Two classic photos all gay men adore; back to the dentist for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

Today I am posting two classic photos that I, and most all gay men I know, adore.

The first, to the left here, was taken in the 1970’s, I believe, and was published in a gay-oriented magazine of that time. I’ve always called it “The Enigmatic Boy with a Belt” because the photo raises more questions than it offers answers. The boy is classically beautiful with his long hair, dark eyes and smooth limbs. But why is he so scantily clad, and why is he holding the belt the way he is? Is he about to suffer a whipping? If so, did he do something wrong? Or is he actually relishing his punishment?

Well, I guess we’ll never know, will we?

The second photo was taken at the elite Salem School in southern Germany, in the school’s bathing facility. The photographer was an American who lived in Germany in the 1960’s, named Will McBride. Great photo, eh?

Well, over the weekend the temporary cap I had placed on one of my front teeth shifted position, and I look like I belong in Disney’s Haunted Mansion when I smile. I called my dentist this morning and they are getting me in for a repair around two PM. Hopefully the third time will be the charm.

Because of the dental appointment I won’t be able to visit the YMCA today for my usual workout and lap-swimming session, so I guess I will take a run, here on the island, around four PM, to get some exercise. Outside it’s terribly hot and humid, and I can’t wait for cooler weather to arrive next month.

Have a nice Monday, everyone.


Guys with sexy lips; Martin’s back from his fishing trip ….

Hi, friends and readers:

When it comes to sex, I think kissing is one of the most exciting acts of foreplay two men can engage in. And there’s nothing sexier than kissing a guy with full pudgy lips, like the two in today’s photo posts. I mean, who could resist kissing the guy to the left here? No me, that’s for certain. 😉

Well, it’s around five PM on Sunday and I have just returned from spending two lovely nights at my fishing camp with two good friends. (And no, I didn’t kiss either of them because they’re straight.) We had a great time collecting scallops and enjoying the outdoors on my boat.

Now I’ve put away everything from the trip and I am relaxing with a cold beer as I write these words. I’m feeling rested and ready for a nice evening, here on the island.

By the way, do you find the young man to the left here as sexy as I do. That shirt really shows off his shoulder and arm muscles, and those lips. Aye-yi-yi ….

It’s still dreadfully hot outside, and the Red Tide is still hanging around, so there’s an odor of dead fish in the air. This is one of the prices we pay to live in Florida, and thankfully it doesn’t occur too often.

Well, if you’re lucky, you have someone you can plant a fat kiss on this evening. And you certainly should, especially if he has nice lips. Enjoy your Sunday night, friends.

The cute boy with braces on his teeth; busy Thursday for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

When I was in high school I wore braces on my teeth for three years. I thought they would never come off and I didn’t like the way they made me look, but it sure was nice when I ended up with a perfect smile. 🙂

I’m sure the boy in today’s photo posts thinks his braces are ugly, but I think he looks awfully cute when he smiles, despite the metal in his mouth. I wonder what his name is and where he lives? And I wonder if he has a boyfriend?

Well it has been a very busy day for me. Last night, my temporary tooth cap I just had installed Wednesday morning fell off, so I had to run to the dentist this morning to have it put back in place, hopefully with better results. I had another doctor’s appointment after that, also in the city. Then I had to meet my handyman at Home Depot to select a new fan for him to install in my bedroom. He followed me home and spent two hours dismantling the old fan and putting up the new one.

My old fan has been making grinding noises for years, and I finally tired of listening to it when I’m reading in bed. So, now I have a nice new Hunter fan hanging above my bed that makes nary a sound. 🙂

I wonder if Mr. Braces would like to lie under the fan with me? (Dream on, Martin.)

Since today is Thursday, around 5:30 PM I will drive into the city to spend the evening with one of my best and oldest friends. We’ll drink a few beers and share a few stories, the get takeout for our dinner. It’s a weekly ritual I always look forward to, so it’ll be a nice way to end the busy day.

All right, everyone, have a nice Thursday, wherever you might be today, and be sure to keep smiling, even if you have braces on your teeth. Its important. 🙂

Beautiful guys in black-and-white; easy Wednesday in store for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

If you follow this site then you know I am a huge fan of black-and-white photography, and about once a week I like to share a pair of my favorites with you guys, so you can enjoy them as much as I do.

