I Like it Like That: True Stories of Gay Male Desire by Richard Labonte & Lawrence Schimel

2009, paperback

From the editors of the Lambda Award-winning First Person Queer come these intelligent, sexy, true-life tales of gay men's desire. The stories push at the parameters of queer erotic life, featuring contributors both novice and well-known; subject matter ranges from single, significant encounters to the ephemera of emotional desires that never lead to physical pleasure. Throughout, the book deals with the essential erotics of queer male life, to be used as a launching point for exploring the queer male condition: essays that delve into the diverse manifestations of desire between and among men.

I Like It Like That features smart, savvy writing about desire and sex. Unlike mainstream porn imagery that by default dominates our cultural (and therefore personal) references, contributors reach into the far reaches of memory to tell true tales about personal erotic space.

Contributors include Paul Bellini, Steven Bereznai, S. Bear Bergman, Daniel Allen Cox, Jameson Currier, Viet Dinh, Larry Duplechan, Daniel Gawthrop, Sky Gilbert, Aaron Hamburger, Shaun Levin, Steve MacIsaac, Tim Miller, Andy Quan, and Shawn Syms.
