One Hell of a Sexy Reading

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

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.

Which character – as performed by Rose Caraway – was your favorite?

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. :)

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

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!

Unexpcted Fun

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

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.

Who was your favorite character and why?

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)

What about Rose Caraway’s performance did you like?

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.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

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.

Any additional comments?

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).

Orgasms of all kinds

What did you love best about The Big Book of Orgasms?

I liked that even though orgasms are often part of erotica, these stories brought something a little different to the topic. They each offer a little taste of what motivates someone to get off, whether by themselves or with a partner, and each were totally different.

What did you like best about this story?

I liked that these were varied, from movie theaters to outdoors to malls to steam rooms to bedrooms, as well as varied in terms of sexual orientations and sometimes multiple partners.

What does Rose Caraway bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I listened to all of them, and I imagine if I was reading I may have skipped a few but she made me want to keep listening and I'm so glad I did. I discovered a few gems that surprised me at how much I liked them, especially the ones about spanking and BDSM.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I wouldn't have thought I'd like Icing on the Cake but I did, very much. I want to seek out more of the author's work and more femdom stories, though I like that there are vanilla and softer stories in the mix throughout the book too.

Perfect bedtime listening

What did you like best about this story?

I liked that the stories were about all kinds of people, not just one particular fetish or sexual orientation.

Have you listened to any of Rose Caraway’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This is the first one but it won't be the last! Her voice was smooth and easy to listen to, sexy but not too sexy.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

In short, this book turned me on. Not every single story to the same degree, but the overall feel was perfect for nighttime listening. It got me in the mood.

Wonderful

Where does The Big Book of Orgasms rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Pretty high up!

What did you like best about this story?

I liked that it took me places I wasn't expecting. I read and listen to a lot of erotica and erotic romance and these stories, while very short, were vivid and powerful and got my heart racing.

Have you listened to any of Rose Caraway’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I've listened to one other and this is Rose at her best. Her voice is perfectly suited to these kinds of stories, whether the protagonist is male or female. I could picture every scene.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Anything Goes Sex

Any additional comments?

I plan to listen to these again--they're deceptively short, so you have time to relisten and savor them.

Diverse Collection of Stories

What about Rose Caraway’s performance did you like?

Love her voice, I could listen to her read the dictionary and find it sexy

Any additional comments?

This was a diverse collection of stories, I really enjoyed this book. Out of 69 stories there was many that I liked and some that I loved! Instead of saying why I didn't like so and so instead i'm going to explain why I liked the ones I liked (trying not to give away the plot of the stories) and why people should listen to them.

How you christen a bed by Thomas Roche
I loved it! It made me laugh, and hear hear for big beds.

All you do is play by Annabeth leong
This one caught me by surprise it was really good and wow just listen to it.

Hard Knocks by Malin James
Hum... who doesn't like a good spanking!

The Gallery Exhibit by Chris Komodo
Good story with a weirdly fulfilling ending because you don't know what's going until the final seconds of the story.

White by Preston Avery
I like the idea of all things being made up of colors even our orgasms this story had me thinking, I like when erotica or romance makes me thinking beyond.

Scarecrow by Giselle Renarde
Wasn't sure what to expect from an orgasm story called Scarecrow but it was actually really good.

Weathering the storm by Salome Wilde
Cute little story about the weather channel.

Pushing Boundaries on Public Transport Victoria Blisse
Nice short story about exhibitionism on the bus.

Look at Yourself Maxine Marsh
Interesting another one that made me think.

Under the Table Elizabeth Coldwell

By the Beat T. Fox Dunham
Ohhhh real good! Just listen!

The Massage Lady Cheeky
A whole different kind of massage.

Beer and Orgasms Jeremy Edwards
Interesting, not sure if it's my thing but that's why I like this book because it is diverse in stories and themes and even though this kind of thing in real life would make me go eww it oddly works for the story.

Cooling Agents Marina Saint
Ice! ~shivers~ I want a cool down like in this story!

I’m on Fire Rachel Kramer Bussel
As a person who enjoys wax play for the fun of it but also loves the art of it this story was so hot for me! Love the ending.

Book Lover Donna George Storey
As someone who LOVES books, I really liked this story. There's a thrill to smelling books either the smell of ink on newly printed book or the smell of time on old books ~shivers~

Come On Raziel Moore
I love how the opening line "I want you to come on me" is said by Rose it just sets the tone for the whole story love, love, love it!

Squirt Evoë Thorne
One of my favorite stories of the whole book SQUIRTING! Need I say more people? It's an awesome story.

The whole book was so fun to listen to, each story on it's own is wonderful add Rose narrating, plus the selection of these stories by Rachel Kramer Bussel and this book is an orgasm for your ears. Really enjoyed it.

Perfect for erotica newbies

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Because it's not off-putting. It eases you into the sexy stuff, which was perfect for me as pretty much a newcomer to erotica. Yes, some are pretty filthy (in a good way), but others are more lighthearted but still sexy.

What other book might you compare The Big Book of Orgasms to and why?

Nothing I can think of because this is all pretty new to me.

Have you listened to any of Rose Caraway’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I've listened to her podcast, so if you like that, you will probably like this.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

69 flavors--and then some

Any additional comments?

I liked Blue Jean Baby, about a woman walking around commando in blue jeans in public. Not sure if I would try it myself, but it is one I've definitely thought about when I've tried on jeans, and may have nudged me into getting ones a little tighter than I would normally get.

That's a spicy book!

If you could sum up The Big Book of Orgasms in three words, what would they be?

Muy, muy, caliente

What other book might you compare The Big Book of Orgasms to and why?

Is there a comparison? LOL

What about Rose Caraway’s performance did you like?

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.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

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)

Any additional comments?

Let me know when the even bigger book of Orgasms arrives! LOL
