The Whimsical Art of Paul Richmond

One of the many things I like about men is their wit.  Paul Richmond displays his through his art.  In his world, boys can’t seem to keep their pants up, a problem, if only it were more widespread, would make this world a more interesting place.  See more at Paul Richmond Studio Blogspot.

Five Married Men . . . Reviewed

From a member of MMA2oM (married men attracted 2 other men)

I just finished reading Five Married Men. It is a book that truly speaks for men like us. Here is my review, which I also submitted at Amazon:

Five Married Men is first-rate literary entertainment, and much more. If you are looking for summer reading that grabs your attention, this is it. This novel has believably likable characters, intricate plot development, romance, sex, drama, suspense, humor, and action. There’s something for everyone.

More importantly for me, Five Married Men is an honest discussion of male bisexuality. As a bisexual married man who has just recently come out of the closet, I found this book to be heart-breaking in its accurate portrayal of the challenges that face men like me and their wives. I can’t say how much Martin Brant writes from experience, from thorough research, or from an incredible imagination. But I can say, from MY experience, that his fictional characters are as real as the men I’ve met in support groups, chat groups, and bars. The emotional conflicts, the clandestine meeting arrangements, the fear of discovery that are described in the book are happening all around us every day.

Male bisexuality is marginalized in this country. Today’s pop psychologists tell us that there is no such thing as a bisexual man. Even the GLBT community struggles to understand us. It’s high time a book like Five Married Men was published. Maybe it will start some discussions that are overdue. Believe me, there are a lot more bisexual men walking around than you can imagine. If we all came out of the closet at once, the whole gay/straight dichotomy would go the way of the dinosaur.

Don’t think for a minute that this book is all gloomy and depressing. It is also very provocative. Because Mr. Brant develops the characters so well, the sex scenes are much steamier than typical gay or straight erotica. If the text doesn’t turn you on, you’ll at least feel empathy for the lovers.

Five Married Men is a novel that reassures bisexual men they are not alone, and educates the rest of society.

Nude Photos Raise Questions about Private Lives of Judges

Judge Lori Douglas

From TheStar.com … Toronto Edition

By Tracey Tyler

Allegations that nude photographs of a senior Manitoba judge in bondage, chains and performing oral sex were posted on an Internet porn site have kindled debate about how much of a judge’s private life is private.

The Canadian Judicial Council’s Ethical Principles for Judges — which judges are encouraged but not required to follow — say they should strive to conduct themselves with integrity and avoid conduct that would diminish public respect for the judiciary.

Can someone who poses naked with a whip be considered a person of integrity, or does the question open the door to inappropriate moral judgments about an individual’s personal life?

“Do we imagine that judges never disrobe or that judges never have sex lives? Of course they do,” said Bruce Ryder, an Osgoode Hall Law School professor who teaches in the area of judicial independence and ethics.

Ryder worries that “prurience” and “moral prudery” will drive the debate over whether Associate Chief Justice Lori Douglas of the Court of Queen’s Bench of Manitoba should be removed from office.

Manitoba Chief Justice Marc Monnin announced Wednesday that Douglas, of the court’s family division, has asked to be “temporarily relieved of her duties as a sitting judge” and will work in an administrative capacity until a complaint to the judicial council is resolved.

Kitamba’s Photography

He young, talented, imaginative, artistic, impulsive and he has the sweetest ass this side of the Mississippi.  His photographs evoke these adjectives and more.  His photographs evoke the same kind of thoughts that must have passed through Hadrian’s mind when he first met Antinous.

He’s called Kitamba.  See more of what he’s into at Artistry of Male

Artistic Self-photography

I couldn’t find much about him; no website, nowhere to purchase prints or posters.  Otherwise these links would be posted here.  What I do know is he’s skilled amateur photographer.  He’s comfortable in his own skin.  He prepares a neutral, undistracting set.  He knows when to back away from the diner table.  He uses good lighting.  He shares something with us worth sharing.  And most of all, he’s delightful to look at.  All you guys out there taking pictures of yourself for the Internet–this is how it’s done.
