“Tobi Hill-Meyer takes all the healthful sexuality, celebrated individualism, and bodily familiarity that I love about queer porn and presents it in thirty conscientiously curated stories. She’s touched a nerve—and it feels good!”

"Nerve Endings is trans erotica in the truest sense of the word: it’s sexually charged fiction that trans people can both pleasure themselves to, and think about late at night afterward. . . . Trans readers, this one is a must-grab, no matter what."
—Bitch Media

A trans woman watches her sleeping lover and contemplates the moment of his departure. A genderqueer sissy fantasizes alone about connection in their hotel room. A trans woman adjunct professor and sex worker is hired for a sex party held by her college’s philosophy department. A trans boy has a Craigslist hookup with a queen embarked on detransition. A bodiless AI announces its gender, takes a lover, and works to revolutionize the world.

Presented here are thirty stories—edited and with an introduction by Tobi Hill-Meyer—that offer revolutionary erotic fantasies by trans people, about trans people, and for trans people at the crossroads of history, biology, anxiety, and love.

TOBI HILL-MEYER is a multiracial trans woman passionate about creating the stories we need to hear. A winner of multiple Feminist Porn Awards, including an Emerging Filmmaker of the Year award for Doing It Ourselves: The Trans Women Porn Project, she's also been published in Girl Sex 101, Trans Bodies, Trans Selves, and Anal Sex Basics.

“A smart, sexy, and diverse collection of stories exploring transgender sexualities from a first-person perspective.”
—Julia Serano, author of Whipping Girl

“Nerve Endings truly captures the politics, the feelings, and reality of being a sexual being as a trans person. In a world where trans narratives are focused around cis perspectives, Tobi Hill-Meyer shows that the best people to write about trans people's sex lives are trans people themselves. This book is for us.”
—Chelsea Poe
