01) Michael Jackson’s Dangerous Liaisons: Arvizo, Barnes, Bhatti, Chandler, Culkin… The A-Z of All the King’s Boys Kindle Edition

“Michael Jackson’s Dangerous Liaisons is the perfect follow-up to Leaving Neverland. Whereas Dan Reed’s stunning TV documentary homed in on the megastar’s intense “love affairs” with just two young boys, this new e-book version of Carl Toms’ masterpiece gives a staggeringly wider, deeper and fuller picture. Toms introduces us to more than a score of Michael’s young friends – including over a dozen boys who were clearly in “special” relationships. In addition to the most well known names, such as Macaulay Culkin, Jordie Chandler, Wade Robson and Jimmy Safechuck, we meet many others (including a couple of young princes Michael wooed, one German, one British!) in the course of a comprehensive survey that amounted to a massive 624 pages in the print edition.

Carl Toms spent many years researching the megastar’s ‘boy-love’. He delves deeply into the sources of Michael’s enigmatic identity, soul and genius while keeping a sceptical eye on the assumptions and values of the King’s detractors. Toms’ is the only book to examine thoroughly Michael’s trial on child abuse charges without losing sight of the increasingly well documented but surprisingly little known or understood facts about earlier allegations. It exposes the falsity of persistent efforts to whitewash the record by inventing for Michael a phoney ‘normal’, or ‘plain vanilla gay’, sexuality. The author probes Michael’s intense identification with Peter Pan, the eternal boy, acknowledging the profound significance of this attachment but discarding the welter of dated Freudian psychobabble it has spawned. Refusing to settle for the easy clichés about Michael’s ‘lost childhood’, Toms examines groundbreaking research into intimate man-boy contacts in order to illuminate the real nature of Michael’s ‘dangerous liaisons’ and the surprising challenge they present to our moral certainties.

Reviews:

“The most engaging, informed, and generous-hearted book we have on the subject or are likely ever to have. I recommend this book strongly.”
Professor James R Kincaid, University of Southern California

“Hard to put down, despite its heft. The style is conversational, engaging, and inviting. It read almost like a mystery story in parts; I couldn’t wait to find out how the next part would be resolved.”
Dr Pega Ren, sexologist

“It’s fantastic…a tome of astute analysis.”
Desirée Hill, specialist blogger on Michael Jackson

“Toms tells the story… in all its larger-than-life drama and tragedy, with the pace of a natural storyteller. This book kept me gripped throughout….”
Vitaly, Amazon customer review

“…fascinating, challenging and discomfiting. Anyone wanting to understand Michael Jackson will need to read it.”
J. Michael Bailey, professor of psychology, Northwestern University”

I purchased a physical copy of this book, soon after it’s release…and it was a captivating read [which I still owe a long overdue book review for].

This Kindle edition only costs five dollars, U.S…which is a phenomenal value.

If you at all appreciate level headed, honest assessments of intergenerational man/boy love…then please support this work, with a purchase of it.

I understand the author is taking a substantial loss, in offering his work at such a low price…It would be good, if we all chipped in and showed our appreciation.

This is my second purchase of the book…and I’m happy to do so, as I think this will help me get on with a second reading of it…which I need, before I can do a competent book review…because it’s been so long, since I’ve read it.

I’m looking forward to my second reading…and greatly recommend this book.

‘Where to Find the Links’ – And a Facelift for the OLF Welcome Page…


Cork_Board
….

Date: March 04, 2019

I finally gave Our Love Frontier’s Welcome Page a facelift, and an update.

I’ve also more directly addressed one of the issues, which sometimes comes up on this blog…creating a recording to explain things…which I’ve embedded into it’s own section of the Welcome Page…and included in the OLF Audio Message Forum, on the righthand side of this blog.

For those unaware…the primary links I am responding to [or giving as citation] are hyperlinked via a small graphic…It may be a button…a jewel…a spinning ball…

I chose to do this, because sometimes web URLs get very long…and I’ve been blogging for so many years, that I’ve simply gotten tired of fussing with them so they don’t disrupt the structure of the blog post [ie: keep running on, way off the side of the screen]…and the obscenely long URLs just plain look ugly, in my opinion.

The URLs are concealed behind some sort of small graphic, next to a 01) ‘Link Title Here’.

This is how I do things, here…

As a rule…if I bring over links out of things I’m quoting, I just link them as they appear in the original quote.

Finding the Links:

This information has always been available at the Welcome Page, in the audio welcome message…But, it’s 13 minutes long, and a lot of people apparently don’t like listening to it.

I confess…the recording is a bit wordy, and slightly rambling at points…but for all the information it imparts, it’s also fairly compact for an orientation to this blog.

Hopefully, I’ve still got the raw text I used to create this file…pretty sure I do…Eventually, I plan on redoing that recording…slimming it down, and leaving out the “noise machine” intro and outro…

I hope todays work has helped things run more smoothly, around here.

– Steve
