Jagger’s Revolution: The 10 Year Anniversary. Trashy Beach Reads.
Posted by Kevin Hunter
It was ten years ago this week in November 2006 that my first official book came out, “Jagger’s Revolution”. Before my spiritually based books, I was writing about love, dating, sex, and relationships.
“Jagger’s Revolution” is an uncensored look at actual events that took place in my life. It is semi-autobiographical and loosely based, but for the most part about 85% of it did indeed take place. I had no reservations or fear that readers would be reading about me having sex. It’s my job to be cracked open when writing.
It has also been interesting to read the notes coming in from readers from all walks of life about it since then. Many growing wet or visibly nervous realizing they shouldn’t be reading this kind of a book out in the open as they’re having a physical reaction. Mothers part of the PTA to teenagers who are way too young to be reading this kind of trash anyway.
Every character is real and came out of composites of friends and lovers of mine. With some of them, I merged more than one into that character. The main love interest is a composite of three real people in my life. Before it came out, I explained to the core circle that they were treated like Kings in it. In the end, no one had any complaints and were excited and flattered they were used at all.
Jagger is ultimately a piece of my personal history, it’s also a love story on both a romantic and friendship level, even though it is “pornographic” in some places. I see the merging of physical expressions of love just as important as love itself.
Some of the racier content caused some problems behind the scenes with the distributor who gave me ultimatums. Basically, “change certain lines or we’re not putting it out”. “You can’t say that as it’s considered illegal. It’ll create issues.” They revisited that again a few years ago after the spiritual books started coming out where I had to spend hours on the phone negotiating or arguing with them over certain lines of dialogue. Some expressed concern that I would allow myself to associate the spiritual stuff with the sex stuff. That’s never been on my radar. I am all about both and have nothing to hide. There’s room for all facets of me, both the light and dark.
Some amusing and interesting trivia: In the Jagger book I say “cock” 80 times, but in my first spiritual book I say “God” 80 times. I once said I went from Sex to God, sometimes offending others by merging the two. Althea Flynt wouldn’t let Larry Flynt do that in Hustler magazine at one point, although he did manage to sneak both themes in anyway at times.
“I hate reading, but this was the first book I actually finished all the way through since High School. It was great.”
“Wow! I just read Jagger’s Revolution. Hot! Yum! It’s almost like a jerk off reading.”
“This book rocked my soul truly. I loved it.”
“I just finished reading Jagger’s Revolution and wow!!!! YOU can write anything and it’s good!!! Loved the adventure to getting to Garth, and all the in betweens! It also gave me an inside look into how two guys are together, which I never knew about in this way and it was very interesting! Same emotions and everything as a regular couple and I pretty much figured that they would be, but never really read anything like this before…. great book!”
“It is hot over here and that book of yours only inflames things more.”
“This book was making me moist. I had to put it down because I was on a plane. It was embarrassing.”
“Jagger’s Revolution was a beautiful story.”
“I finished reading Jagger’s Revolution. I almost felt guilty reading some of it. I was trying to come at it from an analytical perspective, but I couldn’t help but become secretly aroused by Jagger and his friends.”
“This book sort of gave me a ‘Rebel Without a Cause” feel, but with a lot more penetration. That wasn’t a bad feeling.”
“Got your “Jagger’s Revolution” book! Realized I needed to read this one “alone” with no one around me. Just by flipping through some pages… Oh my! yup, definitely alone.”
“I love Jagger tearing around the corner. That guy is so hot. I want one.”
“If the author did a book signing do you how many people would be slipping him their phone numbers after reading this?”
“It’s the adult version of Rainbow books.”
“The part about dates being for sex is crude, but true.”
“I read your book and I would get hard, then I get flaccid, then hard again. You say something that makes you stop and think, then it switches gears and I’d get hard again.”
“Eww you have sex with girls in your book. Yuck! But the Billy sex! Mmm! Instant hard on reading.”
“I read your book and it was really good by the way.”
“Wow Jagger’s Revolution was kind of a gay book, but with a sex and the city edge. Loved it!”
“Crawling under the sheets is an expression loosely used to describe that instance where you bare all, but you took it one step further with this book.”
“Nice transition at the coffee shop into Slade. I heard the voicemail beep and it was Slade. I had to read to find out who he is!!”
“I wish I could have this author for a boyfriend.”
“Wow!!!! I recommend this book to everyone from start to finish you will enjoy the ride it is a very captivating story of Jagger looking for the love of his life, a man ready to settle down and he meets a lot of frogs along the way while silently crushing on Garth the hot Australian lifeguard, in between Jagger spends time with his friends who lift him up and writing about each disastrous moment in his column, this is quite an interesting summer for Jagger as he searches for his Prince and Happily Ever After.”
“Love your book!! Awesome erotic stuff 🙂 but you prob get that a lot.”
“Was impressed by the books eloquence and passion.”
“Had a two hour flight. I began to read the book, and then when I got to the last few chapters of Garth and Jagger’s love story and their spiritual and sexual chemistry! Man! That romantic letter by Garth to Jagger. I was so moved by it that by end of my flight I was teary and craving for love. Felt so romantic after so long.”
” When you say gay friendships missing morality and loyalty. Kevin, you are right I agree.”
“Billy and Jagger. Hot scene Kevin. I had visuals”
“I really resonate with your philosophy to be a dude who loves other dudes in their whole body-mind-spirit existence.”
“I bought the Kindle edition of your book ! I F**KING LOVE IT!”
“I have read Jagger’s Revolution and man was it a ride! It had little snippets of different genres, some romance, some erotica, some drama, some spiritual, and some suspense. The trajectory of the author’s personality was evident in this novel. I am extremely fond of the chapter with Sage, because it was so magical yet heartbreaking. Jagger and Sage were so good for each other, but now it can never be! I was really heartbroken by that. The chapter about the borderline bipolar sufferer who Jagger broke up with over text really pissed me off, because Jagger wasted so much time and energy on that guy. But the tension between Jagger and Garth is something I can relate too. Against all odds they finally meet after so much anticipation! It took me 24 hours to finish this book and I was intrigued every second.”
