“What do you want to talk about?”

Tyler thought for a moment then answered, “Sexual fantasies.” They hadn’t had that conversation yet. Not in any detail anyway.

“Okay.” Duncan sounded a little dubious. “You can go first then. Seeing as it’s your idea.”

“God. I have loads… where to start? Okay, one of mine is deflowering a Catholic priest or a monk or something—someone who’s taken a vow of celibacy, but in the fantasy I’m so hot they can’t resist me.” Tyler’s cheeks heated at the admission, but somehow it was easier having this conversation in the dark when Duncan couldn’t see his face. “Another is having sex in public…. Not in the park or something—that would be a bit skeevy—but somewhere people have come expecting to see it, like a live sex show. Or maybe being in porn, knowing that people were watching me and jerking off watching me fucking someone else…. That would be hot.” He stopped because Duncan hadn’t reacted. “Well? It’s your turn now.”

“I feel really boring in comparison,” Duncan said. “Your imagination is wild.”

Tyler chuckled. “Yeah… well I was a late starter in the practical side of things. Didn’t even kiss a guy till I was seventeen, so I spent a lot of time wanking in my bedroom thinking about stuff like that. Anyway, come on. There must be something you fantasise about. It doesn’t have to be something you actually want to do for real. I don’t think I’ll ever actually shag a priest or make a porno, but it’s fun thinking about it. It turns me on.” He wriggled a little closer to Duncan, pressing his thickening cock against the curve of his arse and combing his fingers through the hair on Duncan’s chest.

He waited for Duncan to respond, and the silence stretched out long enough to get a little awkward.

“Hey, you don’t have to if you’re not comfortable sharing,” Tyler said. Suddenly he was worried. Maybe Duncan was into something really kinky? Maybe Tyler didn’t want to know what his fantasies were. “Don’t worry about it, we can—”

“I think about being fucked.” Duncan’s voice was quiet, a deep rumble that vibrated in his chest under Tyler’s hand.

Surprise hit Tyler at the admission. It wasn’t what he’d expected to hear from Duncan at all. But he didn’t react, waiting for him to elaborate. But he didn’t, so Tyler prompted, “And?”

“That’s it.” Duncan took a deep breath, his ribs expanding under Tyler’s arm. “I’ve never bottomed. But I… I fantasise about it. About being fucked by another guy.”


What a fun, flirty read! Jay Northcote pens a short full of sexual fantasy and exploration that will give you pause to consider your own innermost wants and desires. Not to mention she masterfully incorporates one of my favorite m/m sex elements:  the unexpected flip-flop.  Don’t ask why that one always stands out for me. Maybe because there’re so many times it feels contrived or insincere? I can honestly say Northcote does it well, and never once did I question whether either guy’s heart was in it.

Perhaps even better than the well-written erotic content is seeing the early stages of budding romance between Duncan and Tyler. They’re so sweet! Despite the abbreviated length of the story, Northcote’s expert writing builds a connection and solid foundation for them. We get a bit more backstory than I typically expect in a short, so I didn’t feel like I was simply watching a singular scene play out, making this a much more fulfilling read all-around.

I’m very thankful to Jay Northcote for contacting us to read the story that kicks off The Secrets Collection. If the all of these shorts will be anything like Top Me Maybe?, you won’t want to miss a single one.  I’m already counting down the days until Posy Roberts’ story releases!
