Review: Going Down- Oral Sex Stories edited by Rachel Kramer Bussel
Going Down: Oral Sex Stories is a wonderfully written anthology filled with stories to excite as well as gift the reader with new ideas to make their own sex lives more enjoyable. I found that these stories, for someone like me, have given me new direction and insight that I might not have had for a long time, if ever, without reading them. When I say someone like me, I mean someone who doesn't necessarily like giving oral sex. I love to receive it, but never quite got into the giving part. Yes, I know that makes me selfish, but it helps to have a loving partner, who still loves me, even with all of my quirks.
There were a few specific stories that spoke to me, stories that turned me on so much, I had to close the book after I finished them and start the book up on a different day. The favored few is what I shall call these stories from now on.
Favorite number 1-
"Pretty Dull" by Charlotte Stein
Basically, it is about an extramarital affair, but it is so much more than "just an affair".
Although having an affair is a bad thing, fantasies abound where the main character gets what they weren't getting at home. To me, this was prime fantasy material to be tried with The Husband. Now don't get me wrong, I don't want to have an affair. But there is that element of excitement, you know about that excitement that you get when you're being a " bad girl". This story made me want to be a " bad girl".
Favorite Number 2-
"Milk Moustache" by Jacqueline Applebee
It is hard to say what this one is about, but what I took from it was- The main character became excited by something that she heard, that she had never realized would excite her.
I love new ideas and I really love new ideas that I can share with the man I love. The best relationships, I believe, are the ones that you can go home and share the craziest things in your head and they don't look at you like you are crazy. That's why this story appealed to me so much. Her boyfriend was right there with her every step of the way, getting " dirty" with her and he never once said, that's too out there for us to contemplate. You gotta love a comfortable relationship like this.
Favorite Number 3-
Well, I started to write the story that was my 3rd favorite and I realized that I was having a hard time deciding. It feels like just about every story was a favorite, in some way or another.
"Stacked" by Logan Zachary - I have never been so turned on by 2 men before, it was very enlightening.
"Getting Something out of it" by Annabeth Leong - WOW! I have never thought of my partner's member as "mine". Of course, I say it's mine, but that is totally different than really believing that it was mine. This story pulled me in a whole new direction, one that I couldn't have anticipated if I had tried.
"Bubble Dance" by Jeremy Edwards - 1 sentence - I will never think of bubble gum the same ever again!
I could keep going, but I think you get the idea. This is a GREAT anthology, but really, do you expect anything less when it has Rachel's name on the cover? I expect great things from RKB's work and she has delivered every time, without fail, definitely the mark of a great artist. Buy it! You won't be sorry.
