Erotic Fiction

I've been writing erotic fiction since way back when they called it "porn." My first published story was called "The Cop Who Caught Me," and I sold it to Honcho Magazine for $75. That was a lot of money back then (still is today) and I was thrilled. I'm still writing and publishing stories. Below you'll find them organized by the anthologies I've edited for Cleis Books, the collections of my own stories I've put together, and a listing of the individual stories I've published elsewhere that I haven't collected yet myself. (If I've already put that story into a collection I'm not longer listing the anthology where it originally appeared, just to avoid confusion.)

Tough Guy Erotica

Tough Guy Erotica

One day I looked up and realized that I had written a whole lot of erotic fiction for anthologies and magazines. I thought I'd put together a collection of those stories myself. Then I realized I'd written even more than I thought, and that I had enough stories for three different collections. Each book has a selection of previously published stories, some from long-forgotten magazines and websites, as well as a few new stories.

My favorite, if I have to admit, is Tough Guy Erotica. These are my stories about construction workers, bears, cops, delivery men, and other hunky types. It's a funy, sexy collection.

Mr. Surfer: Romantic Erotica

Mr Surfer I've had a lot of fun writing erotic romance, and that comes through in the selection of stories in Mr. Surfer: Romantic Erotica. What makes something romantic, you might ask? I think it's about the happy ending, and about the romantic connection between the two guys, over and above the hot sex.

Travel with me to Hawaii, Florida, New York -- even outer space-- for these stories of hippies, rodeo cowboys, surfers, scientists, dog lovers and others. Imagine a planet where 90% of the population is gay, and one poor teen is singled out to procreate with woman-- and how he escapes. Fall in love with a baker, ride out a hurricane, and experience lomi-lomi massage.

Hope you feel as romantic after reading these as I did while writing them!

Pledge Class: An Erotic Education

Pledge Class College boys are one of the most frequent subjects of gay erotica, and I certainly have a collection of stories about them. They can be on or off campus, or even out in the wide world, but they're all hot and horny and ready for fun! The title story is one of my very favorites, about a fraternity initiation with a couple of surprising (and very sexy) twists.

Mahu Men

mahu men erotica 200

Buy for Kindle
WARNING: These are piece of erotic fiction, not crime fiction, though there may be mystery elements. This is a new and revised edition of the previously published book, confined only to erotica. Other crime stories featuring Kimo are collected in the anthology Accidental Contact.

Ten erotic stories set in the world of openly gay Honolulu homicide detective Kimo Kanapa’aka. Moving from pickups to murders, Kimo surfs the waves of his professional and personal lives in a sexy, sensual tropical paradise, where danger and desire lurk behind every palm tree.

The stories fill the gaps between the Mahu novels, showing Kimo dating as well as solving cases and establishing a relationship with his new detective partner. Mixing the sensuality of erotica with the sharp-edged attitude of mysteries, Mahu Men is a chance for new readers to meet Kimo, and for fans to delve more deeply into his world.

“One of Plakcy's gifts is for his secondary characters. Five stars for the overall effort and dazzling effect of these tales.” A.J. Llewellyn, author of the Last Warrior Series

“Plakcy’s storytelling is tight, flawlessly executed, eminently interesting and inspiring.” George Seaton, Out in Print.

Books in the Mahu series have reached the finalist stage for the Lambda Literary Awards as well as winning mystery fan awards.

Hard Hats

hard hats 300 I spent five years working as a project manager on various shopping center construction sites, and the hard-working, hard-bodied guys I saw around me every day were the subject of some of my most intense fantasies. From the shirtless carpenters to the beefy laborers, there was plenty of guy candy.

I loved their macho posturing, and after a few months I was able to give and take with the best of them. I always had an eye out for a handsome guy, and for a secluded corner of the site where we could get together.

That experience inspired me to put together a collection for Cleis Press called Hard Hats, asking some of the best writers of gay erotica to turn their attention to the hard-hatted construction workers who had provided me with so much inspiration in the past. There's just something about a guy with a tool belt that turns me on, and I hope you'll feel the same way about the men in these very hot stories.

Take a trip to the top of a highrise under construction, or down in to the belly of a mine. Hang out in the backyard with some hunky landscapers or roofers, slip into a construction manager's RV or into a storefront under construction. Wherever you go, you'll find sexy, men-loving men who are turned on by their buddies' tools. In this world, the hats aren't the only things that are hard!

Surfer Boys

surfer boys

When Cleis asked me to edit a second anthology for them, based on the title Surfer Boys, how could I refuse? I've built a literary career around a sexy Hawaiian surfer.

But I knew that I had to broaden the reach of this book, so I encouraged some terrific writers to send me stories of surfer boys around the world-- from Australia to the Jersey shore, from Florida to a little island off the coast of Tunisia.

Surfer Boys is a collection of steamy gay erotic fiction that will transport you to sun-drenched beaches and wild waves. Follow the adventures of hot, young surfers as they explore their sexuality and fall in love under the scorching sun. From first-time encounters to forbidden romance, this collection will have you on the edge of your seat. Whether you're a fan of romance, erotica, or just a good story, Surfer Boys is sure to satisfy your desiresIt's a very sexy book!

Skater Boys

skater cover 300

Two words describe the appeal of skateboarders: barely legal. It takes a tough and independent young man to find the best places to shred, so it’s no wonder skaters have become the object of fantasies by gay men: brimming with attitude and sexual confidence, skaters are athletic and quick to shed their shirt. Besides being rough and ripped, the hot young studs in Skater Boys all have one additional thing in common — a love of gay sex.

