"Hot Erotica for those who enjoy the genre"
Exciting, Stimulating, Different.
I usually enjoy all erotica, GAY, Straight, Kinky, BDSM, it is what stimulates the mind and gets people off. Erotica, like any other fiction is written to entertain and stimulate. (The reader doesn't have to love every story) However if you are an individual who enjoys your own sexuality, then you should be able to understand and enjoy anyone who expresses their desires no matter how different or strange, (consenting adults). Yes there is roll play, and play with toys and some homosexuality. These are stories about the Big O. How people get them and give them. I found every story a delight.
I only heard Rose Caraway one other time and she is a wonderful narrator, even when talking from a man's point of view.
When you have so many stories I know I can't pick one. I found it well worth the cost for the over 8 hours of entertainment.
I've listened to many of Rachel Kramer Bussel's anthologies. She knows how to pick stories that will work, I always look for books by Rachel Kramer Bussel, or Alison Tyler, Violet Blue, Delilah Devlin. Especially when putting together anthologies. They are also great writers, and ofter end up in many of these anthologies. GIVE US MORE.
"Not a single word wasted"
Hot, fun, surprising
The remote control story, because I had no idea where it was going or what would happen next.
She makes even an innocent line drip with innuendo, so when she does get to the sexy parts, it's all the hotter. It's an entirely different experience than simply reading the book, not only because my own voice isn't all that great, but hearing Rose made me consider parts of the stories I hadn't considered before.
No, because there were ones I wanted to listen to again and a few I was happy to just listen to once. They are so short that listening to more than 10 at a time for me was a bit of overkill but they are perfect nighttime listening to get you in the mood.
Definitely a keeper, and took orgasms, which you'd think would be a dime a dozen in erotica, and made them the focal point without seeming like "are we there yet?" Some of these stories I'd have been happy to keep listening to find out what happens next!
"One Hell of a Sexy Reading"
Absolutely! The Big Book of Orgasms is already a fabulous collection of sexy flash pieces (<1200 words) to give you a taste of every type of fantasy—but hearing Rose Caraway read the book out loud made it twice as delicious. Her narration clearly conveys tone and the individuality of each character, and she reads each piece with such a clever, sexy voice, you can't help but keep listening.
Too many to name! However, some of these already incredible stories really popped with her reading, almost as if they were written to be read aloud. There are many of these, but some of the highlights for me were "Hard Knocks" by Malin James, "Matinee" by Suleikha Snyder, "Weathering the Storm" by Salome Wilde, "Hellfire" by Valerie Alexander, "The Big Cat" by Cecilia Duvalle, "Seeing is Believing" by Heidi Champa, and "There" by Sommer Marsden. Oh, and I confess I had a bias in that I got a huge kick out of hearing my own story read by Rose Caraway, too. :)
Wanted to, yes, but unfortunately couldn't! On the other hand, the nice part of spreading the audiobook over several days is that you get a good dose of delightful, sexy stories and then still have more to enjoy later—in the car, at the gym, while you're doing dishes. This book is sure to satisfy!
Yes, because you don't have to be a regular reader of erotica to enjoy it. Even if one story doesn't float your boat, there are plenty more, plus there's a lot of humor. It's not all balls to the wall (pardon the expression) sex.
Probably the couple "Remote Control" about a remote control that lets its owners have some naughty fun. It went in a direction I wasn't expecting. I also liked the one about the woman wearing blue jeans rubbing against her in that way and the woman turned on by books - who doesn't love books? (though maybe not *that* much)
Rose Caraway did an amazing job - I plan to listen to more of her recordings. Her voice is both sexy and soothing and that certainly helped.
I don't know if I'd call it extreme but I definitely surprised myself. I'm more of a vanilla reader but I liked some of the stories like "Hard Knocks," about a woman coming from being spanked. Again the humor and playfulness of both the writer and the narrator made this much more than your average spanking story.
These are all very short, but aren't too short. It's the perfect length to get a brief taste and I had time to listen for a few minutes even on busy days (I spread out my listening).
"Naughty in the best way"
I don't know if I'd say it's better, but sometimes I just want to sit back and have someone read to me and Rose Caraway is the perfect person to do so!
I have a huge library and love bookstores so I had a special fondness for "Book Lover." As a Weather Channel viewer, I liked "Weathering the Storm" for its unique take and "Come On" because it just starts off with a bang.
It made me laugh a few times, but even the funny stories had both sexiness mixed in with the naughtiness as well as tender moments. I like erotica that makes me feel like the characters care about what's going on and even when there were multiple partners (or even one partner) in this book, there was something more going on, which is saying something when they were all so short.
