Beautiful guys in black-and-white; easy Wednesday in store for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

If you follow this site then you know I am a huge fan of black-and-white photography, and about once a week I like to share a pair of my favorites with you guys, so you can enjoy them as much as I do.

I find the photo to the left here especially appealing. The model, of course, is beautiful, but that’s not the only reason I like the photo. Notice how much space appearsย aboveย the model? That space actually makes us focus even more intently on the young man. Notice the odd expression on his face, as though he’s deep in thought about something important And I like the way his left arm is bent behind his waist, an interesting pose for sure.

I was up early this morning because I had a dental appointment to put a temporary crown in my mouth to replace the one that fell off Monday night. At least I no longer look like a creature in theย  Haunted Mansion at Disney World. ๐Ÿ™‚

Okay, here’s another black-and-white photo I find pretty amazing. Again, the model is beautiful, but I love the expression on his face and the way the lighting plays on him. We can’t tell whether he’s naked, but we’d all like to know, wouldn’t we? ๐Ÿ˜‰

Now I’m home. It’s close to lunchtime and I have an easy day ahead of me. After lunch I will drive into the city to visit the YMCA for a workout and lap-swimming. Then I will head home for a relaxing evening, here on the island. Okay, that doesn’t sound too exciting, but after all my summer travels I am content to spend time here, just enjoying the beauty of my property and my little island.

Have a great Wednesday, everyone.

Shirtless guys wearing backpacks; easy Tuesday in store for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

I think certain guys look really amazing when they are shirtless but wearing a backpack on their shoulders. I’m not sure why that look is so appealing, but who could resist either guy in this morning’s photo posts. Just look at those pretty brownย  eyes on Mr. Slender to the left here. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Last night, I was innocently eating my dinner and watching Monday Night Football, when the cap on one of my front teeth came loose and disappeared. I presume I swallowed it. ๐Ÿ™ Anyway, now I have a huge gap in my smile that looks terrible. I called my dentist and they are getting me in first thing tomorrow morning. In the meantime I’ll look like I belong on a pirate ship.:-(

I find the guy in the photo to the left pretty amazing. I love his lean body and I like the way the sunlight is reflecting off his long wavy hair. I could follow him around all day. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I woke pretty early this morning because the exterminator was due here at eight AM. After he left, I got busy with booking a trip to Toronto next month, when I will visit a friend up there for a few days. The weather’s usually nice up there in early October, so I’m looking forward to the trip.

Today will be an easy day for me. I have some editing to do and correspondence to tend to. I need to make a run to the wine market to stock my shelf, and around four I plan to take a two-mile run, here on the island. Of course it’s dreadfully hot and humid outside, so the run will be brutal, but if I want to stay fit I need to deal with the heat. That’s life in Florida.

All right, everyone, I need to get busy, so I will close this post by wishing all of you a very fine Tuesday, wherever you might be today. And keep smiling, it’s important. ๐Ÿ™‚

Youch! A hot pair of spanking videos for those of you who like to watch ….

Hi, friends and readers:

It’s no secret that spanking videos are popular in the gay porno subculture, as well as in the straight porno world. Like BDSM, spanking videos and photos appeal to both those who like administering a spanking (I’ve don that myself several times and found it somewhat stimulating.) and those who like to be spanked.

Anyway, if this your sort of thing, you might want to have a look at these two videos:

and ….

Those poor lads better learn to please their daddies a little better, or they won’t be sitting down too comfortably much of the time. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Hot guys at the beach (but not Martin’s beach) ….

Hi, friends and readers:

If you follow this site, then you know I live in one of Florida’s prettiest beach communities, on the Gulf Coast. Normally, our water is crystal clear and the sand at the shore looks as white as table sugar. And there’s nothing more delightful than taking a stroll along the shore to check out all the college boys running around in their swim trunks.

Sadly, right nowย no oneย is using our beach because the Red Tide has invaded our part of the Gulf of Mexico. This is a type of organism that kills fish and other sea life like turtles and manatees. All the dead things wash up on our shore, stinking like crazy, and it’s nasty as hell. So, no boys on the beach right now. ๐Ÿ™

Oh, and our beach is not clothing optional, but I could go for that if Mr. Smiley to the left here would show up. What a nice smile. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I spent a pleasant evening last night with a good friend, sharing a few beers and some tasty Greek takeout for our dinner. I came home feeling a little tired after all the household project I tackled this weekend, so it wasn’t long before I hit the bed and drifted into dreamland.

