From the publisher:
“We tend to think of the erotic as an easy, tantalizing sexual arousal. I speak of the erotic as the deepest life force, a force which moves us toward living in a fundamental way.”
O is an anthology about sensuality, masturbation, orgasms, and pleasure, with ourselves and others; offering a safe space to celebrate our bodies, lust, passion, love, fun, happiness, healing, joy, defiance, tenderness and intimacy; with poems by Tusiata Avia, Ellen Bass, Diana Bellessi, Clayre Benzadón, Liz Berry, Malika Booker, Elizabeth Bradfield, Franny Choi, Ella Duffy, Julie R.
