Reading List

When I knew I'd be traveling internationally, I talked to the Smitten Kitten and said, "let's talk about collaborating on some travel stuff!" - there will be more on that later this week, but I knew that I would need some entertainment, especially for the hours of buses, trains, and planes involved in my journey. So, I chose some very promising books and wanted to share them with you! There will be more thorough reviews later, but I'll mention a little of why I chose each book, and I'll give some other recommendations for awesome looking books the Smitten Kitten has in stock that you might want to read during your leisure time or if you're traveling!

Come As You Are is still being read, but I already know that it's something I'm going to recommend to everyone I know. Though it is targeted specifically for women, I think everyone could benefit from it. It's going to be hard to write a review because I'm going to want to just reproduce the entire book and make people read it. It's so good. Click on the image to read about it and get your own!

I've started to read Girl Sex 101, but wanted to focus on Come As You Are, so I've resorted to just flipping through occasionally and reading a passage. This is a totally acceptable way to read this gorgeous book - look at those spreads! - but I'm also really excited to read it cover to cover. This is looking to be an amazingly inclusive book that I'd recommend any women/vulva owners/afab/trans women or the people who have sex with them to read.

This zine, you guys. I can't wait to dig into it. It's so hard to find trustworthy information on trans bodies and sexuality without having to root around the internet. This collects a lot of information - pictures, thoughts, and drawings - and it's part sex guide, part advice, and part personal narrative, with a style and feel not unlike your favorite zeroxed zines of yore. Except, thankfully, this one is much bigger and perfect bound. I think this is a must for sex educators, as well as trans women and their partners. Click the image above to get yours, or see [here].

Interested in the Kink, Leather, or BDSM communities? Already in them but wanting more info on navigating from people with years of experience? Mollena Lee Williams [Williams-Haas! She just got married - congrats, Mollena!] and Lee Harrington have just the thing for you. As someone who is adjacent and somewhat involved with these communities, I think this will be indispensable for navigating my ties to them and for giving advice to people who inevitably ask me about them.
