If being gay in the new millennium is a good thing, why is it still so unthinkable for a straight man to get fucked now and then? In these dark and dirty stories Ken Shakin probes the mind and body of the man next door. The hunk, the nerd, the thug, and the dentist. Anonymous men prowl the pages of reportage about normal life and sex stranger than fiction, told as literary gossip by a storyteller who only has to pick up the phone to hear all about it, straight from the horse's mouth. In each twisted tale top and bottom reveal themselves through a common interest, the act that resists the label. Opposites attract, whatever else you call it. Even in the men's room.
