Last Tuesday friends had invited me over to their place for lunch. I ended up watching photos of them, very sexy photos. This one made me beg to please, please have it…
Thanks, M. and M.!
Being a bit bored this evening – eventhough I have more than enough to do – I felt like surfing for some male nudity. This time I had a good look at the work by Dylan Ricci. In my opinion his work has something homo-erotic, but at the same time I find the images attractive as well. I remember a discussion with a friend of mine, some time ago. He told me that supposedly women seem to be more and more interested in – and turned on by – homo-sexual images and adult films. In contemporay female erotic literature and magazines, the fantasy of seeing two men, c.q. one’s boyfriend having sex with another men, is mentioned quite often. Interesting development I think. A good one too. The more naked men, the better
For your pleasure, some more beautiful images by Dylan Ricci. Check out his webpage and his motivation to photograph nudity.
A friend and colleague of mine wrote me a message today, giving me the link to photographer Pilo Pichler and wishing me ‘viel Spaß’ with looking at his work. One of his projects is called Lost in Translation. Now I totally love the movie with Bill Murray, but the photos for sure don’t have anything to do with b(e)i(n)g in Japan . I was pleasantly surprised though! Here are the images I like best:
The first picture gives me the impression that the owner is worshiping his cock (and so he should!).
I am totally in love with the second picture, in which the guy seems to offer his penis as a present. A cock can certainly be a very nice gift to receive .
I can imagine the man in the third picture looking at his penis thinking “yep, looks all good to me”.
In the forth picture, he is choosing whom to aim at .
The last picture is kind of funny, but I have to say I have mainly chosen it because I find the guy’s hands very attractive and erotic.
Text by the artist himself:
In meiner Arbeit setze ich Männer auf die Fährte eines persönlichen Zugangs zu ihrer Sexualität, um eine bewusste Inszenierung dieses Verhältnisses mit Hilfe Ihres Geschlechts und der Hände möglich zu machen.
Der Titel der Arbeit nimmt Bezug auf die Schwierigkeiten von Männern, ihre sexuellen Gefühle zu übersetzten.
Darüber hinaus bedeutet ‘Lost in…’ auch ‘Sich in etwas verlieren’ bzw. ‘Sich einer Sache hingeben’.
Der treibende Stellenwert, den Sexualität für Männer in unserer Gesellschaft einnimmt gepaart mit den offensichtlichen Kommunikationsdefiziten bildet den Rahmen für diese Arbeit.
‘For the world you are someone, but for someone you are the world’
For weeks, on an almost daily basis, I have been staring at this picture. It hangs in the shop where I work, next to the register, and I think it is breathtaking. This image is a great example of how naked men can be photographed in a way that they look absolutely stunning and erotic for women like me. I mean, doesn’t his body look fascinating and gorgeous? The whole image, the light, the composition, it is all very well chosen and tasteful, and… you even see his cock. The image makes me curious, it makes me want to see more…
And don’t you just want to be the woman standing behind him? Or even better: wouldn’t you want to have a similar picture of your boyfriend? I sure do. So about two weeks ago I decided to write the Austrian artist behind this picture, Joe Malina, an e-mail to ask if I could post ‘Umarmung’ (Embrace) on my blog. One week later he came by the shop and we agreed on talking about it in more detail, which we did today.
Malina mostly takes erotic pictures of women. Not because that is his choice; it’s because men are not too eager to be photographed naked. A woman’s body has always been observed as beautiful and erotic, but somehow it has been different when it comes to the male body. Men do not mind to stand in front of the camera with a weapon or a tool, but naked is a whole different story. There are women though who want to have an erotic photo of their partner or boyfriend, for they do consider his body sexy and good to look at. That’s how Malina has had the opportunity to put the man in front of his camera and capture his essence. And how! His images of male nudity are the best I have seen so far. What a thrill to fantasize how Malina would capture male nudity on film…
