Synopses & Reviews
Bars and chat rooms? Forget it. Colleges, libraries, and bookstores are the real hotbeds of hooking up. Many men find their first affirmation of gay sexuality on an obscure shelf at the campus library, so its only natural that they return to bookish spots for further research hands-on, of course. The original memoirs and stories in Sex by the Book treat books and sex as two equally vital, interlocking obsessions and show how they can be powerful forces for fantasy, delusion, arousal, and seduction. A university student makes a sexy punk his new major in a bookstore's bathroom stall. A cultured older man brings home an abusive hustler who quotes Wittgenstein. A beautiful young man meets the author of an S/M abduction story, eager to be the butch Daddys next victim. These and other tales of satyriasis and bibliophilism are just the ticket for every smoldering bookworm longing to have his glasses and pants removed by the right guy.
