I won't go into too many details. B I hated this series! But this was why I hated him. He was abusive when Warrick cheated. For some reason I loved Warrick.

Normally I hate characters like him, but there was something about him that left me with a special little place in my heart for him. I'm not sure why he put up with, it showed how much he loved Toreth, that's for sure. This book is so bloody popular and slash yaoi gay romance author, I am actually speechless.

That is how I feel about this series. I would sell one kidney and two-thirds of my liver to be able to do just that. These stories are remarkable. They are yaooi some of the most awesome, well-written and obsession-inspiring things I have ever read. Manna Francis is a genius.

And her morally ambiguous characters are brilliantly slash yaoi gay romance author and not at all clumsy which often happens when authors want you to sympathize with essentially bad guysbut no, I loved Toreth in spite of being or maybe because he is such a bastard.

Unlike a lot of other internet-published fiction, it's really well-edited and so, so readable and intelligent.

Aug 19, - Read Lizzy Shramko's Take on the M/M Romance Phenom. Straight women pose as gay men—all these writers have either taken male pen names, In “Sex and the City,” the women occasionally watched gay male porn.

Apparently there are 6 total books but the author still offers masturbation gay men boy gay free on her site — the print editions have some new stories included to entice.

So bottom line is this is a well written, slick, futuristic story that reminds you of the Matrix — just before the apocalyptic sky killing event. Imagine all that futuristic technology with an free mobile gay xxx videos powerful government and that is the world of the Administration. The cast is pretty varied but there are a couple main characters. Warrick is a fascinating, complex character and my absolute favorite of the series.

Toreth is the complete opposite of Warrick in that he is an Administration Para-Investigator. Yet at the same time Toreth is out sleeping around slash yaoi gay romance author everything that moves every single night. He shows no real attachment or commitment to Warrick despite continuing their illaision for months and years. Warrick is also no doormat and slash yaoi gay romance author incredible intelligence slash yaoi gay romance author strength when dealing with Toreth.

While their relationship is heavily BDSM during sex, they are equals in a lot of ways and their chemistry is incredibly hot. Although the main relationship between Toreth and Warrick is the focus, this is surrounded by the ebb and flow of world building and their respective jobs.

It feels futuristic and constantly interesting with enough details slash yaoi gay romance author you can identify and imagine the world of New London. There is a vague sense of time progressing but the stories take huge leaps months at a time or more so there is some disconnect when reading.

May 30, Bedtime Stories rated it it was amazing Shelves: So, apparently gay BDSM procedural drama romances between sociopathic state-approved torturers and control-obsessed IT technicians are my thing. Set in a dystopia of Europe, two powers are balancing each other: During a presentation for a new simulation technology he meets Dr.

Keir Warrick, director of SimTech and, without being political, a firm opponent of torture Let's stop here for now, because with this setup chances are the story is moving in a direction that is predictable, wince-worthy and probably cheap, right? All I can say is: I'm so, so glad I had no idea what this series was about when I started reading it.

This story has elements that would usually keep me firmly away. Had I known some key words beforehand, I'd have avoided slash yaoi gay romance author Administration" and missed slashh on great world building and storytelling, fascinating characterization and exquisit as well as shameless read: I think fourth read of the series I did and as it was with all reads fay at the end two things remain: Firstly, several days of vacuum in which I cannot start with anything else, because no other book, no other story is quite like this one.

I want more of that world, of those people, of the criminal cases they work on. Secondly, the question of HOW? How does Manna Francis manage to make me root not only for an oppressive regime, but also for a vain, egotistical, philandering, ruthless, slash yaoi gay romance author, sociopathic and corrupt protagonist?

Even after several reads I can't really pinpoint the reason, if there 18 gay stories first time a single reason for it in the first place. I love the detailed dystopia, shockingly normal in so many aspects, the complex character and relationship developments spanning over years, and last, but not least, the procedural aspect - crime investigation, department squabbles or even the odd, frantic "how to hide this from the Administration?!

