This is the 10th anniversary addition of the annual series The Best American Erotica. In the introduction the editor reviews past contributions, giving out many interesting statistics about the writers in the sex industry. The most *exciting* for me, of course, is the fact that as of this publication, the highest concentration of university educated writers published in the seriesr came from none other than... Brown! So much pride.

I base my star ratings on both the quality of writing within the tome as well as if I'll return to re-read parts. The 10th Anniversary edition of "Best American Erotica" fulfills that. Although a few of the excerpts were misses for me, the diverse array of stories has something (I believe) for every daring reader.

Recommends it for: adults
the best story in this is about courtney cox's personal assitant who confesses that ms. cox bleaches her rusty sheriff's badge pink.
Great, specially for role playing

A couple of noted authors contributed to this edition - Susana Kaysen (Girl, Interuppted) and Chuck Palahniuk (an excerot from Choke). Also a good one from Zane.
this is a GREAT anthology. bright has done it once again, and this year it's even better than in the past because this edition includes interviews with some BAE authors of past years, as well as some of the best of the best erotica as voted by readers. there are gay, lesbian, straight, and BDSM stories, and probably a few others that i can't think of a name for at the moment. a GREAT collection, i highly recommend it for the erotica enthusiast and the erotica 'virgin.'

Jill Soloway's story was my favorite -- had a quick pace and a fun premise.

My favorite story in this collection is

"Fucking His Wife, Four Months Pregnant With Their Third Child" (This story turns me on even though I don't want it to...damn breeders!)

Shelves: erotica
A nice collection of various tastes and a fun read. A bit heavy on S&M and homosexual content - not that I disliked it, just though it was out of proportion. The last few stories were a good ending.
