Product description

Product Description

A traditional source of sexual titillation for adult readers, fairy tales historically boasted licentious themes before being cleaned up for the consumption of children in modern times. Seasoned erotica author Mitzi Szereto restores the explicit sex in these 15 tales — and adds some provocative surprises of her own. Here the bawdy humor of French fable meets the sublime eroticism of ancient Chinese myth; a not-so-virgin damsel weds a Prince Charming with a shoe fetish; Little Red Riding Hood discovers Grandma’s bed is open to any stray wolf; and a Japanese monk stumbles onto an S/M scene behind a forbidden door. Each tale is prefaced by a brief introduction telling its history and the sexual culture in which the work was originally composed.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing even for what it is 26 November 2013
By Pinkdiamond - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I've been leaving book reviews here on Amazon for maybe two years now and after all this time I am doing something I said I would NEVER do because I absolutely hate it when other reviewers do it and that's review a book before I even finish it (if I do). As a rule, I don't like the idea of leaving a review when a person can't even bother to finish it because only then do I feel an opinion is thorough and justified.

However...

I can honestly say without a shadow of a doubt that after reading fifty-plus percent of this book, my opinion is standing that this book is not at all what it could be as the so-called erotic fairy tales they're supposed to be. And for those of you reading this who might feel skeptical in the first place since they are fairy tales in the first place, I bade you to pick up any book if not all of Nancy Madore's Enchanted Bedtime Stories for Women series to see how its done. Seriously, never has the retelling of Beauty and the Beast ever been so arousing. Or Snow White. Or Cinderella. Or Goldilocks. Really, the list continues.

Anyway, this book isn't disappointing because of the story choices. On the contrary, I really like the diversity of the stories in this book and like the history lesson introducing them. The author seems very knowledgeable about the background of each story in that they (sorry, can't tell the gender of this author by name alone, although I guess its a woman? Mitzi?) share the various origins of the story as well as the erotic content that were a part of these tales initially before they were watered down for children's ears as well as for those of more refined society. It was this and the fact that the stories themselves are quite interesting on their own without the "so-called" erotic spin on them that I gave this book three stars instead of the two I might have given it if it would have been based on only those common classics that we grew up on.

The problem comes from the claim that these are supposed to be erotic. The author appeared to be more concerned about sounding more traditional in her storytelling and so much so that the erotica was poorly descriptive and at times concealed altogether. I felt like if one of my children picked up my kindle and read this, I probably wouldn't even care because they wouldn't know they were reading a sex scene -seriously.

Another peeve besides the above was the absurdity of the way none of the characters seemed privy to their own body's functions sexually. And the descriptions of the body parts themselves were liken to inanimate objects their owners simply had no idea what to do with until this one moment in time that the story is told.

I'm sorry, but this is far from a "romp", like the title suggests. Frankly, I'm more interested in the original versions of the stories presented here. But as a lover of erotica in all of its genres and after having read waaaay better in Nancy Medore
(and Selena Kitt, even), I just can't let this author get away with calling these stories "erotic." Sure, there are erotic themes and references, but this doesn't offer the kind of read that people want when they read these kinds of stories. Fairy tale or not - we want to be turned on, plain and simple. And this one didn't do that. End of Story.

As I've said, I didn't finish this (although I probably will because I'm almost finished). However, I've read more than half the stories in this book and the storytelling is the same. But you don't have to take my word for it. Go ahead and read it yourself if you don't mind spending the 9.99, which I definitely regret spending on this myself. But the stories themselves are interesting so it's your call.

4.0 out of 5 stars Naughty, but not erotic 28 January 2010
By hollybob - Published on Amazon.com

The author has done a fine job of rewriting classic fairy tales to include adult material, but it's not really "erotica." Erotica is intended to arouse the reader. These stories are enjoyably naughty and I was entertained (especially by Rapunzel's rap verse - I laughed out loud), but I can't say that I was aroused by any of the stories. There was still a feeling of fairy tale innocence in many of the stories (characters who were clueless as to sexual arousal, genitalia, etc.). Definitely recommended for its overall entertainment value, but no more erotic than your average romance novel at best.
2.0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected 14 August 2012
By CeleryChere - Published on Amazon.com

I searched around for a book that would be playful and tempting. This title seemed to promise both. But after reading a few stories, they were lacking in both. Yes, there are a few moments in each story that are playful. But I would not classify any of it as erotic. After reading I was always left wanting, and not what I was expecting or hoping for.

4.0 out of 5 stars admittedly un-arousing, but still an excellent read 28 December 2001
By Megan McCarthy - Published on Amazon.com
I agree with the other reviewers about this book's lack as far as its ability to 'get you off' goes. It never indulges in just straightforward sex, and in fact it almost never gets to the point of coitus at all, but once I got over my initial disappointment, I went on to thoroughly enjoy this well-written, well-researched, light-hearted, and (above all) incredibly funny book. All you really need to do to enjoy it is to read it as a spoof (maybe even as an almost-satire) and expect the explicit sexual details to amuse rather than arouse you. I could not stop laughing throughout this entire book. I think it's wonderful. It's just not what you'd expect, that's all. In the category of comedy, it gets 5 stars from me, but as erotica, I admit that it falls far short of being, well... "erotic." Thus, my final score is 4.
