Rachel Kramer Bussel WOWS again!
Dang Rachel Kramer Bussel you’re on FIRE! Raving review for Best Bondage Erotica 2012 by A Night Owl Reviews Book Review
#rachel kramer bussel #erotica #bondage
Bondage specifically is a really interesting topic. First of all, you can incorporate so many different material items. You can pretty much tie someone up with anything, so as erotica, I think that’s interesting. And the other part — what I’m most interested in, both personally and in writing — is the psychological side. Bondage especially lends itself to writing about the kinds of reasons that people want to be restrained or want to restrain someone else. When people can do that really well, it speaks to people who are into bondage, but it also speaks to a wider meaning, because it taps into so much more than just our sexual side — it taps into ideas about power and giving up power and who you’re willing to do that for and why. I really welcome the challenge with the Best Bondage Erotica series to incorporate as many points of view about that as I can. I’m editing Best Bondage Erotica 2013 right now (the deadline is May 1), and I always need more stories: more lesbian stories and just any interesting stories. The reason there’s a Best Bondage Erotica series is, as much as it’s an old topic, it’s also a topic that can be reinvented.

Mr. Sexsmith is on fire, and we’re not just talking her titillating new Lesbian Bondage book Say Please. Blogs and readers are raving about her anthology across the internet. Here are just a handful of the several reviews the book has received thus far.
”You know what I love best about this book? I love that it exists.…
Every book is like a message in a bottle, and we cannot know upon which shores its message will wash up. Somewhere out there is a baby perv, who’s gonna find this book, and think, OMG THERE REALLY ARE PEOPLE LIKE ME AND SOMEONE THINKS WE ARE IMPORTANT ENOUGH TO PUT IN A BOOK! There are at least fifteen of them, because 23 of them wrote about it and then one of them put all the stuff between the covers of a book! And then they’ll sit there for a minute, and it’ll blow their minds when they realize, wait: there must be more than 23 of us plus me, because nobody would publish a book if only the people in it and some random nobody like me were interested. “
”I dipped into Say Please: Lesbian BDSM Erotica
almost as soon as I ripped open the paper shipping envelope…I finished the book on a bus trip, relishing the public debauchery of it…If I were a queen, I’d be beheaded for this. Say Please: Lesbian BDSM Erotica
is a great look into contemporary erotica. The variety of themes and plots was interesting enough to not be repetitive, yet they flowed together beautifully.”
”My rating: 5 of 5 stars
. BDSM is not always my thing. But good writing is, and this book is chock full of it. You might be wondering why I read it, if I’m not generally turned on by leather, or pain, or the wide-variety of things that BDSM is. To be honest, the first reason is that it was edited by Mr. Sinclair Sexsmith. They are like King Midas: everything they touch turns to gold.…So the moral of the story. Even if you’re ‘not into that,’ you should still pick up a copy of this book and read it.…So wake up your inner voyeur and take a peek into these character’s bed rooms. No matter what you’re into, you won’t regret it.

50 Shades of Gray critics slam bondage stereotypes
“The virginal Anastasia finds the world of handcuffs and leather whips both alarming and arousing. She soon learns, however, that Christian’s predilection for bondage and spanking is a consequence of being sexually abused as an adolescent.
While the books are fiction, this explanation plays into stereotypical attitudes toward the alternative sex lifestyle, says Tristan Taormino, a U.S.-based sex educator and author of The Ultimate Guide to Kink.
‘There is an assumption that the reason he’s kinky is because he is damaged, because he had a rough childhood,’ she says.
‘There’s this assumption that there’s this one-to-one correspondence, which in real life there’s isn’t.’”—Andre Mayer, CBC News
