Twenty Years, 10,000 Naked Men, Part 1: Asian to Hung
When I turned 18, I could buy "dirty" magazines, but they were all about women except for Playgirl, which I didn't dare buy. Sometimes I bought Hustler, because nude men would be shown alongside the women.
In grad school in Bloomington, I finally found porn magazines aimed at gay men: Blueboy, Honcho, In Touch. You could see penises, but they were frightfully expensive, $3, $4, or even $5 (twice my hourly salary) for nine or ten pictures.
In the 1990s, the internet allowed you to go to online bulletin boards, pay a monthly fee, and download jpgs, hundreds of them. Guys who had been bereft of erotic imagery for the last 30 years suddenly found themselves spending an hour or twoevery morning just looking at and downloading images. Maybe 20 a day, or 7300 per year.
But the guys who were bereft of erotic imagery earlier in life were still overwhelmed. It's like you were starving for half your life, and suddenly you are invited to a nonstop banquet. You gorge yourself, worried that the display will someday end. So you continue to spend an hour or two every morning downloading images.
And before you know it, you have 10,000.
I've used many of them as illustrations on this blog, but there are thousands more. Here are some of my favorites. In each category.
Asian. (Top photo.) Lots of men from China, Japan, Korea, Vietnam, and South Asia. I like this sultry Desi with a Kielbasa+.
Batman and Robin. I have a whole folder of pics of the Caped Crusader and the Boy Wonder, both canonical and fan art. Nightwing -- Robin all grown up -- shows a fabulous physique but no basket in this canonical drawing.
Black. It's the insouciant attitude and the cap that makes this photo. And the baseball bat between his legs.
Bulges. Charlie Day of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia displays the second most important reason I'm a fan. The first is his comedic talent. Ok, who am I kidding? His comedic talent is #2.
Ok, I just looked him up. He's the one on the right, a star of Days of Our Lives.
But I'm really more interested in following that trail of hair down his abdomen to his...
His friend is invited, too.
Dads and Sons. Not sex photos, but shirtless or naked, at the beach or in the sauna. This is an interesting series, Dad and Son photographed every year, as dad gets a little saggier and son gets a little more buffed. The changing hair styles are fun, too.
Dwarfs and Other Unique Men. Men who are very short, very tall, or have other unusual physical qualities. Some interesting -- and hot -- nude photos, but I'm going to go with this muscular swimmer who is missing a leg.
Ran out of space. Next up: Kilts to Pairs and Punks to Urinals.
The uncensored photos are on Tales of West Hollywood.
