I’ve been reading erotica for just over 20 years. Here’s a list of the 100 best stories I’ve read in that time, starting at number 70:
#70: Dollars and Sins, by Fugue
Tags: mc, mf, md, in – mom/son, domination/submission, degradation
You may remember Fugue from the Honorable Mentions; his tale Diabolical Dr. Diggler had so much potential, but ended after only two chapters.
Not this one! This one goes for 7 glorious chapters, each as hot as the last.
The premise is simple: a son comes home from college with 13 one-dollar bills. Just normal, ordinary-looking dollar bills. Unless you look at them out of the corner of your eye, at which point they look like they’re…red? With demonic writing on them?
The strangest thing about them is that when Madolyn is offered one of them, she has to do what it says. She has to. She…she can’t stop.
You could write a pretty great story out of that by itself, but Fugue takes it in an interesting direction – after the first few chapters, Madolyn doesn’t even fight the dollars any more. Instead, she uses the sexual freedom that comes with essentially being a slave to explore her own kinks, working out what (surprisingly, even to her) turns her on.
It’s a hot tale with a lot of room for sequels, and even though it doesn’t have quite as much tension as I’d have preferred, it’s still a great read.
Best scene: Madolyn on the phone to her daughter (Rob’s sister) while he fucks her, swatting her ass. Or the scene where she wants to be forced to reveal the leash and collar she’s bought, because she can’t own those as her personal fetish – she desperately wants them to be something he’s put onto her.
Worst scene: Rob only has 13 one-dollar bills, so what happens when he’s down to 1 remaining? He…uses it to buy the rest back. Weak! If you’re going to set up limitations, it’s cheating to just wave them away. There’s also a strange interlude in the middle where we go into Rob’s head, and he seems to…genuinely be trying to help his mother unlock her sexuality? With no conflict about his incestuous desires at all?
One more: the dollar bills just came ‘from a gypsy’. Why even bother with magical artifact backstory if it’s going to be so nothing?

#69: Mom’s Kids, by APerv2
Tags: mf, in – bro/sis, mom/son
SexStories.com is a weird one. I discovered it around 2016; almost all the stories on that site are ones that I’ve never seen anywhere else. The ranking system seems to be severely weighted towards old stories, and it’s one of the most transient sites, with authors regularly disappearing and pulling their catalogues.
Of my top 100 stories, this is one of four from that site, largely because my tastes don’t entirely intersect with the SexStories.com crowd (they like the ever-popular “who cares about logic or reason, let’s just have pages of lusty sexy sex” subgenre of incest erotica).
Mom’s Kids peaks in the first chapter. It quickly starts becoming the trope I’m always complaining about: all the family members into each other for no real reason.
Well, no, that’s not fair. The story telegraphs it from the title: the kids are their Mom’s kids, and their Mom is a pervert. But until chapter 2 (which is from the Mom’s POV) it’s a delightful tale of young lust, a teenage girl trying to ‘prove’ to her brother that she’s not a kid (by dressing up sexy) and then becoming completely overcome with lust as she sucks his cock.
Best scene: The reason this story made the list at all is the scene at the end of chapter 1 – after blowing her brother, Cat calls for him to come into her room. He discovers her panties pulled to the side as she desperately rubs herself, begging him to stick his cock in her mouth so she can get off.
God damn that’s a hot scene.
If you liked this, check out: There’s another APerv2 story coming up later on the list; if you feel like archive-diving, their work is generally of this tone. This is in that specific subgenre that I love, but rarely write in: teenage siblings spontaneously attracted to each other. The closest thing from I’ve written would be my not-yet-posted-anywhere (including Patreon) collaboration with BurroGirl18, “Quarantined With My Brother”.
#68: Women in Heat, by Jafar
Tags: mc, mf, ff, in – mom/son, daddy/daughter
If there’s one theme that permeates all the smut I write + all the smut I like, it’s horny women. I love me some horny women – and (unlike the majority of my kinks) not just in fiction.
Turned-on women. Yum yum yum.
And if Women in Heat delivers one thing, it’s horny women. The story has a fun premise: human women used to enter heat (like other mammals do) until it provided an evolutionary advantage not to, thanks to a near-fatal STI that wiped out every woman except the biological anomalies who never entered heat.
But it’s still in the DNA of every woman on earth, and someone has invented pills that unlock it. A man buys some of these pills, and doses his wife, his daughter, and his son’s girlfriend. The latter two supposedly so that no one will be suspicious when his wife starts acting all horny-like, which…I mean look, it’s a pretty weak justification, but it results in some delicious scenes, so I’ll allow it.
