"Paired with sunscreen or a light, cooling beverage of choice, this book is the perfect complement to a restful and recharging jaunt to the seashore... or wherever else men gather to shuck their cares and their clothes, dive in, and get wet. Be sure you bring a towel when you set off on these journeys to the erotic side, because you just might need it."—EDGE

"Younger guys, older guys, beach volleyball players and bodybuilders—they’re all hot and they’re all here."—Erotica Readers and Writers Association

"Gay erotica with the perfect theme for summer — lashings of sex on the beach."—Erotic Trade Only

There’s something so sexy about a beach—and the men who hang around it. Whether it’s on the ocean, a lake, or a New Zealand river, beaches mean water and sunshine and handsome guys showing off what God or genetics gave them. Pick any beach around the world, and you’re bound to find excellent eye candy. These gorgeous guys are the stuff of gay fantasy—from sleek swimmers to muscular surfers and boarders to sun-worshipping naturists. Their skins are toned golden brown, and their bodies shimmer with droplets of water. The stories in this collection showcase those Beach Bums. From a Massachusetts winter to a hot Oregon summer, tropical St. Maarten to Venice’s Muscle Beach, sweethearts and strangers meet for love, seduction and sex to the accompaniment of the crashing surf. A hog ridin' horn dog heads for San Francisco's Ocean Beach looking for action in Rob Rosen's "Rules is Rules' while a water polo champ turned lifeguard has everyone jumping in his pool in Dominic Santi's "Mix and Match," A sexy silver-haired surfer intrigues and attracts in the fun "February Fantasy." Younger guys, older guys, beach volleyball players and bodybuilders—they’re all hot and they’re all here. Here’s hoping they inspire your own beach dreams!
