The King's Prize by Wayne Mansfield

Oh my goodness . . . bend me over and put a smile on my face because The King's Prize is a story that pushed all the right buttons for me! I strongly suspect I'll be seeking out the glorious Mr. Mansfield to see what else he has to offer very soon . . .

Here we have an alien fantasy world, one where homosexuality is not only accepted, it's embraced as the King's sexual expression of choice. When ape-like soldiers arrive at Pan's farm to claim him for the King's harem, there are the usual tears and sorrow over losing a son, but everybody is excited for Pan and the prestige his appointment will bring the family.

I loved the way in which the soldiers took advantage of Pan on their journey, taking their pleasure while preparing him for the King. No longer a virgin, gently loosened up, and accustomed to the taste of men, Pan comes before the King ready to win himself a place of honour. His scenes with the King were far more romantic than I expected, and incredibly sexy. Mansfield pays careful attention to the erotic details, giving us the sights, the smells, and the tastes of the harem.

The story does end rather abruptly, but on a happy note. I would love to see a sequel, or perhaps a novella length expansion of the story, but what is here works very well. I loved it . . . even if I was, perhaps, a little too guilty of sharing the harem's jealousy over Pan. He is one very lucky boy!


She-Male Seductions: The Complete Collection by Blake Worthington

She-Male Seductions is an all-in-one collection of Blake Worthington's previously published tales of She-Male Erotica. While the stories themselves are too short to allow for any real character development, and while he tends to skimp on the cosmetic details that tend to matter to queer readers, I suspect his target audience of bi-curious men will quite enjoy this.

From eager mattress salesmen to just as eager deliverymen, and from the very public setting of a part to the equally public setting of an airport, the stories here manage to embrace all the cliches and do something a bit different with them. Personally, I loved the balance of Blake's surprise revelations, with half the stories seeing the shemale surprise her lover with what she is packing, and half allowing the lover to surprise the shemale with the revelation that he already knows . . . and approves.

These are very sex-positive, gender-positive stories with even a hint of romance slipped in. There's no guilt, no shame, and no embarrassment involved. Everybody (including the reader) has fun, gets off, and heads home happier for the experience.

Straight To Cocks Volume 1 by Cora Adel

Collecting the first three "Turning Gay" stories, featuring super-hottie Billy Starr, Straight To Cocks Volume 1 is a such a fun read. These stories are firmly within the realm of fantasy, with straight-to-gay conversions that are just a tad too easy, but that's all part of the fantasy . . . and the fun.

The first story (Straight to Cocks) introduces us to Billy Star, professional Straight-To-Gay turn man . . . and let's be honest, if there is a dream job out there, Billy has got it! His lair is the town's hottest gay bar, and his window of opportunity is Ladies Night, when the straight boys come to take advantage of the drunk, easy women. Billy's prey this night is a buff bodybuilder by the name of Jim who, after a few too many drinks and shots, finds himself open to being turned. The dancefloor seduction is one of the hottest scenes I have ever read, especially once Bill pushes Jim to his knees and puts him to work, and their encounter inside a locked bathroom stall is glorious to behold.

The second story (Straight to Cocks 2) picks up the same story a few weeks later. Jim simply can't get Billy out of his mind, but the professional turn man isn't interested in a relationship - once he has turned a boy, he turns his back, interested only in the next conquest. Fortunately, Jim has a good friend and workout partner in Steve, the same guy who dragged him to the gay bar in the first place - and Billy can't resist the temptation to turn the pair of them! Here it is a steamy sauna scene that provides the climax, with Steve being taken by Billy from behind while Jim happily provides some oral stimulation. I absolutely adored the way in which Jim so quickly took to the taste of cock, and his addiction to cum is definitely something to which I can relate.

The final story (Billy Takes a Virgin) changes things up a bit, abandoning Jim and Steve for a new conquest. John is a nice-guy virgin who has just been dumped by yet another girlfriend because (ironically) he won't put out. Mind you, John is no sad, pasty little wimp - he's another buff, well-built man who has no trouble attracting the ladies . . . he just can't keep them. Enter Billy Star, a few drinks, and a frantic surrendering of John's virginity in the back of Billy's mustang. While not quite as hot as the first two stories, it's a bit more realistic, and John is probably a bit more identifiable for straight (or at least bi-curious readers).

I loved this collection. The writing was decent, the dialogue was strong, and the sex scenes were glorious. The tease-temptation-turn is played out very well, with enough variation in attitudes and responses to Billy's efforts to keep the stories fresh. Personally, I cannot wait to see who Billy turns next!

Making Mitzi by Andi Brightswan

OMG, this was such an amazing read - my only complaint is that it wasn't longer. I so loved what Princess Cassandra does with lovely Mitzi, especially with the escalation in his training at the end . . . but I so want to know more!

Making Mitzi is the story of a rich young woman with a fetish for bringing the strongest, the most powerful, and the most masculine of men to their knees. She is a Mistress of blackmail and psychological manipulation, able to transform her men into prancing little sissies. Mitchell is a high-rolling Executive, entirely too smug and confident in his superiority to everyone around him, but who becomes instantly smitten with the young woman he meets on the street.

All it takes is a little blackmail to ensure his initial obedience, and then Mitzi's training begins in earnest.

Andi demonstrates a true flair for feminization here, along with an honest passion for the look and feel of the most intimate of feminine garments. A good part of the early story is clothes-porn - which, as any good sissy will tell you, is the best kind of foreplay there is - but there are some very sexual elements later on that are a delight to experience. I loved the way Princess Cassandra used nothing more than a pillow and Mitzi's own imagination to train him in the art of kissing a man, and the scene where she trains him in the art of double-penetration, forcing him to hold a dildo in his mouth using nothing more than the power of his own lips and tongue, is breathtaking.

The humiliation of being taken shopping, leashed and extravagantly feminized, is conveyed very well, and the fear of serving at a party in his honour, dressed as the sexiest of french maids, is paired beautifully with Mitzi's overwhelming desire to please his Mistress.

A short read, but a hot one, I really do hope Andi gives us more soon!
