Download the first five chapters here. (One more than available on Amazon, including the massive fetish party Snax in copious detail.)
Today’s Berlin is Europe’s gayest city where Friday parties last well into Monday. Yet, to get here, Berliners inflicted and struggled through the 20th century’s greatest tragedies. Four men, too witty for their own good, inflict their own tragic comedies, and learn that the party’s only fun when earned through the struggle.
Kay is a Canadian in a corporate job. He struggles for a fabulous European life, but fabulous and monogamous are uneasy bedfellows. Alex is an American with a trust fund. No responsibility means freedom to hop from one fantasy to the next until family obligation ensnares – or saves. Thomas is a German student from a small town whose confidence swells while studying in the sinful capital. But can he keep this from slipping into arrogance, or even violence? Timothy is a British entrepreneur and drawn to Berlin not for tax breaks, but for the city’s men. How could anything bad ever happen to a man who thinks with his penis – or for this power bottom, prostate?
Ba has lived in Europe for more than a decade, and calls Berlin home. Naked Berlin invites you to the party replete with bubbly Sekt. Prost!

***** THE gay Berlin book
Naked Berlin describes how gay Berlin is today: full of sex, drugs, parties, flying high then crashing, and told through young expats with their witty perspectives on Germany and German life. I devoured the book in three days. The story is fast, filled to the brim with fun, international, sad, hopeful, lonely, drunk, in love, pornographic, and young. Like gay Berlin.

Compelling narrative, evocative descriptions, emotionally intense, raw, and honest. Naked Berlin beautifully conveys the mix of emotions, vulnerabilities, fears, and hopes in a sex-crazed city.
