With K is for Kinky, Tyler takes the gloves off. This selection of stories is perhaps one of the strongest in the entire series, since the authors have been unleashed to indulge in their favorite kinks.
So, this collection of stories has a number of out there stories. Nothing that really will make you squick, but kinks that will definitely surprise, and almost definitely arouse. Who knew that a halloween costume could be so sexy? Or how erotic a man turned into a coin-operated toy for pleasure might be?
While the kinks in any particular story might not appeal, this collection is diverse, and almost guaranteed to find a button to push within you. Or more than one, as in my case.
So, this is my 11th one of these, as I work my way through them all. Sigh…15 still to go.
The Alison Tyler intro is surprisingly sparse; it seems phoned it in, even ghost-written, too thick with story excerpts, with no real effort to say anything unique or interesting about what exactly kink is and is about. The intro says only that it’s “the unexpected.” That comes across as a cop-out.
So, whaddaya get here? Well, you get:
• a lady who likes to be written upon—not a bad opener
• some subtle sexual conditioning—not that kinky, more like psychological B&D
• a whiny sub—it’s got a nice comic twist at the end, but is clearly B&D
• some BDSM equine play--okay, sufficiently kinky
• some Halloween costume play--nope, not really, more like dress-up/cosplay
• some light watersport—okay, but disappointingly shallow
• a senior citizen dirty story teller about a hot jazz nursey-dress-up—not bad, getting closer to kinky
• an intense spinning class, with a penetrative twist--much better
• a man become a coin-operated toy--better
• spanking, again--yawn, again
• a writing exercise playing on feline personification with BDSM—okay, if completely predictable
• a plastic surgeon who gets off on sex n’ cars—think JG Ballard’s magnificent Crash, but dumbed way down, involving low-end hookers
• some lesbian kleptomania and cutting—not bad
Some of this was kinda kinky, but a lot of it just wasn’t. Sure, for the dull brown suit churchgoers in Middle America, this book is indisputable evidence of Satanic presence in daily life, but for anyone who’s read a book or two of adult fiction, this collection is not kinkily cutting it. Where was the frottage, electro-stim, the adult baby fetish, immobilization, asphyxiation, the plushies, the really intense watersports story, statues and mannequins, bestiality, not to mention the subjects that I can’t mention here? There’s a lot of wild and varied kinky out there, and this collection barely scratches the surface.
Yeah, I get it: most folks don’t want to read that kind of way-out content. This is book is mainstream, acceptable kink.
I did find a couple choice lines, though:
“…There would always be more [urine]. It was her birthright…”
“’You’re kinky,’ says Leticia, ‘I appreciate that in a medical professional…’”
Bottom line: this is entry-level kink, best for someone who is happy with vanilla sex and may wonder what kind of moderately acceptable additional activities may be had for the just-a-little sexually adventurous. If you’re looking for real kink, unflinching adult fiction riffing on all of the really esoteric sexual proclivities out there, this one isn’t it.
or gag-worthy. Everyone has a bit of Kink in them...very interesting.