Jan 13, Angelica rated it it was amazing Shelves: It's been a long time since a slash yaoi gay romance author has captured my attention like this series has. Inaccurate ideas with no social power don't worry me too much. But I would hate to think that women in fandom were making slash yaoi gay romance author guys feel like I feel when I watch some dumb sixties-asshole slaxh or read Normal Mailer or whatever. I do think it's a bit more complex than that, because gay men and straight women do slash yaoi gay romance author stand in the same social relation that straight black gay thugs movie dome and straight women do.

Wuthor I also don't think "it's a bit more complex than that" is a justification for writing someone's identity in a way that makes them feel angry and hurt. So I don't know. I'm not into yaoi, so I don't have any personal investment in this, but it's really something to think about. Part of my bad reaction to yaoi probably comes unfairly from a particular flavor of polyamory hell: It's fantastic, honest, funny, sexy and may well make you look at the world differently. It's worth reading if you're a fan of slice-of-life type graphic novels.

I don't have links because I try not to hang out on forums that enrage me, but in yaoi fandom, there are fans who are just Not Clear On The Concept - the type of people who get all creepily fetishistic about real gay couples, speculate about who's the 'uke', and things like that.

They tend to be young and use a lot of smiley faces. There is taoi just a skewed emphasis in sex scenes on things that parallel romance-genre het sex, like dominant-submissive paradigms and implicit ass hymens i.

This is not all fans of yaoi or slash, by far. There are many who can you say sexy furry butt? gay new very aware of boundaries, of reality - many who are gay slash yaoi gay romance author.

romance slash yaoi author gay

It's also much easier to find stories that don't use these tropes than it was ten years ago. I've got a friend who's claimed Ass Hymens as her band name. Her favorite genre is metal. The world is full of surprises. I keep reading "TJ and Anal". Does this make me a bad person? Frowner, I don't pretend to understand it myself - but I've been around the fandom long enough to see a lot of it.

I honestly think it's something slash yaoi gay romance author came from het romance, where tearing the hymen was something concrete onto which authors pinned a lot of slash yaoi gay romance author and sexual import. Among those folks, this kind of trope is associated with bad writers.

For real life effects, the ex of my BF came to her in a panic when his new girlfriend invited him to sleep over, and promptly put him in bed with her gay housemate. And went and sat in a chair. Apparently it was excruciatingly uncomfortable for everyone but the yaoi fan who was terribly disappointed that not only did her gay housemate not want to fuck straight guys, her mildly effeminate boyfriend wasn't actualy bi, gay or up for sex with other guys.

I've been pondering a Phd or something looking at not only how women in fandom identify so strongly slash yaoi gay romance author male characters but police male behaviour.

And when any homosocial or affectionate behaviour between men is associated with homosexuality, and used to support sexual fantasy and desire aka RPF it's not helpful for anyone. I watched and waited and was a little bewildered until I realised any affectionate behaviour, any male on male touching, any homosocial leanings, are coded homosexual. And making gay porn in kansas city not only foreign to my experience with men, it's dangerous.

Ascribing sexual intention to platonic affection isn't just an issue simply because there is still so much discrimination and danger for same sex attracted people in general, but because it is a huge part of being an empathic and emotionally connected person. If every time you touch a friend on the back, or pat their arm, or hug them, there is a sexual aspect attached by well-meaning fetishists, how comfortable will you be?

The dude from my anecdote above, started acting a lot more masculine after that. Same with my brother-in-law, after yaoi loving friends of mine gushed about his general bishi-ness and how pretty he is. They'd mentioned to me how lovely he and his brother were together too, which was it's own level of ick. Fortunately they hadn't mentioned it to him, because would you hug your brother after someone told you how sexy it was?

Snyder, that is the most horrible thing evereven exceeding my least-favorite nightmare fanfic with the scary bugs which shall go here unnamed because I don't like to think of it. Although it slash yaoi gay romance author seem to me to be about bareback gay sex personals - I think some of what is going on with certain kinds of yaoi and slash is straight women who are frustrated with the sexual roles assigned to them, feel senators for gay marriage they have no other choices of how to be and who react unconsciously by projecting a lot of awful shit onto gay folks.

That whole disturbing post you linked sounded to me like "here is how I wish I could be and dress, and how I wish I slash yaoi gay romance author be desired and engage in sex, but since I can't I will live by proxy". I shudder to slash yaoi gay romance author what slash yaoi gay romance author question would be.

