With her groundbreaking works of erotica, Lonnie Barbach has given women a forum to express their most passionate and imaginative fantasies about sex and sexual encounters. These graphic stories, filled with the unexpected and the forbidden, brilliantly capture the myriad layers, colors, and visions of every woman's sexuality. A book that can be read as a starting point for shared intimacies or as a pleasure experienced in solitude, EROTIC INTERLUDES stimulates the mind as well as the body. These twenty-one stories by and about women--yound and old, married and single, heterosexual and lesbian--bring a feminine point of view to such subjects as mysterious partners, racy games, and risque encounters. But most important, EROTIC INTERLUDES is fun, celebrating a woman's sensualtiy and reaffirming her right to the positive pleasures and adventure of sex. The result is a classic work of explicit passion, ready to be thoroughly enjoyed.
