ok. But that first story, hot hot hot!!!
I loved all the different stories!
