Hunk of the Month - Big Jock

This is Joakim and he has his own blog  StorJocke on tumblr, where he talks about body building, thongs and sex with a refreshingly positive attitude. He is very proud of his big butt and not without reason as these pictures show.

Joakim has a gift for using his clothing to make a picture good, there's a spontaneous 'caught in the act', undressed look here that is very sexy. The shaping of the muscle vest between his shoulder blades mirrors the shape of the thong, creating a nice symmetry.

One of my favourite images, the plunging line of the thong shows off Joakim's butt to perfection and the direction it's pointing in speaks for itself! This is a fine addition to my 'studs in olive underwear' collection, the colour suits fair skin. It's a picture of a very ordinary everyday scene, but would make a nice basis for a picture of a prisoner despondently eating a lonely meal before his next 'challenge'.
(if the link above doesn't work search on 'olive' to find my other posts on olive underwear)

More domesticity here. The apron adds a slight suggestion of subservience in the carrying out a mundane job. Might that be connected to the purplish hue of those mighty butt cheeks? Very mitchmen-esque! The slight twist to Joachim's torso as he bends to his task produces a beautiful body shape and neck line. The camera loves him. Bondage fans will like the neck halter and knotted strings (with strategically dangling ends).


More interesting clothing. Joakim talks about being an alpha male in his blogs, but there's a boyish charm to some of his images that doesn't really fit that tag. The crossed arms and body language here are quite defensive but serve to highlight some impressive biceps. I suspect opinions might differ about such well-developed thighs, they produce rather squat proportions (the clumpy boots add to that effect). However I do quite like the way the legs balloon out of his restricting shorts. This square cut of leg also enhances limbs of more modest size. 

There's nothing boyish about this pose. Although the long socks have sporting connotations you can't escape the associations with more feminine garb. Cloaking Joakim's legs alone highlights the absence of clothing elsewhere and is sufficiently unusual, particularly on a man to create a significant erotic charge. As in the last picture, the square top draws attention to the shape and bulk of his thighs but in this case it gives subtle, added emphasis to the nakedness between his legs.

Joakim has a rugby player's physique and the jock strap is a natural accessory for him, they always look good on big men (more about that here or click on the jockstrap label below). This endearing, informal pose has won him many fans.
I do love his neck!

Joakim could probably put you straight on the old adage about men who wear glasses.  
This is a stunningly sexy pose which also utilises the considerable, but underestimated, erotic power of another everyday item - the humble polo shirt - look how it shows off his muscular arms.
Oh, and his ass too, didn't notice.

Another disarming domestic pose. Even chunky alphas use body lotion it seems. Without clothing you can see the full length of Joakim's legs and the proportions look good. 

Possibly the raunchiest, most alpha, pose of the lot. The boots and casual stubble give Joakim a nice tweak of masculinity and lends an air of serious sexual purpose. The legs might be splayed open invitingly with the thong pointing the way but his half-turned head produces a pose that is challenging, not submissive.

See lots more thongs (including shiny ones!) and butt pix at Joakim's tumblr blog StorJocke

My thanks to the itinerant but never boring blog 'Roids and Rants' for bringing Joakim to my attention.

Tom's Bar Predators - a new addition

Tom of Finland - Sketch of Bar Scene
Whilst researching my recent series of articles on Tom of Finland, I came across this sketch and it reminded me of his well known Bar Predator's series, discussed here in 2012. It was the figure on the right that triggered this thought, his jaunty cap and upturned collar is very much in the same mould as that group (see below). The bar itself (with the barman in a cameo role) and the figure bent over it also fit the original scenario quite neatly.
On closer inspection I also thought I could see a chain on the same biker's left shoulder, but that may be wishful thinking. The most compelling evidence though must be the tear in his T-shirt revealing his right nipple (see above and below). The other biker looks as though he has a beard in the new scene, which would be wrong, but it's possible this is just evidence of a correction of the jaw line, beards are fairly rare in Tom's work.
. - Bar Predators 1

If my reasoning is correct (and I make no claims to 'discovering' this picture) it resurrects the argument as to why Tom never finished this widely admired series. It's not hard to imagine why this particular picture didn't go any further, there's someting of a hole in the middle of the composition although this could probably be fixed - by lowering the viewpoint or bringing the cop in closer for example. The cop's pose and garb shown here feature in many of Tom's images and it's interesting that this is the only part of the sketch which is anything like complete, illustrating Tom's obsession with it. For my money the bikers are much more interesting, but that's just my obsession!

You can see the extended series in it's entirety at the revised version of my original Bar Predator's article.

A Space Cadet is Chastised

Mitchell - Space Cadet Chastised

In a far distant Galaxy that time had forgotten, 
a Space Cadet from the visiting Starship 'Mantopia'
 is arrested  by the locals for not concealing his offensive hair.
He is sentenced to 5,000 pulses of Laser Tit Augmentation Torture.
The rest of the crew (all brunettes) look on in envy. 

I rarely do Spacemen, but there's another example in this blog - The Astronaut
which uses similar designs.

Men Sharing Clothes 18 - Cut-offs and Cowboys

Doug Courtney
 Getting different models to pose in the same clothes is nothing new as these pictures from the AMG era show. You get the impression that the set-up then was pretty casual then and the men picked up off the street, so there must have been some interesting reactions when they were asked to put on someone else's skanky cut-offs - without having any underwear on. Later they would realise just how much previous wearers had perspired under studio lights. Perhaps that explains the less than joyous expression on the boy's face in the picture below - or maybe it's just the draught from that open door.

The models in these pictures seem far less muscular and sensual than modern day imagery but these pair are well developed and trim, it's the photographic style that is different. Model No 2 whose name I haven't discovered seems to be raging with testosterone and his unthreatening, boy next door  appeal is timeless.

I discovered this image recently, Doug Courtney again, I think, showing his torso muscle to better effect.
