Sometimes Rough and Always Ready
Beautiful bears, delectable daddies, silver-fox studs and hunky hustlers—Lammy-lauded Larry Duplechan serves up steamy, man-on-man sex of the highest literary quality in this year's edition of Best Gay Erotica. Landon Dixon takes us on a carnal journey with a man who knows how to please all he services in "Everybody's Boy." Watch an all-too-willing sub as he is suspended from the ceiling and treated to a group beating—with a sweet ending—in "The Piñata Conquest," by Boot LS. Huck Pilgrim lets you hear a cocky young shoplifter whimper and beg as he endures the meaty punishment exacted by a muscle-daddy mall cop in "Five-Finger Discount." Editor Duplechan tag-teamed with guest judge Joe Mannetti, a former erotic performer and Mr. International Daddy Bear, to pick this year's crop, and you'll agree: their selections celebrate gay sex and sexual freedom in all its sweaty, hedonistic glory.

This is a book that delivers what it says it is--an eclectic mix of stories, mostly lusty and raunchy, involving couples and ménages, and delivering a punch to the gut when it comes to the honesty of the writing, and the fact that this is a collection of tales about men having sex with each other with no holds barred and enjoying every minute. It's about pleasure, getting release and damn anything that gets in the way.
They say erotica is really about the sex first and the story second. I think this book offers a great mix of both. There are the occasional elements of realism and grittiness. 'Five-Finger Discount' is the story of Jimmy, a young man who is coerced into giving a store owner a good time after he (Jimmy) was found shop lifting. But then there are the moments of give and take, as in the story of Eliot, Michael and Jamie, in 'A Port in the Storm'. This is a tale about three people, all with their role to play in the sexual relationship and all extremely willing partners in anything the other two want to dish out. It's about the interplay of who really is the boss and just how much the others are prepared to take to make it work.
The writing is varied, the styles vastly differing form one story to another. Some stories are simply a case of giving and taking as hard as necessary, others have a seduction element to them, as in Max Vos' s "A Walk in the Park' about Hank and Burke, about turning the tables and letting the inner animal out to roar and conquer.
But in all of these stories there is raw passion, sex and downright dirtiness, as men literally get to grips with each other and simply let loose. After all, isn't that what you'd expect in a book like this one?
