Appreciation for the Male Form

Russell Windle

Are you ready for testosterone overload?

If you are one of the many that believe the male form is among Mother Nature’s finest work, Russell Windle creates photographic art that you will appreciate.nude male

Like me, Russell is a native Dallasite. He grew up in the Oak Cliff suburb of Dallas.  On his thirteenth birthday in 1963 he received his first camera.nude male

The first shots he took were of the floral tributes that covered the grassy knoll area near Dealy plaza outside of downtown Dallas after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. nude male

He has had a camera with him ever since and endeavors to capture “moments in time” that tell a story or set a mood.Nude Male

Russell worked as a wedding photographer for many years and afterwards he worked with a number of agencies in the North Eastern part of the US; focusing on sportswear, casual, formal, and swimwear photography.Nude Male

One agency Russell worked with, Eagle Male, changed the direction Russell would follow for the remainder of his photography career.Nude Male

Russell’s work with the Eagle Male introduced him to working with the male form in a more pure light, not enhanced by form flattering clothing, the use of makeup, and overt illusions of associations to commercial products. Nude Male

For Russell, this type of photography was truly liberating and refreshing – the opportunity to capture the beauty of male musculature, the character found in a man’s face, and the power of the male presence highlighted with only simple shadows.  It was at this point that Russell found his niche in the world of fine art male model photography. Nude Male

Russell is a friend of mine. He has offered to take some pictures of me, not promising to make me look as good as the beautiful men illustrated here, and I’m not hoping to become a key representative in Russell’s huge portfolio. Nude Male

The incredible thing about the male body is every part of it is designed to be functional. Nature’s genius is in making all these body parts come together to make a visually beautiful whole, which is masterfully captured in Russell’s work. The question is: is this composition of male parts actually beautiful, or have we simply been programmed to see it that way?Nude Male

Male Perspective

small280 As you probably know, men with small penises are celebrated on this website. Why? For one thing, there are so many of them. Half the men on the planet are under 5.9″ erect, many considerably under. Preferences are another reason. Though a small majority (see the poll below) prefer larger penises, nearly half say size doesn’t matter or they prefer a smaller size. And for a good many bisexual and gay men, guys with smaller penises are the stuff dreams are made of. If you doubt that, look at some of the comments made on one of the most popular posts on this site.

 Beautiful Man, Small Penis …

“Prostate Cancer” … not always the end of the line!

I’ll call him Tom. He lived through the ordeal of dealing with prostate cancer. He wants to tell his story in hopes of helping others that may be at risk, or who may be going through it themselves.


Prostate Cancer

To: Martin Brant

I am married with grown up children and am writing this in the hope that in some way it may help someone else in a situation facing the prospect of dealing with Prostate Cancer who is a visitor to your web site. Or possibly it prompts someone to go to see their doctor if they are all concerned about prostate cancer.

In the autumn of 2007 I agreed to be part of the ProTect study being undertaken by Bristol and Cambridge Universities into prostate cancer (PCa). Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) levels do not necessarily indicate that an individual has PCa as they do fluctuate quite a lot and are only a possible indication that something is wrong. Obviously if the level is extremely high then it is much more likely the disease is present. However a slightly high level may be offset by a subsequent one that is quite normal. Initially it only meant having a blood test to ascertain PSA. The norm for men of my age at the time was 4 but the study was including those with a PSA higher than 3. There are symptoms that give an indication that you may be suffering from PCa which include having to get up several times in the night to go to the loo. I had no such problem and thought there was no reason why I should have the disease. My father who lived to 100 had PCa but it was not the cause of his death. When I received the letter with my PCa, which turned out to be just over 3, it included a request that I attend hospital for a biopsy. Rather than just accept the situation I decided to go to see my own doctor for his advice. He suggested I had another PSA test as the levels do fluctuate. The result came back over 4 so his advice was to have the biopsy and hopefully put my mind at rest.

I duly went and had the biopsy which they said might be a little painful and cause you to pass blood in urine and possibly in your stools for a short while. It meant having an ultrasound of the prostate via the back passage first to identify exactly where the prostate sat and then two sets of five biopsies from each side of the prostate. In my case I did not have any pain at all and very little bleeding subsequently, although I do know that others did not have quite such an easy time. It was then a question of having to wait for the result.

I subsequently received a letter with an appointment for me to get the results of the biopsy. With hindsight it could have meant only one thing, I had the disease; otherwise I’m sure I would have had a letter saying that everything was ok. I persuaded my wife it was not necessary for her to come with me for the results as I was not really concerned at that time about the outcome. When I spoke to the doctor he first asked if I would agree to our conversation being recorded, I had no objections especially if it would help the research. He then went on to say that I had 20% cancer in two of the cores of biopsies. It was at an early stage and I had three options and also as part of the study they were asking if I would agree to ‘randomisation’ which meant that a computer would pick one of the options for me, but once agreed I would have to stick to it.

What was my first reaction? I suppose at the back of my mind it was what I really expected, I don’t know why, call it a sixth sense perhaps so I didn’t fall to pieces, something that surprises me when I look back as I can be quite an emotional person.

The three options were explained and were

1) Watchful Waiting, with regular PSA tests so that any significant increase could be identified and the possibility of taking one of the other two options considered

2) Have Radiotherapy or Brachytherapy, and

3) Have surgery to remove my prostate.

