Andrew Taylor Jackson is a recent college graduate whose search for love more often ends with sex. In this collection of short stories, he recounts, in intimate detail, his relationships with the girl next door, a nymphomaniac coed, a blond coc fiend with a southern drawl, an older married woman who appears to be using HIM for sex and a flight attendant who returns with a different personality every time she flies.
"She didn't need to be "institutionalized." She just needed a Prozac and someone with a lot more patience than him."
His journey takes him all over the country and beyond—from The Great Alaskan Bush Company in Anchorage to the gay bars of Chinatown in Portland to the red light districts of Bangkok to a quixotic road trip to Wells, Nevada, one of the last bastions of legal prostitution in the United States.
"I used to go drinking in the red light districts of Bangkok, Hong Kong and Saigon—imagine I was Henry Miller, trolling the streets for sex."
His traveling companions include a tall, blond ladies' man who is "absolutely always looking for any sorta girl he can find, in any sorta position he can get her in" and a big brawler with a minor porn addiction and severe masturbation problem. Their relationships are often complicated, occasionally hilarious and always pretty hot.
"One looked like sin and the other like salvation. I was suddenly torn between the kind of girl you marry and the kind you cheat on your wife with."
Other characters he meets along the way include: a fledgling paparazzi who's determined to catch him in a compromising position, a friend blessed with an exceptionally large penis, a drag queen with a hairy back, a former high school sweetheart who's experimenting with celibacy and three super hot southern belles.
Sex deals with a wide range of sexual and romantic issues, including: infidelity, divorce, pornography, masturbation, prostitution, homosexuality, group sex, strippers, older women, younger men and more. Although it does contain some pretty graphic sexual imagery, Sex is not a work of erotic fiction or romance, but rather a genre best defined by Henry Miller as erotic literature. It is written in a casual autobiographical style that is reminiscent not only of Miller, but also of Kerouac and Bukowski.
Sex also includes original art by Scall. And it is specially designed for the digital format with art, hyperlinks and fiction of all lengths, including feature length stories that you can read when you have time kick back and relax, as well as some shorter pieces and flash fiction that you can read when you have a few minutes to kill.
