“I read Mr. Sexsmith’s writings and appreciate the passion there. I knew Say Please would include a great collection of stories by writers who exude … passion in their writing. … Each story drew me in and kept my attention … many left me wanting more!” —Smokebelly’s Corner
“I’m a fan of erotica and love readings anyway, but after reading a few of the stories in Say Please, I can hardly wait till May 2nd to hear these aloud in Babeland. This event will be HOT and SEXY for sure. I mean, Miss Indigo will be here performing and I can only hope that means reading AND stripping, but we will have to wait to see. … At first, I was planning on reading the whole book, but after I got started, I realized I wanted to savor it longer. I know there are other great stories in there just waiting for me to discover them. I’ve always been a fan of anthologies for this very reason. You can pop around the book, picking out what to taste next and when to move on. You may find something that doesn’t suit your fancy, and that’s fine, because there will surely be several others that become your next favorite one handed read. ” – Audrey at Babeland
“There’s lots of stories and it’s the kind of book where you read a story and put it down and come back to it another time for another story. I need these kind of books in my life, where I can take a small literary journey and enjoy small bites.” —Lolita Wolf on Leather Yenta
“Each story takes me somewhere new. Places I’ve only touched the surface of in my mind are brought to life within the words and imagery. Well written stories, to me, add to the eroticism. Words are sexy when woven together in a beautifully written erotic story. These stories are incredibly well written making them amazingly sexy.
There’s something for everyone in this book. Listen to Daddy and pick up your copy from Cleis Press.” — Wendi Kali, A Stranger in This Place
“Say Please is my new back alley.
In an effort to be a responsible reviewer instead of slipping away for some…well, quality time…I kept both hands free to jot some notes. But the fact is, there’s very little here that didn’t thrill me in some way. Sinclair did a beautiful job picking out a bit of something for all of us who like it a bit (or more, if you’re me) rough. But what really got me was this: I’ve been reading erotica since I was too young to be honest about. Hot, yes, it’s always hot. In every book there’s something that dissolves me, that makes me dog ear a page, that makes the book something to rifle through the drawer for time and again. Still, you always compromise. I try to be rational, I know not everyone is turned on by everything, but honestly, I just want more.
More sex. More queer. More spanking. More submission. More power. More begging. More knives. More leather. More butches. More “Yes, sir.” More raw. More danger. More edge.
Reading Say Please is like standing in a room with a pack of people who could make you melt just by looking at you. Whether you give or take (or swap), you are going to have the time of your life. In every single story I found something to dog ear, something to warm the drawer. ” — Meridith Guy
“This book is delicious. There is no other word for it. …Every story… left me worked up, wound up, and aching for more.” — Jameson, FTM Butch Dude
“My rating: 5 of 5 stars. BDSM is not always my thing. But good writing is, and this book is chock full of it. You might be wondering why I read it, if I’m not generally turned on by leather, or pain, or the wide-variety of things that BDSM is. To be honest, the first reason is that it was edited by Mr. Sinclair Sexsmith. They are like King Midas: everything they touch turns to gold.…So the moral of the story. Even if you’re ‘not into that,’ you should still pick up a copy of this book and read it.…So wake up your inner voyeur and take a peek into these character’s bed rooms. No matter what you’re into, you won’t regret it.” – Ali Oh at Made of Words
