5.0 out of 5 stars An Unbelievable Story By Bon November 29, 2014 Format: Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase Young provides a thought provoking peek into the privileged life of a young boy as he navigates his way through childhood and into adolescence. This autobiography is so detailed that the reader is led into the intimate depths of the author's personal experiences. Young reveals the heart-breaking moments he has with his father as he tries to maintain a relationship with him knowing that his father does not accept his sexuality. These are the moments that I feel readers can connect with, as there are many LGBTQ community members that struggle with maintaining familial/parental relationships knowing fully that they may never be accepted or loved solely based on their sexual orientation. Reading that Young's mother is a champion for him does help to ease the pain a bit, but its not the same as if he had both parents supporting him. As we follow Young into his early adolescence, we meet several pivotal people that play a big role in the shaping of his character. We, as readers, are introduced to the many young men and mentors at the prestigious school in England (Daltonbury Academy) at which Young attended. Up until this point, we get to know who Young is as a person and an individual, and nothing seems out of the ordinary in his story as a young, gay male meeting other boys and experiencing the beginnings of his sexuality. However, it is shortly after his arrival at Daltonbury, that Young's story takes a most unbelievable turn. We learn that Young is recruited to participate in a secret fraternity in which he will travel to another country and be a willing participant in a harem. I must admit, at times, the story does not even seem real (I had no idea that such 'programs' existed), and at one point, I emailed the author to clarify that this was indeed his true story. Young (a.k.a. Bernard Foong) was more than gracious to respond to all my queries, informing me that the details presented are indeed factual and relayed some of his methods he uses to remember. I am quite amazed at what he has encountered in his life. Young's story then progresses to his experiences as a participant in the "exchange" program. And, although there is very detailed and graphic sexual moments, the story is more than these erotic encounters. It touches upon the emotional lives of the people in the story and shows how their experience in the program was part of their life education. I am truly intrigued by Young's narrative and am currently following up with book 2, Unbridled. The only small criticism would be that it is quite a long read and perhaps, could have been edited just a tad more to provide for a better pacing between Parts One/Two and Parts Three/Four/Five. However, overall, if you are looking for an amazing life story to read, this is definitely one you'll want to check out. --Amazon reviews

5.0 out of 5 stars Enlightening and Inspiring By Diane LaRocque on August 13, 2016 Format: Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase As an author and creator of unique and loving characters, I am always looking to understand the human psyche. Here, I though to find a glimpse into the mind of a young gay male. To my delight, I found so much more. Not only did Young share his thoughts and his actions, but the teachings of the Enlightened Royal Oracle Society as well. This book opened my eyes to a world that has, until now, been shrouded in secrecy. It also opened my mind and my heart. I pray that I will never forget what it has taught me. Tomorrow, I will begin Unbridled, the second book in the series. I hope to continue my education and deepen further my ability to LOVE. --Amazon Reviews

out of 5 stars Five Stars By Richard L. Wohletz on December 6, 2015 Format: Paperback|Verified Purchase Loved the book! An amazing personal story of life, love and sensuality. I won't give away any spoilers, you should check it out for yourself. However, I will say that the author honestly shares a unique personal tale of adventure and sexuality. It did make me think of my growing up in the midwest of the U.S. and the unaccepting attitudes that still remain. Going to check out vol. 2. --Amazon Reviews

Product Description

This provocative story is about an adolescent 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.

Author’s note:

I had a privileged and unique upbringing in Malaysia. 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.
