So, this book is all about dealing with crazy, taboo topics in the stupidest possible way. So, yes, there's kinky gay sex and weird addictions and wacky piercings. Woohoo. It's as if Scott thought that the more unmentionable the subject matter was, the less likely people would be to notice the super shitty writing and the horrible, terrible, burn-them-with-fire awful characters. Dennis Cooper this guy is not.
