Made for you

(Underwear ad, suggestive but not explicit text.)

Naked boys playing at liberty

October 24, 2016

About male photography featuring naked men horsing around together, mostly at the beach. The (four) X-rated images are in a posting on AZBlogX; they’re there because they show penises, but in (I maintain) an essentially innocent way, but still there are penises. On this blog we’ll get we’ll get buttocks and concealed penises, but without sexual charge, so the images are technically safe for kids and the sexually modest, but you might want to use your judgment.

There are points about sexuality, about social practices involving the body (notably, horseplay), and about the use of on leave and on liberty.

The whole thing started with a penguin-themed collage based on an image of naked men frolicking in the surf (#2 on AZBlogX). That led (after some hours of searching) to another image of the same men horsing around, an image carefully chosen by the photographer to be technically safe, one that got me to the source, a 1993 book of male photography, Shoreleave, by Andrew Kennedy.


One more remarkable tie

October 23, 2016

From Steven Levine on Facebook today:

A recent posting by Arnold Zwicky [about paisley ties] reminded me that several months ago I provided him with my nominations for what I considered the most unusual tie in my collection. It also reminded me of the egegious oversight on my part that I neglected to include this one, which on reflection probably wins the award: Late 40s tie with a print of workers sitting in a tree, each sawing off the very branch upon which they are sitting.

I don’t even have a wild fantasy explanation for this, much less a plausible one.

Paisley days

October 22, 2016

(Not much language in this.)

In a response (from me) to a comment on my June 14th posting “Most unusual ties” (about Steven Levine and his extraordinary collection of ties), I wrote:

What I have is a world-class collection of paisley and floral ties — gorgeous, rather than entertaining.

Herewith a small sampling of the paisley(esque) section, in mid-width ties (I also have skinny ties and big wide ties; I’ve lived through quite a few shifts in fashion.)


More Zwicky postings

October 17, 2016

There’s now a Page on this blog for things Zwicky (besides me): postings about people named Zwicky and things named Zwicky. In recognition, an assortment of things not already posted: on museli, a fanciful derivation of the surname (on a t-shirt), a low-budget mystery film, a Quebec eco-activist, and a Zwicky cheese man who’s moved from America’s Dairyland to serving the Big Apple.


Bring in ‘da Boyz, Bring in ‘da Funk

October 13, 2016

(A men’s underwear posting, racy but not outrageous.)

The Daily Jocks offer from 6/24 (I have a huge underwear backlog), with the ad copy and my caption:


Funky Trunks are back with brand new underwear and swimwear! Australian brand Funky Trunks always provided bright, bold designs and their new collection is no different. You will want to be seen in these, check out full range now!

News for penises: NCOD, Portlandia

October 11, 2016

(Some plain talk about male bodies and man-man sex, but nothing extravagant. Use your judgment.)

Yes, I will make a connection, via my guy Jacques Transue: our anniversary is National Coming Out Day, that’s today. Marky Mark will be involved (because sexy underwear), and finger pointing (thanks to Portlandia) and Kyril Bonfiglioli and men’s ties.


Masculine jaws of Wyoming

October 9, 2016

About square-jawed as a (high-) masculine physical characteristic, last discussed here back in August (in “Give me some men who are square-jawed men”), with reference to actors in the tv series Murdoch Mysteries (set in Toronto), especially Dylan Neal. Now it’s the series Longmire (set in northern Wyoming), featuring two lead actors with strongly masculine faces, physiques to match, and a strong silent presentation of self as well: Robert Taylor (no, not that Robert Taylor, but the Australian Robert Taylor) as Sheriff Walt Longmire of (the fictional) Absaroka County and Bailey Chase as his deputy Branch Connolly. (A third leading male character, the Cheyenne Indian Henry Standing Bear, is played by Lou Diamond Phillips, appreciatively discussed in a 11/22/15 posting that also outlines the Longmire show.)


Film fantasy

October 8, 2016

(Racy-gaysexy, but, I think, no more than that.)

Today’s Daily Jocks ad (for their Underwear Club, “Fresh underwear every month”), with my caption:


Sharp Suave
Stepped from the
Screening of
Rude Valentino at
Rough Flicks to
Saunter among the
Seats, giving
Himself to his
Hungry fans

The film meme is of the character who steps out of a film’s fantasy world and into the real world.


Naming his Essence

October 8, 2016

(Sexually suggestive, but not explicit.)

From Daily Jocks on 9/14, with its ad copy (which an Austraian friend found deeply embarrassing) and my caption:


Aussie Essence captures the spirit of living in the great land of Australia. From sweating it out on the land, to closing the big deal in the city and catching all the waves in between, we celebrate the diversity of backgrounds we all come from whilst being proud of the aussie culture.

Sweating on the station, he was known as
Ned (the Outlaw) — in the city, where he was
Made by tons of Aussies, they called him
AbsFab and PecMate — on Bondi Beach he was just
Salty Dog
