The most naughty m/m title of the year…
Posted January 4, 2009on:
Seriously, Barbara Sheridan‘s short story BEAUTIFUL C*CKSUCKER, has received more attention for the title rather the content. Even Mrs. Giggles couldn’t resist this story due to all the unfortunate drama.
If you google the title you should be able to find a few blog entries which discuss the title without taking into account whether or not the title is based on the content or if the negative reaction to the work’s label may be premature. Some of the biggest critics did not even read the work.
In any case, I’ve read the story and the title comes right out of the plot which was both a satisfying read and an interesting intro to the BDSM world. The voice for Ray Watts, a member of the NYPD, was very realistic and edgy. In contrast, the attractive Japanese Miki Nabeshima was more reserved but delivers a few good lines and exudes the aura of restrained violence. I would like to adopt some yaoi lingo here and say that both are seme types which only makes the work even more tantalizing.
There are two twists in the plot and both will end up pleasing Watts, satisfying Nabeshima and leaving the reader begging for a longer story featuring these two men.
