1 Rubber Chicken+1 Sugary Vagina+1 Sommer Storm
One story, I can handle. And, in the case of her Sudden Sex anthology, where all stories are shorties, I can even handle three. Since the stories are so quick (which, I must say, is my favourite kind of erotic story. I have a short attention span. I like a story that gets straight to the action), I decided to review a sequence of stories:
RUBBER CHICKEN by Thomas S. Roche
I chose to start here because who can resist a title like that? This story gets right to it--just what I like. The under-the-table crotch-rubbing at a dull banquet struck a chord with me, because grabbing in public is something my girlfriend does all the time. And then she puts the question to me, as Melinda does in this story: "Do you want me to stop?" Oh, that question is nearly impossible to answer! Rubber Chicken is a great story--hot and horny. Really made me want to fuck something. Which brings me to the next story in this sequence...
SUGAR UPSETS MY VAGINA by Kristina Lloyd
This story was a need-to-read, again, based solely on the title. It reminded me of the Christmas my girlfriend put this in my stocking:
Anyway, Sugar Upsets My Vagina has nothing to do with getting fucked by a giant candy cane. The story has a dream-like quality as it describes a sex carnival. A very visual story. I felt like it was playing out in front of me as I read it. I can imagine this story appealing strongly to readers who appreciate big, strong alpha male types. That's not my bag, but I still enjoyed it.
CLEMENT by Sommer Marsden
Because I love Sommer Marsden. As a writer and as a person on the internet. This story is short--maybe 3 pages, and they're tiny pages--but the impact is huge. There were certain sentences--very short sentences--that gave me chills. This is the best of short. It does so much with so little. A beautiful story.
Sudden Sex is edited by Aliston Tyler, published by Cleis Press, and available pretty much everywhere.
