This exciting 2015 volume of Best Sex Writing features a number of significant bloggers and some of the most important stories of the past two years. Alexandria Goddard is the blogger who made the important connections in the historic Steubenville Rape Case; Epiphora is the most renowned and saucy sex toy reviewer who has legions of dedicated followers; Lux Alptraum has recently sold the wildly successful Fleshbot and taken an editorial position at Nerve.

Internationally acclaimed musician Ember Swift recounts her sexual appetites while she was pregnant.

A rarity -- romantic erotica focused on male couples in committed relationships -- Take This Man comes from one of the top-flight gay fiction writers, Neil Plakcy. Many erotic stories focus on the thrill of first contact, but Take This Man is thrillingly different, taking a close look at how much sexier an encounter can be when the two men involved have been together for long enough to make a commitment to each other. Formalized or not, the fact remains that knowing what turns your partner on -- and vice versa -- makes encounters even hotter, especially when the erotic encounter is an expression of an emotional bond.
In those first heady days of a relationship, couples can barely keep their hands off each other. But as relationships mature, sex can get pushed further and further down the list of priorities. Suddenly, instead of a passionate date you can't wait to keep, sex might start to feel like one more nagging to-do. It doesn't have to be that way. And it doesn't require quitting a job or wearing dirty clothes to reclaim the spark. Couples just need a few moments of tender connection a day (and a few pointers from Canada's leading sexpert), and soon they're looking for ways to devote even more time to amazingly hot sex. Josey Vogels has created a fun and approachable guide for couples that is packed with tips, tricks, and time-guided ideas to try. With this book on their bedside tables, readers start having better sex in no time. What you learn from this book: * Ways to sexually connect to your partner in five minutes or less * Massage techniques * Why romance matters * The importance of self-pleasure (and learning new private tricks!) * Sex on the go * Tantric sex for busy couples

In "Underground Operator" two men on a nearly empty subway platform indulge in rough, anonymous sex that lets them momentarily forget the stifling summer heat. "Donuts to Demons" finds a self-described "rock-n-roll artfag" searching for a lover "as patient and gifted and generous as he advertised on Craigslist."

Shane Allison is more daring than any other gay writer today, and he pushes the boundaries further than anyone else. In Homeboys we ride shotgun with the wild and fancy-free outlaws of the streets. What happens when two horny members from LA's notorious Crips and Bloods are involved in a secret love affair? Or when a few members of the Greasers and the Socs meet for hot group sex in an abandoned freight train? Feel what it's like to keep it on the DL with Del, Norteños-style, and read all about how to get hazed by Asian Boyz. This bold and so-bad-it's-good book explores the erotic lives of thugs, drug runners, mischievous miscreants, dirty cops, prison gang bangers, and warriors of the wild.

The country estate, masters and servants, mystery and intrigue, sex and money. All go hand in hand in these turn-of-the-century tales of what goes on behind the manor's closed doors. Does the master lure the butler to the phonograph room for a romp behind the sofa, or does the stable boy have a tryst with the footman while the lord longingly watches on? Does the aristocrat drop his foppish manners when the butler helps him undress? And do the classes exchange more than pleasantries when the lamps are dimmed and the ladies retire for the evening? Rob Rosen has gathered the hottest stories of romance and sex between wealthy aristocrats and the hard-working estate staff, all with a pre-World War I backdrop, including the fashion and art and the latest inventions of the day. War is years way, the estates are huge and sprawling, the fashionably elite have too much time on their hands, while the toiling underclass are always on the lookout for a means to a brighter future -- no matter whose bed they end up in. Think Downton Abbey and Upstairs, Downstairs, but with enough sex to make the town vicar blush.

What is it about lesbian cops that push all the right buttons? Sure, there's the uniform with handcuffs, gun, and billy club, and the confidence, authority, and sense of danger. But there's something more that gives these uncompromising women their commanding, overwhelming sexuality. The top-flight fiction writers tapped by Lambda Award-winning editor Sacchi Green in Women with Handcuffs capture that irresistible force -- and channel it into fiercely erotic stories. Delilah Devlin's cops play their "Only Game in Town" in a Southern city that's small without being small-minded. Elizabeth Coldwell's handcuffed stripper in "Torn Off a Strip" meets her match, while Lynn Mixon's witness protection marshal finds (and gives) a "Healing Hand." If you like your policewomen on the case and under the sheets, the hotly subversive stories in Women with Handcuffs are for you.
Submission takes many forms in this collection of 69 short stories, from straining in bondage to taking a spanking, being put on display, and beyond. By turns bratty and worshipful, these submissives will go to great lengths to fulfill their naughtiest fantasies and are rewarded splendidly by their masters and mistresses. A student returns to show his former teacher who's really in charge, a photo shoot becomes an opportunity for erotic games, and a man revels in his wife's past as a former dominatrix. These brats, masochists, and hungry-for-sensation subs go above and beyond for the ones they adore, pushing themselves to new limits while their devious dominants put them through their paces. Edited by Rachel Kramer Bussel, these short stories sizzle with the tension of erotic power play, commands followed, and service willingly performed.
Benjamin Law considers himself pretty lucky to live in Australia: he can hold his boyfriend's hand in public and lobby his politicians to recognize same-sex marriage. But as the child of immigrants, he's also curious about how different life might have been had he grown up in Asia. So he sets off to meet his fellow Gaysians. Law takes his investigative duties seriously, going nude where required in Balinese sex resorts, sitting backstage for hours with Thai ladyboy beauty contestants, and trying Indian yoga classes designed to cure his homosexuality. The characters he meets -- from Tokyo's celebrity drag queens to HIV-positive Burmese sex workers and Malaysian ex-gay Christian fundamentalists to Chinese gays and lesbians who marry each other to please their parents -- all teach him something new about being queer in Asia. At once entertaining and moving, Gaysia is a wild ride and a fascinating quest by a leading Australian writer.
