I awoke one morning from uneasy dreams to find my penis had transformed itself into a vagina …

Thus begins the story of a very unusual day in the life of one utterly baffled gay man. After the shock wears off about his new genitalia, this promiscuous, fun-loving gay man wonders how he can take advantage of his bizarre gift. Bagging a straight man is the first thing that comes to mind. Well, actually bagging whole battalions of straight men …

There’s only one problem: while he now has his very own love taco, he has none of the customary toppings to go with it. Enter Pete Thickwhistle, friend and drag artist extraordinaire.

Pete quickly sets about making his friend’s appearance go from butch man to convincing female as fast as you can say “Max Factor.” Rick, now Rickie, sets off on his quest for straight-man flesh. Little does he know that what awaits is not his lust’s desire, but his heart’s. Rickie finds that when you go out looking just for sex, you may end up with something a lot more substantial …

My View:

I read Man-amorphosis years ago when it was put out by a different publisher so I when I saw it was available again I absolutely had to read it again to see if it was as funny and enjoyable as it originally had been.

I am happy to say it was.

This is a different take on The Metamorphosis a novella written by Franz Kafka and published in 1915. In this story a gay man wakes up to find his penis gone and in it’s place is a vagina. Yes, an actual love taco. (That’s just one hilarious term used in this story.)

The tale follows the man on his quest to look like a woman so he can seduce a straight man and experience what it’s like.

Yeah, it’s not the most believable story but I don’t think it’s meant to be. This story made me laugh out loud several times.

I haven’t felt such a dizzying mix of nausea and pleasure since I was twelve years old, when the similar manual exploration of my private parts resulted in watching my purple helmeted warrior vomit up a copious amount of love juice all over my family’s living room burnt orange shag carpeting.

A short read and it’s pure fun.
