Bond’s debut solo album — named for someone titillated by nature — begins with lyrics by late gay poet Essex Hemphill: “In America I place my ring on your cock where it belongs.” A few months after announcing a new name and gender identity, the former Kiki and Herb chanteuse continues a frank exploration of sexuality on this urgently intimate collection of sensually cerebral covers and original songs to be savored.
