Thanks, I'd like to get my husband some, maybe sheets to frame. He's actually got a leather-clad Tom of Finland doll, sporting an impossibly huge boner. The size of a GI Joe figure, he had it displayed on the dressing room counter. But when we engaged a cleaning lady I requested he put it away. I still have to make that up to him.
Tom of Finland is part of our gay heritage, if out of date now. Today he's more of a historical note. I used to have a Tom of Finland lapel pin on the back of my motorcycles, along with rainbow pins, gay triangles, Pride pins, PFLAG, and other gay indicators. Back in the '90s even many gays didn't know what those symbols meant, much less most straights. Nowadays I just display an HRC equals sign. Times change.
