    Sexy and Literary, Comic and Poignant

    An original and brilliant collection of literary gay erotica, crammed full of wit and sex. The art behind Currier¿s stories lies in his ability to first snare the reader¿s attention and then weave in all the details. Take ¿First Shave,¿ for example, a terrific and arousing story about a younger gay man shaving his older boyfriend. Or ¿Lessons¿ ¿ which takes what appears to be a man¿s initial disappointment while answering a hardcore personal ad ¿ Butt Play 101 ¿ and turns it into a surprisingly touching encounter between two completely different men. Currier can be romantic (¿Impromptu,¿ about an unexpected encounter during a vacation in Venice), poignant (¿Buddies,¿ a lushly written, insightful ode about a sex buddy), and comic (¿A Date with Dracula, a Trick with Tarzan,¿ a laugh out-loud tale about one man¿s misadventures while on two blind dates). There are several short fiction masterpieces in this book, too: ¿Fearless¿ reveals the dating scenario between two New York men, one HIV-negative, the other HIV-positive. ¿What You Learn,¿ one of the several short stories in this book written in the second person point of view, finds a 28-year-old gay man confronting the fantasy of his former swim teacher ¿ a man who saved him from drowning at age 15. ¿Snow¿ has a businessman trapped in a hotel room with a hustler during a blizzard. ¿Alibis¿ links a sequence of tricks through a distinctive tattoo. ¿Grownups¿ discloses sexual politics and permutations in and out of the office. And the title story delightfully catalogs the introspections and interactions between two gay couples who meet during vacations in Las Vegas ¿ one, mature and argumentative; the other, young and dauntless.
