Kevin Killian on the Hot-and-Sweaty Huddle

e5saNlBnIYKVCMfVcKj9wTJQpbYU2w4EUYByW8KGl04So, did we ever tell you what the amazing Kevin Killian told Angela Tavares about her hot collection, Huddle: Sex with Sporty Queers? He said (*clears throat*) “I enjoyed it thoroughly!”

Thoroughly, I tell you!

Kevin Killian, reading your praise made our jock straps kinda sweaty.

Speaking of perspiration, Huddle, if you haven’t heard, is a collection of erotic stories by Dario Dalla Lasta, Benji Bright, Tamsin Flowers, Theophilia St. Claire, and Christopher Stoddard. In this don’t-show-your-grandma-unless-she’s-into-it tome, the sports field gets sweaty, the cloakrooms get even sweatier, and the boy-on-boy bodies, well, they’re the sweatiest yet. I’m proud of Angela’s collection, and the stories by these bold and bitchin’ authors, because they’re not afraid to enjoy sex to the full — and feel it honestly and hotly on the page.

Now, I told you that to tell you this: GDP author Jacob Louder is currently completing his final draft of a novella called First. First isn’t your usual erotica. And if you get upset about Nabakov’s Lolita, stop reading now. Because First follows the hot exploits of Nico Ericsson, a 14-year old queer with a passion for teens of all genders, including Robbie and his acceptance of his genderqueer identity, Hannah with her incredible — oh God — incredible mouth, and a whole lot of others.

Because teenagers have sex. And we all know it. What’s more, powerful authors, like Dennis Cooper for instance, show us this, time and again. And teen sex is not only some of the hottest sex possible — it is also the sex where we’re often finding ourselves, accepting ourselves, challenging ourselves, expressing ourselves. Whether solo or partnered, teen sex is the place where our sexual bodies are born, where we are told we are shameful but explore it all anyway, where our inner heroes are born and raised, where many of us give the finger to what we’re told to be.

Yes, teenagers have sex. With themselves, with teens, and sometimes with adults. And as an anti-censorship publisher who is fed up of being told we can’t write about certain kinds of humanity, we couldn’t be more excited about Jacob’s First.

Now, Jacob won’t tell you this, but I can: It’s beautiful. And hot. And it’s told from the heart and loins.

Huddle Author Stats and Facts: Dario Dalla Lasta

And our tour of the authors of the astoundingly hot and totally fruity stories in Huddle: Sex With Sporty Queers ends today with Dario Dalla Lasta. Quick note on Dario and “Game Set Match”: While reviewing Huddle’s submissions, I got to Page 2 of Dario’s story, thought, “Wait–who the fuck wrote this?” and then swore to myself that if I had to sell my ovaries to secure his story for Huddle, I would do it. I love it so much. Dario is a master of language, and can paint the prettiest pictures of boys having it off. Download Huddle for free to find out for yourself just how masterful he is.

Your position: Front and center, while skewed a little to the left.

Your favorite sport:  Tennis, of course! I grew up with my father watching Wimbledon and the U.S. Open with rabid intensity while teaching me the basics of the game at a local tennis court. Back then, I was in love with Bjorn Borg and thought Jimmy Connors + Chris Evert = 4ever. Although I hadn’t been on the courts in twentysomething years, writing “Game Set Match” brought me back. When the opportunity to actually play tennis came up last month on vacation, I jumped at the chance. While my serve is definitely rusty, please take note that I slaughtered my opponent (my poor husband) with a sweet score of 6-1. Game Set Match indeed.

Your favorite place to write:  I tend to write the most during stolen moments at work, but love to revise at home on the couch with my dog snuggled next to me, listening to classical music.

Your favorite character in “Huddle” and why:  My favorite character has to be Trace Petrucco. He’s not me, per se, but he’s got lots of my quirks and insecurities, especially when I was younger and less experienced.  Plus, he’s blessed with long blond hair, and mismatched green and blue eyes.  I have DREAMS that I look like that!  Oh yeah, and he’s got a nice dick, too.

Your definition of queer:  The word “queer” to me encompasses all groups in the sexual LGBTQI rainbow. And that’s a lot of lovely folks up in there. But even more than that, queer is a state of mind, a stance, a mindset, a belief system, and an all-inclusive love of everything and everyone that is different and special and unique and nonjudgmental. I find it fascinating how “queer” used to be a hateful term and now it’s just flat-out cool. Basically, all of my friends are queer. If you knew them, you’d see that they are made up of every stripe and color and creed and sexuality imaginable.

Your first moment realizing that you write sex really well:  When I wrote an erotic short story on one of my college breaks. This wasn’t for a class assignment, I just had a rush of sexual energy and imagination that I needed to release and put down on paper. Then, to top it all off, I decided to mail copies out to a select group of college friends in plain brown envelopes with no return address. I mean, how sleazy is that? I’m sure it was horribly written, but I didn’t care because there was a scorching-hot gay sex scene that I was proud of. Once the truth came out, my friends blushed and told me of their profound embarrassment. I liked that reaction. Even though I didn’t write any fiction again until a few years ago, when I eventually started back up, all I wanted to write about was sex. I still do. In fact, I don’t think I can write anything without including lots o’ sex! Must be in my blood.
