About author

Violet Blue is a best-selling, award-winning author and editor of more than two dozen sexual health books (such as The Ultimate Guide to Fellatio, 2010 available here at Eden Fantasys) and erotica collections, including e-books and audiobooks. She has a popular website and blog at (, @violetblue). In addition to being a blogger, Violet is a Forbes "Web Celeb" and one of Wired's "Faces of Innovation," high-profile tech personality and infamous podcaster. She is regarded as the foremost expert in the field of sex. She is a pundit in mainstream media (CNN, The Oprah Winfrey Show and The Tyra Banks Show) and is regularly interviewed or quoted by other media outlets. Her podcast has been downloaded by millions of people and the notorious: "Open Source Sex" has been featured in Wired, Newsweek, (MSNBC), and the The Wall Street Journal. She is a fetish model and a San Francisco native.

In addition, some of the writers featured in Girls on Top are J. S. Frost, Tamara Rogers, Saskia Walker, Elizabeth Colvin and others. Of particular note is Maddy Stuart who has appeared in several anthologies including Dirty Girls: Erotica for Women, and Yes Sir: Erotic Stories of Female Submission. Anusha Ramkissoon-Forte is an erotic short story writer appearing in Best Women's Erotica 2008 and Yes Ma'am by Cleis Press. Her writings have also been featured in several Black Lace Wicked Words collection.

Contributing to Girls on Top are also a group of lesser-known writers. Take for example, Remittance Girl who lives in exile in Vietnam. She is a dedicated practitioner of online writing in all its forms and a cultivator of obscene orchids. There is Giselle Renarde, a Canadian eroticist, and pastry-enthusiast. She is author of The Birthday Gift (Dark Eden Press), and Love Bites (Torquere Press). Giselle lives across from a park with two bilingual cats that sleep on her head! From San Francisco is Virgie Tovar, a twenty-five-year-old sexpert, breast activist, and author of Destination DD: Adventures of a Breast Fetishist with 40DDs. Virgie leads workshops in erotic self-discovery and is a sex educator. Erica K. is the pseudonym of a Midwestern advertising executive. This is her first published story. Layla Briar is an overworked suburban hockey mom who makes a living as a writer/editor/researcher and who, in secret, is brilliant on RockBand! Last but not least, is Jana Corell, a pseudonym of a Midwestern college student who is generally pretty mellow, but occasionally dabbles in being a dominant bitch. Her story "With A Smile on Your Face" is not exactly a true story, but she didn't really make ALL of her story up, either.

Content / Style / Audience

The storylines described in this book cover new and racy themes of untamed, wild, nasty and present-day encounters of fantasy dominating female sexual promiscuity. All of the stories were well-written and allowed you to get to know the characters behind their sexual desires.

Here are summaries of a few stories that I liked.

How submissive can a NFL quarterback for the Chicago Bears be to his wife Hannah, for the first time? In S. J. Frost's "Quarterbacking" we see a sweet journey into first time girl-on-top domination. The use of restraints can uncover exquisite sexual pleasures. But with all her teasing, it will be Hannah who will experience the sharp ecstasy sparked through her clit when her orgasm hits.

In "Central Registry" we find quite a bit of humor for an erotica short story involving a party girl visited by two young Jehovah's Witnesses. But there's no 'saving' the party girl from her sinful ways - she turns the tables and executes a perfect plot to instead 'save' both boys of their virtues that we are all sinners, by performing sexual acts on them!

"Tonight, my little slut, you're going to learn to suck cock" is the first sentence in "Erica's John". Mistress Amanda will teach her new bisexual friend Eric, in this case Erica, about female fantasies of male domination. She forces him into a rough but surprising cocksucking experience with another man in submissive obedience to please Amanda's own fantasy. Erica's response, "I’ll do it good," I promised. "I’ll suck you real good, John."

In Amy Wadhams "First Time" we find two girls out on the town at a mixed night club. One girl encounters an androgynous stranger which leads to a female on female adventurous tale of sexual pleasure.

I have photographed the first page to share with you the overall flow of the storyline in this as well as other stories found in Girls on Top.

Not all tales start out with a girl in the driver's seat. In "Metamorphosis" by Anastasia Mavromatis, the protagonist has long taken the backseat to her husband. She transforms herself by being on top and between the legs of another girl, sixty-nine degrees away from her former life!

