Recommended to Elena by: Hanne Blank
Hanne Blank handed me this book along with Tipping the Velvet by Sarah Waters when I was 18 and all I could think when I saw the cover was, "What?" Then I thought, "This is hot as hell," and "Wow, I'm that obvious?" This was a formative title for me and I've wanted to read it again later in life to see how I felt about it, but haven't been able to secure a second copy. I will probably always like it, though. :)

Recommends it for: thrill seekers
Shelves: erotica
I can't really separate the califia erotica books in my mind, since I got them all at once and read them interchangeably.
Overall, as long as s/he is not writing weird science fiction porn, I am in to it. Some of the stories contain some pretty graphic violence, so you might want to look out for that. In general though...hott.

Recommends it for: fans of hardore SM
I used to be really into the sex-centered short stories of Pat Callifa, but I don't know if I am so much any more. They're a bit too hardcore SM for me these days.

Pat sure can write.

Warning: This book contains possibly triggering material.

not quite as good as 'macho sluts', but another great work of kinky queer erotic fiction nonetheless.
