Summary
"In one of the first books to examine machismo from the perspective of Latin American and Latino men, Chris Girman relies on a combination of ethnographic research and personal experience to explain how macho men - men like the author himself - regulate and sustain same-sex erotic encounters. Girman incorporates his own sexual experiences with a variety of Latin men into the book, infusing his writing with the unique perspective and description that can only be related by someone who has lived the research he writes about." "This groundbreaking multidisciplinary text examines a variety of Latin America's most recent attempts to categorize macho sexuality from sociological, anthropological, literary, and psychological perspectives"--Jacket
