"Boy meets girl" takes on new meaning in Darrell Bain and Jeanine
Berry's The Sex Gates.
A group of four college chums, three male and one female, gain
sexual balance and lose their equilibrium when one of the guys
passes through a glowing arch that appears in front of them. And
becomes a gal... and what a gal! Don was Lee's best friend, but
having his buddy become a buxom brunette complicates matters. Lee
refuses to believe it's happened at first. Then he refuses to
accept it. His girlfriend, Rita, is mostly okay with it and even
Don comes around to accepting Don's being Donna sooner than Lee
But eventually, Lee gives in... so to speak.
Don was one of the first, but hardly the last to pass through the
Sex Gates. The gates appeared all over the world at the same time.
Men become women and women, men. Some countries ban the gates and
persecute those who have changed. New religions rise and old ones
teeter. The gates are the long-sought Fountain of Youth; they turn
everyone who passes through into a post-pubescent member of the
opposite sex--except not everyone can pass through. Some people
enter and don't emerge, generally people any society would be
better off without. And, as a side effect, the gates cure illness.
And then the plot gets complicated.
The story follows the four friends through their various and sundry
changes, as the gates change the world. Professor Higgins' "what if
a woman... were more like a man..." becomes a reality... and vice
versa. Men and women finally understand each other, at any rate
understand each other as well as they understand themselves. No one
understands the gates, however, but some begin to... and just might
in a sequel.
