Ep. 149 - Pleasure by Eric Jerome Dickey

EWe've got Pleasure by Eric Jerome Dickey for you. We have to be honest, this re-defines the term "hate episode." This is an erotica novel from the first person perspective of a woman, written by man. You wanted #intellectualismin2020 and HERE IT IS. TW: Graphic images of slavery, sexual assault, incest, homophobia, pedophilia, sexual and domestic violence, cavalier mentions of police brutality, slut shaming, poverty shaming, sex work shaming, fat shaming, and one incident of Holocaust imagery.

Ep. 148 - Roller Girl by Vanessa North

EHey y'all! It's Roller Girl by Vanessa North! This feel-good lesbian romance between a trans athlete and a plumber/roller derby coach is exactly what we needed! Roller derby, tons of enthusiastic consent, low-stakes conflict, a whole gaggle of awesome side characters, the importance of lady friendship! This novella was a big yum, a big swoon, and a big heart soar! Bonus Content: Erin knows so much about roller derby and Melody actually sobs with joy near the end.
