To exist

August 28, 2015

The current ad from Daily Jocks, with an intensely reflective underwear model and an AMZ caption:

In the ghostly green-
Blue light of the
Organometron, Brandon
Became obsessed with the
Power and beauty of
His crotch.

On the fashion front

August 27, 2015

(Another excursion into displays of the male body.)

Recent hot news in the fashion world: tennis great Rafael Nadal has moved from mere sexy (mostly shirtless) fashion modeling (for Armani) to hard-core underwear modeling (for Tommy Hilfiger). Here he is, just barely in his Tommys and projecting steamy desirability:


This is a performance, entirely self-aware, of body display, designed to provoke desire in straight women and gay men and to inspire envious imitation in men, straight or gay (as I sometimes say, the aim is for the first to fantasize doing him, the second being him). Rafa presents himself just the way men who make their livings as underwear models do; see my other postings on underwear models, for example my Daily Jocks postings.

Rafa is good at this, and he’s experienced: see photos #1, #3, and (from his Armani days) #4 in my “Tennis hunks” posting.

Meanwhile, a fair number of celebrated male athletes have done modeling, and of course they’ve posed for photographs for publications like Men’s Health and magazines in their sports (where they serve as models of athleticism and fitness), in addition to being caught unposed in other photos. But very few of these men achieve anything like Rafa’s presentation of self, and most wouldn’t think of trying. At the moment, Rafa is the Mark Wahlberg of jock fashion.

Now for some examples.


The Monthly Underwear Club

August 11, 2015

(Mostly about men’s bodies. Not much language.)

Today’s offering from Daily Jocks introduces the Monthly Underwear Club:

Fresh underwear,
Every month.


Dick Absalom used to deliver for
The Fresh Veggie Club, but then
He decided to follow
His name.


A dash of ornamental hunkiness

July 25, 2015

(Not about language.)

Caught in an episode of Charmed — season 2, episode 9, “Ms. Hellfire” (1/13/00) — the symbol of solid but amiable masculinity Antonio Sabàto, Jr. Cast against type as a villain, but a charming, sexy villain.


Three on the prowl

July 24, 2015

(The latest ad from the Daily Jocks people, with a caption from me. Not about language.)

Their new jockstraps
Unleashed their
Raw bestial spirits.

Waterside trio

July 12, 2015

(Not about language.)

The latest from the Daily Jocks people:

Killer abs and pecs:
A dance for three

Oblivious to his
Effect on men
Dominates the beach

Wrests his gaze
Away from the
Body he lusts after

Freshly ensnared by
Desire for Tony
Embracing him

It will
Not end well.


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
I think he’s a gift
From my buddies.

Happy Ending

June 26, 2015

(On the language of sex — but with a fair amount of sex, so this posting might not be to everyone’s taste.)

“Happy Ending” was the header on this e-mail from the Daily Jocks people yesterday, announcing the last hours of their big sale; the caption below is mine.


He got him off, then he
Kissed him off.


It just got bigger

June 23, 2015

From the Daily Jocks people, announcing a sale (the savings just got bigger) and also toying with the idea of penis enlargement. And then there’s a point about the semantics / pragmatics of just, which I’ll get at by adding three captions to this photo:


Get ready for an ambush…

June 11, 2015

(On the underwear and gay sex beat, not much about language.)

The heading on yesterday’s ad from the Daily Jocks people, with this arresting image:

The ad copy:
