Antoniou, Laura (editor). “Best Lesbian Erotica 2015”, Cleis Press, 2014.
Desire and hot sex are the topics that we read about in the twenty stories in this anthology of lesbian sex edited by Laura Antoniou. We see just how much times have changed with the variety and diversity of the stories here. Included are works by Lee Ann Keple and Katie King, Deborah Jannerson, Nicole Wolfe, Alexandra Delancey, Nan Andrews, Tin Horn, Sacchi Green, Catherine Lundoff, Avery Cassell, Miel Rose, Lisabet Sarai, Jean Roberta, Anna Watson, Cammy May Hunnicutt, Fiona Zedde, Theda Hudson, Beth Wyle, Andrea Dale, Xan West and BD Swain. It is absolutely amazing what a little liberation will do and we find that now people are much more willing to speak out than ever before. Erotica itself has not changed but now we will have the ability to not only write but to be open about it. Whether the sex comes on the first meeting or later, the fact that we can talk about it is a major accomplishment. What really makes erotica special and we see that here is that fantasies become realities.
Each story is a gift and if I, as a man, can say that I can just imagine what my sisters will have to say. These stories are very hot but they are also well written and believable. We are now part of a brave new world and the women in this collection have stepped up to the plate. If you are looking for an exciting read adventure, pick up a copy of “Best Lesbian Erotica 2015”.
