Welcome to the Naked Reader Book Club! The amazing Sacchi Green will be our host this evening. Tonight's discussion should be a lot of fun!

G Is For Games

Edited by Alison Tyler

Feeling lucky? Games of skill and games of chance are rife with sexual possibilities. The back-and-forth pull of competition, the clever feint that lets your opponent think he’s got the upper hand, the thrill of risking everything on a sudden, bold gambit, the visceral charge of raking in a pile of chips, and then, of course, there’s something to be said for cheating… From light-hearted party games to devilishly simple competitions, here are stories for readers who love to play.


Whether you've read the book or not, everyone is welcome to join the Naked Reader Book Club discussion! If you have had a chance to read G is for Games, feel free to drop in and give us your opinion on the stories in the collection and the book overall.

I'm glad I read this one first. I really like this one, has to be my favorite short collection so far. I liked all of the stories in it. Normally there are one or two I can live without. I was truly impressed by this one. My first 5 star on a book.

Here's Alison Tyler's introduction to G Is for Games. Early birds can chew on this until we get going at 8.


Gambling isn’t something I’m especially good at. Yet I do love a good bet, and I’ve been told that I have a poker face to be proud of. Sure, I adore the rush of the unexpected win, pulling in the pile
of chips with glee. But truthfully, I’m not that bad of a loser. It’s the excitement of playing that turns me on.
Maybe that’s why I like stories about games so much. The give- and-take. The way a player can lose the upper hand in a heartbeat, as in Kristina Wright’s savagely sexy “Seven Minutes in Heaven”:
“Getting tied up should be a prelude to good, kinky sex, not a drunken party game. Unfortunately, this was one party game that had gone horribly wrong. What had sounded like a good idea when they were all doing shots of tequila in the kitchen, laughing and brushing up against each other, seemed like a very, very bad idea when one was tied up and sitting in a dark closet. Tied up and blindfolded. Burke squirmed in the chair and tested his bonds.
No deal—they weren’t budging.”
Some games have rules only one player understands, as in Bonnie Dee’s “Showtime”:”I used to play a game that let me walk on the wild side without actually doing anything too wild. Although in my late twenties, when I put on my old high school uniform and pulled my hair into pigtails, I still looked enticingly illegal. I wore that classic pleated skirt with no panties underneath, slipped my patent-leather shoes on over white bobby socks, buttoned my white Oxford shirt over my braless breasts, and strolled down to the Blue Heron Theater, where the triple-X movies were shown...”
In other games, the rules are created as the players go along, as in Brooke Stern’s “Unfinished Business”:
‘It’s your game, Sarah. I don’t even know if you want to be real.’ ‘I want to be real. I do.’ ‘Then tell me why you’re here.’ “I can’t talk about it, Alex. Just do it to me. Please just do it to me.” “Just do what, Sarah?”
Silence. The rules of the game were very strict. It was her move. Alex couldn’t move for her.”
And then, of course, there’s something to be said for cheating, as in Sheila Dare’s “Play Me”:
She’d lost the game—she’d climaxed first. But he’d cheated. He’d broken the rules and touched her.
Opening her eyes, she said with a smile, “Looks like we’re going to have to play for the best two out of three.”
So get ready, get set...are you feeling lucky? Then go....
XXX, Alison Tyler

can't wait, I need the distraction today. I haven't read this one yet, I have been trying to focus on foreign affairs for next month but I haven't been succeeding with that either lol

Just sitting here dealing with annoying buyers, why do people think neutral is bad feedback?

Because it isn't the best of the best of the best, sir!

But seriously, probably for the same reason that people here don't like getting Usefuls over EU's, lol.

He's doing well enough to be getting on my nerves. All he will watch is Matlock, The heat of the night and Walker, Texas Ranger...I think I may die lol!!! Seriously he will go to his house next week and I will be going there 2 or 3 afternoons a week to make sure his cleaning and shopping are done for the first couple of weeks. He is up and around now.

the transaction couldn't even be completed because she had a personal issue and never provided me with shipping info in time, but expects positive feedback?! You couldn't pop on the net for 2 mins and let me know your address or that you had something come up?

I would say a game but I guess the competition would make it a sport. Very fine line there.
