What’s buzzing at NoShameInSex.com? Curious about what yours truly, Todd Vickers, has been stirring up lately? New Book!

Back Cover Text
After a year of the most erotic love of his life, James breaks up with Cindy, a woman who refused to be controlled. Cindy warned him that she was a ‘free spirit,’ but he didn’t know that meant she wanted OTHER lovers.
Now struggling, desolate, and angry, James turns to isolation and porn as a refuge. Tom, his best friend, drags him to a beach getaway with other men. When the talk turns to lovers, James is stunned to find his friend, Marlow, in an open marriage and his wife, Angi, currently on Maui with a lover. Cliff and Douglass boldly live non-monogamy, but Barry, Adolfo, and Andy reject it. Tom and Ranjeet sit on the fence.
James is forced to look into his shadow, while standing in the light of the other men’s experiences. He begins to question the bounds he enforced on his love. The stories of erotic venture and heartbreak shake the beliefs that James thought were bedrock and turn them to sand that slips through his fingers.
Burning in his passion for the woman he pushed away, his limits are tested. James must either hold on to old beliefs or dare to risk the unknown.
