Leather, caning, stockings and ass fucking!

This is a great female submission book with plenty of bondage thrown in. However, as in my case, it would probably be better for the male dominant instead of the male submissive. It was still well written and fun to read, and I got an erection numerous times while reading it.

About author

There are 22 total authors in this book. The final author and editor of the book is Rachel Kramer Bussel. This is the third book that I have read by her, and it was my least favorite. Not because the writing was bad, but just because of the subject matter. I just didn't enjoy some of the stories as much as the others, I guess that's the sub in me.

Content / Style / Audience

Out of the 22 stories in the book, only one is a non-hetero couple. It doesn't quite describe it, but one appears to be male while the other appears to be somewhat trans-gender. That story is "Masochist on Vacation". Reading the first few stories, I was somewhat disappointed after having just read Please, Ma'am. It might be because I am more of a sub myself, but the first few stories I just couldn't imagine doing myself. Looking back at the stories now, they don't seem horrible in any way, but I just didn't enjoy them quite as much as I thought I would. But all of the stories center around women submitting to men. Some of the women top from the bottom, in which case they provoke their masters to get in trouble, where others are just happy to please their masters. There is even one story in which an older domme submits to a younger one, and it was quite enjoyable.

Design

After having received my second and third book by Rachel Kramer Bussel, I noticed that they were all the same size. This made it very nice for storage in my nightstand drawer. The book is softback, and is a nice size at 5.5 inches by 8 inches. In total it is 213 pages long. There is a short introduction, with a few pages of information about the authors and about Rachel in the back. The shortest story was 5 pages long, and the longest was 14 pages long. The front cover has a woman in a red corset with a short skirt on, with "Please, Sir" in big lettering across the front. This is the same image on the back, except this one is a closer up image of her corset.

Personal comments

I don't know if I would go back and read this book over story by story, but I will definitely be reading it again. And there were a few stories which I really enjoyed.

"Knot Here" by Yolanda West is about a couple on the way to his parents for a celebration. They make a pit stop on the way at a local diner, but they aren't just getting food. After visibly tying her wrists together in plain sight of the waitress, they head behind the diner and find a hook. They have some more fun with each other, and on the way to their car, they bump back into their waitress.

"A Night at the Opera" by Evan Mora starts with the female seated at a nice restaurant waiting for her partner. After he shows up and talks with the hostess, he sits down across from his partner. All she wants is to feel his touch, but he is denying her. Eventually she goes to the bathroom, where he surprises her, but doesn't satisfy her. And all during the opera, she is fidgeting, but he ignores her still. Eventually he orders her to orgasm during the opera, and she happily complies. They then make it back to his penthouse, where the fun continues.

"Stroke" by Lisabet Sarai is about a doctor who is in the hospital for a stroke. He engages in conversation with his nurse, and discovers that she wants to submit. Because of his limited mobility, he can only do so much, but with his strong voice he orders her around and they both end up having an orgasm. And all through their fun, the Dr. is telling her what he is going to do to her once he is all better.

"Walking the Sub" by Salome Wilde shows a day in the life of a sub and her master. After deciding that he is going to leash his sub and take her for a walk, the only article of clothing that he gives her is a shirt. First he has her go get the newspaper on the driveway, and in which he fingers her ass right at the main road. Then he drives her to a park, which during the car ride she engages with another dog. Then at the park, he takes her into the woods on a trail to play with her even more. After she is fully naked, he tells her to go meet the local fishermen. Boy where they in for a surprise! I really enjoyed this story, and it had me laughing a few times.

My favorite story was "Mommy's Boy" by Doug Harrison. The story starts after a male domme has just finished with a male client. As he is talking to the female domme that set up their meet, she expresses her interest in being taken by him. He gladly complies. The story was very hot, from her outfit, to forcing her over a leather sawhorse, to caning her ass. But the fun doesn't stop there. It continues with her having an orgasm before he fucks her in the ass in which they orgasm together.

Experience

Overall, I enjoyed this book, but not as much as Please, Ma'am. I ordered these two books together hoping to get some ideas for play with my wife, especially this one because she likes it when I am in charge. Unfortunately, the book was too aggressive sometimes, and there was too much public play, which I don't think my wife and I would ever do. I maybe got a few ideas here and there, but for the most part it was just reading for me. I just wish they could make porn like this, because I had some really good images in my head as I read, and I would love to see it on tv.
Follow-up commentary
Out of the 4 erotic books that I have read so far, this along with Please Ma'am, and Best Bondage Erotica 2011 and 2012, this has been my least favorite. Reading back over my review, I don't really get the sense that I truly enjoyed it, where I would want to go sit back down and read it again. I have other books and movies that I would believe would give me more pleasure. Once again, that is probably the sub in me.

    I'm not personally a fan of any sort of dominant/submissive play, but I still enjoyed reading your review, you were very detailed and observant, and didn't let the fact that it involved a reversal of the roles that you prefer get in the way of giving an objective review. Awesome job!
