What the Best Women’s Erotica of the Year series is all about
by Rachel Kramer Bussel

As the editor of the Best Women’s Erotica of the Year series, I’m sometimes asked, What does “women’s erotica” mean? My answer? I don’t have a tidy one, because I’ve discovered that what turns women on varies so much. This version of “women’s erotica” contains multitudes.

I want readers to be turned on, of course, by these stories, but also surprised, intrigued, curious and perhaps empowered.
