Take My Sweet Confession (January 2012)
The new year is nearly upon us! Where did 2011 go? We’re trying out a new tradition in 2012 — instead of the cliched resolutions, we’re going to focus on confessions… erotic confessions. What’s your secret craving, your naughty fantasy… what makes you breathless? What ever it may be, you’re bound to find something that will spark your interest in Sweet Confessions— Erotic Fantasies for Couples — edited by Violet Blue or Take Me There —Trans and Genderqueer Erotica — edited by Tristan Taormino.
In Sweet Confessions, Violet Blue showcases inspirational “you can do it, too” tales that are perfect bedtime reading for lovers. These outrageously sexy stories break the mold in literary excellence. The lust-inciting fantasies include spanking, exhibitionism, role-playing, three-ways and sensual adventures that will embolden real couples to reach new heights of passion. “Waisted,” by Angela Caperton, is a Cinderella story of corset fetish sex, while Liv Olson’s couple in “All Shaved Up” take turns daring each other to smooth down and go further. “The Female Gaze” by Rachel Kramer Bussel is a showstopper of sexual confession and romantic lust and risk, and Alison Tyler’s nooner in “Counterpane” proves just how exciting the familiar can be when you fully unleash your fantasies. In Violet Blue’s own words, “The stories I’ve chosen are explicit, well thought-out, cleverly crafted and arousing as hell. Trust me. I tried it all at home.”

Next we’ll be celebrating and embracing that which is often overlooked or ignored. In mainstream media, the erotic identities, sex lives and fantasies of transgender and genderqueer people are often oversimplified, sensationalized or invisible. Take Me There is an erotic collection unlike any other, celebrating the pleasure, heat and diversity of transgender and genderqueer sexualities. These stories will take you from San Francisco to Israel, from heartache to lust, from ballet shoes to a bondage table, from M to F and F to M—and in between and beyond.
