While stereotypical depictions of Asian men as feminine, flowering "china dolls" predominate in American gay culture, this collection dispels those images with exciting new ones of gay Asian sexuality. From Chinese bodybuilders to Samoan giants, from hand-holding Viet Cong to drag queens at the Peking Opera, "Queer PAPI Porn" breaks all boundaries of sex, race, and desire.

Gay male erotica--or, more forthrightly, porn--used to be defined largely by sloppy writing, homogenized fantasies, and a lack of cultural and racial diversity. The quality of erotica is getting better (check out the Best Gay Erotica series by Cleis Press for proof), and there's a wealth of new diversity out there as well. Joel Tan's Queer PAPI Porn is a groundbreaking anthology of contemporary porn written by men of Philippine, Asian, and Pacific Island decent (PAPI) that stimulates our libido, invigorates our sense of art, and challenges our notions of what porn and literature might be. Tan has collected stories by 19 of the most noted gay PAPI writers--including Lawrence Chua, Justin Chin, R. Zamora Linmark, and Allen de Souza--to produce an anthology shockingly good and always sexually stimulating. Not one piece here trades on cliché or formula, with originality showing throughout. Jason Guillermo Luz's "Scherzo for Cunanan" is a meditation on cross-country killer Andrew Cunanan that explores a fantasy sexual and national connection between the author and the killer. "Bite," by Justin Chin, is a surrealistic sex-speed rap that shocks with its explicit coprophiliac images as it examines how gender and race are constructed in sex and desire. Nino Alvarez's "True Love" is a lovely, troubling, and hypnotic story of a Chinese American gay man who dotes on his 300-pound African American lover as they both work to increase his weight to 600 pounds. Surprising and masterfully written, Queer PAPI Porn is one of the best literary and erotic books in years. --Michael Bronski
