Hottest Queer Women's Sex Magazine

Sep 13, 2000 (Updated Sep 15, 2000)
Review by  
Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Great articles, great pictures, great fiction

Cons:Bimonthly, interior not glossy

In a nut shell, OOB is the best women's sex magazine I've ever read. First of all, the current editor Tristan Taramino is not only cute as a button, she wrote _The Ultimate Guide to Anal Sex for Women_ and helped to produce a 2 vol. video to go along with it (both of which are excellent and well worth picking up). Second, renowed porn star and feminist Nina Hartley writes a monthly column. Third, it's written by actual queer women for other queer women, unlike "lesbian" magazines written by guys for other guys who are turned on by the idea of lesbians.

The articles in OOB are amazing. They're written by a variety of people, including the usual suspects you've seen writing in feminist and lesbian sex books, and people I've never heard of before. Adventure Girl, a monthly column written by a variety of people, deals with a new sexual adventure the author has tried. Past adventures include the Dyke Uniform Corps, going to a sex party, writing a master/slave contract for a weekend, and water sports.

Then, there are the photographs. The cover is always a color glossy image, usually that is continued in an interior photo spread. The photos are always interesting and usually arousing. You probably won't like every photo, but you'll certainly like most of them. They have a mix of women of different ages, sizes and ethnicities. The majority are slim and white, but OOB is recruiting to get more women of size and/or color in their pages.

Get a subscription, it's well worth it. They're mailed in a large plain brown envelope from "Open Enterprises" and look more like junk mail than lesbian porn.

The main problem with OOB is that it's bimonthly. If the wait between issues is driving you nuts, I suggest picking up one of the Best of Lesbian Erotica books edited by OOB editor Tristan Taramino, anything written by Susie Bright, Pat Califia's classic fiction (i.e. Macho Sluts and No Mercy), and Carol Queen's non-fiction essays about sex (including Exhibitionism for the Shy and Live Nude Girl).

Quick note: OOB's tag line is "the best of lesbian sex" but they include the experiences of bisexual and trans women which is great.
