Product summary and comments by petite-n-sweet


Although reading Orgasmic wasn't very orgasmic for me, it was a great introduction to erotica. Since it has multiple authors and topics, for every story I did not enjoy there was one that I did. I was expecting something a bit more explicit, and was disappointed by a few stories which seemed to be more romance novel than erotica. Orgasmic was not the most arousing, but every short story was at least thought provoking.

    petite-n-sweet's opinion
    Orgasmic is a rich collection of erotic short stories by multiple authors. At first I thought a compilation like this might be hard to follow because each writer would have their own tone and style. This was not the case with Orgasmic, Erotica for Women. Edited by Rachel Kramer Bussel, all of the stories flowed together as if written by one author, while each story maintained its own unique appeal.

    The authors in this book are:

    Jacqueline Applebee
    Neve Black
    Rachel Kramer Bussel
    Angela Caperton
    Heidi Champa

    petite-n-sweet's opinion
    Orgasmic is a collection of short stories about how different women achieve their orgasm. It is written in a conversational style, sort of like having your best female friend tell you about her recent 'sex-capades.' The book is subtitled Erotica for Women because each tantalizing short story is told by a women and is designed to excite a woman's mind.

    This book is made up of 25 short stories that are varied enough to satisfy most people's taste, each ending in some sort of orgasmic bliss. The stories range from 5 to 10 pages each, and touch on couples, fetish, BDSM, spanking, lesbian, voyeurism, forced orgasms with toys, and fantasy and roleplay.

    Orgasmic is not illustrated, but with a decent amount of imagination most readers should be able to visualize the stories. One thing I noticed, (which may be the case in most erotica) is that while I could imagine the locations and even the body parts of the people involved in the sex acts, there wasn't much description about the physical appearance of the characters in the stories. That was important to me because I don't really like to focus on the hair color of the main character or her body build.

    petite-n-sweet's opinion
    This is my first erotica book, and I felt like it was a great introduction to adult fiction. It was difficult for me to find time to read the book, so the fact that it is broken up into short stories was extremely helpful for me. Most nights I would read a couple stories and then go to bed only to have sweet dreams.

    petite-n-sweet's opinion
    For me, The book was most useful for discussion with my partner on what we find alluring. Stories such as Chemistry by Velvet Moore, which talked about one woman's fascination with scientists and the surprise sexual encounter she has with the chemist working at her office, were fun to discuss with my significant other. Most of the stories were more thought provoking than arousing.

      Orgasmic is an erotic anthology edited by Rachel Kramer Bussel that focuses on women having orgasms. There is some pretty good variety in the stories and I think that most people will enjoy it. If you like a collection that features only really intense erotica or that has more variety in the sexual orientations of the characters then it might not be the best one for you.
