About author

"Yes, Sir" is a collection of female submission stories edited by Rachel Kramer Bussel, who is an author, editor and blogger. She has edited a number of erotica collections and this is the first of hers that I have read, but I'm pleased with most of the stories contained within. The theme in this collection is male-led domination and its various portrayals. The stories are nowhere near sexist which lends a refreshing read to those interested in domination and submission.

The authors of the stories are as follows:

The Art of Darkness by Alison Tyler
Dear Professor Pervert by Donna George Storey
A Necessary Correction by Debra Hyde
The Editor by Amanda Earl
Ribbons by Kathryn O'Halloran
The Day I Came in Public by D.L. King
Lunch by Elizabeth Coldwell
When Penny Met Harry by Stan Kent
The Power of No by Teresa Noelle Roberts
In the Corner by Sommer Marsden
Stuck at Work and Late for a Date by Chelsea Summers
Running Wild by Shanna Germain
Pink Is the Enemy by Jocelyn Bringas
Sitting on Ice Cream by Lisette Ashton
Under His Hand, I Blossom by Nikki Magennis
Make Me by Rachel Kramer Bussel
Body Electric by Lisabet Sarai
Reclaiming the Sofa by Maddy Stuart
How Bad Do You Want It? by Gwen Masters

Content / Style / Audience

All the stories in "Yes, Sir" are written in varying styles but they still fit the theme of male-dominant/female-submissive erotica, with the exception of one story. I do like that there is some variety as there is an electric play story and one with a dominant who turns out to be a woman at the end of the story. After thinking she was male the entire time it was a really pleasant surprise. In my opinion, some of the stories lack a certain amount of consent to pass as believable, but they are still a very hot read.
    • Bdsm
    • Good mix of styles and content


This Cleis Press book is a 8" tall and 5 1/2" wide paperback making it a fair size for easy travel. It has a glossy cover with Yes, Sir in big white letters on the front and 201 pages, not including the content pages, the About the Authors and the About the Editor sections.

Both the front and back covers depict a female on her knees wearing a thong, garter, stockings and shoes so her bum is exposed making this very indiscreet. I think a book cover is in order, don't you?

This book is fairly well constructed and has put up with my light abuse very well so far. If I gave it to my husband to read it'd be tattered, as he's very heavily abusive on books, poor things! So bear that in mind when purchasing.

Personal comments

I love the idea of being given assignments to complete so here's an excerpt from the story "Dear Professor Pervert" that I found intriguing:

"Assignment #5: Go to the woman-friendly adult store south of campus. Ask a saleswoman for advice on anal toys. Confess your level of experience--beginner, dabbler, veteran ready for a challenge? Purchase the item she recommends as well as a bottle of lubricant. When you return home, insert the toy in your anus and masturbate. Record the experience in your Masturbation Journal, following the usual guidelines. Your last assignment earned A for the journal entry, which was nicely paced with evocative imagery. However, I gave you a B- for practical execution. The point of these exercises is for you to attempt something you haven't tried before. I expect you to obey the this rule in the future. If you accumulate enough demerits, it will be necessary to discipline you appropriately. Sincerely, Professor Pervert.

Ah yes, Assignment #5. That's why I'm here in this strange pose: sitting on my bed with my back against the headboard, my legs spread wide. It's the only position that lets me keep the butt plug in place while I diddle myself."

Also, I'd love to find me a pair of those shiny stockings like the girl on the cover is wearing! Oh wait, don't they sell them here on EdenFantasys? Why yes, yes they do Wet Look Thigh Highs


Mostly I read this book right before bed and then had to masturbate because I got so worked up from it. I can't wait to read the other collections like this and wouldn't mind reading the female-dominant ones either.

The only complaints with this book are that some of the stories lack consent and there's maybe one or two that after I finished reading them I thought, "That's it?". Otherwise, I loved this collection and would recommend it to anyone who was interested.
Follow-up commentary
I still like this book even though I haven't read it again yet. Honestly I remember books really well so it'll be a few years before I read it again, but I'm sure I'll still like it even then. The pages don't have any tears or stains and the binding is only slightly abused from opening and closing the book when first reading it.

    Sounds like an interesting read. I have yet to read any sort of erotica book, but I'll keep this in mind.
