Recently I discovered a critic who decried me as a 'porn author', and cited Pirates of the Narrow Seas as an example of pornography I had written. This illustrates the point I was addressing in writing Pirates of the Narrow Seas in the first place: there are people out there who automatically assume that gay=porn. When writing PoNS I made the deliberate decision not to include explicit sex in PoNS precisely because I was tired of the assumption that everything gay is pornographic, and that by implication, gay men are hypersexual monsters with uncontrollable appetites who can't be trusted and therefore must be suppressed for the good of society.

The rest of of the post appears on my blog at: http://narrowseas.blogspot.com/2011/0...
