Shane Allison is more daring than any other gay writer today, and he pushes the boundaries further than anyone else. In Homeboys, we ride shotgun with the wild and fancy-free outlaws of the streets. What happens when two horny members from LA’s notorious Crips and Bloods are involved in a secret love affair? Or when a few members of the Greasers and the Socs meet for hot group sex in an abandoned freight train? Feel what it´s like to keep it on the DL with Del, Norteos-style, and listen all about how to get hazed by Asian Boyz. This bold and so-bad-it´s-good audiobook explores the erotic lives of thugs, drug runners, mischievous miscreants, dirty cops, prison gang bangers, and warriors of the wild. As 2Pac says, it´s all about ´´Snatchin´ hearts and jackin´ marks´´. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Shannon Gunn, Greg Mason.

Gay sexy stories set to the irresistible beat of the city. Many a confident urban gay man in the Castro, West Hollywood, and Chelsea was once a wide-eyed newcomer. Every year thousands of young men arrive in these queer-friendly neighborhoods, seduced by city life and its sexual possibilities. In Where the Boys Are, Richard Labonté collects raunchy memoirs and stories about these newly arrived country boys. Here are stories of first times, initiations, bars, backrooms, dance clubs, and parties, reading (or misreading) the codes - and sometimes teaching those city boys a thing or two. 1.

Winner of Randy Shilts Award In the half century before the Nazis rose to power, Berlin became the undisputed gay capital of the world. Activists and medical professionals made it a city of firsts-the first gay journal, the first homosexual rights organization, the first Institute for Sexual Science, the first sex reassignment surgeries-exploring and educating themselves and the rest of the world about new ways of understanding the human condition. In this fascinating examination of how the uninhibited urban culture of Berlin helped create our categories of sexual orientation and gender identity, Robert Beachy guides readers through the past events and developments that continue to shape and influence our thinking about sex and gender to this day.

A moment comes for every addict when the consequences are so great or the pain is so bad that the addict´s life becomes out of control because of his or her behavior. Some are news-making moments, such as the public censure when a congressman, minister, general, or professional athlete is cited for unacceptable sexual behavior. For most people those moments are followed by resolves to ´´never do it again´´, but somehow after the promise is made, they often find themselves in the exact same location doing something they vowed never to do again. That is addiction. And for some, this addiction is more difficult to diagnose than in others. Such is the case for gay men. For some gay men fully committed to open sexual choices and experiences, modifying their sexual behavior and restricting their sexual freedoms is like going back in time and surrendering to homophobic attitudes often found in conservative culture. It just doesn´t feel right. After all, the urban gay male culture surrounding him fully supports his sexual exploits as long as the sex is safe. And since gay male sex addicts may not discuss their sexual behavior even with good friends, nobody challenges them on their late-night exploits in unsafe places, their arrest record or brushes with the law, or potential health risks because of their behavior. The truth is gay male sex addicts are not compulsively sexual because of their sexual orientation, but rather as a consequence of their individual psychological issues and biological predisposition toward addiction. This is exactly the same set of risk factors presented by straight male sex addicts. Unfortunately, for the gay (sex) addict, his increasingly destructive patterns of behavior take place against a cultural background of dramatically greater sexual and social freedoms than those enjoyed by his heterosexual peers. 1.

A rural expatriate’s struggle to reconcile family, home, love, and faith with the silence of the prairie land and its people. Melanie Hoffert longs for her rural North Dakota home with its grain trucks and empty main streets. But like many, she followed the out-migration pattern to a more urban life. When she returns home during harvest to confront the silences that have kept her at arm’s length from her childhood community, she finds it’s not easy. When asked if she´s found a ´´fella,” rather than explain that she dates women, she stops breathing and changes the subject. In this evocative memoir, Hoffert offers a deeply personal and poignant meditation on land and community, taking listeners on a journey of self-acceptance and reconciliation. 1. Language: English.
