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

Hi, friends and readers:

Several years ago, I wrote a book titledΒ Passion Play.Β It delves into the BDSM scene in quite graphic detail, and it remains one of the best selling books I have ever produced, but I am not sure why. I myself have never felt too interested in BDSM, but it seems many gay men find the scene intoxicating, and hey, why not? Whether you are a sub or a dom, if it floats your boat, then go for it.

The young man to the left here is quite beautiful, and he doesn’t seem bothered by the fact his wrists are tied up behind his head. I wonder what’s in store for him?

Well, I woke just in time to greet the guys who came to repair my gas fireplace. One was pretty damned cute. πŸ˜‰ They were here for about an hour, to install a new and very expensive part. But now the fireplace is working again. Yay …. πŸ™‚

Okay, the guy to the left here has his wrists shackled, and I suspect he’s in for a long night. I doubt he’ll be wearing those pants very much longer. He seems unconscious. Do you think he’s been drugged?

It’s around noon here, and I intend to spend my afternoon cleaning out more of my shrubbery beds and putting fresh mulch in them. I spent three hours yesterday dong the same work outside my patio fence, and today I will work on beds inside the fence. It’s not hard work, and what a difference it makes.

All right, friends, if you have a semi-naked boy tied up in your basement, I wish you both luck. Try to enjoy yourselves, but don’t let anyone suffer any serious injury, okay? Have a nice Thursday. πŸ™‚

Sexy guys wearing trapper hats; another chilly day on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

About ten years ago, I visited Toronto to get acquainted with a guy I’d met over the Internet. This was February, and it wasΒ coldΒ up there–highs of 30 and lows of 15. While there, I noticed a lot of young men wearing hats like the ones appearing in today’s photo posts, and when I asked my friend what they were called, he said, “They’re trapper hats. They keep your head and ears warm.”

I was later given a trapper hat as a gift by my then boyfriend, but I have rarely worn it since the weather never gets too cold in Florida.

I did get an opportunity to wear my trapper hat a few years ago when I attended a Green Bay Packers home game at Lambeau Field on Christmas Eve. The hat really does keep your head and ears warm. πŸ™‚

Anyway, I think the guys in today’s photo posts look great in their trapper hats, especially since they’re not wearing much else. The young man to the left here is especially beautiful, with his smooth skin, bulging muscles and handsome face. I wonder if he ever wears his trapper hat when he has sex with his boyfriend?

It’s another chilly day outside–51 degrees–but at least the sun is shining and the wind quit blowing. I have a few errands to run before returning home, and then I’ll perform some yard work for a couple of hours, raking out my shrubbery beds and re-mulching them with fresh bags I bought yesterday at Home Depot. It’s not hard work when the weather’s cool like it is today, so I don’t mind the chore. Have a nice Wednesday, friends. πŸ™‚

Another cute guy in his car; frigid evening on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

Is this guy to the left cute or what? He has it all: great hair and skin, pretty blue eyes, and oh-so-kissable lips. Who wouldn’t want him for a boyfriend? And I’ll be he’s a good driver too. πŸ™‚

It’s been a good day for me. I got some solid writing done, and my problematic tree got trimmed so it won’t impact my fence anymore. I made phone calls and set appointments. I took care of correspondence and made runs to Home Depot, the supermarket and our island seafood market for fresh shrimp.

I don’t have much planned for my evening. I’ll have a few beers and edit what I wrote this morning. I will prepare a tasty shrimp scampi recipe I really like and team it with an avocado salad. Yummy …. πŸ™‚

It’s really cold outside and going down into the mid-40s. There’s a steady wind blowing out of the north, and I’ll stay inside where it’s nice and toasty. Have a nice Tuesday nice, friends. πŸ™‚

Sexy guys in their cars; it’s cold on the island today ….

Hi, friends and readers:

How would you like to take a month-long driving trip with the young man to the left here? The two of you could take turns behind the wheel, and then every night you would share an Airbnb or a hotel room, preferably with only one bed. πŸ˜‰

I woke this morning to the sound of wind blowing hard, and when I stepped outside to get my newspaper, it wasΒ cold,Β like 45 degrees. I scooted back inside and enjoyed the warmth of my lovely home.

My tree trimming guys came around 9:30 this morning, to cut down a huge limb from a Brazilian pepper tree growing on my patio. The limb was pressing against the patio fence, which I paid a lot of money for two years ago, and I didn’t want the fence damaged. Now the limb is gone and my patio looks better too.

