Watch Me Entertain Myself!

Sacha Guitry once said, "You can pretend to be serious, but you can't pretend to be witty." Oh yes, I'm the great pretender.

Foreword As Foreplay

“This is a collection of blog entries featuring my bathhouses experiences. I blogged about them because the incidents had funny, memorable or out-of-the-ordinary moments that lifted them above the usual hot-steamy-sex-then-forget-about-him-and-go-home experiences one has in such places.

So why this book? This collection has a lot of sex in it, and I think sex should have a lot more humor in it. Or rather, people should have a more relaxed view of sex. Sex can be as sacred or as sleazy as one wants it to be. Let us not put it on a pedestal, nor hide it inside our closets. Let us celebrate. Let us have safe fun. And what’s safer than reading about sex?”


The abovementioned paragraphs are excerpts from the foreword I wrote for a book project I have with Grey Matter Publishing. It’s a compilation of all of my bathhouse episodes from The McVie Show, from the first season to the latest. It is currently being edited by no less than the Raymond Lee, celebrated screenwriter and author.

The bathhouse book is just one of several that Grey Matter will publish as their opening salvo into the fray that is the publishing world. Another is a book by Chronicles of E, and a third is a collection of letters sent to Migs, the Manila Gay Guy. Excited much? But wait, there’s more! They are also coming out with a fourth book project, a compilation of stories about first-time sexperiences of guys with other guys.

So I just wanted to whet your appetite for things to come. I hope you all support not just my book but the other books as well from Grey Matter. Let us all support pink printing!

Love the foreword.

If the entries are half as candid and smart, this should be a refreshing and interesting read.

Congrats, McVie.
