When it was 1st published in 1988, Pat Califia's »Macho Sluts«, a collection of S/M stories set in San Francisco's dyke bathhouses, sex parties, and S/M gay bars, shocked the lesbian community and caused an upheaval in the field of queer publishing. Nobody had ever written so frankly about the kinky potential of woman-to-woman sex. If any book is responsible for the formation of the modern lesbian leather community, this one is it. Despite its graceful language, imaginative scenarios, and abundant humor, the lesbian press trashed the book, it became a focal point for infamous legal battles. But readers loved it, and to this day it remains a vital classic that still has the power to educate, radicalize, and expand our notions of the body's potential to provide us with pleasure, pain, and love.
