Product Description


"Many varieties of desire are on offer here, all united by the fact that the heroines of each story are intelligent women enjoying the discovery of their sexuality. Violet Blue has been editing this annual anthology for ten years and knows how to pleasure her readers with stories that show the limitless possibilities of what women want from their sex lives." --Metro UK "Short stories that get the blood pumping and ramp your excitement up!" --Hanging off the Wire "Best Women's Erotica 2014 is written by women, for women, and there are some very interesting ideas explored in this book which are sure to inspire new sexual fantasies for the reader." --Cara Sutra, reviewed by Ali's Additions "Best Women's Erotica 2014 is a tremendous sampler of what erotica has to offer: from the kinky to the creative to the downright funny. As is true of only the best anthologies, there is something here for everyone." --Ella Dawson "If your only experience with erotica is that "certain trilogy," you deserve better. Pick up this collection (or, really, any of the previous nine volumes), because you won't be able to put it down. Except to, well, you know." --City Book Review "Keeps you entertained all the way through to the end." --Fresh Fiction "This book truly does represent some of the best erotica for women that is out there at the moment." --Clitical "With seventeen hot encounters this book is packed full of erotic sex and passion." --Kink Etc. "While the standards are always high at Cleis Press, each installment of Best Women's is, arguably, the cream of the cream, so when I say that Best Women's Erotica 2014 is one of the strongest in recent years, this is no small thing."-- Malin James "Varied and fascinating, Violet Blue's latest anthology enthralls arouses." --She Magazine "This anthology has women's pleasure at its core; it has everything I could want in an erotic anthology, and even then it surprised me." --Geeky Nymph "The variety offered by Best Women's Erotica 2014 makes it great to begin exploring and discovering and a great place to return for experienced readers." --Peep's Scoop "The stories are wild and the writing is good--what more can we ask for?" --Reviews by Amos Lassen "If you're looking for two or three hours of stimulation, I recommend this book highly. Both Ms. Blue and Cleis Press are known for producing high quality anthologies." --Erotica Revealed "Brought to us by Violet Blue, an author, video blogger and sexpert who's made quite the name for herself in the world of erotica, this collection is all about what women want. The 18 sexy stories (all written by women) cover every sexy scenario you never knew you were into, from fantasy to fetishes." --Refinery 29 "Every story has one thing in common--as Violet Blue herself says, 'a woman is at the center of every pleasure.'...When erotica is made for women, there is a nervousness that it will be very gentle. Not so with this collection--the desires range from deliciously vanilla to spiced with kink...It's an anthology that will expand your palette... and your mind." --Romantic Readers and Writers Association "If you like tantalizing and titillating stories this anthology is full of them. Those two sexy words describe the stories in this book. Eighteen stories that paint wondrous pictures of so many different places and different adventures, so full of likes and even loves.These stories are well written and pull readers into their worlds. I enjoyed many of the characters and their stories. BEST WOMEN'S EROTICA 2013 has it all from food play to visiting strip clubs and all that comes in between.Sometimes I enjoy a short hot read and these stories hit the spot. There is character and world development that make many of these stories shine. I love when you can get lost in a story." --Fresh Fiction "Whether you're male or female, I can easily see a wide variety of people enjoying this collection of erotica. A couple of the stories can be found in other books, but those are really great stories, so I'm glad to see them included anyway. This book is arousing, has high-quality stories that are pushing "normal" boundaries without being too kinky, and Bet Women's Erotica 2013 just is an overall fantastic erotica collection." --Pop My Cherry Reviews "I am jealous of Violet Blue; she is totally living the life that I have wanted to live since I was about sixteen years old. She is lucky enough to get the opportunity to read through hundreds of superb entries and narrow them down to around twenty choices to then publish as the best for each coming year. Best Women's Erotica 2013 does a superb job of covering a wide range of fetishes that is geared towards women who enjoy well-crafted and highly imaginative erotica. These women are comfortable with their sexuality and are more than willing to share what they know with anyone who wants to join them on the adventure. Even if you do not connect with each fantasy you will at least be able to appreciate the level of craftsmanship that is applied in each tale. Each writer knows how to write a sexy and emotionally stimulating tales. I look forward to next year's anthology with bated breath." - Night Owl Reviews Praise for the Best Women's Erotica series: "Gets racier every year." -- San Francisco Bay Guardian "This year's Best Women's Erotica collection is one of the hottest and steamiest books I've read. The stories keep getting hotter and hotter." -- On Our Backs "The erotic anthology has been turned on its head by Best Women's Erotica, a series that is arguably the best cross-genre anthology in print, period." -- Good Vibrations "A marvelously balanced anthology...Best Women's Erotica is an essential investment." -- Erotica Readers & Writers Association "Lesbian, bisexual, and heterosexual voices converge to present women's sexuality in all its wet, juicy, romantic, and lustful guises. Some of the stories are dark in tone, others full of joy. Risk-taking and new experiences bring out the best in these authors." -- Libido