For a version of lesbianism, Giselle Renarde's "Spring Fever" spotlights a mysterious gypsy queen girl, Dotschy, caught off-guard by her attraction to a friend, Connor. She is lured by his semi-closet, trans-curious and crossed-dress conduct. With her fixation for sex, she fits a man's stereotype for direct, possessive, and competitive behavior. Within seconds, she discovers her obsession to reciprocate the role-play with a journey of a hot predatory sexual encounter with the sweet transvestite Connor.

Finally, in "High Heels" by Elizabeth Colvin we have a girl who is engaged in a game of foot fetish, taunting and teasing her boy into a froth. By the time she gets him home, he is mad with desire. With steady and deliberate control, she lets him adore her feet until it's orgasms for all. "You lick the soles of my shoes, I set my wine on the side table and my hand descends into my panties. I'm wet – gushing. My cunt throbs as I begin to rub my clit." So hot!

Those of you who read exotic or fantasy books will recognize Violet Blue. She is the editor of Girls on Top a 215 page paperback book copywriter in 2009 by Cleis Press Inc. It is comprised of 20 exotic short-stories by and for women in racy, hilarious and powerful journeys of sex. These stories are brought to you by 20 different female erotica writers, both well-known and not-so-familiar in the industry. All these stories are filled with surprises and unexpected twists. They are about 6-7 pages long, with the shortest only 3 pages and the longest 9 pages. The stories are portrayed from a first-person perspective in a girl-on-top domination seeking to break all the rules for getting off by satisfying their sexual appetite.

The title of this book caught my eye with a simple thought: to explore the world of explicit female domination. The front cover has a picture of a girl on top of her male partner enjoying the pleasures of executing her sexual fantasies. The glossy covers give sturdy support for repeated use for years to come. There is a section in the back of the book which provides a brief biography of the writers. I do not feel the front picture is as provocative as other erotica books in print. The title does not expose all the secrets found within its pages.

The back cover lists the writers found in Girls on Top together with a couple of short summaries to highlight the variety of stories found in the book.

Personal comments

I consider Violet Blue one of my favorite writers/editors. As I indicated earlier, she has several well written ultimate guide books available here at Eden Fantasys. I have found no other books on the market better than her guides to fellatio, cunnilingus and strap-on sex. If you have interests in those areas, I highly recommend them.

As for Girls on Top, the reader can easily engage in the role of the characters and experience the rush of sexual dominance, MMF threesomes, ladies in leather and dungeons and the use of whips. There were women who engaged in gripping group sex of all ages, scenes of gay males and still others who used nipple clamps to heighten the rush of arousal. The gifted authors portray sexually rapacious female protagonists with real fantasies, but also show a flawed side to their conflict in taking charge of their own sexuality.

I was pleasantly surprised to see several stories of a humorous nature. In those obvious situations, when a girl is on top and in control, there were acts of wit and teasing. Sometimes there were acts of love, but in the end it was the power of the woman taking charge to fulfill her utmost erotic fantasy.

Violet exceeded my expectations in the selection of stories she picked to create this book. It was fun for me to read and be inspired. As I have said before, reading these stories can be very captivating and definitely better than porn in so many ways. I gave this book five stars because I found all the stories appealing to a broad spectrum of readers who may differ in their sexual orientation.

I discovered women willing to dominate their sexual fantasies; to step out and take charge. Being on top and getting what you want was the underlining theme in this book.

These stories broke all the rules whether they were their own or society's rules about sex. When an assertive girl wants, takes and gets, anything is possible and the ending always feels free, light and wonderfully exhilarating! Allow me to indulge by sharing my fantasy of humor and broken rules in a story I wrote, called "Fantasy Times Two."

Fantasy Times Two

I just don’t understand what happened. I spent more than four months cultivating a business client to provide advertising services. Now it was all for naught. That's the story of my life!

"Do you want another drink William?" asked the bartender. I was sitting alone in my favorite pub, McCormick's Restaurant and Bar in downtown Seattle, lamenting over the loss of a prosperous fee for the company Wright Advertising Agency. I began to wonder if I had lost my edge, my wit, my charm, and if I was going to lose my job over this too. I already lost my longtime girlfriend because I wasn't paying enough attention to her needs during these last few months. No matter what I said or did, it didn't seem to matter to her anymore.

"Yah, give me another drink. What else do I have to lose?" I said with a sigh of despair. I leaned over to reach for the bowl of pistachios. It was late Friday night with nothing to look forward to; no plans of any kind for the weekend. I felt like shit! The bartender placed another drink in front of me. I looked up at her and gave her a half-hearted smile of thanks. I took a long gulp and just slowly closed my eyes. My mind wandered and swirled with so much uncertainty and I began to...

