On Our Backs
Entertainment for the Adventurous Lesbian
Edited by Susie Bright
Vol 1, no 4, Spring, 1985
On Our Backs: Entertainment for the Adventurous Lesbian was the first women-run erotica magazine – and the first to feature lesbian erotica for lesbians in America. Founded in San Francisco in 1984, for many it defined the look and politics of lesbian culture in the 80s and played a definitive role in the feminist sex wars of the period, taking the side of sex-positive feminisim. In fact, its very name satiritized Off Our Backs, a long-standing feminist newpaper that published the worls of many anti-pornography feminist of the time.
