About Peter Schutes
Afraid of his own desires, he sought refuge in celibacy. It was only after moving to Hollywood in the 1930's that he reconnected with his primal urges and indulged his sexual desires once more.
He did not begin writing until the 1950's. He found catharsis and psychological healing through his short stories and novels that depicted micro-worlds where love and sex between men were natural and free. His graphic language and taboo topics kept his work out of print outside Denmark until the landmark Memoirs vs Massachusetts (Fanny Hill) ruling that led to an explosion in American gay porn. Peter's prolific volumes of steamy men's tales were some of the finest literature to grace the shelves of dirty bookstores.

The life of a small town sheriff is difficult for different reasons than that of a big city cop. In Dowd's case, having his particular reputation isolates him more than most. In small townships, the sheriff often becomes the factotum. He may moonlight as a mechanic or run a general store. His budget comes from county taxes, which fall short. He may need to repair the brakes on his cruiser and replace missing letters in the office typewriter. He doesn't do it for the love of money; he must love the law and the people of the town he has sworn to protect.
The autonomy and power are perks of the job. Most sheriffs will not abuse this privilege, but there are temptations. Autonomy allows the sheriff to budget his time as he sees fit. He makes his own schedule. Far more dangerous is the power he has over the lives of his citizens. Strong morals must prevail over temptation, be it greed, envy, lust or any other sin. This story concerns a sheriff who struggles to balance his personal sense of right and wrong with his primal urges. His morals are his own, but you must judge if they are virtuous or sinful.
Bigger Isn't Always Better
A young Hercules signs up for the Athenian Navy, where he meets the 'Tripod' Lippos, a banished Prince from a distant kingdom. Hercules has a huge problem, but it is dwarfed by that of Lippos. In a society where being "small down there" is highly valued, these two are elephantine misfits. Together they forge an adventure that takes them to deserted islands, orgies, castles, caves and anywhere else the two overly-endowed men can show off and share their prowess with the few admirers who appreciate them.
This early work of erotic fiction was written by the author in the summer of 1957. The story draws partly from his early memories of Panama, when his father moved the family to the Culebra Cut. Penis size was an obsession for Peter. Enduring pain for another’s pleasure is the overarching theme of this work, whereby the act of giving oneself to another is the goal, not the orgasms, which are mere side effects. Peter himself had a reputation for being extraordinarily well endowed. In this story, the narrative focuses on Quentin Fournier, a man with a less than average endowment. Friends remarked that Peter lost many potential love interests because of his large penis. Dale Clark, who appears later in the story, is likely a narrative self portrait of the author. Sadly, no one like Quentin could be identified in Peter’s life. The anatomically compatible couple living out their years together in San Francisco at the end of the story was pure fiction. Peter never found a lasting love.
This isn’t the appointment Vicente expected after he graduated seminary.
Gifted with an extraordinary endowment, whispers about the statuesque Mexican priest drift back to the old world. When he's called to St. Peter's in Rome, he can't believe his luck. But all is not what it seems. Demon-loving priests keep him locked up in the bowels of the Vatican under heavy guard. As the priest with the most enormous “problem”, he’s very popular at the nightly orgies. The presence of Vicente’s prowess keeps the demon happy.
When the demon is happy, the bishops are happy. They shower Vicente with gifts and rich food. But it isn’t helping. He’s so tired of the constant overindulgence. Nothing will ever make him enjoy sex again. But little Fritz, with his red hair and clever Swiss ingenuity, has an extraordinary ability to accommodate Vicente. Could this be love?
Whether you've already read the entire Peter Schutes catalog, or you are just getting started, this book is essential reading. Some of the stories he tells will curl your toes, while others will leave you gasping for breath. You will agree "The Autobiography of Peter Schutes" is one of the steamiest memoirs ever written.
About Ancient Rome, Peter writes:
Ancient Roman Society was arranged in a hierarchy with Patricians at the top, Plebeians in the middle, and Slaves at the bottom. In between were Freed men, Soldiers and Women. No matter where you were situated on the societal ladder, the slave was the lowest. A slave was owned. His owner had great freedom to use the slave as he saw fit. There were laws that protected slaves from sheer brutality, but they were difficult to enforce, for a slave was not permitted to use the legal system. Slaves could be loaned, borrowed, or sold. If a slave were ever set free, he could never be a citizen, but he could enjoy most of the rights of the Plebeians as a Freed man.
A delicate boy like our hero is likely to fall to the lowest rank within slave society. He is not only slave to his owner, but to fellow slaves. His submissive nature leaves him vulnerable to the cruelty of the society around him. True love, a magical balm, seeks to right the imbalance and heal the scars that slavery has inflicted. Few in this world are lucky enough to find such love and remain scarred for life.
