Product Description

Review

"Confirms all your worst fears about homos in the military. They have sex! Really horny sex. With straight soldiers. The bastards." - Mark Simpson, author of The Queen Is Dead; "These stories are hotter than any fiction because they are so thrillingly, achingly real. In this post-modern era of digital enhancement...authenticity is something that you can never put your hand around." - Steven Zeeland; "Outstanding...A deeper read than the simple stroke book, one that's bound to stay with the reader a long time." - Playguy

Format: Paperback
This book may not be for those who prefer paint-by-number porn fantasies about seamen and admirals frigging in the rigging under fire during a typhoon with more dirty talk adjectives on one page than Jeff Stryker has uttered in his entire career. (There are hundreds of books in that genre, the Boyd McDonald series still being the best of them.) What this book does offer are honest stories of real-life military guys having sex in the barracks, in a Navy chapel, on a Camp Pendleton tank trail -- and in some other even more dangerous places. In "Semen in a Bullet" a gay Army Ranger has sex in a straight soldier's mobile home -- with his buddy's wife visible through the cracked bedroom door. I like how the sex stories are told in the way military men actually talk. The book does tease quite a bit, but to me that makes the explicit details all that much more...effective. Oh yeah -- and the pictures are pretty hot, too.

HASH(0x9e0e7708) out of 5 stars "I Wish I Remembered Nights........................ 12 Jun. 2001
By Joseph J. Hanssen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I wish I remembered nights in the barracks like these 16 true-life military stories relate. Alex Buchman presents us with authentic accounts of sex in the Armed Forces. These are stories the military doesn't want told. There are no gay men in the military and there's no gay sex, they want us to believe. They want us to think that young military men have no sexual desires. Well, this book is a welcome relief. Young military men do have sexual desires, and emotions, whether they straight or gay. All of these gay sexual encounters by military men are hotter than any fiction put out because they are real-life accounts. This isn't just an erotic, sexually explicit collection of stories, it's a thought-provoking history of real life while in the military.
I enjoyed all of the 16 stories included in this collection. I think Alex provided us with a great group of contributors for this book. There's a brief biography of all the contributors in the back of the book, which is very helpful in knowing a little about each author. There's a enlightening introduction by none other than Steve Zeeland, the author of several military sexual interview books that include "Barrack Buddies", "Sailors and Sexual Identity", and "The Masculine Marine." These stories will leave you eager for more. I know I look forward to future editions by Buchman. Another great volume of gay military stories & studies put out by Harrington Park Press. Be sure and check this book out, highly recommended!

HASH(0x9e0e760c) out of 5 stars Fact that's hotter than fiction 28 Jan. 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Anyone whose tastes are enticed by graphic descriptions of same-sex encounters will find this collection of accounts of what apparently goes in in some barracks when Big Brother isn't poking under the bedsheets a tremendous turn-on. Not only are the accounts, particularly those of man-to-man sex, so steamy that they sizzle, but the turn-on is all the more real because this isn't fiction. For whatever reason, however, this collection is distinguished from many other compilations of its kind in that this one includes not only the preference for man-to-man sexual contact but the sublimal message that everyone has the basic need to have some physical touch from someone, even if that someone is the same gender. Probably because these are true accounts, their authors disclose their need for human touch and, in doing so, evelate their experiences above the level of carnalism. At the same time, these stories provide a form of foreplay that is as much a turn-on as the actual sex. Read some of these stories and come to your own conclusion if Big Brother has any business delving into its military's human and sexual needs. Beyond that, the stories are simply so hot as to be searing!

HASH(0x9abd22d0) out of 5 stars Real, Honest, HOT !!! 28 Sept. 2002
By Alexander Nikolov - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is much better than reading fiction! It comes from the hearts and souls of the people who have actually experienced what they talk about! This book kept me hot and bothered for a long time and urged me to get more books on the topic of gay sex in the army.
I have a number of experiences with "straight" men although I am only 23 - I think all of this is SO REAL.
Not all stories have the perfect ending as in a fiction book but you know what? THIS IS REAL LIFE!
FIVE STARS!! OUTSTANDING BOOK!

HASH(0x9a98eabc) out of 5 stars THE REAL TRUTH 20 May 2009
By D.P. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Before reading this book, i, like many others,had heard about the high volume of sexual contact that military males share with each other. Upon reading the book, it was very clear that the rumors had truth to them. This book was not only entertaining but it was educational. It was a page turner for sure! I hope I can find another book like this one. All military wives should read this book.
