Bussel (the Best Women’s Erotica of the Year series, editor) serves up a spicy array of 20 provocative erotic shorts, all centered on women reaching orgasmic peaks. The deliciously unusual “Love and Porn in a Retirement Home” by Claire Cupp showcases an elderly widow discovering and enjoying porn after a lifetime of religious repression. Evan Mora’s “Envy” features a hot m/f/f threesome and a strap-on. Gender-fluid Poppy has their first orgasm at a women’s sex party in Sienna Saint-Cyr’s “House of Fingers.” “After” by Katrina Jackson sees a new mom struggling to feel sexy again after the birth of her child. And Angela Addams’s “What You Need” follows a narrator who knows just how to distract and de-stress her workaholic partner. The stories are commendably inclusive, featuring characters of a variety of ages, ethnicities, and sexualities and so ramping up the number of readers who will find someone to identify with within the scorching pages. This sizzling anthology is sure to fuel fantasies. [em](July) [/em]
