Best Black Gay Erotica celebrates the heat and power of sex between black men: the ardent, gorgeous thugs, the worshippers of heavenly ass and cock, and the devoutly religious in their forays through the subterranean grottoes of the down-low world. From the slowly building heat of Reginald Harris’s “The Gift”to the raw lust of Belasco’s graphic portrayals of man-on-man sex, these are stories that push back at the reader, that arouse and confront. Includes stories by James Earl Hardy, Samuel R. Delany, Thomas Galve, Robert Reid-Pharr and Shane Allison.
“Expect to burn yourself on this superhot collection culled by San Francisco writer and … professor Scott … James Earl Hardy kicks off the collection with a poetic lust jam … The remaining 17 stories are, in wonderful ways, all over the map. In “Stank,” Domingo Rhodes tells of nasty-naughty lust in a college dorm room, while Samuel R. Delany’s “The Sleepwalkers”is a crisp and clear paean to the days of late-night club bacchanalia in pre-AIDS New York City.”

“While some erotica publishing houses are drifting away, with others burying themselves deeper in what is loosely termed ‘erotic romances,’ Cleis Press continues steadily to issue books which are both physically attractive and cutting-edge sharp. A good case in point … is Best Black Gay Erotica, edited by Darieck Scott … Scott has assembled an impressive anthology.”
