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.

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.

Steve Grand… nude.

Winding the clock back a few months to when the crazy Ice Bucket challenge was a big thing and Steve Grand, gorgeous talented country music singer who came out last year, posted a photo on Instagram of his version of the challenge. Not wanting to waste water and not having a bucket handy, Steve jumped into Lake Superior while on a tour. The good thing is that he did it nude. He said at the time there was a video but it’s taken your silly blogger here a few months to see it.

Sadly there isn’t a lot of light and the video is nice and modest, as you’d expect from someone in the public eye but Steve is definitely nude and still very definitely gorgeous in my eyes. It sounds like there are a few people watching him too.

The imagery of my sexuality

Bruce Weber is one of the most iconic image makers alive. He’s captured so many of the Hollywood celebrities that are working today along with defining the image of Abercrombie and Fitch. Before I realised my own sexuality I discovered the images of Mr Weber through Abercrombie and Fitch’s famous quarterly “catalogues”. Why was I looking at these guys the way I was? Of course I was trying to convince myself that it was because I wanted to have their beautiful bodies. I was clearly wrong.

Bruce’s imagery has come to be the definition of homoerotic male bonding. All those amazing looking men getting nude and frolicking around together in the name of sport. Of course the gay community fell for it hook line and sinker.

About the time I discovered his work for Abercrombie and Fitch, I also found the book Bear Pond. It’s a book so laden with beautiful nude men that I was as scared of it as I was aroused when I first saw it, deeply in denial of my own urges. Bruce, along with Herb Ritts (RIP) and Australia’s own James Houston, you have become my holy trinity of photographic inspiration.

Totally rocks my world

A while ago I found a short video of a hugely beefcake bodybuilder walking through nature in just a pair of boots. He’s much beefier than I usually go for but there is something I really like about guys walking around nude completely unselfconsciously. I know he’s a porn model from the old days of COLT Studios and that it’s his job but even so, it’s damn sexy.

Well I’ve just found the whole video. The music is incredibly cheesy and unsuited to the video and the bodybuilding posing at the end isn’t at all my thing but my mind takes me to the thought of that freedom to walk around for miles nude, just enjoying the sun and breeze on your body. It sure doesn’t hurt that he looks amazing.

Some sexy advertising

Now I don’t know anything about Acai or much detail about healthy eating apart from the fact that we need fruit and veggies and not too much bad stuff in our diets. What I do know is that these guys have got their marketing right. The nude guys will appeal to the women and the fact that there are two of them hanging out in close proximity will appeal to the gays. Yes they are straight judging by the one on the left moving his mate’s hand at the end but it seems a lot of gay men fantasise about straight guys turning anyway and we gay men seem to be obsessed with our bodies so healthy eating is a good incentive.

This is cheeky fun advertising and it’s hitting the mark for me. Now if only they’d just move those pesky props.

It would cause a riot

How on earth did I miss this? I haven’t been as good at checking out the products from AussieBum lately. I have quite a bit of underwear and if I look at their site I just buy stuff which I don’t need.

Seeing Andreas bouncing around in this very sexy Riot jock strap with his massive package and gorgeous butt hanging out in a locker room is just about perfection. Perfect would be lots more guys just like him all in that locker room but we are now delving into my fantasy land. The question I have is now, do I need a jock strap?

Are you a Stoneman?

There is a relatively new Aussie underwear brand on the scene called Stonemen. It’s for guys and girls and they are looking for new faces/packages to be in their promotional material. I posted this video a while ago when I first saw it but it’s such a cool video. You all know my feelings about friends being comfortable nude together and a bunch of friends skinnydipping being used to advertise underwear works for me.

The underwear is cheeky and features some cool prints on the fabric to make it stand out from the crowd. Check it out and jump on in! If you check out their page they are giving out a $100 gift voucher if they like your photo in your stonemen undies and why you love them so much. If you want to be one of their models, let me know and I’ll put you in touch!

Ross and Jamieson

Ross Watson has just released a new work which is another collaboration with actor and model Jamieson Caldwell. The new painting is featured in the middle above with two other paintings of Jamieson either side from Ross’ exhibition earlier this year. I’d not heard of Jamieson before but he’s making a name for himself taking on some interesting and varied rolesĀ  such as the Queen in Hamlet and now a play about an AFL player who likes to dress up as his alter-ego Carmen. Ross also tells me that Jamieson is Elton John’s favourite of all Ross’ models. We can see why Sir Elton might have an attraction.

