Biography

The single most important thing to me is that I’m a writer. Oh sure, I’ve done a lot of other things during my life, but none of those things mean as much to me as this does. However, I'm not trying to earn a living as a writer. All I really want is to have people read what I've written. That's why I have everything free.
I write erotica because I consider sex to be one of the most interesting and important parts of life. Not something dirty and shameful, but rather something that's capable of bringing great joy. Or, unfortunately, great sorrow, if used wrongly. I sometimes deal with that aspect of it also.
My Orgasm Incorporated Series is basically hardcore omnisexual erotica, partly Science Fiction, but mostly focused on sex of all kinds and descriptions.
My Rick&Jerry Series is gay male erotica, part romance and part adventure, with a large helping of hot sex added in for good measure.
I enjoy playing around with sex in my writing, especially in my Orgasm Incorporated Series. I deliberately try to turn sex upside down and inside out. I like to explore the limits of fantasies and try to figure out why they work. Sometimes I come up with things that aren't even possible in the real world, or if they are, they wouldn't feel good at all.
As for me personally, I worked in healthcare for much of my life, but I’m now retired, so I spend much of my spare time writing. I live in the Sunny South, not too far from the hurricane-ridden shores of North Carolina, along with my partner, my cat, and a longtime friend.
I can be contacted at KarlFive@suddenlink.net. I'm always glad to hear from my readers. And, of course, I'd greatly appreciate a review, if you enjoyed my ebooks.

Series

Rick&Jerry
The Rick&Jerry series is erotica, but it's meant for readers who also like to see something more than just sex. In each book, I intend to come up with differing ways that my protagonists can enjoy each others’ bodies, while at the same time adding psychological, emotional, and sometimes action/adventure on top of that.

It seemed that nothing was going to go right for me that day. I had finally made the decision to end it all and jump off the Neuse River Bridge. . . I glance at the pinewoods on either side of the road, the graceful branches spread with gossamer webs of shadow and dusk. Damn! Seeing it all for the last time seems to have turned me into a poet. The world has no right to be so beautiful. Not now.

Smashwords book reviews by Karl Five

  • Claimed By The Captain (gay historical bareback first time erotica) on May 25, 2015

    This is a great start for a series set in the days of the sailing ships. Very well written. I especially recommend it for those who would enjoy a nautical background for lots of gay sex.
  • Boy 90 on May 25, 2015

    Excellent story set in a dystopic world. Unusual concept and unexpected plot twists. Unlike a lot of erotica, there's a gripping plot in addition to well-done sex scenes. I love the twisted imagination of this author! I hope there will be a sequel.
  • Safe at Third on June 10, 2015

    “Safe at Third” is essentially a short story that’s basically an adjunct to a much longer ebook about young male teens who discover they’re gay. (“Rounding Third” Available on Amazon, but not Smashwords.) I have not read the abovementioned ebook, but the description and reviews on Amazon sound as if it would be good reading material for young adults who may have found themselves in similar circumstances. “Safe at Third” uses one of these characters to focus on Safer Sex. There’s not much of a plot, but it provides a good description of a sex-positive attitude combined with solid information about Safer Sex practices, on a teen-age level. It’s graphic to an extent, but really doesn’t qualify as serious adult Erotica, so should not be judged in that category.
  • The Taste of the Hucow: Total Dairy Submission on June 19, 2015

    This one is a real turn on if you like reading about lactation! Well-written and well-described. I'd like to see more from this author.
  • Gay For The Captain: Lust On The High Seas Bundle Books 1,2&3 (Gay historical bareback first time menage erotica) on July 07, 2015

    More High Jinx on the High Seas! You may have already read the first book in this collection, since that book has been offered separately. The other 2 books are new. As Will begins his life as cabin boy on the good ship Howling Whore, he makes the acquaintance of the captain and some of the officers and crew, all of whom are extremely well-endowed, and all of whom show him exactly what sort of “duties” he will be required to perform in the future. Meanwhile, Will and his would-be lover, Jon, start having problems, when Will is unwilling to confine himself to just one man. (As if he would be allowed to do that anyway, considering that the entire crew of the ship has their eyes on the new cabin boy.) Very interesting reading. The author has a talent for describing male/male sex in vivid detail.
  • 18 Dead on July 12, 2015

    In a relatively short time, the author turns all the assumptions you bring to this story upside down.
  • Claimed By The Crew (Gay Historical Menage Steamy Romance) on July 15, 2015

    As Will learns more about his “duties”, his relationship with Jon is still rocky and unsettled. Meanwhile, our intrepid cabin boy finds out that he’s soon going to be initiated by the entire crew. You’ll be left guessing about what happens at this secretive “initiation”, but I’m sure the author will let us in on the secret when the next book comes out.
  • Pumped By A Pterodactyl (M/F Dinosaur Erotica) on July 22, 2015

    Hot sex with a dinosaur, no less! First time I’ve ever read about such a thing, but I must admit it’s very arousing. The author makes it almost seem believable, not to mention fun. It will be interesting to see where the story goes from here.
  • Perception: A German Love Story on Aug. 11, 2015
    (no rating)
    Excellent story about the love that develops between two teen-age boys who start out as enemies. There's really nothing more I can say that hasn't been said already, other than that I wish there had been such a book available when I was a youngster.
  • Above the Dungeon on Sep. 28, 2015

    Forget FIFTY SHADES! This book gives the reader a much more accurate depiction of what BDSM is really like. Of course, it's still fiction, but the author accurately describes the feelings, conflicting emotions, common practices, and some of the philosophy behind the real BDSM world. I'm looking forward to reading the rest of the series and seeing how Ms. Johnson deals with some of the deeper issues involved.
  • Out of the Dungeon on Sep. 28, 2015

    This book turned several relationships upside down, then examined the bits and pieces before things got put together again in unexpected ways. I especially enjoyed learning more about Roman. And his grandmother was amazing! Too bad we won't be hearing any more about her.
  • DeVante's Children (Revamped) on Oct. 30, 2015

    Excellent Story! Even though I've pretty much lost interest in vampire stories, I couldn't resist reading this one because I've read the author's Dungeon Series. Almost against my will, I was sucked into the story and couldn't stop reading. If you like vampires combined with gay male romance, you'll love this one.
  • American Flyboy on Jan. 15, 2016

    This is not Hogan’s Heroes! It’s more of a war story than a gay male romance. The sex, which happens quite frequently, is very well described, but it’s not always pleasant. And when it’s unpleasant, the author doesn’t pull his punches. If you like action/adventure set against the background of Germany collapsing before the onslaught of the Russian Army, plus lots of raw male/male sex of all kinds, you’ll find it in this book.
  • A Superior Slave (Ganymede Quartet Book 0.5) on Feb. 06, 2016

    I would have given it 5 stars if the entire first half of the book wasn’t so repetitious that I wanted to yell at the author, “Get it moving! Enough already with everyone being sorry to leave his friends, worrying about his future, and engaging in repetitious interludes of sex with each other!” And that’s not to mention that there are so many characters being introduced that I could barely remember who was who. However, things picked up as soon as they got to the slave auction. From there on, I just had to keep reading so I could find out which master would purchase Martin. If the entire book had moved along as well and as compellingly as the last half did, I wouldn’t have been so tempted to stop reading. Just prior to posting this review, I got another book in this series. Haven’t finished it yet, but so far it’s much better, plot-wise, than the previous book. Just wanted to note that here, so that prospective readers don’t judge the entire series by the introductory book.
