Sexy Saturday Read: Take Me There

Take Me There
by Tristan Taormino
Published by Cleis Press
Provided by Babeland.com for Review

From Goodreads:


Take Me There is a passion project for Tristan Taormino, who presents erotica by, for, and about transfolk, FTMs, MTFs, genderqueers, gender outlaws, as well as two-spirit, intersex, and gender-variant people in her newest anthology. Among the diverse array of voices inTake Me There, one important theme running throughout the stories is the power of seeing and being seen. It’s not simply about passing, but about being acknowledged and desired in a sexual context. Affirmation and want collide in Andrea Zanin’s story of a baby butch dyke and the transwoman she picks up in a small-town caf√©. Likewise, the main character in Helen Boyd’s “All Girl Action” longs to be touched as a woman by other queer women. The characters of these stories are ready and willing to go there — and they do, over and over again.

My Thoughts:

I have to admit that I didn't completely read the book's description before requesting it for review. I've never read trans or genderqueer erotica before so it was a very different experience for me. The writing was pretty incredible though. Even though I'm a hetero female I still enjoyed the writing and the emotion in the stories. So  I think it was well written and really covered a genre that I haven't ever really seen before. For anyone who enjoys this cross section of erotica I definitely recommend it!
