Curvy is the New Black 20 Mar 2012
By One Hot Marriage - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Zoftig, curvy, fat, voluptuous, all words for the state of being when we hold more weight on our bodies than is possibly good for us ( some would debate this) but is often the way we are. Sometimes even the way we want to be.

For some weight is something we struggle with and feel some shame about. But for some others the generous expanses of delight held in our breasts, bellies and on our backsides is the stuff of sexual liberation and celebration. Like a gorgeous old master painting come to sensual life.

Curvy Girls: Erotica for Women is for those who feel both ways and there is something in this book for all women. The book is equal opportunity in it's treament of all women, there is no shame in this book. Nor is there sexism, ageism or any of the other "isims" that you might come up with. There are stories of younger women and older, women of color and Latin decent, blondes brunettes and redheads. Best of all there are men ( and other women) who truly love and get off on the idea of begin with a woman who embraces her size and lives life to the fullest.

One other thing that is not missing from this book is hot sex ( erotica without hot sex would be...?). Proving the point that size has nothing to do with the ability to have mind blowing sex of all types. And yes, all types of sex are ventured with nothing lost to say the least! Nineteen short stories spanning multiple unique and refreshing scenarios make this a book that will have a place on my nightstand for a very long time to come!

refreshingly different 1 May 2012
By gus - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Beautiful book, with a great variety of stories dealing with almost every possible aspect of being a curvy girl. what i found endearing is the embracing or the "curviness" by the characters. So often now we have an ideal body image that is impossible to live up to, and we forget the very real beauty that can be found in curves. The 19 stories themselves are varied and i feel balanced well enough with colorful and relatable characters and very steamy, sensual sex. This book is not about any specific kink or fetish rather it is an appreciation of curvy girls and those who love them, and in that is is different than other anthologies out there. is is a very sweet and loving tribute to women of all sizes.

Pleasant Surprise! 20 April 2012
By Karen Blue - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is a collection of erotica with bigger girls. This book has 19 different stories by various erotica authors. It is edited and co-authored by Rachel Kramer Busssel and includes a forward by April Flores. All of the characters have curves and "a little extra padding" I think there was a need for an erotica book like this. I hate that these are not the sort of characters you see in every book. I could love some of these women and see the allure of the bigger girl.

I am happy to report that almost every story was a pleasant surprise. I didn't think I would be able to relate to most of this book. I may have a little extra, but I am not a curvy girl. I loved In the Early Morning Light by Kristina Wright. This story, about a new Mom with a new body full of extra padding, is something that struck so close to home.

One theme I noticed was that two of the stories were about women who had quit smoking and put a bit of extra pounds on since then. Albeit these stories were completely different, I could enjoy them both. Champagne and Cheesecake by A.M.Hartnett is about a woman who has a reunion with two men. She celebrates her "victory tits" and voluptuousness with two former playmates in a very sexy scene. While Decadence by Satia Welch was about a woman treating herself to a little food indulgence after quitting smoking. Both of the woman oozed confidence and relished in their bodies.

My favorite erotic story was Before the Autumn Queen by Angela Caperton. This erotic story about a painting in a museum was very well written. I wanted it to go on and find out how what happens after the show where the museum working and the painting's sexy fan hook-up. This is an author I have never heard of, but she wrote so exquisitely about being beautiful I am now scoring the internet for more of her work. This is why collections by various authors are awesome.

Although I think this book set out to break a stereotype, some of the stories were full of bad characters. The story Runners Calves by Sommer Marsden did a poor job of trying to represent the bigger girl. I think most bigger girls are not runners. The main character made too many excuses for the body she was suppose to be loving and was eventually lavished upon. The low self esteem of this character was just a damned shame.

Passing the Time by Gwen Masters was another story that I think derailed from the main message of the book. This girl was stood up and she even suspected her boyfriend was cheating. I could relate to this girl, but it did not make me feel good.I recommend this book even for those whose major turn on is not a Curvy Girl. I was pleasantly surprised to find myself and my kink in its pages, I think you will too. I loved the few stories about woman loving woman, they did a good job of not apologizing for their sexiness.

Great Collection with Curves in all the Right Places 2 April 2012
By TheSlinkyWhoReads - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Curvy Girls is a steamy set of stories every voluptuous girl with curves will adore. (And I have no doubt that guys who like curves on their ladies will probably enjoy this anthology just as much.) Some of the tales burn fast and quick and other simmer at a deeper level. For me, personally, I could relate to several of the female main characters' "issues" and fantasies. It may seem that curves are not appreciated as much these days, but the authors of these stories prove a lack of love from the fashionably thin doesn't make the voluptuous any less sexy.

The anthology kicks off with a tale called "Runner's Calves" which brings up a problem I have *every* Fall season when I go to try on knee-high boots--they're just not built for tight, muscular calves. Darn you, shoe makers! But, never fear, our heroine finds a hunny who has the perfect pair for her, and can appreciate her strong legs in other ways as well. Nice. The tales don't lose any of their heat or curves past this, and the stories vary as much as the women themselves. A few of my other favorites in the collection included "First Date" and "Big Girls Do Cry," both of which took their main characters to a deeper level.

The editor did a wonderful job of pacing this collection, and authors did an equally wonderful job of giving her material to work with. I'd definitely recommend this one to both those looking for hot tales and those simply looking for great stories where a little weight in all the right places is much appreciated.

Erotica Virgin 22 May 2012
By Newbie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Curvy Girls Erotica for Women was my first experience with erotica, and it was a pleasure from start to finish. A good read transports the reader into the story, its characters, and excites the reader as if it were happening to her. This is the great fun of Curvy Girls. Decadence took me through the kitchen door of that restaurant after hours, and behind the record store counter in Small Packages... I felt the cool leather and the daring silence of the museum in Before the Autumn Queen...
The heroines of these stories seem to know who they are. And while the self- portraits they paint ("Ample", "Wide", "Full-figured") risk isolation and judgment, their insecurities, desires, and responses are so universal, few will fail to relate. We know their curves because we know our own. Their adjectives describe us too, and we are given the choice to love our shapes and ourselves. In their pursuit of pleasure, these women embrace everything they are, broad, ample, and full-filled, and are rewarded for it.
