Erin is a woman with two dark secrets, which is why she never thought she’d fall in love. When she does, however, it is head over heels - and with a man who has a secret of his own.WARNING: This 5,263-word short story (about 26 pages) is a steamy read that features explicit scenes of passionate lovemaking and sexual themes and may be too much for some readers to handle!
If sex remains taboo in the Philippines, gay and lesbian sex is still even more unspoken. “How do you do it?” is still the most common question queer Pinoys get. Even after that question is answered, there is still the popular notion that only heterosexual sex is “the real thing,” and anything else is just a deviation or an attempt to replicate the male-female dynamic of human contact.
This book makes up for this history of invalidation. An unprecedented dirty dozen, Sison’s and Casocot’s stories are direct and unflinching. They make no qualms or apologies about the nature of sex between two men or between two women. They explore courtship and contact between same-gender partners with humor, hesitation and obsession, and eventually take the reader with them as they reel from heartbreak.
Whether you consider straight sex “the real thing,” or are among the LGBTQ community that is hungry for a true account of Filipino gay and lesbian loving, one thing this collection and its characters do, over and over without exhaustion, is to keep on trying.
A handsome 30-year-old gay Brit returns from over 10 years in the US, where he became an award-winning fashion designer with a top fashion house. Scott Farrell has left behind his lover, a famous porn star, to spend Christmas with his lesbian friends in dear old Plymouth, a place that will never, ever, be the same!
Scott meets a slightly younger guy, which results in a relationship that a certain evil racist does not approve of. He tells Scott, in more ways than one, to "get out of town or else" after a new-found friend, an Indian lady, and her cat die mysteriously. But that's only the beginning of Scott's troubles.
TROPIC OF CANCER BY HENRY MILLER. Tropic of Cancer is regarded as a masterpiece with Time magazine rating it as one of the 100 most important novels of the 20th century. It is an unforgettable, confessional, warts and all novel of the author and his friends riotous adventures in Paris during the Depression. It changed censorship laws in the US where it was published decades after it was written and reading it today amplifies the debt that modern writers owe Miller. Ian McShane’s rich and sexy voice provides the layers and depth to a compelling listening experience.
