a place for zinesters - writers and readers
I manage a feminist erotic boutique/sex-toy store/sexuality resource center in Milwaukee, WI called the Tool Shed.
We've been stocking zines for years, but as of recent I have made it a point to access as many good resources for sex positivity, sexual health, feminine health, anti-rape culture, pro-sex work, trans-sexuality/sexual identity/etc. as possible.
Does anyone have suggestions for good zines we could add to the selection, or does anyone write zines that fall into these categories that they would like to have sold at the shop?
Obviously being women-owned and feminist identified, the zines we carry have to fall loosely into those guidelines.
Thank you for the help!
Here are some zines I like on those topics:
13 Encounters -- About being a sex worker.
Virgin #1 & #2 -- About virginity as an experience and concept
Femme a Barbe #1 & #2 -- About hairy ladies and more
I carry a couple of these in my zine distro, the alchemist's closet, and what I don't carry I may be able to hook you up with the publisher. In fact, depending on the quantities that you want, I might just put you directly in touch with them.
For an even better selection, visit my friend Sonia at Mimi Reproductive Health Zine Distro.
You could carry OP - Original Plumbing (and their spin off zine). I think you can still get back issues of Spread through AK as well.
Hoax is a really good feminist specific zine, as is The F-Bomb. There are also a lot of really amazing resource zines that you can get from Cindy Crabb's distro (at dorisdorisdoris.com)
