So this is a thing now

Warning, this post has sexual footage in it and it’s STRAIGHT sex. Sorry for that but you don’t really see anything more graphic than non explicit humping and some boobies.

Drone Boning is apparently a thing now. Drone Boning is the first ever porn movie to be filmed using drones. The result is actually quite beautiful but it’s more like a travel advertisement than a porn movie. As I said you don’t really see much other than humping, bums and boobs which while it’s beautifully shot and surrounded by spectacular views, if I’m watching porn I want a bit more well, porn.

Anyway, check it out and let me know what you think.

But first let me take a #nakedshowerselfie

Jack Mackenroth is a hella big spunk. He’s also an HIV campaigner and openly HIV+ himself. The former Project Runway contestant is a regular on the gay blogosphere and usually not wearing much, for which we are eternally grateful Mr Mackenroth.

In what he’s hoping will become a new version of the Ice Bucket Challenge or Cock in a Sock challenges that have done the rounds this year he’s promoting the Naked Shower Selfie challenge. Those challenges were aimed at raising money for charities. Unlike those challenges Jack’s challenge isn’t trying to raise money, it’s fighting stigma and challenging the language we use on hookup and dating apps like Grindr. Jack has taken issue and very rightly so with the word “clean” on profiles instead of negative implying that people who have HIV are unclean or less than. I’ve seen it myself and it made me uncomfortable to read it. Let’s face it, the people that are likely to write the word “clean” to describe themselves or their prospective partner requirements aren’t going to be writing “I’m clean but I don’t mind your status” whereas I have seen negative but poz friendly several times now which is encouraging.

Striking a balance between promoting safer sex practices and staying HIV- with reducing stigma against HIV+ guys is always going to be tough but maybe a cheeky stream of photos of naked men in the shower will go part of the way to helping. I say bring it on.

Stand up against Domestic Violence!

Today is White Ribbon day here in Australia. It’s the day that we all pledge to do our part to stamp out domestic violence.  Some horrendous statistics were released today about domestic violence here in Australia, which is sadly on the rise. One woman ever week is killed in Australia by her current of former partner. One per week? I had no idea it was that high. One woman in three will experience domestic violence.

Thankfully along there is a growing awareness of the problem and the creep-extraordinaire “pick up artist” Julian Blanc was deported from Australia after a huge outcry about his seminars. What was truly revolting to me was the amount of guys who wanted to learn his demeaning and degrading techniques. What do these men think of their own mothers and sisters? Would they tolerate men treating them the way they are learning to treat women from guys like Julian?

If you want to learn how to treat women, ask a woman. I grew up in a family with strong women all around me. The men in their lives treated them with courtesy, respect and love. They were equals and as such, even though I’m a gay man and I’m not trying to sleep with women, I have learned to treat women the same way as my father and grandfathers did their wives, daughters and sisters.

It’s very tough for women who are being abused to break the cycle and get out but if you know anyone who you think is, please make sure they know they have a safe place with you.

Paul is the winner!

After two rounds of voting, the winner has been decided. Congratulations to Paul for being selected as the most popular Self Portrait. This was one of my favourites as it had so many layers to it with Paul’s contemplative reflection, the view of the harbour with the stormy looking clouds being broken by the sunset. Paul now wins a print of Peter’s “Kiss” portrait from the previous challenge. Thanks to everyone for taking part in the challenge. One of the things I love about running this blog is the interactions I have with the readers.

It’s happening!

I sent my boss and email last week asking for 3.5 weeks off for my trip to Europe next year and he’s given a verbal ok. He doesn’t like giving that much time off but with this much notice and for a trip to Europe he is ok with it. Today I filled out the booking form for a Saltyboys cruise in Croatia. On my last post about this trip someone commented that the trip was likely to be full of old fat Australian and American circumcised men. So? Firstly I have been told that the usual clients on these cruises are in their 30’s and 40’s, just like me. Secondly, I’m not ripped or body beautiful so why should I care if people are carrying a bit of extra weight? Thirdly, I’m circumcised and have no issue with either option on those around me.

This cruise is something I’ve wanted to do for a long time and I am dying to go. I will leave in exactly 7 months tomorrow if I book the flights that I’ve discussed with the travel agent. Seeing some dear friends in Sitges for the first time in about 9 years is going to be amazing. They are very dear friends that I don’t have the opportunity to see very much obviously being so far away.

Having said my piece about it not being important what my shipmates on the cruise look like, I will certainly be trying to get fit before I go. I want to represent Australia well after all and if the boat is full of hotties, who am I to complain?

