During the latter part of that stay, the World Wide Web burst upon us all. Fascinated with the opportunities it provided, I learned the versions of HTML code used at the time and became one of the first web designers in the region, developing – and in some cases, managing – web sites for customers throughout Asia, Australia/New Zealand and even Europe and the Americas.My favorite of all projects during that period was a gay adult web site called ManPowr – later changed to Asia ManPix after the ManPowr domain was hijacked. It was a monthly photo magazine featuring Asian men in all their natural glory. Early in the year 2000, we started publishing an erotic story each month about gay experiences in Southeast Asia. Occasionally we didn’t have a contributor’s story to print and I would have to dig into my fertile imagination and create one. I often referred to mail, email or bar conversations where someone wrote or told me about their ‘first time’ experiences. The stories included here are from five such sources. In creating the stories, I have used writer’s license and a bit of naughty imagination to turn them into fiction, but the source information from which they were created is based upon real life experiences. They are:Porno PeteTony was forced to become a Porn Actor to help pay off debts to both Malaysian and Thai gangsters, but soon found out that his ‘boytoy’ had a mind of its own – and was an exhibitionist – making him a Star.If you were into Asian gay porn movies back in the early 1980s, you’ve probably seen at least one of the flicks that this hot guy and his gorgeous boyfriend made during that era. Now retired, they live outside of Bangkok.A Letter to Jerrold‘Jerrold’ learns how much fun it can be to take part in a ‘wilderness’ experience when hunky Thai soldiers are involved.His name is fictitious, but the successful novelist portrayed in this story was born and raised in the Philippines. He moved to Bangkok, then to Chiang Mai where I met him, visited with him and his menagerie for several days and heard the tale that resulted in this story.Pet TeacherNaughty student seduces sexy teacher.I met the American and his Chinese-Malaysian lover who are written about in this short tale while on a trip to Kuala Lumpur. They had written me at the ManPowr email address and invited me to contact them whenever I was in town. I heard their tale over too many beers one evening. Names, of course, have been changed, but the story line hasn’t.Slammer-banged New YearGetting your cherry plucked in a jail cell on New Year’s Eve is probably not the best way to be introduced to gay life.I attended a New Year party at the home of this terrific Thai couple in 2001. We became friends and I learned their story. Names, dates and other facts have been changed to protect their identity, but the basic story is pretty much how it was told to me.Brothers, Lovers and Lovers of BrothersYounger step-brother seduces older and then the fun begins.The outlines of this story came to me by mail. After writing my version, I visited the sender and his brother in Singapore where they approved the story – and the changes I had made to protect their identity and that of their friends.For your information, Singapore and Malaysia are two of the places on Earth where adults of the same gender can be charged and imprisoned for engaging in consensual sex.All of these stories were written by me and published online in the Asia ManPix web magazine between 2000 and 2004.
