Got a Minute? Sixty Second Erotica, edited by Alison Tyler, totally altered my perception of written porn. Got a Minute? features pieces with no build-up and no weak plots or bad dialogue--it's the literary equivalent of an extreme close-up.
Only some of the chapters are gay or lesbian (I just used "lesbian" as an adjective — deal with it), but they're all hot, and they all cut right to the chase. Each chapter is 60 seconds well-spent, and will undoubtedly heighten any sexual encounter you embark on, be it self-love centric or otherwise. In a piece entitled "Every Night," the narrator says, "If I feel the frank immediacy of her bare ass, then I know that she is longing to be rolled over...that she is counting on me to caress her until her legs spasm and kick."
In another, the femme narrator describes getting fucked by a butch librarian (as if), "She knelt on the floor in front of me, hooked her hands behind my ass, and pulled me to the edge of the couch, flipping up my skirt and glancing upward...I wrapped my legs around her head until I just couldn't think anymore."
Tyler made sure to include stories blunt and brief, just how I like it. Insert bad pun: she doesn't beat around the bush, and this anthology is sure to satisfy you all: the frustrated, the impatient, the fed-up. Simply put, Got a Minute? gives hope to the otherwise tired genre of erotica, dyke or otherwise.
