In service to Erebus

(Men’s bodies and mansex, not for kids or the sexually modest.)

Yesterday’s Daily Jocks ad, for the Erebus line of underwear from the 2Eros company, an ad that spins out an fantasy of delicious dark sexiness. Two montages showing the new Nightmare color (dark violet) and the new Underworld color (dark blue) — earlier colors are Darkness (black) and Inferno (red) — with my perfervid caption below the fold:

(#1) Darko in Nightmare

(#2) Darko in Underworld

Darko serves Lord
Erebus as his
Acolyte in the
Subterranean world of
Secret mansex

Guiding men to
Delicious release in a
Dirty mensroom stall, to a
Noisy coupling in a
Dim orgy room at the
Gay baths, to that
Perfect explosive moment on the
Altar of sex in the
Bushes at night

Smells of crotch sweat,
Tastes of sweet salty cum

Eyes down in
Shameful pleasure,
Eyes forward in
Insolent knowledge of
Men’s desires

The ad is selling the fantasy of men’s bodies as objects of sexual desire —  that’s just standard for most brands of premium men’s underwear these days — but it’s also wrapping this in an elaborate fantasy of delicious dark dirtiness, made somewhat less outrageous by framing it all as coming from Greek myth. My caption plays up the outrageous.

The myth. From Wikipedia:

(#3) Portrait of Erebus, by Lukartig on DeviantArt

In Greek mythology, Erebus, also Erebos (Greek: Ἔρεβος, “deep darkness, shadow”), was often conceived as a primordial deity, representing the personification of darkness; for instance, Hesiod’s Theogony identifies him as one of the first five beings in existence, born of Chaos.

The name Darko. It suits the character in my caption, but in fact the name has nothing to do with darkness. From Wikipedia:

Darko (Serbian Cyrillic: Дарко) is a common South Slavic masculine given name. It is derived from the Slavic root dar ‘gift’.

Think of Darko above as bringing the gift of darkness to troubled souls.
