Erotic Memories

Schimel, Lawrence (editor) and Richard LaBonte (editor). "I Like It Like That: True Stories of Gay Male Desire", Arsenal Pulp, 2009. Erotic Memories Amos Lassen Those of us that regularly read gay literature are familiar with Lawrence Schimel and Richard LaBonte as they are regarded as masters of the gay anthology. Here they give us quite a collection of sex stories. Each story is special in its own way and there is not a dull story in the anthology. They are sexy, intelligent, and literary and they go beyond the borders to which many will not touch. Reading the stories makes us aware of gay consciousness and the condition of the gay male in the 21st century. There is a great deal of diversity here--as we know gay men, like everyone else, are not all alike. Desire and fantasy changes from man to man. Included are thirty-four stories make up this collection---some by authors that we all have read before and some by a new generation of gay writers. As diverse as the authors are so are the subjects that they write about. This makes a book that has something for everyone and there are even two stories that are illustrated. There is a difference between porn and erotica and this is erotica in that it has something to say about the way we have live and continue to live today. The stories are about desire and whether that desire is present or in out memory, it is the basic theme of the anthology. I understand that the stories are true and therefore they are that much more erotic because they actually happened. I'll close by giving you some of the writers---Jameson Currier, Sky Gilbert, Aaron Hamburger, Wayne Hoffman, Shaun Levin and Tim Miller to name just a few. They look to their memories to tell us their stories and I, for one, am glad that they did.

Something for everyone, in this well-written gay erotic anthology

One thinks of "sexual diversity" as differentiating between the basic categories of sexual orientation, but it is much more than that. Within one such category, gay males, lies an almost unlimited number of variations of desires, fantasies and fetishes, many of which are explored by the authors contributing to this new anthology, edited by the team that brought us "First Person Queer" and "Second Person Queer." Consisting of thirty-four vignettes, averaging about five pages each, by a talented group of authors including Larry Duplechan, Jeff Mann, Shaun Levin, Aaron Hamburger and Tim Miller. The subjects range from football and wrestling fetishes, to fantasies about seducing "straight" men, older men, bodybuilders, S & M, threesomes or "bears," and erotic takes on massage, "hooking up" via the internet or phone chat lines. Also included are two illustrated stories by Justin Hall and Steve MacIsaac, known for their gay comics and graphic novels, respectively. There is likely something here for every gay man, well written and presented better than in most other erotic anthologies. I give it a full five sweaty stars out of five!
