A pair of super-handsome guys; busy Tuesday for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

Sometimes I’m out in public, at the beach or the supermarket, and I’ll encounter a young man who steals my breath he’s so handsome. And the guys in tonight’s photo posts are exactly what I am talking about. I mean, check out the boy in the upper photo. Beautiful skin and hair, lovely facial features, and a lean physique. Who wouldn’t want him for a boyfriend? 🙂

As the headline for the posts says, I had a very busy day. This morning I spent 2-1/2 hours writing fresh material for my novel-in-progress. Then, right after lunch, I climbed into my Honda Element to run a series of errands: Walgreen’s to exchange an empty propane tank for a full one, a visit to the wine market, and then to a craft store to buy a picture frame for a new watercolor I bought. I hit two retail outlets to buy new towels for my vacation rental and then new pillows for my bed. I hit the WaWa to buy ethanol-free gas for my boat, and then the supermarket for groceries. (Whew!)

After I got home and put away all my purchases, I took a two-mile run, here on the island. Then, once I’d showered, I drove into the city to have dinner at a Thai place with a good friend. We attended a movie afterward, a very good one, and now I am back on the island, feeling a little weary. But it was a good day, I got a lot done.

Okay, sorry I posted so late today, but as you can tell, I was too busy to post until now. Have a nice Tuesday night, friends.

A day of lover boys; typical Monday in store for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

I love photos of two guys showing physical affection to each other, especially in a public place. When I was a young man, two guys never touched that way in public, but thankfully times have changed, and now I sometimes see gay men holding hands or even kissing on the street or in a bar. It’s refreshing, isn’t it? And I think the two young men in the upper photo I’m posting look about as happy as they can be. 🙂

I spent a quiet night at home yesterday. I watched a little football and I shared a bottle wine with my neighbor and friend. I ate leftovers for dinner, then I read for a while in my bed before falling asleep around ten PM. That’s early for me, but I was tired for some reason.

I woke around eight AM this morning, and after I brewed coffee and made a simple breakfast, I spent two hours writing fresh material for my novel-in-progress. The book’s coming along well but I have no idea how it’s going to end. My main character has endured some very rough times and how he will ultimately cope with the fallout will be interesting to see.

I have a typical Monday in store for me. Right after lunch I’ll drive into the city to visit he YMCA for a workout and lap-swimming session. On my way home I’ll get a haircut, since I haven’t had one in five weeks and I’m looking a little unkempt. Not sure what I’ll do with my evening, but it’ll be a quiet one.

Have a nice Monday, friends.

Hot boys in the kitchen; nice afternoon on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

Remember the days when you went out cruising for sex on a Saturday night? If you got real lucky, you dragged a cute guy home with you and he spent the night. Then, on Sunday morning, you walked into your kitchen and there he was, stark naked and preparing breakfast for both of you.

Ah, the 1980’s …. 😉

I had a great time over at my buddy’s last night. We visited his neighborhood beach bar to listen to live music and watch sunset while savoring a few beers. Then we returned to his house, where we dined on leftovers I’d brought with me. After dinner, I was feeling kind of tired, so I took a two hour nap before driving home.


By the way, how would you like to have Mr. Skimpy Briefs to the left here, sauntering about your kitchen on a Sunday morning? With any luck you could convince him to spend the day at the beach with you. 😉

I slept in late this morning, after sitting up an reading for two hours after I returned home form my friend’s house. Another friend was staying in my vacation rental next door, and we hung out for a while, down at the beach. Yeah, the temperature was kind of warm, but a nice breeze blew and we stayed cool in the Gulf.

After the beach, I came back to the house, where I showered outside on the patio. Then I watched the last half of the Tampa Bay Bucs game against New Orleans. The Bucs won (for a change) and I think I like our new quarterback, a Mr. Fitzgerald, a big guy with a beard and (so I hear) a brain. 🙂

Anyway, I’m here by myself this evening, ready for a relaxing evening. Wherever you are today, I hope you’re having a nice Sunday.

Cute guys in backward ball caps; nice Saturday in store for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

I really like the look of an attractive young man sauntering about with his ball cap turned backward. I’m not sure why I find it so appealing, perhaps because the backward cap lends a guy an air of irreverence, but I think the two young men in today’s photo posts look great in their caps. Yummy!

I shared a quiet evening with my next door neighbor last night, and got myself to bed at a reasonable hour. This morning, I slept until nine o’clock, I guess I’m still getting rid of my jet lag. (Remember, I only arrived back in the U.S. a week ago, after three weeks in Europe.)

Anyway, I feel rested and ready for a relaxing Saturday. And no, I won’t be wearing my ball cap backward. That style, in my opinion, should belong solely to guys under the age of thirty.

