Steamy bathhouse trysts and other tales of public eroticism is what Cruising is all about. As Shane Allison says, "This is the anthology I have dreamed of doing for years. There’s nothing that gets the adrenaline flowing and the muscle throbbing like public sex." Filled with hot plots and even hotter characters, Cruising doesn't shy away from new erotic territory and includes several true confessions including those of the editor himself. As with all of Allison's sexy compilations, creativity and diversity of story lines are key along with the fun factor that is the hallmark if Allison's anthologies. "One Hot Baby" by Daniel Curzonperson is a wryly sweet short about an aging straight guy who stops to pee in a park and gets an unexpected blow job, which lifts his spirits.

A fierce black queen enjoys some of "New York’s Phynest" in an "arresting" erotic encounter with a hot Domincan cop in Donald Peebles Jr.'s surprise-filled story while the narrator of Rob Rosen's "Small Town Blues" gets horny in the sticks, hits on a young Indian immigrant clerk in the jiffy mart and discovers that the hicks are up for group action anytime and anywhere. Cruising moves at the highest speed and is filled with kink, sex toys, exotic locations, wild scenarios and plenty of sexual intensity.

Model Men: Gay Erotic Stories by Neil Plakcy (Editor)Model Men: Gay Erotic Stories by Neil Plakcy (Editor)
Cleis Press, November 2011; ISBN-10: 1573447269

Who hasn’t experienced a pang of lust or longing at a photo of a male model? Whether a hundred times life size on a billboard or romping through the pages of a glossy magazine in his Calvins, Tommys or Ralphs, the male model is the gold standard for masculine beauty. The characters in these stories run the gamut, from the billboard-gracing Aiden in Cynthia Hamilton’s “Big Picture,” to life models in drawing classes, to runway models, to ordinary guys immortalized in a catalog shoot in T. Hitman’s “When Gary Met Larry.” They hook up with artists, photographers, roommates and lovers, in locations from New York to Miami to a beach in Australia, and many places in between.

One thing all the male models here have in common is sex appeal and a yen for man-on-man action. These aren’t the kind of guys who say, “look but don’t touch” — they want to be touched, and in all the right places! The authors here, some of the best writing in gay erotica today, have taken hold of the idea of the male model and run with it. Here’s hoping you enjoy reading these as much as Neil Plakcy enjoyed working with the authors and assembling this collection.

Teen twinks, fresh-faced twenty-somethings, and the ravishing runway rogues in Model Men make for a tribute to the glory of gorgeous gay men. These erotic stories explore the undeniable attraction to classic good looks, charisma, and glamour. Neil Plakcy has gathered sensational stories of sizzling porn bodies, sexy boys next door, tantalizing tricks, and sublime Mr. Right Nows. Intertwining favorite fantasies and gay lust, this collection is guaranteed to sing a siren song to those embodiments of perfection who walk among us. More then just pretty faces and heavenly bodies, the men in this volume give as good as they get.

Best friends and sometimes lovers Edward “Mitch” Mitchell and Harry "Boy" Morgan have been in terrible jams before—their adventures of murder, mystery, and unstoppable sex have made The Back Passage and The Secret Tunnel bestellers in the US and UK. In A Sticky End, Mitch must face the possibility that Boy is involved in the chain of events that led to the suicide of his own colleague and secret paramour, Frank Bartlett.

To absolve Boy, Mitch races around London finding clues while bedding the many men eager to lend a hand—or more. As Mitch says himself, "Holmes has his fiddle, Poirot has his liqueurs—I have cock. We all have our methods." The policemen, working class gigolos, steam room bathers, embezzlers and blackmailers that Mitch comes across create a tasty mystery and satisfying erotic romp.

Gay EroticaThe Low Road by James Lear
Cleis Press (September 1, 2009); ISBN-10: 1573443646

Robert Louis Stevenson's Kidnapped has long been considered a masterpiece of high adventure. In The Low Road, James Lear reinvents this classic as a satirical, queer, coming-of-age story. In 1705 Scotland, young Charles Gordon reaches adulthood ignorant of his family's heroic past in the Jacobite Rebellion.

He sets out to discover the truth about his father, but instead is kidnapped by mercenaries and sold into slavery as the plaything of a group of corrupt military officials. But Charlie’s talents, in and out of bed, win him powerful friends as well as dangerous foes. The false priest, Lebecque, violent Captain Robert, depraved General Wilmott — all contribute to Charlie’s "education." Eventually leading a makeshift army of sex-crazed layabouts, Charlie faces the might of the English forces.

