Audible Editor Reviews

Twenty of the sexiest stories of the year are compiled in Best Sex Writing 2013, a broad range of informative, provocative, and analytical viewpoints on sex and erotic culture. Some of these stories, both fiction and nonfiction, are funny and titillating, while others can be disheartening and sad.

Narrated with flirtatious eloquence by Kristin Kalbi and hunky coolness by Fleet Cooper, the collection is led off by acclaimed author Jonathan Letham, of Motherless Brooklyn fame. This will stimulate both the brain and the body.

    I'm Audible's first Editor-at-Large, the host of In Bed with Susie Bright -- and a longtime author, editor, journo, and bookworm. I listen to audio when I'm cooking, playing cards, knitting, going to bed, waking up, driving, and putting other people's kids to bed! My favorite audiobooks, ever, are: "True Grit" and "The Dog of the South."

    "The Sexual State of the Union Today"

    This is a cutting-edge collection of current thought on the state of sexuality in the United States.

    In so many ways, we are making progress, becoming more open, and in so many other ways, things are as dark as ever.

    As Carol Queen states in her forward, “It’s easier to fill a conference hall with thousands of kinky people than it is to get a public school to represent sexuality as something other than a danger.”

    Thankfully, Rachel Kramer Bussell has been manning the boat and brings the best writing on sex and sexuality this year. From having babies to a submissive's manifesto, to reproductive rights, there’s something to learn for every piece in this collection.
