Book Description

1 Nov 2006
People say the French stay slim thanks to their good wine and regular meals. This might prove to be the case, but the hottest erotica currently being written flows from the sexy pens of French women of letters. On the basis that writers of erotica are often known to find inspiration in their own lives and experiences, one can only draw certain conclusions! Dominique Aury under the penname Pauline Rage wrote The Story of O in 1954 and opened the floodgates for a whole new, sulphurous tradition of female erotica, since appropriated by female writers all over the world, including Anne Rice in the USA writing as A. N. Roquelaure. But the wonderfully perverse imagination of French authors has continued unabated ever since, and the daughters of O are now legions, including leading lights like Catherine Millet, Regine Deforges, Francoise Rey, Vanessa Duries, Florence Dugas, Alina Reyes, and the famous fashion designer Sonia Rykiel, all of whom contributed to this collection. French literary sex is hot, elegant, gently perverse, quietly shocking, and always arousing and these twenty-nine stories will leave no reader indifferent.

Interesting Collection. Some more outre' than the rest. Owing to variation in origins of Writers, yet, all forcing me to expand my awareness of the Female Psyche which is darker than the male often expects.

2.0 out of 5 stars Ooh blah blah 9 Oct 2012
By Shawn Jezerinac - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Maybe it's me, but for some reason the eros of these stories don't build to a great climax. The writing seems amateurish or juvenile. It just doesn't engage my adult mind or my desire to be surprised. I would call it flat. I only read 3 of the stories and gave up. Each of the stories ended in the death of the character so engaged in sexual expression or exploration that it lead to her demise. It's a strong concept but poorly executed.
4.0 out of 5 stars Another success story for the Kindle 28 Nov 2011

Well I was flying through Amsterdam and had a 4 hour layover and decided to walk through the airport bookstore. I saw this book(obviously look at the cover) in the middle of a stack of other less eye catching books. Well I read the back and immediately wanted a copy but the line was long and I really didn't want to walk through the bookstore carrying a women's French erotica book. So instead I whipped out my kindle and decided to see if it was available for order through my FREE global 3g coverage. Just my luck it was and it was about half as much as the bookstore was asking for it. So I went and settled in on my seat surrounded by people and read an adult novel, really QUITE FUN! The stories were all very exciting though some of them were graphic and involved cat fights to the death (never actually heard of one of those before). It was definitely a page turner full of multiple unrelated short stories about multiple characters sexual escapades.
