In Susie Bright's own contribution, "Story of O Birthday Party", she recounts her lover's elaborately orchestrated birthday gift: a re-creation of Pauline Réage's classic S/M tale, with Susie at the center of the action. Joe Maynard enters a love/hate relationship with a two-million-dollar sex toy in "Fleshlight". Greta Christina's "Are We Having Sex Now or What?" asks the provocative question: What defines authentic sexual connection and experience?

Definitely pushes the envelope
The stories in this collection attempt to go beyond the standard Tab A/Slot B clinical porn which too often gets classified as "erotic." Although not all the stories were to my taste, and indeed there were a couple I didn't finish listening to, I applaud the authors and Ms. Bright for attempting to raise the genre to the level of art.

I wish I had read the reviews first!
I am afraid I am with the others before me, this one is not worthy... I'll admit that I didn't make it all the way through, but at better than 75% it was obvious to me that it was not quality writing and it couldn't be salvaged in the last few stories ... Do yourself a favor and look elsewhere!
