Out Now: TRYSTS: Tales of “Tea Room Queens” by Mykola Dementiuk

Two-time Lambda Award winner Mykola Dementiuk is simply the best queer erotica writer we know - and this, his newest book shows him at his strengths ... and then some.  Pick up Trysts and experience Mick at his best!


"There was a time (and still is) when gay men who frequented public bathrooms looking for sex were known as 'Tea Room Queens'. There is something exciting about the danger of having sex in a public place, and Mykola Dementiuk tells us all about it.

"That period of wild bathroom sex is somewhat behind us and one of the reasons could be, like Dementiuk says, the [comparative] lack of public bathrooms today. There was a time when bathrooms were used for more than just the calls of nature and people would come in, do what they had to do, practice a little masturbation (either alone or with someone else) and then disappear in to the city. Words were not spoken nor did they have to be. There were men who would make the rounds of the bathrooms ('tea rooms') every day and usually without the need to actually use the facilities. There was something about the danger and the anonymity that turned people on.

"It was quick sex that ended as quickly as it began. It was easy enough, as we learn here: all a man had to do was go in and ...stand there. It was not long before the party would begin. Dementiuk takes us back to the golden days and captures it like it was. Like the way Dementiuk writes—a bit wild, a bit sexy and altogether wonderful."
