Short erotica tends to get shafted in literary discussion. Novels, novellas, even short stories are held to lofty ideals but theĀ secondĀ you put an amorous anatomically-correct snowman in a story it’s trash. Ridiculous.

Tune in every Tuesday to hear our gang of librarians review some of the coolest, wackiest, weirdest erotic short stories available for sale online. We bring you some of most absurd, occasionally wonderful dirty stories that dare not break 100 pages.

My Valentine’s Day Ghost | Erotica Review

CW: Non consent for one brief scene, nonhuman, ghost, invisible, unprotected sex, oral

Join Victoria and Gavin as they discuss what COULD have been a fun romantic story about a hard-working single woman getting her rocks off with a fun ghost friend. Instead we get this confusing hodge-podge of what happens when a horror erotica writer tries to be sweet and fails at it.

CW: emergency room scene, unprotected sex, assault

A murder in Thailand, a deadly love triangle, any satisfactory erotic content at all. These are all things A Beautiful Murder promises, then fails to deliver.

Ravaged by the Gingerbread Man | Erotica Review

 

gingerbread

CW: nonhuman, food, unprotected sex, dubious consent

We’ve all thought about it, modeling a little donger onto a gingerbread human effigy for giggles. Well consider this story Jarred and Alicia have reviewed a cautionary tale for how hard that can turf out on you.

By the end, if you see something you think is icing, it probably isn’t icing.

magic thumb.jpg

CW: tf, transformation, gender transformation, anal, fisting, magic, stretching

This week we’re talkin’ magic, but not the kind you see on the Vegas strip. Join Gavin and Erin as they dive deep into a story serving an inherently problematic kink but also features some of the better creative writing we’ve seen on the show thus far.

Also, after almost two years of this damn show, we finally got a snowball scene.

Office Embarrassment | Red Light Rewind

office embarassment thumb.jpg

CW: fat shaming, fat humiliation, farting, public humiliation

Gavin got engaged! Unfortunately the whole ordeal upset scheduling a bit, pesky real life and all that. In this classic episode a sick Gavin joins Jackie in reviewing a piece from friend of the show Molly Coddles that involves cartoonish weight gain, humiliation, and a healthy amount of fart-based humor.

So, yeah, it’s kind of seasonally appropriate with all the holiday food we’re eating? I dunno, I’m a description not a cop.

Thanksgiving Hot Springs Satyr: An erotic fairytale | Erotica Review

satyr

CW: unprotected sex, smells, anal, group sex

Buckle up for the longest RLL episode yet! Diane and Jarred sink their teeth into an incredibly dense 50 page epic about free love, smells, and a “satyr” who fucks a lot. Thanksgiving isn’t really germane to the story, so… that’s a bit of a ripoff.

shaving thanksgiving.jpg

CW: pregnancy, lactation, radiation, humiliation

Twas the night before Thanksgiving, and all though the house, Gavin lost the motivation to finish the rhyme. What better way to celebrate a holiday based on genocide than to review a wacky erotica about a pregnant woman getting shaved by an omnipotent news anchor? Stick around for the end where resident Australian Erin is given a crash course in Thanksgiving culture!

swapped thumb.jpg

CW: body swap, unprotected sex

What better way to welcome in the cold days of winter than to cuddle up with a saucy Regency sex romp? Well too fucking bad, we’re reviewing How Many Dukes Can I Take? Join Gavin and Bridge as they bumble around this somewhat incestuous and very bisexual tale about a husband taking the most obtuse route possible to setting up a foursome.