Another tie breaker is needed!

The voting on the Self Portrait Challenge has closed and we have a tie! With 43 votes each you all seemed to really like Mikael’s modest nude self portrait and Paul’s very layered contemplative self portrait. So we go to the polls again. I’m only giving you 5 days to vote on this one to decide the winner. I’d be happy to see either of these images win. Which ever of these two images that you decide should win, by popular vote will win a print of Peter’s winning portrait from the last challenge.

Which of these two do you prefer?

  • 2 - Paul (52%, 186 Votes)
  • 1 - Mikael (48%, 172 Votes)

Damn sexy Aussie

Once again People Magazine has named it’s Sexiest Man Alive and once again it’s an Aussie guy. Chris Hemsworth, aka THOR has taken out this year’s title beating out another Chris who was apparently quite a favourite with the public (me included) Chris Pratt. This year the title is all Hemsworth’s and rightly so. He comes across as a genuine knockabout Aussie guy living a great life with his wife and kids. How popular are those kids going to be at school having Thor for a dad?

Chris bared his gorgeous butt in the movie Rush a year or so ago but sadly made some comment that that would be it for on screen nudity. Shame. It seems a terrible waste to have that body and not show it off a lot more. Congratulations Chris.

A WHOLE lot of sexy

Following a bunch of photographers and models on instagram and on other sites means there is a constant stream of delicious eye candy primed to give me visual diabetes. Luke Austin is a very talented Aussie photographer now living and working in the U.S. and through his work (above) I’ve discovered one of those guys that just comes along every now and then that just completely does it for me. Clearly I know nothing about what he’s like in person but on a purely physical level he’s certainly doing a lot of good things for me.

As I’ve said before, I’m not usually one for a lot of tattoos on a guy but, maybe it’s because of his dark skin but they don’t worry me in the slightest. His name is Kevin Carnell and he’s a model living in the U.S. The photo on the bottom right was taken during his birthday celebrations in the Caribbean. The full length shot is available on his tumblr and from it I’m guessing that the lovely Mr Carnell is comfortable nude. A trait I hold dear.

Apart from the obviously ridiculously beautiful body, why is it that some guys just appeal so much and someone who may even look quite similar, can do so much less to turn you on?

Just being nasty

A guy I have known vaguely for about 5 years now is fairly vocal on social media about HIV Awareness in general and aiming to get people as educated as possible. It’s never been confirmed to me and I have no need to know, but I’m fairly certain from things I’ve seen him post that he is HIV Positive. Someone obviously has a grudge against him as a few weeks ago they decided to hack his page and post a status that was something along the lines of “I’m an HIV+ bareback slut” There was more to it but I can’t remember the wording and I don’t want to mislead.

The only thing that this person could possibly have hoped to achieve is to HIV Shame my friend. As I’ve said, my friend is very vocal on social media about HIV and while he doesn’t say he is positive, he certainly doesn’t try and tell anyone that he’s not. His HIV status, or anyone’s for that matter, is no one else’s business unless you are going to have sex. I can’t actually even guess as to why someone would choose to try and shame someone about their HIV status on social media. Was it someone who had been turned down by my friend? Was it someone who feels like he might have been exposed? I have no idea.

A person’s choice to disclose their status, their sexuality or even if they like the Kardashians (god forbid) is their own choice and it shouldn’t be taken from them. Thankfully my friend handled the situation very swiftly and cleanly without any of the drama that their shamer was no doubt hoping for.

The europeans show us how once more.

I’ve often lamented the lack of guys willing to try social nudity and moaned about the lack of models willing to go frontal. This video shows that Europe is still way ahead of Australia and the U.S. with a couple of mates happily being filmed nude jumping into the water from a building. They just don’t seem to care.

Last week I did have a pleasant surprise however when I put out a call on facebook for guys willing to pose full frontal. I’m hoping to secure a feature in a future edition of Dylan Rosser’s TMF Magazine and Dylan likes to feature full frontal as, let’s face it, it sells. Surprisingly, I had a few guys put up their hands to do it which is good as I need a variety of guys and images to showcase should the feature happen.

One guy that has put his hand up to do it is Nathan that I have already photographed for my Tribal series. He’s been featured on Themaleform recently in all his glory and he’s not shy. Nathan and I were talking about the shoot and because he’s already been on Themaleform he can’t be on there again so we are going to do a series of photographs that hopefully tell a bit of a story and the plan is to do a video to go with it. I’ve had the thought to do a video to go with a shoot for some time now. Not just a behind the scenes like I have on my vimeo page but a little mini movie featuring the model. Now I just need to get it all happening.

