On Our Backs (OOB) was a groundbreaking lesbian publication and the first women-run lesbian erotica magazine for a lesbian audience
in the United States. First published in 1984, OOB helped define the politics and look of lesbian culture throughout the 1980s and 1990s. OOB was an outspoken advocate of sex positive feminism and sex worker positive discourse. The title On Our Backs was a parody of the long-running anti-pornography radical feminist magazine off our backs.
