AZBlogX: offers of the body

July 6, 2015

On my X Blog, an illustrated piece on gay men offering their bodies for anal intercourse — mostly as bottoms, but sometimes as tops. Thoroughly X-rated.

Serving the penis

July 5, 2015

On AZBlogX, a posting “Blowjob, handjob”, with a hot naked Hispanic dude (plus blowjob caption by me); and a TitanMen Studios ad, with handjob negotiations going on (hanky code involved), plus some lyrics to Prince’s “Jack U Off”. Definitely X-rated.

Surprise!

July 5, 2015

Yesterday’s offer from the Daily Jocks people, with an intriguing pose and facial expression. I’ve supplied a caption.

I came back from lunch and
There he was, posing expectantly on
My couch, in his cute black
Mini-brief. The note said
TAKE ME I’M YOURS.
I think he’s a gift
From my buddies.

I Can’t Even

July 5, 2015

A follow-up to my posting “That goes without”, on an Amanda Hess piece in the NYT Magazine of 6/14, about the (largely) teenage use of “I can’t even” to convey being rendered speechless by strong emotion. Now to the letters section in the magazine for 6/28, which comes with two Tom Gauld cartoons illustrating reader comments.

Want to be an actor?

July 5, 2015

If so, then, apparently, you should arrange to have an injury that puts an end to the athletic career you were planning. The latest in what I now realize is a long series of similar stories (involving a variety of different sports), from the Wikipedia article on Miguel Ángel Silvestre:

He was going to become a professional tennis player, but he suffered an injury in a Hungarian tournament. He later decided to study kinesiotherapy until his aunt introduced him in the world of theatre.

For Silvestre it was tennis. For other actors, it was baseball, football, basketball, hockey, whatever. But then they found the theatre.

Herrera / Silvestre

July 5, 2015

(This weekend seems to be a Blog Lite period for me, with postings that have only a little to do with language, but a lot to do with men’s bodies and gay relationships.)

Xopher Walker reports that he has discovered from People En Español that Alfonso Poncho Herrera is in the new Netflix series, Sens8.

In the show, Herrera plays Hernando, the secret gay lover of Miguel Ángel Silvestre’s Sensate character Lito.

Shirtless body types

July 4, 2015

My recent postings on shirtlessness showed a fair range of body types for the extraordinarily fit, well-muscled men pictured there, from relatively slim to massive (on somatotypes, see here). And now comes a recently married couple illustrating the relatively slim end of the scale and also the Law of Attraction (“like attracts like”) in gay pairings: the ridiculously cute couple of Olympic skater Blake Skjellerup and designer Saul Carrasco:

(in the Queerty story “Blake Skjellerup Talks About His Husband, His Hawaii Wedding, And How Marriage Equality Is Changing The World”.

Yes, they can share their wardrobes.

LFL

July 4, 2015

You can pick up a lot of random information in popular genres, like detective fiction and police procedural television shows. Murder mysteries are typically set in some small special world, so that you can learn a lot about that world: English change-ringing, say, in Dorothy Sayers’s The Nine Tailors. Similarly for episodes of cop shows (understood broadly). So yesterday I was treated to an hour’s drama on CSI: NY about the Lingerie Football League (as it was then), in season 6, episode 13 “Flag on the Play” (first broadcast on 1/20/10). Some LFL players in action, in real life:

An odd cross between sexualized display of the female body and athletic contest.

Shark statues

July 4, 2015

Today’s Zippy has our Pinhead inspecting a shark statue:

(#1)

Knowing Bill Griffith’s practices, this piece of shark statuary surely is real, but I haven’t located it. On the other hand, I’ve discovered a huge vein of shark sculpture, statuary, and figurines.
