As someone who's a Kinsey Scale Zero, I was surprised to find myself turned on by stories of cocks of all compositions and sizes, and after reading this book I'm actually thinking about changing how I describe my orientation from "straight" to "I like people with cocks."


also
I was also thrilled to read several stories involving fisting---it's something that isn't talked about very often, and if these stories are any indication, it turns out the intimacy is really hot!

Mixed emotions for that story, a little holiday blues feeling, mixed with the happiness of recalling the a once a year visit I'd have with a college friend going home for Christmas! Overshare?

I'm afraid i'll have to go along with popular opinion and say that the last story was my favourite but that can change depending on what mood i'm in

I also quite liked 'The Perfect Gentleman,' 'You Don't Know Jack' and 'The Hitchhiker.'

Which ones were your favourites?

I was just about to ask how each of us felt about reading ftm and mtf. Was one easier to get into than the other?

If they do, they'll probably be hidden until after the election.

Great review. Now I really want to read the book!

You talk about pronoun choices in your review. Pronouns are a big problem … one of my friends has gone through many possibilities in the past year, before settling on "he" (for now, at least) … it's always hard to figure out what pronoun fits best.

Here's another snippet from the Lambda interview; there was one kind of story Tristan did have to go hunting for.

Yeah- Tristan mentioned that at her Books Inc reading on the island of Alameda.

Yeah, props to Tristan for putting together this great anthology!

Kat, there's no such thing as oversharing here. Well, there is; I'm not going to go there, but it's a lot farther than anything we've ever done here. (The stories I could tell about a few of the writers in this book--but I won't. Even in fiction. Probably.)
