This edgy compilation peruses the wide, wondrous world of far-out fetishes. Editor King boasts a collection that will make readers squirm while they squeal, and these entries follow through. In J. Belle Lamb's gorgeous introductory piece, "Pygmalion," playful flirting between Irene and Trixie evolves into a deep night of erotic catharsis involving a Rothko painting and a sleek knife. Reena doesn't have a "thing" for feet, not really, until devastatingly confident dungeon moderator Elin slips into her massage chair in Sonni de Soto's "Support Service." Threesomes and group play are a common theme, making an appearance in the steamy, sun-kissed "Aloha à Trois" by Kathleen Tudor, and Annabeth Leong's "Simultaneous," a story of a kinky couple incorporating piercing, bondage, and a trusted friend. Bawdy tales blend seamlessly with gentler ones, including dreamy reverie "Date Night" about a Master/slave couple's first date by Brey Willows, and Rose P. Lethe's "Private Party," wherein a novice to the scene finds that she much prefers her playtime one-on-one. As varied as they are, the entries share an uncanny ability to draw on the erotic appeal of kinks common and less so: feet, knives, pony play, orgasm denial, and much more. Seasoned contributors are sprinkled among newcomers, giving Cleis anthology fans a healthy dose of the fresh and the familiar.
VERDICT A welcome, raucous departure from bland erotic fare. Highly recommended for readers seeking sexy stories with bite.
