Picture Me Naked: Erotica for Women by Violet BluePicture Me Naked: Erotica for Women by Violet Blue
Cleis Press, January 2015; ISBN-10: 1627780947

Picture Me Naked delivers risky, romantic, heart-pounding thrills. Joyful, daring, and authentic, these steamy stories revel in erotic adventure, from the sparks between strangers to the knowing caresses of longtime lovers. Not merely erotic, these stories are filled with strong characters and clever narratives showing a wide variety of sexual expression. In Louise Lagris’ “I Wish You Were Braille,” a city sophisticate greatly enjoys a hot New York encounter, while Kirsty Logan’s “Sealskin” is a rapturously sexy and mysterious tale of sex on the beach. Alison Tyler’s naughty roommate threesome get more then they bargained for in the dangerous and delicious “Want.”

Violet Blue's point of view, exhilaratingly expressed in this collection, is a glorious celebration of the finest and friskiest female erotic fiction today. In Blue’s own words, "Every single story is layered top to toe with explicit sex — hard and wet and mean and sweet, flowing with love and fused with characters who finally feel like us, with no apologies.”

Cleis Press, February 2015; ISBN-10: 1627780866

This exciting 2015 volume of Best Sex Writing features a number of significant bloggers and some of the most important stories of the past two years. Alexandria Goddard is the blogger who made the important connections in the historic Steubenville Rape Case; Epiphora is the most renowned and saucy sex toy reviewer who has legions of dedicated followers; Lux Alptraum has recently sold the wildly successful Fleshbot and taken an editorial position at Nerve. These contributors (and many others) know the words that sell online, and their presence in this collection will carry tremendous weight with readers.

At the same time, this anthology features topics that have not received as much attention in previous editions. Claire Litton provides a terrific personal recollection of sex in nerd culture. Internationally acclaimed musician Ember Swift recounts her sexual appetites while she was pregnant. David Henry Sterry remembers his experience as a sex worker providing service to an 82-year-old woman. People — including those beyond the sex community — are learning to consider sex from many different angles, and this collection covers a great number of them.

Taint by S. L. JenningsTaint by S. L. Jennings
Avon, February 2015; ISBN-10: 0062389718

This no-holds barred, sexy New York Times bestseller pushes the envelope like no other novel has as it spins the titillating, enticing tale of one man who teaches women everything they need to know to make their partners happy in the bedroom…while making their own wildest fantasies come true.

Right now, you're probably asking yourself two things: Who am I? And, what the hell are you doing here? Let's start with the most obvious question, shall we?

You're here, ladies, because you can't f*ck.

Oh, stop it. Don't cringe. No one under the age of 80 clutches their pearls. You might as well get used to it, because for the next six weeks, you're going to hear that word a lot. And you're going to say it a lot. Go ahead, try it out on your tongue. F*ck. F***ck. Ok, good. Now where were we? If you enrolled yourself in this program then you are wholly aware that you're a lousy lay. Good for you. Admitting it is half the battle. For those of you that have been sent here by your husband or significant other, dry your tears and get over it. You've been given a gift, ladies. The gift of mind-blowing, wall-climbing, multiple-orgasm-inducing sex. You have the opportunity to f*ck like a porn star. And I guarantee, you will when I'm done with you.

And who am I? Well, for the next six weeks, I will be your lover, your teacher, your best friend, and your worst enemy. Your every-f*cking-thing. I'm the one who is going to save your relationship and your sex life.

I am Justice Drake.
And I turn housewives into whores. Now...who's first?

The Eyes of Bast by Lisabet SaraiThe Eyes of Bast by Lisabet Sarai
Totally Bound, March 2015

Trust your heart. Follow your dreams.

Shaina Williams’ grandmother bequeathed her that wisdom, along with an old pendant from the Islands, carved from an ocelot’s tooth. When instinct tells Shaina to visit the feral cat trap she’s set in Central Park, she listens to that inner voice. She discovers she’s caged a magnificent black tom, but the cat inexplicably vanishes after she tends to his wounds. Seeking the errant feline, Shaina encounters instead a handsome stranger whose slightest touch sets her body on fire. As the day dawns after a night of ferocious passion, her mysterious lover is forced back into his true shape—the tomcat she rescued.

