Fucking Trans Women
This zine-style publication is an amazing resource for trans women and their sex partners, and anyone who wants to learn more about trans women's sexuality. Part practical sex guide, part advice manual, part personal narrative, this book is insightful and witty and has a visual style that recalls all your favorite black and white collaged zines from the 90's. Trans inclusive sex guides are hard to find, and trans focused guides even more so. Sometimes when there's a shortage of a particular type of resource, it's easy to settle for a mediocre choice. That's definitely not the case here. Bellwether has written a wonderfully detailed, intelligent sex guide that is strengthened by the presence of her own voice and experiences throughout.
