Overall id say this was a waste of a credit, the voices are bad and the stories are bad.
If you can only have one audiobook of erotica on your listening device, this is it. From Susie Bright, the "grand dame" of erotica and the editor of The Best American Erotica series, comes this compelling collection, featuring 40 of the best and most relished contemporary erotic short stories to date.
I loved her honesty, her way of just telling it like it is, I want all of her books wish I had a few months to sit and read
Mmmm, the author's way of telling the story
I laughed so hard at quotes she mentions are just busting with humor
SUSIE I WANT MY RECORDED MESSAGE.....
This book is akin to other "best of" series. However it is not for the unadventurous. It has many stories which were not always "hot" but unusual or took people outside their comfort zone. This book is not for Prudes.
For Adults Only: Explicit language. Must be 18 years of age to purchase.
To mark its 15th anniversary, and the very last edition of the series, the top-selling erotica anthology achieves a scorching new climax with a special edition showcasing standout stories from the entire series as well as never before published pieces - plus a hot and edgy piece from Susie Bright herself.
"Definitely pushes the envelope"
Susie says it's time to start telling the truth about Plan B, a.k.a. the morning after pill. Then, Susie says Good Vibrations recent decision to convert from an employee owned and run co-op to a corporation marks the end of an era, but not the end of the sex-positive message. Finally, in the mailbag, Susie has two letters from two different men who ask roughly the same question: Does what I want to do make me gay?
Susie's always on the lookout for Christian Web sites that relate to porn and she's found a doozy: www.jcsgirls.com. The site bills itself as a way for the Church to reach men and women working in or "seeking fulfillment in" the porn industry. Then, in the mailbag, Susie critiques two personal ads placed by a couple interested in swinging.
Susie recently attended a benefit where special guest Paul Krassner posed the question: How come you can't get good acid anymore? Susie loved the ensuing discussion, and it all reminded her of her first communion. In the Catholic Church. Really. Then, in the mailbag, Susie answers a letter from a friend who wonders if she gets "too wet" during sex.
Susie takes a look at Senator Sam Brownback's arguments against porn. You know the ones, that watching porn leads to masturbation, which causes a neurological reaction that will make you stop wanting sex with your spouse. Those arguments. Susie then praises the TV show, Nip/Tuck and in the mailbag, a husband reports that his wife has multiple orgasms, but seems hates sex.
You'd think that the U.S. Department of Justice might have better things to do with their time these days, but Alberto Gonzales et al have recently initiated several busts of porn-related Web sites. And, if the investigation itself wasn't baffling enough, the sites they've targeted don't make legal sense. This week, Susie takes a look at some of the targeted sites. Then, in the Try This at Home mailbag, Susie helps a listener put the pieces back together after the perfect three-way blows up.
Susie's guest this week is Ariel Levy, a contributing editor at New York<.i> magazine and the author of the controversial new book, Female Chauvinist Pigs: Women and the Rise of Raunch Culture. In this fascinating and funny interview, 30-year-old Ariel and Susie talk about what people (mis)take for sexy these days and what it all means when feminism goes the way of most revolutions and is co-opted by they mainstream culture. Then, in the mailbag, a recently divorce man gets all bondage, no orgasm.
Susie kicks off this week with a choice item from the Craig's list Top 10 called >Porn Has Completely Destroyed Me. In this widely distributed rant, the anonymous author explains why he no longer will settle for anything less than a perfect ass. Then, it's a double whammy from the Try This at Home mailbag. First, one man tries some unusual ways to save his sexless marriage. Then, after a huge misstep at a polyamory potluck, a hubby desperately tries to get out of the doghouse.
Susie's good friend Ducky Doolittle has a new book out, Sex with the Lights On and Susie wants to celebrate by reading some passages. Ducky reveals the real secret to becoming hyper-orgasmic and how sex saved her live. Then, in Germany, some prostitutes are making their way from johns to geriatrics as they train to care for the elderly. Finally, in the Try This at Home mailbag, Susie is a little suspicious when she gets a letter from a man who says he can't watch porn because it offends him.
It's more on Plan B and the weird (some would say nefarious) reasons why it hasn't been approved by the FDA. This time, Susie says it's the perceived threat of crazed teen sex cults and conflicts of interest that are keeping Plan B at bay. Then, Susie has a winner for The House of Ass contest and a couple of other porn recommendations too. And, in the Try This at Home mailbag, Susie offers some tips to a young woman who wants to wow her lover.
Susie's excited this week by a new report from an economist who has basically figured out that dollar for dollar it costs more to sleep with men than with women. Go figure. Then, Susie offers you a sweet taste of the latest erotic novel she's been reading and loving. Finally, in the Try This at Home mailbag, Susie hears one man's defense for why marijuana is the best sex drug.
Susie says there's a new twist to the disturbing (on many levels) expose the New York Times ran in early 2006 about the world of underage Internet porn. After many months sitting on damming evidence, the U.S. Justice Department has done nothing. Meantime, three high ranking government officials have been busted for participating in underage Internet porn. Coincidence? Susie doesn't think so. Then, in her mailbag, Susie gets a follow up letter from an adventurous young woman who's seeking the perfect
While Susie says she's not impressed with the new iPod vibrators, they do make her think of all the things she consider essential to any well equipped sex toy goodie bag. From the best dildo (not what you think) to the pleasures of rabbit fur gloves, Susie says you don't have to go high tech or shell out big bucks to get off. Then, Susie reviews Little Miss Sunshine which she says is the most sex positive movie she's seen in a long, long time. In the mailbag, Susie offers some timely herpes advice.

