Bound by lust - book by Cleis Press Inc. - review by Waterfall

Bound by the words in these stories...

Bound by Lust is a collection of sensual erotica with a BDSM focus edited by Shanna Germain. This collections really shows the romance and communication that takes place in BDSM relationships and not just the control and submission. I highly recommend you get this one!

useful review
Bound by Lust is a collection of erotica that focuses on the more romantic side of submission and dominance. It was edited by Shanna Germain, with a foreword by Alison Tyler. I have never read a collection edited by Shanna Germain, but the theme appealed to me and I like to try out new authors and/or editors of erotica because there is always something new and a new way of exploring my favorite subject.

Many of my (and possibly your) favorite erotica authors have stories in this book such as: Rachel Kramer Bussel, Alison Tyler, Kristina Lloyd, Kristina Wright, and Teresa Noelle Roberts to name a few.

As I mentioned this collection focuses on the more "romantic" side of BDSM. With that being said this does not mean that these stories are not intense or that they do not focus on the sex (most of them are really explicit, which I love!). I personally feel that this collection really shows the true nature of a BDSM relationship and what it takes to really make the lifestyle pleasurable and safe for all those involved.

I guess I have been having good luck with anthologies because I really liked most, if not all in some way, of the stories in this collection. I love that there are so many talented writers out there in this genre. Even though I loved the whole collection, I did have some favorites.

Being His Bitch by Janine Ashbless- a highly arousing story about pet play at a party.

Brushstrokes by Kristina Wright- a story that will have you rethinking the power of a paintbrush that has only been dipped in water.

Marcelle by Alana Noel Voth- a story about a masochistic man who feels responsible for his brother's death

Slave Sister by Vida Bailey- I loved the connection between the women who helped each other in different ways.
I really enjoyed reading this anthology, and I read it so fast because I got sucked in to each story. I highly recommend this one to people who have read many BDSM anthologies and those who want to get their feet wet. I can't say enough good things about this collection.
