It's fascinating. The more you look, the more there is to puzzle over.
Have I missed anything? (Check the uncensored photo below and let me know.)
Paco y Manolo are a photographic duo who have a magazine called Kink that's celebrating its fifth anniversary with a sale on past issues. Some issues are not as cheap as others and some come with a photographic print of the main subject of that issue, but all can be found here.
To my eye, these guys have a great technique that has resulted in images that strike just the right balance between art, porn and beauty.
Some favorite images of mine, including the uncensored version of the photo above, after the jump ('cuz they NSFW. 'Course!)...
Best posted "after dark"...posts with pornographic subject matter here on FYF are a logical extension of our mission to provide a gay perspective like none other - or at least most like our gay perspective? - by addressing head-on an often vast aspect of a homosexual's existence; i.e. - sex and sexuality.
Unfortunately with pornographic images, video and stories, the end result is nearly as often frustrating as it is fantastic. Having spent the first 27 years of my life relying solely on pornography to supplement my fantasy of sex and help me to stave off my horniness, I've learned this lesson first...*ahem*...hand.
And, with that said, I think you've gotten a fairly good glimpse at of what our coverage of porn, sex and sexuality will consist.
For starters? Here are a few of my favorite (fantasy) things. (It goes without saying the photos/content following the jump are NSFW or anywhere public unless you're on Fire Island, in West Hollywood, or on your phone at Splash.
From this article on the end of the subway car reef program (There's others in it almost equally as good.).
Last week we learned that our readers like pictures of guys eating bananas. We like to make our readers happy, so without further ado:
Feel free to send us more!
New York Times photographer Ben Sklar captured images of streetwalking SXSW attendees about whom Tom Jackson and Elizabeth Bristow (or maybe Josh Verduzco?) wrote:
"The rest of the year, fashion in Austin can be post-collegiate casual, but during SXSW, people turn it out."
I'm not buying it, whoever wrote that. Still pretty blatantly post-collegiate in my eye. Very little turnt out that I spot. That said? The photo above caught my eye and inspired this reaction: "Heeeey Goddess! Hit me up when you're off at the bar... Ok?".
You'd better, Austin.
Photographer Irina Werning's delightful "Back to the Future" series involves having her subjects recreate childhood photos (and poses), including this young woman who has OWNed this pose since her youth!
Ok, so yeah...M.I.A.'s been there. So has 2 Live Crew. Now Edwin Ramoran takes his turn co-opting the famous Full Metal Jacket scene/quote by curating a show of new works by contemporary artists from Hanoi, Los Angeles and New York. Methinks the result gets at the Southeast Asian experience of gender, sex and its myriad forms in ways neither of the two recording artists were able (or even intended...2 Live Crew.).
For the show, Tai Chi Alfonso teamed up with Isauro Cairo to create a series of photos of his Black Poodle alter-she-go. Shot in Miami over the New Year, the pics are SICK.
So...check out the show starting tonight at 6pm (and keep a look out for more of The Poodle down the road).
The Krause Gallery is located at 149 Orchard (at Rivington).
