The final edition of the best-selling Best American Erotica series, featuring erotic stories by: Susie Bright, Steven Saylor, Greta Christina, and Alicia Gifford.
In Susie Bright's own contribution, "Story of O Birthday Party", she recounts her lover's elaborately orchestrated birthday gift: a re-creation of Pauline Réage's classic S/M tale, with Susie at the center of the action. Joe Maynard enters a love/hate relationship with a two-million-dollar sex toy in "Fleshlight". Greta Christina's "Are We Having Sex Now or What?" asks the provocative question: What defines authentic sexual connection and experience?
