summary Sometimes She Lets Me Tristan Taormino à 8 review download ´ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF à Tristan Taormino Does the swagger of a sure footed butch make you swoon Do your knees go weak when you see a femme straighten her stockings A duet between two sorts of women butchfemme is a potent sexual dynamic Tristan Taormino chose her favorite butchfemme stories from the Best Lesbian Erotica series which has sold over 200000 copies in th. This anthology edited by the former and first series editor of the annual Best Lesbian Erotica anthologies from Cleis Press seems to have been largely picked from past editions On the one hand this repackaging or repacking of reprint stories looks like a ploy to milk even profit out of the popular series On the other hand seeing the stories together in a themed collection changes their effect The reader can see how many ways there are to be a butch or a femme woman and how these complementary identities work togetherIn her introduction the editor saysAs both separate distinct identities and identities in dynamic with each other butchfemme has endured throughout lesbian history in all sorts of manifestations but it was not that long ago that writers like Cherrie Moraga Joan Nestle Patrick Califia and Amber Hollibaugh were explaining and defending butchfemme to some feminists who criticized lesbians and bi women for mimicking heterosexual roles and reproducing patriarchal constructions Thank god for all the ueers who stood up to tell their stories share their truths and not be bullied into conforming to one certain modelWell yes and no As one who lived through the lesbian sex wars which Taormino places in the nineties but which I remember from the 1980s this reviewer has seen slick silly impressive and appalling behavior from femmes and butches all in the name of gender identity In some cases the charge of mimicking the worst heterosexual roles seems fair It all depends on how butch and femme are understood acted out and responded to In this book the roles or identities are often clarified by being contrasted with each other A lesbian in nondescript clothes enters a ueer bar sees someone tempting either a muscular woman posing in leather denim and barely hidden strap on or a babe in lipstick fishnets and stilettos and goes into action as the opposite type In the most endearing stories both central characters try to live up to each other s desires and often succeed In the elegantly simple Look but Don t Touch by Sparky a butch observer you admires the femme performers in a peep showFive women in red gold light are surrounded by mirrors Dancing naked with their own lush bodies with the mirrors reflecting silver and red flashes girls upon girls like the room is packed One comes over to see you dances before you She shows you her breasts their skin looks impossibly smooth and clean with golden rimmed small nipples You see the hollow of her throat her collarbone her little belly She is the loveliest being on the planetDespite the hypnotic appeal of the dancers bodies for the observer it is the mutual appreciation of the dancers for their admirer and vice versa that makes this story both sweet and sexy despite the cold glass that prevents physical contactLynne Jamneck s Voodoo and Tattoos is another story about the eroticism of watching In this story a butch bartender identifies with the tattooed butch partner of a Power Femme who invited the observer to a hotel room after hours to watch them fuck Does She Look Like a Boy by Tara Michelle Ziniuk is a postmodern double whammy of a story about two characters who both wear their gender roles as a disguiseSeveral of these stories are about sweet revenge for gender based exploitation and exclusion In Night Crawler by Kristen Porter the narrator is a femme avenger whose mission is to teach uncouth butch womanizers a lesson in manners In Homecoming ueen by Anna Watson a femme reconnects with the outsider in her high school a lonely butch who was ignored by all the popular girls including the femme who now finds her hot In a role playing scene both adult women pretend to be teenagers having secretive sex in the butch s family home as she gloats over the eager femme Who has you now In the deeply funny and moving Anonymous by Amie Evans a femme decides to pick up a bar dyke for a night of hot rough anonymous sex completely devoid of sucky feminine expectations that this hook up will turn into a Relationship Neither of the women is experienced at this kind of scene but they both like it so much that they shyly exchange names once they have recovered from gasping heart pounding orgasms They agree to meet again to act out another scene which will probably lead to another So much for anonymityRoulette by Shannon Cummings is another comic but disturbing story about a femme who uses and deceives a butch by pretending she can t possibly be aroused by anyone else I was present at a reading from Best Lesbian Erotica 2005 in San Francisco at which the author read a passage from this story She was a charismatic performer but the general mood of the audience seemed uneasy Many of those listening seemed unsure of whether the author was actually as sleazy as her narratorA few of the stories here are about femme on femme action Fee Fie Foe Femme by Elaine Miller and some are about brotherly sex between butches Butches Don t by D Alexandria In these cases the characters enjoy the thrill of doing something outside the unspoken rules of a gender based community but without breaking out of role completelyMost of these stories will look familiar to fans of the Best Lesbian Erotica series For those who haven t read the volumes in which these stories first appeared this book is a second chance to discover them

summary Sometimes She Lets Me Tristan Taormino à 8 review download ´ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF à Tristan Taormino R a chase in the woods by scent alone And the girl in a pleated skirt gets exactly what she wants from her Daddy in Peggy Munson's The Rock Wall Sometimes She Lets Me shows that it's all about attitude predicting who will wind up on top isn't easy in stories by S Bear Bergman Rosalind Christine Lloyd Samiya A Bashir and many. I think that out of this entire collection there were about three or four stories that I really enjoyed It s great that there s so much diversity in Sometimes She Lets Me but uite a few were just too implausible and too far fetched and the writing just wasn t strong enough to carry my belief Personally I think it s thrilling to read something and think to yourself Wow that really could happen rather than something that you know is largely fantasy and in my opinion if you re going for fantastic then go for fucking FANTASTIC and make it goodIndividual stories aside when I picked up this book I was expecting butchfemme erotica as in a butch and a femme or interacting erotically in some way together Some stories are solo and those I didn t mind However a handful of stories are butchbutch and femmefemme which is cool but if I pick up a book with BUTCH FEMME in the title I m expecting some butchfemme action These stories themselves were generally well written including S Bear Bergman s but I wonder if this is the appropriate collection for them In a lot of ways I think Tristan Taormino s job as the editor is akin to an art show curator creating something which is unified and cohesive but that displays uniue works each with their individual voices that highlight one another but don t compete In that respect I think Taormino could have done better but I look forward to the next one
