Are bodies sexy? How, and in what sorts of ways? This text investigates the production of sexual bodies and sexual practices, of sexualities which are dyke, bi-, transracial, and even hetero-. It celebrates lesbian and queer sexualities but also explores what runs underneath and within all sexualities, discovering what is fundamentally weird and strange about all bodies, all carnalities. Looking at a variety of cultural forms and texts, the contributors consider the particular charms of girls and horses, from "National Velvet" to "Marnie"; discuss figures of the lesbian body from vampires to tribades to tomboys; uncover "virtual" lesbians in the fiction of Jeanette Winterson; track desire in the music of legendary Blues singers; and investigate the ever-scrutinized and celebrated body of Elizabeth Taylor. The collection includes two pieces of fiction by Mary Fallon and Nicole Brossard.
