RIP, photographer Honey Lee Cotrell

We've lost another pioneer of lesbian erotica this week. Photographer Honey Lee Cotrell was one of the founders of On Our Backs Magazine, as well as numerous other works about queer women and sexuality. On Our Backs was my first introduction to lesbian and queer women's erotica and I always loved her photographs. This is a great loss. She was a brilliant photographer and an activist for queer, feminist and work's rights causes. Honor her memory as you can.

Rest in Power, Candida Royalle

She was one of the trailblazers in feminist porn and erotica, as well as the design and development of sex toys designed for women. For 30 years, she educated and created and helped make feminist pornography possible. If you watch, write and read it, remember her fondly.

First: Sensual Lesbian Stories of New Beginnings

Coming September 10th from Ladylit Publishing

Dive into these fifteen sizzling tales of lesbian love and romance and experience the wonder, the joy, and the magic of new beginnings.
A woman sees her lover for the first time after years of blindness. For the first time in her life, a top trusts her girlfriend enough to let her take control.  A connection forged in a bar in New Mexico encourages a breast cancer survivor to take a lover.  Stories of new love and first lesbian encounters intermingle with other emotional and physical firsts, and the excitement of new experiences: an around the world flight, the thrill of a carnival, and even the first time to see the sea.
With fantastic stories by favorite writers such as Sacchi Green, Harper Bliss, Annabeth Leong, Allison Wonderland, and Jeremy Edwards, the variety in this anthology means there is something for everyone.
