The Great Cock Hunt- Alex

We have not discussed this in the group but it reminds me why our group TGCHdoesn’t ‘do porn’ at our meetings, though we have joked about it.

I saw what must be one of the most ‘explicit’ American television series, based on this book and was so intrigued that I ordered the book.

The author cannot write to save his life: words like ‘like’, ‘totally’, ‘whatever’, ‘dinner and shit.’

He is very repetitive – he reminds you about people he introduced just three pages ago, just in case you’d forgotten. We are not allowed to forget that most American males are circumcised so we are treated top detailed descriptions of the use of lube; sadly we hear little about condoms – it must be true that younger people take risks where HIV is concerned.

There is very little plot, except for the multiple encounters being loosely pegged around a college reunion, like most porn I suppose: simply a ‘blow by blow’ (literally) account of endless couplings. The author seems to have worked his way through an entire tennis club, and when he isn’t doing anything with someone else then we are treated to his fantasy world.

I have no right to moralise – when I was his age, if I could get as much action as he did I would have gone for it. But to ruin a good friendship with a girl friend because she slept with someone that I wanted – well no – friendship is worth more than a hundred furtive encounters.

There are some funny bits: Lizzie thinks it’s bad for you to breathe in the fumes from the scented candle. “The chemicals are probably really bad for you,” she said in all seriousness as she was preparing to inhale tar and nicotine and countless carcinogens.

And a description of cunnilingus as ‘his carpet cleaning capabilities’ by which ‘he had her popping like popcorn in a furnace and melting like boiling butter in a matter of minutes.’
