Description

A moving and often funny look at Native sexuality from some of Canada's best First Nations and Inuit writers.

A sequel to the highly successful Me Funny, Me Sexy is an anthology containing thirteen contributions from leading members of North America's First Nations writing communities. The many highlights include Lee Maracle's creation story, Salish style; Tomson Highway explaining why Cree is the sexiest of all languages; Joseph Boyden asking the eternal question, "Do Native people have less (or more) pubic hair?"; Marius P. Tungilik looking at the dark side of Inuit sex; and Marissa Crazytrain discussing her year as a stripper in Toronto, and how it shaped her life back in Saskatchewan.

Editorial Reviews

"With his second anthology, Me Sexy, Taylor goes from gags to shags, enlisting the help of authors such as Joseph Boyden, Lee Maracle, Marissa Crazytrain, and Nancy Cooper to show all the ways in which doing the deed manifests itself in native culture."

— Quill & Quire

"Me Sexy carries the wry, sardonic tone that has become his trademark along with zany one-liners that send audiences into gales of laughter...About why he writes for the theater, Taylor says, 'It's certainly not the money. It's like a first love. It's painful, annoying, costly, makes you vulnerable, but there's no art like it."

— Native Peoples Magazine

"Me Sexy offers perspectives to argue with, to laugh at, and to cry over. And in the aftermath of every essay in this keenly intelligent tome is, in one way or another, about the important of Native people claiming control of their own sexuality -- in their lives, in their stories, and in their imaginations."

— Georgia Straight

"Taking readers in a refreshing and titillating roll through the annals of Indigenous sexualities, sexual practices, and good, old fashioned true-life eroticism, Me Sexy is a welcome call to return to those spaces in our lodges, bedrooms, and backseats where communities are formed, reconciled, and birthed."

— Association for Literature, Environment, and Culture in Canada

"Me Sexy, edited by Canadian writer and humorist Drew Hayden Taylor. is a collection of essays by a range of authors, from an exotic dancer to a former deputy minister to an award-winning novelist. Their stories about sex and First Nations culture will make you laugh, cry -- and, at times, feel a bit uncomfortable."

— Best Health Magazine

"Characterized throughout by a fluid perspective on erotic identity...Me Sexy is a provocative act of native self-love, figuratively and literally. There's no painful earnestness here. Read the book not out of a sense of duty or guilt -- read it because it's funny, passionate, and wise. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you may even touch yourself."

— Quill & Quire
