Traditionally a domme is defined as a female dominant in a BDSM relationship, but dommes are found in all types of couples - heterosexual and lesbian - and exert their dominance in a variety of ways. This book contains a generous collection of short stories and novellas that will broaden your idea of what constitutes a female-led D/s dynamic while arousing you with kinky erotic scenarios ranging from first-time submission to immersive pony play. Take a walk on the wild side and let the wicked imagination of Jim Lyon, femdom author extraordinaire, help you fully appreciate the appeal of dominant women.
This has hot tales and hot tails. If you like femdom’s, this one is for you. Well written and great narrator.
Dommes: Femdom Erotica
I think this is the first time in my life I ever finished an anthology. The only other times I read from an anthology was during English Literature classes, and we only read a few poems and stories then. I have never been a fan of a collection of short stories. I usually prefer one story from beginning to end. This anthology: Femmes, did grab and hold my attention.
The book comprises of many stories all dealing with a Domme. Most stories were somewhat absurd which is exactly the style I like. The stories often dealt with a new sub to be trained by an experienced Domme. Many piercings were set in the book, specifically in the perineum. There were also many 'daily whippings'.
What I didn't like was the pacing in some of the stories. A few times the major happenings, like a deflowering or a branding, happened without any leading into it. I tended to happen 'all of a sudden' because the circumstances arose. I would have made it a bigger deal with days of anticipation. I also got confused with names now and then. Sometimes I lost track of the characters or the gender of the characters. I didn't always enjoy how the voice actress told the story. Specifically, at the beginning of the book, I thought she was trying too hard to be sexy. She talked with a breathy voice which was not always appropriate or necessary. Had she just read the words, it would have been enough.
Overall I certainly enjoyed the book. I even enjoyed the story about pony play. The author has a good grasp of BDSM-dynamics, and I did find certain scenes arousing. I couldn't always listen to the book because I would have an appointment with family later and you can't be all red-eared and aroused when they come over for tea. I would recommend this book to people who are into femdom, obviously, but also people are just looking for a good erotica set. You will get value for your money with this book.
