Please, Ma'am: Erotic Stories of Male Submission Kindle Edition
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.
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.
She loves making me want her to hurt me more.
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.

Women Who Rule
"I crave the pain she gives me, but it's more than that... I crave the person she becomes."
-- from "I'll Do It. For Her."
Go ahead, say the words out loud: "Please, Ma'am." If these words make you long for a woman to grab you by the scruff of your neck or control you with one fierce, all-knowing look, then this is the book for you. Whether playing servant, student, or nude model, the submissive men in Please, Ma'am revel in the attention of stern mistresses who know exactly what punishments they need. With stories by Michael Hemmingson, D.L. King, Graydancer, and many more, bestselling erotica editor Rachel Kramer Bussel has gathered together today's best erotic tales of men who crave the cruel intentions of a powerful woman.
What Stephanie Thought: Previously, female dominance was portrayed physically -- with the woman literally being on top (remember my review?). Please Ma'am is just as fierce of a ride, but it covers the more psychological and emotional aspects of the divine mistress.
You wouldn't guess that in dominance, there would be tenderness. Especially in sadism and masochism; tenderness is the last thing you'd expect. But it's all a mind's game, you see. Some people see the practice of dominance and submission as unequal power play and gender condescension. Taking a closer look, it's not like that at all. The reason a woman and a man can endure such debauchery is because in them, is the knowledge that only the strongest can put up with the humiliation. Only the strongest can stand to be beaten and tied up, but still have the dignity to be considered an equal.
Fortunately, there are no whips nor chains in this book; the whipping and blood-drawing of BDSM stories typically makes me queasy. Most of the anthology deals with the type of admiration a submissive male has for his dominant female partner, and the compassion a dominant woman secretly, desirously, has for her surrendering man.
There are many scenes that bring tears to my eyes. It's sublime how much love and passion emerges from both the dominant and submissive parties. It's also perplexing how big of sacrifices lovers are willing to take for each other, to please each other, and that, for me, defines for me what love means. It has nothing to do with physique and societal acceptance; love is a burning connection that has no boundaries, and the controlling hand of Please, Ma'am is what makes it all the more profound.
Stephanie Loves: "I take the pain for her -- no matter how much, how hard -- but I'm not a young man, and sometimes in the face of it my spirit is thrilling but my flesh is meek." -- from Graydancer's "I'll Do It. For Her.", probably one of the most emotionally touching stories I've read, being erotica at that.
Radical Rating: 8 hearts- Would recommend to lots of really good friends.
could cook a meal by it. Roberts' also excels at characterization and really gets into the mind of her male protagonist, while illustrating how deliciously exciting it is to suffer at the hands of a woman. It is a story that is all about the extreme pleasure of delayed gratification.
I also liked Charlotte Stein's "It's Not Me, It's You" about a man who has a secret office admirer. It's the kind of story that builds up in intensity to a rousing, shall we say, climax.
In Michael Hemmingson's "Paypig," we learn about the surprising practice that is money slavery (where a guy gets off on having women take money from him). I didn't even know this practice existed until I read this book, and I consider myself pretty worldly. It's funny how a practice that can label a girl a golddigger can also be exciting to other men.
Finally Giselle Renarde's "Dressing for Dinner" appealed to me because I am queer, and even though this is a heterosexual erotic story it had enough gender play in it to keep me satisfied: It's all about a guy dressing like a woman to please his butch girlfriend.
Overall, a solid collection that'll have you begging for more.
