Page 293: “This is the only butt that matters in our relationship. No other butts, okay?” …I laugh. I grab his ass stiffly, trying to be as coolly seductive as he is, feeling awkward and foolish instead. “Except for this butt,” I say…I melt into his arms. I want him so bad. I want him to ravish me, I let him put a hand down my pants, feeling the smoothness of my skin in his palms.

Page 319: I grab Saadi by the collar of this blue Lacoste polo and I pull him close to me, and I make out with him, It’s furious. Our tongues explore each other. Then his hands are all over me, up the shiny fabric of the purple dress I designed for this party, on my thighs. His breath is heavy, and his hips are thrusting urgently.

Page 337: “Where did you get a porno magazine?” I ask.…Art laughs. He squeezes my thigh. “Oh Reza. My innocent Reza. The first time I read a porn, I was twelve. I found my dad’s stash of Penthouse and Playboy magazines in the back of his closet. Playboy was pretty much useless to me. But Penthouse has these sex stories in them, and they were very hot because there were men in them.” I find myself getting hard, and he moves his hands to my crotch, “Just covering up the evidence,” he says with a smile…”Maybe you could…read those stories to me someday. You can’t get AIDS from story time.” …He laughs, “Any day you want.” He squeezes my erection.
