Milking Factories No 6 - featuring Jotto

Jotto - Future Shock, Milking Line
Jotto's 'Milking Line' is a rather individualistic take on the Milking Factory concept

Like Cupcakes666 in Milking Factory No 3 , Jotto depicts a very orderly production line, but this is complex, high tech, almost clinical to the extent that the 'farmer' can attend to his beasts wearing a sharp suit. 

Jotto's herd all seem to be seated, but the exact support arrangements are not visible so we cannot assess how much comfort they are allowed. The collaring of the man at the far end suggests this a highly disciplined operation with herd members expected to focus on production. 

Their milk organs seem to be very firmly clamped at the groin and they are not provided with comforting suction sleeves. Stimulation seems to depend mainly on the raw friction provided by a chunky, moving collar, although there is a hint of something else going on between their legs and underneath.

The men's balls also appear to be subject to a pumping, 'squeeze' action delivered by a moving piston which creates an unusual, production process that is both 'push' and 'pull'. This might justifiably be described as 'Forced Milking' as opposed to the traditional, 'organic' style of Inducing Production via natural stimulation and coaxing.
(I love Jotto's depiction of the cup-like plunger fitting under the balls like an egg cup!) 

I'm not sure whether there's any scientific basis for this approach but the ethics are questionable, the herd members clearly find it most uncomfortable, but times change and if modern techniques are more productive it's inevitable they will become more widespread. Nevertheless there will always be a place for traditional, small scale set-ups like Farmer McDonald's Red Barn featured here last month

Jotto Milking Factory (after Kalabro)
By chance, while I was researching this article I came across this version of Kalabro's Milking Factory which had been colourised by Jotto, it's included in the original article but I omitted to credit Jotto's contribution. These boys live a life of luxury in comparison with the poor chaps above!

Mitchell's Fetish Art for February - Rogue Intruder

captured burglar, over-powered, ripped, torn underwear
Mitchell - Intruder and Gay Pride

This picture features a gay couple who have been living together for years.
Like many modern men they are active and fit, which lends spice to their lovemaking.
It also gives them the confidence to stand up for themselves and their lifestyle.
They are out and proud and not afraid to defend their hard won 'freedom'.

So woe betide any ruffian who chooses to invade and despoil their cosy nest
especially one who, when caught, reviles them as weak and effeminate.

Rob had a theory that homophobes are really men with gay feelings they can't handle.
So when he caught one brazenly vandalising his home in the middle of the night,
it seemed like a golden opportunity to prove his thesis, to suck it and see as it were.

Jeff was happy to help, since he liked having a spunky lad struggling in his grip.
Also he had a grandstand view of the experiments Rob was making.

The villain soon changed his attitude when he found these men were stronger,
although, let's face it, having your jeans taken off is always a great equaliser.

He knew there was a certain rough justice in having his underpants trashed 
considering what he'd just done to their home.

In the end there was no need to get the Police involved.
The last I heard, enquiries were still continuing
.......and the suspect was cooperating.

Game On!

I know next to nothing of the world of gaming 
but this chap's outfit caught my eye. 
A bit over-dressed perhaps with the feather boa.
This spoof on the jargon is both funny and erotic

Leo's story of 'The Estate' comes to mitchmen blog

I have transferred my exhibition featuring Leo's story of 'The Estate' 
from my Yahoo group to this blog as of today.

This fully-illustrated story of a fetish fan who enters into S&M slavery voluntarily is a unique and inspiring work that explores that fantasy of enslavement folowing the highways and byways of bondage and domination in some depth, but with a humanity and lightness of touch and humour that makes it a very good read.

Zamok - Seven New Sketches

  Zamok is one of my favourite artists and he featured in one of the final entries of my A-Z of Fetish Artists back in 2017 (A-Z of Fetish Artists - Zamok). I am proud to have been given these previously unpublished sketches by him and allowed to publish them for the very first time here at mitchmen blog.
These are large images so you can see more if you click on them.

mitchmen blog - seven sketches by Zamok
 Zamok - Sportsman in swimming trunks and football socks (1997)
This study of a sportsman's lower body is earlier than Zamok's other known works
(which are dated between 2001-2013), but his characteristic style is instantly recognisable.
Even though this picture is not of a full figure it has a satisfying 'completeness'.

I would guess this is a soccer player (which seems his favourite subject). The swimming trunk briefs look an incongruous combination at first sight, giving the character a strange dual identity, but they are a typical footballer's undergarment in the modern era* and this player has simply taken his shorts off - to change, or maybe to wave them aloft in some act of bravado on the field.
That possibility alone gives the image an erotic frisson. 

