I ran downstairs and out into the inner garden. I did not see Husni anywhere. I started calling the Persian’s name softly, so I wouldn’t wake the entire Household. I looked everywhere for him but he was nowhere to be found. I checked the shrubberies and behind the mansion walls, but no cat. As I neared the gazebo I saw a flicker of light. Thinking Husni might have gone inside the pavilion, I looked through one of the windows.
In the dim candlelit interior, I saw a sea of moving black fabric. As I stood watching, my eyes became adjusted to the semi darkness. To my surprise I saw two women in black burkas intertwined in a passionate embrace. Although their upper bodies were fully covered in black exposing only their faces, I could see flashes of soft brown skin where the burkas had been lifted above their naked thighs. The couple was making soft moaning noises. Their passionate noises told me a love story was currently unfolding in the heat of the Arabian night.
I was mesmerized by the sexuality before me, when suddenly I heard rustling footsteps approaching my way. I turned round and saw my Valet walking in my direction, looking for me. I quickly put a finger to my lips, gesturing to him to be quiet, and not make a sound. Seeing my signal of silence, he discarded his baghas (Persian slippers) and walked barefoot to my side. I pointed in the direction of the window, so he could observe the happening within the gazebo.
At first, he could not see what was unfolding, but as his eyes became adjusted to the dim light he also witnessed the women making love. We both looked at each other in amazement but kept completely quiet, not wanting to create any commotion and disrupt the passion.
The lovers lay on a comfortable sofa; one woman lifted the other's burka over her head. They wore nothing beneath their dark robes. I immediately recognized the naked lady as Khawlah, the Hadrah’s third wife, but I could not decipher who the other woman was, since she was still wearing her burka.
Khawlah parted the legs of the robed woman. She gently stimulated her with teasing fingers, before lowering her lips over her lover’s vulva, sucking and licking her. I had never seen two women making love before. I was in awe, and so was Andy.
Occasionally, we would turn to look at each other for a response. We were too stunned by the scenario to consider moving away.
Before long, Khawlah lifted the black robe from her lover. I could see clearly the face of the other woman, who was the beautiful Gharam; she was a cousin of Nasreen and Khawlah's lady-in-waiting. I had assisted each of them in the fashion makeover.
They were often spotted in each other’s company, although on the surface they seemed more like friends than lovers. I suppose they were much like Andy and me, portraying a picture perfect male friendship, yet we were lovers in private. In both cases, intimate companions and lovers were all rolled into one.
My Valet and I continued our voyeuristic endeavor. We were Peeping Toms. Both women were in their prime and their shapely naked bodies were delightful to behold. My lover and I wanted to see what lesbian sex was about, so we continued watching the two passionate women. For two gay boys, watching women making out was quite an educational experience. Before tonight, I had no idea what lesbians did when they performed the sex act. I did know that women could achieve multiple orgasms within short intervals. Our professors had taught us that in sex education classes. But I had never, in reality, witnessed women making love, until now.
To me, this looked like a very beautiful experience. Khawlah and Gharam reminded me of butterflies fluttering in and out of each other. With their dark cloaks intertwined around their smooth skin, they very much resembled a couple of monarch butterflies, fluttering in flights of fantasy. Andy and I were definitely enthralled watching the dancing lovers’ feminine responses. They were twirling and twisting to and fro from oral ecstasies which both performed enthusiastically.

From the back cover:
This provocative story is about a young man who was initiated into a clandestine sexual society. He was spirited to the Middle East, from his UK boarding school. He attended the Bahriji School (Oasis,) in The United Arab Emirates in preparation for serving in Harems for the wealthy and elite.
It is also a love story between the young man and his ‘Valet’ who served as his chaperone and mentor during the boy’s Harem service.
I had a privileged and unique upbringing in Malaysia, where I was known as a "sissy boy." Following in my brothers' footsteps, I was sent to an exclusive boarding school in England. It is there that I was inducted into a clandestine organization, E.R.O.S. The Enlightened Royal Oracle Society. For four years, unbeknownst to my family, I was willingly and happily part of a Harem.
My story has been kept under wraps for close to 45 years. The correct moment has arrived for me to make known my unique education.

What a reviewer said...
5 stars: I love a true story
I love a true story, particularly when the author is articulate and conveys meaning and emotion clearly. This tale involves the author's upbringing in a secret sexual society in which he dwelled as a member of a male harem. Though some may be shocked by the explicit sexual details, I felt that the author did a nice job of counterbalancing these moments with other, less shocking bits of his story. In particular, I enjoyed his educational experiences in fashion and of becoming a young man in a land far from his home, as well as his travels abroad in surely what, to some, might have been very unfortunate circumstances but the author makes it clear that he was not forced and chose to live this extraordinary life. It is difficult for some to grasp how this tale of servitude could be a love story, and yet it is. I don't want to give too much away! But, it's lovely to see that people can overcome things that happen to them and embrace themselves fully for who and what they are. If only everyone was as buoyant and resilient as this author, whose second through seventh book in the series will surely be on my "to read" shelf.
