Fast Girls Book Review

Cover for the Book

Fast Girls is a Cleis Press erotica novel edited by Rachel Kramer Bussel. It’s 198 pages long and includes 20 different stories. This book is marketed as “Erotica for Women”. The book follows the same formatting and style that most of the other Cleis Press novels use. The cover features a woman lying on her back with the camera focused on her face and the rest of her body is pretty blurred out though there is implied nudity. This is a book cover that you could possibly take out in public to read. It doesn’t look that obvious unless you look closely at the cover text or the back-text descriptions.

The entire theme for this novel is “Fast Girls”. Which apparently is a popular phrase that I knew nothing about until reading this novel. It’s apparently usually slang for a slut. However, in this book, Rachel attempts to “reclaim” the word in a positive way. All of the characters in this book are females who know what they want and go after it. They don’t care if that makes them look like a slut – they know what they want, and they know they want to get it. It’s actually a really neat theme for an erotic book, and I honestly would have never thought of that theme myself.

The book is pretty heterosexual-centered. It’s not something that I minded at all, and there are a couple homosexual stories, but it’s mostly heterosexual. As I say in other reviews, that’s honestly to be expected when you consider the heterosexual-to-homosexual ratio that exists in everyday life.

For the most part, almost all of the stories in this novel were pretty sexy and erotic. There were a couple that, while reflective and interesting to read, they just weren’t what I was looking for erotic-wise. (I also have figured out I have a huge pet peeve with large paragraphs. I wish people would split them into smaller ones.) Most of the stories, though, are really erotic, and the fact that all of the woman in this book go after the male instead of being chased after is an erotic element in itself. All the women in this book know what they want out of sex, and they set out to definitely get it. The fact that the women are enjoying themselves this openly sexually is really erotic.

In “Married Life” by Charlotte Stein, a woman who has a very large sex drive is driven insane by the fact that her husband only desires sex about once a month. When she finds that he’s been writing erotic in her spare time, she’s aroused, angry, and amazed by the topic that he’s writing about. Later on that night, she indulges him in the fetishes she writes about, and a new sex life for the two of them is about to begin. The author did a great job describing the plot while still making it really erotic. It’s a longer story, but the entire story is really captivating, and you what to find out what is going to happen.

In “Let’s Dance” by D. L. King, a kinkster female sees a guy dancing at a club and decides he’s hers. She comes up to him, is very direct in what she wants, and they go back to her apartment together. After finding out that he shaves his pubic hair, it leads into a discussion of why he did it, and it ends up including ropes and a rope suspension. The story is written wonderfully, and while there isn’t much of a focus on the sexual aspect at all, the erotic way that she’s so direct is foreplay enough. Sometimes I found myself wondering if it bordered on non-consent though.

In “Communal” by Saskia Walker, a college girl listens into a three-some going on in the communal shower – wishing she could be that sexually liberated. For the next couple weeks, she visits that same shower and masturbates in it thinking about what she heard. Another college guy picks up on her habit and walks into the bathroom to listen in. The door latch is loose though, and he gets to watch too. As any sexually liberated woman would, she invites him into the cubicle. So what happens when the people from the original threesome walk in too? Overall, a great sexy story that portrays the main character’s arousal really nicely.

So overall, while there were a couple stories that bored me enough to want to skip over them mid-read, the vast majority of these stories were really hot, very arousing, and just really well-written. The stories are different from the norm because the females go after what they want, and that in itself is an arousing plot twist. The couple of uninteresting stories don’t even compare to all of the amazingly arousing stories, so I’d easily say that this is worth a read. I recommend you learn more about Fast Girls then pick it up at Amazon here.
