He understands men because he has photographed dozens of them, providing us with sensual images and the beauty of the human male.

Charles Archer on Model Mayhem

More and more people are accepting the natural beauty of the male form, in part because of photographers like Charles Archer. The old taboos are fading away, replaced with a definite appreciation of an art form that was considered the norm in the days of the Greek and Roman Empires. Charles Archer recognizes it. Without hesitation or inhibition, he shows us men who are in harmony with their bodies. He shows us their sensitivities, their thoughtfulness, their sensuality.

Charles attends the Maryland Institute College of Art, working towards a degree in photography. His classical art classes have lead him to look at his photography as a creative outlet. As an artist, he is looking to create his “David”.

Jon Mann’s Sensuous Photography

In creating a post, I usually feature ten or twelve examples of an artist’s work. In Jon Mann’s case, I couldn’t resist topping twenty. He brings you images you’ll think about again before the day is over, women you fantasize about, the girl next door with a delightful smile and a naughty streak. Within one image, he brings you mystery and innocence, beauty and intrigue, fantasy and the very real possibilities of a fortunate life. Jon Mann’s girls put themselves before his camera, and therefore before your eyes, uninhibited and exposing not only their feminine beauty, but the intrigues and beauty inside.

Can you imagine a photo-shoot between this talented photographer and these girls, the things they say, the poses they plan, the discussions about boundaries? Can you imagine the fun they must have combing over the finished pictures over coffee? Can you imagine paying your bills with a career like this?

She’s the girl you want to notice you, the girl you want to spend time with and get to know, the girl you want to marry.

Penis Size and Circumcision

A question from Yizreel:

Actually I have a question . Does circumcision have an effect on your penis size ? I’m 13 and want to be cut.

My reply:

Usually circumcision affects on your penis size no more than a haircut will make you look shorter. However, you are losing some skin, so of course your glans will appear to have a smaller diameter. Also, it depends on how much skin is cut off. If too much is cut, the lack of skin may restrict your erections, which may also cause discomfort; and some believe when infants are circumcised, and too much skin is removed, this restriction could inhibit penis growth. But at age thirteen, you may already be close to your full size.

This is an important decision for a guy your age to make. Think about it long and hard. If you’ve been teased in gym class or something like that, it would be tragic to give up your foreskin and then end up regretting it the rest of your life. And by the way, Yizreel, aren’t you supposed to be 18 to be on this site?

Side note:

Yizreel’s age points to an element of the human condition. This site is about human sexuality and the human body, presented in a frank and open manner, subjects we all are curious about once we reach puberty. If our society had it’s way, young people would be starved of this knowledge, picking up misguided scraps of information haphazardly. Our quest to protect young people from what has been labeled unsuitable for their age in effect jeopardizes an otherwise healthy lifelong perspective.

Consider the early American Indians, and various cultures around the world even today, families living in single room tents and huts. Nudity certainly isn’t an issue in these peoples lives, but what about the young people and even the children who wake up during the night and see their parents having sex? Or the ten-year-old that watches his mother breast feed a sibling? Are these young people detrimentally affected. Are they scarred for life? I happen to believe, as a whole, these young people growing up in these circumstances are far better adjusted to what should be the natural harmony of life.
