As I watched this guy, I felt a Mapplethorpe sensation come on. His beautiful sculpted body, glistening and strong. Some images draw you to the body, almost pushing you inside the flesh. Call it a primal eroticism, call it whatever - this moment had it.

Mapplethorpe sensation? Leave that to those who appreciate the exploration of manly eroticism better.

Sometimes, you do amaze me ...

Erhem... in the words of the late, great senator McCarthy, are you now or have you ever been a homosexual?

Being English, of course, seems to be an adequate answer in the positive to that question, so you don't have to answer, Jeremy, wink, wink.

Jeremy 8:38 pm  

shango you're so reductive, and it goes without saying homophobic. Have you never admired another guy's body before - or is your gay-hatred so deeply internalised you screen out such thoughts before they hit consciousness? Haba.

St Antonym 8:43 pm  

I agree, he's a fine specimen.

Shango,  9:55 pm  

I believe life is indeed reductive, if you don't believe me, dig up any dead bodies.

Actually, I have admired and do continue to admire a well-built male body; I love a well-formed female body even more. As it is, mine's nothing to write home about, so I do love my Adonises, my Davids, my Kuoroses and various sundry male models in addition to my Venuses, my Botticellis and many (too many) female models.

However, I wouldn't post about two boys frolicking with each other's bodies in the background of a picture I've taken only to follow it up with yet another picture of boy's body with his ass turned to me. That's a bit "strange." Heheh...

Also, I don't know where you get this idea I don't like homosexuals. Actually, I do. Many of them are some of the most refined people I've ever known, something I want to be when I grow up.

@st antonym: Finally you see what the Arab slavers meant! :-)

Just kidding, just kidding!! Sheesh.

Your use of "specimen" was a bit jarring for my obviously effeminate senses.

LOL! I like it how you say "he is a fine specimen" It's like you are trying to give him props but you don't want to over do it.

I'm a lover of the human body, especially the male one - the human body should be celebrated...he is a fine piece of...everything. ;)

Nice pictures though, when next I’m home I’m definitely going to visit all these places, especially the obudu cattle ranch, I heard that’s really nice. Do you by any chance have picture of that? I searched online but it wasn’t very fruitful.

Gurara. Now that is one wonderful place. Few times I've been there were always fun.

I'm so envious of y'all out there in the warmth. Down to 9 degrees this morning. Brrrr!

Hardly a Mapplethorpe "perfect moment"... a group of men all showing how brave they are to stare at a man with swimming shorts on, whilst boasting their "I am not a homophobe" routine "because I dare to ogle a black man." Robert M would have wanted the full frontal, uncut, not some cute fashion backside snap, and he'd have had sex with the model as part of the artistic experience.

Gbemi's Piece 1:16 pm  

It takes a man secure in his manhood to take that picture and make those statements. I say that to you without any judgements, but I'm not sure I would say the same to my man.

"because I dare to ogle a black man."

Boo. Anonymous, don't hide your own insecurities under race discourse.

"As I watched this guy" - he looks like a teenager. A Kid!

Nothing wrong with admiring another guy's body but then you mentioned "primal eroticism" which puts a different spin on it.
You then got defensive when Shango questioned your orientation.

I just wonder what the poor guy would think about that predatory take on his seemigly carefree dip.
