Firstly, the author is obsessed with bodily fluids and during the story the heroes get covered with a nasty range of them, which, I have to be honest, made me a little nauseous at times and wanting to reach for the bleach.
Linking in with this is the amount of sexual references in the story. The guys are always thinking about sex, getting hard, coming in their pants and having sex none of which happens with condoms , all at what I would consider inappropriate moments. It did make me roll my eyes a little at how completely hormone soaked these guys are. Despite all the misplaced sex and sexual longing, this was still a very enjoyable book.
Thanks for the info Mark and Wave. I envy you. As for the sex without condoms.
This is a sci fi story. There are no condoms in that world. What were you thinking? The bodily fluids? Par for the course. Guys getting pregnant? Are they engaged or just hanging out and having sex? You are right, I am having fun with it. Great to get your thoughts again.