I find the photo to the left here especially appealing. The model, of course, is beautiful, but that’s not the only reason I like the photo. Notice how much space appears above the model? That space actually makes us focus even more intently on the young man. Notice the odd expression on his face, as though he’s deep in thought about something important And I like the way his left arm is bent behind his waist, an interesting pose for sure.

I was up early this morning because I had a dental appointment to put a temporary crown in my mouth to replace the one that fell off Monday night. At least I no longer look like a creature in the  Haunted Mansion at Disney World. 🙂

Okay, here’s another black-and-white photo I find pretty amazing. Again, the model is beautiful, but I love the expression on his face and the way the lighting plays on him. We can’t tell whether he’s naked, but we’d all like to know, wouldn’t we? 😉

Now I’m home. It’s close to lunchtime and I have an easy day ahead of me. After lunch I will drive into the city to visit the YMCA for a workout and lap-swimming. Then I will head home for a relaxing evening, here on the island. Okay, that doesn’t sound too exciting, but after all my summer travels I am content to spend time here, just enjoying the beauty of my property and my little island.

Have a great Wednesday, everyone.

Shirtless guys wearing backpacks; easy Tuesday in store for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

I think certain guys look really amazing when they are shirtless but wearing a backpack on their shoulders. I’m not sure why that look is so appealing, but who could resist either guy in this morning’s photo posts. Just look at those pretty brown  eyes on Mr. Slender to the left here. 😉

Last night, I was innocently eating my dinner and watching Monday Night Football, when the cap on one of my front teeth came loose and disappeared. I presume I swallowed it. 🙁 Anyway, now I have a huge gap in my smile that looks terrible. I called my dentist and they are getting me in first thing tomorrow morning. In the meantime I’ll look like I belong on a pirate ship.:-(

I find the guy in the photo to the left pretty amazing. I love his lean body and I like the way the sunlight is reflecting off his long wavy hair. I could follow him around all day. 😉

I woke pretty early this morning because the exterminator was due here at eight AM. After he left, I got busy with booking a trip to Toronto next month, when I will visit a friend up there for a few days. The weather’s usually nice up there in early October, so I’m looking forward to the trip.

Today will be an easy day for me. I have some editing to do and correspondence to tend to. I need to make a run to the wine market to stock my shelf, and around four I plan to take a two-mile run, here on the island. Of course it’s dreadfully hot and humid outside, so the run will be brutal, but if I want to stay fit I need to deal with the heat. That’s life in Florida.

All right, everyone, I need to get busy, so I will close this post by wishing all of you a very fine Tuesday, wherever you might be today. And keep smiling, it’s important. 🙂

Youch! A hot pair of spanking videos for those of you who like to watch ….

Hi, friends and readers:

It’s no secret that spanking videos are popular in the gay porno subculture, as well as in the straight porno world. Like BDSM, spanking videos and photos appeal to both those who like administering a spanking (I’ve don that myself several times and found it somewhat stimulating.) and those who like to be spanked.

Anyway, if this your sort of thing, you might want to have a look at these two videos:

and ….

Those poor lads better learn to please their daddies a little better, or they won’t be sitting down too comfortably much of the time. 😉

Hot guys at the beach (but not Martin’s beach) ….

Hi, friends and readers:

If you follow this site, then you know I live in one of Florida’s prettiest beach communities, on the Gulf Coast. Normally, our water is crystal clear and the sand at the shore looks as white as table sugar. And there’s nothing more delightful than taking a stroll along the shore to check out all the college boys running around in their swim trunks.

Sadly, right now no one is using our beach because the Red Tide has invaded our part of the Gulf of Mexico. This is a type of organism that kills fish and other sea life like turtles and manatees. All the dead things wash up on our shore, stinking like crazy, and it’s nasty as hell. So, no boys on the beach right now. 🙁

Oh, and our beach is not clothing optional, but I could go for that if Mr. Smiley to the left here would show up. What a nice smile. 😉

I spent a pleasant evening last night with a good friend, sharing a few beers and some tasty Greek takeout for our dinner. I came home feeling a little tired after all the household project I tackled this weekend, so it wasn’t long before I hit the bed and drifted into dreamland.

