Ginger Cornish's enticing, velvety delivery sets these already sizzling stories ablaze in this diverse anthology edited by the Lammy-nominated Kathleen Warnock.
Cornish's versatile performance captures the wry humor peppered throughout Amelia Thornton's "Kitty and the Cat", about a seemingly submissive woman who turns the tables on her unsuspecting neighbor, as well the unbridled passion and ferocity of two strangers' tryst against a chain-link fence in B. D. Swain's "Anonymous".
Although rife with sexual encounters, Cornish brings to life a rich tapestry of complex, fully realized characters that add resonance to this first-rate collection of lesbian erotica.
Best Lesbian Erotica is about the trembling pleasure of anticipation as much as the moment when sex actually happens. Curated by Lammy nominee, Kathleen Warnock, Best Lesbian Erotica is as diverse as it is delectable - unlikely pairings appear as do sizzling hot one-time encounters and well-developed characters in well-developed relationships. Lesbians meet, sometimes fall in love, have a break up or two but always have lots of intensely great sex. Raw, romantic and always unforgettable, Best Lesbian Erotica will test your erotic boundaries and take you over the edge and into a world where fantasies become reality. Lesbian literary icon Jewelle Gomez of The Gilda Stories returns to the series she helped put at the forefront of erotica. Gomez, who selected the stories for the 1997 edition of Best Lesbian Erotica, has returned once again to pluck the jewels of the best lesbian erotica around.
In the words of editor Kathleen Warnock, "expect the unexpected." In "Cucumbers and Cream" by Helen Sandler, a butch finds herself hosting a burlesque show…not that she minds at all! Sometimes you just want a stranger pushing you up against a fence, as in "Anonymous" by BD Swain. And when one butch with a smartphone spots another, it might be a momentous "Morning Commute" by Penny Gyokeres.