Below is a video from the London opening of Ross’ exhibition, opened by the incredible Sir Ian McKellen who talks in the video about Ross work, as does the sexy Luke Evans who features in a piece. Luke is about to hit the big screen again as Dracula in the new adaptation of the story. I can only dream of having people of the caliber of Sir Ian McKellen at my exhibitions one day.

This gives me hope

Australia’s politicians have been embarrassing themselves with debate over security policy in our National Parliament in the past week or so, even suggesting that women wearing Burkas or head coverings should sit behind a glass divide even though they have gone through security checks to get into the building. Our own Prime Minister the ever embarrassing Tony Abbott has said he finds the Burka confronting.

Thankfully the team behind this video, a staged scenario of Anti-Islamic Bullying in public, has shown that your average Australian isn’t as gullible and ready to believe that all Muslims are terrorists as some would have us believe.

Beautiful…

Last week I heard about a new collaboration that Pink was a part of. Going by her real name Alecia Moore and Dallas Green (aka City and Colour) had spoken about working together for a while and very spontaneously they recorded some music which I have to say is absolutely gorgeous. It’s very different to her work as Pink but just as lyrically honest and raw. Their beautiful song “Break the Cycle” (below) is a song about her mother. I’ve preordered their Rose Av. album and listened to the first couple of tracks over and over. It’s such gorgeous haunting music.

As much as I read a lot of blogs and things online, music blogs aren’t on my list generally. So it was a really pleasant surprise to hear of new music from Pink. I don’t listen to her albums often but they are good when you are in the mood for them and I think she’s a very talented woman and so refreshingly unscripted and honest. This album I think will be a regular listen.

Will this be the summer?

for several years I’ve wanted to go surfing nude. I haven’t surfed since I was a teenager but I’d muddle my way through. The idea was born from a day at Alexandria Bay, Noosa in Queensland, watching a guy ride he waves on a long board nude as the day he was born.

Sadly the nude beaches in Sydney don’t have any surf so it will mean a weekend out of town which I have no problem with at all. Surfing nude just looks so free and fun.

This guy in the video is a pretty typical larrikin surfer who I have trouble understanding when hespeaks but I understand his nudity. Love it.

So much talent

Click baiting headlines are really frustrating when you are online. “This girl did something and you won’t believe what happened next” etc etc when really what you won’t believe is that someone got you to watch a shitty video where not a lot actually happens. Sadly I fall for those all the time. Today though I watched this video (below) of an X-Factor UK Audition. Of course the tv show and the website played up the sob story of the tragic loss of his brother. Apparently it is now the rules of reality tv that you can’t have a good audition unless there is a tragic sob story involved.

Jake here, has had some genuine tragedy in his life, losing his 19 year old brother. When the audition first started and Mel B stops him not that far into the song you think it’s over. After a few words and discussion from Simon Cowell et al, Jake gets to belt out a beautiful version of “Say Something” by Great Big World and to me, he does a fantastic job. He’s a very marketable package. He’s very good looking, seems genuinely polite and he can sing the hell out of the song. Let’s hope he gets a bit further than the auditions.

Could this be it?

Finding music appropriate for an aerial circus routine is something that I find really difficult. If I sit on a piece of music for too long without working it into a routine then I lose interest in it. The same is true if I try a routine to a piece of music and it doesn’t work. Rather than rework the routine I seem to throw the music away and start again.

Our teacher wants us to put together a routine for the end of term. Not for a public performance but just for each other. He also wants it to be close to five minutes long which is tough. That’s a long routine and will require lots of additional training to get through it which is good. I need to push my training and endurance anyway. This morning I have come up with two options. I’d always liked the Jack White cover of U2’s Love is Blindness but it’s only three and a half minutes so I put a minute of the original U2 version at the start before it goes into the bonkers angry Jack White version. I like it but I’m not sure it’s right.

The more likely option is Ed Sheeran “I See Fire” from the second Hobbit movie soundtrack. It’s the right length at just a smidge under five minutes and it builds beautifully from an almost acoustic folk song to an orchestral dramatic piece with moments to work with for drama in the routine.

A successful outcome

After seeing the very hard to watch video of a young man being beaten by his family for being gay a few weeks ago, it’s nice to see this video of parents completely accepting their twin sons coming out to them at the same time. One son they had suspected was gay, the other was a complete surprise. Their parents obviously have friends from a variety of walks of life when you listen to the conversation but as we know, that doesn’t always translate to acceptance. In this case, it did. Notice nothing quite distracts their dad from eating. Surely that’s about as accepting as it gets. “Yeah that’s great boys but I’m busy eating.”