Violet Blue's finger is on the pulse of women's desires with this collection! 27 Dec. 2013
By Cadence Ryanne - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
For an early Christmas present, my hubby responded to Ms. Blue's request for reviewers of her latest Erotica collection. It was a delightful present! Violet Blue is among my favorite erotica anthology editors. She brings her vision about sexuality into each story. The authors of Best Women's 2014 Erotica have all voiced some core belief that Violet Blue holds about women's desires. Much of what she divines from these stories is based on countless women who also voice their desires. Her introduction addresses the idea of what women want both directly and indirectly. Ms. Blue states that women shouldn't be underestimated when they voice their wants. She is right. They want a myriad of things, complexities held by no single person that can encompass the entirety of womanhood. That through exploration in the imagination, a woman can not (and should not) be judged by her baser wants. It is through these wants that she becomes a complete, erotic being (something often denied to her by societal norms and pressures).
Each of these stories is about strong, intelligent women discovering some new aspect of their sexual desires. From the beginning where a woman learns to love sex when she thought she hated it to the end where a woman pursues the man she sees every day and wants from afar, each story is a lesson in sexual empowerment which so strongly mirrors Violet Blue's own life and philosophy. These aren't princess stories. No powerful Dom comes along and shows the innocent, clueless girl how to behave. But there are power exchanges and consensual domination by both men and women and no one is without a voice, such as in the story Marylou by Lucy DeBussy where the young shipmate finds her disguise blown and the crew emboldened by the heat of the island where they have taken a brief respite. While it may seem like she is in danger at first, she takes control of the situation and her own pleasure, using the crew.
Each story is better than the next and I was disappointed when the anthology ended. Looking back on the contents now, I see that it was a complete 200 pages but it didn't feel like it and I sped through the stories. When I first examined the contents, I was excited to see my favorite authors, Sommer Marsden and Alison Tyler included as well as Laura Antoniou who I have not read but have waiting in my collection. Her story, Blame Spartacus was incredibly powerful and amusing. What woman doesn't want gladiators fighting for her attentions? The other authors didn't disappoint. I even went to Craigslist after reading Sommer Marsden's Gentleman's Valet just to see if I could convince my husband to get this devious piece of furniture re-imagined as a sex chair! There wasn't one available on Craigslist though. Someone must have read that story before I did! Authors who were new to me emerged from the collection too. I loved the story by Jade A. Waters, Toys, where Jennifer has a fascination with sex toys but can't find a man who isn't intimidated by her vast collection. This story came to mind when I was drooling over the new iroha toys by Tenga and I had the wild thought that I wanted ALL of them.
I don't doubt Violet Blue when she wrote in the introduction that she reads quite a few stories to cull out these gems. I truly could not decide which of the stories I liked the best. They all spoke to me in some way which means that Violet Blue has accomplished her goal in bringing to women the makings of their deepest desires. There was a never a main character who left me disassociated with her needs. There was never a storyline that made me cringe or want to hide in shame. It speaks to the incredible power of Violet Blue that she's able to tap into the depth of story to bring women power.