Will he triumph, or is it better to retreat to the safety of his sybaritic lifestyle? James Lear expertly interweaves spies and counterspies, scheming servants and sadistic captains, tavern trysts and prison orgies, into this delightfully erotic work that can take its place alongside his acclaimed novels The Back Passage and Hot Valley.

gay romanceGot 'Til It's Gone by Larry Duplechan
Arsenal Pulp Press (October 1, 2008); ISBN-10: 1551522446

As funny, warm, and sexy as its protagonist, Got 'til it's Gone is the first novel by Larry Duplechan in fifteen years, and the fourth to feature his alter-ego Johnnie Ray Rousseau, a gay black man of Louisiana Creole stock. When we first met Johnnie Ray in the 1986 novel Blackbird―the first gay black coming-out novel ever published―he was a gay teenager in love with the star of a high school play; now he's forty-eight, still handsome and gym-built but admittedly vain and looking down the short road to fifty with some chagrin.

In the midst of a midlife crisis, he falls for a much younger man with some serious Daddy issues; throughout it all, Johnnie Ray tries to look at love (and his life) from both sides now (to borrow a phrase from his idol, Joni Mitchell). Got 'til it's Gone is a queer romantic comedy for the twenty-first century.

"Duplechan balances steamy sex scenes with family tragedy, relationship drama and a protagonist whose self-effacing inner thoughts are laugh-out-loud funny. Complete with natural dialogue, warm relationships and impeccable comic timing, Got 'til It's Gone is the work of a genuinely gifted storyteller." —Xtra! West

Author Larry Duplechan was honoured in New York at the 2009 LAMBDA Literary Awards. Larry's novel Got 'til it's Gone took the prize for Best Gay Romance. Congratulations, Larry!

Cleis Press, March 2010; ISBN-10: 1573443964

A long, hard ride from start to finish, Biker Boys features easy riders, stuntmen studs, and men who aren't just wearing chaps because they look good. The term “biker” describes a specific archetype in our culture: “real” men — rebels, outlaws, and sometimes criminals.

Shane Allison's "Biker Dude" thrills with the tale of a hungry young man on the prowl who meets the leather daddy of his dreams. A hot new neighbor gets taken for a spin in T. Hitman's "Ziggy." During a rough and tumble three-way at a bike rally, a first-timer learns the ropes in "Sturgis Bang," by Logan Zachary. These sensational stories by the masters of the genre are filled with sex, speed, danger, and lived-in leather.

Filled with action and suspense, hunky blackjack dealers, divine drag queens, strange sex, and sex in strange places, plus a Federal agent or two, Divas Las Vegas puts the sin in Sin City. A fun, new take on the murder mystery genre, Rob Rosen's Divas Las Vegas is a hilarious, touching, and compulsively readable page turner!

gay eroticaI Like It Like That: True Stories of Gay Male Desire by Lawrence Schimel & Richard Labonte (Editors)
Arsenal Pulp Press (October 1, 2009); ISBN-10: 1551522594

From the editors of the Lambda Award-winning First Person Queer come these intelligent, sexy, true-life tales of gay men's desire. The stories push at the parameters of queer erotic life, featuring contributors both novice and well-known; subject matter ranges from single, significant encounters to the ephemera of emotional desires that never lead to physical pleasure. Throughout, the book deals with the essential erotics of queer male life, to be used as a launching point for exploring the queer male condition: essays that delve into the diverse manifestations of desire between and among men.

I Like It Like That features smart, savvy writing about desire and sex. Unlike mainstream porn imagery that by default dominates our cultural (and therefore personal) references, contributors reach into the far reaches of memory to tell true tales about personal erotic space.

Hot but smart, passionate yet reflective, the collection presents work by both new and seasoned writers, delving deep into their erotic memories to tell true stories of sex and desire. —Xtra!

gay eroticaBoy Crazy: Coming Out Erotica by Richard Labonte (Editor)
Cleis Press (June 1, 2009); ISBN-10: 1573443514

An explicit collection of young adult erotica, Boy Crazy explores in heady detail the “first time:” the first time feeling lustful toward another boy, the first time falling into bed with a peer, the first time discovering love with another young man. This youthful collection relishes the thrill of being crazy for a certain boy, for a moment or for a lifetime. In Jere M. Fishback’s “A Beautiful Motorcycle,” a young man shares a hotel room with his sister’s boyfriend and experiences a whole new kind of room service. Guitar lessons give way to instructions of a more amorous variety in L.A. Field’s “Summertime Blues.” Mesmerized by two hot young bikers, Warden finds himself taking a ride on the wild side in Jeffrey Rounds’ “This Is Not Your Country.”

