For readers who crave stories of uninhibited, unrepentant sex between women, Lesbian Lust delivers. No fantasy is left unfulfilled: butches prowl the night, baby dykes learn important life lessons, femmes bring each other to the brink. In "The Office Grind" by R.G. Emanuelle, a stressed-out business woman loses herself and her heart in the startling green eyes of a sleek butch in a bar. C. B. Potts's "The Angel Connection" takes age and power differentials and turns them upside down in an all-girl repair shop. Compiled by Lambda Literary Award-winning editor Sacchi Green, the relentless, raw stories of Lesbian Lust are the ultimate in eroticism.

What Stephanie Thought:
I'm not lesbian, so it seemed sort of silly of me to pick up Lesbian Lust. I mean, I will read an occasional f/f or m/m story, but I'll give it to you straight (no pun intended): m/f is more of my thing. However, that doesn't mean I was disappointed or unwilling to read this book. Erotica is erotica. It's all sexy, and it's all a good read (if written well).

The stories were each carefully and passionately written; I can tell. Though there were some racy scenes that were fun to read, I don't think it was really my speed. I'm a foreplay-and-sentiment kind of gal. These stories were more like strap-on-dildo-fucking-within-five-minutes-of-meeting. I mean, who just carries a strap-on in their purse? That's what I'd like to know.

Lesbian Lust was a piercing, consuming ride, but I'm not sure if I like so much kink in my erotica. I know this book isn't targeted toward solely lesbian women in general, so I probably shouldn't be talking. If you like really deviant erotic stories, as well as (frighteningly) horny women, you will definitely enjoy, lesbian or not.

One more thing. "Reunion at St. Mary's" by Catherine Lundoff. It was simply explosive. I recommend you pick up Lesbian Lust, if only to read that story. You won't regret it.

Stephanie Loves: "They tell you that when you start writing things down, you should write about what you know and what you love. When my head was so full of stories that I had to let some loose, I started with those that were the easiest to tell.
What I do know: I know how to sing. I know how to cook. I know how the land smells after the rain that rarely falls. I know how to stop a child's tears although I've no kids on my own. I know how to gentle a skittish colt so that he follows me around like a dog. And I know Sarah." from Cheyenne Blue's A Story About Sarah.
