"A good erotica anthology is like a sexy "Choose Your Own Adventure" story. It should be ripe with plots twists and hidden dangers around every corner with characters ambiguous enough for the reader slip inside their skin for a few pages. Editor Tristan Taormino does not disappoint. Stripped Down: Lesbian Sex Stories features short stories from well-known writers of lesbian erotica that will tantalize and tickle even the most stoic of readers." --Edge San Francisco
