Author Note

The author (b. 1964) is described as lesbian, but became male. Here she identifies herself as a sadomasochist, deplores the existing “erotic totalitarianism,” and says that the stories were written for “leather dykes” (10). For part of its life, Califia edited SandMUtopian Guardian. Nos. 1-39 (1995-2000), which has no obvious utopian content.
