"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."

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.”

Me Sexy should be congratulated on a job well done. …The Native authors are commended storytellers, historians and scholars. But their perspectives on sexuality are authentic and relatable. And in that, Me Sexy is a real pleasure.”

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.”

April 2008

“…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.”

“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.”
