I Love Girls On Top (*wink*)

Girls on Top is a hot, erotica book intended for women. In the 216 page book, there are 19 different stories. All of the stories are of a good length, have amazing storylines, and develop the storyline really well before delving into hot sex.
Good variety of stories, plot-focused, longer stories, amazing good storylines
Nothing. I wish the book was longer.

extremely useful review
Girls On Top is an erotica book published by Cleis Press with the tag line "Explicit Erotica for Women". It's 215 pages long and includes 19 different stories. This means that each story averages at over twenty pages which is much longer than most erotica books. The editor of this collection is Violet Blue. The erotica book has the same style and format as most of the Cleis Press erotica novels. The front of the book has a relatively discreet cover. It shows a black/white blurred picture of a woman sitting on top of a man with a smile on her face. The title is in large letters, but the tag line is relatively small. The backside shows the girl laughing close-up with the explanation of the book. The covers are relatively discreet compared to most erotica. At first glance, another person would not know this was erotica - they would think it was a regular book. As long as you are careful not to leave the cover in view for too long, you should have no problem reading this in public.

The theme of this book is women going after what they'd like. All of the stories show a woman going after what she'd like in an erotic and exciting manner. Most of the stories in this collection are longer in nature, and unlike some other erotic novels, most of the stories in this book do have quite a bit of plot behind them. Because of the length, it just wouldn't make sense for twenty pages of sex. However, some of the stories do include multiple instances of sex.

The stories are mostly heterosexual. There are a couple stories that are homosexual in nature, but I think I only remember just the one story that was homosexual. However, quite a few of the stories were multiple-partner stories. I think there were at least four stories that included multiple partners - usually just threesomes.

I actually found myself pretty enthralled by the stories in this collection. Not only were they erotic, each story had a good storyline. Some of the stories had a BDSM-aspect with a Mistress while most of the stories just had regular women who got into woman-in-charge positions. Each one of the stories is well-written and includes some hot sex. The sex isn't described in a crass manner, but instead, in an erotic and sensual manner in all of the stories.

One of the most creative stories in this collection was the first story in the collection entitled "The Hostage" by B.J. Franklin. In it, a security guard is guarding a bank that has been tipped off to be robbed the next day. When she shows up to work, everything is weird - all of the other security guards and staff are having passionate sex with one another. It turns out that the woman is immune to the "poison", but she plays along with the robbers to try and save the bank.

"Central Registry" by Remittance Girl was pretty hot as well. It's about a woman who, every week on the same day, is bothered by two door-to-door religious-men. One day, she chooses to seduce them instead. Maybe it's just all of the anti-religious puns or something, but this one was really hot!

In "Erica's John" by Erica K., a cross dressing, submissive male comes to his Mistress to find out that she's arranged for him to show off his cock sucking skills that he's been perfecting. When the Mistress says that she's going to be watching from the other room, the cross dresser is made to be a "whore" on a random man that the Mistress has brought in. It ends in a great, surprising conclusion, and the cross dresser's mindset honestly reminded me of my boyfriend.

In "Philosophy Class" by Tamara Rogers, a woman answers the phone to hear a male voice, and when (what she thinks is) her boyfriend starts into phone sex, they both get into it. At the end, when they attempt to save "I love you" to each other, it turns out that they both thought they were another person.

The collection really was a hot collection. The stories focused nicely on the plots which is something I feel is missing from other collections. I didn't find a single story inside of this book that was unarousing. Some weren't as arousing as others, but they all were still arousing and enjoyable. I'd highly recommend the book to anyone who thinks they'd enjoy a good plot and good romance. Even though it's marketed as erotica for women, I can easily see men enjoying this book as well.
Follow-up commentary
I still like the book just fine, but I just don't remember much about it to be honest. It's a good book with good stories (I think because I rated it 5 stars), but at the same time, it also doesn't stand out in my mind as something I'd want to reread. I just don't remember any of the stories as being amazingly unique, so I haven't picked up the collection since I first read it.

    The stories sound interesting, I am more girl on girl or queer as opposed to heterosexual sex but the ideas sound creative. 'Erica's John' sounds good!