Susie breaks from her usual format to tell you about her nearly life-long interest in former porn-star Linda Lovelace. Lovelace was the star of Deep Throat which was released around the time Susie was starting to wonder about sex. Her adolescent fascination evolved as Lovelace later denounced her porn-star days. And, in this show, Susie announces the rules of her new summer contest. Answer her three questions and you might win a FREE subscription to In Bed with Susie Bright!
Because prostitution is on everybody's mind this week, Susie brings back her fabulous interview with the D.C. Madam, Deborah Jeane Palfrey. Palfrey's escort business, called Pamela Martin Services, made the headlines after being busted by the U.S. government. She alleged that her clients included many Beltway personalities. Deborah Jeane tells Susie about her teenage years, how she coached her working girls to be safe, and why she still believes in love.
Susie Bright, founder of Best American Erotica, presents a classic, taboo-breaking collection of men’s erotic fiction - featuring the most unrepentant gay literary heroes of our generation. Legendary writers like John Preston, Samuel Delany, Steven Saylor/Aaron Travis, Lars Eighner, Dennis Cooper - who can imagine men’s intimate and transgressive lives without them?
In the 14th edition of this seductive series, erotica's veterans and up-and-coming new writers join forces to explore how tantalizing crossing the so-called Lolita gap between youth and middle age can be.
"the voice acting was not mood setting"
Christmas and the holidays are a fun and festive time for many. But for incest survivors, a traditional family get-together can bring on sad feelings and emotions. Today, Susie reads from Grace Davis' Abuse Survivor's Guide to the Holidays. The book includes helpful tips, ranging from how to stay centered to staying sober to taking note of who your chosen family is. And it reminds that, as an adult, your abusive family members are part of the past!
Susie speaks with author Jen Sincero about her new book You Are a Badass: How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life. It's about how to stop wallowing in your own self-pity, take action, and lose the excuses. As a life coach, Jen has had a long history of dealing with kooky and great experiences, a history that enables her to make your life work for you. Susie also loves another of Jen's books: The Straight Girl's Guide to Sleeping with Chicks. This is a fun conversation filled with lots of tidbits that will help you to get going.
Each week Susie answers a letter from a listener. Today's show puts the spotlight on our "Try This at Home" mailbag, in which a loyal listener writes that she was bothered by a recent show when Susie spoke about the best positions for sex - but only for heterosexuals. What about us lesbians? says our letter writer. Well, Susie has a lot of great advice for everyone, so today, here they are: tips for homosexuals.
Susie has found a very sweet and funny article about what really happens at summer camps. Written by Maureen O'Connor for New York magazine's thecut.com, the story includes 10 memoirs from teenagers about their sexual awakenings while away at camp. There are fake orgasms, shared showers, and time spent with older (and hornier) camp counselors. One story recounts riding horses and really enjoying the up-and-down motion. Another describes naked swimming in a pond....
Today, Susie has an interview with Eric Schaefer, author of Sex Scene: Media and the Sexual Revolution. Professor Schaefer teaches at Emerson College in the Visual and Media Arts Department. His new book looks at exploitation and sexploitation within films, tabloids, novels, and audio recordings. Chapters include "Wet Dreams", "Porn Goes to College", "Beefcake to Hardcore", and "33 1/3 Sexual Revolutions Per Minute", to name a few. Susie and Eric discuss the origins of X ratings, Jane Fonda's movie orgasms, Swedish erotica, Russ Myer's nudies, and more.
Why is a new AIDS preventative pill under attack? Truvada has been dubbed a party drug by conservatives, who see it as an aid to continuing risky sex, rather than something to help people with HIV. Susie reads from Out magazine's article "Why I Am a Truvada Whore". This tongue-in-cheek story shows how mixed up the debate is and likens the fear of HIV protection to the 1960s-era fear of giving birth-control pills to unmarried couples.
Susie starts off today's show with a sexy topic: European accounting! Okay, if that doesn't turn you on, you're not alone - but Bloombergview.com reports that the European Union wants to cash in on prostitution, drugs, and other illicit businesses to help boost GDP. These "shadow economies" are being scrutinized and may be forced to join national statistical accounting systems. Susie looks at how the underground world, although illegal, may help these countries' overall numbers to look good on the books.
Susie starts today's show with a look at the medicinal benefits of orgasms. Huh? Sure it feels good, but now researchers have proven that hormones released during the Big O can help lower pain. In a study testing pain levels in women, thresholds were significantly altered by vagina self-stimulation. Okay, says Susie. Now when cramps or a headache begins, it's time to make a beeline for the bedroom!
Susie spends the first part of today's show looking at a controversial idea that could help some very lonely people get relief. If prostitution were legal, could we avoid rampages like the recent Isla Vista massacre?
On today's show, Susie interviews one of today's most popular porn stars: Asa Akira. Asa has been working in the adult-entertainment business for six years and has garnered many awards for her work in over 400 adult films. At the AVN awards show, sponsored by Adult Video News, she's won for best anal scene, best double-penetration scene, and best all-girl three-way sex scene. She's also been named best porn star of the year. Susie and Asa talk about how to stay healthy in the business, why being dominated can be so hot, and how to write smutty haikus.