Born a cat, Tom was transformed into an unwilling shape shifter by a sorceress who craved a human plaything to satisfy her perverse lusts. Centuries old and irresistibly powerful, Delphine Montserrat will stop at nothing to find her runaway familiar. Shaina vows to do whatever is necessary to defeat the vicious but seductive witch and save the man she believes is her soul mate—even though it might mean losing him forever.

Emily is a cautious assassin. While researching a target as a favor for a friend it all goes wrong, and she bumps into Finlay Mann—an Agent. A deep conspiracy has them only able to trust each other and risk their most venerable targets—their hearts.

Emily is an assassin—but one with a difference. She insists on checking out her targets herself, refusing to take a mission from her government contact—James—until she's satisfied the person truly does deserve to die. She's doing such research on a highly placed government man—a friend of the PM—when all hell breaks loose. The café Keyton Marshall is in is shot up, and Emily finds herself under attack.

Finlay Mann is with the Agency. He's tagging along, playing bodyguard when what was supposed to be a simple, time-filling, routine job goes seriously south. After making certain his client is safely away, he's drawn in by Emily. Together, they're trying to piece a complex puzzle and discover who is being lied to, betrayed, and possibly with traitorous results.

Unsure whom either can trust, it's the passion that flares between them that finally reassures them both they're on the same side, albeit from different perspectives. Emily is ensnared by Fin's loyalty and compassion, and Fin finds himself desperate to protect and support this fierce, hard woman who for too long has been able to rely on no one but herself. They both know the fatality of a heart shot, but each is helpless to resist the other.

Take This Man: Gay Romance Stories by Neil Plakcy (Ed)Take This Man: Gay Romance Stories by Neil Plakcy (Ed)
Cleis Press, January 2015; ISBN-10: 1627780858

A rarity — romantic erotica focused on male couples in committed relationships — Take This Man comes from one of the top-flight gay fiction writers, Neil Plakcy. Many erotic stories focus on the thrill of first contact, but Take This Man is thrillingly different, taking a close look at how much sexier an encounter can be when the two men involved have been together for long enough to make a commitment to each other.

Formalized or not, the fact remains that knowing what turns your partner on — and vice versa — makes encounters even hotter, especially when the erotic encounter is an expression of an emotional bond.

The Witches of Gloucester by Lisabet SaraiThe Witches of Gloucester by Lisabet Sarai
Ladylit Publishing, March 2015

ERWA Review by Bob Buckley: In the interests of full disclosure, the guy this delightful fantasy is dedicated to — right there on the dedication page — is me, and I couldn't be more over­the­moon about being cited in a Lisabet Sarai story.

Now, having said that, let me say further that this is the kind of story you want to just cuddle up to.

Miss Sarai has set our cheeks ablaze and loins aflutter with tales set in exotic locales around the world in which the local environs are as much a character as the people she sets about in pursuit of the erotic. The setting here also plays its part. It is the famous Massachusetts fishing port perched on the tip of Cape Ann. Uh-huh, the other Cape thrust precariously into the Atlantic that has sent crews of fishermen forth to scour the bounty of the ocean, even though the ocean at times exacts a terrible price. It's a place of proud, working-class folks who, throughout its history, have welcomed and embraced the arts and artists, actors and writers, the like of Winslow Homer, Fitz Henry Lane, John Twachtman, Edward Hopper, Rudyard Kipling and H.P. Lovecraft. The list would fill a book, all of them charmed and captured by the magic of this town, which even has its own version of Mardi Gras, known locally as the St. Peter's Festival, in honor of the patron saint of fishermen.

Miss Sarai has captured that magic too, personified in the three witches of the title. Far from Macbeth's trio in temperament and beauty, they include the exotically dark Marguerite and a fiery-haired dervish of Irish mischief, Beryl, who have already shared an idyll lasting a century in the old town, and who make it their business to protect their beloved adopted home.

As happy as they are, they are incomplete without a third companion who appears in the person of Emmeline, a young woman just coming off a break­up with a boyfriend she's well rid of. Woefully bereft of self­confidence, Emmeline has no idea of the power she possesses, but all will be revealed during a delicious and, yes, magical seduction by Marguerite and Beryl.

This is a gentle and charming story; the conflict revolves around whether Emmeline will accept her lovers' invitation to complete the triangle and continue to protect the people of the charming and charmed port pitched on the edge of the Atlantic.

Maybe you'll decide Emmeline's decision is a no-brainer, but getting there will be one, sweet, sexy romp. And as much fun as a kiss amid a chorus of lusty cheers, Viva San Pedro!

