Alejandro was born in one of the most beautiful parts of the world, Baja California. Perhaps that’s why he seems to have a natural talent for capturing beautiful men. See more of his work here, or visit AlejandroCaspe.com.
Biker’s get naked for Earth Day
By Christopher Crosby in the Maine Campus
As the sun glinted off of assembled bikes, the air ripe with the smell of drying paint and the scents of spring, a slight breeze carried trills of nervous laughter and ruffled through shirts and pants scattered haphazardly on the packed dirt road.
Around me, belt and bra buckles unclasped in unison and fell to the ground.
I hesitated, looking around at the 50 plus people in various states of undress and, taking a deep breath, I removed the last vestiges of my modesty.
For nature and journalism, I was prepared to do my part.
Whether loved or hated, the much-anticipated naked Earth Day bike ride, a University of Maine tradition, was back again.
Dating back to 1970, April 22 sees celebrations on campus of International Mother Earth Day, as it is recognized by the United Nations.
Embracing the all-natural spirit, I joined other brave souls to bare all for the planet. Disrobing, we smeared ourselves in green paint — some applying lotion to keep themselves sleek and shiny.
I arrived at the determined meeting point — the out-of-the-way intersection of Grove Street and Allagash Road — panting for breath. My trusty steed, a relic of a bicycle with two flat tires, seemed inadequate. I was sure I would end up separated from the group.
Trying to shake my trepidation, Amy M-, one of the event’s organizers, said it was the largest showing of nude bikers she had seen in her three rides.
“It’s great every year,” she said. “It’s liberating.”
Bryan Mayo, a relaxed three-year naked ride veteran and co-organizer for this year’s event, described what would be the worst-case scenario.
“Falling off your bike,” Mayo said. “It’s the only rule we really have: If one person goes down, we all wait.”
After clothes are removed and collected in a volunteer’s car, the crew sets off. John V- and Robert K- — struck by a touch of genius and wielding the shaft of a vuvuzela — lashed a chair to a platform and pulled the contraption behind a bike chariot-style.
The most adventuresome of the lot — a unicyclist whose wheel was adorned with a paper reconstruction of the earth — boldly peddled in the front of the line.Pin It

Why are so many actors dropping their pants?
A film’s success rises or falls on the smallest of details. And so it was that the director of this month’s medieval stoner comedy Your Highness found himself in a boardroom with the suits at Universal Studios, discussing every last facet of his minotaur’s manhood. How to light the half-man/half-bull’s prosthetic appendage? How large should the dimensions be? And what would the anatomy suggest about the beast’s religious leanings? “We took the leap, culturally, and we circumcised him,” the director, David Gordon Green, explains.
Yes, much has changed in Hollywood since Clark Gable pushed the boundaries of taste by appearing without an undershirt in 1934’s It Happened One Night. For decades the dividing line between an R and an X rating was decidedly phallic-shaped. Not anymore. Male genitalia are getting unprecedented screen time at the multiplex and all over premium cable. “Male nudity has a humorous value because it’s taboo,” says Green, whose film garnered an R. “There’s a gracefulness to the female form that’s subject to this Last Tango in Paris, Jayne Mansfield–type of adoration. Where guys just don’t get the same shot. So that, for me, is where it’s ripe to come in and pull the pants down.”
Full-frontal dude-ity isn’t limited to visual punchlines in comedies like Forgetting Sarah Marshall and this summer’s The Hangover Part II. Male genitals (or, to use the now popular Hollywood vernacular, “peens”) are cropping up across the cultural grid, on cable shows like Starz’s Spartacus: Blood and Sand and HBO’s Game of Thrones, and in blue-chip Broadway fare like Equus, where Daniel Radcliffe showed he’s more than just Harry Potter. Over the years, A-list actors like Richard Gere, Tom Cruise, and Ewan McGregor have also played the full-monty card to establish their dramatic bona fides, but the full-frontal shots were fleeting. Now nude guys get much more hang time.
Take the Showtime reality series Gigolos, which follows the sexploits of high-priced male escorts plying their trade in Las Vegas. Even when the men aren’t shown servicing their female clientele, the show features no shortage of man parts. “Depending on your perspective and upbringing, more male nudity can be viewed as less repressed and more balanced with what we see of women,” says Gigolos executive producer Jay Blumenfield. “Or it can be a sign of the coming apocalypse. Our feeling is that a naked body is nothing to be ashamed of.”
