the first and the best

This set of anthologies was originally created to provide great erotica that were also safe sex. The result, thanks to the amazing authors, is a set of short stories that are hot and sweaty and downright breathtaking.

Excellent collection

A great collection of arousing and literary erotica. Some of the best and most imaginative pieces of writing in the genre. Very much worth the read!

Intelligent erotica for the mind and body

Very good read...with two stories by Anne Rice (always a good thing). I was particularly impressed with how the anthology of different writers flowed together very nicely. Often anthology books are very choppy...and I find myself reading one story at a time. Here, I read the whole book in one sitting. Aaron Travis' "Blue Light" was incredible. He really explores bondage erotica in a way that I have never seen before. Clay Caldwell's "Horny Corners" was extremely witty. Overall A+.

A must-have classic collection of contemporary gay erotica

The late Preston, the gifted author of the classic "Mr. Benson," began editing the "Flesh and The Word" series with this classic compilation of contemporary gay erotica. Each section begins with a thoughtful summary of the stories therein. Fans of Anne Rice will find especially valuable the two excised homoerotic chapters from "Exit to Eden," but there are several classic stories as well, including Aaron Travis's (AKA Steven Saylor) "Blue Light," one of the most amazing short stories ever written in any genre. Some of the best writers of gay erotica are represented, including T. R. Witomski, John Wagenhauser, and Samuel M. Steward. The book is as enlightening as it is arousing for people of all genders, and a groundbreaker in terms of promoting the acceptance of erotic writing as literature. A must-have for collectors of erotica!
