A classic of modern gay S/M fiction, Mr. Benson is the compelling story of a young man´s quest for the perfect master. In a West Village leather bar, he finds wealthy, sophisticated, exacting Aristotle Benson, who leads him down the path of erotic enlightenment, teaching him to accept cruelty as love, anguish as affection, and ultimately, Mr. Benson as his master. If John Preston, the masterly, handsome author of more than 30 books, was himself a gay icon, his character Mr. Benson defined the culture of gay sex for an entire generation. When Mr. Benson first appeared in the pre-AIDS early 1980s, its unabashed celebration of male sexuality made it a cult favorite among gay men, many of whom wore T-shirts declaring that they were "looking for Mr. Benson". The novel´s fresh voice and insights into identity, desire, power, and love influenced a generation of writers and editors, including Anne Rice, Samuel Delany, Michael Lowenthal, Laura Antoniou, and Joan Nestle. 1.

Pauletta is a beautiful drag queen in San Franciscos Castro District. He and some of his friends celebrate the New Year in erotic fashion,and almost everybody has a great time ringing in the new and ringing out the old. The description of their celebration is written graphically and in great detail, so this book is for adults only. ----- PG Excerpt ----- The Purple Knight, by far the best gay bar in the world in Pauls opinion, was preparing to put on a big New Years Eve bash for their regular patrons and anybody else who wanted to join in the fun. He was really looking forward to it, and had already bought a new red micro-mini skirt and a pair of red crotchless panties and a matching padded bra. They would go well with his sheer pink blouse and red pumps with a matching purse, and he expected to be the belle of the ball. Paul is gay and, more than that, he is a drag queen, who loves going to friendly venues, especially The Purple Knight, and picking up men for some hot and mutually enjoyable sex. He realized his true nature by the time he was 18 years old and still in high school, cautiously eyeing the other nude boys in the shower after Physical Education classes and resisting the romantic attractions he usually felt toward them. Being fully aware of the unreasoning animosity toward people of his sexual orientation in the small town in the Bible Belt where he lived, Paul kept his wants and needs to himself until he finished high school. At the age of 19, he headed to San Francisco and the Castro District, where gay men like he are not only accepted but actually respected for their decisions to live life as they were meant to.His life out of the closet didnt begin with wearing womens clothing, but he always liked the feel of panties on his body and pubic area. His sex partners liked them also, especially when they peeled them off him, and Paul eventually went all out, with sexy skirts and blouses and sleazy lingerie from Fredericks of Hollywood. He works on the order desk of a high-tech company, and all his coworkers and almost everybody else he encounters are aware of his sexual orientation but hardly anybody gives it much of a thought, considering it to be none of their concern. At work, he wears his shoulder-length blonde hair in a ponytail and attires himself in khaki pants and sport shirts and deck shoes.When he goes out cruising, however, his hair swings loose, and he likes to try, with carefully-applied makeup and high heels and mini-skirts, to be as alluring as the sexiest women in a city known for its beautiful women. The men, both gay and straight, who have experienced sex with Pauletta generally agree he succeeds much better than would have been expected.He strolled into his favorite gay bar at ten oclock on the night of December 31, and was greeted by his friends as Pauletta, which is the name he always uses when in drag. After hanging up his faux fur coat, worn against the wind and fog and chill of the San Francisco winter night, he joined them. The place was crowded, mostly with men, but with a few women who enjoy the company of gay men. Some of the men were essentially straight, but preferred sex with gay men, especially drag queens, for a variety of reasons, and they looked with lust at the hot young blonde who had sauntered in. There were other men who were clad in erotic feminine attire in The Purple Knight that night but, if a vote had been taken, Pauletta would almost certainly have been named as the sexiest of the celebrants there.
Can a high school crush become a happily ever after? Twenty years ago, Paxton Marshall realized he liked boys, in particular, his brother´s best friend, Brad. Pax now runs a successful art gallery, but he´s never found anyone who stirs his heart the way Brad did. Brad Watson is back in town for his 20th high school reunion. However, the celebration of long-ago days is the last thing on his mind. He´s there for one reason: to finally tell Pax how he feels. Pax is shocked to learn Brad is not only gay, but also interested in him. Dating a man in Ames Bridge isn´t as simple as it sounds, though. In order to make a relationship work, both men are going to have to bolster their courage and alter their expectations. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Greg Boudreaux.

In this innovative celebration of diversity and affirmation of individuality in animals and humans, Joan Roughgarden challenges accepted wisdom about gender identity and sexual orientation. A distinguished evolutionary biologist, Roughgarden takes on the medical establishment, the Bible, social science--and even Darwin himself. She leads the reader through a fascinating discussion of diversity in gender and sexuality among fish, reptiles, amphibians, birds, and mammals, including primates. Evolution´s Rainbow explains how this diversity develops from the action of genes and hormones and how people come to differ from each other in all aspects of body and behavior. Roughgarden reconstructs primary science in light of feminist, gay, and transgender criticism and redefines our understanding of sex, gender, and sexuality. A new preface shows how this witty, playful, and daring book has revolutionized our understanding of sexuality. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Carrington MacDuffie.

On January 21, 2017, the day after Donald J. Trump´s inauguration, more than three million marchers of all ages and walks of life took to the streets as part of the largest protest in American history. In red states and blue states, in small towns and major urban centers, from Boise to Boston, Bangkok to Buenos Aires, people from 82 countries - on all seven continents - rose up in solidarity to voice a common message: Hear our voice. It became the largest global protest in modern history.

They provide an inside look at how the idea for the event originated, how it was organized, how it became a global movement that surpassed their wildest expectations, and how they are sustaining and building on the widespread outrage, passion, and determination that sp... 1.