The trend has Hollywood directors facing the kinds of casting decisions that used to bedevil their porn-making brethren. For a sequence in March’s raunch comedy Hall Pass, Owen Wilson’s doofus character passes out in a gym hot tub and is revived by a naked man in the locker room. The nude guy was a small part, but the movie’s directors, Bobby and Peter Farrelly, had to vet reams of actors’ photos to find someone who, uh, fit the bill. Once they’d found their man and were shooting the sequence, Wilson began to fret about photos of the scene leaking from the set. “That was Owen’s biggest fear in doing that scene,” Bobby Farrelly says. “Someone’s going to snap a picture of that on their phone, and it was going to get out before the movie was released. At least now there’s context for him hanging out with this giant penis.”

You might wonder why such a beautiful, well shaped man would be hesitant to undress before a prospective partner. You might even be willing to give up almost anything you own to hung like that, to be able to shower in the gym without modesty, or walk along a nude beach and watch heads turns with envy and admiration. So what would a man like Jozef be self-conscious about? Why would he agonize in the days and hours before an intimate date with a new partner?
Jozef is like so many of us who are haunted by Mother Nature’s creativity. It happened on an occasion with a woman who takes notice of his chest. One comment was all it took. Words. Words of surprise or shock or amazement. Words said that enter our minds like a tsunami and desecrate our self-esteem and masculinity.
It’s the same story. A boy is made fun of in the junior high locker room because of his small penis. It could have been his big ears, or his crooked teeth, or maybe his butt looks like a girl’s. One sentence is all it takes, or a mocking laugh, and a young man is destined to suffer his perceived ‘flaw’ for the rest of his life. If it happened to Jozef in the Netherlands, it’s not just an American thing–it happens to boys and young men all over the world. So what can be said to change these perceptions of our self image? Both Jozef and I, along with many others, are hoping what is said on this site is taking a first step in that direction. Men are beautiful creations, glorious in their diverse designs–it’s no more complicated than that. I hope Jozef has learned to celebrate his beautiful nipples, to share them eagerly, and that he’s aware of the fact that there are countless men lusting after him because of these pictures. He stated his goal, shared by me, a quote from Ghandi: “I want freedom for the full expression of my personality.”
In his own words from a fascinating man:
In my life, that is at least for the first 25 of them, I have been too shy and my upbringing too Catholic to approach people with a sexual intent. Instead from a very young age I have in that period always been hit on by man and woman alike. I have never felt any uneasiness with either sex until in my late teens I learned about the term homosexuality. The way men and women kept approaching me never changed though. I got more weary of gay men and felt uncomfortable by some of there uninhibited actions but secretly, at least for the next 20 years, I enjoyed male sex. At 42 after another break up with a woman and several hundreds of male sexual experiences I was single and choose to stay that way to sort out my complex sexual life. I continued with having sexual experiences with men and women and it showed me after time that I was happy with myself by myself. I didn’t need anybody for my happiness. As before I always needed people of whatever gender to make me feel wanted and now I was happy just being with me. Sex became less urgent and wasn’t an escape anymore to feel loved. With sex more in the background then ever before and after 4 years on my own I met a woman. I didn’t fell in love with her (for the first time in my life!) but had this incredible attraction to her when we hugged. I felt comfortable and at home with this simple move. No sexual arousal whatsoever. After that short moment, it lasted maybe 5 secs, I saw her a couple of times but we just had conversation. I told her very honestly without any holding back about my life and what I wanted from it. I was at a stage in my life (and she obviously had the demeanour) to be comfortable at being fully open about myself, it felt like a catharsis. Before on several occasions I had always spoken to newly met woman whom I felt attracted to with reservation when it concerned my sexual attraction towards men. Not now though. I let it all out and it felt very powerful. Nothing to lose, nothing to gain. Just being me. After that we saw each other regular and we had sex too but that didn’t feel anymore as the major deciding part of a good foundation for a relationship. For the first time in my life sex wasn’t anymore the deciding factor to feel good with another human being. It was the connection we had which was and still is the main pillar in our relationship. After some months we decided to live together and with my first trip abroad I found condoms in my wash bag and I hadn’t put them there! With that statement she honoured our agreement that sex outside our relationship was accepted as long as it was done safe. Two things have changed me since them. First I haven’t felt the urgency as much anymore to hunt and score. Secondly I am more and more in love with my wife ( been together now 10 years and married for 3) and can’t see any reason to change that. I still very much enjoy sexual encounters mainly with men since most men, whether gay, bi or ‘straight’, are like me into quick sexual release. So far I have never felt attracted to men in a way that I would want to be with them on a daily basis. It has always been sex driven. Same with women actually, accept for now with Rosie. Love and lust, they are definitely separate but can be so (confusingly at times) close too.

