In Best Lesbian Erotica 2012, women are looking for a little bit of everything: love, lust, someone they can trust. In the bath, at the "toy" store, or in the kitchen, they're ready to take a chance that could lead to the experience of a lifetime. This year's guest judge is the Sugarbutch herself: Sinclair Sexsmith, poet, performer, impresario. Mr. Sexsmith has selected work from an international field of authors, from top names in erotic fiction, to outstanding newcomers. DeJay's "Never Too Old" proves that an old(ish) butch can learn new tricks, even if it means showing her boxers to an impossibly young salesgirl. Last year's judge, Lea DeLaria, slips between the covers of this year's edition with her story about love... or lust... in an elevator. In "Skindeep," Anna Watson tells the story of a femme who gets to the bottom of her lover's disappearing acts.
Best Lesbian Erotica 2012 is fully loaded, literary and lustful. Curated by Lammy Award-nominated editor Kathleen Warnock, this volume is long on variety and even longer on beautifully developed characters who are as interesting as they are interested in getting girls.
