Sexy New Photography Book by Meg Allen

Sexy New Photography Book by Meg Allen

“I brought you a sexy surprise for Bastille Day,” said Aids-activist and writer Anne-Christine d’Adesky, as she poured champagne for our audience at the Castro bookstore The Green Arcade.

I used to blame my tendency to be drawn to women who were vaguely disinterested in me on my first love, a boy I met just before college.

I am standing on the shoreline of a lovely beach in Maui, carefully reading the signs (hoping to avoid a repeat of what was almost was my last vacation in a surfing accident).

How to Keep Sex Alive in Lesbian Relationships

Dear Dr. Glenda: My partner and I are arguing a lot about our sex life. We don’t really have one, except maybe a couple times in the past year. She thinks we should work on this, but when I talk to my friends they aren’t having much sex either. Sex has never been that big […]

Lesbian Dating: Three Ways to Have More Fun

I am driving down the freeway during my lunch hour, leg propped up against the door, window down. It’s a beautiful afternoon. I should be having a coffee and walking along the beach, I think. I sigh, glancing over at my to do list for this hour: Target, Trader Joe’s, car wash. Glancing back at […]

Lesbian Lit: Excerpt from ‘Kiss Me Again Paris’

Party at the Palais Royal It was finally late enough to get on my Vespa and drive over to the Palais Royal. Emma’s parents lived on the fifth floor in Rue de Beaujolais.

Why Conflict in a Lesbian Relationship is Good

It was running that taught me the best metaphors for hard times. Just put one foot in front of the other. Healing isn’t a steady upward trajectory. Last week, I stood in my backyard, hands on my hips, watching the steady demolition of my 80-year old garage. As the whole thing came down and eventually […]
