With a title like that, what more can I say? A fabulously sexy cover on this vintage, explicit gay novel, set on Fire Island and now considered one of the classics of 1960s gay pulp.

I was thinking the same thing too - it's a drawing, why'd they put in the weird tan lines?

I wonder which one is the whore and which is the John.

great cover. very gay positive. the price, $1.25, marks it as probably late 60s rather than early 60s, when it would have been harder to have something so bright and cheery and gay. shows how fast change was coming in the last years of the 60s. no wonder the queens were ready to riot at Stonewall.
