    Ian Bravestone's book is not only tastefully erotic, but stunning: various poetry describes the longing of men, the beauty of bodies and their coupling, and the exquisite details of sex. Bravestone himself is a conservative Christian, so all the poetry and the pictures honor sex as the gift from God that it is; nothing gratitious, homosexual, or tasteless is ever shown. The poetry and pictures are honest and completely sexually revelatory without ever hinting at pornography. The pictures, while showing naked couples in often explicit positions, do not ever show actual sex taking place and are often shaded and glazed by what appears to be a glass-like substance (so no body parts are shown in too much detail). All the photos are black and white, with gorgeous couples draped and entwined with each other in a silent love dance. This book had an effect for me that was a little similar to the one "Planet Earth" had: they both gave the sense of gazing on something Divine and... More > sacred, presented in a flawless manner. If you are not at all prudish or offended by naked art and/or sexual poetry, I highly recommend this piece to you!< Less

More > believability by way of his stripped-down, pragmatic style. Bravestone's powerful and popular work possesses an emotive amplitude and universal appeal. 28 Mar 2007 by Kyle Pimenta Taste the Textures is a very singular glimpse into the realm of male sexuality and eroticism. Bravestone's unique perspective is for the contemporary reader an introduction to a paradigm of sensuality and romanticism at once liberating and refining. The idea of a very free and real connection between the sensual nature and the spiritual translates beautifully through titillating verse and tatseful imagery. -- Kyle Pimenta 8 Mar 2007 (updated 8 Mar 2007) by J.
