This red-hot guide to getting it on at 30,000 feet will have readers racing to the ticket counter so they too can be Flying High. Editor Rachel Kramer Bussel presents scintillating stories of one-flight-stand seductions by strangers, frisky flight attendants, pent-up pilots, an exhibitionist screen star who's hot to trot, a female flying instructor who takes two male students under her wing, and a couple who take advantage of the latest in-flight technology. Featuring arousing new works by Alison Tyler, Thomas, S. Roche, Elizabeth Coldwell, and many more, Flying High is sure to make anyone a frequent flyer!
For one of the most well known fantasies, Rachel Kramer Bussel has dedicated a fitting tribute of smoking hot stories in Flying High. I loved this book. Becoming a member of the mile high club may seem like mere fantasy, but this book presents some real life scenarios that are not only executable, they have made me reconsider the whole fantasy.
Rachel Kramer Bussel has collected 19 of the best in-flight sex stories she could find. These stories are making me rethink my status on being a member of the mile high club. The book Flying High includes a forward from Alison Tyler and an introduction written by Rachel Kramer Bussel. The authors in this collection include: Bill Kte’pi, Zach Lindley, Desiree, Jeremy Edwards, Smmer Marsden, Matt Conklin, Vanessa Vaughn, Craig J. Sorensen, Donna George Storey, Rachel Kramer Bussel, Teresa Noelle Roberts, Stan Kent, Elizabeth Coldwell, Thomas S. Roche, Alison Tyler, Geneva King, Kristina Wright, Ryan Field, and Cheyenne Blue.
Admittedly, I have never fantasized about becoming a member of the mile high club. Have you been to the airport lately? Going through security and then waiting for the plane to do something in those uncomfortable seats. Ugh. I have never seen an airline stewardess or steward that turned me on, not even a little. Have I ever wanted to try to get it on while in the plane? Nope. I am a certifiable scaredy cat. I am terrified on planes. I can hardly think of something that makes me more frightened. I have never been able to read or watch the inflight movie on a plane. I always have to have a few drinks before boarding and then pass out while in flight. The few times I had to skip the pre-flight drinks, I sat in horror the whole time.
So naturally, I didn’t think this book would really appeal to me. I doubted anything could try to make me forget my fear of flying. I was wrong. Not only did this book make me re-imagine being on an airplane and enjoying it, I am now looking forward to the opportunity to try some of these naughty ideas out.
Oh the possibilities for scenarios! 34B by Bill Kte’pi really sets the tempo as the first story of this collection. This first person account of an anonymous rendezvous on an airplane is delicious. She doesn’t know what he looks like, is even afraid to make eye contact, but she shares an intimate flight with a complete stranger. The ending makes it even comical, but in a very sexy way.
This book is so incredibly hot. Story after story takes the reader on a journey of fantasy. Get On, Get Off by Jeremy Edwards is a story right out of a fantasy. This story is about an airline called Zirbin that actually has masturbation class, or m-class on its planes. The author does a great job of making it seem plausible and very enticing. Pick your seat mate; male, female or no preference. Then decide if you want the curtain up or down. This story is definitely titillating.
I absolutely loved Obedient by Teresa Noelle Roberts. This story follows a submissive woman taking orders from her Master. It has been a while since they could be together and she is on her way home to him. He has her do some very naughty things to herself for him in route. This story is very clever.
This book is definitely worth a read! I should have foreseen it would be brilliant coming from Rachel Kramer Bussel. There are only a few stories that are not hetero, but every story is amazing in my opinion. Rachel Kramer Bussel is famous for naughty collections and this book is no exception.
