Introduction: Orgasm Is Just the Beginning
As Barbara Carrellas writes, there are so many types of orgasms, more than any single book could cover, but within these pages, you will not only find numerous types of orgasms, as well as the varied characters who experience them, you will also discover different motivations for getting off. Some have a tried and true method, some are willing to take a chance on a new sexual practice--or partner. Some of these characters orgasm frequently; some are aching for the chance to share their body with another person. Some let their orgasms be controlled by a lover; some actively take control of their climaxes.
"You amaze me," the nameless protagonist of B.D. Swain's opening story "The Beginning" proclaims. You--readers, authors, orgasmers--amaze me with your boundless sexual hunger and creativity. I've been writing and editing erotica for over a decade, but part of why it never gets old is because of the richness, diversity and nuance I find in the stories that come (no pun intended) my way. They fuel my own imagination and show me that I can always learn more about orgasm, about desire, about sex.
The format of 1,200 words or less means these are extremely short stories, but I hope you'll find, like I did, that what they lack in length they make up for in hotness. As with my previous short-short anthology Gotta Have It: 69 Stories of Sudden Sex, all the pieces you hold in your hand, even the shortest ones ("The Park," by Elise Hepner, clocks in at 249 words; "Her Lover Is a Flame," by Cecilia Tan, at 308) offer a snapshot of eroticism that draws you completely into its folds. You might consider each one a teaser, an appetizer, the beginning of a fantasy world you can place yourself into and choose your own orgasmic adventure as you consider where the story might go after the last word printed on the page.
Sometimes less is more, and if these stories leave you wanting to see them continued, that's a good thing. They are, like the narrative in Swain's opener states, "just the beginning." Very likely you'll find a type of orgasm, a sex toy, a scenario, a position, or a fantasy you'd like to see represented here that may not be. If so, please write yours and continue the conversation. If your orgasm doesn't look or feel the way these characters' climaxes do, that's perfectly okay. I want to see us expand the possibilities for pleasure, orgasmic and otherwise, not add to the umpteen ways we're told we "should" orgasm or have sex. Just as a physical orgasm, however you define or experience that sensation, doesn't define the end of a sexual encounter, a literary orgasm should not mean you are done interacting with the story. I've re-read these pieces, and the numerous submissions I received for this book, multiple times, and each read offers me something new to consider. I envision The Big Book of Orgasms as one you'll want to revisit, to pick up and read aloud from your favorites to a lover, to keep next to your bed, to tuck into your travel bag.
I'm especially pleased to be publishing so many authors in this collection for the first time in one of my anthologies. There is a power and depth to these voices that I hope resonates with you.

Dr. Ruth once said legendary editor Rachel Kramer Bussel "is only satisfied if you come and come again." Bussel, the editor of the bestsellers Orgasmic and Gotta Have It, has captured 69 top erotica writers serving up steamy scenarios all focused on the Big O. The characters in The Big Book of Orgasms have fun exploring their desires and reaching new depths of pleasure with lovers who range from sweet to sweetly kinky.
A man's sexy strut incites a woman to take matters "In Her Hands" in Tenille Brown's story, while the narrator of Emerald's "Payback" rekindles an old flame and ignites a spectacular passion. Bussel's own searing "I'm on Fire" reveals all the pleasures to be gained through obedience. These are climaxes you'll want to relive more than once.
