(Boylove Documentary Sourcebook) - Ribald Pederastic Eroticism in a Poem by Abu Nuwas
From The Book of Abu Nuwas, translation and introduction by Paul Smith (Campbells Creek, Victoria: New Humanity Books–Book Heaven, 2015).
My penis, settled upon the backside of Sam’an...
it was wanting a two-sided kind of...hospitality.
I had never had a host that was better at hosting
than that backside of that boy Sam’an: honestly!
I turned into him...and if you had watched him,
anointing head of my horse by hand, handsomely.
I begged him to not let his hair fly from his head,
for...he was not going to be a whore, just for me!
Then he replied, “Stop asking me, just let it come
and rub under my balls, rub my pebbles...gently.”
He stayed the night, receiving gifts and favours,
near the pool, surrounded by the garden...lovely!
Back at his house, not even a fly could enter it...
it was guarded by my cock and his balls...tightly.
Upon the Day of Judgment I will be asked about
my pleasure in the house of Sam’an by the Almighty.
