From the Inside Flap
No other genre of entertainment regularly explores what it means for men to make love. For all its faults, porn is still an essential chronicle of our lives. Make no mistake, the point and purpose of pornography in gay culture is radically changing. The industry has been buffeted by a perfect storm of technological advances, financial calamities and social upheaval.
Thus the importance of a book like this one. Gay Porn Heroes celebrates 100 iconic men who rose above the pack and have inspired us for over four decades. They soothe and provoke, flirt, irritate and tease. They are the models, the actors, the fuel for our fantasy. No matter how dramatically the world changes, we always have need for heroes.
