Aw, this was adorable! Susie Bright is pretty awesome, right? It was nice that this was a bunch of columns from On Our Backs in the mid and late eighties, but for the most part it was fucked up- especially considering how often people who write sex columns continue to say fucked up shit, even though it is the future. (I'm looking at you, Dan Savage.)

Feels a bit dated (columns are from the second half of the 80's). Very quick read, I finished it in about an hour, and very breezy tone. Since it is such a minor time commitment I would say it is worth reading although I doubt most people will find the information contained within revelatory.
