Susie Bright on the Birth of "Our Our Backs" Magazine
On the occasion of the first Bulldagger Centerfold in 1984, from the debut of OOB, the first lesbian feminist sex magazine:
"Dear "On Our Backs," -- one letter-writer would say-- "I do not know how to feel about your centerfold model. What if she's not a good person? I do not know her politics. I cannot decide whether I should attempt to jill off to this picture when I do not know where she stands on ecology, race relations, veganism."
I was, like, "Well, we have our work cut out for us!"

This is the final keynote speech with Tristan Taormino, which we called, "Multi-Gen Feminist Pornographers Speak Out."
