Muy, muy, caliente
Is there a comparison? LOL
As always, she never lets me down. I have heard some people read and it was just ridiculous. But my favorite sexy librarian has the perfect voice for this hot erotica.
I did want to, I couldn't though. And one story I listened to more than once (the one with the stranger int he elevator...holy cow! I died)
Let me know when the even bigger book of Orgasms arrives! LOL
Exciting, Stimulating, Different.
I usually enjoy all erotica, GAY, Straight, Kinky, BDSM, it is what stimulates the mind and gets people off. Erotica, like any other fiction is written to entertain and stimulate. (The reader doesn't have to love every story) However if you are an individual who enjoys your own sexuality, then you should be able to understand and enjoy anyone who expresses their desires no matter how different or strange, (consenting adults). Yes there is roll play, and play with toys and some homosexuality. These are stories about the Big O. How people get them and give them. I found every story a delight.
I only heard Rose Caraway one other time and she is a wonderful narrator, even when talking from a man's point of view.
When you have so many stories I know I can't pick one. I found it well worth the cost for the over 8 hours of entertainment.
I've listened to many of Rachel Kramer Bussel's anthologies. She knows how to pick stories that will work, I always look for books by Rachel Kramer Bussel, or Alison Tyler, Violet Blue, Delilah Devlin. Especially when putting together anthologies. They are also great writers, and ofter end up in many of these anthologies. GIVE US MORE.
Hot, fun, surprising
The remote control story, because I had no idea where it was going or what would happen next.
She makes even an innocent line drip with innuendo, so when she does get to the sexy parts, it's all the hotter. It's an entirely different experience than simply reading the book, not only because my own voice isn't all that great, but hearing Rose made me consider parts of the stories I hadn't considered before.
No, because there were ones I wanted to listen to again and a few I was happy to just listen to once. They are so short that listening to more than 10 at a time for me was a bit of overkill but they are perfect nighttime listening to get you in the mood.
Definitely a keeper, and took orgasms, which you'd think would be a dime a dozen in erotica, and made them the focal point without seeming like "are we there yet?" Some of these stories I'd have been happy to keep listening to find out what happens next!
Absolutely! The Big Book of Orgasms is already a fabulous collection of sexy flash pieces (<1200 words) to give you a taste of every type of fantasy—but hearing Rose Caraway read the book out loud made it twice as delicious. Her narration clearly conveys tone and the individuality of each character, and she reads each piece with such a clever, sexy voice, you can't help but keep listening.
Too many to name! However, some of these already incredible stories really popped with her reading, almost as if they were written to be read aloud. There are many of these, but some of the highlights for me were "Hard Knocks" by Malin James, "Matinee" by Suleikha Snyder, "Weathering the Storm" by Salome Wilde, "Hellfire" by Valerie Alexander, "The Big Cat" by Cecilia Duvalle, "Seeing is Believing" by Heidi Champa, and "There" by Sommer Marsden. Oh, and I confess I had a bias in that I got a huge kick out of hearing my own story read by Rose Caraway, too. :)
Wanted to, yes, but unfortunately couldn't! On the other hand, the nice part of spreading the audiobook over several days is that you get a good dose of delightful, sexy stories and then still have more to enjoy later—in the car, at the gym, while you're doing dishes. This book is sure to satisfy!
Yes, because you don't have to be a regular reader of erotica to enjoy it. Even if one story doesn't float your boat, there are plenty more, plus there's a lot of humor. It's not all balls to the wall (pardon the expression) sex.
Probably the couple "Remote Control" about a remote control that lets its owners have some naughty fun. It went in a direction I wasn't expecting. I also liked the one about the woman wearing blue jeans rubbing against her in that way and the woman turned on by books - who doesn't love books? (though maybe not *that* much)
Rose Caraway did an amazing job - I plan to listen to more of her recordings. Her voice is both sexy and soothing and that certainly helped.
