A late Christmas gift

February 4, 2016

I haven’t been attending to things properly, so I missed a gay Christmas gift from singer-songwriter and underwear model Steve Grand (discussed on this blog back on 7/11/13). a sweet and sexy cover of Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas is You” (lots of kissing, snuggling in bed). A still from the video, which you can watch here:

Holiday images

January 1, 2016

Two odd sets of holiday images: a superhero Xmas greeting, and BDSM images for both Xmas and New Year’s.

Zippy’s Eve

December 31, 2015

Today’s Zippy has Griffy and Zippy together for New Year’s Eve, apparently in Coney Island in 1951, though their minds seem to be in the present day (Griffy’s looking forward to 2016, and Zippy’s annoyed with Justin Bieber, as he often is):

(#1)

In the last panel, their minds roam back to 1892. Time is fluid in Zippyland.

boxboys and transitive bottoming

December 29, 2015

(Lots of plain talk about bodies and sexual practces, so not for kids or the sexually modest. But also plenty of stuff of linguistic interest.)

An ad for a Christmas sale on gay porn at an aggregation site for porn (of all sorts) that fills my mailbox with offers, most of which I just trash, but in this case… Here’s the ad, with the sale details cropped out:

(#1)

We’re left with six naked guys in Santa caps (ohhh, Santa baby!), their genitals covered by the (Christmas) packages and boxes they’re carrying. They’re presented as hot gay men cruising and admiring one another’s endowments — and in the case of one man, Gay 1, reaching into his neighbor’s box to handle its contents.

The sounds don’t quite match

December 26, 2015

Two Christmas cartoons involving puns — one very close, one pretty distant. A Scott Metzger cartoon (which came to me through the Tysonism page on Facebook) and the Mother Goose and Grimm of 12/20/11 (which came to me though the King Features site):

The C1R Christmas sale: Johnny Hazzard

December 25, 2015

(Some language things, but mostly more gay sex stuff, so not for kids or the sexually modest.)

From Channel 1 Releasing, this Christmas ad (cropped here to eliminate Johnny Hazzard’s cock and make the image WordPressable):

(#1)

I recognized the ad immediately: it’s exactly the same as last year’s Christmas ad, which I posted about on AZBlogX at the time, in the posting “C1R Xmas greetings” (so if you feel you really need to see Hazzard’s cock right now, you can click on that link).

Now a few words about the text of the ad, and then some about gay porn superstar Hazzard.

Bundling and the penile raphe

December 22, 2015

(There’s actually some language stuff here.)

Over on AZBlog X there’s a posting “Bundles of love”, about an ad for a holiday sale at the gay porn studio C1R. The sale offers bundles of C1R flicks, each with three or four DVDs on a theme, and the model in the ad is bundled in a scarf, against the winter weather, so there’s a little play on bundling here — but, well, the model is totally naked except for that scarf. The photo is really about his handsome face, his fit body, and of course its centerpiece, his weighty and desirable cock, which happens to have a prominent penile raphe (/réfì/), the ridge that runs up the underside of the penis and (in many men) is somewhat sensitive to stimulation, in a way that the rest of the shaft is not; just under the glans, the raphe is extraordinary sensitive, the source of much of the pleasure men get from their penis in sex.

The AZBlog posting also has a little story about how the penile raphe is metaphorically connected to plate tectonics.

Calendrical hunks

December 22, 2015

Two male-hunk calenders, one with an image for the Christmas season. Mr. December from the Meet the Bern calender, supporting Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders:

And the cover image from the Calendrier des Pompiers calender, with homoerotic male photography celebrating French firemen:

Odds and ends 12/20/15

December 20, 2015

(There’s some gay sex stuff in the last section, not for kids or the sexually modest.)

Four items that have come my way recently, all with some language play in them. Two are Christmas-related: a Green Eggs and Ham tie and a Rhymes With Orange cartoon. One has a jokey wine label. One has a wonderful invented name for a gay pornstar (and that leads to Arab characters in gay porn).

A Montalbán Hanukkah

December 7, 2015

Yesterday’s Rhymes With Orange, with a POP (phrasal overlap portmanteau):

(#1)

That’s The Wrath of Khan + Hanukkah. (Hilary Price is fond of POPs.) Hanukkah began at sunset yesterday — note the one candle already lit in  the menorah — and will continue for eight days, one day for each of the eight branches of the menorah. The admonitory figure in the cartoon is the villainous Khan from Star Trek, as played by Ricardo Montalbán. By order of Khan, Spock and Kirk will get no Hanukkah gelt or other desirable presents, just socks. Oy