Best scene: All the women getting naked and juicy, trying to seduce the two men. This should shock no-one.
If you liked this, check out: Despite enjoying it so much in the stories I read, I rarely write stories about unlocking a woman’s sexuality. My (only-on-Patreon-at-the-moment) story Daddy is a take on the idea, but generally speaking the premise doesn’t hold enough tension for me.
Having said that, if that’s your jam, check out Limerick‘s…entire catalogue, basically. He is the master of this subgenre.
#67: Stepford’s Wife, by Stormbringer
Tags: mc, mf, md, cheating, cheating, cheating
This story is particularly significant to me, because it’s what brought me to MCStories.com
Stormbringer only has 4 stories on the EMCSA, but way back in the early thousands, I was devouring his dozens of tales from on asstr. Stepford’s Wife was a link to the EMCSA version, and – despite not having a mind control fetish at the time – I started clicking around (mostly on Reader’s Picks) and was instantly hooked.
Twenty years later, mind control is one of the fetishes I’m best known for. Getting off to a specific fetish will do that to you: you start associating it with sex, until it becomes your fetish as well (a concept I’ve explored on more than one occasion within my stories).
None of this has anything to do with this specific story, but you can see why it holds a special place in my heart.
The tale itself is full of classic Stormbringer concepts. Young, busty wife. Old man unwillingly cuckolded. Lots of large-dicked men (including several black guys) who go at her. It’s all hot stuff; if you enjoy cheating, interracial stories, or Stormbringer’s stuff generally, you know what you’re getting here.
Best scene: Stepford’s wife (great title, btw) going over to Billy’s to have sex with him, and his housemate getting involved as well.
If you liked this, check out: This story is a great example of perhaps my favorite mind-control subgenre, commands gone wrong. (Bonus points if they’re self-hypnosis gone wrong.) Obviously, you can read any other Stormbringer story for the other elements, but if you’re looking for misinterpreted mind control leading to cheating, check out…
…oh, come *on*! How do I have not a single story that hits those themes? I guess I’d better get writing!
#66: Chemistry of a Good Idea, by Pause88
Tags: mc, mf, md, cheating
This story is great. Hot tone, fun concept (a drug that imitates the rush you get when you have a good idea, making the victim think everything she hears is a brilliant concept), hits on a few of my favourite kinks, particularly “only girl in the group becomes their sex toy.”
If it was just a single chapter, it likely would still have made it onto the list – both the (lengthy) quotes below are from the first chapter.
But Pause88 wanted to keep writing it. And each chapter gets…it’s hard to describe.
You know how the later parts of Llamas in Hats just went completely off the rails? Like, obviously FilmCow didn’t want to be making them, so he took them as an opportunity to experiment.
The longer Chemistry of a Good Idea goes, the more experimental it feels. Like Pause88 is seeing how far he can take a writing style. Head-hopping, trying to get into the mind of someone under the effects of the drug. Twisting kinks and concepts and heat and plot and characters together.
It’s a fascinating tale,
“I bet you’d really like the feeling of a man’s dick in your pussy, Joanna.” Ed again, and by implication, his dick. I knew it from the way he said it, and so did everyone else. Danny should have gotten mad, but he interpreted it to mean something other than Ed’s dick. Ed’s dick. Ed’s dick.
I looked straight back at him and said, “That would feel amazing.”
He held my gaze. “Imagine it, Joanna.”
I imagined Ed’s dick in my pussy.
Now our gazes had been locked a little too long. Danny shook me. I looked at him, and as I did, saw Danny in front of me. Ed’s dick in my pussy. I had described it as amazing, and that opened the door on a whole list of other adjectives. Ed’s dick in my pussy. Amazing, Stupendous, Spiritual… Why haven’t I done this already? Thrilling, Fantastic, Life-changing…
Wait, I never thought of Ed that way before. Ed’s dick in my pussy. I had thought Ed was kind of sleazy. But that didn’t matter. It felt inevitable. Ed’s dick in my pussy. My pussy ached for it there, like I remembered it from a past life. Ed’s dick in my pussy. I couldn’t wait.
Okay, also this one:
Ed said, “Joanna, could you possibly be even more obsessed with my dick?”
It didn’t immediately dawn on me what Ed was asking. He said it like I was already obsessed beyond measure. I imagined the most obsessed I could possibly be. When I conceived of how infatuated I could be, I realized that I felt exactly this way. This gave me a new starting off point for imagining being even more obsessed with Ed’s dick. I had the strangest feeling then. I was standing in the same place, yet suddenly all the voices in the room seemed so far away. Danny’s drama. The boys were yelling at each other now, but I simply tuned it out. I felt like I was floating, drifting off, helpless.
