Format: Paperback
And witty, wise and wonderful words they are too. This has to be the most overlooked gay nonfiction title of the year. The cover and title aren't as titillating as the first volume of his memoirs, "Autopornography," but the writing's better. Scott shares with us the story behind STEAM magzine, the messy messy inside dirt on "Making Porn" (the play and movie inspired by his own porn star career), and his thoughts on approaching death. Typical of Scott, though, it's anything but depressing or maudlin. A sexy, smart, funny and inimitably shocking read from a gay icon who is sorely missed.

14 of 15 people found the following review helpful By Carl W Cate on November 24, 2001
Format: Paperback
I love this book so much,where to begin. First, Scott O'hara was an original.Just from his writing,which is the only way I have to know him,he was a multifaceted and complicated guy. His writing speaks volumes about his love for freedom,both freedom to do what he wanted, and freedom from the more repressive elements of gay culture.
As a libertarian, I appreciate Scott's ability to see things with his own unique gay libertarian-antiauthoritarian viewpoint.
I have been moved by his writings to embrace more risk taking,more loving,and more open expression of myself and sexuality as a result of reading this work.Isn't this what life is all about?
I do wish they had been able to cure his Non-Hodgkins lymphoma,my own mom has it.
Definitely a good read and a keeper.
