This guys not so sure about his friend's cameraderie!
An erotic moment created for the Dieux de Stade calendar.
The shiny and ever-so-slightly chubby bodies are very nice.
Golden balls from another calendar. A more artsy shot which suggests a loneliness which hardly seems appropriate. The shorts and socks lend realism to the untypical muscularity of his body and as for those thighs......well!

If you like your rugbymen cute Berrick Barnes of Australia might be of interest.
Deceptively boyish as an estate agent might say.
Berrick showing attitude and chunky thighs is better.
The sight of a man being 'carried off' always conjures abduction fantasies in my head.

This nice lump in his pants is as close as you are likely to get to Ben's most interesting tackle. Nude pictures circulating on the net are fakes.

He's not pretty but I've always admired Lawrence Dallagio's masculinity and power. The descriptions bull neck and arms like hams have never been so apt. But there is another side.

The tight fitting Welsh shirt shows a fine body to suit a craggy face.
It seems extraordinary that soccer - the popular game - has never tried to promote itself this way. Not that I'm complaining. Love that neck!

My illustrated story The Legend of The Path of Pain (avail at my Yahoo! Group) includes a section detailing the capture and milking of a whole rugby team (and the reserves!).
I have an erotic attraction to Rugby Players that goes right back to school experiences but it has been re-invigorated by recent changes in the game that have produced fitter, muscular players and sexy clinging outfits.
I took the opportunity to play with those themes in a series of rugby pictures for my story. This particular one (Rugby Memories) grew out of a sketch which I have had hanging around unfinished for 20 years or more, showing just the foreground figure wearing a jockstrap. He dresses up quite well I think, at any rate I had fun doing it! The resulting picture is not realistic and you can see the joins, as it were, but I hope it conveys some sense of the pleasure I get from watching these hunky beasts!
The full set is posted at my mitchmen Group (link in sidebar).

I have always found the sensuality and subject matter of Link's art very attractive but he is being jostled by some seriously talented artists here. I love the domination scenarios concocted by Losarro and Lowenhaupt but as regular readers will know, the old man + young man scenario doesn't work for me erotically and when combined with feminised facial features it's a no no.
I highlighted femininity in Leo's work as well, but it's quite different in nature, his men are made to behave in a feminine way so there's a humiliation angle that I can appreciate providing that the men do not lose their maleness in the process. In fact there is a gentleness about Leo's men which is not unmasculine (and is probably true to life) but doesn't seem quite appropriate in erotic domination fantasy. Leo's wide-ranging exploration of bondage is very perceptive and tremendously important but his representation of manhood doesn't work for me.
Logan is a different kettle of fish. He's a very talented graphic artist and his pictures have a tremendous power that springs from their artistry more than the subject matter. The maturity of his men is refreshing. But they have an angularity and hardness that for me drains away the erotic appeal.
This leaves me with Link and Les. Eye candy vs scary fantasy. I have to admit that my favourite picture in all the “L's” is Les's dungeon staircase, it invokes a sense of sexual anxiety and helplessness that presses all my buttons and this flavour runs through his work. The bizarre facial features and outfits add an extra twist which is surprisingly effective and has even survived the passage of time.
Les - Military Interrogation
'Military Interrogation' is another picture that makes good use of clothing and nudity to underline danger and vulnerability. The neat balanced composition draws you in to focus on the prisoner until you realise what the guard has clenched in his hand.
The vague, muddy reproductions unfortunately deprive Les's pictures of sensuality which is where Link really scores with his voluptuously muscled and handsome heroes that the eyes linger over.
Link's 'Train to Crotchdorf' is a good example with a selection of attractive men to study. The cute prisoners are being ferried to the prison, apparently by public transport, while the guards charged with keeping them 'on the boil' relax with their buddies. I love the situation that Link has created here, the condemned men hanging naked in full view of all the other passengers is the stuff of many commuters' fantasies!.
It's very hard to choose between these two but in this case I'm inclined to follow my head rather than my heart so I'm choosing Les as my winner for L.
There's a good selection of Les's work in the recent postings at Roids and Rants - but you'll have to hunt back through the archives for it!