I was up around 8:30 this morning, and at nine I was at the keyboard to write fresh material for my novel-in-progress. I wrote for two hours, and then I spent a few minutes making phone calls to schedule appointments with various people. I have a whole list of projects I want to tackle in the coming months, and it’s time I got them underway.

This will be a typical Monday for me. Right after lunch I will climb into my Element and drive into the city to visit the YMCA for a workout and lap-swimming. I’ll visit a wine shop and supermarket on the way home, and then I will spend a quiet evening at home.

Have a great Monday, friends.

The world of BDSM. Why does it fascinate us so?

Hi, friends and readers:

Back in 2012, I published BDSM-themed, short novel titled “Passion Play”.ย I had never written much fiction about the BDSM scene, but decided to give it a try. Here’s the blurb for my book:

“Reverend Luke helps put on the Passion Play at his church every year. Nearly eighty parishioners get involved, and this year brothers James and Marcus Thibodeaux will be participate. James will play Jesus, but thereโ€™s a hitch; heโ€™s deaf, so Marcus will act as translator.

“James is beautiful and young–almost angelic in appearance–and just the person to portray Jesus. Or is he?

“When Reverend Luke begins a sexual relationship with Marcus, he learns things about James that are hardly angelic. Can Reverend Luke convince James to be penitent and worthy of portraying Jesus?”

“Passion Play” was a huge success. It sold many copies and continues to sell occasionally, even six years after initial publication, a rarity in genre fiction.ย  But why are readers so fascinated by BDSM?

I’m no psychologist, but I think BDSM is less about pain, and more about control or lack thereof. Having utter control over another person’s body is powerful stuff. Likewise, surrendering control over one’s body can also be an incredibly exciting experience, as long as there’s a strong element of trust between the participants.

On to other matters. I spent a quiet night at home last night, after a delightful swim at my timeshare, along with my neighbor. I ended up reading in bed until I fell asleep around one AM. Then I slept until 9:30 this morning.

I don’t have a lot planned for my Sunday. I’ve already read the newspaper, and I plan to do some more housework today, in particular cleaning all the objects resting on the shelves above my desk: family photos, memorabilia, rocks and stones I’ve collected during my worldwide travels, and so forth.ย  I probably haven’t cleaned them in three years and they are looking dusty.

Tonight I will join a friend in the city for drinks and takeout for dinner. Outside, it’s terrible warm and humid, and the Red Tide has invaded our area, so the odor of dead fish hangs in the air. ๐Ÿ™ I hope conditions are nice where you are, friends. Have a nice Sunday.


Department store change room jerk offs. Is this a new fad?


Hi, friends and readers:

I don’t post any porn on this site because it’s intended for all ages. But occasionally I’ll come across something X-rated online, and if it’s interesting I will share the links to the material.

In think certain young men these days are pursuing a new sexual activity: making selfie videos of themselves getting naked and jerking off in a department store change room. I guess there’s a certain thrill to it, since others are nearby who have no idea what’s going on the in change room.

Anyway, I thought the video I’m linking you to was pretty sexy. However ….

WARNING: If male nudity and sexual activity offend you, or if you are under the age of 18, don’t click on the links.

Enjoy, guys …. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Hot guys in the shower; steamy Saturday on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

Have you ever taken a shower with your boyfriend, the kind where you scrub each other from head to toe? It can be a lot of fun, actually. There’s something very sexy about watching water sheet down a young man’s limbs, and it’s fun slipping your soapy fingers into crevices all over his body. The guys in the top photo sure look like they’e enjoying themselves, don’t they?

I was up at eight this morning because I had to make a phone call to a friend in Canada and we needed to speak before he left for work. I walked outside to get the newspaper and…yikes. It’s really hot and muggy outdoors, the kind of weather that makes you want to stay inside in the air conditioning. When will fall ever come?

