things that make you go O_o

So. I read it.

Err. Can’t say I’m totally convinced about the getting off on darky, musky, earthy, strappy things.

What I do think came across very well in the story was the fact that it was a fetish and, hey, to each their own.


… what the heck was with all the “C’MON. SHOOT THAT MOTHERFUCKING LOADs” and “FUCK. I’M COMING. I’M COMINGs”?!?!

I was amazed that Gregg and Dar didn’t wake up half the planet with all the orgasmic yelling, not to mention Dar’s parents who were just down the friggin’ hall!

This actually put me off more than anything else in the book, including the jock huffing.

I mean I know that they were young and enthusiastic and all, but…


FYI, this is why God invented ball gags.

    I haven't read it, nor do I plan on it, but it seems to me somewhere else I read the same complaint. That they were LOUD. Maybe ball gags is their next book, when someone complains to the landlord about the loud sex.

    There was actually a piece in the news here about a couple in London who were ticketed for having loud sex. The neighbors said they couldn't hear the TV over the catterwalling. They checked the decibals and it was something like a jackhammer. So it happens, but people bitch about it.

  2. Val says:

    I haven't read the series either and probably never will if it involves something like “j@ck huff!ng” which sounds like something I really don't want to know about, ha, ha!

    But your observation about loud sex is a good point. In real life, people ALWAYS overhear these things or intuit it somehow, so I've got to laugh when I read fiction where the guys manage to keep it a “secret”.

    I love Tam's news story about the London couple getting ticketed for loud sex!

  4. Not a big fan of the menz screaming their pleasure?

    They can stuff a dirty jock strap in their mouths to shut them up, Bet Jen B would love that.

  5. Natasha says:

    Can't say I heard about the London couple but I don't think it was us LOLOLOL! (Maybe in about 20 years when all the kids have left home)
    Loud jock dorm sex. Heard it and have the T-shirt to prove it:) Okay it was boarding school but hey close enough, right?

  6. Tam says:

    Noisy couple. I love how they think it's NORMAL. LOL

  7. Chris says:

    Yeah, the yelling thing was a total WTF?! break out of the story for me every time.

  8. Jenre says:

    The whole jock strap thing just put me off reading this book so I can't possibly comment.

    There's a lot of load sex in m/m. I kind of like it, the sort of uninhibitedness (if that's a word) of it all. Mind you, I have been squicked out by books with loud m/m sex when I knew that there was a kid just down the corridor and I would probably feel the same about parents being able to hear too.

  9. JenB says:


    And the jock huffing is bad enough, but what about the JOCK SUCKING??? And the “ripe and tangy” dick cheese???

    So. Fucking. NASTY.

    (KB, you're a mean girl)

  10. Tam says:

    Thank you Jen. Thanks so much for that image. I hope you freeze to death down in Texas. Or get snow up to your ankles.

  11. Ingrid says:

    Kris I have to applaud you for finishing this one. I did not.

  12. Lily says:

    LOL, Bobby's books always have the sniffing, jock loving and very loud sex going on. I don't have a problem with the loud sex and his books are not the only ones with guys yelling, roaring and screaming when they come.

    The dick cheese and jock huffing however I skim thru real fast.

  13. JenB says:

    Don't thank me, Tam; thank Bobby for writing it in the first place. πŸ˜€

  14. K. Z. Snow says:

    Yelling I can take (although it makes me chuckle, because it reminds me of the rib-cracking scenes I've read on Literotica). But the “ripe and tangy”? No. I'm not sure I can even eat supper now.

  15. Chris says:

    And the Bobby Michaels Diet is stunningly successful…

  16. LOL! Oooh is THAT why God invented ball gags!? I thought because it's just sexy but this makes more sense… πŸ˜‰

    Ehww, the dick cheese is just too much, yuk!

  17. Kris says:

    Tam, that true story is too funny.

    They were LOUD. BTW, that's actually how the yelling was printed in the story to make sure that you knew it was LOUD. Hmmm, maybe what it is is that I have a bias against uppercase the same way I do with italics?? Could be.

    Val: Did you miss my jock huffing firsts post that I did especially for JenB? πŸ˜‰

    “In real life, people ALWAYS overhear these things or intuit it somehow.”

    Exactly! These two characters pretty much fucked everywhere and no one ever heard them or caught them at it?? Oookay.

    Katiebabs chook: I'm fine with it. It's when it happens in uppercase for paragraphs in every fucking scene where I have issues.

    “They can stuff a dirty jock strap in their mouths to shut them up, Bet Jen B would love that.”

    I was gonna say that in the post, but I though I'd better not. See. I can be nice sometimes.

  18. Matthew says:

    Brave girl. I hate this book.

  19. Kris says:

    Tish, that's my point. Those dormitories are like little compartments and the walls are paper thing. How likely would it be that all the uppercase yelling of 'I'M GONNA SHOOT MY MOTHERFUCKING LOADs' wouldn't get heard and probably complained about??

    Chris, it was weird, right. I ended up skipping most of the sex scenes in the end because the yelling was pissing me off too much.

    Jenre: It was pretty descriptive jock huffing so, yeah, probably a good decision not to read it since you find the whole thing a bit squicky.

    One of the major things that bothered me was that the loud sex in the parent's house happened the same night the parent's met the boyfriends and were still dealing with the whole coming out thing. Would you be really having loud sex in those circumstances?? Cos I wouldn't.

  20. Kris says:

    JenB: Thanks for that reminder. Nothing like the thought of smegma to make a person feel like they can face the rest of the day.

    Ingrid: Now having read it, I can see why people would find it hard going.

