Sex on the odd side

Love on the Odd Side front cover. Two female bodies appear to be naked, one next to the other, in mirrored, standing poses displayed from their ankles up. The image seems to be a photograph-based collage, so parts of their bodies are displayed while others are veiled in films of paint or ink. The women's backs face the reader, and their arms are, one on their hair, the other on their hips, in a mirrored way. The background is a diffused abstraction in oranges, yellows, reds and purples that center on an image that could resemble a uterus.
Love on the Odd Side back cover. STRANGE TRIANGLE<br />
When it came to sex, Helen Ward figured anything goes. She didn’t care where she found her satisfaction – as long as she found them enough.<br />
Helen could be made happy by Lya, who had never touched a woman until Helen came along – but after that, Lya couldn’t get enough. And Helen could find fulfillment with John, who was unaware of the other lover – the lesbian in her life.<br />
Helen Ward ached for Lya as much as she hungered for John. And she was determined that marriage to John was not going to interfere with either relationship.<br />
But Lya had other ideas – for she was finding John more and more appealing . . .

NODL Evaluation Report

"This is a cheap, sensational book, dangerous because it is moderately well-written. The restless wife, from a small town, rapidly deteriorates in a New York 'bum' becoming a prostitute for lesbians. Before her downfall she has a variety of explicitly described experiences."
