No, not those kind of bears. Get your mind out of the Nature channel!
"Jay pushed himself up, and took a good look at the naked man stretched out before him. A glorious dark pelt spread across Sam’s chest and stomach, turning thick and curly at his groin. Jay gave into temptation and rubbed his face into the dark chest hair."
I had something like this in my head when I pictured Sam in Last Stop. Isn't he beautiful?
At the risk of being controversial: hairy men are sexy. There is something primal, something virile about a chest covered in thick pelt and hairy limbs. Mmm…don't you just want to rub your face in it too?
Contemporary aesthetics favor the hairless. Just type "shirtless man" into the search field of any stock photo site to see what I mean. In mainstream porn women have landing strips at their groin and bowling balls stapled to their chests. Men are waxed to every inch of their lives. As if the porn industry was trying to sanitize sex by moving it as far from reality as possible. I'm against this trend. As Woody Allen said, "Sex is only dirty if it's done right."
With all that said, I like to pair my mature and taciturn bear with a smooth-skinned and chatty twink. It's like having Chocolate Fudge Brownie and Cherry Garcia in the same bowl.
You know what I mean?
In closing, let me say this: all you bears and otters out there, you're beautiful! Be proud, hold your heads up high, and say no to manscaping!
Sam Mayne’s life is as dull as the dishwater in his small-town Montana diner, and that’s just how he wants it. Quiet, uneventful, safe from his shadowy past. The breezy young drifter who answers his help-wanted ad makes him uneasy in ways he dare not examine too closely. Except he can’t help but be pulled in by Jay Colby’s spunky attitude, endless stories, and undeniable sex appeal.
Fresh off yet another romantic disaster, Jay doesn’t understand his attraction to the taciturn line cook, but there’s no fighting the chemistry that lands them in bed together. Where Sam’s subtly dominant streak takes command, and Jay delights in discovering the pleasures of his submissive side.
Safe in the assumption their relationship is temporary, neither lover holds back when the heat is on. Until Sam’s deadly past catches up with them with a vengeance, forcing him to drop the life he’s built, pick up his lover, and run. As danger cuts closer to the bone, Sam and Jay are forced to face the truth. About themselves, about the depth of their love—and the newly forged bonds that are about to be tested to the limit.
