Full disclosure: I'm in this book.

I think the strength of this book is in the way it so elegantly displays the range of desire - and of how desire manifests - even among a single group (in this case, gay men.) When I wrote my piece, I went back to the (literal) beginning with my first real encounter with another man, but by no means is this the typical entry. The range of passion (and lust!) in this book is sure to have something for everyone looking to read about gay passion.

I’ll admit that I wanted it both ways. And yes, that is a bisexuality pun.

I Like It Like That is not just a collection of testimonials for I’ve read and still own several books like that. Most books about queer men tend either to be outright pornography, or else testimonials about their first time or about their coming out. Books like that are valuable and should be read and studied, tumblr_ohxfbxqo3g1tkjvpco2_1280but again there was always something missing for me whenever I read them. The way
