Host Rachel Kramer Bussel's new anthology Please, Sir

If you've enjoyed In The Flesh over the years, you may be interested in my latest erotica anthology, Please, Sir: Erotic Stories of Female Submission, which was just published by Cleis Press. We'll be showing the official book trailer on May 20th at True Sex Confessions Night (it doesn't totally fit the theme, but is fun). Click here to read the book's introduction and table of contents. You can buy it now on Amazon or click the link above for other places to purchase it.

Here's me reading my story from Please, Sir at In The Flesh. It's called "Your Hand on My Neck."