These and other stories of sexual awakening vividly evoke the trembling, heart-pounding, sweaty-palmed excitement of the first time.

gay buttsButt Book by Wolfgang Tillmans, Et al
Taschen; illustrated edition (November 30, 2006); ISBN-10: 3822830216

Putting the sex back into homosexuality: The best of BUTT magazine so far

Celebrating BUTT magazine`s fifth anniversary, this book is a selection of the most fantastic and the most ridiculous interviews and photos that have appeared in BUTT so far. This anthology also finally makes a lot of material from the now rare, earlier issues of BUTT available again. For your convenience, the timeline in the book runs backwards, from the here and now all the way back to the summer of 2001, when the first issue of BUTT landed with a bang.

Like the magazine itself, this book offers an often amazingly realistic view on today's homosexual man, including conversations with Michael Stipe, Gus van Sant, Rufus Wainwright, Marc Jacobs, as well as contributions from Wolfgang Tillmans, Terry Richardson, Hedi Slimane, Asianpunkboy, and Helmut Lang, just to name a few.

"BUTT has single-handedly pioneered the notion of a smart, literate gay magazine yet also manages to be very dirty," notes filmmaker Bruce LaBruce in his foreword. "BUTT matters. BUTT fills a hole."

Each summer, teenage Elio clears out of his bedroom to make space for a visiting scholar.  The system works well, since Elio only needs to cross paths with the visitor at meals. This year, however, the scholar is a young American, Oliver.  As Elio's mother says, Oliver looks like a "muvi star:" his charm, easy manners, and wit make a place for him in the mansion, the village, and even Rome.

Mitch Mitchell is back! All aboard the Flying Scotsman as the horny hero of The Back Passage tackles a new case that mixes murder, mystery and mansex.

The Flying Scotsman, one of the world's legendary train journeys, has many attractions for Edward "Mitch" Mitchell, from the obliging porter to the mean guard to a troop of rough-and-ready soldiers in easily lifted kilts in the third-class carriage. But Mitch may not have time for them all before they arrive in London. When the train gets stuck in a tunnel, a dead body is found in the first-class toilet! Every-ready Mitch decides to intervene and solve the crime.

With his new Belgian sidekick Benoit, he pursues the killer through a crazy kaleidoscope of movie stars, drug dealers, royal scandals, and queens of every description.

Mitch intends to go all the way to figure it all out.

"A wickedly brisk blend of sexual romps and intricate sleuthing. Cliche-free erotica is a treasure: an intelligent mystery is a pleasure. Finding both between the covers of the same book is elegantly orgasmic." —Richard Labonte, Q Syndicate

The Palace of VarietiesThe Palace of Varieties by James Lear
Cleis Press (April 28, 2008): ISBN-10: 157344314X

Paul Lemoyne is a callow but resourceful 18-year-old who leaves the hinterlands for the big city. A steamy tearoom tryst initiates him into London's gay underground and lands him a job at the seedy Palace of Varieties, where the nonstop backstage blow jobs make the tacky onstage acts seem tame. "As hairy as a donkey and hung like one as well!" as one of his astonished bedmates notes, the indomitable Paul rises quickly from stagehand doing every man in sight to well-heeled rent boy, reluctant thief, and friend with benefits. He can't pass a salon, studio, back alley, or bathhouse without sampling its erotic possibilities. But when he falls into the clutches of butch, sadistic impresario Albert Abbott, even Paul's country-boy mettle may not help him.

James Lear was named 2008 Erotic Awards "Writer of the Year" for his novel The Palace of Varieties at the Erotic Awards in London. James Lear's distinctive mix of page-turning prose, droll humor, explicit sex, and memorable cast of sex-crazed studs of all ages, shapes, and inclinations make this an exciting companion to The Back Passage and Hot Valley.

 James Lear is the nom de plume of acclaimed novelist Rupert Smith. He is the author of several books under his own name, as well as a series of brilliantly funny (and explicitly erotic) novels published under the name James Lear, including The Back Passage, Hot Valley, and The Palace of Varieties. Smith lives in London.
