Deadline: 31 August 2012
A woman's virginity is the ultimate tab00 topic. In many societies, it is prized to the point of fanaticism. Such importance and value is placed on it that it sometimes takes years for a woman to overcome fears associated with losing her vir9inity. Letting someone close is difficult enough; letting them close when it's your first time can be terrifying in the same moment as it's exciting.
For The First Time, we are looking for F/F short stories that center around women losing their vir9inity to other women. As can be expected, the definition of vir9inity here can be un0rthodox, so feel free to experiment and challenge your characters' perception of the topic! Genre is also fluid here, so you can play with female characters from Science Fiction to Urban Fantasy to Historical. While a Happily Ever After isn't required—first times aren't always forever—we ask that every submission end on a positive, high note.
The virgin(s) involved in the story can be any age you like, so long as it's above the generally accepted legal age of eighteen. All genres are acceptable.
