...Just Dynamic Tension

They Got Their Kicks from Forbidden Feats of Strength

Most men fall in love with women. But some men fall in love with themselves--men like the weight-lifters of muscle beach.

For these body worshippers, their physique is their fortune. Whether it's being exhibited performing feats of strength, or leered at in glossy photos by thrill-seekers of every sex and taste, there's big money in those biceps. And it's often dirty money!

Teen-ager Jerry carpenter found that out when he, for kicks and vanity, got himself involved in the sordid dealings of a notorious photographer and the strange characters that surrounded him.

What you've heard about in whispers is frankly, startlingly revealed in MUSCLE BOY, a novel that bares the naked truth about the Beefcake Kings.


Wow! It would take a "forbidden feat of strength" to keep me from reading this.

It was awesome actually. Kind of Hellfire Club / Sadean undertones, big gothic finish, but with catty muscle boys. I meant to do a full review but it got away from me.

Glad you like the blog...In the process of checking out yours.
