Men of Violence…Men of Lust…the GLADIATORS were legendary as the sexual athletes of their age
78 A.D. Paris, a seventeen-year-old runaway, is loved for his beauty by the wealthy young Egyptian Lucius and by Publius, a member of the Praetorian Guard. Although he is the son of a free man, Paris is sold to the gladiator school of Pompeii by Lucius' father, the ambitious merchant Diogenes. As a sex slave to the hulking warriors of the arena - more beasts than men - Paris is forced to submit to their sadistic lusts. Only by satisfying them will he gain the chance to train as a gladiator himself and win his freedom.
Having matured into a skilful fighter, Paris is transferred to the Ludus Magnus, the great gladiator school of Rome, where he becomes one of the mightiest champions of the amphitheater. But here, in an age of sexual excess unequaled in the history of the world, Paris is drawn into the wild and violent life-style of a leading gladiator and risks losing everything he has fought for, including the man he really loves.
Gladiator School is MM+ - the ‘plus’ is searing hot gay SM erotica.
The Emperor rose, the white handkerchief in his hand. His eyes swept the arena, then tilted down to the two tiny figures immediately below him. The scrap of white silk fluttered from his hand towards the dirt of the ring.
“Paris, you must deliver the death blow,” Lucius insisted. “If not, we will both die.”
“Would you have killed me once you realised who I was?”
Lucius glanced away. “I robbed you of your life once. I could not do it a second time.” He turned his face up to Paris beseechingly: “Do it quickly. I will not feel it, coming from you. As though you were making love to me one last time.”
