In this collection:
Boyfriends masquerade as straight bros to have fun on an early internet porn site. Sex on Viagra; sex on acid. A lesbian bar sells out, turning barflies into doms for hire. In Spain, an exchange student lets two young men flip a coin to see who will have her. A stranger on a train. A collegiate lesbian ‘it’ couple. A trans woman bashes back. Post- apocalyptic punk crushes. Slut eras. An American intellectual in Austria fucks and talks attachment styles with a Viennese queer. A jaded Black queen ponders race, apps and
what the sex we have says about us. Taking us from the awkwardness of middle school to the transcendence of a sex club.
SLUTS: Anthology presents an inspiringly diverse collection of writing – fiction and non- fiction, pro and con, philosophical and compulsive – exploring the eternally controversial word. Whether an insult or badge of honor, an identity or a state of mind, SLUTS engages some of the hottest minds of the moment to riff on the subject, exploring the nature of desire and its cultural consequences, creating a collection bound to become a classic of sex writing.

DOPAMINE HONORS THE OUTLAW HERITAGE OF QUEER ARTISTS AND LOOKS TO WRITERS WHO ARE NOT COMPLACENT, COMPLICIT OR GENTRIFIED, AND WHOSE WORK CHALLENGES THE STATUS QUO THROUGH VOICE, CONTENT, OR EXISTENCE. INSPIRED BY DARING PUBLISHERS SUCH AS HIGH RISK, HANUMAN, BLACK SPARROW, GALLIMARD, OR BOOKS, THE FEMINIST PRESS, SEMIOTEXT(E), AKASHIC BOOKS AND OTHERS, DOPAMINE IS DEDICATED TO STYLISTIC STORIES OF UNVARNISHED QUEER EXISTENCE.
