From Skazitelnitsy, one of the authors:

This may be the first published volume of Chekov erotica (a dubious honor, perhaps). I also think "A Matter of Competition" many be the first Chulu story to see print.

Chekov and Sulu were often paired in K/S stories in a sort of "junior bridegroom" trope where their relationship was used to mirror or contrast the central K/S one, but this is the first example I know of where the story is entirely centered on developing a sexual relationship between the two characters. Of course, I could be wrong. [1]
