Uniforms, Undergear,
Swimwear, Soldiers & Sportswear, Wrestlers & Workmen!
Sometimes it's the clothing that makes the man. In fact, sometimes that's exactly what makes him your type or mine. Beefcake photographers knew it: notice how often a sailor cap or a pair of army boots changed merely a nude model into a "real character". Even today's pornography fabricates stagy little stories and drags out cheap costumes to arouse those fantasies of ours that go beyond the simple mechanics of sex. But none of these contrivances ever capture the feel of sneaking a peak at the real thing: shirtless workmen on the roof next door, Speedo-clad volleyball players, firemen at the A&P. This section is devoted to just that: the real thing, the ingenuous, the artless art of the male as sexually attractive object in candid photography. These images have been culled from archives, photo albums, and bins of curling, old snapshots: formal military portraits, quick shots of buddies rough-housing, vacation photos of past lovers on the beach. Learn more about early male nude photography by visiting other sites, reading book reviews and purchasing titles of interest from our Links & Books page.
