5.0 out of 5 stars Breaking Stereotypes and Turning Us On, August 15, 2011
This review is from: Sometimes She Lets Me: Best Butch Femme Erotica (Paperback)
In the world of erotic literature it can be so difficult to tell a new story. Yet here were have a collection from Tristan Taormino where the vast majority of the 23 stories offer us a new twist or an entirely new look at the butch/femme dynamic.

This is a real dynamic, not merely a porn vision for men by men. Gender, after all, is not innately connected to our biological sex and in a world where het is the norm, it should never surprise us that lesbian might also find that "opposites" attract.

The tales are told with passion and with realism at the same time. Getting us into the characters heads even if we as the reader are not the target audience. For me, five stories were the cream of the crop in this anthology starting right off with Alison L. Smith's "Sometimes She Lets Me". Joy Parks' "Sweet Thing" and Amie M. Evans' "Anonymous" kept the insights and arousal flowing.

Slightly later pieces from Kristen Porter ("Night Crawler") and D. Alexandria ("Tag!" were brilliant. And then things slowed down for me in the collection. The other stories were good but really not as well crafted as these five though none disappointed.

This was a stand out collection for 2010 and is deserving of your consideration or your borrowing of a friend's copy.
