There we go




Yves Paradis





Yves Paradis was born in Brittany (France) in 1955, to farming family. He discovered his passion for photography as a teenager at school, were he started taking pictures of his friends. At the end of the seventies, he began to compose pictures of the guys that he encountered. His work has been published in France (Gai Pied), Italy (Babilonia), and Germany.
In 1991 an English Editor, Aubrey Walter, published a collection of his photographs entitled " Joie de vivre", now out of print.
Although close to the gay community, his work is always free from clichés and fashion. This is why his pictures remain so universal and timeless.
At the beginning of the nineties, he stopped taking pictures and started to individually print his compositions on traditional photographic paper. This is why every one of his photographs is original and unique.

My name is Sam, and these are my true stories --- Straight high-school cock


By J.S. Miller

One thing you should know is that I don’t always get every straight guy I go after.  Some straight guys will turn me down cold, which usually makes me hunt them harder.  This works with some guys, and doesn’t with others.  I’d say my success rate with straight guys is 65-70%.  That’s good enough odds to keep me hunting.  Also, with most straight guys it’s a one-time deal.  However, sometimes they come back.

Sometimes they come back

It had been a few months since Cole and his friends had face-fucked me in front of my house and emptied their loads into my gut.  Since then, I had blown Danny from 700 East a couple of times, Vince a few more times, and Danny and Vince, Cole’s brother, one more time in a threesome.  The fall semester of college was about to start, and I was looking forward to a new crop of straight guys on campus.

New in the gallery --- Allen Todd Yaeger



Allen Todd Yaeger


 (From the artist's website:)

I currently live in New York City. I am a professional working artist who has been selling portraits since the age of 12. I was born in the 60s and graduated from high school in the 80s. I sold my work at a gallery in Washington, DC for many years, but more recently my work has sold at the Leslie + Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art here in New York, as well as in private and public shows and on this website.

The artist

The artwork included on this sight ranges from my large scale detailed paintings to sketches, studies, portraits, self portraits, and nudes. Fortunately I grew up close to cities where I could visit some of the worlds greatest art museums. I have many interests with my art but my main focus is pretty much on people. Though some of my work is conceptual I will do a picture just for it's beauty, and nothing is more beautiful to me than the human form. I am a fan of much artwork which would not be considered conventionally beautiful, however I find many different kinds of unusual people to be fascinating  subjects.  I hope you enjoy the artwork.  I've included some descriptions of the inspiration behind different works.

Very short story




The Wrapping Paper Wars --- by Chuck Teixeira


By Chuck Teixeira


Gift wrap for Christmas was more elaborate than the stuff used in September exchanges among secret friends. On every block between Parque Lourdes and Calle 53, a dozen people were selling the stuff. Most of the vendors were old women with worried faces, all the more wrinkled against the smooth finish of the rolls marshaled or rioting just below their chins. School vacation begun, children reinforced the rickety carts guarding their grandmothers.

He made enough money to neglect school

Alvaro had not been much older – or taller -- than these ragged elves when armed rebels blew up a power station near Bogota, and the longest blackout in Colombia’s history rotated through town. Among his early ventures, he hauled crates of candles to intersections to sell to motorists in tangled traffic. That summer, he made money enough to to neglect school and search instead for another hole to plug profitably. By the time we met, he had developed and sold a small mint that stamped out tejo disks marked for different neighborhood and factory leagues – the humbler the patron, the greater the demand. And he was unloading a factory that produced heavy cotton tees with logos for Ciudad Bolivar and other slums that the young professionals rabid for the shirts would never dare enter.

Very short story




Paint it black





People were asking: Harem rock...Paint it black...quartertones? Here, you millennials, here is the answer:




And now the post again:

Michael Ampersant (text) and Theo Blaze (art)


Michael Ampersant had dreamed of using some poetry in THIS IS HEAVEN (his second book)---one character speaking in verse, say---but nothing came of it. But then he discovered that the first part of Chapter 33, "Harem Rock" would actually work as poetry if reformatted as a stanza. Nothing up to Shakespeare standards, but still. Next, the formidable Theo Blaze put up an invite on his site, asking authors to come up with a brief story to illustrate one of his pictures. Michael reacted, and they got a deal; Michael would write a story, if Theo would create an illustration for "Harem Rock." And there we are:
  

John,
Why couldn’t you,
At the end of a page-turning,
Adverb-packed day,
Of unparalleled heat levels.

And now the typical complication of a hinterland orgy...

Why couldn’t you,
Just down the third ‘fortification’ the lady of the house was handing you,
And chuck your dirty shorts one more time,
And let the sex slave fix the Magic-Mike collar around your neck.

In view of the advanced hour,
We’ll keep the strip-tease to a minimum.
