Erotic Romance, LGBTQ
Steamy encounters in the bathhouse have been the stuff of erotic legend for centuries—just ask Spartacus! Shane Allison busts open the sauna door in Steam Bath, a rollicking romp of pretty boys and dashing daddies out to cruise. From fresh-faced twinks to silver foxes and beautiful bears, Shane delivers sensational stories of sweaty, muscled men eager to shed their clothes. A towel-snapping good read, Steam Bath is filled with sizzling porn bodies, sexy boys next door, and tantalizing tricks that fully capture the erotic dynamics between men. A gorgeous, tattooed bad boy asks to be taught a hard lesson in Eric Del Carlo's "Steam Punk." A twink finds true love for one night at the baths, who blows his mind and more in Rafaelito V. Sy's "Raf's Journey." Things get hot and heavy when two college professors and a horny student stumble upon a Belgian bathhouse in Roscoe Hudson's "The Chaperones." And who knew that sex between two randy strangers could be so hot in "Across the Bay," by T. R. Verten? Gaybie award-winning editor Shane Allison is a rising gay erotica star who proves he is here to stay with Steam Bath.

I like a bit of erotica especially when it's gay male erotica. So I said I'd review this book not quite knowing what to expect. Well, I wasn't surprised really. This book is exactly what it sets itself out to be. A collection of various tales told by both men and women, all revolving in some way around the wonderfully evocative atmosphere of a steam bath somewhere in the world.
There's lots of men in towels, without towels, water dripping off bodies that are both muscled and fit and flabby and aged, and there is definitely a lot of really randy men doing what they fancy. It doesn't matter whether it's group sex, some bondage or BDSM or voyeurism; this book has something for everyone.
On the whole, the stories are well-written and well-told, making no apologies for being what they are. Male fantasies coming true in the steamy, hot saunas, locker rooms--twinks, bad boys, wannabe Dom's and subs, group sex, penises of various sizes and girths, men who simply want a good time and others who might be looking for something a little more meaningful.
It's an esoteric collection of tales to titillate and stimulate the senses, bring the world of sheer animal man sex into your living room or bedroom, and get you all hot and bothered without the added spice of sweaty steam and wet, slicked bodies. That's all in your mind as you read along.
If you enjoy short, raunchy and very sexual tales of men simply enjoying themselves and indulging in their base instincts, then you'll no doubt enjoy this well-crafted collection of erotic and sometimes downright dirty tales.
