Yes, Sir  – Edited by Rachel Kramer Bussel

This is one of those books that makes one gleeful to see on the shelf, and, if you’ll pardon the pun here, own. As a well-established anthology junkie and submissive, I was anxious in my appreciation for both facets and found this book to be a true gem.

Filled with lots of yummy dominants with a very heavy (all-but-one) focus on males in positions of power, Yes, Sir explores not only the goosebumps-inducing physical side to play but also that delicate and exquisite framework of mental bondage. The peace of play between a top and bottom as they progress through a scene, the zen of submission and Domination, is captured eloquently here by a passel of talented writers, and elegantly arranged by Ms. Bussel. Indeed, her own contribution is squirm-worthy and seems more than able to make a girl’s fingers reach for her hitachi as a reading companion.

It’s not to say I enjoyed every entry in the book – a few (When Harry Met Penny, Ribbons) weren’t written in a style that appealed to my taste, but may very likely spark imagination or lust in readers than myself. Others are as close as a Dom breathing against the back of your ear…hot, heavy, and impossible to ignore in all the good ways. These erotic interludes (In The Corner, The Power of No, The Day I Came In Public) turned me on and ensured a very lucky night to my somewhat blindsided partner. Bedtime stories, indeed!

I enjoyed the book so much, in fact, that I’m looking into getting its counterpart, “Yes, Ma’am” to add to my collection of erotica. As a final note – There are several twists sprinkled throughout the stories, making this volume interesting both as a whole, and as individual offerings. “Yes, Sir” also contains a lot of stories that long-distance lovers and partners on busy schedules could easily enjoy and maybe even emulate.
