9780060922368: Slow Hand: Women Writing Erotica

Slow Hand: Women Writing Erotica is an exciting anthology of new erotic stories by women, for women. In a world where men still expect to make the first move, this collection of nineteen tantalizing stories gives women their chance to have the last word.

From Kirkus Reviews:

The best of intentions motivated this collection of original erotic stories by and primarily for women. As editor Slung (Women's Wiles, 1979, etc.) explains in her introduction, she wanted to expand the genre on the high end, present fantasies enacted by real women (as opposed to airbrushed nymphets), combat contemporary prudishness, and...well, help women pursue better orgasms. However, in her effort to produce fresh material, Slung has also included a few strikingly unripe entries, like the bludgeoningly obvious ``Leaper,'' about two women who witness a suicide and then have sex, and ``The Footpath of Pink Roses,'' a rape vs. ravishment story that's politically correct to the point of ridiculousness. Things look up when pros like Sara Davidson take their turn. The author of Friends of the Opposite Sex (1984), etc., offers a frank and stimulating look at the sexual bending of a strong woman (``The Wager''), and Carolyn Banks's salt-sprayed tale of sexual initiation (``The Shame Girl'') is fine enough to hold its own outside the genre. Besides the unevenness, Slung's need to explain the meaning of her choices results in irritating pre-story exegeses; then she lets the authors also have a whack at explaining things once their stories end. It's enough to curl your toes. Someone should have told Slung to stop making sense. -- Copyright ©1992, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.

Review:

"Slow Hand satisfies on several levels: It's a titillating, illuminating and intelligent group of sexy stories written solely by women. The book's editor, Michele Slung, says that her intention in compiling this collection was to elicit in readers the same kind of tingling recognition that her friends felt a decade ago when they first heard the Pointer Sisters song that inspired her book's title. . . .What these authors have in common is writing abilityand hot b1ood." -- Newsday

"A ground-breaking collection." -- Cosmopolitan

"Why is it that women possess a far different understanding of erotica and the sexual act than men? . . . Slung explores and celebrates the difference via a collection of nineteen short stories from the female viewpoint . . . the conjuring of sensuality issuperior." -- Booklist