Outside, it’s a typical early September day–hot, sunny and humid. And way to steamy for outdoor yard work. I will stay indoors and work on a few housekeeping projects that require my attention. I may watch a little football on TV as well, if I can find a good game.

Tonight, I will take leftovers over to a friend’s house who lives about eight miles north of me, in a neighboring beach community. Before we dine, we’ll visit an open-air bar, right on the beach, where live music always plays and the drinks are inexpensive. We’ll enjoy the music and watch sunset, then return to my friend’s house to enjoy our evening meal.

I have know my friend since I was eight years old. We grew up in the same neighborhood in west St. Petersburg, and we always enjoy each other’s company. Okay, everyone, have a great Saturday, wherever you might be today.

A recent photo of Martin; quiet night on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

My traveling companion in Germany and Italy took this photo of me when we stayed one night near the Austrian border, outside of Berchtesgaden, a town close to Adolf Hitler’s vacation retreat, which has since been demolished. It’s a pretty part of Germany, and a popular area for skiing during winter.

I’m back from the YMCA after a great workout and lap-swimming session.  I stopped by the wine market on my way home to stock my supply for the weekend. It’s quiet, here on the island this evening, and thunder is rumbling in the distance. My part of Florida’s been experiencing storms most every day of the week for the past three weeks, but we don’t mind because it keeps things cool.

Anyway, I heard from a friend who I’ll spend time with this evening, drinking some wine and visiting our favorite burger place for dinner. It should be fun, and maybe we’ll take a swim afterward if the weather permits.

Have a nice Friday night, friends.


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

Hi, friends and readers:

I’m a huge fan of black-and-white photography, so at least once a week I try to put up some of my favorites for your viewing pleasure.

See the young man to the left here? About 12 years ago, I rented a flat in Berlin, Germany for the summer months. During my stay there, I met a young man who lived with me for two weeks. He looked pretty much like Mr. Shirtless to the left and, believe me, those two weeks were pretty amazing. I wonder where my friend is today?

I was up around eight this morning, after spending a pleasant evening in the city with one of my oldest friends. We drank a few beers and caught up on each other’s lives before getting takeout for our dinner. I was home by 9:30 PM and wasn’t up too late, as I’m still recovering from jet lag from my Eurotrip.

Here’s another favorite black-and-white. He looks exactly like Tyler, a character in my short story titled Fuck Me…Please. It appears in my anthology titled Sebastian Inlet. Here’s how the narrator, Forrest, describes Tyler’s appearance:

“He was my age, probably five-ten, maybe one hundred and fifty
pounds. He had what I call “pretty boy” features: a turned up nose, dick-sucking lips, and craggy cheekbones. His eyelashes were long, like a girl’s. When he blinked, it was hard not to notice. His hair was dark, cut short on the sides, a bit of length on top.”

Sebastian Inlet can be purchased from Amazon. You can click on the book’s cover in the sidebar to the right on this page, and you’ll be directed to the Amazon site where the book’s available.

I have an easy Friday ahead of me. I spent most of my morning writing fresh material for my novel-in-progress, which is now at 42,000 words, and nowhere near its end. I hadn’t done any fresh writing since leaving for Europe in early August, and it felt good to have my creative juices flowing again.

Right after lunch I will drive into the city to visit the YMCA for a workout and lap-swimming. I have no plans for my evening yet, but hope to spend it with a friend, drinking wine on my deck and maybe grabbing a burger down the street.

Have a great Friday, everyone.

Hot guys and their cameras; Martin’s a mechanical genius ….

Hi, friends and readers:

I’m not a huge fan of selfies, but occasionally I will come across a couple that I feel are worthy of sharing with you guys, so this afternoon I am putting up two of my favorites.

The guy in the photo to the left here is, in my mind, close to physical perfection: great body, nice skin and hair. What more could anyone ask for in a boyfriend? I wonder what this boy’s name is and where he lives. I’m guessing he’s Dylan, a community college student in southern California who spends way to much time surfing the Internet in search of his favorite porn. 😉

Upon my return from Europe I created a list of project and goal I want to work on in the months ahead. Once task was replacing the pump on my garden fountain, which quit a working about six weeks ago. I already had a replacement pump, but whoever designed this fountain was an idiot. The task took over two hours. I am no handyman–I did a lot of cursing–but now the job is done and the fountain is once again gurgling.

By the way, if you find the young man to the left here as appealing as I do, you can see a lot more of him through the link I am posting below. And don’t follow the link if you’re under 18 or male nudity offends you. This guy has an amazing body, great hair, and some ample equipment between his legs. 😉


I told you he was hot, didn’t I? Have a nice Thursday evening, friends, and keep on smiling. It’s important.

Sexy blond guys; Martin’s getting back in his hometown groove ….

