Michael Luongo is the author of Sensual Travels: Gay Erotic Stories:
Whether traversing desert sands, steamy jungles, or the urban playground: these are the erotic encounters of men willing to roam. Stories that pack a sexual punch, and carry with them the resonance and character of their locations. e writers in this book relive and relish their past adventures; for the reader, each chance encounter is something brand new, as fresh and exciting as it was on the day it happened years ago on a continent far away.
Michael Luongo is the author or editor of over a dozen books, mostly concentrating on travel and he was the founding editor of Haworth Press’s Out in the World series on LGBT travel literature. His travels have taken him to over 80 countries and all 7 continents, including to the war zones of Iraq and Afghanistan. The New York Post’s Page 6 gossip notes called him a gay Salman Rushdie for his work on gay issues in these areas. His writing has appeared in the New York Times, Philadelphia Gay News, Bloomberg News, Gay City News, National Geographic Traveler, the Christian Science Monitor and many other publications. He is also the NLGJA – National Lesbian and Gay Journalist Association’s 2013 Journalist of the Year. Michael lives in New York, and part time in Buenos Aires, though he is more often in many other parts of the world. More on all his work is at www.michaelluongo.com.
