Hey! Name’s Adam Darling and hustling’s my game. When I was eighteen, my parents kicked me to the curb after catching me enjoying a good romp in the sack with my boyfriend. So I took the bus to Queens, NY and used my boyish looks to turn tricks to make my rent and fund my weakness for club clothing.
On the night of my twentieth birthday, everything came crashing down and, l

This was a great, HOT, very short story of a gay boy of 18 that was kicked to the curb when his parents found out he was gay. He moved to Queens, New York, and the only way he survived on the streets was turning tricks. He had his regulars which weren't too satisfying, at least for him, but it brought in enough money to afford a small place, some food, and some clothes to wear at the gay bar across the street. Adam Darling was essentially a twink, but he knew he wouldn't be able to pull that off ...more

The story starts off with Adam doing one of his tricks. Mr. Smith is a nasty, dirty, overweight man who likes his cock sucked by a pretty young thing. The inner dialogue makes it read as funny, but it still made me feel uncomfortable to read about how dirty he tastes and how bad his personal hygiene was. Then the next trick is a guy with a tiny dick who likes young boys. He’s a teacher and lusts after his students, but uses Adam to cope. This too was written more as a co

Set in Queens, N.Y. The wealthy Mr. Smith (60+) paid Adam Darling (18, aka Naggy) $70 to perform fellatcio on him.
The parents David Darling & Celeste Darling had kicked him out long ago.

Living on the streets as a twink could be very tough at times.
Don Haverhill was next he enjoyed anal sex. $50.
Colton Colt Reynolds (25+) & Adam met at the Whiplash bar. Colt bought him a drink.
They got a room at the Red Roof Inn.

Same place/same time every Friday visit from Colt now.

If you love some HOT, SEXY STEAMY man love, then you HAVE to get this. Adam Darling, is a street smart, young man that left home when his parents found out he was gay. He started to turn tricks to survive. This is a short story and chalk full of MM sex. Harper Jewel has given us another SEXY, Male/Male story.

After being kicked out by his parents Adam is reduced to turning tricks for older men, it not only gets him basic foods, it also pays for his passion for club cloths. This short story was so sexy and fun, when Adam meets a hunky cowboy things go bonkers. Really enjoyed this one, a nice, short read.

A short story about a young man whore, and what then happened... Not much deep emotions, some desperate thoughts and some liking. In the end of story there’s light in horizon and a happy ending for now, maybe even happier future. Nicely written, too.

​Oh my, a MC that you really feel for. Kicked out by his parents after he was caught with his then boyfriend in a rather compromising position (butt sex has that effect), he heads to New York. Using his boyish looks, he then turns tricks to make his money for rent and his big weakness - club clothes. His place may be the worst possible, but his club clothes are ace!

On one of his evenings out visiting the gay club Whiplash, he meets Colt, and a has a weekend he will never forget. H
