Best Lesbian Erotica of the Year, Volume 5

by Sinclair Sexsmith

Testing the boundaries of pleasure and pain . . . To be so full of longing you ache for release . . . Coming to climax without a single touch.

The fifth volume of the Best Lesbian Erotica of the Year anthology series explores and expands on the very definition of eroticism with a diverse mix of queer, non-binary, trans, and polyamorous #ownvoices that will have you quivering with delight and wondering what more you can explore—no matter how you identify. More than just steamy sex stories, this volume offers the quiet sexuality of emotional security, the overwhelming thrill of discovering something new, and a tale for every taste—from vanilla to kink, to strap-ons and sodomy.

Now more than ever, it is crucial to see unique, underrepresented viewpoints across the literary spectrum. Award-winning author and editor Sinclair Sexsmith delivers in an anthology that is both tender and tantalizing, emotional and evocative.

Best Lesbian Erotica of the Year, Vol. 5 redefines and broadens not only lesbian identity, but sex itself. The imaginative authors in this remarkable anthology explore angles of sexuality far too often ignored by mainstream sexual media, like asexuality, disability, gender fluidity, and healthy non-monogamy.

It is a gift to see a spectrum of genders and sexualities in erotica. Sexsmith puts together writers who bring trans*, nonbinary, lesbian, polyamorous, asexual, those with disabilities, and other queer marginalized folx to expose and explore their deepest and darkest desires in one safe space. Shiane D.
