Publisher Comments:

"There was something about the way she touched me that made it clear she was touching the body I felt I had rather than the one I actually had. Oh, my god, her hands felt so good." —from "The Perfect Gentleman" by Andrea Zanin

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 erotic collection unlike any other, celebrating the pleasure, heat and diversity of transgender and genderqueer sexualities. These stories will take you from San Francisco to Israel, from heartache to lust, from ballet shoes to a bondage table, from M to F and F to M—and in between and beyond. Featuring renowned authors Kate Bornstein, Patrick Califia, S. Bear Bergman, Ivan Coyote, Julia Serano, Laura Antoniou, Helen Boyd, Rachel Kramer Bussel, Sinclair Sexsmith and more.

Synopsis:

Take Me There is a passion project for Tristan Taormino, who presents erotica by, for, and about transfolk, FTMs, MTFs, genderqueers, gender outlaws, as well as two-spirit, intersex, and gender-variant people in her newest anthology. Among the diverse array of voices in Take Me There, one important theme running throughout the stories is the power of seeing and being seen. It’s not simply about passing, but about being acknowledged and desired in a sexual context. Affirmation and want collide in Andrea Zanin’s story of a baby butch dyke and the transwoman she picks up in a small-town café. Likewise, the main character in Helen Boyd’s “All Girl Action” longs to be touched as a woman by other queer women. The characters of these stories are ready and willing to go there — and they do, over and over again.

Synopsis:

In mainstream media, representations of the erotic identities, sex lives, and fantasies of transgender and genderqueer people are often oversimplified, sensationalized, or mostly invisible. For award-winning author Tristan Taormino, is a passion project, where transpeople are the authors and central characters of an erotic book of their own. Among the diverse array of voices in the anthology, the power of seeing and being seen is a central theme. 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. "Being truly seen for who you are by a lover is where affirmation and want collide," writes Taormino.

This collection will take you from San Francisco to Israel, from heartache to lust, from stranger sex to a 10 year anniversary, from a pair of ballet shoes to a butt plug bondage table, from fumbling teenagers to leatherclad bears, from M to F and F to M-and in between and beyond. All the stories celebrate the pleasure, heat, and diversity of transgender and genderqueer sexualities.

This is a brilliant collection that has so much going for it; hot sex, a wonderful range of stories, and a respect for the bodies and identities of the characters in them that makes it even more delicious. The stories are positive, beautiful, and refreshing. I would recommend it with high praise to any genderqueer or trans* readers - not just for the power and pleasure of the sex in the book, but for the loving ways in which bodies and identities are dealt with, the ways in which a restrictive language can be loosened up, and the freeing discourse on queer desire. Taormino's introduction is also fabulously moving.

Seriously, a double thumbs-up. I can't think of another book like this one that has such an emotional impact alongside its thrilling sexual escapades.

So… I read this book right after suffering through "50 Shades of Grey" so some of my enthusiasm may be in response to that, but the stories in this anthology were amazing! I realized that trying to list out my favorites was a pointless task when the list became essentially the table of contents.

There is a staggering variety of people of all different genders doing extraordinarily erotic things to each other. Gender is not a crisis: some of the characters are nervous but there is no agonizing over coming out or horrified responses from partners. Also missing is the all-too-common fetishization of trans bodies - all you'll find here is a celebration of all bodies and the remarkable things we can do together.

This compilation does have some particularly tantalizing and unique stories. "Shoes Are Meant to Get You Somewhere" by Dean Scarborough is story of feminization filled with beautiful submissive reverence. Anyone with a religious fetish will adore "Taking the Toll" by Kiki DeLovely. "Self Reflection" by Tobi Hill Meyer gives an entirely new (and delicious) spin on "go screw yourself." If you appreciate rough, gritty, nasty sex, check out "Punching Bag" by Rachel Kramer Bussel, and I may just have to act out the scene in "From Fucktoy to Footstool" by Zev.

If you want a great change of pace from the usual erotica fare, definitely check this book out, just make sure you have lots of fresh batteries on hand!
