4.0 out of 5 stars Exciting Erotic Bondage for the New Year 31 Dec 2011
By dave94015 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Best Bondage Erotica 2012 is a collection of bondage-themed short stories by 21 authors. The majority of the stories are written from the female protagonist's point of view (POV). Readers can gain an insight into the woman's mind as she enters into bondage either by herself or with her partners (there is also one menage MMF story). Most of the bondage is light and involves ordinary rope (a few have no physical restraints). Most of the relationships in the story have casual BDSM elements. Most of the stories involve or end with sex.

There has been a criticism of the collection because the bdsm is predominantly female domination (Femdom) of mostly male partners (9 out of the 21 stories - see below), but there are only slightly fewer male domination stories (8/21). The bias, if there is any, is that the majority of the writers are women (even for a M/M story). In my opinion, the gender of the authors does not affect the quality or the themes of the stories. It just may happen that there are more women than men writers of bondage erotica. Some of the authors have made contributions to previous collections.

The other criticism of the book is that the bondage and bdsm is light and mostly rope bondage. Besides being an easily obtained bondage device, rope bondage takes time to apply. The writers have used the setup time to explore the feelings of both the dominant and submissive partners or the solitary individual in self-bondage. This is the strength of the collection: feelings about dominance and submission are explored, however briefly (because of the story length). The stories have an insight into how the characters entice or nudge their partners into the risky but arousing acts of bondage, and how it enhances the intimacy of their relationships.

The editor, Ms. Bussel, is an advocate of bdsm and rope bondage in particular (she also includes a foreword by Midori, a rope bondage specialist ). Readers will find a sex-positive theme devoid of the murky aspects of bdsm in most of the stories.

Best Bondage Erotica 2012 gives the reader an insight into the many ways that bondage is incorporated into people's sexual activites and their relationships.

Details of my points and the ratings (combined story and erotica) are presented below. Caution: topical description of erotic activities may contain spoilers.

Best Bondage Erotica 2012 contains 21 Short stories mostly about rope bondage themes. While various aspects of the collection and some selected stories have been reviewed previously (see the above amazon link), this following paragraphs are about each of the stories.

Shoshana Evers - Melting Ice. Self Bondage by handcuffs of female character. The main character cannot reveal her interest in bondage to another person but instead relishes in risky self-bondage and the excitement from a sex toy. F POV 3/5

Elizabeth Coldwell - Night at the Opera. A dominant woman gets off with her partner pleasuring her in bondage while she watches an opera. The story takes the reader through the drama of the operatic performance and the character's arousal from her partner as told from the perspective of an experienced Domme. It was somewhat of a fantasy (can he really pleasure her through an entire opera?) but the pacing was exciting. FM femdom, F POV. 5/5

Andrea Dale - Darlene's Dilemma. A story of a male Dom who directs rope bondage sex between his two female slaves. A combination of bondage, pain and sex. MFF, menage, MaleDom, F POV . 4/5

T. R. Shannon - Snow White. Story of a female who is placed in bondage and spanked before a webcam. Public (online) humiliation. MF, Male Dom, 3rd party POV. 4/5

Lucy Felthouse - Trophy Boyfriend. The female protagonist decides to have a last affair with her boyfriend by reversing their usual kinky play style. She places him in bondage and has an incredible experience. In one part of the story there was a little confusion about a blindfold or a gag, but overall it was easy to follow this erotic tale. FM femdom, F POV. 3/5

Salome Wilde - Spider and the Fly. A story of a man who is goaded into volunteering for a public exhibition of rope bondage from his girlfriend. The story starts with an irrelevant scene of his female roommate suggesting that he submit to the spidery web of his recently acquainted girlfriend in a BDSM club where she is performing. FM femdom, M POV. 4/5

Elise Hepner - Tied Down . An exciting integration of intimate bondage and sex between two women, one of the most erotic stories of the group. A lesbian genre story. FF femdom, F POV.5/5

Kay Jaybee- Cupboard under the stars. A story of a threesome with sensory deprivation in a homemade dungeon. The wife is lead into the dungeon, blindfolded, her hearing blocked as two guys have their way with her. The plot was somewhat typical of the "I didn't know what I was getting into" type stories. MMF, MaleDom, 3rd party POV. 4/5

Teresa Roberts - Suffer for me. A women introduces an eager young man to the BDSM lifestyle with (for him) what will be a peak experience. After succeeding in controlling his mind over his physical desire for her, her heart becomes snared by his submission. While the bondage and erotic content was mild, this was one of the most emotionally engaging stories in the group. MF, Femdom, F POV. 5/5

Giselle Renarde - Dry Rub. A wife gets revenge on her husband when he comes home after a night of drinking. While he's too drunk to resist, she ties him up and satisfies herself. A story of dubious consent, or consent while intoxicated, and a woman getting what she wants in the end. MF, Femdom, F POV. 4/5