Some of these stories pushed my buttons in surprising ways but I can honestly say there were none I disliked. I liked some more than others but they all were well written and interesting. There was a mix of true to life type stories, like a woman getting over a migraine, to more outrageous ones about public sex and such.
"Orgasms of all kinds"
I liked that even though orgasms are often part of erotica, these stories brought something a little different to the topic. They each offer a little taste of what motivates someone to get off, whether by themselves or with a partner, and each were totally different.
I liked that these were varied, from movie theaters to outdoors to malls to steam rooms to bedrooms, as well as varied in terms of sexual orientations and sometimes multiple partners.
I listened to all of them, and I imagine if I was reading I may have skipped a few but she made me want to keep listening and I'm so glad I did. I discovered a few gems that surprised me at how much I liked them, especially the ones about spanking and BDSM.
I wouldn't have thought I'd like Icing on the Cake but I did, very much. I want to seek out more of the author's work and more femdom stories, though I like that there are vanilla and softer stories in the mix throughout the book too.
"Perfect bedtime listening"
I liked that the stories were about all kinds of people, not just one particular fetish or sexual orientation.
This is the first one but it won't be the last! Her voice was smooth and easy to listen to, sexy but not too sexy.
In short, this book turned me on. Not every single story to the same degree, but the overall feel was perfect for nighttime listening. It got me in the mood.
Pretty high up!
I liked that it took me places I wasn't expecting. I read and listen to a lot of erotica and erotic romance and these stories, while very short, were vivid and powerful and got my heart racing.
I've listened to one other and this is Rose at her best. Her voice is perfectly suited to these kinds of stories, whether the protagonist is male or female. I could picture every scene.
Anything Goes Sex
I plan to listen to these again--they're deceptively short, so you have time to relisten and savor them.
"Diverse Collection of Stories"
Love her voice, I could listen to her read the dictionary and find it sexy
This was a diverse collection of stories, I really enjoyed this book. Out of 69 stories there was many that I liked and some that I loved! Instead of saying why I didn't like so and so instead i'm going to explain why I liked the ones I liked (trying not to give away the plot of the stories) and why people should listen to them.
How you christen a bed by Thomas Roche
I loved it! It made me laugh, and hear hear for big beds.
All you do is play by Annabeth leong
This one caught me by surprise it was really good and wow just listen to it.
Hard Knocks by Malin James
Hum... who doesn't like a good spanking!
The Gallery Exhibit by Chris Komodo
Good story with a weirdly fulfilling ending because you don't know what's going until the final seconds of the story.
White by Preston Avery
I like the idea of all things being made up of colors even our orgasms this story had me thinking, I like when erotica or romance makes me thinking beyond.
Scarecrow by Giselle Renarde
Wasn't sure what to expect from an orgasm story called Scarecrow but it was actually really good.
Weathering the storm by Salome Wilde
Cute little story about the weather channel.
Pushing Boundaries on Public Transport Victoria Blisse
Nice short story about exhibitionism on the bus.

The Massage Lady Cheeky
A whole different kind of massage.
Beer and Orgasms Jeremy Edwards
Interesting, not sure if it's my thing but that's why I like this book because it is diverse in stories and themes and even though this kind of thing in real life would make me go eww it oddly works for the story.
Cooling Agents Marina Saint
Ice! ~shivers~ I want a cool down like in this story!

I’m on Fire Rachel Kramer Bussel
As a person who enjoys wax play for the fun of it but also loves the art of it this story was so hot for me! Love the ending.
Book Lover Donna George Storey
As someone who LOVES books, I really liked this story. There's a thrill to smelling books either the smell of ink on newly printed book or the smell of time on old books ~shivers~
Come On Raziel Moore
I love how the opening line "I want you to come on me" is said by Rose it just sets the tone for the whole story love, love, love it!
Squirt Evoë Thorne
One of my favorite stories of the whole book SQUIRTING! Need I say more people? It's an awesome story.
The whole book was so fun to listen to, each story on it's own is wonderful add Rose narrating, plus the selection of these stories by Rachel Kramer Bussel and this book is an orgasm for your ears. Really enjoyed it.
"That's a spicy book!"
Muy, muy, caliente
Is there a comparison? LOL
As always, she never lets me down. I have heard some people read and it was just ridiculous. But my favorite sexy librarian has the perfect voice for this hot erotica.
I did want to, I couldn't though. And one story I listened to more than once (the one with the stranger int he elevator...holy cow! I died)
Let me know when the even bigger book of Orgasms arrives! LOL
