The Mammoth Book of Women's Erotic Fantasies

Sonia Florens
Authors:
Sonia Florens

What do women really want? What are their most intimate erotic desires? The confessions gathered together in this volume come from 50 perfectly ordinary women from all parts of the United Kingdom, elsewhere in Europe, North America and Australia. They offer up their most private dreams and most closely kept sexual secrets. Some of their fantasies are shocking, others playful, but all are utterly captivating. The stories lay bare the often bizarre nature of female desire, a buried thread in sometimes mundane lives. Juices run freely at breakfast with Tiffany; another woman enjoys a knickerless ride on public transport; a student experiences an oral examination by the professor of poetry; a housewife joins Club Ped in a foot-fetish fantasy; another woman sleeps her way across America with Kerouac.Erotic and illuminating, these are stories for open-minded, sensual readers.

Alison Tyler

Called "a trollop with a laptop" by East Bay Express, "a literary siren" by Good Vibrations and "the mistress of literary erotica" by Violet Blue, Alison Tyler is naughty and she knows it.Over the past two decades, Ms Tyler has written more than twenty-five explicit novels, including Tiffany Twisted, Melt with You and The ESP Affair. Her novels and short stories have been translated into Japanese, Dutch, German, Italian, Norwegian, Spanish and Greek. When not writing sultry short stories, she edits erotic anthologies, including Alison's Wonderland, Kiss My Ass, Skirting the Issue and Torn.Ms Tyler is loyal to coffee (black), lipstick (red) and tequila (straight). She has tattoos, but no piercings; a wicked tongue, but a quick smile; and bittersweet memories, but no regrets. She believes it won't rain if she doesn't bring an umbrella, prefers hot and dry to cold and wet, and loves to spout her favorite motto, "You can sleep when you're dead". She chooses Led Zeppelin over The Beatles, the Cure over NIN, and the Stones over everyone. Yet although she appreciates good rock, she has a pitiful weakness for 80s hair bands.In all things important, she remains faithful to her partner of seventeen years, but she still can't choose just one perfume.

Donna George Storey

Donna George Storey was on maternity leave from her job as an adjunct professor of Japanese literature, in the spring of 1997. She started writing short stories during her son's naps, with the hope of publishing in small, respectable literary magazines. Then she bought a copy of The Mammoth Book of International Erotica and realized, once she'd patted down her skirt and pulled her jaw up off the floor, that she'd discovered her true calling - to write erotic stories that arouse both the mind and the libido. Since then, she's published over 150 erotic stories and essays in journals and anthologies such as Penthouse, CleanSheets.com, Best American Erotica, Best Women's Erotica, Sex in the City: New York, He's on Top, Lustfully Ever After, Bound by Lust and Dirty Girls. Many of these stories went on to appear in The Mammoth Book of Best New Erotica series. She's also the author of Amorous Woman, an erotic novel based on her own experiences living and loving in Japan. She writes a regular column at the Erotica Readers and Writers Association, "Cooking up a Storey" about her favourite topics: delicious sex, well-crafted food and mind-blowing writing. Writing erotica has enriched her life immeasurably, and she hopes her stories inspire others to explore the complexities of sexual pleasure in word and deed.
