I'll Happily Request Permission

This is an eclectic and interesting mix of stories. I would recommend this to anyone who is interested in a little taste of many different types of fetish. I would not recommend this to someone who is only interested in light impact play or light restraint play.
Published:
Pros:
Well-chosen stories. Very relatable material for me. Wide variety of fetishes featured.
Cons:
Some stories might not suit those who do not enjoy more niched BDSM power exchanges.

Please, Sir, comes to us from Cleis Press. The book is edited and introduced by Rachel Kramer Bussel. It contains 22 stories, all from different authors and all with different levels of kink. The book is excellently bound and features a voluptuous, classically attractive woman in a corset on the front. I would not call the cover discreet, nor would I say it's blatant. It's classy, in my opinion.

This volume is a wonderful collection of stories of female submission and they are all told from the female perspective, which made it very easy to relate to the stories. All the pairings are, it would seem at least, male and female. I say, "it would seem," because sometimes gender is a mental thing: a state of mind. Especially since the stories are told from the submissive's point of view, it's possible that the submissive sees the dominant person as a man. However, I doubt very much that any of the stories have taken on that level of depth. But you can think of it that way if it works for you. If you were hoping for any open gender bending or perhaps a man-on-man scene, you will be disappointed. However, if you love BDSM stories, you will enjoy this a great deal.

Some of these stories are not for the faint of heart, but some stories are very tame and can be enjoyed by anyone. Some stories, obviously, will stick out more than others just depending on how you like your kink. There are stories of bondage. Stories of suspension. Humiliation. Choking. Pet play. Whatever your pleasure, you'll likely find it here!

One story that I really liked was "The Sub Fairy", by Mercy Loomis. This story featured a woman, at a costume party, who was submitting publicly and no one knew. I really liked the quiet publicity of her submission. The way he kept a possessive hand on her back the whole time she sat at his feet was very sexy and exuded the image of safety and care in BDSM; which is one of my favorite components of the power exchanges. Here's a little excerpt:

The idea of making myself little more than an ornament for his costume, a living accessory, got me frighteningly wet. I didn't understand the appeal, I truly didn't, but after months of muttering, "I don't know why I like this, but I do," I accepted it without question. I visualized that lovely silver leash and quivered, hot and aching, until it was time to go home.

The very first story of the book, "Anticipation," by Shanna Germain grabbed my attention as well because of the fact that the relationship is long-distance. The idea that anyone can have that kind of power over someone from across the country or across an ocean (as is the case in this story) is incredibly sexy. Another excerpt? Okay!

Good girl, he types, and I can almost hear the growl in it. The guttural broken sound his voice takes on when he's fucking me, and he's right on the verge of coming, trying to keep in charge of himself. The one time I can take control if I want it, pushing him over the edge with a slide of my hips or the cry of his name.

I could go on, pointing out stories that intrigued me and turned me on, but I'll just let you pick up your own copy and let you take this journey for yourself!
