Author: Steve Fentone
Publisher: Fab Press
Ah, the old 'Nasty Nun.' A perennial cultural icon who never fails to titillate. And here it is, the sinful antics of these wayward Brides Of Christ encapsulated in this oversize, overstuffed, encyclopedic epic. A result of eight years obsessive research, at times brilliant, always provocative and lavishly illustrated throughout with almost 900 incredible images, AntiCristo is a film-book whose scope extends to cover all other communications media including television, theater, comics, music, advertising and multimedia.
Don Leon and Leon to Annabella
Author: George Gordon Byron Baron Byron, Lord Byron (allonym), Louis Crompton
Published in the early to mid-19th century, Don Leon is unique in English literature. It is a powerful outcry against injustice, a moving and erudite defense of male love, and an account of Byron's sexuality, which on the whole has proven to be true. Among neglected masterpieces, Don Leon heads the list -- not only neglected, but vilified and rigorously suppressed. It is great literature, and undeniably pornographic. The Pagan Press edition is complete and unbowdlerized, with added critical material. This is the great gay epic, a powerful reading experience and a treasure trove of information for gay scholars.
Men for Men
Author: Pierre Borhan, Gilles Mora
As soon as the invention of photography made it possible to be photographed with one's loved one, early daguerreotypes - small, unique images housed in their cases - were made as tokens of enduring affection or intimacy. Male couples were no exception. Under strict Victorian moral conventions photographs of the male nude were reserved strictly for academic study by artists. It was not until the early twentieth century that the first openly homosexual photographers were able to explore the overtly erotic, and this they did by wrapping their subjects in historical reference by evoking images of ancient Greece or Pre-Raphaelite symbolism. After Alfred Kinsey's revelations of male sexuality, published in 1948, an enormous photographic market emerged for pictures of the muscular male physique. Homoeroticism had entered the mainstream photographic language. In this ground-breaking book organised by Gilles Mora with a substantial text by Pierre Bohran, the whole history of the genre is charted from its clandestine origins to its open glorification, including the work of photographic masters such as Brassai and August Sander, as well as the notorious underground excursions of Robert Mapplethorpe. We can follow how a homosexual view has now shaped the new iconography of fashion and the public male image.
This is a new release of the original 1944 edition.

Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
This book is a survivor's account of how he was helped to come with terms with being sexually abused throughout his boyhood. It will allow survivors, child protection workers and therapists to see what can be learned about profoundly harmful abuse, preventing it and charting a path to recovery if prevention fails. The survivors account is supported by Calder's theoretical frameworks and his insights into perpetrators behaviour.
Author: Restif De La Bretonne, Iwan Bloch
Publisher: Wet Angel Books
Restif de la Bretonne was perhaps the key author inspired by the publication of the Marquis de Sade's 'obscene' masterworks Juliette and Justine. In 1798 Restif wrote this pornographic epic, thus beginning a long tradition that continues to this day. The story is a pornographic novelization of Restif's sexual debauches, which he tried to defend 'morally' by declaring it an 'antidote' to the supposed poison of de Sade; yet while it opens with a warning to women against cruelty, it soon develops into an odyssey of sexual depravity which rivals de Sade in its relentlessy explicit nature.
