The Mile High Club: Plane Sex Stories

The Mile High Club: Plane Sex Stories

Edited by: Rachel Kramer Bussel

Publisher: Cleis Press

It looks too good to be true just judging the book by the cover. However, with that said, this collection of steamy short stories delivers the goods. Out of the 19 short stories, I can definitely say the vast majority of the stories are extremely well-written and should raise an eyebrow or two. But judging with the sad state of affairs with the Detroit Airport incident, I doubt any of the situations would occur given the tight restrictions including no blankets!

Rachel Kramer Bussel, the editor of this sultry collection, is an established writer/editor in erotica literature. In fact, she delivers one of the more entertaining stories in the form of “Urgent Message,” which I’ll describe later.

However, this book isn’t for the meek since there are several stories that may be too intense or out of the norm like “Bermuda Triangle” and “Bert and Betty” just to name a few.

Out of the 19 short stories, I will discuss some in more detail.

“34B” by Bill Kte’pi is well-written and the author surprisingly gives a good female perspective of anonymous airplane sex. I liked how he was able to convey how a woman would think in such a compromising situation.

“Instrument Flight Rules” by Zach Lindley tells a story of a pilot trying to rekindle his love with his ex-wife. But, he takes a detour in the form of the sultry female co-pilot Max where they lust for each other in the pilot’s cabin joining the upper echelon of the Mile High Club!

“A Brief Respite” by Desiree is about a female questioning whether she’s in the right relationship. While her flight to see his parents, she encounters a flight attendant who makes her horny. Since her boyfriend is busy listening to his iPod, she fantasizes of the straight male attendant. Things escalate when she acts on her whim by diddling herself in the bathroom!

There are other stories that are silly, but worth reading like “Get on, Get off” by Jeremy Edwards where an airline offers M(asturbation)-Class service and “Top Banana” by Craig Sorensen with the latter one being about a struggling computer salesman that gets his groove back after getting fresh with one of the female attendants who shows him who’s top banana, so to speak!

Then, we have the two gems of the anthology Donna Storey’s “Nasty Little Habit” and “Aisle Seat” by Stan Kent. The former title is about a recently promoted female excecutive who tries to break her habit of diddling herself during flight. Thankfully, she doesn’t have to break because she has someone else doing it for her. The latter story is definitely the best in the collection and almost conjures up the imagery from the front cover. It’s about a chance encounter with a sultry Italian woman that leads to a lustful mile-high session in the bathroom!

In summary, this is worth a read and it will definitely keep you wanting more. In fact, I finished this book in two days, but I could have easily finished it in one day. Granted, there are several stories that were pushing it, but the majority of stories will entertain even the prudest of prudes.

OVERALL: 4.5/5
