From the Inside Flap

Please, Ma'am: Erotic Stories of Male Submission is a book that I like to consider a tribute to all the male submissives out there. In my experience, men who crave a powerful woman aren't rare, but they are often hidden, wearing disguises like business suits and fancy job titles, or looking for all the world like typical macho guys when really they want to be anything but.

And while the men are the storytellers here, it's true that the women, those cruel, cold, sexy mistresses, often steal the show. In Isabelle Gray's "A Charmed Life," Andrew keeps trying to crack the brick wall that is Irina, with no luck, despite his diligent efforts. "We both know you're not going anywhere,' she said. 'Let's not play that game." She tells him this after he threatens to leave if she slaps him again. She's onto him, and they both know it, and that, more than anything, is what keeps them locked in a battle where she is sure to win, and he will smile like the loser he is in their sexy sparring.

Some of the characters here manage to top from below,getting their wives, lovers, and mistresses to give them what they secretly--and not-so-secretly--crave. Watching how they make their kinky dreams come true, seeing how they grapple with their need to relinquish control, is a joy to behold, especially when they are faced with a task that wasn't in their fantasy. These men say "please" (and "thank you") in different ways, but at their core, they share a desire to abandon the role of macho man in favor of one where the woman wears the pants--or the latest skirt--and wields the whip, literal or figurative.
In the closing story, "I'll Do It. For Her."Graydancer captures the heart of what this anthology is all about, exploring adance of not only dominance and submission but roles and expectations, in which ha man who most see as a "big bad dominant" finds himself with a woman who seesinto his masochistic soul:
She loves making me want her to hurt me more.
I crave this pain she gives me, but it's more than that¾I crave theperson she becomes. As she lifts on her elbow, over me, her heavy breastpressing against my chest, she lets out the growling laugh I love, and it trailsinto a satisfied hum as she watches me drink in the pain. 
In short, this book, like most all my erotica collections, is about fantasy fulfillment. It's about knowing what you want andseeking out a kindred soul to make it happen. It's about giving up one kind of power to gain another. Whether playing servant, student or nude model--or just being a man who desires the cruel intentions of a powerful woman--these men seek out the scenarios that give them the kind of bliss Graydancer writes about. It's the transformation, the process of going from before being dominated to after, that shines through in Please, Ma'am. Says Graydancer's narrator, "Or maybe what I crave is the person I become." Those people, those submissives who find their fantasy women, even if they look and talk and act differently than they'd imagined, are who you will find in these pages. I hope their bravery, dedication and spirit move you as much as they did me.
