Format: Paperback
Sure, it's a groundbreaking anthology. But better than that, it's an excellent anthology of erotic stories. Gender variety has been discussed in a variety of scholarly articles and books, but the pleasures and passions that can be expressed by the broad range of gender identity and sexual orientation is well and truly described through the tales in this anthology. They are from a variety of perspectives, and really get the reader going with hot, explicit descriptions of sex between FTMs and their lovers; MTFs and their lovers, and the folks who might or might not describe themselves as fully transitioned. If you're the type to buy "groundbreaking books" then buy it. But really: buy it because it's hot sex.

I came to this book with few expectations, partly because it is the first of its kind. What transgendered erotica exists is either somewhat rare and scattered around or exploitative and not very believable to those who actually are transgendered or know those who are. After reading the anthology, I realize that I could have come to it with many expectations and it still would have pleasantly surprised me.
The twenty-three stories in this collection are as diverse as transpeople themselves. We see all varieties of trangender manifestations from the real to the surreal. I was most pleased to see an equal distribution of female-to-male and male-to-female as well as several characters who refused to claim a specific gender, choosing both or neither. The stories were equally diverse: hardboiled detective fiction, science fiction, fantasy, historical romance, comedy, literature.
One initial complaint I had was that the typeface is small, making each page dense with text. I was afraid it would make the stories difficult to read but I found that wasn't the case at all. After comparing the book to mainstream fiction, I see that the typeface and spacing is normal and I was judging it by other erotic fiction which tends to be written in a larger face or with more spacing between lines. This book needs every piece of real estate on the page it can get to fit all the stories into just 270 pages! This book offers a high story-per-dollar ratio.
And, of course, the true test of erotica is the excitement factor. Now what excites me may or may not excite you - erotic tastes can vary greatly. But I found the collection to be very hot and each story, even ones with scenes or characters I wouldn't have expected to be turned on by, left me gasping for air at some point in the telling.

This book would have been worth reading just for the editorial comments at the beginning and introducing each story, and the stories themselves make good use of the tension and complexity inherent in the theme. There's plenty of sex, from raunchy to tender and back again; there's also heart and soul, especially in the first and last stories, by Hanne Blank and Stacey Montgomery.

This is a great, hot... read. It's even better because the stories truly read from the perspective of transfolks or folks who find gender blurring to be exciting. I was originally a little leery that the collection would fall into pangs of "and then s/he found out what was really between my legs and left me" sob stories, but the editors succeeded in bringing us stories that are [exciting] and intriguing, leaving tragic for some other time. The book is also nicely balanced by perspectives: several MTF, several FTM, and also balanced in stories from the perspective of the trans person and the perspective of a non-transexual partner. Stand out for me was Charles Anders "The Gay Science," Matthew Kailey "Teenie Weenies, Inc." and R. Gay's "Small Considerations" Okay, I have a piece in the book, too -- and I'm delighted to be in the company of such great writing.
