Introduction: Confessions of a Confirmed Voyeur
I can t lieI like to watch. Looking at sexy people exulting in their sensuality, playing it up, flirting, flaunting it, gets me hot. Knowing they want to show off for me makes it all the better. I live in New York, the ultimate city for people watching, but only rarely do I actually get to engage in true voyeurismwatching other people have sex.
Sometimes I attend sex parties, where a giant room might be filled with all sorts of couplings. But the action that gets me hottest isn t the most over-the-top scene in the room, but one where I see two people so lost in each other that their bodies seem to give off waves of heat, a magnetism that s enough to lure anyone into their web. Once, during a threesome with a private sex party s host couple, I remember watching them kiss as the three of us were entangled and being both awed and jealous of the passion their lips shared, until they opened their circle to include me, letting me peek, and join in. I also like it when lovers show off just for me, and I have asked several I know to show me how they touch themselves when I m not around. Watching as their fingers stroke and pump makes me feel like I m being let into a secret world, given a special lens to view the utterly private.
Like talking dirty, another sexual act I indulge in every chance I get, watching uses one of my senses to enhance another. Seeing a lover strip for me, watching him run his hands up and down his body; making her display her masturbation techniques, showing off the bite marks or reddened skin from a spanking; checking out her cleavage or his ass from across the room when they don t know I m lookingall of this gets me hot and makes my body purr. Time seems to stop as I soak in her curves, his tattoos, her strong back, his neck, her parted lips, his hard cock. Whatever position I m in, I like to watch as our bodies melt against each other, and that visual is like a show-within-a-show for me, its impact spurring on my desire.
The authors who ve graced us with their naughty tales here also share the thrill of watchingand being watched. I m not so much a spy as I am a blatant voyeur; I like the people I m watching to know I m looking, to feel my gaze as they bare their innermost selves to me. I like to watch people s faces when they come, when every last shred of inhibition gets tossed out and they are naked, bare, caught in my glance. I like them to feel my eyes burning into them, warming them; to know I m getting off by absorbing whatever it is they want to reveal. When they re strutting their stuff just for me, giving me visual cues that tell me they know I ve got my gaze pinned on them, I m in heaven, squirreling away those images in my mind to replay later; responding to their every move, whether they re flirting from across the room, masturbating on command, or making love to someone else before my eyes.
Stan Kent knows exactly what I m talking about, and he shares his voyeuristic secrets in My Finest Hour. Once you read his story, I bet you ll want to watch his protagonist s lover, who knows just how to make sure you ll stick around to see what she ll do next. He puts us right at the heart of why looking is so alluring: Notice how the word shower contains show. Show and showerthe two go together like a wet pussy and a stiff cock. Our glassed enclosure is her stagemy luxurious private and personal peep show that satisfies my fundamental sexual need to watch my lover engaged in what would be private and personal moments if it weren t for the fact that I m watching. Watching someone in the throes of ecstasy, watching him surrender, fully and completely, to those stirring rumblings inside, is a powerful thrill. I consider it an honor, a gift, whether that means a breast flashed at me on the sly, or a private masturbation ritual that I m let in on. I replay the memories of watching when I m alone, a special erotic reel looping forever in my mind.
Other stories here also delight in the voyeuristic nature of sex. Tara Alton s Walled Lake Girl likes to check out her naughty neighbor as he fucks countless girls, until the tables get turned and she s the one in his bedroom while someone else (possibly) peeks in.
Despite our title, you don t need to be caught lookingyou can unabashedly enjoy every second of these personal peep shows that take you into a world where lovers light up their bedroom stages, creating dramas worthy of the big screen, whether it s a slow reveal or an all-out erotic extravaganza. Join usand look to your heart s content. I know I will.

Some of the stories try to sell the idea that being sexually used by a partner who is in a committed relationship with someone else is something that women should fantasize about.In these stories as soon as the act is over neither of them ever speak of it again.That may be something that has crossed a few women's minds as only a fantasy but it is NOT what most women want to happen.Still,if it's meant to be just a fantasy without the real life fallout then that is different from really allowing oneself to be treated that way.
Several of these stories though, are ruined by the writer making the partner with whom the woman is supposedly having a torrid affair to be sucking on a cigarette either during or just before the intimacy.Boy howdy,that's what every woman dreams about:Having sex with someone who stinks,has buzzard breath,has an out of control chemical addiction,is probably going to hock a few loogies during the act,and probably will be impotent after all of that.
Several more try to push the idea that having sexual relations with a drunk guy (or gal) is something that ought to delight women.Seriously.They push the idea that women would be turned on to a grown man or woman who can't take care of themself,is about to pass out,reeks to high heaven,is likely to become verbally or physically abusive to them any time,is probably going to vomit or pee all over her house,won't be able to perform,won't be able to drive themself home,and won't remember any of what happened the next day.Yessiree,Bob,that's exactly what every woman fantasizes about!NOT!
Several of these stories fail to put the reader in as much of a romantic mood as they could have because the writers never miss an opportunity to be disrespectful of womens' and mens' bodies.Also,early in the book one of the writers,unfortunately,calls healthy sex between consenting adults "naughty."
Then in a class all its own, is the story from this book about a woman who doesn't want to have sex with the man in the story and has her hand on the doorknob trying to get out of his apartment,however he forces himself on her,but after a moment she decides that he is so sexy and attractive that she can't resist him and they have great sex.I don't THINK SO! In fact 1955 called for that writer and wants its mindset back.
Could have so easily been so much better.Also disappointing because although steamy,it lacks ideas about things one might want to try with their partner.
I personally only found two stories to be lacking for my taste, but I think that's a fairly common thing with anthologies. You simply cannot please everyone with every single piece in the book. That being said, I found a much higher ratio of "Holy crap that's hot" to "Meh" in this anthology than most others.
It's not all about threesomes. There are some who are performing in some way, some who are knowingly being watched and some unknowing. There are 2 lesbian stories and 1 gay male story. Tales of sluts and prudish wall-flowers alike. I frequently found myself envious of the characters in the stories, to be honest.
I'm picky with my erotica; I don't like flowery euphemisms or 60 ways to says "cock". I like a happy medium between the no-build-up-straight-cut-to-sex and the so-subtle-its-pretentious, and nearly all of these stories fall wonderfully in that happy medium.
Most of the stories in this collection are heterosexual in nature, but there are a couple gay and lesbian stories included as well. There's one story that includes mention of cheating on spouses. As it would come with the subject matter, there's also a lot of different stories where the sexual action includes more than one person. For example, there's a story about a couple who enjoys hosting sex parities and having sex with other couples. In another story, there's a story about a woman who performs in an exhibitionist booth at a local strip club. For another story (and easily one of the hotter stories), a woman recruits another woman to have sex with her boyfriend so she can watch - one of her deepest fantasies.
Each one of the stories, while it deals with either watching or performing sexually, still makes it unique. I was a bit surprised at how varied the plots are - each story is so amazingly different and arousing in its own way. The stories are pretty light on plot - enough plot to explain the action, but the action itself is explained in sexual, but not crass, terms that make it really enjoyable to read.
I'm impressed by this collection about public sex, and now I'm looking forward to looking into other Cleis Press voyeuristic novels. I think I may have discovered a new fetish!
