If the title in any way entices you, then you’ll certainly enjoy this collection of 21 short stories that explores male and female perspectives of cunnilingus, mainly heterosexual with just a splash of girl-on-girl…
The blurb: The primal sense of taking in the essence, taste, smell, and sexy up-closeness of a lover is a powerful aphrodisiac that affects one physically, mentally, and emotionally. Once this special connection is made, the heat of desire, passion, and lust focus before one’s eyes and tie arousal directly to them. Tasting Her explores the ultimate joys of oral sex from a distinctly male point of view.
The Review: This was an exquisite feast of erotic writing, without a single weak story among the collection, providing a range of different perspectives on an often underrated facet of human sexuality that can be so easily misunderstood by both men and women, even in this modern and liberated age.
Readers will quickly know from the title whether it’s for them, and while even the editor reveals an uncertainty over the topic at hand initially within her introduction, the sheer beauty and fever-inducing prose within her anthology must have put paid to that uncertainty, for her presentation is flawless.
Particular favorites of mine among the strong line-up included Craig T Sorenson’s wonderful “Suspension”, Adelaide Clark’s filthy “Happy Hours”, James Drew Dyer’s quirky “Dropping the Hint” and Teresa Noelle Roberts’ preconception-challenging “The Dominance of the Tongue”, but any anthology that starts with a Jeremy Edwards story is holding out a great promise for the rest of the journey, and the other stories certainly don’t disappoint either, including the editor’s own sweetly satisfying “Cunnilingus 101″.
As a collection, it’s educational and enlightening, and as far as the heat factor is concerned, as mouthwatering as it gets for any reader for whom the title alone can provoke that irresistible quickening of the heart beat, and for me it will no doubt be read and re-read again as a true favorite.
