Surfer Boys : Gay Erotic Stories edited by Neil Plakcy
Surfer Boys : Gay Erotic Stories edited by Neil Plakcy $33.99
A cover shot of a cute everyman clutching his surfboard attracted me to this book. Plakcy has collected together an anthology of sexy stories from writers from many parts of the globe. The common thread to Surfer Boys is the world of surf, wetsuits and board shorts. The beaches aren’t all the Californian clichés with Texas, Sydney and even Tunisia setting the sexy scenes. One story questions if a gay guy can be hard enough to surf, another is the story of a man getting over a break up and finding new beginnings on a beach as he rescues a fallen surfer.
Plakcy’s own experience as a writer and as editor of a previous collection of erotica show in his selction of well crafted stories. And yes you might need a tissue or two to clean up the aftermath, but these are also great stories that celebrate sex, a little romance and the pleasures and potential of guy-love.
There are 19 stories in all from many noted writers. This is a diverse and yes sexy collection to tide you through until your life next includes your own Mr Sexy Boardshorts.