Um, have a look at our friend to the left here. Do you think he’s about to ditch those briefs he’s wearing? I mean, who showers in his underwear? Anyway, he has an amazing body I’d love to scrub. Yummy …. ๐Ÿ˜‰

My plan for today is relatively simple. After I do some work in the writing department, I delve into a painting project I can perform indoors. I’ll turn some music one the stereo to keep myself amused, and I’ll paint away. Around four PM I will take a two-mile run, here on the island, and then I’ll watch my Florida Gators play Colorado State. I’m afraid the Gators aren’t too good this year, so they may lose this one. ๐Ÿ™

Have a nice Saturday, friends.

Sexy football players; Martin’s weekend plans are dashed ….

Hi, friends and readers:

I’m not a huge football fan. I’ll watch a game now and then, usually when my Florida Gators are playing. (But they’re not very good this year.) ๐Ÿ™ But if all the games were played by guys dressed like the guy to the left, I wouldn’t miss a single game. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I went to bed around midnight last night, after spending a very nice evening with my friend in the city. We talked for about an hour before ordering Mexican takeout that wasย realย tasty. Anyway, I ended up sleeping until ten this morning, which is rather late for me. It’s been about ten days since my transatlantic flight and I think my body clock’s still screwed up.

Here’s another football player I find very appealing, even though he’s wearing a lot more than the guy in the upper photo. He looks a lot like a fraternity brother of mine who I developed a huge crush on when I was in college, such a handsome guy and a great athlete. I wonder where Killian is today?

Well, I was supposed to be spending this weekend scalloping at my fishing camp, but one of my friends who was going to join me had to back out, so I postponed the trip until next weekend. It’s okay, I have some projects to work on around here that will keep me busy and this evening, after dinner, perhaps I’ll ask a friend to join me for a swim at my timeshare down the street.

All right, everyone, I need to get busy here, so I will close this post by wishing all of you a fine Friday. And keep smiling. It’s important. ๐Ÿ™‚


Sexy guys in A-shirts; easy Thursday in store for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

It takes a special guy to wear an A-shirt (a/k/a “wife beater”) successfully. The guy doesn’t have to be muscular, but he needs broad shoulders and a flat belly, like the two in today’s photo posts.

I really like the top photo. Sure, the young man’s cute, but the photographer posed the young man behind a chain link fence, which lends him an air of mystery and anonymity, almost as if he were wearing a veil. Good stuff ….

I stayed up late last night, sitting on my patio and listening to my garden fountain gurgle. A crescent moon was up and things were so pleasant I didn’t want to go inside.

Anyway, as a result of my late night I didn’t get out of bed until close to ten AM. I brewed coffee and made a quick breakfast. Then I took care of a few editing chores and dealt with correspondence.

In about a half-hour I will make an hour’s drive northward for a medical appointment, and then I’ll return to my little island for a relaxing afternoon. I have some housework to do and more editing to work on. Around four p.m. I will take a two-mile run, and after a quick shower I’ll drive into the city to spend the evening with one of my best friends. We’ll drink a few beers and trade some stories, then dine on takeout.

By the way, do you find the young man in the lower photo as appealing as I do. What an amazing body, ๐Ÿ˜‰

All right, everyone, I need to get ready for my drive northward, so I will close this post by wishing all of you a wonderful Thursday, wherever you might be today.


Beautiful guys with blue eyes; easy Wednesday in store for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

When it comes to men, my tastes run to guys with dark hair and eyes, that’s just me. But I can certainly appreciate the beauty of a handsome young man with blue eyes, whether they be cobalt or ice blue. Gazing into a pair of blue eyes is almost hypnotic, and I could certainly spend a long afternoon looking at either guy in today’s photo posts. What a pair of babes …. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I had a doctor’s appointment scheduled for mid-morning today, but the doctor’s office phoned me early this morning to re-schedule, so I ended up sleeping late, until almost ten AM.

I spent this morning doing a final review of edits on my novel that is coming out in a few weeks, and then I sent my changes to the published for approval. I wrote the book during the last half of 2017, and now, nine months later, it will finally debut. I’m stoked. ๐Ÿ™‚

Have a look at the young man to the left here. Isn’t he beautiful? I’ll bet he can do amazing things with those lips of his. Aye-yi-yi ….

Today will be an easy one for me, compared to yesterday’s frantic pace. After a quick lunch I will drive into the city to visit the YMCA for a workout and lap-swimming session. Then I’ll return to my little island to spend a peaceful evening at home. I may visit my timeshare down the street to take a dip in the pool if weather permits.

Have a nice Wednesday, friends.
