Celebrated gay blogger Hans Fritschi has travelled extensively around Asia and his site is one of the leading online gay guides.
In this ground-breaking book, he shares with readers his experiences of gay life in Asia. Through the eyes of his flamboyant heroine Suzy Size who is based in Thailand, Hans describes the exotic encounters and erotic escapades of a modern gay traveller in Asia. Suzy Size chases after money boys and is 'herself' chased by sex hungry young men who go after older Western men. Or is it just their money? Suzy has many strange, absurd and hilarious encounters all over Asia.