    Lily: “I don't have a problem with the loud sex and his books are not the only ones with guys yelling, roaring and screaming when they come.”

    I agree. A lot of m/m romance seems to have orgasmic yelling. In this case, I did find it repetitive though, hence my skipping sex scenes.

  21. I think the LOUD stuff bothered me more than the huffing cheese etc. But I still read the whole thing – there was just something about it, I couldn't let go.

    Like looking at some of the pics you put up on here. The non-cookie ones, I mean.

  22. Kris says:

    KZ: “I'm not sure I can even eat supper now.”

    You think that's bad?! I'm having difficulty facing my first coffee. Now, that's a real problem… and not just for me.

    Janna: “Oooh is THAT why God invented ball gags!?”

    Would I lie to you? πŸ˜‰

    “Ehww, the dick cheese is just too much, yuk!”

    It was the part where one of the guys didn't want the other to get rid of it for, err, fetish type purposes that got me.

  23. LOL! I can always count on you to make it worse… you like to send me to bed with the most 'thrilling' images, don't you?

  24. Tam says:

    “And the Bobby Michaels Diet is stunningly successful…”

    I scared my daughter laughing Chris.

    Since Wren is here, SHE wrote loud sex, but I thought handled it brilliantly, and humorously. I could barely have sex in my own house when my parents were visiting, first night at the boyfriend's parents? Ummm, don't bloody touch me.

  25. Kris says:

    Matthew: I can certainly see why some might. I did like some of the premise such as the way Dar came out to his folks, but, for me, these tended to be lost in amongst the sex scenes and seemed to be resolved a little too easily at times.

    Wren, you really prefer the non-cookie images? You sick??

    Interesting that you were bothered by the LOUD sex more than the jock huffing as well. Maybe there are parts of us that are still prudish.

    Granted, they are very small parts, but…

  26. I do like to read some scenes where both are loud but not so where they turn all red and look like they need to poop. Not sexy.

    And don't even go there with certain fetish, SC!

  27. Chris says:

    “Scaring children and small pets since 2010.”

  28. Kris says:

    Janna, yes. Yes, I do. *beams*

    Tam: “I could barely have sex in my own house when my parents were visiting, first night at the boyfriend's parents? Ummm, don't bloody touch me.”

    That's it exactly. The 'are you fucking mental?' response seems more appropriate to me too.

  29. Kris says:

    Katiebabs chook: “And don't even go there with certain fetish, SC!”

    Hey, you're the one that brought it up so if the fetish fits…

    Chris: *snort*

  30. Kassa says:

    *peeks through fingers* .. well you wanted to read something new didn't you? : D

  31. Kris says:

    Smart arse.

  32. K. Z. Snow says:

    “I do like to read some scenes where both are loud but not so where they turn all red and look like they need to poop.”

    That would be a bone-kill for me if were a guy.

    πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

  33. Kris says:

    You know I could say something here about anal sex and constipation, but I won't because I have class.

  34. And a bell ring's in hell by Kris's statement. I know it can't be the end of the world yet cause it's not 2012.

  35. Kris says:

    And it's because I'm all about being classy that I shall ignore the biatchness of that last comment.

  36. Ha! I laughed so hard I snorted. Ball gags indeed. heh

  37. You finally read it Chris -…

    Lots of low lights for you I see…

    I think I have just accepted some things as part and parcel of B Michaels work – as Lily said – some things are just trade mark Michael's…

    Once you know that – just skim….

    I am so ready for the third book…


  38. Okay, first, I may have written loud sex but I didn't use ALL CAPS and the reason you knew it was so loud was the complaints of the people next door! I guess what I'm trying to say is I have issues with the caps.

    Second, lord I have to work on my communication skills! I LOVE the cookie pics best of all. The weirdo ones are, um, they have the same appeal as a car wreck, or, no, wait, that's not it either, but maybe one of those drawings that, no, not that… it's like you want to look away but you just can't until you've figured it out.

    Oh why do I try? I think I should just dig a hole here so I can jump into it instead of leaving comments. Sheesh. Have some more coffee and move along, move along.

  39. orannia says:

    And the “ripe and tangy” dick cheese???

    YUCK! Nasty, nasty, nasty! *shudders*

    I can't pick the book up now, I just can't.

    And as for the noise…why would you want everyone to know what you're up too? Unless, of course, you don't realise you're that loud… As for the neighbours making a noise complaint…it reminds me of my neighbour from London. Honestly, she could hear a pin drop!

  40. Kris says:

    Bridget, well, it's true! πŸ˜‰

    EH: Even though I'm taking the piss, I actually didn't not like it. It was more that I would have enjoyed it more had there been less sex and the plot been given even more emphasis. That was my main niggle when it boiled down to it.

    Wren, LOL! And you call yourself a writer. πŸ˜‰

    PS – Prepare yourself for the weekend. It's gonna be interesting… for you. *mwahahahahaha!*

    Orannia: “And as for the noise…why would you want everyone to know what you're up too?” Bragging rights, hun. It's the old “Hey, we're having lots of sex and you aren't” kind of thing. πŸ™‚

  41. *pulls blanket over head and squeezes eyes shut*

    You can't see me!

  42. Kris says:

    You think a little thing like being able to see you is going to stop me??

  43. Tracy says:

    Yes, the yelling in this book put me off more than the jock huffing although I can't say that that was pleasant.

    The dick cheese was completely nasty.

  44. Kris says:

    I think I need to stop doing these types of posts because the comments always put me off my morning coffee. 😦

  45. Chris says:

    Or mayhap drink your morning coffee and let it settle before reading your comments.

  46. Kris says:

    Tried that already. Needless to say there was evidence that such an approach didn't work.