My initial thought was to ‘get rid’, but first to get a better idea of what the consequences of the options were I decided to talk to a radiographer and surgeon at the hospital.

The first option ‘Watchful Waiting’ meant doing nothing other than having regular PSA tests. This would still leave a chance that the cancer could break through the wall of the prostate and once outside could spread to the lymph glands and then travel around the body.

With radiotherapy the radiographer seemed to think it would be very straight forward but it would mean a daily (weekday) visit to the hospital for six weeks which, from my research, most people found quite tiring from the travelling as well as the therapy. In my case Brachytherapy (implanting radioactive ‘pills’ directly into the prostate to kill the cancer) was a no go as you need a good urine flow as the inflammation around the urethra tends to squeeze it up for a while and in my case would probably stop the flow altogether. The downside being possible incontinence and loss of erections.

Lastly the potential for an operation to remove the prostate. The potential side effects of the op were incontinence and the inability to get an erection without medical help e.g. Viagra etc. The surgeon I saw at the hospital said I had a 1 in 20 chance of being incontinent. It was at the time when the ‘Da Vinci’ machine was being first used by hospitals and the surgeon I spoke to was relatively new to using the machine. I did much investigation via the internet and discovered that to be successful with little or no side effects the op had to be done by a very experienced surgeon.  I found the prostate cancer web site ( extremely helpful as you were able to ‘talk’ to others who had been through the same, and often more difficult situations.

So I found an experienced surgeon who I felt very happy with who used the laparoscopic method and got him to do the op.  After the op I had to have a catheter which was removed after a week. During that time my erections started to return. So if anyone is in the same position and has decided to take the op route my suggestion is find a surgeon who does the op on a regular basis (not once or twice a year). If you can find an experienced surgeon (someone with several hundred op’s under his belt) talk to him and go from there.

I had intended writing this sooner but somehow life always seems to have got in the way, but I have at last managed to find time to finish off what I started several years ago. It’s now nearly several years since my op and my PSA continues at 0.01<, long may it continue.

I consider myself to have been very lucky, ok I had prostate cancer but it was picked up very early through a research project that I agreed to join voluntarily; and after having done my research into the various options I was in a position to be able to decide who did the op.

So, if you have any of these symptoms –

·         Needing to pee more often

·         Difficulty peeing or a weak flow

·         Straining or taking a long time to finish urinating

·         Feeling that your bladder has not emptied properly

·         Needing to rush to the toilet.

…please go and see your doctor, it’s better to be safe than sorry.

If you have got this far, thank you for reading the article and if the information helps even one person seek out help sooner rather than later it will have served its purpose.

Appealing Male Architecture


Everyone has their own idea of what an ideal male body looks like. For many Tim could be called a physically perfect man. He is an artist from the north of England (with some Scottish heritage) who has done some modelling. Tim trains for the strength rather than the look. He is heterosexual and married. He has worked with all manner of artists, colleges, private art groups, individual artists and the occasional gay artist who prefers the male form. He has done some hen party life modelling and found the ladies loved his round ass. His wife is okay about his modelling though it is very occasional these days. Like many Englishmen, Tim loves old things, churches, buildings, castles and sturdy trees creaking in as the gale blows over the landscape.


A quote from Tim

“A nude male is not necessarily gay or bisexual. I started modelling for art classes because I’ve done life drawings as an artist and drawn other nudes, both male and female, and let’s face it, a female model is not a lesbian because she models or performs as a striptease artist. Human sexuality is what it is and the nude form is simply natural and a delight to observe. I find that once one is comfortable with nudity, be it in one’s own dwelling or other place such as an art class or nudist venue then one has broken down a lot of barriers within oneself. I guess my outlook would be termed very liberal but that’s the way forward. Do away with prejudice and get rid of the labels that we fix to others and ourselves and then we can all move on.”


Tim has a thing about strength so he trains for the strength which is what has given him his beautiful body. He has been known to do over a thousand push ups in a day before he goes out to have a few beers. He also enjoys leg exercises because It’s good to have strong legs and he knows that those same exercises do wonders for the glutes. He has had his share of compliments concerning that part of his body.


Tim says: “There is nothing wrong with the nude human form in the correct environment and art is one of them. We are also sexual creatures and there is nothing wrong with admiring the nude human form without shame. Nudity should not be allowed just anywhere but it should not be as taboo as it is often made out to be. We should grow up.”


A rather intriguing shot from behind. Strength training has left no airspace between those shapely glutes. Call it tight if you will.


 Another intriguing shot from behind. This pose illustrates why male anatomy fascinates so many people, male and female, and not necessarily gay, though gay men have been onto male rears since the beginning of time. Male testicles dropping into view when a man squats down is one of the most fascinating and delightful things about a man’s body, and one of the reasons why I call Mother Nature such a magnificent artist.


 It’s been many years since Tim studied at art college. It was after that he thought about going to university to study humanities where he dared to pose nude for art classes. Since then he has also tried social nudity and found swimming nude very relaxing. He wouldn’t call himself a serial nudist but says it’s quite a relaxing state to be in from time to time.


 My thanks to Tim for sharing his thoughts and photographs. He has inspired me to spend more time in the gym.
