Bogosian's "31 Ejaculations" is a fascinating, bang-on, insightful and important examination of the multifaceted, fucked-up and often misunderstood male libido. His descriptions of many and varied sexual encounters and, particularly, the climaxes, are a powerful means of revealing the complexity behind his narrators' motivations. The 31 ejaculations were so different, yet each contained something to which I could relate. Kudos to Bogosian for demonstrating how male sexuality is nowhere near as banal and brutal as widely thought.

I just wanted to let you know that I was disturbed, disgusted, dismayed and utterly shocked at the vile series of utterings by Eric Bogosian. Anything less than that and I would have been really pissed off. Thank you.

Eric Bogosian's 31 Ejaculations are full of cheap stereotypes and cheap porn. The man has outdated ideas of men and women, and very little imagination.
