Sex Without Roles: Transcending Gender

by Eli Sachse

How much of your sex life is informed by gender norms that you may not even be conscious of? Eli Sachse's zine is all about learning to explore your sexuality in a healthier way, with great boundaries and consent, whether by yourself, with strangers, or with trusted others. This zine is a thoughtful friend with good advice, helpful phrases ("No, thank you," is a favorite), and a nonjudgmental perspective of having been there and done all those things. The zine is especially written for people who are questioning their gender identity or beginning to transition, but is valuable reading for anyone who wants to be a better sexual partner to themselves and others.
