5.0 out of 5 stars 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars It is the Best in Women's Erotica 26 Dec 2013
By QuixoticOrchid - Published on
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good read, worth owning 4 Jan 2014
By Reviewer - Published on

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars 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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not even close to the best. 4 July 2014
