Good Time In The Hood by
Diesel King (Jan 16, 2010)
Paperback ~ In the initial volume of this anthology, Diesel King
presents a shocking revolution to the world of gay erotica. One that surpasses
the comforts of lustful man-sex beyond the safe confines of Castro and Christopher
Streets, and into the rough terrain of the various slums and ghettos that dots
the landscape in between.
A Good Time In The Hood is a collection of homoerotic adventures
told and experienced firsthand by a strikingly handsome muscled man of color
that truly enjoys sex with other men of color in these kinds of places. He revisits
his most intimate accounts, starting with him and his homeboys running trains
on all the neighborhood punks in the dilapidated housing projects that he once
resided in. He then recounts "repaying" what he thought was a business partner
through classic humiliation to turning out a quiet but sexually curious college
student with the help of his former cellmate. In a surprise twist of events,
he also finds himself sharing his wanton lust with two middle-aged brothers
in the same night. He even took to mentoring a nineteen-year-old boy about the
dangers of teasing grown men along so many other scorching hot narratives. Diesel
King offers just a modest taste of the man and his numerous escapades within
these pages. He does so with the sole purpose of whetting appetites and leaving
everyone hungry for more. More

store, 18-year-old Reginald Hall lands an eight-month sentence at the

Attempting suicide, taking drugs, and having illicit sex were only some of the
self-destructive behaviors Reginald dabbled in. His only sanity came from family

with Teddy Cunningham. Teddy had it all: looks, money, respect, and a big love
muscle that Reginald just lusted for.
