This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
Someone who enjoys being bludgeoned by story after story about people's sexual fetishes.
Would you ever listen to anything by the authors again?
It depends on if they branched out into different genres.
What do you think the narrator could have done better?
Most of the narration was good it was the stories that were lacking.
What character would you cut from The Best American Erotica 2001 (Unabridged Selections)?
The characters weren't the issue.
Any additional comments?
This was my first erotica reading and I thought I would check it out. I found that it's not for me but others may enjoy it if it's your thing.

The first collection I read - the 2002 collection - I couldn't listen to the end. It was just too weird, too out of anything am used to, I just couldn't continue. This is better, maybe my sensitivity has dulled. Maybe because it's shorter. A number were a little too much for me though, but some I really liked - like the guy that offered himself for facesitting by 20 or so random women. I kept thinking, he did this for 2 hours??? Really? How didn't he suffocate?
