5.0 out of 5 stars Not for the weak willed or easily icked June 10 2003
A collection of very rough and often bloody porn from Pat Califia. These aren't nice romantic tells, these stories cross gender lines, orientation boundaries, and get into SM in ways that only gay male writing had done before. If you like your sex rough yet the plots still deep and consider your constutition strong, you check out this book. I, personally, find a lot of the stories too intense but there are a few I've read over and over and I do not normal like lesbian SM porn.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting but it drones. Oct. 24 2002
This book has far too much build-up and sometimes has nothing of interest at the end of the journey. I also couldn't figure out who the sexual encounters were appealing to...except that it obviously wasn't for typical [person]... I guess maybe that's Califia's point. Anyway...prudes, beware. All in all, too much reading for too little action. And when the action arrives, it gets hum-drum from her descriptions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quite the eye/heart/mind opener! Aug. 4 2000
By A Customer
This was my BDSM "coming out" book. No, MACHO SLUTS, isn't for the faint of heart. I first read it many years ago and was both shaken and thrilled to have my ideas about what constitutes normality,pleasure,pain and love so thoroughly brought into question. It was a riveting read. I had trouble putting it down even when I was finished. To this day I will pick up my ragged copy and re-read it. Again, it's NOT for the faint of heart -- or for those who are dyed-in-the-wool vanilla. If your mind is closed and your world is small, this book will scare the s--- out of you. Personally, I loved it. It's one of my all-time favorites.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not for the timid! May 11 2000
Pat Califia's intense collection of lesbian erotica starts with a bang and does not slow down until the end of the final story. These are stories of possible realities, not fantasy or science fiction which I usually prefer and yet the characters and plots were so wonderfully interwoven with passioniate SM and sex that I found myself enjoying most of the stories. Definately a collection I return to every now and then.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the hottest book in the known universe March 12 2000
"Pat Califia's writing is unbelievably erotic, even when she simply describes someone walking across a room. Given that she describes much hotter stuff in this book than walking, it is incredible.

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic of bedtime reading Dec 8 1999
The trouble with what literary people like to call erotica and what the rest of us know as porn is that either it's terribly hifalutin and trails off into a row of dots just before it gets good, or else it's dismally badly written. The great virtue of Macho Sluts is that Pat Califia is, apart from anything else, a damn good writer who doesn't smear Vaseline on the lens, as it were. I'm not the only person to testify that you don't have to be into S&M, or a lesbian, or even a woman, to enjoy this book. (Though if you can't imagine what it might like to be one or all of the above, then you won't find it very rewarding - like the person below who claimed that it was all sex scenes. Well, duhh.) The Calyx of Isis is one of the most extraordinarily arousing things ever written; truly, the hormones have reason, of which the stated sex on your birth certificate knows nothing. I wouldn't want to advise anybody not to read this book - but please, with a title like Macho Sluts, you should at least have some idea of what you're getting into.