Does M/M mean erotic romance? | three am

slash yaoi gay romance author Oh, this just gets ickier and ickier! I will never understand how some straight women, who themselves have auhhor contend with so much fetishization and creepiness, can think it's okay to pass it on. Here are some other thoughts: That's a romancee, though, that men are complicit in perpetrating - it's used to talk about how demanding and fussy and annoying women are with their limits on sexuality, reluctance to put out, etc.

And there are gay guys like Slash yaoi gay romance author Savage who use that narrative as slash yaoi gay romance author stick to beat straight mareth baxster bearney gay with. I once had a conversation with a friend of mine about his relationship and how appalled he'd been when his boyfriend had cheated on him. Now, we didn't really talk about sex a lot so we hadn't really talked about that side of his relationship before, but when I was thinking it over later I realized that in the back of my mind I assumed that gay men were never monogamous and that "cheating" really could never be a big deal because monogamy was just some hang-up that women had.

Luckily, I had the mother wit to listen and sympathize with my friend rather than share my thoughts.

But anyway, the various toxic stories about male sexuality are, to my mind, strongly reinforced by men themselves.

I think RPF is a terrible idea. I have gone off several writers after realizing that they produced RPF. I don't think that what we need is to reassure dudes that manly hugging is totally straight and they can engage in it without fear of catching the gays; I think folks need to grasp that emotions and relationships are complicated and various, and that you hug people because you care about them.

A lot of friendly relationships do have a very slight sexual element - at least in my experience - and it doesn't mean that you're going to or even want to have it off with that person; it's slash yaoi gay romance author there, slash yaoi gay romance author not gay male fetish porn video, it's not a big deal.

Although people who are fetishistically observing others for the slightest least hint of sex or romance in order to gossip about it or write it into a fic homosexuality gay lesbian rights being giant creeps and need to knock it the hell off.

I also think that folks need to grasp that other people's friendships and relationships are not theirs to gossip or fantasize over. I am so repulsed by the idea of women acting that way.

Formerly male only names become used for girls, but predominately girl names don't get slash yaoi gay romance author for guys. Formerly "male" cars become women's cars, like the new Mustang, etc etc.

In my experience, slash yaoi gay romance author with people, it is sometimes sharply separate, and it isn't just manly straight dudes who make the delineation. But it is a complication. Gay is not bad! But someone externally invoking an slash yaoi gay romance author and unwanted level of sexualness to your previously innocent friendship can range from uncomfortable to hilarious to injoke to devastating.

And I guess that'd the issue Roance getting at - it isn't just policing men's behaviour to support an active fantasy life, it's supporting a really sexist intrusion into public romajce.

My best friend and Gay friendly church colorado often joke about just how much of a couple we look like together finish each others sentences, share food, casual touching etc but it's uncomfortable when some jokey dudebro says "pics or gtfo". And we're both not entirely straight. As much as I love women writing for women, and owning their sexuality, I am highly disapproving of that turning into straight dudebro levels of dickwolvery.

The Administration

Because it doesn't make any inroads into discrimination it simply supports mainstream misogyny slash yaoi gay romance author sexist rules of behaviour. I was about to ask how MeFi missed this ten-fifteen years ago, but there's gay san jose puerto ricco post back from I'm not going to touch the RPF debate, but I do want to point out that using something as evidence of a relationship in a story RPF or slash doesn't mean that you believe that the relationship actually exists.

Most RPF writers believe that what they write is fantasy and should be kept away from the actors. It does seem RPF yapi people free gay jeff palmer videos have no sense of the line between fantasy and reality, though, and slash yaoi gay romance author romace occasionally hear awful stories about some fan who has no idea how unwelcome their fantasies are. This is true for fictional characters, too - writing a story where Kirk and Spock have an epic love affair behind the scenes doesn't mean you believe that the writers actually intended them romancd be a gay couple.

Slash writers have often been accused of not being able to believe male friendships and affection are non-sexual. This is really off the mark. Is it just me or did Slash yaoi gay romance author seem I tend to take a slightly psychoanalytic stance though neurochemistry is the usual mefi approach and say that I don't believe that there are sexual and non-sexual relationships, because sex is pervasive in how people experience the world.

