Sex vs Sport
DNA: What was your intention when you started writing? Kaleb Cove: One of the things that struck me from the beginning was how cheeky sports are. I mean, goalmouth, spreader bar and going for it were just asking to be played with. Compiling a sex manual that was informative, playful and sexually loaded seemed like the best way to go about achieving that. Have you tried all the positions yourself ? Of course, I love to do all my own stunts! Every one of the drawings was illustrated from photos taken during the course of researching the positions. I’ve since gone on to experiment with not just these positions but a lot more that have come about in the heat of the moment thing sex seems to be all about. Are you a sports fan or sports fetishist? I love sports, but perhaps not in a typical way. As for the fetishism – I think there’s a bit of that in all of us. The concept is highly erotic in what it says about what gets each of us off. My take is that any of us would be hard-pressed not to look twice at a hot young thing wearing nothing but knee-high socks, just lying there and staring up at you while playing with his long, hard baseball bat. Which are the sexiest sports for you? A great round of any sport, like any great round of sex, is timeless. Personally, sun, sand and sex are on par with everything that being Down Under has always been about. Any sport that involves getting wet in the process will do it for me. And who doesn’t like to peel off a dripping wetsuit? Isn’t that what wetsuits were made for? When was the first time you clocked sport as being something that turned you on sexually? High school was where the sexual intrigue went off on a sport-fuelled tangent of its own. It was the teenage basketball captain who made my hormones race. He pushed my mind straight into the sports-driven sex gutter. Read the basketball chapter to get a bit more personal with what actually went on. Have you fulfilled any of your sports sex fantasies? High school water polo, speedos and hitting the showers afterward. Also the twins on the basketball team with their identical asses. And of course that day a footy player’s long, hard ego found its way wrapped around every one of my dirty thoughts. These days, I won’t say there aren’t a few pairs of knee-high socks that sometimes find themselves wrapped around a certain athletic teammate or two… Did you approach publishers with the book idea? How did they react? Is that why you’re independently publishing? Publishing has changed a lot and these days everyone is self-publishing, recording artists and authors alike. At the moment, the books
are being adapted into several languages including German, Japanese, Polish, Spanish and Portuguese. And everything I’d like to do with the Kaleb Sutra is going to be best achieved by managing my own brand and evolving set of ideas. Most young gay people don’t get sex education at school like straight kids do. Was that your experience? All self-discovery was done late at night on the internet when the parental unit wasn’t around. So yeah, that’s the extent of my sex education; it’s pretty lame when you think about it. Times have changed and the reality is that all teenagers deserve greater awareness. That shouldn’t be determined by sexuality. Does porn have a role in sex education? Porn has a large role in every teenager’s life and should play a bigger role in a healthy sexual education. It should provide some clarity to the potential of what sex involves and the good, clean fun it can offer. Increasingly, we’re told gay men are choosing not to use condoms. What’s your take on this? There’s no soapbox that’s going to suggest not using a condom is the right thing to do, but what no one is talking about is the regular testing that’s needed, the oral sex that condoms don’t really address and the quick response solutions that should be present in the world today.
Being responsible is more than just being safe, and it’s high time we all stepped up to the plate. All good sportsmen knows their stats. Do you know yours?
