Desilicious: Sexy. Subversive. South Asian.

$21.95

Edited by The Masala Trois Collective

"Desi" is a Hindi term referring to "of one's own people". Desilicious is a wide-ranging compilation of erotic literature by writers of South Asian descent-a medley of arousing and thematically innovative fiction, poetry, and essays, spiced for mature appetites only. The flavours of these works, by both men and women, run deep, and vary from suggestive to salacious, risque to ribald.

The collection explores the relationship between sensuality and culture, and how they can both complement and conflict with each other. They challenge colonial stereotypes of South Asian sexuality, represented by sexually repressed victims of arranged marriages or hypersexed inheritors of the Kama Sutra; they also explode existing notions of cultural "norms."

Seductive and alluring, Desilicious will take you on a carnal journey of limitless possibilities.