I anchored myself to this world by imagining Ed’s dick in my pussy, in my mouth, between my breasts, all over my skin… In my mind, I was rolling around in a tall shag carpet of Ed’s dicks, thousands of them. They were touching me everywhere.
This is what I wanted. To be completely covered, all at once, by the skin of Ed’s dick. Except I knew he had one, not thousands, and that they couldn’t be everywhere all at once. I thought, where did I want it the most? I was more sure of the answer than my own name. In my pussy.
If you liked this, check out: My (Patreon-only) story Photographs of my Best Friend’s Girl was starting to go in the “only girl in the group used by all the guys” direction (although with no mind control). Chemistry of a Good Idea also has a lot of overlap with my stories in which characters start mindlessly narrating, contradicting themselves then being overwhelmed with a new idea and going along with it. Brother Likes Boobs, Only Teasing, Spanked by my Boss, probably others as well.
#65: Character Flaw, by Orestes
Tags: mc, mf, exhibitionism, ???
This story is the inverse of the above, in a sense. It’s a collection of basically four short stories, two of which would rank way higher on this list if they were standalone tales.
But instead, it’s all mixed together in this weird tone that…make each of the individual stories less enjoyable?
Don’t get me wrong, it works. It’s a fascinating little piece, and like I said: two of the stories (the boss and the football team) are hot as hell. The way it’s told is eerily fascinating, and while I find the vagueness and lack of resolution frustrating, I can’t deny that they work for this piece.
I just wish that there was a version of this that just told those sick, hot tales by themselves.
Best scene: The night the football team loses.
If you liked this, check out: I have an unwritten story that’s been in my head for almost half a decade now, “For the Company“, which is strongly inspired by this tale. Obviously that one, uh…doesn’t exist yet, so I can’t link to it. Sorry.
But Free Use Boss is written and published, and that has some overlap as well.
#64: Summer Holidays, by Downing Street
Tags: mc, mf, md
One of the best stories from the best author in the history of Mind Control erotica. It would almost have been embarrassing if this one wasn’t on the list.
There are 6 more parts to this top 100 list, and 6-and-a-half more Downing Street stories yet to come. Place your bets now, folk.
This one is hot for…well, obviously for every reason. It’s the story of a young man turning all the women in his proximity into horny hedonists, enjoying every sexy moment of their titular (and tit-tacular) holiday.
But there are two elements that make it work so well. Firstly, much like the story it’s sequelizing (which, yes, is one of the six-and-a-half) it starts at the end, showing the erotic paradise that is the de Winter holiday house, and flashing back to all the characters slowly falling to Jimmy’s influence.
Secondly, it’s told from the point-of-view of a side character. Downing Street could’ve written this from Jimmy’s perspective, or the woman of the house. Instead – like the Sherlock Holmes books, or The Great Gatsby – he recognizes the strength of telling the whole thing from the largely-silent observer, the assistant to the mastermind behind the whole thing.
When writing in first-person peripheral, the main character doesn’t have to go through the same arc as anyone else. Amber doesn’t provide much resistance to Jimmy’s influence. Instead, she provides a conduit to the battle we see in everyone else.
And if you want some less cerebral reasons to enjoy this (incredibly-written) story, it also has a lot of big boobs in it. Also: a French maid seducing her ‘master’, then lounging about the house while the rich bitch does all the housework.
Amber gulped down her wine, all the while thinking about giving Mr. de Winter a blow job. She looked at Jimmy, her eyes unfocused. He had a cock. Just like Mr. de Winter. She was a maid. She had to satisfy him. She was breathing hard.
“Jimmy,” she said softly. She got to her feet, staggering as one shoe fell off. “Please, may I—I mean, I’ve got to… practice!” She fell heavily to her knees and lunged for his zipper.
Jimmy was laughing. “Whoops!” he said, standing up to make it easier for her. “I guess I overdid it a bit there, didn’t I? Well, go ahead, help yourself.”
If you liked this, check out: There are two more in this specific series coming up later in the list, so you can wait for them (or just go find ’em).
All of Downing Street’s works are obviously magnificent, so if you just love the tone and the style and the kinks, that’s well worth a deep dive.
#63: Amy, A Lawyer, by Greyscribbler
Tags: mc, fd, prostitution
Once upon a time, Greyscribbler used to write male/female content. For the past half-decade so, he seems to have honed in on lesbian works. His latest, Helen and the Mouse, is an incest-heavy lesbian piece, so I’m certainly not complaining (it will probably appear on the next update to this list) but I do miss his stories of women having sex with…y’know, men.
