Hey, I'm here too! Lol. I usually come and read, but I've not gotten in the club yet so I usually just read what you all have to say. Don't stop though because I really find these discussions super interesting!

I'm glad that came across. Transgender people are people, with just as much tenderness, loneliness, longing for acceptance--and possibly even more transgressiveness, due to circumstances--as any of us.
I was thinking the exact same thing.

This was actually my first time reading trans and genderqueer erotica. Anyone else a first timer too?

I also felt like this book opened me up to a lot of things I had just never thought of before.

Hi all! I am hoping you can help me out. I never seem to get book assignments. The email I have never replies, am I emailing the right person? I would LOVE to get in on these discussions and read some new books, but it never seems to work out for me. Thanks!

A lot of stories I sort of zipped through, but I went back to re-read a few of them. I think that's the best part about these anthologies, you can pick one up for a few short stories or allow yourself to get sucked in. And you can pick up and leave off where ever you may be.

No trouble except slow typing fingers. I hope Brenda can stay with us!

I only read the excerpt. It was intriguing(sp) to say the least.

I'm not having any problems. She could try cleaning her cache, or another browser. We would hate for her to not be able to enjoy the conversation!

Me! I was too intrigued by the subject matter though, I wanted to see it being pulled off and it was pulled of very well.

I'd really like to read this book. It was really hard to choose this month, with books from both Violet Blue and Tristan Taormino. Completely unfair to have both in the same month!

I ended up choosing Violet Blue's book, and loved it (review should be up soon) but I almost wish I'd chosen this book instead, as it's more different from other books I own.

i have a couple of trans friends (both trans men) so I've started to be able to identify with the trans community more than in the past.

I guess I never really thought about what sex for a male in a female body would be like and how they see their anatomy differently, like their clit is their cock, which makes total sense.

Maybe we should send him a review copy.
Great idea! We'll get right on that!