"Hi there, good lookin', are these seats taken?" said a sexy voice behind me. I looked around and saw a beautiful blond along with her friend. Smiles radiated from their faces. I slowly said, "No help yourself; I’m sure you’re not here to cheer me up?" They took a seat on either side of me. I began to wonder what all the attention was about. They wore very short dresses and as they sat down revealed more than just long sexy legs. Even shapelier were the long four-inch stiletto heels in red patent leather.

"My name is ah... ah... Bill. Are you girls from around here? I haven't seen you before," I said as my face reddened with growing interest. I was beginning to develop a knot of nervous anticipation forming deep inside my stomach.

"Why no, we just got off the cruise ship and are visiting Seattle for the next couple of days," said the blond. "My name is Nichole and this is Rebecca and we're from Chicago on our way to visit Alaska." "So, what are you so unhappy about Bill?" Nichole said with interest.

I bought each a drink and we spent a few minutes on small talk, but mostly I learned about their excitement to be on their first adventure cruise to the Pacific Northwest. They were so glad to leave the snow-drenched and freezing conditions of Chicago behind them. "Well, I lost a very promising client for the company I work for and now I'm not sure what to do next," I said with a sigh.

"Hey Bill, cheer up, I think we can help you forget all your woes, can't we Rebecca?" replied Nichole with a smirk. "What exactly do you have in mind?" I said with heightened interest, curiosity getting the better of me. "Let's get out of here and go to our room at the Marriott," replied Nichole.

The room was located on the tenth floor with a large king size bed set against dark mahogany walls with matching carpet. A wide open picture window overlooked the twinkling lights of the skyline of downtown Seattle. Also in the room was a large armoire against the wall as well as a table with several sex toys on top! As I looked around the room, Rebecca was in the bathroom while the other girl fluffed the pillows on the bed. "Can I help you with taking off your clothes Bill?" Nichole said with desire. Before I could respond, she yanked them off, along with my boxer-briefs. At that moment her friend came out naked, except for the four-inch stilettos, and was surprised that I took so long to realize what was about to happen!

"Let's give Bill something to watch. I think he can figure out the rest," Rebecca said with a smirk of sarcasm. "Join in when you want!" The two girls began to kiss and get it on as I too grew in desire. It was so hot to watch two girls licking and touching each other. Nichole spread Rebecca's legs wide, urging her to tilt her pelvis towards her waiting mouth. Groaning blissfully, Nichole sucked and licked her to a jerking climax. The obvious excitement now had my cock thick and erect. I moved forward, head first, to mingle with the two very beautiful hot bodies of sensual women engaged in pleasures beyond belief. Then Nichole, with a twinkle in her eye, had me lay down as she straddled her legs over my mouth and Rebecca proceeded to insert my long hard cock into her pussy...

I felt a tap on my shoulder as I opened my eyes to see two beautiful girls standing next to me. "Are these seats taken?" said the beautiful blond with her brunette friend standing next to her. It's amazing how much you can convey with just the look from one’s deep penetrating eyes.

I said, "No, help yourselves." I paused and took a second look. "Say, don't I know you from somewhere?" "My name is Kate and this is Michele. What is your name?" she asked with interest. "You look so depressed, didn’t you have a good week?" she added. "Name's William, and I just lost an important company to provide advertising services, probably to another agency I guess," I said with a deep sigh of despair.

"Gosh, you work for an ad agency? Well, we do too! It looks like we've got something in common; we're with Cheathum, Doey & Howe just on the other side of town," Kate replied with a sexy smile. "We just landed a BIG client named Eden Fantasys from Atlanta and we're here to celebrate!"

"What...? Why that's the company I've been working on for the last four months," I answered with astonishment!

"Well..., why don't we get out of here and really celebrate! We've got a hotel room at the Marriott and I think we can ALL have a really nice time together, if you know what I mean," replied Kate with a wink and a grin.

It's amazing how quickly fortunes can change. I didn't know if I was in a fantasy dream or not. With one final gulp, I emptied my drink and wasted no further time. "Ok baby, let's go!" I replied. I was determined that tonight would be my lucky night; I was back on my game with charm and wit, and I knew EXACTLY what to do!

Who knew that 'being on top' could be so dreamy, desirable, layered, humorous, compassionate and downright fierce, all at one time!
