An erotic collection filled with fierce, fabulous, passionate, intelligent women who seek out what they want even if they often have to go undercover
From editor Rachel Kramer Bussel: "I'm a femme who likes other femmes, dates other femmes, loves other femmes, and f***s other femmes. Femmes who date femmes occupy a unique place, half in and half out of the lesbian world; we can bond with our straight sisters over the makeup counter, ask strangers to tell us if something matches, and be taken for straight on sight. I've always been drawn to glamorous, decadent, decked-out women, curvy lovelies with seductive smiles. I think femmes have a universal allure, a siren call that can catch almost anyone off guard. I wanted to create a book filled with women like me, in some ways-women who go after fellow femmes, who have been on both ends of the femme pleasure ride-and some who are not like me, who'd surprise me, who'd show me varied, often surprising ways of being a femme who's into other femmes, because contrary to popular belief, there's more than one way to be that kind of girl.
"Mostly, I wanted to reflect the varied, rich realities of femme-on-femme desire, ones far removed from the 'girl-girl' porn images so clearly implanted in the public psyche. I wanted to see and read hot, authentic, girlie-girl sex that confounded the stereotypes of both butch/femme and femme/femme. And I wanted to do so in a way that would not detract from butches, androgynous women, bois, transmen and transwomen, and any number of queer folks who are not femme-identified, because this book is, above all, a celebration and an exploration."
Some of the stories and women you'll encounter inGlamour Girls:
a wonderfully complex sexual trio, where jealousy, lust, and history, not to mention striptease, combine in an explosive way in Jen Collins' "The G String"
a girl is inducted into her sexuality by her father's mistress in Lori Selke's "Diary of a Lost Child, Part I"
myths about bisexuality, sex work, and porn are skewered in Khadijah Caturani's "Schooled by a Straight Girl"
"Lap Dance Lust," by editor Rachel Kramer Bussel, explores the visceral erotic power of those who use their flirtation skills and their bodies to earn a living.
"Zenda," by Anna South, is a complex, sexy, and nuanced look at the power dynamics between a college professor and her student, each one trying to outguess the other and figure out their erotic quirks
With these stories plus 21 more tales of femme/femme attraction and explicit, unfettered sex, Glamour Girls is more than just a collection of truly hot erotica-it's a celebration and exploration of sameness and difference, of the fact that women who may look alike may or may not think, act, and desire alike, about looking beyond the surface, and about attractions that run deeper than lipliner.
Glamour Girls is much more than a simple girl + girl formula, or something we're programmed to do by watching Madonna kiss Britney and Christina. What makes this collection truly special is that the contributing authors respect and value femmeness in their portraits of bold femme women who desire other femmes, and explore the glorious confusion and arousal that their desires bring them. Glamour Girls is sexy and sensual while it explores issues of bisexuality, burgeoning desire, gender roles, appearance, and power-all within an erotic context. It gives voice to femme-loving femmes and acknowledges their well-deserved place within the queer community, showing that femme/femme desire is far more than a male-authored fantasy-it is an authentically lesbian experience.
