It was not a good day for Ben. He’d stumbled upon the sight of his best friend, Digger, in the sack in their shared university dorm room with his girlfriend, Stacey, who had put off his own advances because she was “saving herself for marriage.” Then suite mate J. D. both lets Ben know that Digger and Stacey had been going at it all semester and then comes on to Ben himself. Confusion sets in when Ben realizes that he was more attracted to Digger than to Stacey when he’d seen them in the act. Ben doesn’t know for sure who he wants, but he is soon put on the spot when Digger calls for a beach trip to his parents’ Nags Head vacation house for the whole gang. Ben doesn’t want Digger and Stacey going to the beach without him, but he doesn’t have the money for the trip.
Enter older gym buddy Clint with an interesting business proposition to help Ben earn his traveling money, a proposition that only adds to the pressures and confusions Ben has fallen prey to.

“So, what’s the business deal, Clint?” He really had me wondering here.
Clint paused for a minute, picked up his beer, took a swig and put the beer can back, and repositioned his hand. Then he posed the killer question in a low, husky voice. “Ever done it with a man before, Ben?”
I was shocked and getting a little shaky. But I guess I shouldn’t have been surprised. Those workouts in the gym; Clint had looked me over pretty good and sometimes I felt he had his hands on me when he was spotting me, a little longer and more personally than I thought was necessary. I had never said anything about it, because I guess I found him attractive and I had gotten a little electric charge out of the attention and touches. I noticed the type of guy he gravitated to at the gym—only the best-looking hunks.
“No.” I managed.
I could hear his breathing get heavier. He seemed excited that I hadn’t done it with a guy before—or at least said I hadn’t. Maybe it made no difference to him as long as I said I hadn’t. But I hadn’t, in fact. Nothing beyond thinking about it lately.
Now I was thinking about Digger, though. Feeling guilty that my thoughts went directly to Digger, but beginning to accept that I’d like to do it with Digger. And there was J. D., who I knew wanted to do it with me, and who was a real in-shape hunk—and black. Since I’d seen him in the shower room with Payne, I’d had fantasies about black skin on white. But actually do it? “No,” I repeated, determined, “and if this . . .”
“We can make this very easy for you, Ben. I have no idea how much money you need, but we can discuss this in terms of levels, and I’ve got lots of money to invest. You can stop it at whatever comfort and need level you want. Doesn’t that sound fair and attractive?”
