Unsolicited Review: Spectator Mag calls Mind Caviar "Erotic Brain Food" and then says:

"... if you shoot over to Gatto's www.MindCaviar.com you can get lost [again] in rich, substantive stories, many of which have been picked up by Cleis, Circlet, and other anthology presses."

Unsolicited Review of the Anniversary 2002 Issue from Freddy and Eddy:

"Mind Caviar is a site that stimulates the sexual through the temporal. With a focus on original writings, Mind Caviar also (unlike almost every other sex/erotica site) pays considerable attention to the OTHER senses and their relationship to sexuality, such as food, music, and art. As a passionate cook, I was quite impressed to see recipes that did, indeed, entice the senses. On another note, the Sex Advice column tackled a very difficult subject in Golden Showers (I'll let you read it yourself rather than summarize) and treated the question a lot more thoughtfully than I'd expect. Actually, I don't think I've seen the subject actually addressed before in an Internet advice column. 

If I had to define Mind Caviar in one word, it would be "original." Jamie Joy Gatto, the site's founder, seems to hit all the right notes and manages to find unique subjects and the short stories (in particular "Before He was Mine," by Isabelle Carruthers and "Tease," by Miranda Simone) kept me reading into the wee hours. Hope you will too.

Sex Noir by Jamie Joy Gatto AVN praises Jamie Joy's latest collection: "Sex Noir... delivers a sexy, yet moody slice of erotic fiction that should please fans of the genre. Gatto's tales range from sexy to harrowing, from tragic to optimistic, and from hardcore to sugary sweet-- sometimes all within the same story."
