Book Description

A follow-up to O'Hara's steamy and provocative book Autopornography: A Memoir of Life in the Lust Lane, Rarely Pure and Never Simple: Selected Essays of Scott O'Hara shares with you more intimate stories from former porn star Scott O'Hara. You'll gain an even deeper sense of the man behind the "Biggest Dick in San Francisco" and come to understand his take on porn, sex, life, and loss. Discussing his ventures as a writer, playwright, and editor of the popular but short-lived journal Steam, Rarely Pure and Never Simple includes poems and stories by O'Hara that express his opinions and feelings about monogamy, safe sex, male beauty, morality, social politics, and "being queer." O'Hara also relates his childhood experiences to his adult life and uses many examples to link the past to his actions and thoughts concerning his sexuality. Bold, personal, and honest, Rarely Pure and Never Simple gives you an inside look into the life of this controversial author, who died in February 1998 of AIDS-related complications. O'Hara challenges the "norms" of society as he discloses intimate thoughts and details about his sex life and fantasies that are guaranteed to arouse your ...curiosity.
