I just wanted to share this beautiful man with you :) If only I could have two husbands… ;)
You may have heard there used to be an official NMHW website. I have deleted it some time ago but did save the few articles that I had written for it. In case you are interested in reading them, you can read them here: NMHW Website R.I.P.
Dear readers and viewers,
Some time has passed by since I’ve written my last post. What has happened? Well, my daughter is 14 months old now and quite a handful of cuteness ;)
And just a bit over one month ago my naked man and I got married. I did not really have the time to concern myself with other naked males, but I did think about this topic and where to go from where I’d left off.
NMHW was born in March 2008. At the time I was determined to get the naked male body as a subject of female desire as much into the spotlight as I possibly could. I did my research, I shared my thoughts, reviewed some books, movies and magazines and I posted as many beautiful male bodies I could get my hands on. Inspired by my experiences with the male customers of the erotic boutique I worked for, I also wrote about male sexuality related themes. The feedback on NMHW so far has been amazing, but I am not sure if it is enough to continue…
When I started this project, I had already thought op some theories why the nude male is such a big deal: see my article The Search for Cock. But over time I realized there may be a bigger reason why male nude photography for women is not working: women are not men.
What is the main purpose of erotic nude photography (when it is not made to be art)? Exactly. It is masturbation material. Men can look at a picture of a naked woman – or just the essential body parts of a woman: breasts, ass, vulva – and get turned on in such a way that it is enough to make a masturbation session have a satisfactory ending. For me no photo of a naked man, no matter how erotic or good looking he is, has such an effect on me. To be honest, I do not know any woman who masturbates while looking at photos of male nudes. If there are women who do this, let me know! I do enjoy looking at nice photographs of naked men and if I particularly like one, of course I wonder what it would be like to touch that beautiful body. But that’s where the fantasy ends. Something vital, something that men do not really need, is missing: movement.
In order to imagine if a man is a good lover, I need to know how he moves. If I see an attractive man having sex with someone, I can imagine if he is good or bad at it. If I have the impression he is breathtakingly good, then the naked man starts to turn me on.
I think men do not need to see a naked woman move because they probably fantasize more about what they do to her than what she might do to them. A woman doesn’t necessarily have to do much for the man to have satisfying sex. Even if she would just lay in bed and let herself be taken, it would most likely be quite boring, but it would do. Vice versa though, it surely would not. When sex is perceived in its essence, the woman plays the passive part in the bedroom, the man the active. Receiving and giving. Stagnation and movement.
I assume this is the reason why women do not go crazy over male nude magazines, books or any other medium that shows male nude photography. Therefore the magazines, no matter how good they are, do not survive, illustrated books do not sell enough and no publisher is interested in publishing male nude photography for a female target group – unless you pay for them to print it and honestly, that says enough.
And there is the reason that all good things, even Naked Men, Happy Women, must come to an end. Funny enough, when I started writing this post, an exhibition about naked men opened in the Leopold Museum in Vienna. You can see some of the art work underneath this article. Not the best photos, but I was not allowed to use the flash :). Although people who have seen the exhibition poster (the one with the three naked football players) hanging all over town were mostly ‘shocked’ or ‘disgusted’ by seeing completely naked men – people have been covering up the penises on the posters! – there were lots of people attending the exhibition while my husband and I were there…
Anyway, it seems people finally do start to realize the naked man needs more attention – and is worth more attention! The male body is beautiful, erotic and sensual and should not be hidden. I hope my blog has made a worthy contribution to this break through and I thank all of you for your support, your compliments and your suggestions! A special thanks is for all the men who have taken the courage to mail me photographs of themselves that I was allowed to share here on Naked Men, Happy Women. Thumbs up, guys!
Hello readers and viewers,
I have decided – regretfully – to take a longer break from Naked Men, Happy Women as planned. As you may know, I have a wonderful little baby girl to take care of now. But due to the fact that I am a full-time mother now, I don’t have time to write new blog posts and surf the internet for new hotties.
The official NMHW website has been cancelled. The blog however will remain. In case I do have more time to concern myself with wonderful men again, I will continue writing about them here.
I want to thank all of you for your support, compliments and contributions and I hope you will continue the NMHW mission!
Dear readers and viewers,
I just wanted to leave a short message that I am taking a little break from blogging until my baby has arrived. The end of the pregnancy is near and I feel the need to just be occupied with that and nothing else. Well, maybe my naked man at home ;)
Anyway, don’t be disappointed, more naked men and articles will come in the future. You can continue sending submissions for the NMHW book contest, Lady Lu and I do check the mailbox and will pick a hottie when we spot one :)
The second photo contribution for the NMHW competition can be submitted until next week Saturday, the 13th of August!
The following photo is the first winning contribution for the NMHW competition!
The photographer, who is also the model, let himself be inspired by the theme “curves”. It is often said that the female body is more sexy and sensual than the male body because she has curves. We all know this to be an invalid argument, for men have very beautiful, erotic and yummy curves too. The contribution by CFNMGUY is therefore another wonderful addition to proof this point.
“I believe the Panton chair fits to the theme “curves”. It gives the image a “classic” look. The image has something relaxed about it and apart from me being completely naked, it also shows a bit of a submissive side…” – CFNMGUY
We have to admit, the photo does seem to be an invitation for some spanking ;)
Congratulations, CFNMGUY! Send us more and enjoy the book!
