Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

The raw physical sweat and effort of sexual honesty Best Lesbian Erotica 1998 is the newest collection in the annual series that topped The Advocate's bestseller list in 1996 and 1997. Celebrating sexy, literate lesbian writing, Best Lesbian Erotica 1997 is selected and introduced by guest editor Jenifer Levin, author of Water Dancer and The Sea of Light.

"There's a new generation of queer women writing unabashedly about the truth, pain, and fun of the queer sexual experience-in all its variety, its surprising twists and turns, its rich psychological depth. These gals are not afraid to just go out and get it. And when opportunity rears its pretty head, they tend to ask 'Why not?!' instead of 'Why?' Ah. The calling card of youth"- Jenifer Levin

Format: Paperback
About 1 year ago I started to question my sexuality. I never kissed a boy before and I am almost 16. Whenever my friends talk about how cute that guy is, I just can't stop thinking about how cute my girlfriends are. I know now, that I don't have to be ashamed anymore. Having sex with another woman is beautiful. This book helped me get through some very hard situations. I LOVE GRRRRRLS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This book makes you think of ways to seduce a woman, making her want you as much as you want her. It will make you squirm and you will not want to stop reading it till your finish.