Craig Sorensen - Worthy Redemption. An introspective look at a man's effort to redeem himself to his partner with a mixture of wax play, body oils, tickling and switching. One of the most poetic stories of the group, readers might need to re-read this story to get the hidden meanings of the religious symbolism and the edging experience of drugs. It was not clear to me who was redeeming who and for what reason(s) and the relationship of the bondage to the redemption. The partner's switching of roles at the end was intriguing. MF, MaleDom,Switch, male POV. 4/5

Elizabeth Silver - Laced Corset. This is story of two guys who discover their attraction to each other when one dons a corset and has his hands bound to it by his partner. Friends and roommates for a long time, the bondage changes their relationship. One of two gay/lesbian genre stories. MM, male POV. 4/5

Bille Thorun - Pawns. A story of a man who forces his partner to expose herself to his reluctant friend. A story of obediance and "mental" bondage. MMF, MaleDom, 3rd party POV. 3/5

Helen Sedgewick - Cumana. A woman's adventure into bondage and sex while attending a wedding in a Latin American country. The story also reveals the love/hate feelings that many submissives have for their dominant partners. MF, Male dom, F POV. 3/5

Lana Fox - Good British Steel. A woman learns the excitement of bondage and terror from abandonment while in captivity and knife play with a childhood friend she meets years later. MF, Male dom, F POV. 3/5

Tenille Brown - Parting Ways. A woman's story of searching for one of her "friends with benefits" after being rejected by her boyfriend. She expected to find her friend interested in dominating her as usual but is surprised to find he is interested in someone else in a different way. An intriguing story about relationships and the "switchy" nature of BDSM. MF, Femdom, F/3rd party POV. 4/5

Kathleen Tudor - Knot Alone. The arousal a woman finds from rope and a vibrator. An insight to the feelings one has from rope bondage. rope self-bondage, F POV. 3/5

Valerie Alexander - The Insurrection. A woman returns to a resort island and turns the tables on an older man who dominated her when she was young. A well-crafted story. MF, Femdom, F POV. 4/5

Lolita Lopez - Turning Point. A story of how a man entices his partner to surrender completely to him through suspension and predicament rope bondage. A revealing insight into the gradual deepening of a relationship of a couple by bondage. MF, Male dom, F POV.5/5

Niel Gavriel - As Long as You Don't Wake Me. A man's tale about his adventure as he is seduced by dubious consent into the world of BDSM by his kinky partner. This story appeals to guys who are wary about the mindset of kink but might enjoy it's many pleasures. MF, Femdom, M POV.4/5

Rachel Bussel - The Weight. A woman's monologue about how she makes a fetish of her partner, the difference between the fantasies she expects from him and what is possible. It is how the accumulation of experiences she has with him has made him into her fetish. MF, Male dom, F POV. 4/5

In her introduction, Ms. Bussel describes the beauty of bondage and how the characters may not know if they are attracted to it, but their bodies often respond in these stories to the arousal that bondage brings. Consensual bondage has suffered a bad rap because of earlier taboos and religious, social or moral rejection. This collection indicates that bondage could be a component of healthy sexual activities that individuals or couples could engage in. Even if erotic bondage is not your "cup of tea", you may find this collection an insight to the many ways people engage in it for intimacy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pure bondage for tied-up lovers 7 Dec 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Rope lovers, rejoice! Bussel's well-chosen collection of bondage stories leans more to the tie-and-tease than to the whips and chains, giving bondage its moment in the spotlight, not just as the little sister of all-out BDSM. Several stories focus on the anticipation, danger, and sensuality of self-bondage, which makes for some wonderful "I could do that" fodder even for the unpartnered reader. There's a lot of well-described showing off to a lover that can't touch, also wonderful for putting yourself into the story. Power exchange stories include both fairly traditional Dom/sub dynamics and some good old-fashioned table-turning action. And much of the action occurs between well-established couples, making this a great collectionto read to a tied lover in your own bed! Especially hot for me were the stories "Laced", about goth boys playing corset dress-up, and Dry Rub, a hilarious little piece about a wife's revenge when her husband ditches her for his drinking buddies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Bondage Erotica 2012 30 Dec 2011
By Preston Avery - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Handcuffs and rope and stockings, oh my! So many motivations, so many ways, so many implements of bondage are explored in this absolutely luscious anthology. It is honestly one of if not THE best erotica compilation I have read. As Midori points out in the Foreword of the book, bondage appeals to a "shockingly large segment of the population." I believe this to be true. I also believe that anyone with even a hint of curiosity about being tied up or doing the tying can find something in this book to arouse if not full on inspire them, whether that inspiration is towards action, or restraint-imposed inaction. This book boasts men and women tops and bottoms in almost every deliciously imaginable combination. A couple of women even top themselves.

