Allison, Shane. Editor. “Middle Men: Gay Erotic Threesomes”, Cleis Press, 2012.
Three Makes a Group
When I see the name Shane Allison, I know that I will be reading smut but do not misunderstand; that is not a bad thing. Allison really knows how to write erotica and one of his own stories are in this collection here. He also chose the eighteen stories that make up this collection of men having sex with each other in groups.
The authors included here are Shane Allison, the editor, Mark Wilson, Andrew Cheney-Feid, Barry owe, Jay Starr, Gregory L. Norris, Bob Vickery, H.L. Champa, Sleepy Lopez, Landon Dixon, Dominic Santi, Christopher Pierce, Morgan Honeyman, Derrick Della Giorgia, Jamie Freeman, Eric Del Carlo, Bobby Starr and T. Hitman.
If you take a good look around you, you will understand quickly that the only taboo we have left in society is the word “taboo” itself. In fact most fantasies happen these days so the word fantasy also does not hold much meaning anymore. Group sex has always been a fantasy of many gay men and through this book; we see how popular it really is. Three are all kinds of groups and they number from three upward. For me, at least, the fantasy still exists and since it is not likely to happen, I rely on the book to feed my libido. An added interest is the editor/anthologizer’s introduction which is as hot as anything I have read.
