Skirting the Issue by Sommer Marsden, Sophia Valenti, and Alison Tyler

The schoolgirl is an iconic sex symbol.  I certainly own a plaid skirt, and bought a faux Hogwarts sexy schoolgirl costume for Halloween one year because of my own weakness for the schoolgirl look.  The problem for the author and the schoolgirl skirt fetishist is to make it sexy and “real” without sliding into the “ick” factor, which can be a delicate balancing act.  Luckily we have these three authors keeping us flushed red as the plaid of our skirts and loosening the buttons of our little white shirts with their very different takes on the subject.

I’ve Got a New Girl Now by Sommer Marsden

“Please Mr. Parker.  I’ll do anything to make it up to you.”

“I don’t think so.  Veronica, I’ve got a new girl now.”  He walks the perimeter of the room with his hands behind his back and I tap the toe of my saddle shoe to the floor.  Hardwood floors that I have scrubbed for him.  While reciting math facts!  And here he is talking about a new girl.

Mr. Parker keep tormenting Veronica by telling her about the new girl as she does everything she can to please him.  Who is this new girl?  You’ll have to wait until the end to find out.

The more of Sommer’s work that I read, the more I love her writing.  Sommer has a talent of taking the clichéd and putting a unique twist on it, making it new all over again.  This story is one more example of that at work.

A Lesson in Lust by Sophia Valenti

She and I may have both been dressed in campy schoolgirl fashion, but she was the bad girl I’d never dared to be–and just the sort of bad girl I’d always wanted

I like my men nerdy.  I like my men sweet.  I like my men quirky.  I like my women bad.  Bad girls have done it for me for ages, both in fiction and in real life.  I avoided the bad boys, but I’ve fallen prey to a bad girl or two in my time.  And I would follow this particular bad girl anywhere she told me to.  The first person narrator remains nameless, so the reader has no trouble stepping into her shoes…shoes I’ll likely step into a number of times.

Want by Alison Tyler

 Vincent had Lia over his lap, and he was punishing her sweet, sassy ass with a paddle.  I’d seen that ass swish down the hallway.  I had seen it when she’d bent over to unload the laundry.  Seen it when she went prancing out the door in a far too-short schoolgirl skirt, which I now saw was in a crumpled ball on the floor.  But this was my favorite time.  Because he was wielding that paddle with finesse, and Lia continued to cry out and kick her heels and pound her fists useless in protest.  Or mock protest.

That bitch Lia is going to get what’s coming to her.  And the narrator get to watch….for a price.  Alison’s BDSM twist to the schoolgirl skirt is hot, and gives us one of my new favorite phrases–“menage-a-fuck” when the narrator is trying to convince herself not to watch.

 

If you’ve got a weakness for schoolgirl skirts, you should pick up your copy now.  While it’s a supershort book of only three stories, I’d encourage you to read them one at a time to draw out and savour the experience.  The three stories are also such different takes on the theme that reading them together doesn’t create as satisfying an experience.  Pick the one you’re in the mood for and you might just be inspired to pull your own skirt out of your drawer or closet…or convince your lover to wear theirs.  Then proceed to the next tomorrow
