ha! spring cleaning: I found this under my bed. it was the first book I bought on lesbian sex when I began to realize that my sex drive had many different gears.

this book is comprised of articles that first appeared in On Our Backs so each piece has a different tone and approach to imparting information. some are more useful than others (as is the case with any collection of essays) and overall this is a scatterd, basic and generally fun introduction. but if you desires a thorough and comprehens

Pre-finishing-book first impression: This is kind of a joke read, and also there are some authors here that I know of from the sex worker, sex radical, and queer communities--some of whom I love and some whom I think are mediocre, but there are enough good ones that this book was enticing. Also, I'm not as entirely confident in my sexual mojo with bio assigned women as I am with other genders, so hopefully this book isn't a load of bull and can he;p

A compilation of writings from the notorious On Our Backs magazine, a cross-section of articles from their history. Highlights include: Michelle Tea's role-playing as Jesus and Mary Magdalene article, Fucking a Genderfucker, the round-table on Sex and Class, and the various articles on S/M, spanking, needle and fire-play. (Scary! But fascinating.)

Erotic and informative, I would definitely recommend this book.

It was good; it wasn't just about sex and had some other helpful pointers for women that perhaps haven't been out too long. There were some decent sex tips, and etiquette, that held my interest. A good book, but geared more towards those with less experience with women and that perhaps are just coming out, or considering coming out.

Not really my cup of tea. I'm not in the butch and femme dynamism but it has some useful information.
