The craziest and most absurd issue that will arise, is that some of them will hate to discover that their heart will in fact fall in love with a woman. For some of those men, when their heart chooses for them who it will love, they in fact will never have had any sexual relations with a woman before up to that point in life.

This book investigates what women enjoy about consuming, and in some cases producing, gay male erotic media—from slashfic, to pornographic texts, to visual pornography—and how this sits within their consumption of erotica and pornography more generally.
