Safe Words is a lyrical mini-memoir of desire. Through a series of vignettes, longtime zinester Sarah Geo recounts her sexual experiences with men, traversing the good and the bad to shine a spotlight on sexual desire in all its complexities.

Looking at systems of power in many forms—the perpetuation of sexual violence against women, the disregard of low-income students of color—LB tries to make sense of the onslaught of awful they deal with every day...[ continued ]

A new issue of Women in Sound zine is always cause for celebration. But this one is perhaps the best yet. Interviews with three of our favorites: Mirah Zeitlyn (as in, indie-pop goddess Mirah), Laetitia Tamko (of Vagabon), and legendary Prince recording engineer Susan Rogers (!?!). It's nuts.
