Bedroom eyes

(Below the fold, a hot guy flashing bedroom eyes in nothing but a white low-rise basic brief that leaves little to the imagination: a matter of taste.)

A Daily Jocks flash sale — their term — for the Labor Day weekend. Work it, thick Nipaman!

I post this here for Nipaman’s lean, muscular body (very much to my taste) and of course for his remarkable bedroom-eyes performance, but also as a playful release at the end of a 9/2 day that began with a 12:30 am automated message informing me that my adjunct appointment at Stanford (and my use of Stanford e-mail, library services, and more) would be terminated on 9/4 (actually, the library services — access to the OED! — had already been terminated on 9/1), setting in motion 8 hours of heart-pounding Woo(l)ly Mammoth Crisis Time, temporarily resolved by my department’s paying for a year of these services for me while the issue of my appointment by the dean is settled.

But now I am yours, Nipaman. Work your sex magic on me.

(#1) Nipaman in bedroom-cruise mode; the narrowed, lowered eyes and intense gaze are part of the effect, but has anyone actually studied the details of how this works?

Now, for a mutual bedroom gaze, a famous cinematic one — for extra value, combined with lustful eating:

(#2) Tom Jones (Albert Finney) and Mrs. Waters (Joyce Redman) drink and eat at one another with lust in their hearts and eyes in the 1963 movie Tom Jones: a chicken leg, an oyster, a juicy pear

I much enjoyed the Fielding novel, but I adored the movie. I saw it I think 5 times in 1963. Well, I was 22 when it came out, and it was the beginning of the 60s.

As it happens, some decades later I had a lunch date in a trendy restaurant with a young man, just for the two of us to get acquainted, and things developed along the lines in #2, though our dining was much more decorous. But equally intense. Tom and Mrs. Waters ended up in bed at the Inn at Upton; Roger and I ended up enjoying a nooner at a pleasant university-area motel in Columbus OH. It was deeply satisfying.

    I think I remember white asparagus as part of that scene, too.

    Also from the movie, but relevant to Nipaman: Tom Jones’s drunken ballad for the abusively bullying, puritanical tutor Mr. Thwackum: “Sing, Thick Thwackum, Thy Bounty Has Flown” — with the slang sense of thick:

    adj. thick: … 4 informal of low intelligence; stupid: he’s a bit thick | I’ve got to shout to get it into your thick head. (NOAD)

    … while Nipaman appears to be dimensionally thick, fireplug-style, in the dick department.

    Over on Facebook, in response to a reader’s having read Nipaman as Norman, as in Norman Bates, from the Bates Motel, I explain:

    Nipaman’s name (‘nipple man’ borrowed into Japanese) is a play on the name of the Japanese anime character Anpanman, roughly ‘bread man’ — a man made of a kind of Japanese bread.

    Yes, obscure and convoluted.

    If it becomes an issue again, OED access via the county library system is easy, even if Palo Alto has its own city library: “Library eCards are available to anyone living in Santa Clara County.”