Good read, worth owning 4 Jan. 2014
By Reviewer - Published on
Format: Paperback

Good mainstream-lust anthology. Worth owning.


1.) "Her Forest, Her Rules" - Laila Blake: Fun, fantasy elf sex play work. Well-written.

2.) "In Threes" - Elizabeth Coldwell: Mood-effective threesome piece.

3.) "Punishing Desmedona" - Catherine Paulssen: Two actors engage in theatrical spank sex. Well-written.

4.) "Monsoon Season" - Valerie Alexander: Romantic intense couple push their carnal boundaries. Good read.

5.) "Gentlemen's Valet" - Sommer Marsden: Fun read about a "torture device" and a loving couple.

6.) "Chrysalis" - Nikki Adams: Business-like lust gives way to something else for an office worker. Well-written.

7.) "Chattel" - Errica Liekos: A married couple evolves sexually. Good piece.

8.) "Revealing" - Ruby Ryder: A woman gets her dream guy. Well-written.

Still going strong... 23 Dec. 2013
By The Avid Reader - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition

- I received a copy from Violet Blue
- This review is completely of my own volition

(I used to review at Amazon, but since have shifted to goodreads.)

So... I was full of anticipation when I received Best Women's Erotica 2014. For me the bar has been set quite high with previous releases. I enjoy erotica anthologies and am always looking for the one that will completely haunt me, long after I stop reading. That's just a personal preference. And there's been times that it's come close, but it's always been particular stories that get me.

I felt this release started a little slow. It's possible it could've been just me, and the mood I was in, not to mention the expectation, but once it got going, it was sweltering. Valerie Alexander... not even my particular taste, but my mouth was watering. Lucy Debussy... damn if I couldn't hear the echoes of Nin, and the others, so close. There are celebrated names in this collection, including: Laura Antoniou, Sommer Marsden and Alison Tyler in her trademark style. Great selection. Varied enough to keep it interesting, challenging and something for most tastes. My only gripe: it always ends all to soon.

It is the Best in Women's Erotica 26 Dec. 2013
By QuixoticOrchid - Published on
Format: Paperback
I've been reading Best Women's Erotica since the first edition that came out in 2000 and each year it gets better and better. This year, in the introduction the editor confessed her term in office has almost reached a decade and the stories prove it. They're backed by the skill and creativity that comes from years of writing mixed with the freshness of all new erotic ideas. Everyone has their favorites, it's impossible not to find a favorite in this book, but mine is a tie between Tasmin Flowers's "I Hate Sex" about a girl who works in an adult novelty store who finds a new take on her own sexuality and Valerie Alexander's "Monsoon Season" where an older woman picks up a younger, submissive male at an engagement party for some temporary fun that becomes so much more.

Variety is the spice of an erotic life 11 Jan. 2014
By Pinkdiamond - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Honestly, it's getting pretty hard for me to review these anthologies without saying the same things I said about last year's. I think this is one of the best erotic anthologies out there because it caters to a variety of fantasies and fetishes. You really don't know what you're gonna get because the stories are very original and unique and are told from all perspectives. I doubt you could read this book and not find something to identify with.

For me, it was the one titled "Blame Spartacus" all the way. I LOVE watching MMA fighters and any sort of sport like wrestling where I get to watch hot guys grabbing and pinning each other (and if that sounds sexist ask yourself this - is it sexist when it's the men doing the watching?). Don't even get me started about the fantasies I have while watching, but I totally identified with the lead character in that story.

If you've never read any of Violet Blue's anthologies before now, you're in for a treat. This editor knows what she's doing. This isn't just penny smut - these are sex stories, not just sex scenes. This is what has me coming back to this anthology every year when it comes out. I personally have nothing against an erotic quickie, but sometimes its nice to have a little back story on our characters so we can better appreciate the chemistry between them when they're getting it on, you know?
