Thursday, February 27th
EAST BAY BOOKSELLERS is excited to welcome Sinclair Sexsmith to present from their new book, Best Lesbian Erotica of the Year, Volume 4 on Thursday, February 27tht at 7pm. They will be joined by contributors J. Mork, B.D. Swain, and Xan West.
Written by a refreshing group of individuals of various genders and sexualities, this arousing anthology explores identities and stories beyond the usual lesbian erotica. A diverse group of multi-talented authors explore a myriad of erotic delights: from fruit to silk scarves to spanking to whips, from the cozy home to the leather dungeon to the wrong side of the tracks. Award-winning editor Sinclair Sexsmith has put together a collection of varied sensual textures and flavors, but they all explore what it feels like to step fully into one’s own power, and feel deeply into one’s own body.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
J. MORK is a longtime resident of San Francisco. She has written and performed in the Bay Area focusing around issues of disability and sexuality. She has been a sex worker for eighteen years, starting with a stint in phone sex at age twenty. Normally she parcels little bits of information about what she does, so she always finds it a real pleasure to reveal all the sticky and gory details.
