Appetite Rein on the Nifty Fifties

December 26, 2014

Are you a lover of Lucy?

If so, you're on the same Bettie Page as lesbians with Appetites for love Between the Sheets.

Housed in House of Erotica's new anthology, "Flick Chicks" tells the tail - er, tale - of two film lovers (and movie buffs). The flicks the chicks create are inspired by the stag films of the fifties famous for featuring bondage, backsides, and the occasional piece of equestrian equipment.

Now quit horsing around and "Be a Gal Pal" by sharing a scoop of strawberry ice cream with a pair of Lucy and Ethel impressionists who are trying to impress each other. In this piece of "chocolit," the young fans of our favorite pioneer women play parlor games of subtext and sexual tension, each hoping the other will have the heart to have Mertzy on her. Lucy tells the truth (in that one episode, anyway). Can these gal pals do the same? Or will they Baba-lose their chance at romance?

You're welcome to crawl Between the Sheets right now, although you'll have to curb your Appetites until Valentine's Day.

What happens after Cinderella is wed and gone?

More specifically, what becomes of the mother figures in her life, namely the Wicked Stepmother and the Fairy Godmother?

I'll keep it succinct and succulent, similar to my story: they've got magic to do, that's what.

Myth and Magic: Queer Fairy Tales is edited by Radclyffe and Stacia Seaman and published by Bold Strokes Books.

May I be so bold as to suggest you take this stroke of genius to your own little corner in your own little chair and read it?

Otherwise, I'll have to put a spell on you.

And I mean that myth all due respect.
