A no-holds-barred novel of a '60s generation non-conformist who joins the sexual revolution of the '70s after a stint in the Army. If you want to read a mind-challenging book that openly endorses sexual freedom and hedonism by questioning religious dogma and conservative ideals, this one's for you. This lusty story of a free-thinking baby boomer will take you on a journey that starts in the post-war '40s of his birth. It continues through the conservative '50s of his childhood, the revolutionary '60s of his adolescence, and the sexually liberated '70s of his young adulthood. He becomes a swinger after returning from Vietnam and immerses himself in a world of unbridled debauchery with all the enthusiasm of an open-minded individualist unencumbered by conventional morality and organized religion. Traditional values of propriety and decency are replaced by the liberal avant garde views that take us back to the radical ideas of the '60s that still influence today's society; the kind of ideology that allows us to explore alternative lifestyles in a world of endless possibilities that open up once we free ourselves from the stale old-fashioned ways.

About the Author
The author is a baby boomer who was born in El Paso, Texas but grew up across the border in Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua. He went to elementary school in Juarez and then to Junior High and High School in El Paso. After which he joined the Army and spent his first two years in Fort Knox, Kentucky. He was then deployed to Vietnam for a tour of duty and was eventually honorably discharged. After his separation from the Army he moved to Los Angeles where he has been living ever since. He went to college there majoring in psychology and is currently a real estate agent. The book is classified as Fiction/Erotica but it is mostly based on personal experiences. It is very sexually explicit and hence the erotica classification, even though it is not exclusively about sex. The author would be more inclined to say that it is a book about radical liberal ideas that he has carried all his life which is typical of a member of that non-conformist counterculture generation of the 1960's that wanted to change the world. He uses events in his life as a soundboard to express these ideas that many people might find outrageous and offensive, but then again, many others may find interesting and mind-opening. It should be of no surprise that the writer became a swinger after his arrival in Los Angeles since sexual freedom was at the top of his liberal ideology. He openly endorses this lifestyle that he has been practicing since the early '70s both as a single and as a couple. Since he talks about his sexual experiences in unabashed detail, this book is not for the underage or people who are offended by graphic sexual descriptions. To summarize, the author wrote the book with the intention of sharing his ideas with the public and the hope that they will find them interesting and worth thinking about. Since most people read books to be entertained, he tried to make it as interesting and amusing as possiblenot to mention erotic. But by the same token, a lot of people also read books to be intellectually stimulated and challenged by innovative thoughts and philosophies and this one has plenty of that.
