Seven Against Georgia (Paperback)

Witty, bawdy, and highly titillating, Seven Against Georgia skewers prudish legislation of sexuality by allowing seven flamboyant Spanish gay men to counter sodomy laws by sending their sexual histories and fantasies directly to the head of Georgia's police force. Adopting such over-the-top noms de guerre as Herr Betty Honey and Pamela Poodle, the "ladies" of Seven Against Georgia attack sexual repression with hilarious results. Whether it's Miss Balcony's very special relationship with the man who delivers her morning baguette (and who boasts a similar-sized baton himself), or Herr Betty Honey's passion for a man with a great love of first-communion dresses, Colette Miss Coco's comparative study of the sex she's known in her round-the-world business travels, or Miss Madelon's ode to a man (or, better, several men) in uniform, the testimonials in Seven Against Georgia provide a sparkling entertainment that can be opened at any point and read with great enjoyment. Collectively they make for a delightful and erotic praise to the individual right to pleasure in all its forms.
