Download and read online Straight Man in PDF and EPUB Hank Devereaux is the reluctant chairman of the English department of a badly underfunded college in the Pennsylvania rust belt. Devereaux's reluctance is partly rooted in his character - he is a born anarchist - and partly in the fact that his department is savagely divided. In the course of a single week, Devereaux will have his nose mangled by an angry colleague, imagine his wife is having an affair with his dean, wonder if a curvaceous adjunct is trying to seduce him with peach pits and threaten to execute a goose on local television. All this while coming to terms with his philandering father, the dereliction of his youthful promise and the ominous failure of certain vital body functions. In short, Straight Man is classic Russo - side-splitting, poignant, compassionate and unforgettable.

American actor John Kaiser lives in London where he’s found fame as a television celebrity and theatrical star. He unwittingly falls in love with Brian Mallory, a reclusive Scottish millionaire who takes refuge in his London penthouse once a year to conduct business. Brian sees John as a shy, nervous, and clumsy new friend, but John hopes they’ll be much more than just friends—until he learns of a love rival: curvaceous, blonde, and sexy Carol Lexington. He’s devastated when he realizes he can’t compete with this beautiful woman. Or can he? And even if he could win Brian’s love, what other forces would lie in wait to tear them apart? From the ritzy charity galas of London’s elite to an English countryside manor and a stunning, riverfront luxury penthouse, this love story takes you on a journey of humor, happiness, pain, jealousy, and shocking betrayal. Filled with quirky best friends, catastrophic events, and undying love and devotion, it’s the story of a straight man who falls in love with a gay man who did everything wrong and still got everything right. Straight Man Gay does what Giovanni’s Room and Brokeback Mountain couldn’t: It takes the shame out of being gay and in love.

Download and read online You ve Got The Balls Use Them in PDF and EPUB Where is the Man's Man? Where is the masculine idol that exudes sexuality, personality and charm? "You've Got The Balls, Use Them!: Rules For Straight Men" is a call to arms for a society of the PC sensitive male to return the roots of a real man. Take charge of your life and play your own game in heterosexual relationships.

It connects to all men who have played the role of the gentle, sensitive man, only to be left for another man who treats women like trash. The overall essence of "You've Got The Balls, Use Them!" is to enjoy the hunt and move on, there is no point to be under someone else's power. Be respectful, be a gentleman, but don't be the whipping boy. Steven Clark draws lessons from his life as an entrepreneur, venture capitalist and world traveler. He has raised two sons of his own under his philosophy. This book was originally created from the advice that he gave his sons as teenagers. Now he offers it to what he feels is a world of declining masculinity.

Successful multimillionaire Brian Mallory has acquired a fabulous new boyfriend, television star John Kaiser. He’s also acquired an entire “family” of colorful characters that has turned his lonely, monotonous life into one surprising misadventure after another. From a flatulating, one-eyed Chihuahua to a pink-tutu’d elf who can’t keep his clothes on, the extended Mallory household has more than its share of oddness and eccentricities that keep Brian on his toes. But as Brian and John begin building a future together, can John stop worrying that Brian might leave him for a woman, or for other reasons? Will Brian’s arrogance help him or hinder him as he encounters awkward social situations he’d never experienced as a straight man? And the big question: How will Brian’s business associates, old friends and family handle his new orientation? Even if both men can overcome their personal obstacles to achieve a long-lasting relationship, will someone (or something) create a tragedy that puts the true meaning of “undying love and devotion” to the ultimate test? Straight Man Gay Two invites you to once again join Brian and John on their humorous, adventurous and sometimes sad journey of falling in love with the wrong person who turns out to be the right person.

Download and read online Not Gay in PDF and EPUB A straight white girl can kiss a girl, like it, and still call herself straight—her boyfriend may even encourage her. But can straight white guys experience the same easy sexual fluidity, or would kissing a guy just mean that they are really gay? Not Gay thrusts deep into a world where straight guy-on-guy action is not a myth but a reality: there’s fraternity and military hazing rituals, where new recruits are made to grab each other’s penises and stick fingers up their fellow members’ anuses; online personal ads, where straight men seek other straight men to masturbate with; and, last but not least, the long and clandestine history of straight men frequenting public restrooms for sexual encounters with other men. For Jane Ward, these sexual practices reveal a unique social space where straight white men can—and do—have sex with other straight white men; in fact, she argues, to do so reaffirms rather than challenges their gender and racial identity. Ward illustrates that sex between straight white men allows them to leverage whiteness and masculinity to authenticate their heterosexuality in the context of sex with men. By understanding their same-sex sexual practice as meaningless, accidental, or even necessary, straight white men can perform homosexual contact in heterosexual ways. These sex acts are not slippages into a queer way of being or expressions of a desired but unarticulated gay identity. Instead, Ward argues, they reveal the fluidity and complexity that characterizes all human sexual desire. In the end, Ward’s analysis offers a new way to think about heterosexuality—not as the opposite or absence of homosexuality, but as its own unique mode of engaging in homosexual sex, a mode characterized by pretense, dis-identification and racial and heterosexual privilege. Daring, insightful, and brimming with wit, Not Gay is a fascinating new take on the complexities of heterosexuality in the modern era.

Download and read online The Velvet Rage in PDF and EPUB Today's gay man enjoys unprecedented, hard-won social acceptance. Despite this victory, however, serious problems still exist. Substance abuse, depression, suicide, and sex addiction among gay men are at an all-time high, causing many to ask, "Are we really better off?" Drawing on contemporary research, psychologist Alan Downs's own struggle with shame and anger, and stories from his patients, The Velvet Rage passionately describes the stages of a gay man's journey out of shame and offers practical and inspired strategies to stop the cycle of avoidance and self-defeating behavior. Updated to reflect the effects of the many recent social, cultural, and political changes, The Velvet Rage is an empowering book that has already changed the public discourse on gay culture and helped shape the identity of an entire generation of gay men.
