it was amazing

I haven't finished this yet, but I am about 3/4 of the way through. I have basically decided that I really love this anthology (barring that the last five or six are not disasters). I can't speak for Tin House; however, I don't feel like this anthology was necessarily meant to be "steamy" so I can see how someone who expected that might be disappointed. These stories are about sex or intimacy in some format though, rather than it being about describing the act of, they generally focus more on how people react to certain situations or the ideas they have about it or unique experiences. In particular, I liked Martha McPhee's story about adultery (Anthropology of Sex) and Sarah Shun Bynum's.

Amanda How do you like this so far? Sounds pretty fucking cool, but I'd worry that it's just a lame attempt at being "open-minded" which oftentimes just turns into juvenile ranting...

Jamie Felton So far, I've read the first two stories and loved them both. It's not erotica really, though it kind of comes across that way.
