Synopsis

This collection of 22 erotic short stories has been compiled as an erotic tool for heterosexual couples to explore men's and women's perspectives on sex and to act as a catalyst for dialog about the subject. Barbach has selected erotic short fiction from both male and female writers that illustrates what each gender finds appealing about sex. The collection subtly amplifies the general notion that men's erotic images are more visual and visceral and that women tend to find erotic content in the emotional development of the relationship. Many of the stories have very explicit descriptions of copulation, swinging, group sex, domination and submission, and bisexual fantasies there are also those of marital tenderness to touching romance. Each story is a sensual journey. "Waiting for Claire" by Bruce Zimmerman takes us to an upstairs room in steamy Tangier. Katherine DeRosa's "Mirror, Mirror" goes deep into the mind of a woman as she prepares to see her lover. "Nighthawks" by Erik Jendresen brings a painting to pulsing life. And "Shy" by Deena Metzger explores a territory where intimacy has no limits."An anthology of erotica for couples from the mild to the wild - very hot and strongly recommended." Forum
