5.0 out of 5 stars Very pleasing indeed! 27 Jan 2011
By AuntyBB
As someone who has read - and been disappointed by - too much badly written and clichéd "illiterotica" (sorry!), I'm thrilled to say that Please, Sir is indeed pleasing on every level. It's clear that the editor, Rachel Kramer Bussel, has not only a keen eye for language and literature born of an accomplished career, but also a genuine love of and feel for the subject matter. I can't fault the selection of stories - seriously sexy but sauced with humour, original settings and engaging characters, and all by authors who are clearly au fait with the genre (or at least have a well-honed instinct for turning the reader on!) Within the broader subject of female submission, there's something to appeal to everyone - from fetishes to dark takes on everyday scenarios, and plenty of twist endings that make one smile rather than groan! My top picks would include Emerald's Power Over Power, set in a martial arts class, and A Maze And Grace, by the always-brilliant Elizabeth Coldwell.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delectable nuggets of eroticism. 1 Aug 2010
By Mia
Between 10 and 20 pages : this is all the writers of this anthology are given. A handful of lines to create entire universes, believable characters, personal relationships and, above all, stimulating erotica. No small feat. Almost an impossible task.
Yet, all the authors succeed. Each and every single one of them conjures up a little universe in which all kinds of fun are allowed.

Submission and its numerous pleasures are narrated with such scrumptious enthusiasm and in so many luscious styles that even a true Stoic would find it hard not get a little hot under the BDSM collar (did togas have collars, BDSM or otherwise ?)

So why resist ? Yield to the writers' siren songs. I solemnly swear you will get satisfaction...

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Great Anthology from Rachel Kramer Bussel 18 May 2010
By Robert T Bakie - Published on
_Please, Sir: Erotic Stories of Female Submission_ is the latest of Rachel Kramer Bussel's bookend anthologies (pairing, in this case, with _Please, Ma'am: Erotic Stories of Male Submission_). If you know anything about Bussel's previous anthologies, you know that she has a knack for picking well-written erotica: entries strong on characterization and story that are guaranteed to bring the heat.

The twenty-two stories in _Please, Sir_ explore the world of the female submissive from her point of view and, even within that particular boundary, you'll find a surprising and provocative variety. Some highlights include:

The Negotiation by Remittance Girl: in which a hostile takeover is far from unwelcome.

Pleasure Keeper by Charlotte Stein: in which the waiting is the hardest part, especially for Kit, but the payoff is so very worth it.

Long Time Gone by Heidi Champa: in which a college reunion brings the story's heroine back together with the only man who ever knew what she really wanted.

No Good Deed by Alison Tyler: in which playing the game to lose is playing the game to win.

Anticipation by Shanna Germain: in which supercharged Instant Messaging makes a woman's time away from her dominant lover the ultimate buildup.

There's not a dud amongst them, although you'll always have your favorites,

The final story, Rachel Kramer Bussel's "Your Hand On My Neck", ends the anthology with a spellbinding story of trust and control and the cathartic power of submission.

Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars I learned so much! 21 Jun 2010
By Creative Diva - Published on
I loved that this book has so many unique perspectives from story to story.
This is a new realm for me and I found the stories insightful. I can see how someone new to these perspectives can learn & enjoy and also how someone already familiar would really enjoy the stories.
The book is an easy read and the stories are a perfect length.
If you are already considering this book, I would go ahead and put it in your cart.

Experience the Breathtaking Thrills of Sexual Submission

From spanking to bondage, punishment to service, Please, Sir takes BDSM erotica to a new level with these explosive stories of female submissives and their male dominants. Featuring a kinky Krav Maga master, a brat who gets what is coming to her, and much more, these stories explore enticing territory that will make your heart race. Spend "A Night at the Opera" and visit a "Masochist on Vacation," as eager couples play with power and get off on it every step of the way. The damsels in Please, Sir delight in the pleasures of taking risks to be rewarded by the men who know their deepest desires. Find out why nothing is as hot as the power of the words "Please, Sir."

What Stephanie Thinks: With the exhilaration of the punishment embarking from a strong man's even stronger hand, Please, Sir will have readers squirming with desire and gasping for breath.

This is an anthology full of sweet girls who do naughty things. Girls who expect to be disciplined by their masters, and girls who enjoy it. They pout and bat their long eyelashes; "punish me?" they ask.

BDSM including male dominance is classic and sweepingly arousing. A dom who whips a girl one moment, then tenderly makes love to her the next, exalts a feeling of power, which ironically is in the hands of the submissive. On the psychological level, the power play that endures in each of these sizzling stories is both thrilling and touching. That there is a bond between two lovers so strong, pain and severe punishment strengthens, rather than fractures it, is wondrous to imagine.

Some of it is a bit too hardcore in this collection of erotica, though. I previously mentioned I liked the mind tease of BDSM, but was content leaving out the whips and chains part. This book swarms with the physical torture I try to stay away from -- the scenes are heavy, very heavy, and have me panting. In a way, this is a bit of a turn-off. I want to read about love and sex, not blood and urine!

