The Naked Reader Book Club: Tasting Him and Tasting Her

Kristina Wright Kristina Wright
Hello there and welcome to The Naked Reader Book Club Discussion! Since June is oral sex month, tonight we're discussion Rachel Kramer Bussel's anthologies Tasting Him and Tasting Her.

If you've read one (or both) of the anthologies, please share your favorite story (or stories)! Was there a particular scene that stayed with you after you read it? A scenario you'd like to try (or coax your partner into trying)? What did you think of an anthology devoted entirely to stories about oral pleasure?

If you haven't yet read the books-- what are you waiting for?! No worries, you're welcome to join the conversation anyway. Feel free to share your favorite oral sex story, whether it's a personal experience or a favorite scene from a book or movie.

So tell me, dear readers, what puts the "OH!" in oral sex for you?

Disclaimer: Your modest moderator has a story in both Tasting Him and Tasting Her. You could say I have a bit of an oral fixation!

Since I have stories in both books, I will open up the discussion with my favorite oral sex scene from a movie. It's from Dangerous Beauty, which was based on the true story of 16th century Venetian courtesan Veronica Franco. Trust me, it isn't what you think. link

That looks like a great movie, makes me want to watch the rest of it. How funny that the wives couldn't even watch her little demonstration.


As far as a favorite story... ha, one of my favorites from Tasting Her ended up being "Hold On, I'm Coming" (for those who don't know, it's one of the two written by Kristina). I now have my Otis Redding and friends playlist in heavy rotation on the iPod and a new appreciation the sounds of Motown!

Aw, thanks, Laurel!

True story about "Hold On, I'm Coming": My inspiration was the Motown soundtrack playing at Starbucks that particular month. I kept hearing those same old favorites playing day after day and I started thinking how suggestive the titles and lyrics were-- or could be, if one had a dirty mind.

So glad you enjoyed it!

So let's talk some ORAL! The two selection we are talking about tonight... are the erotic fiction? Are they novels or are they books with editing stories from a variety of authors? These are two selections I have not been graced with reading yet!

The "OH" for me is... when my man goes down on me, he always teases me. I am not exactly sure if he means to or not. Most of the time I believe he is aimed at getting me off. But I am quiet. I don't talk really or give any direction. So he has no idea when he hits the "right" spot. I let him continue teasing my clit until eventually I explode. It's is an orgasm that is like no other.

HOw's it hangin' chickadees? Thought I'd jump in and see what this discussion was all about. I haven't had the opportunity to read either of the books either, but they're definitely on my reading list.

Hi Splendwhore! Welcome! Do you have a naughty story for us? What do you like about oral sex?

Oral sex is a difficult subject for me. I enjoy it, but sometimes it just feels too intense. When my partner goes down on me, I can only take it for a few minutes before my body starts to convulse and I feel just-- out of control. I love it, and at the same time, sometimes I can't stand that feeling. Lol. It's a complicated relationship.

Like in my review, I still am going to have to say that one of the most amusing stories for me in Tasting Him was probably Prego. Not so much arousing, but it was just so *out* there that it was enjoyable to read.

I am sitting back laughing right now. Even the ladies in the 16th century knew how to do it. I will have to check this movie out as well. It looks like a great one.

I understand you completely. I don't think it is just you either. I get the same sensations. I have told my partner about my "tickle spot." That is the best way I can describe it. It feels so good, almost too good. And it down right just tickles and I can't handle the intensity. I have told my partner exactly where mine is and he avoids that area for me, unless he is feeling spiffy anyway. lol

Most awkwardly suggestive song ever is probably a children's one to me. I think it was meant this way, and the boyfriend things I'm insane: "Ghostbusters". I mean c'mon, "Busting makes me feel good". Can it get anymore obvious?

Prego? Please do tell more. I think I have an idea of where this is going. lol Can you highlight the plot for us? I haven't been able to read it yet.

Really? What made that particular story "out there" to you? I haven't read the book so I was just hoping for a brief synopsis, no in depth explanations here, please. I still really want to read these books, just curious what some of the stories are like!

Basically, a girl is hosting a dinner party with friends and plans on making spaghetti with the last bottle of Prego spaghetti sauce they have. She walks into the kitchen to find her partner using the Prego as a masturbation sleeve. It's just hilarious.

Kristina may I ask... do you have entries in both books or one? Which one? And what are the titles of your entries? Are they based on real life experiences of fiction in the fantasy of your mind? Please do share.

It was great. The author (Violet Blue, I think) even went far enough after the oral sex to make it believable. Like what they did about dinner since their dinner guests were waiting for food. I appreciated that since I love my erotica to be realistic.

I am very much in the same boat. While I love giving, I have a very hard time receiving. I think most of it is a matter of intensity, but also my brain has a mental block of that being the most intimate surrender I could offer another person. Of all the positions or variations I enjoy, my receiving oral is the only one that cuts through any type of physical enjoyment and really strips me down to a level of complete vulnerability. This is a place I am not very comfortable to be in, so I rarely can stand it.

[/end sappy love-making music]

I have better oral skillz in my mouth, anyway.

I would say so. I wonder where on earth they came up with something like that. lol. I would have to say it must be from experience. Absolutely Insane!

When I saw the title of that story, right before I started reading I was thinking it was about something else entirely. But, I really did enjoy that one too. I am a huge fan of the food scene from 9 1/2 weeks so this was somewhat reminiscent of that for me.

I've never been a big fan of food play in real life, as the mess tends to be more of a pain than the fun is quite worth...but in my head... yum!

I dunno if it had to be from experience. I've looked at some odd things before and just like "I wonder how I could use this for sex." It makes an amusing game with friends honestly. Like a pitcher of Kool-Aid. Or a stuffed animal. Or a calendar.

I think you really struck gold there with the vulnerability aspect of it too! That's definitely a part of it that makes receiving oral difficult sometimes.

I know! We are completely vulnerable in this position. I still remember all the trials I have been through. At first, for the longest time, I swear I was unable to come. And it wasn't lack of my partner's enthusiasm in any way. I just over thought it too much, and probably prevented myself from coming. Why is it so hard for us women to just lay back and enjoy oral? I swear lesbians have it figured out! Anyway, eventually I learned to just relax, lay back, and enjoy what I was receiving. Now I can come and it is very amazing indeed!
