Clyde was bellowing, with such force and exhilaration that Dan could finally relax. Clyde was spasming, grunting as he came, falling on top of him; the room was a furnace from the heat of the day...Dan pushed Clyde off him onto his back on the carpet, then straddled him, jerking his cock violently for only a couple of seconds, feverishly chasing that brief moment of light...Tsiolkas writes about sex in realistic daily situations compared to the more romantic of sex scene authors. He portrays sex as a release from the stresses of life, which for many readers is a more accurate scenario. The force between Clyde and Danny, the two man in this scene, is also a reflection of a type of intimacy between gay men. While it sounds a little fractured, with emotional distance between the men, it's a well written scene for the honesty behind it, and the cold truth behind the fact the sometimes people use sex as a cure for their overloaded minds.