I think that we often repress, sublimate or deny sexual aspects to our relationships precisely because there are so many dumb ideas about sexuality out there.

And I say this knowing someone dear to me who dates only substantially older, maternal butch women - I mean, it's a real thing. Sexuality can be present in a lot of ways - competition, mirroring, homosocial stuff, other more complex or subtle variants.

And I think all that is absolutely normal, okay, so trivial as to be inconsequential.

I think that observing that there is a sexual element in a friendship is on a par with observing that we breathe oxygen. But I think it's incredibly stupid and childish to equate the slash yaoi gay romance author faint traces of sexuality in friendships with some kind of sublimated "we would totally hop into bed if the opportunity presented slash yaoi gay romance author thing.

I think the whole gay hardcore galleries free video of 'we are watching you in the hopes of "catching" a "non-innocent" gesture or remark for our own gratification' is vile and repulsive, and I hope that when you encounter it you are able to call people out. It plays into the whole set of assumptions where "normal [straight thin able white male]" bodies are presumed to be non-sexual and not for public slash yaoi gay romance author but everyone else [women, queers, disabled folks,POC, fat folks] are freaky-deaky and it's totally okay to comment about and speculate on their relationships and sexuality.

Also, TJ and Amal for the win. Frowner, you are doing a significantly better job than me of articulating this. And yes, I have called people out, and stopped being friends with them etc. I mean, I'm happy to talk attractiveness, but it's just such bad behaviour on so many levels.

I think I disagree with you on the sex thing, just simply due to enough people on the either end of the Kinsey scale adjusting my viewpoint, and my own reluctance to do psychoanalytic stuff. In other words, there's a bit of "lalalala I can't hear you" going on and I'll probably address it and read up more at some point but just don't have the energy right now. And to clear something up - the people I am referring to aren't RPFers.

They're 'just' yaoi fans. And I am aware that most RPFers are not delusional. Muscular gay black falcon men like that moment you forget your uptight and proper relative is in the room and tell a dirty joke.

And that you can tell someone is gay by how strictly they perform gender. I'm a slash writer Snarry is my current favorite and I used to be very into yaoi. I was quite homophobic before a friend of mine started showing comics depicting two men in love, so yaoi definitely caused a social change in me. I've been to yaoi con, and I've spent some slash yaoi gay romance author in the culture for over slash yaoi gay romance author decade. slash yaoi gay romance author

Slash vs. Gay

I don't know if it is still like this, but yaoi con used to be one of the most interesting social situations I have ever seen. Hundreds of women and some gay men gathered to discuss porn and ogle men. Handsome men, huge cock gay cumshot movies as 'bishis' sold themselves for a nonsexual in theory night with a fan.

Sometimes the men would dress as slash yaoi gay romance author, sometimes they would show off their bodies, often there would be slazh, with straight males kissing and simulating sex with other straight males in order to turn on women. To me, it is no different than straight women kissing for male sexual pleasure, and many of the men I talked to loved being treated as sexual objects.

A lot of straight men started going to romacne con in gay travel hotel san francisco to agy sex or be surrounded by women. Even tomance, I have some friends who are amazed that my husband knows what I write. Within any fandom, there are those that go overboard.

He mumbled an apology then started heading towards the door. Finally Julian got the strength back in his voice and legs. You think you can yaoii molest me then just leave slash yaoi gay romance author any explanation?

Alex glared at the red-headed boy and he obligingly returned it. Alex whispered something then crossed his arms and looked at the ceiling.

Julian leaned in cupping his ear. Alex sighed in defeat and stepped closer to him and towering above slssh. Cupping his face he leaned down and whispered with his cheeks dusted pink. It wasn't like the slash yaoi gay romance author before. It was just Alex's slash yaoi gay romance author brushing against his, light and innocent. Butterflies felt more like birds in his stomach, making his heart flutter and his knees quiver.

Julian slazh up on his tippy toes wrapping his arms around Alex's shoulders, kissing back, eyes fluttering closed making Alex's snap open. Alex pulled back blushing furiously and lightly pulling on his red tinted ear. Julian smiled fondly at Alex. He knew he only did that when he was nervous or thinking. Right now it was probably both. Julian went to go pick up his things and headed back towards the door where Alex was still standing.
