Coming to Power: Writing and Graphics on Lesbian S/M by Samois

Some of the short pieces are super hot; oower of them are so bogged down in a particular kind of political language and set of ideas about pornography and feminism that they’re more offputting than anything else. I’m sure it’ll be enjoyable for some cming but for me there was something just kind of dated and silly about it. There’s advice on how-to do some activities, discussions of the politics of SM, and also some very in your face theory about being kinky and defining relationships.
