Zeebra Books Quick quiz: Do you call yourself a chick? Turned on by girl-on-girl action? Know the difference between Absolut and Ketel One? If you answered yes to two out of three questions, you'll get a thrill from this book. Levin and Blitzer, two twenty-something lesbians, offer this as a guide for the newly out and the merely curious. The outline has pop, with topics like the problem of labels, the U-Haul syndrome, is-she-or-isn't-she experimentation tricky territory that's handled well , and so on. Chapters start with tips and observations and end with a takeaway thought, framing stories from the authors and those they've interviewed. Most of the interviewees are much like the authors: young, well-heeled, hard-partying femmes, long on enthusiasm but short on experience, full of up-to-the minute slang but better at describing their drinks than their lovers. Lesbians with different lifestyles don't get much play, or even respect. Advice ranges from inarguable ""it is just as important to mesh well Though they've left a lot of queer territory unexplored, Levin and Blitzer's urban trailblazing is admirable, and their book deserves a large if narrow audience.

To view it, click here. I realy wanted to like this book, but oh, how it grated on my nerves. I deplore the haughty sniff of superiority toward butch women. The authors -- the two Laurens -- appear to be preoccupied with their man-magnet looks and ultra-cool attitudes.

Same Sex in the City

The bars! The NYC fashion! They talk about "rocking mini skirts," Prada shoes and trendy haircuts. You're fashionable! You can pass for straight! How nice for you. This reader adores butch women, and the trails they've blazed politically, in literature I realy wanted to like this book, but oh, how it grated on my nerves. This reader adores butch women, and the trails they've blazed politically, in literature and in culture. The structure is a mess. The so-called guide for new lesbians heading up each chapter is as shallow as its authors.

For a book that supposes to be told from so many view points, all the voices sound the same. And the story by the lesbian who spent a year in a prolonged menage-a-trois including a perfectly proportioned man, no less reads like a PG version of the kind of overworked fantasy you find in Penthouse magazine.

If you want to learn anything about gay culture, coming out or the ongoing campaign for equal rights for GLBT people, check out classics of queer literature. If you're looking for a slightly creepy, softcore girls-gone-wild read that seems like it was written for anxious adolescent males, well, this book is for you. Nov 30, Lissa rated it did not like it Shelves: This book wasn't what I was expecting it to be.

I saw it in a bookstore, and the title caught my eye. It was definitely an impulse download. The only two things I have in common with most of the women in this book are that I am a woman attracted to women, and I am a Jewish-American lesbian.

Other than that, there are no commonalities at all. I knew I was in trouble when they started rattling off designer brands of shoes? I have no idea.

Basically, this book is all about upper class ube This book wasn't what I was expecting it to be. Basically, this book is all about upper class uber-femmes.

It's obvious that the two authors have only a limited experience with lesbians; nearly all of the stories feature Jewish-American women who live in New York City. The one South American woman whose story is featured here admits that she grew up in an exceptionally wealthy neighborhood.

Yeah, I can't relate to that at all. I also disliked the not-so-subtle digs at those who identify as "butch. I love football, ball caps, and flannel shirts hey, they're warm and comfy! But, with the exception of my first girlfriend, I am attracted to butches, and I felt like my attraction to them was being denigrated.

This book doesn't offer much for advice, either. Each chapter has a page or two of "advice," which is shallow at best, and then is followed by groupings of stories that are supposed to illustrate Let's put it this way: May 25, Tyler added it. While I would trade this book for a pretty Lawrence girl in a second, lack of the latter has made the personal accounts in this book incredibly helpful while I am figuring out something so important to me and my identity.

Same Sex in the City by Lauren Levin

Feb 05, Sarah rated it liked it Shelves: A nice book, extremely well-intentioned, with a very slight daffy undercurrent. The absurd side of the book is when they start talking about the family cruise they came out on, the heart-to-heart they had with a parent on an exotic beach, or how they "popped a Valium to calm down before approaching a hottie.

I enjoyed reading the personal recollections of girls who had to work that bit harder to be respected by their friends and family who thought they were going through a phase and the culture they entered who thought they were experimenting. Not every story is dropping in wisdom, but there's a lot of honesty here - even with the occasional shallow aside about perfume and cute little skirts. Definitely a book to enjoy if not outright treasure, and a nice one to lend to friends who are just coming out - but may not be interested in leaping headfirst into the cropped cut and plaid flannel stereotype.
