I love to read. I am very eclectic in my reading but I especially enjoy erotica and erotic romance. I also like movies, live theater and concerts, hockey, and counted cross-stitch.

CLIT NOTES by Holly Hughes

Clit Notes: A Sapphic Sampler - Holly Hughes
  5 performance art pieces written and performed during the 80's and 90's when the NEA was coming under attack for giving grants for pornography. I liked how she explains the reasons why the pieces were written and gives the personal story behind each piece. Some of the pieces I liked especially Clit Notes where she tells her story and her relationship with her dad. Some of the pieces made no sense to me and I struggled through Dress Suits for Hire. I liked her prose and turn of phrase. I enjoyed 5 performance art pieces written and performed during the 80's and 90's when the NEA was coming under attack for giving grants for pornography.

This book is as relevant now as it was when it was written. I can see the groundwork being laid down then for what is happening today with bring religion into the political arena. It is interesting to see and think what is happening in the U.S. between then and now.
