Malzberg did the same thing in "Getting Around," another story for Elwood from , with the difference that the government is forcing people to have heterosexual group sex.
I wrote about "Getting Around" on October 30, An interesting thing about Malzberg, one way he differs from older and more prominent SF writers like Heinlein Sturgeon, and Pangborn, is that while they celebrate and romanticize sex as a means of expressing love and bringing people together, Malzberg focuses in his work on the challenges of sexual life, portraying one failed relationship after another, rape, and the use of sex as a weapon. This mirrors the way space travel, celebrated by, say, Heinlein and Anderson, is portrayed by Malzberg as a challenge mankind is not ready, perhaps not even interested in, overcoming.

I'm glad you liked my review, and there are definitely more to come: Screen and Universe Day and Herovit's World and Overlay are right there on my shelf! His comic horrors and exhausting failures of sex is a theme that places Malzberg into the cohort of Jewish writers of the then-preceding 15 years: Mailer, Philip Roth, Wallace Markfield, Bruce Jay Friedman. Also remember that the poor man had to churn out some 25 stiffeners in the first three years of his professional career just to survive — so the thrill of writing about sex would probably rather have worn away by the early 70s.

You are absolutely right--in the intro to Best of Malzberg hints that as a beginning writer he saw Roth's career as a model for his own, and when I read Malzberg's Horizontal Woman I compared it to works by Roth and Bellow, all three books being largely about NYC-area Jews dealing with African-Americans.
