Best of the Best Lesbian Erotica
This review is a little different from most of the others in that I actually bought this book. From a used bookstore no less. So really, no one expected me to write this review. However, after finishing all the stories in this compilation, I knew I had to write one up.
So what is this book? Well, it’s fairly self explanatory. Out of all the Best Lesbian Erotica compilations that had been published thus far, the cream of the crop was selected and republished in this newest conglomeration of—you guessed it—lesbian erotica. And unlike some other “best of the best” erotica compilations, you know you’re actually in for something worth your time because the entire Best Lesbian Erotica series up to the point of this book is edited by Tristan Taormino. Discerning taste, anyone?
The bottom-line question is this: does the book live up to its reputation not only as a “best of the best” book but also as a book edited by the famously fabulous Tristan Taormino? The bottom-line answer is this: YES. Yes, Best of the Best Lesbian Erotica absolutely lives up to its reputation. This book is chock full of over 300 pages of absolutely amazing, hot, well-written, thought-provoking lesbian-oriented literary porn. Not all the stories made me horny or got me off, but every single one of them was at the very least enjoyable, and often made me think. A lot. And not only did the stories make me think, they actually inspired me to write a few pieces of my own. That, for me, is the real deal-maker.
This book is worth the read. Hell, it’s worth buying. Whether or not you can find it buried in the one-shelf erotica section of a used bookstore. The bottom bottom line: if you get the chance to get your hands on this book, do not pass it up.
