Leather Sex Appeal - 26

It would be remiss of me to ignore the role of tattoos in the leather culture, although I guess it's really a fetish in it's own right. I appreciate modest tattoos on the arms as practised by soldiers and sailors the world over but I confess that large body tattoos don't float my boat.
It's that 'more is less' thing I have.

Fortunately this man is also displaying some interesting leather gear. The double strap pants and Bowie belt are nicely suggestive of bondage and although I'm dubious about gaps between belts and pants it does create an interesting bulge in this case!

A similar image to No 1 in this series, but this one shows off the model's muscular upper body and - a particular point of interest for me - his neck. The chaps are tighter too which may appease one of my correspondents! There's a surfeit of leather here but the Gauntlets are an original touch.

Mitchell's Leather Pictures - The Mechanic's Locker Secret

Mitchell - The Mechanic's Locker Secret

When the boys caught sight of the kinky gear hidden in another mechanics locker,
they couldn't resist hazing him and making him demonstrate it for them.
Of course, one thing led to another.......

The Path of Pain series continues at 'mitchmen' with lots of leather-inspired pictures. The Leather 'Knights' have embarked on a campaign to collect semen from manly men. You can join for free by clicking the link at the right.

I just like this man, the cap suits

The egalitarian nature of leather means that elegance is not a mandatory requirement.
Wearing jock on top of shorts must be considered overdressing but the bulging result is undeniably attractive. Big men will always attract attention.

The appeal of this unusual lace up jock lies not in its visual appearance on the body but in it's obvious functionality which the model demonstrates for us. His plushly upholstered body is beautifully adorned by the chain dangling from his nipples - serve him right we all say. I also like the pose astride the fence. But it's an odd photo really.

Leather Sex Appeal - 21

The apparently dismayed pose and OTT ironmongery invites humourous captions
(e.g Oh no! I've forgotten my ......)
However the lines of the jock are very sexy and there's a nice sense of bondage in the sparse strapping

Leather Sex Appeal - 20

Sexy but not terribly suave. This is the leatherman's dilemma. The clothing says hard the pose says not - even with a bike. The model (I think it's the formidable Robert Black) has terrific assets on display, so who wouldn't want him? His take on 'less is more' is perhaps a little too calculating.

Not subtle but quite fascinating, I suppose this says quite a lot about what the appeal of leather is to both wearer and watcher.

Leather Sex Appeal - 18

You don't need to show the flesh to have sex appeal, the open neck is quite sufficient.
Head to toe leather and a motorbike too but it's the casual pose and the straight, fighter's nose that does it for me.

I was bound to come back to shorts eventually. These have a nice cut on the leg and the visible zip is a nice practical feature. This model isn't your average leatherman with floppy hair and all. It's reminiscent of Etienne's famous encounter between the Surfer and the Road Kings. The Surfer dons leather gear to enter into the initiation.

Leather Sex Appeal - 16

Smoking has lost it's associations with cool masculinity in recent years, but I know there are many enthusiasts out there still - and this guy helps to explain why. He also has the face to carry off the cap successfully. I haven't featured the diagonal belt across the body before but it's a sexy item both for the military/police associations and the way it nestles between the pecs.

There's a massive amount of leather accessorising going on here, but it seems to work.

Although he has a very muscular body, it has soft, slightly chubby contours and this combined with the unruly furriness of his chest gives him a natural looking, regular guy appearance which is very attractive.

This is a man wearing leather, rather than a leather man but I like his Mediterranean look and the studded pouch and wristband. The sides of the jock are a bit suspect and the chain definitely constitutes overdressing, I'm not convinced it's even metal! Despite this this hunk definitely fits the theme of leather sex appeal

Quite an interesting take on the harness, this version shows the body to good effect but doesn't have the bondage vibe of the conventional crossover style - it's more like a backpacker's straps. The gloveless gloves are, well, a bit Sagat shall we say? Otherwise, a hunky man who poses like a man should - the podium adds a nice sense of control, his being 'directed' what to do. I'm not a fan of mini-beards but the hair charting the lower boundaries of this man's pecs is something else entirely, a reminder of one of my very first crushes as a schoolboy.

Francois Sagat demonstrates how to wear leather harness and jock,
 i.e. tight enough so the straps disappear between mounds of flesh in interesting places.
Judging by his sometimes bizarre modelling assignments,
Francois must be an 'interesting' person as well as being sexy (see Francois Sagat blog ).
Personally I'm happy looking at the mounds.

Leather men are not supposed to be playful but this is very 'straight acting' bravado so we'll let him off. Nice to see arm straps that fit tightly. Once again less is more.

The Motor Cycle must be the ultimate leather accessory and Logan Reed is one of my favourite models so what else does one need? Boots and armstrap is fine, less is more. The positioning of the headlight is a bit of a cliche but the brake cables, apparently diving between Logan's legs are a nice bonus!

An authentic looking pair of waders which show off the thighs in the same way well cut shorts do. This guy proves that age is no impediment to sex appeal, could you imagine such interesting forearms on a younger man?
