About the Book
This book is the result of ten years of trying to get laid. As a journalist, I'm interested in the variegate forms this pursuit can take in a city the size and scope of Manhattan. I've included stories I've written for The Village Voice, New York Press and Frontiers on down-low gay Guidos, homo biker gangs, queer feeding fetishes and 3D gay porn. I've also profiled various people who are driving sexual practice forward like Bruce LaBruce, Amanda Lepore, Diamanda Galas and Peter Berlin. Other chapters include profiles on Christine Jorgensen, Camille Paglia, ChiChi LaRue, Merce Cunningham, Matthew Bourne Peter Rauhofer, Patti Smith and Antony Hegarty.