I was up around 8:30 this morning, and at nine I was at the keyboard to write fresh material for my novel-in-progress. I wrote for two hours, and then I spent a few minutes making phone calls to schedule appointments with various people. I have a whole list of projects I want to tackle in the coming months, and it’s time I got them underway.

This will be a typical Monday for me. Right after lunch I will climb into my Element and drive into the city to visit the YMCA for a workout and lap-swimming. I’ll visit a wine shop and supermarket on the way home, and then I will spend a quiet evening at home.

Have a great Monday, friends.

The world of BDSM. Why does it fascinate us so?

Hi, friends and readers:

Back in 2012, I published BDSM-themed, short novel titled “Passion Play”. I had never written much fiction about the BDSM scene, but decided to give it a try. Here’s the blurb for my book:

“Reverend Luke helps put on the Passion Play at his church every year. Nearly eighty parishioners get involved, and this year brothers James and Marcus Thibodeaux will be participate. James will play Jesus, but there’s a hitch; he’s deaf, so Marcus will act as translator.

“James is beautiful and young–almost angelic in appearance–and just the person to portray Jesus. Or is he?

“When Reverend Luke begins a sexual relationship with Marcus, he learns things about James that are hardly angelic. Can Reverend Luke convince James to be penitent and worthy of portraying Jesus?”

“Passion Play” was a huge success. It sold many copies and continues to sell occasionally, even six years after initial publication, a rarity in genre fiction.  But why are readers so fascinated by BDSM?

I’m no psychologist, but I think BDSM is less about pain, and more about control or lack thereof. Having utter control over another person’s body is powerful stuff. Likewise, surrendering control over one’s body can also be an incredibly exciting experience, as long as there’s a strong element of trust between the participants.

On to other matters. I spent a quiet night at home last night, after a delightful swim at my timeshare, along with my neighbor. I ended up reading in bed until I fell asleep around one AM. Then I slept until 9:30 this morning.

I don’t have a lot planned for my Sunday. I’ve already read the newspaper, and I plan to do some more housework today, in particular cleaning all the objects resting on the shelves above my desk: family photos, memorabilia, rocks and stones I’ve collected during my worldwide travels, and so forth.  I probably haven’t cleaned them in three years and they are looking dusty.

Tonight I will join a friend in the city for drinks and takeout for dinner. Outside, it’s terrible warm and humid, and the Red Tide has invaded our area, so the odor of dead fish hangs in the air. 🙁 I hope conditions are nice where you are, friends. Have a nice Sunday.


Department store change room jerk offs. Is this a new fad?


Hi, friends and readers:

I don’t post any porn on this site because it’s intended for all ages. But occasionally I’ll come across something X-rated online, and if it’s interesting I will share the links to the material.

In think certain young men these days are pursuing a new sexual activity: making selfie videos of themselves getting naked and jerking off in a department store change room. I guess there’s a certain thrill to it, since others are nearby who have no idea what’s going on the in change room.

Anyway, I thought the video I’m linking you to was pretty sexy. However ….

WARNING: If male nudity and sexual activity offend you, or if you are under the age of 18, don’t click on the links.

Enjoy, guys …. 😉

Hot guys in the shower; steamy Saturday on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

Have you ever taken a shower with your boyfriend, the kind where you scrub each other from head to toe? It can be a lot of fun, actually. There’s something very sexy about watching water sheet down a young man’s limbs, and it’s fun slipping your soapy fingers into crevices all over his body. The guys in the top photo sure look like they’e enjoying themselves, don’t they?

I was up at eight this morning because I had to make a phone call to a friend in Canada and we needed to speak before he left for work. I walked outside to get the newspaper and…yikes. It’s really hot and muggy outdoors, the kind of weather that makes you want to stay inside in the air conditioning. When will fall ever come?

Um, have a look at our friend to the left here. Do you think he’s about to ditch those briefs he’s wearing? I mean, who showers in his underwear? Anyway, he has an amazing body I’d love to scrub. Yummy …. 😉

My plan for today is relatively simple. After I do some work in the writing department, I delve into a painting project I can perform indoors. I’ll turn some music one the stereo to keep myself amused, and I’ll paint away. Around four PM I will take a two-mile run, here on the island, and then I’ll watch my Florida Gators play Colorado State. I’m afraid the Gators aren’t too good this year, so they may lose this one. 🙁

Have a nice Saturday, friends.