The Beebo Brinker Omnibus: Ann Bannon's Pulp Classics by Ann BannonThe Beebo Brinker Omnibus: Ann Bannon's Pulp Classics
Cleis Press, March 2015; ISBN-10: 1627781226

Designated the "queen of lesbian pulp fiction" for authoring five landmark novels, Ann Bannon's work defined lesbian fiction for the pre-Stonewall generation. Unlike many writers of the period, however, Bannon broke through the shame and isolation typically portrayed in lesbian pulps, offering instead women characters who embrace their sexuality against great odds.

With Beebo Brinker, Bannon introduces the title character, a butch 17-year-old farm girl newly arrived in New York after she is driven from her Wisconsin home town for wearing drag to the State Fair. Befriended by the gay Jack Mann, a father figure with a weakness for runaways, Beebo sets out to find love. She never knew what she wanted — until she came to Greenwich Village and found the love that smolders in the shadows of the twilight world.

Overwhelmed with her discovery, Beebo is infatuated in turn with the vixen Mona Petry, the sweet femme Paula Ash, and the famous actress Venus Bogardus. Sexy, dangerous, and often touching, Beebo Brinker's search for love takes her from password-protected 1950s lesbian bars to the glamour and ritz of Hollywood and back. Chronicling the reality of 1950s lesbian life, Beebo Brinker is an astounding and engaging read.

Cleis Press, May 2015; ISBN-10: 1627781277

What are lesbians longing for? In Kathleen Warnock's spectacular parade of lesbian sex, women find love and lust in the most unexpected places — kitchens, cars, dance clubs, dungeons, and even a flowerbed. Femmes, baby dykes, bulldaggers, diesel dykes, studs, AGs, biker dykes, lipstick lesbians, and andros alike explore the heights of lust and the depths of desire in this breathtakingly sexy book.

Editor Kathleen Warnock and her partner-in-crime, guest editor Lea DeLaria, have concocted one of the sexiest books to ever hit print. Featuring work from some of the best-known erotic writers, as well as the debuts of startling new talent, Bombshells and Butches welcomes back some familiar faces, including Stella Sandberg. Her story, “Manchester, 2000," follows the European adventures of two studs on a long ride. Perennial fave Betty Blue returns with “The Garden of Earthly Delights,” an encounter between a fire spirit and a lost boi on the celestial plane. Cheyenne Blue’s “A Story About Sarah" travels to the Antipodes, telling the story of a life-long love between a rancher’s daughter and a half-Aboriginal woman. Whatever you are looking for, you'll find between the covers of Butches and Bombshells.

Marriage 2.0Marriage 2.0
Cast: Andre Shaki, Carol Qeen, Jack Hammer, India Summer, Nina Hartley
Director: Paul Deeb
Studio: Adam & Eve

Wander the Internet or your neighborhood and it's clear: throughout our culture, much of what was true 20 years ago is not necessarily the case now. Our relationships, romantic and otherwise, are in many ways beginning to reflect these new realities. Set against the vivid, natural beauty of Northern California and San Francisco, Marriage 2.0 follows a couple (India Summer and Ryan Driller) on their search for personal freedom, emotional and sexual bliss within the context of an honest and committed modern relationship.

What makes Marriage 2.0 a different kind of relationship movie is its frankness; for all the pleasures of open relationships, jealousy and vulnerability do not magically disappear. This love letter to San Francisco - the cultural epicenter of the alternative relationship movement - suggests that the ideas of growth, novelty, and sexual adventure can exist within a millennial marriage. Marriage 2.0 tells a story both timely and universal.

In the company of its diverse and storied cast including: Ryan Driller, India Summer, Andre Shakti, Mickey Mod, Sadie Lune, Dylan Ryan, Beretta James, Daisy Ducati, Christian Wilde, Juniper Gold and erotic cinema legend Nina Hartley; accompanied by many luminaries of the sex-positive community, including Carol Queen, Emily Morse, Reid Mihalko, and noted TED speaker and author of the NY Times best-seller Sex At Dawn Christopher Ryan, we are invited to celebrate a modern redefinition of the committed relationship - as a dynamic springboard for adventure, where unfettered physical and emotional intimacy can fuel our passion while strengthening the bond with those we love.

'People will find Marriage 2.0 both entertaining and enjoyable in a way that we just don’t come to expect from a general porn feature.' - XCritic
