Anyone who thinks that female domination in literature is a modern day phenomenon should investigate the mythological succubae, references to which date at least to Adam’s first wife, Lilith. Variations of these supernatural entities have been central characters in innumerable stories, books, plays, films and television programs.
Accomplished erotica editor D.L. King recently tapped a pool of very talented writers to create a collection of 21 decidedly naughty succubus stories that will change the way you think about mythology – Seductress: Erotic Tales of Immortal Desire.
A couple of the stories stick fairly close to conventional interpretations of how a demon seduces a mortal male, but many stray far, far away from the tried and true route and even venture into Sapphic dalliances. Their variety, imaginative plots, and overall erotic content should satisfy the palate of erotica readers with a taste for kink.
My personal favorite is “Phone Hex,” a story in which Ruby helps her fellow succubae go high tech by creating an app called Xtasee, which puts users into a light trance while it runs a preprogrammed phone hex to summon a succubus using a virtual version of the Karenzikov ritual. This story combines sly humor with very raunchy sexual hookups.
As a general rule all erotica has two mistresses that compete for its readers’ enjoyment, story and sting. On a five star scale, Seductress: Erotic Tales of Immortal Desire merits five stars for story and four stars for sting. It is definitely a keeper.Powered by Sidelines
