Review: Please, Sir

The last time M and I went to Good Vibrations (our last time for a while, I’m afraid) I told him I really wanted to buy some erotica. It’s not often I get the chance to have a real sexy book on my hands, and obtaining my lustful prose online — sometimes fanfiction — isn’t always the best media outlet. I like books, fresh paper to hold in my hands, something to tuck into a large purse for a bus ride or a day at the park. Unfortunately, it took me at least half an hour to pick something. I’m terribly indecisive, and I had finally given up when I noticed a novel buried behind a few others on the shelf. Upon further inspection, it turned out to be “Please, Sir: Erotic Stories of Female Submission“. Instantly I knew I would be taking this collection of stories home.

The cover of the book, while not at all discreet, is sexy and beautiful. It features a dark-haired beauty staring out from the glossy front, wearing a magenta corset that only barely hides her moderate cleavage. It’s as if she’s staring you down, daring you to open the first page. Damn, I love a good look.

This collection, edited by Rachel Kramer Bussel and published by Cleis Press, features twenty-two stories featuring women in the submissive role in various situations. There are women who are always submissive to their husbands, women acting out fantasies, women caught off guard, women in business negotiations, women meeting new partners, and Dommes being topped for the first time in a while. I really believe this has something for every submissive woman who likes being dominated by men. That being said, this is not a book for men who enjoy being dominated by men.

After a discussion over some similar erotica last week, I realize I should mention that this collection is not for the faint of heart. It involves some activities such as hard fucking, public bondage, spanking, caning, and scalding showers that may not cater to some. This is not fuzzy, light-hearted BDSM.

Here are a few one-line summaries of my favourites. I wouldn’t want to ruin it for you, would I? :

Because He Can

Nicky is usually good at keeping secrets…until her husband David finds out about her sexy co-worker Adam – who David then invites to dinner.

Mommy’s Boy

Michelle is a Domme who meets an old friend and begs to be taken down, no limits.

I liked in this one how some safer sex techniques were incorporated. Marc wipes Michelle’s ass with antiseptic wipes after a hard caning, and makes sure to give her water throughout their play session. I appreciated that.

Just What She Needs

Karen failed to pick up fresh linguine for dinner and now is going to be dealt the punishment she really needs.


If any of these  one-liners  sound like they’d tickle your fancy, pick up Please, Sir from Good Vibes or your favourite sex shop. I was glad I did.
