Book Description

Oct. 4 2011
In mainstream media, the erotic identities, sex lives, and fantasies of transgender and genderqueer people are often oversimplified, sensationalized, or invisible. Take Me There is an erotica collection unlike any other that celebrates the pleasure, heat, and diversity of transgender and genderqueer sexualities. The power of seeing and being seen is a central theme in the anthology; it's not simply about passing or not passing (an idea often explored with transgender characters), but about being acknowledged and desired in a sexual context.

The book takes you from San Francisco to Israel, from heartache to lust, from stranger sex to a 10 year anniversary, from ballet shoes to butt plug bondage tables, from fumbling teenagers to leatherclad bears, from MTF and FTM-and in between and beyond.

Featuring renowned authors Kate Bornstein ( Gender Outlaws: The Next Generation ), Patrick Califia ( Speaking Sex to Power ), S. Bear Bergman ( Butch is a Noun ), Ivan Coyote ( Missed Her ), Julia Serrano ( Whipping Girl ), Laura Antoniou ( The Marketplace ), Helen Boyd ( My Husband Betty ), Rachel Kramer Bussel ( Gotta Have It ), Toni Amato ( Pinned Down by Pronouns ), Alicia E. Goranson ( Supervillianz ), filmmaker Tobi Hill-Meyer, musician Rahne Alexander, songwriter Shawna Virago, bloggers Andrea Zanin and Sinclair Sexsmith, and more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely amazing. Beautifully breathtaking. Compellingly creative. Deliciously diverse. Oct. 18 2011
By Sally Bend - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
On a list of my top 10 reads for the year, Tristan is looking down upon her peers from a very high perch indeed!

As she states in her introduction, this is a collection of "erotica by, for and about transfolk, FTMs, MTFs, genderqueers, gender outlaws, as well as two-spirit, intersex, and gender-variant people." Almost immediately, you notice these are stories where gender (in all its forms) is almost taken for granted, without the `surprise confession' or `shocking reveal' common to mainstream erotica/porn, and without the arbitrary focus on simply passing or being acknowledged. This is a collection where trans lovers can feel intimately and comfortably at home amidst stories of being treasured, loved, desired, and adored.

Considering the wide variety of authors, genders, and subjects explored, I'm pleased to say there's not a single story here that didn't, on some level, resonate with me. Indeed, they are all wonderful, but there were certainly some stand-outs that I must call attention to: "The Therapist and the Whore" by Giselle Renarde, "Shoes Are Meant to Get You Somewhere" by Dean Scarborough, "Taking the Toll" by Kiki DeLovely, "Dixie Belle" by Kate Bornstein, "The Visible Woman" by Rachel K. Zall, "Canadian Slim" by Shawna Virago, "Self-Reflection" by Tobi Hill-Meyer, and "Face Pack" by Penelope Mansfield.

Not only are the stories contained here erotic, imaginative, and exciting, but they are also beautifully written. As Tristan asks in her introduction, "our language is severely limited when it comes to describing the bodies of transpeople," and there is a significant challenge in writing stories that are both erotic and respectful. Fortunately, the authors here have the words to do so, and the talent to use those words well.

Take Me There indeed! I just hope, somewhere down the line, Tristan chooses to take us there again.

5.0 out of 5 stars As always, Miss Tristan delivers the heat! Oct. 14 2011

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Yet another great collection from Tristan Taormino. She is skilled at seeking out and putting together a series of stories that have their own point of view, there own sexy take on things, but that all work together to build up to a, well, climactic reading experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hot!!!! Oct. 24 2011
By AaronR - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is HOT!!! I loved reading a book of erotica about people with bodies like mine. I am a bisexual trans man. I loved Pat Califia's story about a bear & a trans man coming together and other stories, too. As a trans man, I have my own language to describe my body & I loved reading what other people call their bodies. Many of the stories are very well written & cover a broad spectrum of the trans & genderqueer people.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Good Book Jan. 19 2012
By Ainan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I don't read too much erotica I must be honest, most of it just seems too "gender-normative" for my tastes. But I do consider myself "unlabeled" I guess I would say, and this book is nice!

This book is pretty stellar, in scope, topics, and um... erotic tales. I'm not sure why I decided on 4 stars, but it just didn't seem to spark enough out of me for 5. I did like the book, and found it incredibly well written, but for me I guess I was hoping it would push the gender envelope a little more. I think what it was, was that I found some of the pieces from some authors to be exquisite, while some of the others to be merely "okay." But I guess there's something in there for everyone so that's a good thing.

I guess I was also kind of disappointed that there was alot of talk about dildos and penetration and in some (not all stories of course) the focus seemed to be on "passing" or at least semi-subscribing to gender norms in order to have hot sex. If that's you, that's awesome, but it doesn't resonate with me as much. Don't get me wrong, I'm far from a prude or sensitive about sexual writings, but I do feel like some of the stories needed a bit more to them to really push gender to the next level and make gender non-conformity a bit sexier. This is just my personal opinion. But I really did like the book, and for me it's a step in the right direction and was quite hot indeed. So I do recommend you read it : )

4.0 out of 5 stars Unique book of erotica for the gender-variant community March 24 2013
By Lisa Sinclair - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Here's a book that we need more of, something that shows that gender variant people are real human beings and have sex just like everyone else (or rather, sex that's different yet similar). More please!
