That journalist who wrote the comments is an idiot.

It is an outrageous rewriting of history and social mores.

Men clinging to one another in portrait photographs was nothing strange. It has nothing to do with them being gay lovers.

Eugene Sandow, 1894 - Souvenir Strip of the Edison Kinetoscope

A different sort of solo portrait than featured before, this cabinet card from the 1890s shows an impressively muscular fellow proudly displaying his Sandow medal, sadly without a caption of his own name.

Providing an artist with the pose reference for an equestrian portrait or sculpture, maybe even a single figure within a cavalry battle scene, this model sits very upright and poised - though as a rider myself I cannot help but notice that his stirrups are adjusted far too long!

It has been an awfully long time since I shared a photograph of Ange Camilli, 1st prize winner in an early physical beauty contest (later to become the body building still with us today). Published - sadly all censored - as a set of postcards circa 1920, by Alfred Noyer of Paris.

Nice R84. There is something so erotic and enticing about the old beefcake photos. It just works on a different level than today's porn world.

Personally, I'm glad there is both.

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
