Reviews

Just be warned that this is a book that will likely make you throw everything you think you know about sex and chuck it out the window. It's thought provoking and in some cases an emotional read and I can't recommend this book highly enough.-Clitical

I devoured Best Sex Writing of the Year from Cleis Press. I gulped down the articles in droves, rarely letting up, and as if with cheeks full of delicious thoughts and new ideas, I yelled These are the conversations we should be having. This book is a conversation-igniting megaforce to be reckoned with that features some of the best sex writers out there. -PeepsScoop

I did not find one story among the 20 that was not worth a read. Best Sex Writing 2013 is, as its name boldly states, just that: the best. --Washington Times, in praise of Best Sex Writing 2013