The pose of the figure suggests the sort of off-balance, mid-action posture you might fleetingly see on a soccer pitch when the game is in progress, so you might also imagine some benign force has caused this player's shorts to magically disappear during play, exposing his sexy undies - and I probably don't need to point out just how revealing they are! There's a group of early Zamok pictures which do in fact show footballers stripped and tied up on the pitch.

It gives Zamok the opportunity to depict a sexy pair of legs with the well-developed thighs that are the trademark of a modern, professional footballer. Hair usually looks good on a muscular body and the depiction of it here is something of a tour-de-force creating a subtle sense of 'leg fuzz' that fanciers will delight in. This sort of detail can also be seen in Zamok's other pictures, see below. 

mitchmen blog - seven sketches by Zamok

This fragment is taken from Zamok's 'Soccer' (2002) The fine detailing is only visible on a computer screen if you click on the picture to zoom in. It's easily missed because the highly erotic nature of the picture's subject matter is a massive distraction. Some of Tom of Finland's early pictures aspire to this effect but it's nowhere near as subtle.

 *JOCKSTRAPS: The jockstraps of old are now used only by traditionalists and those who play in rougher sports. Modern soccer players are noted for their dedication to their appearance and fashion, so maybe that's why they prefer more stylish, less functional designs. Or, perhaps they're afraid of being vulnerable to candid photography on the pitch or shy of exposing their naked bottoms to team mates for fear of being targeted by gay innuendo. It's a remarkable fact that there isn't a single 'out' gay player amongst all the thousands of men who play in the top tiers of the English game, suggesting there's an institutional intolerance amongst their peers.

mitchmen - seven sketches by Zamok
Zamok - Study of a Footballer on a Milking Machine (1995)
This study is even earlier and shows that Zamok's 'Alternative Gym' ideas had been occupying him for some time before he shared the results with us. 

Interestingly I can't find any other example in his published works of a 'machine' in which the occupant is seated, they tend to be standing upright or lying on their backs. They are also shown in profile usually, but you can see that the V-shaped leg restraint arms shown here (which can only be appreciated in a '3 dimensional' view) offer up tremendous erotic possibilities with the forcible opening of legs. If only he had explored this further! The thigh straps are a notably emphatic element of the design and the artist seems to have been pondering a 'back support' which would have enabled controlled, backwards arching of the torso.

This image also seems to be unique in that it includes a milking method using a cap or sleeve. If you look at my 'Milking Factory' series, those are by far the commonest fantasy for this procedure but Zamok's previously published works use either sounding tubes or, occasionally, the hand of a 'Trainer' to promote extraction.

I commented in my A-Z article that coloured images by Zamok are unusual but there are three in this group. The footballer's socks show that he's used cross-hatching with coloured pencils (or possibly crayons) to give them texture, but the skin tones are finer and more subtle. The example just above exploits the grain of the paper to suggest hairiness.

mitchmen blog - seven sketches by Zamok
Zamok - Twin Bondage
Two gym users are strapped together back-to-back for this typical Zamok image, which is an echo of his well known goalmouth, Soccer Double Punishment (also referenced above). If you expand the image by clicking, you can see that wrist and arm restraints were in the pipeline for these two men and their hand shapes suggest they were to be gripping the pull cables of exercising weights which is a common Zamok scenario. There's no hint of the artist's intentions regarding their sexual equipment.
Notice the clothing detail includes 'Z' brand socks.

Zamok - Body (athlete restrained)
This is a marvellous sketch of a torso under stress. The subtle shading defines the subject's musculature without impairing the sense of cohesive bulk in the body. I'm not a big fan of prominent veins in body-builders, but the way in which they are shown to traverse the terrain of the leg here is quite remarkable.

Veins are not entirely devoid of eroticism either, but that ingredient is amply supplied anyway by the simple jock-style garment with it's slimmed down waistband. The hairy treasure trail disappearing inside it is a reliable, erotic device but the athlete's tackle dangling out through one leg hole will be a rare treat for some of my readers. Amongst all this sensuality the single, tight, leg binding of rope is easily missed but is sufficient to trigger imaginings of this hugely desirable, spreadeagled, athletic body being comprehensively immobilised.

mitchmen blog - seven sketches by Zamok
Zamok - Drawing
This sketch is simply titled 'Drawing' but shows a nude man, apparently restrained, with legs spread wide open and arms drawn back tightly behind his back. The head turned to the side suggests another person is present but unseen, in charge of the captive.

