The “bottoms" in these stories are all willing, attractive young men who crave both sex and approval from men who are usually older and more powerful. In keeping with the D/s tradition of representing submissive characters with lower-case names and pronouns, none of the titles in this book have capital letters.

Here a porn star openly asks his therapist for what he wants:

"'It would be easier for me to know you approved of me if you fucked me,' Tristan said. 'That's how I know I'm good enough.'

These were great stories and well thought out. It just seemed that many elements repeated over and over. This could have been condensed to about 4 stories and kept each more original and differentiated from the others.

This was not what most would call romance. It was definitely about sex and slutty bottom boys who want it bad and the tops who use them for what they want. That didn't bother me in the least but might not be for everyone.

The writing was solid. I would recommend this to t

The Boy Can’t Help It is a compilation of fourteen erotic short tales by author Gavin Atlas that provide for a vicarious and highly arousing reading experience. His stories are often aptly referred to as “stroke” or “one-handed” reads and there’s a reason for this. They are damned hot!

This collection includes previously published titles featured in popular anthologies such as: “The Only Bottom for a Thousand Miles” (Island Boys), “Blue Star Boy” (Surfer Boys), “Hercules to the Rescue” (Hard Hats

A collection of stories with lots of hot sex, very close to porn but with the occasional glimpse of emotion thrown in. I liked the fact that it's an unashamed exploration of the mind of the "bottom boy" as well as some perspective of the mind of the man (or men) who top him. Entertaining and fun, good for a short break because each story is very short and can be read on its own.

Very enjoyable despite the stories being very, very short. This is just pure porn featuring insatiable bottoms who'll take it from anyone so nothing much I can say about it except that I thought it was rather well-written. Makes me want to check now whether the author writes longer books. I'd not come across him until now.
The Boy Can't Help It: Sensual Stories of Young Bottoms is a collection of Gavin Atlas' erotic and raw short stories.

As the title indicates, all are stories about bottoms and their erotic fantasies. For the most part these thirteen stories contain short, raw, sweaty, marathon-style sexual encounters. In other words, these are down and dirty, erotic fantasy-based "stroke" shorts, where in some cases the more the merrier applies and no is not a word often used. Gavin Atlas' talent for writing grea

I just want to make a note here about how long it has taken me to read this. I have gotten very busy with writing my own story and it in no way reflects on my opinion of this collection. I've enjoyed every story that I have read. I've also enjoyed several other shorts he has written. I just don't want anyone thinking that I've put this collection on the back burner because I couldn't read any further. Time permitting, I will finish this soon.

Fun, sexy, and almost pure porn. All the stories are meant to be erotic and based around sex with defined top/bottom roles. Better and more enjoyable if you read every once in a while versus all at once, but pretty hot regardless.

OK, I'm not sure I buy into the every bottom yearns to be ravished but this collection of stories is a lot of fun to read.

In their own way each of the stories is a love story, but I wouldn't look for a lot of meaning within them.

Look, it's porn, pure and simple *g*. But it also fun and sexy romp porn -- that I can get back from time to time (since this is an anthology) when I feel like I want to read smut. We need it once in a while, it's a healthy dose :)
