"Most people seem to think bisexual women have a magical ability to have their cake and eat it, too. This perception makes them sometimes the most hated and other times the most lusted after sexual group under the rainbow." This sentence starts the introduction to this wonderful collection of erotic short stories that feature bisexual female characters in a variety of settings and situations. The stories are all alluringly erotic and there is truly something here for everyone.

"Triptych" by Helena Settimana ~ An exploration of a woman's life and three stops on the path to her true sexuality.
"Double Down" by Esther Haas ~ Karen and Greg have just been married in Las Vegas and nothing is as it seems when Karen supposedly is shopping and Greg is playing poker.
"The Smell of It" by Thea Hillman ~ A woman helps her girlfriend, firefighter Casey, get off with dirty talk of a wet and sweaty fantasy of the guys watching Casey work out.
"Scenes from Thailand" by Rachel Resnick ~ A woman visits Bangkok and Phuket with her male partner and spends a short time with a Laos whore.
"Happy Loving Couple Makes It Look So Easy" by Susan Coss ~ A bisexual woman and her gay best friend enjoy the benefits of being "married" while on vacation in Cabo.
"Night on Twelfth Street" by Marilyn Jaye Lewis ~ A woman who turns tricks with uptown men is trapped between the violent man in her bed and the woman that comes to see her when she's clean.
"Surrender Dorothy" by Lisa Archer ~ A woman arranges to have her "straight" friend's fantasy come true, to help her come out once and for all.
"Party of One" by Elisa Tanner ~ A lesbian's partner sets up the ultimate fantasy for her involving anonymous sex.
"What She's Worth" by Michelle Scalise ~ Karen unknowingly plays a role in a woman's dangerous sexual game.
"Hands" by Ariel Hart ~ A manicurist uses her hands to satisfy female and male clients with a special service.
"Hilary's Swank on Billy the Kid" by Lana Gail Taylor ~ Cass is a singer and Keifer plays guitar and the two members of separate bands finally get together and share their sexual pasts.
"Go" by Jen Collins ~ Murphy's girlfriend sees the look in her eyes and lets Murphy go to a gay bar to snag a boy for hot anonymous sex.
"Extracurriculars" by Joy VanNuys ~ A culinary student sits and talks with her fellow students about men versus women while flashing to her past encounters with both.
"Full Service" by Erica Dumas ~ A girl turning tricks catches sight of a man who makes her contemplate breaking the rules that Janice demands.
"Thwack!" by Lynn A. Powers ~ A polyamorous phone sex operator has two relationships at one time and addresses some perceived infidelity by using one partner against the other.
"Hair Club for Bisexuals" by Carol Queen ~ A bisexual swinger's sexual escapades in reference to hair.
"The Devil Is a Squirrel" by Astrid Fox ~ A woman who hasn't had sex in six years, six months and six days meets the devil in an alley.
"Leaving the Past" by Nine Declare ~ Meeting a woman named Lisa helps Terra to leave the past behind and focus on the future.
"On the Care and Feeding of White Boys" by R. Gay ~ A lesbian couple decides to find a white boy to use as a sex toy.
"The Year of Fucking Badly" by Susannah Indigo ~ A research librarian attempts to investigate whether "bad sex" is a reality or just an urban legend.

This is an excellent anthology of erotic stories, focusing on a spectrum on the gay rainbow that is so often overlooked. Here we have women with both women and men, some in relationships and some not, some at the same time and others not. This easily could have fallen into the typical stereotypes or misconceptions of bisexual women, but each story is fresh and unique. It is fascinating that with one central idea, these twenty authors have come up with sinfully sexy stories that cover a wide range of emotions. Several are quite funny ("The Devil Is a Squirrel," "On the Care and Feeding of White Boys" and "The Year of Fucking Badly") while a few are decided dark and disturbing ("Scenes from Thailand" and "Night on Twelfth Street"), but all have a wickedly erotic vein. This anthology offers some of the most erotic stories I have ever read, no matter the sexuality of the characters, including "Party of One," "Go," "Full Service," "Leaving the Past" and "The Year of Fucking Badly."

This is one of the best anthologies I've read and I highly recommend it for anyone who is open to all types of sexuality. The stories all include bisexual characters but the brilliance is that being bisexual isn't the focus of the stories. These tales aren't an analysis of what it is to be bisexual, they are simply well written short stories with solid characters that are sexually open and embracing of others. It begins with a fantastic introduction by editor Cara Bruce, who has done a phenomenal job selecting these stories, and just keeps getting better and better. Bruce says it best in her anthology when describing the collection, "In this book, as in the ideal world, anything goes."
