A john hires Brad to live out his fantasy of killing a male prostitute and gets played. He posts his story so that others can avoid what happened to him. Even though the men are all playing with their lives, sleeping with Brad seems particularly alluring. Many of the men say Brad wanted them to kill him.

Brad is a bottom who likes it rough, loves BDSM. He writes well for a teenager and enjoys bantering back and for pleasantly with potential customers. They are paying and Brad knows how to accept (or take advantage of) the generosity of older men. He shares with one man that he needs to pay down debts to friends and can use seven thousand dollars. Of course he doesn't expect the guy to fork all of it over, but it would really make him feel better to know that he takes care of what he owes.

One by one people hear of Brad and how he gets down in bed. He's open to almost anything and guys who are married, bisexual, and gay all seem to want a piece of him. That is if you are judging by the amount of reviews relating specifically to Brad.

He has a tic that may or may not, be the result of drug use. If he isn't high when he arrives for his dates he certainly is soon after. They consume fifths and half gallons of liquor without the need for a glasses, ice, or opening conversations. Chugs and bed fill the orders.

Site members report that “Elaine” has known Brad since he was a kid and that he is mentally unstable. Someone shares what they were told by Elaine and site members compare notes. “He was high when he showed up. He liked it rough. I used my biggest dildos, I never came so hard.” They can't get enough. The more perverse the more they use Brad like an addict who has found the ultimate high. The johns never think they have a problem all the bad stuff is about Brad.

Elaine joins the site to speak for herself she's pregnant with Brad's child and he's locked up for solicitation. She makes a plea to the men who keep hiring him for sex to back off. Elaine reports that he is sixteen years-old and if he is going to have any chance of getting himself together he has to stop selling himself and being enticed by older men. He is on lock-down in Portland where he sees a therapist.

Elaine may want Brad for herself thinking that if he is getting professional help he'll be fixed. It is also possible that she is sincere in wanting him to simply be okay and that by offering people a chance to ask him questions he may be able to transition away from actually taking clients and having direct sex.

There is talk of porn being made where Brad is involved and most that have been with him agree that this could be totally possible. They are attracted to his youthful looks, his tolerance for pain, and his ways that many men describe on the site as “sweet”.

Elaine learns that she is a hot topic on the site and becomes Brad's spokesperson She offers to collect a hundred dollars per question for Brad's family to help with legal fees. She gets some takers. As Brad responds to questions around the murder of a “client” more information comes out about the array of different things he was into and how much he and his client's needed to seek help.

A site visitor named Zack writes the webmaster explaining that he needs to come clean. He has been impersonating Brad and his conscience is killing him. It appears the sought after Brad is both real and fantasy. It is hard to tell exactly who is being honest behind a computer screen. One thing is certain there are a lot of men willing to play Russian Roulette with their lives. The site isn't forced to shut-down during the murder investigation, Brad is locked up and life continues with men seeking men from the hottest and the best. The Internet and this site in particular make the need for bar hopping and hitting gay clubs all but obsolete.
Best part of story, including ending: I hated the format of this story and plot.

Best scene in story: My favorite scene involved Elaine saying that Brad was receiving therapy. I hope so!

Opinion about the main character: I disliked that Brad had no self-love or boundaries.