Didn’t all go to plan

Sorry for the break in transmission folks. I don’t like to go so long without posting on the blog but things didn’t all go to plan this weekend. On Friday night I took off out to my friend’s property a few hours out of Sydney. On Saturday we did the Tough Mudder “race” which is a 20km course with 20 obstacles ranging from crawling under nets, to wading through mud, jumping off 5 metre high structures into water etc. One of our team was having problems with her ankles so we ended up walking 90% of the course which couldn’t be helped.

Then when I went to leave my friend’s property yesterday I asked him to have a listen to my car as it had started to make some noise. Turns out the timing belt was about to go and if it went while I was driving it would have cost more to fix than was reasonable for a car of that value and age. The car was towed away and I had to stay an extra night and miss today at work. Not all bad but a long day today was in order as my friend had lots of errands to do on his way back to Sydney so what is usually a three hour trip became a six hour trip. Such is the life of running a country property. It’s such a beautiful spot out there though so waking up there this morning was not exactly a hardship.

My mate and I decided that we are going to do another challenge similar to Tough Mudder that we’ve heard about. It’s not as long but has more obstacles which is what we enjoyed out of the event this weekend. It’s nearly a year away. Let’s see if I can squeeze in some training this time.

There are perks to these events. My god there were some fit hot men running around out there. The photo above of me after the race clearly proves that I was sore and tired and not one of the hot ones that appeared to do it easily.

About to book the trip

Yesterday I took myself off to the travel agent to check out the prices of flights to Europe for my planned adventure to Europe next year. I’m still waiting to hear how much time I can get off work for the trip from my boss but I’ve asked for 3.5 weeks so that I can spend a good amount of time with my friends in Sitges and then in Copenhagen afterwards. All of that is going to be after I go on my much dreamed about sailing trip around Croatia with Saltyboys. Sailing nude along the coast of Croatia will be fulfilling a dream of a nude sailing holiday that I’ve had for ages. I can’t wait.

At this stage I’m going on my own and will just meet whoever is on the trip when I get there but it would be nice to have a friend along. Sadly no one seems to be available or have the money.

Pick your favourite Self Portrait

The entries are in and it’s time to get your vote happening. Just to clarify, the four images I posted last night are NOT part of the competition. They are just really nice self portraits that I have found online.

As usual, when you are voting for your favourite entry, keep in mind the idea behind the challenge. Whoever wins the challenge will donate a print of their winning image to the winner of the next so it will be on the wall of a stranger. Keep in mind the overall visual appeal and creativity of the image and whatever makes you feel good. Click here to look at all the entries.

Above is a cheeky self portrait I posted to Instagram last night. My housemate is away so I took the opportunity to wander around nude. As I am now.

Entries are now closed

The deadline for the self portrait challenge has come and gone and tomorrow evening I’ll be starting the voting process to determine the winner. There have been some stunning entries in this challenge as always. It’s fascinating to see how people choose to present themselves in a self portrait and I often wonder, if I don’t know them, how accurate it is.

To go with this post I’ve chosen a few nude self portraits that I like just to keep with the tone of the blog and the theme of the challenge. From left to right we have regular aussielicious contributor Hiram, then Lars Stephan. Next is the very famous but sadly long deceased Robert Mapplethorpe. This was one of his more modest self portraits. He famously shot a self portrait facing away from the camera wearing chaps and turning to look over his shoulder at the camera as he shoves the handle of a long bull whip up his arse. Lastly on this roll call of cool self portratists is the very pagan, sensual Mikel Marton.

So free!

I found this video today and I know I’ve posted over and over each year about THIS being the year that I finally go surfing nude, but this really made me want to go out there and do it. This guy just looks so free which is the feeling I got the first time I saw someone surfing nude. Surfers are always talking about how alive and free they feel when they surf. Add to that the freedom of being nude and it has to be a good experience right?

By now you’ll have noticed that in that first paragraph I was writing about a video and there’s no video on this post. That’s because when I went to write that post, tired after a long day, last night I realised that the video on youtube wouldn’t allow embedding. Then I found another one of a heavily tattoed older guy surfing free and loving it and thought I’d post that. Again, no luck. All the other nude surfing videos are really bad quality or I’ve shared them before so I opted for photos.

Maybe I’ll have to just finally get off my arse and go nude surfing and make a video myself. I’m not sure why people restrict sharing of their video even though it’s freely available to watch online. It seems a shame really. Both videos of two very different guys are cool short fun videos.
