This posting of mine,#12729, incorrectly describes the story of Brian aka Bear as an autographical writing by Dennis Cooper. In truth, it is a piece of fiction by Dennis Cooper.<quoted text>
When I've discussed Cooper with my friends, a similar question is often raised - is there any evidence that Dennis Cooper ever has or ever would act out violent sexual fantasies with minors? People assume the answer to that must be no, but Cooper's own words prove them wrong. The following came from an entry on his first blog effort:
"Brian (nicknamed 'Bear' because he slept a lot) and I had a torrid affair during one summer vacation I spent on Maui. I was 16, he was 15. He was a jokey, class clown type surfer kid in public, but, when alone and stoned, he was a sex maniac with the wildest imagination I'd ever encountered to that point. Nowadays there are labels for guys like him --[CENSORED]- might begin to do the trick -- but back then he was indescribable, my own private Pandora's box. It was almost non-stop sex with him, both one-on-one and with a wide array of other young locals and tourists, including several s&m-ish three-ways with his thuggish older brother".
S&Mish three-ways with HIS THUGGISH OLDER BROTHER!
And the theme of the Better Life derived porn was...
Therefore, it would be incorrect to believe -(and I was wrong in suggesting)- that the story documents Cooper having acted out violent sexual fantasies with a minor. It does not.
