Tristan Taormino’s ‘When She Was Good’

When She Was GoodWhen She Was Good: Best Lesbian Erotica” is a collection of inventive and sexy stories of love and lust, curated by acclaimed author and editor Tristan Taormino.

This diverse anthology is a wildly seductive ride. The stories are written for us, by us, about us. They are hungry and they are satisfying; they are edgy and vanilla; they are tender and filthy hot. And, according to Margaret Cho, they are all-around “incredible.”

Introduced by superstar Sister Spit performer Ali Liebegott, “When She Was Good” goes beyond the ordinary, pushing boundaries in a breathtakingly bold look at lesbian desire.

“As queer people, we have already challenged one powerful norm by claiming our queerness. So when we tell stories of longing, desire, love, affection and sex, those stories are, by definition, outside of dominant mainstream culture. But the college kid, upper-crust society lady, pro-domme, bootblack boi, female cop, butch Daddy, grocery store clerk, and others who inhabit the twenty-two stories in this book go way past the point of queer lust … These writers have given us vibrant characters who defy roles and expectations and challenge traditions and norms.”