I didn’t mention it above, but Chemistry of a Good Idea also has a character who’s given a prostitution obsession. It’s not a common kink, but I’m always a fan whenever I run into it.
Much like College Undercover (the Greyscribbler story from runners-up and honorable mentions), this one plays with the idea of a double life. Unlike College Undercover, Amy’s double life doesn’t consume her. By the end, she’s a lawyer by day, and a prostitute by night, and hot damn is the entire thing sexy.
Best scene: Amy, shakingly telling a sex worker about the one-night stand she had the previous week. The sex worker, calmly explaining to her that everything she did – pick up a guy, have sex with him despite not having an emotional connection – was exactly what prostitutes do.
The only difference is, they get paid for it.
By the end of the scene, she’s seduced, agreeing to try it out. To become an escort. It’s so hecking sexy.
If you liked this, check out: College Undercover, obviously. Chemistry of a Good Idea takes it in a completely different direction, but chapter 2 has a prostitute obsession. And my upcoming story The Making of a Whore is heavily inspired by this one, as the title may suggest.
Sidenote: Greyscribbler is so, so good at naming stories. It’s a tricky skill, and I feel like he hits it out of the park every time.
#62 – Nude Models, by HappyAndre
Tags: mc, mf, md, ff, exh, in – mother/daughter
The commonality in this chunk of ten stories seems to be: tone.
The plot of Nude Models is solid – a woman is convinced to take nude photos, then when she goes back to complain, takes more. Then her mother goes to object, and is also convinced to take nude photos. Finally, they go in together, and take nude photos together.
It’s not Shakespeare, but it’s fun. After each photo session, the mind control wears off, and they’re repulsed by what they do. Then they go back in and can’t understand why it ever bothered them for a second – they love being nude models!
But what makes the tale work is the dreamlike tone it’s told in. It’s so matter-of-fact, every time they get seduced (and then unseduced) by the photographers. It’s hot and fun and I love it.
Tone is so important to an erotica tale. Sometimes (like in Character Flaw) the content can overcome the tone, but more often (like in Nude Models) the tone elevates the content. It’s something I think about a lot when writing – often finding the tone (or even POV) is the main thing that holds me back from writing a story, or inspires me to bump it higher on my to-do list.
Best scene: After their mother/daughter photography session, the two women come home and – still very much in love/lust with each other – spend a few hours in bed getting each other off.
Again, when they ‘wake up’ from the dreamlike state, their actions horrify them.
If you liked this, check out: The tale has a delightful fascination with nudity…as do I! I love nude women, and I especially love women being implanted with a nudity obsession, or simply commanded to be nude all the time.

#61 – One Thing Led To Another, by CraptainPlanet
Tags: mf, cheating
For the few years he was writing, Craptain Planet was easily my favourite erotica author. He only has 6 stories (over 4 series), but I’ve read each of them dozens of times.
I’ve always enjoyed cheating stories (Stormbringer was my first favourite erotica author) but CP’s stories absolutely awakened something in me, bumping the fetish up to my new number one. His stuff perfectly balances tension and sluttiness and female arousal and betrayal and throwing morals out the window…I love it. I love it all.
This is the lowest-ranked of his tales on the list, but considering how short (and unfinished) it is, it’s amazing how high it is.
Dave’s long-term, long-distance girlfriend is nervous about his crush moving in, and she has good reason to be. Dave and Jenny, while both agreeing that they shouldn’t do anything untoward, can’t help themselves, and start crossing lines they can’t uncross.
Again, it ends before it can really get into the meat of it, but hot damn. The two chapters that do exist are primo cheating/guilt content.
Best scene: Look, I’m a simple man. There’s a lot of hot stuff in this story, but I think the detailed descriptions of boobs take the cake for me. Jenny, according to this tale, has fantastic boobs, and I’m very happy to hear about them in detail.
Also, the final scene where they lay in bed together and masturbate alongside each other. I’m a huge fan of teasing tales, and this story delivers.
If you liked this, check out: Writing these lists really makes me want to go and write long, hot tales in a similar vein. I could happily write an epic saga of two friends who are just fooling around, really – not cheating, they’d never cheat, that wouldn’t be okay, they’re just…keeping each other company. (That’s what I’d call it, Keeping Each Other Company.)
Since I already have an infinitely-long list of tales I need to get to, I’ll instead recommend my friends-cheating collaboration with BurroGirl, Photographed by my Friend.
Up next: #60-51…
