The main character and narrator of Boy Culture calls himself X. He's a high-priced sex worker in Seattle, entering old age (mid-twenties) and awash in possibilities. He has two roommates, creating enough sexual tension to fill a bookshelf worth of romance novels. He also has a new client, an older man who wants to get to know his new rent boy before they fuck. Boy Culture has some honest soul-searching, some well-written comedic scenes, and some steamy sexuality, in a mix that works quite well.
