Best Women’s Erotica of the Year, Volume 1 is a collection of short erotic stories by twenty two authors. It has a good mix of sexual orientations, racial diversities and variety of sex acts. Each story averages at 5%/15-20 minutes reading time. I don’t re-read books but I can certainly cone back to read my favorite stories in this one.

I read 10 of the stories, and below is the brief summary of it. You can avoid reading if you want to go in totally blind.

★ SCENTS & SEXUALITY by Doriana Chase ★

★ TWO DOMS FOR DINNER by Dorothy Freed ★

Sir moves behind me, spanking me with the long-handled leather paddle, which makes a loud slapping sound as it strikes. Charles, facing my front, gazes into my eyes as he tweaks my nipples and then amuses himself by lightly slapping my breasts, making them swing back and forth.
