Gay romance with effeminate hero

A man is effeminate when his behaviour, appearance or his speech is considered to be feminine, but he is still a man mentally and physically and identifies exactly as such.

"Effeminate" does not include men who have had - or want to have - an operation and treatment to change their gender.

I agree particularly when the effeminate man loves bottoming. It's like if muscled men bottoming it's hot, sexy (heck if "straight" men bottoming it's hot) but when it's the skinny gay guy bottoming it's weak, sissy, stereotype, etc, etc. Sadly those jibes even sprouted by "fellow" gay men. :(

Exactly! I would love some protagonist like those you described. Until now, the only one I have found is Scarlet in "Scarlet and the white wolf" by Kirby. Just because the body is weak it doesn't mean the character has to be too. Do you have some good book with effeminate but strong bottom?

If you haven't already read it, try Captive Prince: Volume One: one of the main characters is quite feminine and he bottoms,but he's very, veeeery far from being weak. The plot and the writing are really amazing, I strongly recommend it. However I have to warn you: it's the first book of a trilogy and the third one doesn't have a release date yet. I'll take no responsibility for the emotional state the wait will leave you in :D

Vanessa Thank you, :D I will wait for the third book before I start reading this one.
