Peter London describes navigating the treacherous domains whilst searching for the perfect long term monogamous relationship candidate.

Species of Guy and Other Party Tales gives fairly amusing details of the various traits, as well as the lack of ethics of some gay men. However, these descriptions could apply to any single man or woman. The narration reminds me of a stand-up comedy act.

The rating of Graphic: meaning high level of sensuality, detailed love scenes, graphic description of anatomy and of sexual acts did not match. The storyline simply did not live up to my expectations based on the book’s rating.

Each chapter is an explanation of the titles such as The Northern Gay Cheating Rules; Thrust the Trust, The Candle Guys, The Waving Guy, The Phantom Guy, The Bullshit Guy and so on. Each episode is a lesson in ethics according to Peter. 

Species of Guy and Other Party Tales is, to some extent, enjoyable despite the fact that my interest was not fully engaged by the characters.
