He Came From a Place of Openness and Truth, by Bonnie Jo Stufflebeam

Lightspeed Magazine, January 2015; 6,098 words
Rating: 3, Good, ordinary, story

Teenage Ben doesn't understand why he's attracted to Mikey. He never like guys before, and there's something really odd about Mikey.

Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: Ben starts out unsure of what he wants, then he thinks he's happy until he figures Mikey out, but in the end he's happy with Mikey just the way he is.

Con: The idea of aliens needing human sperm is very, very silly. It's a bit unsettling that Ben never seems to care about satisfying Mikey's needs.
