  1. When I lived in London, I used to have Sunday afternoon drinking session with a bunch of gay lads and they all LOVED the V.C. Andres books.

  2. Looking over our stats, I saw that some people were coming to this page looking for information on incest or sexual abuse (no, I can’t see who you are, just that someone looked). Here’s a link to a national hotline for those who need help: http://www.rainn.org/. If you need help, there are people who want to help you, and you can remain anonymous They are waiting for you now–let them help you!
