Interesting that Gordon Merrick was a bestselling author, despite the homophobia of his time.This was the hottest thing I could get my hands on at 13.It worked.
Set in the years running up to WWII, we find the Coslings acquiring and subsequently establishing themselves on a vast acreage beside the then undiscovered St Tropez. Stuart Cosling and his partner Helene hope to escape the rat-race of life in the USA and live closer to nature, raising their young son Robbie in their chosen idyllic seclusion. But much changes over the 1930 and little do they realise the change about to come upon St Topez, and that their acres will bring them great wealth and status. Nor do they realise what life has in store for their beautiful son Robbie.Initially raised and taught at home the sensitive and artistically inclined Robbie eventually attends school, but remains aloof and friendless, that is until the coslings charter and yacht and sail to Greece. Encouraged by his father Robbie befriends the young sailor on their yacht, and so begins Robbies realisation of all that had plagued him to date as the young sailor deflowers the innocent Robbie - to his confused disgust and delight. That is just the beginning of Robbie's new found sex life as he is taken in turn by young Greek sailors followed by a string of others who are bewitched by the beautiful young teenager, not to mention impressed by his massive endowment barely concealed In his shorts. Robbies loves every minute of it and cannot get enough, be his partner young or older.Alongside Robbie's increasingly complicated love life his parents have their own problems to deal with, and as the threat of war begins to hang over them matters become even more complicated. So there is much else besides Robbie's many sexual exploits, (in which nothing is left to the imagination, and erotic as they are thankfully they do not descend to the grunt by grunt, blow by blow descriptions common to much erotica today).Merrick's novel dates from the 1960s and although this shows a little in the at times overblown prose it still reads well. Those familiar with Merrick's writing will not be surprised that the male characters are almost exclusively handsome, mostly well endowed, and of course queer or if straight willingly that way inclined. Perfect Freedom offers a good read: likeable characters, intersting setting and an interesting plot, and lots of sex.
More good sexy trashy fun, with a bit more, from the dependable Gordon Merrick.
Very dated, but it's it's interesting to set it in the onslaught of WWII. The sailing trip to Greece was very evocative.