Sometimes the purpose of binding here is to tease, sometimes to inflict that oh so good hurt, and sometimes just to get exactly what you want. There are stories like Salome Wilde's "The Spider and the Fly," "Laced" by Elizabeth Silver, and Kathleen Tudor's "Knot Alone" which focus largely on the bondage itself, while others use their ropes and cuffs, etc as simply a very satisfying means to an end. "Dry Rub" by Giselle Renarde is a prime example of this.
There are stories also that quite effectively explore the vulnerability and soul exposure that both lovers experience within the confines of bondage. My favorite of these was "Worth Redemption" in which Craig J Sorenson writes, "Your body opened wide like grand double doors to a temple."

Overall, the writing was really exceptional and I would like to share a sentence that particularly struck me from each story. There may be some ***SPOILERS*** in this section, so be warned.

From "Melting Ice"
The ice was still frozen, not even shimmering wet yet on the outer surface.

From "A Night at the Opera"
But her ravings were nothing compared to my own, as Jonathan took me to a place where I could no longer hear the music all around me, only my own tormented breathing and muttered pleas for him not to stop what he was doing, never to stop.

From "Darlene's Dilemma"
His voice had a way of reaching out and caressing you, stroking over your skin, teasing its way into your panties...

From "Snow White"
Tears were running down my face now, collecting in big wet drops at the tip of my down-pointing nose before falling away.

From "Trophy Boyfriend"
...I gazed at the perfection that was a silent, sleeping Ethan...

From "The Spider and the Fly"
Her voice was soft yet commanding, and Nick was entirely under her spell before she'd truly begun to weave it.

From "Tied Down" (a personal favorite of mine)
But this isn't about air. I've had enough of that. I want to be submerged, suffocated--and she knows it.

From "The Cupboard Under the Stairs"
He'd never made her wait before, his own urgency to inflict pain usually as desperate as her desire to receive it.

From "Suffer for Me"
He nodded, his eyes so spacey I expected to see stars in their depths.

From "Dry Rub"
She watched his calloused fingers rub the fabric of her skirt, mesmerized by the motion.

From "Worth Redemption" (a personal favorite of mine)
Music constrained in your throat as I peeled the cool wax, then studied each piece like a Rorschach.

From "Laced" (a personal favorite of mine)
And I really am; my body feels like it's been plugged into a live current, and if I had enough room in my lungs, I'd say I feel like singing.

From "Pawns"
Absolute--this is a word they'd discussed at length.

From "Cumana'"
"You've done this before," I said, my breaths still coming fast and deep, and he didn't move for a second, then whispered to me, "Have you had enough?"

From "Good British Steel"
The first time I was stirred by a sword, I'd just turned eighteen.

From "Parting Ways"
Once, he had used a telephone cord.

From "Knot Alone"
I love touching it while it touches me.

From "The Insurrection"
I didn't let myself think about the moon shining over the beach, and all the ghosts holding each other in the empty dunes.

From "The Tipping Point"
Cal enjoyed trading pleasure for discomfort.

From "As Long As You Don't Wake Me" (a personal favorite of mine)
She was a sweaty, beautiful mess, and I loved her, in that moment, more than I had ever loved anyone before in my life.

From "The Weight"
Some things you have to live through moment by agonizing, dazzling moment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Think of it as an instruction manual 9 Dec 2011
By Guillermo Corona - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Rachel Kramer Bussel - editor of books like Please, Sir and the upcoming, Best Sex Writing 2012 - returns with a collection of dark delights for those of us who take a walk on the wild side and those who want to venture there. Best Bondage Erotica 2012 is not for the faint of heart or the sensitive, but for those who want to add a little more spice into their lives. The stories presented here are easily adapted to real life scenarios, so don't just think of it as a collection of well written erotica by some of the best writers of the genre; instead, think of it as an instruction manual - Intro to Bondage.

In Teresa Noelle Roberts's "Suffer for Me," we learn that bondage isn't just rope and leather. That our restraints can be mental as well as physical. We also learn that being climatically controlled can cause the same yearning arousal that handcuffs and servitude bring. And best of all, it also teaches us to remember that tingling sensation of concentrated lust time and again.

In "Melting Ice," Shoshanna Evers informs us that a bondage fantasy doesn't have to have two people. A pair of handcuffs and an ice cube is all Amanda Scott needs to get rocks off.

Kay Jaybee pushes us further from just experimenting with the kinkier side of sex in "The Cupboard Under the Stairs," when a dominate invites someone else into their sex chamber.

And Elizabeth Silver brings in the gothier side of BDSM in "Laced," as a bartender sees a friend in a light he's never seen him before.

Each story is carefully crafted to yank on our lusts (no pun intended - or perhaps it is) and I can imagine Bussel having a hard time to select which to use. Collected here, however, are the best bondage erotica that the year has to offer. I'm on the edge to see what's in store for next year.

5.0 out of 5 stars Something for everyone 3 Dec 2011
By Alicia S. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Far too often, collections of erotica, no matter how hot, can be somewhat one note. While there is nothing inherently wrong with this (hey, sometimes a girl wants to settle in with a one handed read that focuses solely on spanking or age play or cross-dressing), variety is the spice of kink, and this book serves up exactly that. A veritable buffet, there is something to whet everyone's appetite.