Some 70 per cent of Irish women under the age of 30 are happy to go topless while on holidays, a new survey has shown.
According to the the results of recent research carried out by Club 18-30, there is a marked contrast between racy 18-30-year-old holidaymakers and the more reserved over 30s.
According to the online survey of several hundred Irish holidaymakers, 70 per cent of 18-30 year old females are happy to sunbathe topless, but more than 50 per cent of over 30s rule this out completely.
Similarly, about 50 per cent of men under 30 don’t have a problem visiting a nude beach, while almost 60 per cent of their older counterparts would be uncomfortable doing so.
Meanwhile, close to 68 per cent of males are happy to have their other halves sunbathe topless.
“The youth market which we are serving clearly like to let loose,” says Sharon Harney of tour operator Club 18-30. “‘They want a relaxed, fun-loving time from their holidays, and are obviously a good deal more daring than the previous generation.”
Men claim to be much more comfortable in their own skin than women, with 35 per cent believing they have the ideal beach body, compared to only 7 per cent of women.
Oddly, the study found a number of men willing to answer a question on what male has the most idyllic body and 42 per cent voted for Matthew McConaughey.
Amongst women, Kim Kardashian has the most desirable bikini body, closely followed by curvy British contender Kelly Brook.Pin It
How many boys in the throes of puberty look around the locker room and discover they have a small penis, only to suffer an unfounded emotion that haunts them the rest of their lives. They look on the Internet and see countless pages of well-hung men, and they come to believe they are the only one with such a small penis. They read articles that declare ‘size matters’, and then they stare into space feeling inadequate. If this is you, you are reluctant to shower with other men at the gym, to undress with your partner with the light on, to spend a day at a nude beach. You believe every man you see has a bigger dick than you.
In actuality, you are among the majority of men that have a small to average size penis. Perhaps you haven’t heard from the countless men and women who prefer smaller dicks, who think they look better and more proportionate, who think they’re more practical and versatile. In actuality, you are one among some very beautiful men.
This sequel was amazing! I was hooked from the first page to the last! The direction you took with the sequel has me speechless. I started reading this amazing story at noon and finished a few minutes ago. I could not stop reading until I finished because I had to know the outcome of the trial, and if Michael’s son would finally get over his anger about his dad and if their good friend Collin would live long enough to see the clinic and the new park completed. The trial scene had me on the edge of my seat! The sex scenes warmed me up in a good way. ‘Laughing’ I could not have asked for a better sequel to my all time favorite book written by you! I will be reading this book over and over again like I do ‘A Song in the Park’!
BUCKINGHAMSHIRE, England — A local British computer software company is recruiting web coders to work in the nude.
The nudist-run software developer, Nude House, is a division of a larger company, Songbird, founded in 1977 by naturist Chris Taylor that markets a promotional e-commerce application called “Move your Mouse.”
A CraigsList ad from Nude House said it is looking for “lots of very attractive, nude young girls — 20-39″ who should be practicing nudists to sell its software and who can code.
The company is also looking for “attractive young, nude men” although no age was listed.
Company spokesman Chris Taylor told The Register, “As far as I am aware this is not only the first U.K. office job for naturists in web-coding or web-selling, but is also the first worldwide facility for naturists to earn substantial sums of money from work that incidentally provides them with the capability to work entirely without clothes.
“Because it is the first establishment in the world it is difficult to advertise — many seem to confuse the issue of being without clothes as being a place without concerns for personal freedom, where sex is paramount in its many varied forms.”
A web page for the company states, “New applicants will be required to work in the nude from the time they arrive at work until they leave to go home. Nude means no clothes whatsoever and no shoes either. Each of you — male or female — will behave decorously.”
The response so far has been modest, according to the company, that’s looking to fill up to 17 positions.Pin It
Meet Bear, age 57, model, actor and horseman. His 180 pounds are a fine landscape of masculinity beautifully sculpted over a 6’3″ frame. His tattoos are tribal symbols. The numerous scars all over his body are the result of an active and adventurous life. Of course he owns a ranch in the mountains of Utah. Add to all of this the fact he is at home in his own body and couldn’t tell you what it’s like to have inhibitions. If Bear is not the proverbial American male, then such a man no longer exists. Artists and photographers can contact him at Model Mayhem.
