Best LGBT Erotica: Buccaneer Island by J.P. Beausejour

At first I was not sure what to “do” with this book; the historical setting was very appealing, but this poor boy, Edmund, was always ending in a trouble, one worse than the other. Sure, more or less he was enjoying the experience, but well, for the third son of an English earl to end, more or less, on the meat market as sexual slave… but then I had like a lightning of understanding, what I was reading was like one of those feuilleton, only with a LOT of sex on it. Basically the plot was a frame to the sex, and in this context, it was a nice addition, but it wasn’t supposed to be accurate or consistent. Buccaneer Island is the retelling of the sexual adventures of Edmund, something that he is doing in his old age, adventures no one believes are real, and maybe neither Edmund, maybe he is enriching them a little.

There is even the hint of a transgender story, Edmund is so willing to please his master of the moment that he changes his looks to appear as a woman, and maybe he would have even considered a sex change (rudimental and quite dangerous). Sure, at that point the reader is questioning how much is Edmund’s sexual fantasy and how much can be considered real (I propend for the first hypothesis).

In any case, even when he is in the most dangerous situation, Edmund approached everything like he was taking a sexy escapade from reality, always sure his noble parents will rescue him sooner or later, and when that happens, well, it’s almost a bummer to Edmund, who was enjoying the freedom of the Buccaneer Island, especially the sexual freedom.
