The ultimate orgasm belongs to you and only you and it is your responsibility to find it, to have it, and to keep it for as long as you want to live a fully sexually satisfying life. Want to know the secret to having the ultimate orgasm? Knowing your body and being in the zone. That's it. Lots of tips and tricks and ideas follow later in the book. But first and foremost, we have to empower ourselves to pleasure. No matter how much your partner is committed to your orgasm, you are the only one who can and should be responsible for your orgasm. There's no judgment. No right or wrong way. No bad orgasms.

Me and My Boi celebrates lesbian bois, butches, and screw-the-binary free spirits; cool bois, hot bois, swaggering bois, shy bois, leather bois, flannel bois, butch daddies, and the girls (and other bois) who wouldn't have them any other way. The stories range from Sinclair Sexsmith's raw "Five Blow Jobs" through Victoria Oldham's searing "Resurrection" and old-school lesbian bar tale "Hot Pants" by Jen Cross to the aching tenderness of "Her Gardener's Boy" by D. Orchid. Twenty authors, among them Sommer Marsden, Annabeth Leong, Tamsin Flowers and Kathleen Tudor, heat up settings all the way from a Regency drawing room to modern Paris to a Brooklyn bike shop. Whatever turns you on, or cuts deep, or sparks your wildest fantasies, if these writers don't push the buttons you already have, they'll hook you up with some new ones. Gender has no boundaries, and neither does lust.
