If You've Got It, Flaunt It

Some men like to watch, and some men like to be watched. Some men are real Show-Offs. Award-winning editor Richard Labonté has gathered a set of stories sure to fire up every fantasy of seeing and being seen: the desired body savored voyeuristically through a window, through a crack in the closet door, through a camera lens. Sometimes he's right across the room, reclining in a bathhouse hot tub or wearing a leave-nothing-to-the-imagination thong around the locker room.

Michael Bracken's burglar hides "In the Closet" while listening to the man of the house entertain a guest—all the way. A voyeur's dreams come true in "Naked Summer Blues" when two gorgeous beach studs perform for him and finally invite him in as the middle man. The coy narrator in "Vacancy" spends a long, hot summer tempting a watchful neighbor. The tantalizing, teasing tales in Show-Offs remind us of just how arousing looking can be—the eyes have it!

Synopsis:

Some men like to watch, and some men like to be watched. Some men are real Show Offs.The universe has a way of balancing things out, doesnt it? Were not talking sidewalk cruising here, that natural inclination for one man to appreciate another mans body in passing, perhaps leading to full-on sex, perhaps fueling, once hes alone, a climactic fantasy. No, the stories in this collection are more furtive: the desired body savored voyeuristically through a window, through a crack in the closet door, through a camera lens, sometimes from right across the room; the body desired flaunting manly wares while bathing in a river, playing in a bathhouse, wearing a leaving-nothing-to-the-imagination thong.

Forget “like”: some men need to be watched; some men need to watch. These are their stories.
