The Second Coming: A Leatherdyke Reader

In Leather, Lesbian, Library by Damien Storm

By Pat Califia (Editor),‎ Robin Sweeney (Editor)

More than fifteen years have passed since the landmark book Coming to Power: Writings and Graphics on Lesbian S/M was first published. Much has changed since then: Female-on-female sadomasochism has emerged aboveground, the S/M community has become politicized, and a new generation of women has taken its place as the standard-bearer of leatherdyke-dom. These women remain on the radical cutting edge of raw lesbian sexuality. Here are their stories: wet, sizzling with both power and submission, and ultimately stimulating, entertaining, and even informative.

A passionate and articulate collection of short fiction, poems, essays, photographs, and drawings from over fifty writers and artists, The Second Coming crackles with the intensity and authority of an expertly used cat-o’-nine-tales. Sometimes dangerous, often erotic, always eye-opening, The Second Coming will grab you by the throat and won’t let go.