I don't know if I'd call it extreme but I definitely surprised myself. I'm more of a vanilla reader but I liked some of the stories like "Hard Knocks," about a woman coming from being spanked. Again the humor and playfulness of both the writer and the narrator made this much more than your average spanking story.
These are all very short, but aren't too short. It's the perfect length to get a brief taste and I had time to listen for a few minutes even on busy days (I spread out my listening).
When it comes to erotica, this book hits it out of the park. Rose Caraway's voice is perfect for these deliciously sexy tales, and she tells them without a hint of reservation or pretension. Other audiobook readers in erotica can really ruin a sexy scene; this book was refreshing for its natural and very sexy voice work.
The Big Book of Orgasms holds up well in my collection of Cleiss Press erotic anthologies and "Best Of" books. It delivers the same high-quality, incredibly sexy, diverse stories, with it's own spin. Perfect for a quick bedtime read.
Caraway's voice is wonderful, soft and alluring. She gives a very sexy life to each story.
There were actually several, which of course was the point. :) My favorite thing about this collection is the variety of stories; several of them spiked my interest in their own way. I particuarly liked "Count Out The Strokes" and "The Gallery Exhibit".
One reviewer made a really sexy suggestion of reading these stories to your lover before bed. With the freedom of the audiobook format, I think this suggestions is even better. I like to set my iPod into its dock and let it play for both of us so we can listen together.
Yes, definitely. They are short enough that I didn't get bored and are easy to listen to a few at a time. There are a few I plan to replay for my partner and listen together.
Gotta Have It and Frenzy, because all feature very short but hot stories.
I liked the sensualness of "The Massage" (who wouldn't want a massage like that?), "Steamy" and the movie theater setting of "Matinee" and "Meeting Cute." Also "Squirt" was very hot. It's hard to pick a favorite but I liked that each one offered a little something different, some super down and dirty and some cuter.
It turned me on and at times made me laugh, especially "Remote Control," a genderbending, outrageous and over the top sexy story that is worthy of a comedy show. "Me Vengo" was also pretty amusing.
Rose Caraway is a wonderful narrator whose voice I could listen to reading just about anything. She gives her all to each and every story and even though they're short, she makes you feel like you don't want them to end.
Sexy orgasmic fun.
All of the stories were hot and memorable. But my favorite was "Hard Knocks" that involves some very sexy spanking scenes.
I have heard several of her performances. All of them are great. This one is no different. Rose is the perfect narrator for these types of stories. She has a very sexy voice and pulls you into the story. She is fantastic at being very sexy and believable without overdoing it like so many other narrators do with erotic stories.
Rachel Kramer Bussel has once again selected amazing authors for this anthology. Whatever you are into this book probably has it. I love the format of this book,The stories are long enough to be good and short enough to leave the rest up to the imagination. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone. Well worth the purchase or use of a credit. So many good stories you will want to revisit. And definitely a fun book to share with a partner
This is one sexy listen!
As in any collection of this nature, not all the stories in this multi-varied anthology will strike a chord with all listeners. Rachel Kramer Bussel has put together quite a diverse collection of stories here, each with its particular variation of the happy ending. Assembled as they are in rapid fire succession, the effect is akin to setting off a mat of fire-crackers. The cumulative effect is nothing short of explosive!
I don't think a better narrator could have been chosen for this collection than Rose Caraway. She adapts her sultry voice for each story perfectly, and as she does with her podcasts, provides for a wonderful listen. Nice choice, Audible!
What made the experience of listening to The Big Book of Orgasms the most enjoyable is the very wide variety stories. We loved that it touched on so many different ways to enjoy sexual contact.
The story Remote Control. Who hasn't wanted to trade places with your lover? Very creative and fun.
Yes, I'm a fan of her podcast. My wife and I love everything she does.
Ohh-Yess.But it wasn't' laughing or crying, if you know what I mean.
Rachel Kramer Bussel did an excellent job of putting together a terrific group of sexy stories. I'm thinking I'm going to go get Rose Caraway and Rachel's other collaboration, 69 stories of sudden sex with my next credit.
