Real Live Lesbian Sext(ing the Zine)

Queer cult classic* Lesbian Sexting The Zine: Volume One, first published in 2015, carried in bookstores from Los Angeles's Skylight Books to Ashville, NC's Firestorm (basically just those two, really) to forever online is the type of work that leaves us with more questions than we have answers. Who are the mysterious definitely totally anonymous no guesses here sexters behind Lesbian Sexting the Zine? Where are they now? Do they still sext, like, 23 hours a day? Below, Autostraddle's exclusive interview, by text obviously, with the elusive, definitely anonymous pair. And then some BDSM-heavy lesbian sexts featuring spanking, name-calling, strap-on sex, biting, and orgasm control, obviously.

You Have Reached A+ Content!

98% of the content on this website is available to everybody for free, but this is one of the 1-2 posts we publish each month just for Silver and Gold A+ members. We also publish an additional 2-3 posts a month available to all A+ members (Bronze, Silver and Gold). WHAT DOES THIS MEAN? WHY ARE WE DOING THIS? Well, because...

We Need Your Help.

This might be an awkward way to ask for it, but here goes: we know you like Autostraddle, and we like you a whole lot too. Advertisers and investors, on the other hand? Well, independently-owned politically progressive LGBTQ women's media isn't exactly their thing. It's do or die for us now: either we shore up enough reader support to compensate for the slowdown in ad sales and increasing competition from corporate-owned LGBTQ media, or we shut down altogether.

That's why we've created Autostraddle Plus. It's a way for loyal readers like you to support the site for as little as $5 a month, and in return get a peek behind the curtain of Autostraddle with posts like this one, A+ swag, podcasts, Insider "newsletters," and essays/interviews from the previously-very-hidden parts of our hearts, souls and pants. Best of all, you're helping us keep free for everybody — free of cost, and also free from the inevitable compromises made by sites that cater to marketers, not readers.

A+ is a sustainable way for queer people and allies to opt into a system that financially supports other queer people. With the support of readers like you, we can pay our writers, diversify our team and continue to coordinate the worldwide meet-ups that have changed so many lives.
