About Peter Schutes
Peter Schutes (1896-1981) was a gay icon. He served as an infantryman in France during World War I. Long before France he was introduced to an alternate lifestyle that matched his natural proclivities. His predilections caused him to be ejected from the service at the end of his tour of duty and incarcerated in a mental hospital. The experience left scars that took years to heal. In order to earn his freedom, he feigned a miracle recovery, professing his love for women.
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.
This early (1961) masterpiece by Peter Schutes is one of his finest works of literature, and one of the raunchiest. The story reads like a romance, but the novel itself is pure smut. Shocking for the era in which it was written, the book was banned in the US until the Supreme Court widened its definition of acceptable art. This book is a work of art in every way.
The narrator, Brightie, is a naive young clown. When he meets Cody, the bull rider who makes his heart jump, together they descend into an underground network of sex, domination, and drugs, cushioned only by their mutual love. From motel rooms in Wyoming to bathhouses in Peru, the pair discover the joys of sex without bounds.
Cody struggles to keep his past buried. His colossal endowment harbors a dark secret. When Brightie stumbles into that secret, he is nearly destroyed by it. Only love, patience, and a high tolerance for pain can save the tender relationship these two have forged from bull sweat and arena dust.
This work of erotic fiction was written by the author in the mid-1960s. Themes of drugs, phallic worship and sado-masochism were common in all his works, but Dark As A Dungeon was one of his strongest examples of phallic extremes and torture. Peter himself had a reputation for being extraordinarily well endowed. We believe that Shorty McCool, the first person narrator with the impossibly large penis, is an extension of Peter’s psyche. Shorty’s extraordinary tastes and dangerous desires, as well as his ultimate desire for a loving mate may well reflect the desires of the author himself.
Written long before such prose was legal in the United States, this novel boldly exposes gay male carnal desires in an unapologetic pornographic setting. This was among the first novels written by Peter Schutes.
About 'Bunkhouse Buddies', Peter writes in 1961:
It’s no secret that many men became cowboys because they preferred the company and camaraderie of other rough and tumble men to the gentler life with women. These cowboys lived in groups of six to ten in bunkhouses - housing provided by the ranch owner at no cost or at the cost of lower wages. The function of a traditional bunkhouse was to give a young cowboy an opportunity to find his footing and save money before he settled down and married. Not every cowboy had those particular plans. Many just wanted to be around other cowboys like themselves, confirmed bachelors. Buried deep in the Big Hole River Valley of Montana, the Cock Crow Ranch bunkhouse was entirely made up of lifelong bachelors. When a new cowboy came along, it was never certain if he would “fit in” with the bachelor lifestyle or if he was going to have to find a new ranch with morals more in line with his own. A good fit was rare, but when that cowboy came along, he got to share in a brotherhood unlike any other.
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 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?
Like the title suggests, there are five stories in this collection.
This is one of several works of short erotic fiction written by Peter in the 1970s that had been lost to time. PS Publishers stumbled across it in a filing cabinet reserved for taxes. This story is set in the burgeoning bodybuilder community that became the center of a movement. Extreme size becomes a burden rather than a blessing. Peter suffered from the same problems of over-endowment as the hero of this story, Taryn Rearden.
Here was another story found among the files of unpublished works of Peter Schutes. Peter left a handwritten note stapled to the manuscript. It read, “Like my Panama novel, this story is told primarily from the point of view of a man with a very small appendage. I often fantasized what it would be like to be small like Jeffrey. I have known very few men with small endowments. They are just as rare as the horse hung. Just like I felt with my unwieldy monster, they have all said that they saw their tiny penis as a curse for years. It wasn’t until they discovered that with many men, opposites attract. By embracing their femininity, rather than yearning for masculinity, they became a coveted sexual partner. I have a much harder time finding someone to top me than do they. "
Of this novella, Peter wrote: “KwikLube 5000 was my first attempt at portraying the San Fernando Valley, the capital of pornography and bleach blond hair. The Valley is an enigmatic place. There is no “there” there, as Gertrude Stein would say. It’s just an endless expanse of ugly signs and drive-thru businesses. Nobody leaves his or her car, which is why KwikLube 5000 was such a success. The driver could stay in the car and read the Los Angeles Times while mechanics fiddled with the car one story down. Despite my disparaging words, the Valley is actually dear to my heart. The bathhouses there have the most handsome men, who are much more receptive to an old, well-hung fart like me.”
This work of short erotic fiction is another that was found in the tax filing cabinet of Peter Schutes. It features the re-appearance by Shamus Little, the short body builder with a big rear and a tiny endowment. He built his body for one purpose, and he never fails to amaze. Tasked with doing “whatever it takes” to bring down a drug ring in Venice, California, two cops discover just how close they have become. Both reveal hidden secrets about their friendship and their anatomy.
This story is one of the last written by Peter before his death in 1981 at the age of 85 years old. It is set in his adopted city, Los Angeles, in the present, which was 1980. The language and expressions are modern. The story deals with modern themes, like sexual hypnosis, exercise and fitness, and the cult of body worship that became synonymous with the 1980’s in the wake of Olivia Newton John’s “Physical.” It is a testament to his skill as a writer that he captured this moment in time so precisely.
To the average man, penis size may not seem like a big deal. To those who are at the extremes (tiny, huge) it is an all-encompassing obsession. Many men with extremely small penises believe they are unable to perform the duties expected of them. When they discover that there’s something between their butt cheeks that attracts men like flies to honey, they get the added bonus of appreciation. The biggest tend to be drawn to the smallest. Our protagonist Bob was deeply ashamed of his size until he discovered French Active and Passive Greek. Suddenly, both his holes were sources of extreme pleasure.
Similarly, men like Jed with too much between their legs are ashamed when women reject them. They all say they want a big one, but when it’s a monster, they turn tail and run. His wife left him with blue balls every night. When Jed discovered Bob’s natural talents for stretching and accommodating, he truly found paradise.
Most men claim they would love to possess a massive cock. If they knew how lonely they would become, they might just remain happy to be somewhere in the middle. Bob was unique: he understood and got over his shame to be so tiny. His weightlifting skills made him a natural for taking the very biggest. He knew how to switch off pain and supplant it with pleasure. He was proud to be tiny down there. Jed, too, outgrew his shame and humiliation once he found the perfect fit.
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.
