The first collection of erotic fiction and poetry by Mary Anne Mohanraj. "These tantalizing stories delight in confounding expectation, making them all the more compulsive." -- San Francisco Bay Guardian "Mohanraj is an Internet legend. Intelligent and seductive, she not only writes well, she writes with a purpose, and her stories leave a lasting impression." -- Carnal Knowledge magazine "Genuinely moving...pulls no punches when it comes to graphic sex and raw emotion...a voluptuous rhythm...characters and situations as startlingly original and varied as one might find in any anthology of modern literature." -- Paramour magazine… (mais)

OK, so I'm a bit biased. I follow the author on social media & am a fan of pretty much everything of hers that I've read (not yet read everything she's written, but I'm working on it). On the other hand, I'm not really much of a reader of erotic fiction, finding most of it generally unsexy and eye-rollingly bad. This? Is not most erotic fiction. There's enough variety that just about anybody should find something appealing. And the characters are all warmly and realistically drawn.

Granted, all of the stories didn't work for me, but that's to be expected. We don't all find the same things intriguing or sexy in real life, either (thank ye gods and leettle feeshes, because otherwise this would be a rather boring world!) Those bits that did work for me? Wowza. /ahem/ Did it suddenly get warm in here?

One of my favorite things about the book, though, is the care that went into it. I've gotten so used to awful ebook editing, that it is a genuine pleasure to read one that doesn't have a million tiny errors of spelling, punctuation, spacing, grammar, etc. ( )

This was an interesting collection; not quite what I expected from the title and byline. Rather than a series of erotic montages, this is a collection of short stories (and some poetry) that have sexual content, with the focus mostly on the participants' thoughts and reactions to it. Sex in context, if you will. There are some pretty creative narrative devices in here, including a story told in a series of email exchanges and plenty of endings-with-a-twist. It's very good creative writing and the collection does what it sets out to do (question the value of internet censorship) while still being an enjoyable read and not too preachy about the evils of censorship.

This was the first erotic fiction I have ever read. To start, the descriptive language was shocking and it took a little discomfort to settle into the collection of stories. Mary Anne Mohanraj is a descriptive writer and her writing style is engaging and interesting. This collection of short stories is interesting, the characters are expressive and intriguing and at the end of each short story, I was curious and needing more. Thank you for the opportunity to review this book- great writing. ( )

This volume is a compilation of lots of short stories, vignettes, poetry, fantasy, statements which have to do with sexuality. Some are erotic, some are unerotic, some barely have to do with erotica at all, such as the poem "Orange after Midnight." The Appendix, which is long, is material from the first edition, including her essay introduction, which defends her rational in creating this volume and explains her beliefs about sexuality and the forward by Dale L. Larson, which criticizes the "Communications Decency Act."
I didn't like it at all at first, and stopped reading it. Later I started again because I knew I had to write a review, this being a book I got in exchange for a review. It was better the second time, when I had changed my expectations about what the book would be like. I don't like poetry, nor short stories in first person present tense, so that kept much of it from being my kind of thing. ( )

I received a free copy of this book from LibraryThing's Early Reviewers Program in exchange for an honest review. I had a difficult time getting through this and did not particularly enjoy it, to be frank. It just wasn't my cup of tea. Sorry. ( )
