Alex and Pete arguably had the least survivable jobs in World War II. They were American P-47 fighter-bomber aviators, based in England and flying dangerous bombing missions over the continent. Knowing the likelihood they wouldn’t survive, they led a hedonist bisexual sex life when on the ground, aided by men and women who wanted to make what life they had left pleasurable and who themselves wanted to sacrifice in the war effort. It helped that Alex and Pete were both hunks and studs. They had each survived over a hundred missions when the ceiling of expectance was ninety. They, like other pilots, ascribed this to the rituals they went through before flying. Alex and Pete’s rituals extended to sex, including with each other. Alex, the submissive, had grown to see their relationship in terms of love, not just ritual. When Pete fell in love with a young Viscount, though, pre-mission ritual went out the window. Would the two aviators survive this collapse in their rituals?
