The Victorians wrote some of the best and most enduring erotica. For such a tightly-laced age, people spent a lot of time thinking about things carnal. Jules Verne, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Mary Shelley, H.G. Wells, et al enthralled us with their visions of new possibilities. The rich and slightly decadent visuals of the steam age lend themselves perfectly to the new carnality of post-punk era. And, of course, what is repressed will be even more exciting once the corset is unlaced. Steampunk, even without sex, is erotic; with sex, it's over-the-top hot.
A widowed lady engineer invents a small device that can store the energy from sexual frustration and convert it to electricity to help power a home. Teresa Noelle Roberts shows us what it can do, confronted with sexual fulfillment. What volume of steampunk would be complete without a tale of sailing ships and the men who sail them? If your taste runs to sexy pirates in space, Poe Von Page will delight you with the mutinous crew of the Danika Blue and their new captain. Then there's the very special room on the top floor in the House of the Sable Locks, a brothel where sexually discriminating men go to have their fantasies fulfilled. Even if a man daren't put those fantasies into words, Elizabeth Schechter's "Succubus" will give the madam all the information she needs with which to make her clients happy.
There are brothels, flying machines, steam-powered conveyances, manor houses, spiritualist societies. The following stories afford intelligently written, beautifully crafted glimpses into other worlds, where the Carnal Machines won't fail to seduce you, get you wet or make you hard so, lie back, relax; a happy ending is guaranteed.

A great assortment of short stories by great authors. Some stories are fantastic, some are just amusing. However defiantly worth a listen for those who enjoy the genre. Sexy, Steamy, HOT!
Each story was read by a different narrator, and gave it a bit more juice.....if you get my drift. I love Erotic collections, because it gives you a chance to here new authors.
No I haven't but I'll be looking for them in the future.
Yes several, but I don't like to influence other people in listening. Like I said if you enjoy Erotica, and Steampunk , I think you'll enjoy this group of stories. Many are 5 star, a few 4 star, and maybe 1 3 star, but that's just me.
I think it was well worth the time to listen to and I will listen to agan
i wish audible would let one hide such books with a plain brown cover. i dont want my husband to know i own such wicked works.. it might give him ideas. on the other hand...
I work in a library, so you would think I read a lot, but I feel really guilty if I sit just to read. That is why audio books are great!
Oh yes. This was one of the most amazing collection of erotica I have ever experienced. It made me so hot. Just listening was a delight to all the senses.
So many different perspectives makes for a potpourri of titilating imagination.
Steampunk meets 9 1/2 weeks
