WHOEVER it was said clothes make the man should have been writing adult erotica.
Actually, I just checked on Google and it turns out it was Mark Twain who came up with that one…and I doubt somehow that he ever attempted an explicit men only version of Huckleberry Finn!
Nevertheless, he did have a valid point for clothes surely do make up one of the most important elements of any good piece of erotic fiction.
I am one of those people who finds the best part of a birthday or Christmas is the sense of anticipation, looking at the gifts with their wrapping paper and bows, imaging what might be yours…and then ripping it off and hoping you won’t be disappointed.
It’s the same with sex – a naked body is a naked body but dress it properly, tease your reader with the possibility of what lies beneath and you have created an instant erotic atmosphere.
A man is just a man but put him in tight Levis, an even tighter white singlet and a hard hat and then sling a tool belt around his waist and you have the horny handyman, waiting to screw whatever he can.
Personally, although there is the occasional working guy in my stories – for instance a particularly horny and sweaty odd job man in Masters and Servants, part of my While the Wife’s Away collection – my preference is always for men in suits.
And the reason for that is quite simply that there’s more to unwrap, more pleasure in the anticipation as we unfasten the sexy tie, slowly unbutton the shirt – there’s nothing quite as sexy and stimulating as a simple button - and then strip him right down to the socks.
Here’s my randy middle aged and married businessman, dressed to impress in While the Wife’s Away…
I could no longer resist the urge to loosen his tie, always my favourite moment in the early stages of seduction, pulling at the knot just enough to allow me to undo the top two buttons of his shirt, allowing me to see a glimpse of the hairy chest I had rightly guessed would be there for me to enjoy.
Two more buttons unfastened revealed the dark forest of hair that swirled down from his shoulder blades and would, I guessed, go all the way down to the groin.
I pulled the shirt open, ran my hands through the hair and found the nipples, tweaking them gently before moving down to lick and suck, my tongue finding a way through the hair to the delicate hard pink that responded to my lips by becoming deliciously erect.
“I want you in my bed,” he groaned, pulling me to my feet and taking me by the hand as he led me upstairs to the bedroom, where an ornate brass bed with cool cotton sheets was waiting for us to begin the next stage of our sexual journey.
As he lay there, I undid the last button on his shirt, pulling it off and throwing it to one side, removed his shoes and socks, pulled off the black trousers and tugged his jock strap off to reveal…
Just remember that even in the oldest story ever told, things only get interesting once clothes make their debut.
Adam and Eve are living in happy innocence in the Garden of Eden before they taste the forbidden fruit and cover their nakedness.
Once the fig leaf – or the boiler suit or the dinner suit or even the suit of armour – makes it appearance you can’t help but wonder what the man might have hidden from public view and once you begin the fantasy process of removing each layer the possibilities for sexual excitement are endless.
And remember that the longer you can make the process of stripping last, the greater the sexual tension and the greater the ultimate pleasure - though there’s equally gratification to be had from two men who are so desperate that they literally rip their clothes off as they fuck!
Either way, that’s why I always like to make sure my men are fully dressed for the job – and are always ready to begin to a sensual striptease, one saucy item at a time.
And it’s also one of the main reasons why my next story is going to be a piece of historical fiction set at the start of the 20th century when men wore jackets, shirts with studs and detachable collars – a particular favourite of mine - ties, waistcoats, braces, granddad style buttoned vests, long underwear and then, in a final erotic flourish, socks with suspenders!
By the time you get down to the naked hairy chest – usually an essential in my stories though there are a few smoothies like myself along the way – the reader should be so excited that he’ll be wanting to do a strip of his own!
While the Wife’s Away is a collection of three gay short stories from well-known erotic author Kris Andersson.
While the Wife's Away: When the boss suggests an evening meeting at his home and makes it quite clear that his wife is away for the night, you can guarantee that there will be more than statistics and spread sheets on the agenda - and by the end of the night a new sort of business partnership has been created.
Masters and Servants: It's hard losing your job - and even harder looking for something new. But just how far will one man go to impress the boss? From steamy encounters in the office to passion in a scenic lift and shower room to lust in the potting shed, this is one job search that proves especially stimulating!
The Sin of Father Anthony: When a new priest arrives in town, one lapsed Catholic decides it's time to start attending Mass again - but he has more than absolution on his mind as he uses his girlfriend to get closer to the true object of his desire and give him a night he’ll never forget. From lusty housekeepers and choir mistresses to a hairy trucker with a taste for stockings and suspenders, this is a story packed with sexual thrills for a young man on a personal mission to satisfy his gay passions.
Kris Andersson is an award-winning writer - and occasional actor - who specialises in gay erotica. His work has been described as both pacy and steamy. His current titles include While The Wife’s Away – a collection of three stories - Acts of Passion and A Special Gift. A fourth title is expected to be published very soon and will take Kris in a very different direction, a gay love story set against the horrors of the First World War and its aftermath.