By the way, I could certainly take a driving trip with Mr. Pink Shirt. He’sΒ soΒ sexy and I’ll bet he’s an absolute tiger in the bedroom. Yummy …. πŸ˜‰

Because I still have to refrain from exercise of any kind until mid-February, I am kind of at a loss for things to do in the afternoons. I was planning on doing some light yard work today, but it’s too damned cold and windy outside for that. Oh well, I’ll find somethings to do.

Have a nice Tuesday, everyone.

Hot boys with lovely butts; Martin’s home from the river ….

Hi, friends and readers:

I ask you, is there anything more beautiful and sexy than a young man with a pair of smooth, firm and rounded butt cheeks. U-m-m, no. πŸ˜‰

I mean, look at our friend to the left here. Who could resist squeezing his lovely bottom? Not me. πŸ™‚

Well, I spent 2-1/2 beautiful days up a my fishing camp. The weather was spectacular, the fishing good, and we enjoyed nice mealsΒ  both nights. Now, I am home and already unpacked. Okay, I’m a bit weary right now, but after a couple of beers, I’ll be fine.

I always feel refreshed after spending a lot of time outdoors. I am so lucky to have the camp and frequent opportunities to visit there.

By the way, don’t you love the way the firelight in the photo to the left is reflecting off the boy’s back and butt? It’s a highly erotic shot, and oh so enticing. πŸ˜‰

I don’t have much planned for my evening, other than having a simple dinner and maybe watching a Netflix movie. It’s getting kinda cold here tonight–low 40’s–and the cool air will be invigorating. Who knows, maybe I will start a blaze in my patio fire pit so I can enjoy the warmth and the flames. Maybe our friend to the left here would like to join me? But I think he’d have to wear clothing or he’d freeze his beautiful butt off.

All right, everyone, I need to get some things done, so I will close this post by wishing all of you a fine Monday night. πŸ™‚

Hot guys and their cameras; Martin’s had a busy afternoon ….

Hi, friends and readers:

Most selfies don’t interest me much. Do I really want to see your hair care products or the pile of dirty laundry on your bedroom floor? But occasionally, I come across a couple I deem worthy of sharing, and I’m posting two right now for your viewing pleasure. Isn’t the guy to left here sexy? Great hair and skin and a nice lanky body, just my type. Yummy …. πŸ˜‰

I am going up to my fishing camp tomorrow with a friend, and I have spent my entire afternoon preparing for the trip. The camp’s on an island inside a wildlife refuge and it is only reachable by boat. Hopefully, our weather will be decent and we’ll catch some fish.

Speaking of lanky bodies, our friend to the left here certainly has a nice one, doesn’t he? And he looks great in his Calvin Klein undies. Bu he needs to pick up his discarded clothing. Clean your room!

Well, I am 85% prepared for the fishing trip. Tomorrow morning, I need to visit a bait shop for shrimp and I also need to buy ice for our coolers. Then we’ll leave from my house around ten AM. The drive to the marina where I keep y boat is about 90 minutes, not bad really. And assuming the boat’s running well, we should reach the camp around one PM.

We’ll be staying up there until Monday afternoon, which should work out well, and then we’ll head back to my house. My friend has to work Tuesday, so he will head for his place.

All right, everyone, I have thing still to do, so I will close this posy by wishing all of you a fantastic Friday night. And keep smiling, it’s important. πŸ™‚

Hot boys in jock straps; another quiet day for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

When it comes to sexy garments, it’s hard to beat a jock strap, especially when it worn by a young man with a shapely and smooth pair of butt cheeks and a nice bulge in in the pouch. If the guy to the left here wereΒ myΒ boyfriend, I’d have him wear that jock strap frequently when we were a home alone so I couldΒ  squeeze his pretty bottom any time I felt like it. He’s a cutie with his smooth skin and pretty blue eyes. Definitely boyfriend material. πŸ˜‰

I slept in late this morning, after hosting a birthday celebration at a really nice restaurant last night. But I had to get up to meet a landscaping contractor who’s going to send a crew out to work on all my shrubbery beds, hopefully next week sometime. It’s work I ordinarily do myself once a year, but it’s hard on my back and knees, so I will pay t have it done this year.

