Review of the Book Girls Who Bite

Did you ever wonder what you would get if you mixed desire and lesbian vampires? You get hot sex, that’s what you get, and you’ll get more than enough in the book Girls Who Bite, by Cleis Press. The book is edited by Delilah Devlin, which has also contributed with an excellent story of her own.

IMG_1280 This was actually my first lesbian erotica anthology, and I can assure you that you’ll be turned on whether you are straight, lesbian or in-between. It’s also almost strictly limited to girl-on-girl sex, as only one will include a vigorous male in their activities or a group of women. The book obviously includes lots of oral sex and fingering, but also a reasonable amount of BDSM, a little bit of anal play and a few other juicy surprises. Anyways, did you really expect to read vampire erotica without bites, dominance and some level of pain?

The erotic nature of the book is not limited to the fact that you have two women having sex, but also includes the raw longing and carnal cravings that you feel all around them. That atmosphere is particularly intense as the vampires tend to experience love and lust more strongly than humans and particularly when feeding. And they really have a hard time resisting what they want. That’s VERY sexy.

Another interesting thing about the book is that while the theme of lesbian vampires is pretty much set in stone, the stories greatly vary in the plot, location and even time. So if you think that you’re not going to get pleasant surprises with this book, think again and give it a chance. I doubt that you will be disappointed. I also liked the little hint of humor in a few stories that managed to make me smile.

The stories included are:
Bloody Wicked - Vivi Anna
Al Dente - Delphine Dryden
Dark Angel - Paisley Smith
Pet Door - Angela Caperton
Dark Guard - Karis Walsh
La Caída - Anna Meadows
The Crystal Altar - Adele Dubois
Beloved - Shayla Kersten
Bound Love - Christine d’Abo
The Gift of Litith - Myla Jackson
Madeline - A. E. Grace
Red Horizons - Victoria Oldham
Impundulu - Regina Jamison
Night at the Wax Museum - Delilah Devlin
She Knows I am Watching - Rebecca Buck

The stories in this anthology that I preferred were the stories that went beyond the usual vampire and sex story and included darker or brighter folklore. For instance, in the story Dark Guard, you can hear about were-panthers and were-lynx, and the type of setting and background information given were very interesting and definitely caught my attention. So I ended up wishing that the story could be longer so that I could know more. My favorite story is The Gift of Lilith, where the vampire didn’t have the characteristics of a vampire, and without giving too much information, let’s say that the story ends on a very loving and touching moment. It was very nice.

In conclusion, Girls Who Bite is another great collection of stories that will make you envy the strong desires and passion expressed by the protagonists. I had expected a little more sex toys to be used, but apparently, their tongue, fingers and bite are good enough. You can get this great book at this sex toys store I trust, and I would like to thank Cleis Press for sending it to me for review.