Teen shredders get it on with each other in “Slash-n-Burn,” “Carter DuBose,” and “Totally Choice.” Older men get their share of boarder bootie in “Sex in the Streets” and “In This Our Day.” “Something to Remember You By” and “Boyz in the ‘Hood” pack an emotional punch, while "Kick, Push" and "It's Not About Love" are just great fun. Take a ride with the uninhibited, wild young men of Skater Boys.

The Handsome Prince

handsome prince 300 We all know the fairy tale. The handsome prince comes riding up on his white stallion and rescues the beautiful princess from her enchantment with a single kiss. Then they ride off together to live happily ever after.

But what if, as in my own story, "The Prince of Eisengraf," the person longing for that handsome prince is a man himself? I love the way the stories in this anthology find so many different ways of turning the story into something very different, but with the same outcome.

This book is a mix of traditional and contemporary stories, each with its own unique fairy-tale atmosphere . Sometimes the prince is the one who needs rescuing, as in "Chauffeur Prince" and "Creosote Flats and the Big Spread." Sometimes the true prince is the other guy--like in "The Virgin Prince and the Rebel Chief" and "Reckless." There is humor and charm in these stories, with an underlay of passion and desire.

The one thing these stories have in common, along with the original fairy tales, is a happy ending. Whether it's a HEA--happily ever after--or a HFN-happy for now--when these guys find their princes, hot steamy sex ensues.

Model Men

model men 300 Who hasn't experienced a pang of lust or longing at a photo of a male model? Whether a hundred times life size on a billboard, or romping through the pages of a glossy magazine in his Calvins, Tommys or Ralphs, the male model is the gold standard for masculine beauty.

The characters in these stories run the gamut, from the billboard-gracing Aiden in Cynthia Hamilton's "Big Picture," to life models in drawing classes, to runway models, to ordinary guys immortalized in a catalog shoot in T. Hitman's "When Gary Met Larry." They hook up with artists, photographers, roommates and lovers, in locations from New York to Miami to a beach in Australia, and many places in between.

One thing all the male models here have in common is sex appeal and a yen for man-on-man action. These aren't the kind of guys who say, "look but don't touch" -- they want to be touched, and in all the right places!

Sexy Sailors

sexy sailors 300 The British poet John Masefield wrote, "I must go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky." That poem expresses the yearning so many men have, to strike out for unknown waters in tall ships steered by stars. There's a romance to the water-borne life that comes from our longing to see new ports and to challenge ourselves in new ways.

From mariners on huge yachts to river boatmen to recreational boaters, the combination of men and water is irresistible. All the guys in this collection have all fallen under the spell of the open water, and when you read their stories, you will, too. You'll sail from the canals of Britain to the crystal-blue tides of the Caribbean, from the ancient walled cities of Croatia to the San Francisco of the Gold Rush, and to many ports of call in between.

Masts, yardarms, jack lines -- the language of sailors seems tailor-made for men who love men. Who hasn't admired a naval officer in his dress whites, or a lithe, tanned young man skimming across the water in control of a huge sail? And the water provides a convenient way to get men into (or out of!) tiny bathing suits as well.

The sexy sailors in this collection run from college boys seeking boyfriends to naval officers to older yachties with silver flecks in their hair. There are lots of well-worked muscles grinding winches to set and control sails, steer from the helm, or tack to starboard as these stories veer from history to fantasy to present-day action.

Beach Bums

beach bums 300 There's something so sexy about a beach-and the men who hang around it. Whether it's on the ocean, a lake, or a New Zealand river, beaches mean water and sunshine and handsome guys showing off what God or genetics gave them.

Pick any beach around the world, and you're bound to find excellent eye candy. These gorgeous guys are the stuff of gay fantasy-from sleek swimmers to muscular surfers and boarders to sun-worshipping naturists. Their skins are toned golden brown, and their bodies shimmer with droplets of water.

The stories in this collection showcase those beach bums. From a Massachusetts winter to a hot Oregon summer, tropical St. Maarten to Venice's Muscle Beach, sweethearts and strangers meet for love, seduction and sex to the accompaniment of the crashing surf. Younger guys, older guys, beach volleyball players and bodybuilders-they're all hot and they're all here.

Active Duty

active duty 300 With the repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell, the military is changing, and there's no more need for gay servicemen to stay in the closet. No more furtive encounters in restrooms, no more angst about the loss of a career for a single indiscretion. Instead, consider the supply clerk who displays a rainbow flag discreetly on his desk. The lieutenant who can now march in a pride parade in his dress whites. The drill sergeant who no longer has to tolerate anti-gay epithets.
What’s sex like when jarheads, bird colonels and platoon daddies don’t have to hide any more? When medics, jet jockys, and PFCs can be proud of their military service?

Take This Man

take this man 300 When the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) was struck down by the Supreme Court, I was inspired to create an erotic anthology focused on committed couples. Many erotic stories focus on the thrill of first contact, but I wanted to do something different, taking a close look at how much sexier an encounter can be when the two men involved have been together for long enough to make a commitment to each other. Formalized or not, the fact remains that knowing what turns your partner on — and vice versa — makes encounters even hotter, especially when the erotic encounter is an expression of an emotional bond.