The figure detailing here is familiar but the characterisation of the face is quite unlike Zamok's usual middle-European look (for example, that shown in the 'Twin Bondage' image above). The generous head of blond hair confers more of an Anglo-Saxon or Scandinavian look.
It's an interesting experiment, but an isolated one it seems.

mitchmen blog - seven sketches by Zamok
Zamok - Drawing 034 (man suspended from a trapeze)
There's similar experimentation in this image with a curly-haired man this time. 
He's tied to and suspended from a trapeze, clad only in swimming trunks.

There's a hook around his tackle which has come from between his legs
It seems to be causing some sort of discharge and his clawed hands suggest extreme tension.
A figure is visible behind him operating a lever or possibly manipulating the hook.

This is essentially a vehicle for another fine, figure study,
 but the S&M element, hinted at in the preceding studies, is more explicit here 
and it's quite unlike the subtle torments of the gym machines in his best known work.
More pointed, you might say.

mitchmen blog - seven sketches by Zamok
Zamok - Batman (study)
This is the most surprising of all these studies, who'd have thought that Zamok's earthy footballers would have a companion character drawn from the realms of Fantasy? (I must admit I too have drawn a single picture based on Batman and like Zamok here given him the power of flight!)

Batman looks unexpectedly slender when he's given Zamok's lean physique, perhaps that's a more appropriate reflection of his physical agility and his intimidating eyes here make up for his less intimidating bulk. Zamok gives him a generous, but neutral, bulge.


These fascinating sketches, most of them of just as attractive as his previous known works tease us with what might have been. They give us insights into Zamok's technique but also into his thoughts about his subject matter. They make a marvellous footnote for his great male art.

The Art of BrosFate - 3

 In this post I make a quick tour of BrosFate's other projects. The illustration above is from a recent series called 'Slave Sword' and it shows a would-be 'Slave-Gladiator' being punished for disobedience. As you have seen, this artist has an interest in men being subjected to unwelcome groping and gripping down below and he has a talent for portraying it too. Surprisingly it doesn't seem to be a common subject amongst other artists, but I can't think of anyone that's done the invading hand more convincingly than this.

'Slave Sword' is somewhat similar to 'Rookie Mercenary', in that two recruits become friends as they struggle to progress in a fighting role. In this case they fall in love and this leads to them disobeying their master.
Both are punished, Ivan above and Aston in the first picture. 

BrosFate has a welcome, uncomplicated approach to creating his imagery.
His frames tend to focus on one subject and are all the more powerful for that simplicity. The elongated leg effect here is very effective, the prominent muscles reminiscent of Kalabro. I like the loin cloth style of groin covering he's used.

This scene, suggesting a slow death by drowning, is reminiscent of film serials of the 50's which invariably ended each episode with the heroes in a hopeless position, apparently doomed. Water tanks filling with water with a floundering victim inside are not uncommon in modern mainstream movies but erotic images are usually less ambitious in concept and this seems quite original, although I recall there is a similar scene with swimmers in Bowen's Watery Trap.

This scenario also reminds me of the memorable water tank scenes by Bound Gods featuring Dante and Rusty Stevens (mmm!) which have something of the same feel about them. (Not to mention my own Preserve Factory and Feeding Time, of course). In all these other cases however the tank occupants were alone, tightly bound and totally immersed, rather than suffering slow, gradual submergence alongside their buddy.

This is another striking image with a historical setting.
It shows a captive forced to work in 'Young Barbarian'

The idea of taming a strong man by giving him a Herculean physical task is as old as time
This appears to be a particularly futile one, to be repeated over and over again.
This giant millstone is a suitably intimidating prop, worthy of Cecil B Demille.
Of course once he's mastered it he may become more of a problem than ever.

We've already seen examples of kick boxing in other BrosFate stories. This example features a surprisingly well-dressed gang member (centre) and is significant in the narrative because it marks the moment of Epiphany for Edgar, the ginger haired hero of 'Blue Justice' (left).

This picture captures well the wild and vindictive kick that fells him.

Edgar's attempt to stop the gang molesting a woman backfires.
He is overwhelmed by their numbers, beaten and disrobed by them.
There are some sexy undressing shots in this sequence.

The gang mock him and run off with his clothes.
With nothing to wear, Edgar is obliged to find his way home totally naked.
This is a classic dream and nightmare scenario, of course
but it's power as a humiliation depends on your personality and local culture.

Bruised and humiliated, Edgar resolves to become fitter and stronger.
With the help of his friend Thomas, he morphs into a very boyish-looking 'Blue Justice'.
There's a tantalising electronic fitting of his 'hero suit' during this process.