HI, friends and readers:

We all have our own peculiar tastes when it comes to men. Me, I like slender guys with fair skin, dark eyes and dark hair. That’s my hing and it’s has always been that way for me.

But I know a lot of gay men like nothing better than a young man with blond hair and blue eyes. You know, the recessive genes types, like the two in today’s photo posts.

The guy in the top photo is, I believe, a porn actor, but I don’t know his name. He certainly has a classic athletic body, and I like his bushy blond hair. Is he standing in front of a soccer goal?

Well, if you follow this site, then you know I have just returned from spending three weeks in Europe. During that time I tried to get some regular exercise. I was able to swim laps only once, but I took two-miles run probably eight times. I also did lots of walking, and lots of stair-climbing.

Just the same, I know I put some weight on while in Europe, and I’ve already begun working on losing whatever I gained during my travels. My ideal weight is 175 pounds, but right now I’m around 180. So, Monday I ran two miles here on the island. Today I drove into the city to visit the YMCA for a full workout and lap swimming. Now I’m already feeling better and on my way back to 175. 🙂

By the way, do you find the young man to the left as appealing as I do? He’s so cute, but he has a troubled expression on his face. Is his daddy angry with him?

I’m home from the YMCA and ready for a nice evening. I’m having two good friends over for dinner. I’m cooking a baked pasta dish I particularly love. I’ll team that up with a garden salad and garlic bread. And of course the wine will flow. It should be fun. I have know these guys since they were eighteen years old, and now they’re in their mid-30’s. You can’t beat old friends, can you?

Have a nice Wednesday evening, friends, and keep on smiling. It’s important. 🙂

Guys with amazing butts; Martin’s brain is fried ….

Hi, friends and readers:

If you follow this site then you know I am a huge fan of the male rear end. Nothing is quite as sexy and beautiful as a smooth, rounded and firm male behind. I mean, look at the butts on the guys in tonight’s photo posts. I could spend hours just stroking and squeezing those rears. Aye-yi-yi …. 😉

Well, Martin’s brain is a bit crisp around the edges this evening, friends. As you know, I spent three weeks in Europe during August. I only returned to Florida Saturday. Awaiting me were the final edits form my publisher on my soon-to-be-released novel. It’s a 75,000-word book. Yesterday and today I spent countless hours going through the manuscript page by page, to be sure there were not any errors. Mind you, the manuscript has already been reviewed by two editors, but you’d be amazed by the little mistakes that slip through the cracks in a book of that size. Now, as far as I know, the book is error-free and ready to go to press. (At last!)

Anyway, I just finished up my review, after spending all day at my keyboard. My eyes are tired and so is my brain, so I’m ready for a cold bottle of beer and a few glasses of wine with my evening meal.

By the way, would you like to swim in a lake with the young man to the left here. His ass is simply amazing, isn’t it? I wonder if he’s a ballet dancer or some sort of athlete. Why can’t I have a butt like that?

I don’t have much planned for my Tuesday evening. I’ll bake a chicken breast, boil some rice, and prepare a fruit salad for my dinner. After I clean up the kitchen I’ll read a new and lengthy novel by Stephen King called The Outsider. I don’t normally read King’s books as I’m not into horror. But I read some nice reviews on this one so I thought I would give it a try.

Have a nice Tuesday night, friends.

Beautiful guys in Speedos; rainy Labor Day on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

Aside form a jockstrap, no other garment flatters a young man’s physique better than a Speedo-style swimsuit. The suit leaves little to the imagination. It covers only the smallest of a guy’s body, and it looks so sexy on a young man blessed with the right kind of proportions.

How would you like to spend an afternoon at the beach with Mr. Boogie Board to the left here? I wonder what his name is and where he lives? I’m guessing he’s Paolo from Rio de Janiero. Yummy …. 😉

I had a friend over for dinner last night, and we passed a pleasant evening together. After he left, I ended up falling asleep on my back porch, a victim of my screwed-up body clock. My brain still thinks I’m in Europe, I guess.

Anyway, I woke up this morning at 6:30 and never went back to sleep. I stayed in bed another hour, then finally got up. After a quick breakfast, I launched into my review of copy edits from my publisher for my new novel that releases at the end of this month.

By the way, doesn’t the guy to the left here look great in his Speedo with all that water streaming over his body? Aye-yi-yi …. 😉

It’s past two PM now, and I have completed my first review of the copy edits. (Whew.) I’ll do a second review tonight and tomorrow before sending them back to my editor. In just a little but I plan to take a two-mile run, here on the island.

Because today is Labor Day, traffic on our streets would normally prohibit me from running, but the weather has been rainy and overcast most of today and the beach goers have stayed home. The cool damp weather will be perfect for a run. 🙂

Have a nice Monday, friends.
