6 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Kevin Killian HALL OF FAME on May 14, 2006
Format: Paperback
This is the first volume in this series I've read, and at first I'm looking at it, like, mweh, but then once I gave it a fair shot i realized I should have trusted in the expertise and experience of editors Frederique Delacoste and Felice Newman, for nearly all of the stories here, some of which I had read before, and two of which I remembered hearing from their authors' own mouths, proved interesting and thought provoking. This isn't a book of erotica or a stroke book, it's more like a whole issue of The New Yorker if The New Yorker gave any attention to sex. The style ranges from an intimate memoir to strong reportage.

Stephen Elliott's piece on being bound and beaten by a girlfriend is really extraordinary, and I think must sum up Elliott's project for anyone interested in this provovative author, for he has taken aspects of his own private masochistic experience and extrapolated them into a general theory of happiness. I've heard the envious describe him as sort of a Johnny One Note, but this ia a splendid apologia worthy of Cardinal Newman; it's called "Just Always Be Good."

Jeff Weinstein writes an op ed sort of piece about his very mixed feelings about BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN (the Lee movie), interspersed with memories of a lifetime in queer activism. Like Elliott's piece, you get the feeling not of sexuality as a marketable commodity but as a facet of life here truly integrated with the rest of one's romantic, political, and geo-social personalities. He is a winning writer whose words I will ponder for the rest of the day.

1 of 2 people found the following review helpful By susan jay, author of The House of Yes on February 23, 2011
Format: Paperback
Reading the stories in this book made me feel like I had a front row seat on the lives of various people I wouldn't care to meet doing things I wish I could have spared them. The sex wasn't sexy, nor were the characters in the stories, though well drawn and believable, interesting enough. I normally might find an inside account of the professional sex industry fascinating for instance, but as it is described in Porn Valley Story, I just was glad when it was over. While there were interesting statements about sexual inclinations and preferences of many characters in the book, the writers never moved me to care about them as people.

A previous reviewer likened this collection to typical New Yorker stories. I believe this person is correct. There is the same flat feel to these stories as one finds in The New Yorker. If you subscribe to that, you'll love these.