For me though, the story of his opponent-to-be is more interesting.
It starts with the mysterious disappearance of a fight champion,
 who just happens to be a bit of a hunk if you disregard his excessive fierceness.

(Interestingly, this black and white image seems more real than the coloured ones)

The fighter has actually been kidnapped by the villain of the piece,
 who, in an unusual twist, turns out to be younger than his captive and far less strong.
He plans to morph the fighter into robot slave soldier to do his bidding.
The transformation process is compellingly imagined in this scene
complete with thought-control helmet and billowing steam.

Of course the human robot fails in his mission, thanks to 'Blue Justice'.
He returns, humiliated, to his master's secret laboratory to face punishment.
This image of the muscular hunk bowing down in shame is excellent.
One wonders if he's still aware of his former existence as a proud Champion.

This frustrated-looking captive with a nice loin cloth and fabulous body is a great image
But he's not the prisoner of some ancient lord but something quite different.
He's a resident in a 'Virtual Dungeon' which involves computer games and blurred realities.
A young man crosses the boundary into a fantasy of possessing this hunky captive.

In 'Debt' a young man sells himself into servitude to pay for his brother's medical bills
That's a theme which Tagame also exploited in his 'South Island' POW story.

In erotica, sitting on your slave is usually a casual put-down or pony-riding exercise.
It gets more real, with an extra twist of public humiliation, in this office setting.
BrosFate tweaks an old idea into something different and very sexy.

 This splendid rugby player is Dave, a character in 'Housemate', one of this artist's earliest stories.
Dave takes in a housemate, Will, who is instantly attracted to him but dares not say so.
BrosFate shows them making domestic arrangements and  becoming friends
So far so ordinary, but there's a very unexpected and interesting twist in the story.....

Will has a secret desire to be a Master and starts searching for a Sub on the internet.
He makes contact anonymously with 'Wolf 'and they arrange to meet.
To Will's astonishment, Wolf turns out to be Will and he's looking for a Master.

 It's a tricky situation with them being Housemates, but they work out an on-off arrangement
Weedy Will's domination of hunky, muscle jock Dave is deliciously incongruous 
and it's already taking effect in this frame as he dictates the rules of their relationship.

His reward is unrestricted access to Dave's fabulous physique
which he can dress and undress and do with as he pleases.

He makes the most of his opportunity and begins to explore Dave's boundaries,
making him pose and exercise and display his body provocatively as a sex object.

They even flirt with public exposure of their relationship. It's that nudity thing again
with the added spice of Rugby Star Jock Dave being found out to be a practising Sub by his friends.
This exploration of the thrill of being dominated is charmingly innocent. 

Finally 'Strange Blacksmith', the most fantastical of all BrosFate's stories.
A Knight visits a Blacksmith to commission a new set of armour
The (very young) Smith measures him up and it seems like a variation of 'Housemates'
 where a yearning young man unexpectedly gains intimate access to a hunk.

The Knight sits and watches the Smith hammering out his armour plate
But the sound of the hammer seems to mesmerise him and he is gradually overcome 
In a series of 'wobbly' transition pictures he imagines himself transported
 to a different, dungeon-like place, where he materialises astride a 'wedge' torture horse

To his dismay and anger he finds he is a captive, naked of course,
restrained by chains as though being prepared for torture,
 and suddenly his dream becomes very real.

He is approached by a horned being of the underworld
He looks very much like the Smith and claims the Knight as his toy.
Then he starts to torment him.

The wedge horse and dungeon in this scene have a genuine flavor of antiquity,
but these tit-clamps are more akin to common or garden leather fetish.
Fortunately BrosFate's imagination is not exhausted.....

Toy seems to be the right word to describe the captive Knight's fate.
The elf (if that's his correct classification) spread-eagles the helpless Knight.
 and produces a strange, snake-like being from nowhere with a magical flourish.
(and that's not the only impressive sight in this image! Nice buns!)

The snake burrows into the Knight's ass.
It's a terrifying demonstration of demonic power.
The dramatic, red pattern of the snake's skin
seems to warn of aggression and danger.

There's an alien takeover scene something like this in one of the Startrek movies but they did not use this particular orifice for some reason!

That particular torment eventually ends, 
but the dream goes on and the Knight finds there's no escape.

Once again as I look at this artist's work I am left wondering,
how can such a simple image like this work so well?

