Difficult to rate. About one third of the stories were absolutely amazing, clearly written by trans authors, and quite fun to read (those would get five stars).

Another third was pretty clearly written from cis authors, and even used some horrible trans and even tranny-chaser cliches. Including a whole story about "I can't figure out that person's gender," a few where narrators/characters get pronouns wrong and say transphobic things about the trans characters, and one narrator/character who tel
This anthology is a mixed bag in terms of quality and knowledge of trans issues. A few stories were AWESOME, like Raven Kaldera's "Defying Normal", R. Gay's "Small Considerations" and Cait's "Rebel Without a Cock", and made me feel really good about my body. I also liked "Holes" by Patrick Califia, "Shoes" by Shaun Levin and "Overboard" by Kay Bayley. It isn't often that I read stories by people with bodies like mine and the people who love them (in non-creepy ways).

I read what I could on Google Books. I had been a fan of Annie Sprinkle, thinking that she was progressive, and an ally and all that. I read her essay in here and it made me nauseous. The way she fetishized her FtM lover was horrible, flipping pronouns left and right, and she couldn't even get his name right. Saying he was really a woman deep down was disgusting.

Don't bother reading this book.
really. i need to give up on erotica. the only things in this book worth mentioning are of course the pat califia story and one other daddy/boy one that me n warren read out loud to eachother more than once minus the happy ever afer bullshit at the end...
Gets a little much by about the 20th story but this book is gloriously kinky without a hangup in sight. There's a lot to be learnt about gender and human nature in this collection. My favourite line: "I want to talk about the smell of mancunt."

A couple of hot moments...but quite uneven. And while the fact that this book was published is super-cool and trans-centric and all, some of the tropes in here are disrespectful and deepen the trans-as-exotic-other thing. Still worth checking into.