Doesn’t the boy to the left look great in his jockstrap? He has just the body for it, and i’ll bet his boyfriend loves it when he wears the strap at home. πŸ™‚

Since today is Thursday, around 5:30 PM I will drive into the city to spend the evening with my best friend. We’ll drink a little beer and wine and order some takeout for our dinner. It’s always fun.

Have a nice Thursday evening, friends.

Another guy with amazing abs; fun night in store for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

If you like chiseled abs on young men, then I know you’ll enjoy the photo to the left here. What a beautiful guy, huh? Great skin and hair, pretty smile, nice muscles and a great set of rock hard abs. Who’d pass up a date with him? Certainly not me. πŸ˜‰

Well, I had a very productive afternoon today. I cleaned my kitchen, living room and office/TV room. I trimmed hedges and did some spot painting on my exterior trim where it was damaged by a mud dauber’s nest. And I planted a new shrub on my rear patio. I stayed busy.

But now it’s time for fun. In about 90 minutes I will drive to downtown St. Petersburg to treat two of my best friends to a birthday dinner in a swanky bistro with excellent food and wine. These guys are half my age and I have known them since they were in high school. They are straight, but very accepting of my gay sexuality. I have traveled with them multiple times, to go surfing, to Costa Rica, and to Mardi Gras in New Orleans. I’m lucky to have them as friends.

Have a nice Wednesday night, friends. πŸ™‚

Cute guys with sexy abs; quiet day on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

There’s nothing quite as sexy as a cute guy who owns a set of rippling abdominal muscles, the kind so firm and defined you could just about tap dance on them. Or maybe just lick them for an hour or so. πŸ˜‰

Sadly, the gift of rippling and defined abs is only granted to young men in their late teens and early 20’s. πŸ™

Well, I had a nice meal with my old friend. I dined on salad and ravioli, along with fresh-baked bread, and the food and wine were delicious. We had a nice, lengthy chat, and then I drove home to spend the rest of my evening on my back screened porch, drinking a little more wine and listening to my patio fountain gurgle.

I slept until ten this morning, and after I dined on a simple breakfast and brewed coffee, I read the morning newspaper and solved the L.A. Times crossword puzzle.

Outside it’s another postcard day, here on the island–sunny, still and about 80 degrees. I’m wearing shorts and a t-shirt and my doors and windows are all open so I can enjoy the serenity of my neighborhood.

Since I can’t do any form of exercise right now, due to my knee tendinitis, I will spend my afternoon performing household chores I have been putting off. Not very exciting, I know, but at least I will stay busy and not go stir-crazy. I have some correspondence to take care of and some phone calls to make, so I will stay occupied.

Tonight, I’m taking two of my best friends out for the birthday dinner, which I do every year. We’re going to a really nice restaurant in downtown St. Pete, and all three of us will have a great time.

Enjoy your Wednesday, everyone. πŸ™‚

Hot guys wearing backpacks; another perfect day on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

I love the way a hot young man looks when he is shirtless but wearing a backpack on his shoulders. The backpack makes him feel like he’s fully-clothed, but in fact it allows us to check our most every inch of the front of his torso and also his arm muscles. The guy to the left here looks so sexy I could easily follow him around all day, just staring at all that smooth flesh. Yummy …. πŸ˜‰

Well, I got up pretty early for me today–around 8:30 AM, and after I brewed coffee and ate my breakfast, I hit the keyboard and wrote fresh material for my novel-in-progress. It’s coming alongΒ  nicely, and I love the two main characters, Josh and Simon.

After a quick lunch, I drove into town to run errands, including getting a haircut (badly needed), the liquor store, the plant nursery to buy a shrub, and finally, the supermarket. By the time I got home it was well past three PM. I had to shower on my patio because I had to re-grout one corner of my shower stall and the grout has to dry for at least 24 hours before I can get it wet.

By the way, I’d love top watch the boy to the left here take a shower on my patio for about a half-hour. Hell, I’d even volunteer to scrub his back for him. πŸ˜‰ I love his lean body and the way his jeans are riding so low on his hips, so we can see the waistband of his boxer shorts. I also like his dark brown eyes. Yummy …. πŸ˜‰

Tonight, I am meeting am old friend for dinner at our favorite Italian restaurant, which is only a ten-minute drive from my house, and even closer to his. I love good Italian cuisine, and this place is as good as any place in town. We’ll have a couple of glasses of Chianti and savor our meal. It’s always pleasant.

Have a nice Tuesday night, friends. πŸ™‚