Notice that the elevated status of the Knight, like the fight Champion,
 makes his captivity and loss of freedom all the more humbling


BrosFate's imagination seems to brim with original ideas and he has an uncanny ability
 to produce simple but powerful illustrations to convey them to his audience.
There's a certain youthful naivety in his exploration of fetish relationships
and a yearning for strong men which is an innocent desire we can all remember.
His restrained approach to sexual matters often results in tantalising erotica
 in which our imaginations are invited to supply the lurid detail.
I'm  looking forward to seeing more of his work.

The Art of BrosFate - 2

This image is from the BrosFate story 'Rookie Mercenaries'.
It describes the attempts of two young men to join an outfit of mercenary soldiers.
You will gather from this picture that the organisation has demanding admission tests
which are conducted with the trialist completely nude.

(The image has been subjected to a 'vanilla cropping' that looks a bit awkward,
 but actually it whets the appetite!)

This character, 'Jade', (who says he has a heterosexual relationship outside the unit),
learns the hard way that boot worship is not merely a symbolic exercise
but a gritty test of willingness to totally submit to the demands of his superiors.

It's a short step from boots to feet, but a significant one, moving the test into sexual territory.
The cropping looks a bit over-enthusiastic here, but I like the prominence given to the foot.
The glimpse of the bystander on the right is a nice, mildly erotic element.

Earlier on, Jade and other applicants underwent a more normal induction test.
I've included this picture mainly because I like the young man dressed in blue, 
or rather his short hair and sensual neck-line, it's one of my weaknesses!
Sadly, he doesn't fare any better in the barrel-lifting test than the contestant we see here.

This is an earlier series than 'Captured Soldier' and you can see that BrosFate's technique is still developing. The aerial, angled view sets formidable perspective challenges which you can see most clearly in the relative sizes of the contestants in the foreground and the bearded judge at the far end of the table. Fortunately our brains seem to disregard these odd effects and focus on the content.

Jade and Andy (with the ginger hair) are the only successful applicants.
Their friendship germinates as they undergo simultaneous medicals in the nude.
BrosFate is unexpectedly discreet here, but he does show Jade's embarrassment
(and interest?) when it's discovered that Andy has developed an erection.

You will have realised by now that humiliation and embarrassment is a major theme of this story.
The medic proceeds to take a swab from each man's backside, putting them in a jar on the table.
Quite what this purpose this might have served in a pre-technology era, I dread to think!

Free to take a break, Andy explores the gardens.
He espies 'Hans' washing himself at the well, which sight flushes out his gay orientation.
The choice of a low viewpoint here creates a nice sense of Andy's submissiveness.
It elevates Hans to heroic dimensions (but the perspectives beyond them are dizzying!)
Sadly, BrosFate passes up the chance to show more of Andy's butt credentials.

Andy is inexperienced and Hans has to give him soldierly encouragement
 and practical instruction in the art of sucking - and then bottoming.
This is a nice use of close-up technique conveying the earthy sensuality of their moment
and allowing us the role of furtive voyeurs.

Meanwhile Jade is summoned by the Chief and interrogated about his sex life.
I'm not usually a fan of historical themes and clothing, but this image certainly makes a good case for young men dressing in shifts. It's amazingly erotic considering you can't actually see anything.

The wide screen format creates a dilemma here, it would be nice to lose those spaces at the side but the height can't reduced without losing vital detail.

By the time you get to this point, it's clear that that the artist is imposing a certain amount of modesty on these compositions. He does show sexual acts in progress, but not the organs. Whether that caution springs from him, his cultural background, publishing legalities, software limits or something else, I cannot say.

It's not always a turn-off as the preceding picture graphically demonstrates and his story-telling is good and well paced enough to off-set the absence of purer filth.This particular example is a little frustrating though! That's partly because the screening-off seems so contrived and unnecessary. The underlying image seems relatively innocuous and is so well conceived (and led up to in the narrative) that it seems a shame not to show us what everyone in the picture is focused on.

The artist seems to have fewer reservations about depicting brutality, even sexual stuff.
 How strange are values in this world!
This is another nice image and for once I think the aerial perspective is entirely appropriate.
Jade's attacker is a well-conceived figure and there's nice continuity
with the glimpse we had of him in the opening sequence of this article.

Hans arrives bringing Andy with him and his clothes are rapidly discarded.
I'm being mischievous in including this image. BrosFate has resolved the issue of unrealistic clothing by the time of 'Captured Soldier' but his caption here is rather ironic.
You can see why he wanted to retain this dramatic moment but it's not his best image.

We can finish on a more positive note as Jade and Andy bend over the table to formally demonstrate their complete submission to their superiors and receive what you might call their blessing.
The vultures seem to be hovering over them in this inspired imagining.
It leads into an extended finale in which the Rookies truly earn their spurs.
