From the Author

How to be the Perfect Lesbian Sex Consultant
Hi there-- this past year, my publishers at Cleis Press asked me what I thought about doing a 2nd edition of Lesbian Sex World, since it's still so popular as a lesbian primer on a way of life as well as a sex guide. I said I would love to do a new edition, and I had three new stories to add to it. The first new piece is about my expereince being the lesbian sex consultant for the movie BOUND with Gina Gershon and Jennifer Tilly, which was nothing less than heaven. The 2nd new chapter is a story about how I compare the Lilith Fair to your average dyke music fest--- and finally, the third new essagy is my last word on bisexuality and femme-ness. Hope you all enjoy the new stories--- this book changed my life; and from what I've heard from you over the years, the feeling was mutual! Clits Up, Susie

3.0 out of 5 stars Not a sex guide. 20 April 2003
Although this book does contain large sections on some basic lesbian sex advice, it is not really a sex guide: The main content of the book concerns lesbian culture - what lesbians do in thier spare time, where lesbians meet, etc,
It is an american book, the consequences of which made it dissapointing for me as a British reader. This is because american lesbian culure is different to British lesbian culture, so many of the jokes were lost on me, and the advice unapllicable.
Saying this, I would imagine that this book could be useful for americans, and is still good fun for lesbians anywhere.
Please note however also that the book is a second edition of the original, there is very little added, and as such it is not worth buying if you already have the first edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not only for lesbians 20 Aug 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have bought this book ages ago and not only did I find it a very interesting read, but also quite useful in terms of giving advice to people.
I have been approached by a male friend of mine whose wife never had an orgasm in her life, which must have been very frustrating, especially considering her age (43). I lent him this book.
After he had read the book, he understood far more about female sexuality and so I really think this is a great sexbook for everybody, not only for lesbians.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lesbian Sex World is a blast 26 April 1998
By A Customer - Published on
I've been a Susie Bright fan for years due to her sharply on-target essays about the culture and politics of sex. Nobody can capture how Americans feel about sex (and whether those views are justified or pretty stupid) like Susie Bright can. Susie Sexpert's Lesbian Sex World was compiled from essays written for the lesbian erotic magazine On Our Backs. In her book, she covers everything from gay pride to sex toy vandalism to the mysterious allure of straight women.
Lesbian Sex World has none of the gawkyness of a typical early effort. This can be attributed to the shortness of each essay (1-2 pages) creating a strong focus. However, Bright also has a talent for detail that any writer would envy. Remembering a past lover, she writes, "Monique was the first real sensualist I was ever intimate with. She brought a bowl of roses to her bed and told me to inhale the fragrance before I ate the [peyote] buttons. She had the Stones' 'Sticky Fingers' on her tape player, and outside there was a terrific windstorm shaking the eucalyptus grove that surrounded the shed she lived in."
Speaking of sensualists, Lesbian Sex World may appeal best to them (no surprise, considering where those essays were originally written). Still, those who consider Bright to be a writer on culture and politics may be blown away by the utter sexuality of these writings. That may be the book's best feature -- how many of Bright's current fans know that writing about sex itself is what she does best? For example, "Gay Day Mama," a tale about riding in the San Francisco Gay Day march, is a revelation about why sexual freedom is worth fighting for, namely the job of being your wild self without reservation or apology.
Bright repeatedly addresses complex, touchy subjects while avoiding the traps of titillation or academic dryness. In "How to Stuff a Wild Lesbian Bikini: A Survey of Contemporary Lesbian Fiction," she writes, "Erotica is not meant to reassure you that you are normal, or that homosexuality is a marvelous, natural thing.... Erotica is not about feeling smug; it is about feeling aroused." I'm glad that Bright is one of the best sexual politics writers today, but I wish she would start writing essays like what's found in Lesbian Sex World again. While good political/cultural writers are rare, good "sex itself" writers are almost non-existent. Lesbian Sex World is a blast to read, in both the fun and mind-opening sense.

5.0 out of 5 stars great funny read with lots of info 3 Jun 2003
By TammyJo Eckhart - Published on
This is a collection from Susie Bright's colume "Toys for Us" from "On Our Backs" over the first six years of the magazine's run. She answers a few questions, discusses lesbian issues, talks about her personal experiences, all in direct by funny language sure to burst down your resentments if you have any. If you were a reader of "On Our Backs" and remember enjoying her colume, now you can read 26 of them in this collection. If you didn't but are interested in lesbian concerns from the mid 1980s to 1990 you'll find this full of information that will surprise and perhaps sadden you.

I really enjoy Susie's frank and charismatic writing style. I don't identify as lesbian but I feel like I learned a lot about female sexuality that traditional straight sources don't cover.
