We’re Both Straight, Right? – Jamie Fessenden

11514958

“I wasn’t going to suck some random guy’s dick. That would probably be pretty gross. But I figured sucking on yours wouldn’t be too bad.”

 

In a word: Read the thing. I didn’t find this as good as other works I’d read from this author, but I still enjoyed it. It was funny, and frustrating at some parts, and kind of silly. Zack and Larry have been best friends since middle school and now they’re roommates in college. They’re both in need of money and that leads them to consider doing gay-for-pay porn. Neither of them has been with men before so they decide to practise with each other so they won’t embarrass themselves in front of a camera. That’s the premise. It could have ended up being a whole lot sillier than it actually was, except we also get a sexuality crisis and surprise romance thrown in. I personally felt that the sexuality crisis was gotten over fairly quickly considering how much Zack was worrying about it, and I still don’t know how to feel about Larry’s character (sometimes I like him, sometimes I don’t), and I felt that the romance was a bit rushed and not very fleshed out, but that could all be down to the length since this one is pretty short. It’s a quick read and, in the end, it’s all pretty fun.
