Overview

It was love at first sight when Daniel and Marc met but through the years that same love became tainted. Daniel, an alcoholic and sex addict, has found himself unable to resist the lure of other men. When Marc discovers this infidelity, he leaves Daniel. Who begins a dark descent into sexual tryst after tryst. Shades of Gay reveals the myriad desires a lost man can permit his body and soul to revel in despite the pain they bring. But can such fleeting moments of pleasure bring meaning to life? Will Daniel realize that the love he had with Marc is worth more than sweat and semen spent in other men’s beds?

“Clarke’s Shades of Gay is a compelling look into what it means to be a prisoner to sexual addiction. His very frank and open documentation of Daniel’s sexual trysts enlightens readers on the extent one will go to to satisfy their sexual cravings and how the internal desire is never satisfied. Many readers will see themselves in Daniel, myself included, at a point in their lives during which the focus was on ‘getting off’ and nothing else.”
—James R. Koury, Publisher of Diversity Rules Magazine

    This a well written and compelling book about one mans' struggle

    This a well written and compelling book about one mans' struggle with sexual addiction.
    The story follows the protagonist, Daniel, through his tribulations with this oft misunderstood addiction. Daniels' sexual compulsions are almost palpable. As Daniel increasingly yields to his addiction, we can feel ourselves swimming with him in his vast sea of disillusionment. His life becomes increasingly disarrayed. Losing himself in his erotic exploits, Daniels' addiction ultimately becomes the driving force in his life, putting both him, and his relationship with the love of his life, Marc, at risk. Compounding Daniels' distress is his frequent use of alcohol as a panacea.
    Since many people have no real concept of just what sexual addiction is, I think this book will be not only absorbing, but enlightening as well. Certainly a must read for anyone dealing with this problem, or seeking to understand this addiction.
