Best Gay Erotica 2005
The 10th anniversary edition of the best-selling gay erotica series in America
Winner of the 2005 Lambda Literary Award for Erotica
Brains, muscle, tenderness, kink. Like the perfect lover, Best Gay Erotica 2005 has the total package (and you'll never have to meet its parents). From the blushing explorations of a beautiful, untouched rural boy in Jonathan Asche's "Doll Boy" to the dark journey of Alpha Martial's "My Place" to the sexual confession of a homophobic "straight" boy in Alexander Rowlson's "Pink Triangle-Shaped Pubes," these 22 stories explore a heartpounding, tent-raising range of male-male desire.