Overall, Please, Sir is an exciting anthology unlike anything I've read before. I personally find myself slightly nauseated by the immutable rough and tumble of the sex and kink, but am sure some of you more mischievous folk will devour it exuberantly.

Stephanie Loves: "'Whatever is in you, whatever you're feeling -- feel it. Don't hide from it. Don't try to "beat" it. Be with it until you understand it, until you know where it comes from.' I frowned at the floor. 'Then it won't rule you anymore.'
I raised my eyes to his as he finished the sentence. Sweat dripped from my forehead onto my neck as my quick breaths punctuated the silence in the room.
'That's what power is,' Dominic said. 'It doesn't have anything to do with force or subjugation.'" -- from Emerald's "Power over Power".

Radical Rating: 6 hearts- Would recommend to people.

5.0 out of 5 stars Erotic Ambrosia 4 July 2013
By PJ Bayliss - Published on
My complements to the chef: Rachel Kramer Brussel, who has combined the talents of 22 Erotic writers, all of who are top-shelf delicacies by themselves, to produce this collection of erotic short stories.

While some readers may feel disconcerted by the brevity of each story and transition to another, this feeling is typical of any short story anthology. For this, I give full marks because there certainly was not any masking of that fact within the pre-amble or description of the book. Naturally one woman's fantasy won't flow directly into another's, so the cover-to-cover plot should not be expected.

I found the book to be like a 'peep hole' or 'erotica roulette' because no matter where I turned within the pages, the action was plain to see, and a new beginning was never more than a couple of pages away. Some of the action was most definitely hard core and bordering my own personal hard limits, other stories were charming and romantic, with a twist of kink. It certainly provides a wide variation of erotica writing and details that are so graphic that would challenge 'tainted vanilla' readers.

Explore this book for what it's worth: a peep-hole styled desert taster, where you might find the lemon that sours your erotic taste buds, or you may just stumble upon on your next most favorite author and favorite appetizer for your own sordid sensual desert.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best kind of sex education 15 Jun 2010
By Sue Katz - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
There are many ways to get a sex education and one of the best is to follow the rich stream of erotica anthologies that Rachel Kramer Bussel puts together.

Her work ranges from erotic collections with such titles as Passion, Naked, Orgasmic and Fast Girls, to volumes, like Please, Sir: Erotic Stories of Female Submission (which follows Please Ma'am: Stories of Male Submission) that concentrate on a particular fetish or sexual sub-community.

Do people really do it on airplanes? Check out her collection of testimonies to The Mile High Club. Wondering how other people feel about oral sex? Try her Tasting Her or Tasting Him anthologies.

Rachel Kramer Bussel titles her Introduction to Please, Sir: Erotic Stories of Female Submission "Risk and Reward," an immediate and clear summary of why woman submissives like what they like. There have been copious articles by feminists (and others) talking about what they get out of kinky sex and deconstructing the world of sexual fantasy, but Bussel has a non-judgmental, informed approach. "It's about unlocking something within yourself so you can reach beyond your normal limits, exposing your body and soul in order to go somewhere you cannot get to alone."

With 22 stories by 22 writers, including a final story by the editor herself, the reader can dip into 22 experiences of submission. Rachel Kramer Bussel's story "Your Hand on My Neck" is an especially exciting example of risk (his hand squeezes her throat) and reward (she loses herself in the pleasure of belonging).

But it is good to start with the beginning of this book, where Shanna Germain's story "Anticipation" gives us one of the strongest depictions of the role of anticipation in this special world of hanky-panky. A woman sits at a computer cafe in Europe writing her lover in the States. Having been apart for six months, imagination and anticipation are their only fuels. As he arouses her through the screen, she says, "I have to bite back a quiet sound of want, swallow it down around my steaming coffee and hope that no one heard." He teases her with his plans for her when they are reunited. "I have to shift and cross my legs, the pulse of my clit beating hard inside my jeans. I'm not one of those women who can come just by rubbing their legs together, sadly. I need a hand on me, ideally his hand, hard and fast, spanking my ass or my clit, bringing me to that heated burn of orgasm."

"The Negotiation" by Remittance Girl, one of the more literary tales in the collection, takes on another basic aspect of kinky sex, an activity that emphasizes frank discussion and consent. Two elegantly suited businesspeople are negotiating a merger, but he tells her that her assets are as yet unevaluated. "In the interests of full disclosure" she pushes her chair back from the table so that she is in full view. "Slowly, she uncrossed her legs and parted them until the hem of her short skirt pulled taut against her thighs." Having examined the assets, he moves the metaphor into kinky gear. "You realize that a merger is not the only option for us? A buyout would suit us just as well... It would provide for a far more reliable corporate governance structure."

Wherever your sexual curiosity takes you, Rachel Kramer Bussel is sure to have gathered together the best erotic stories on the topic.
