Turpitude (A Harem Boy's Saga Book 4) Kindle Edition
5.0 out of 5 stars An Exotic~Erotic Life Described in Brilliant Rich Detail By PA Jiuditta on September 18, 2016 Format: Kindle Edition Close your eyes and imagine a world vibrant with color, a banquet for the senses, exotic, erotic, a sumptuous indulgence fulfilling your every desire. Imagine it draped in beauty: beautiful fabrics, opulent jewelry, romantic locales from around the world where whatever you desire can be yours if you are a beautiful boy. Do that and you have entered the world of Bernard Foong who has chronicled his life in a series of books titled A Harem Boy s Saga, an other-worldly lavish diary of a young boy indoctrinated into the world of a underground sexual society. As Westerners, we will be shocked by the revelations, the peek behind the secret veils, which would normally strike us as inappropriate, bordering abusive but quickly striped of our predisposed notions, we slip luxuriously into the world of lavish opulence and a love story of exciting proportions which is the author s life. A very accomplished and talented designer, Mr. Foong uses his complete design palette to describe his life in elegant, flowing words richly and artistically strung together like opulent jewels to describe the canvas of his life in rich, vibrant, magnificent palatable color. Oh, to have lived such a life. The sheer read of Turpitude, the fourth book in the series, is a spectacular indulgence in the series you dare not deny yourself. --Amazon Reviews
5.0 out of 5 stars A very special story By ocmd VINE VOICE on September 12, 2016 Format: Kindle Edition I devoured the first three books in the Harem Boy s Saga and eagerly awaited this fourth chapter. The beautifully written memoir is a very special narrative about the personal experiences of the author, a gay male trained to serve in a harem. He gives us a peek into a life very different from the mainstream and unknown to most of us. His descriptions of the exotic locations he s traveled add to the story. This is a long book, but I read it in record time and I can t wait for the next in the series. --Amazon Reviews --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Young is one such individual; a brave young man from Kuala Lumpur, who consciously opened the curtains to a harem life and willingly embraced it. In his unique and uncensored memoir A Harem Boy’s Saga, he stripped himself naked to those willing to see and read the structure of his muscula-ture—the bones of his thoughts, desires, emotions and carnal pleasures.
Turpitude is the fourth book in a series of seven volumes. Young withholds no secrets as he narrates his tale about his sexual and spiritual adventures with men throughout Europe, the Middle East and Asia in the late 1960s and 70s. Are the stories provocatively shocking? Yes! If you picture a young man's life differently; one who was initiated into a clandestine sexual society via his UK boarding school and trained to serve in Middle Eastern harems and to pleasure the wealthy and elite.
This book is also honest and worthy of respect because Young is never ashamed of his desires, needs and his unfading love for Andy, his 'Big Brother,' his 'Valet,' guardian and mentor; whom he corre-sponds presently where they reflect on the events of 45 years ago.
Young's writing is sensual, erotic and sophisticated. Even when he worships the male body and the carnal act, he does that with a gentlemanly approach. Hence his Turpitude experiences do not come across as pornographic or vulgar, but a testimony of a different lifestyle that is vastly different from the social norms which most westerners are not accustomed to. This life is abundantly rich with eve-rything: wealth, colors, smells, philosophy, spirituality, eroticism and of course, sex.
I'm sure Young expects his memoirs to be judged and criticized for his erotic, exotic adventures and experiences at the Assalamu Alaikum (Peace Be with You) Household. This young man soon rose to the rank of an assistant to the sheik's numerous international ventures. This too would be a controversy for die-hard representatives of Orthodox cultures.
Young iterated at the end of the book: For four years, unbeknownst to my family, I was willingly and happily part of a Harem. My story has been kept under wraps for close to 45 years. The correct mo-ment has arrived for me to make known my unique education. In his epilogue, the author wrote: Though these truths are often demonized by contemporary societies that deem such behaviors inap-propriate, the author hopes to dispel condemnation and negativity related to sexuality, love, and per-sonal freedom.
My final question would be: Who is pure enough to cast the first stone?
An intense and powerful story, driven by the factual remembrances of the author.
Provocative, moving and intense LGBT beautifully written as an autobiography.
Adult LGBT fare for the discriminating
