"Gay photography"... tasteful or tasteless?

    Example: There are 2 major "gay photograph ers" in my area, between the ages of 30-40 that seem to have a penchant for luring younger guys in for pictures for their "portfolios." What they really do is take nude or overly sexual pictures of these guys, get horny, and sleep with their clients. I just find most gay men who claim to be photographers only seem to take provocative pictures of other men... unbuttoned jeans, torso with arm thrown over head..jock strap..or completely nude. Is it really even that artistic if the photographer is doing it under the guise of getting his rocks off and being turned on by the photoshoots? I'm talking about those who take pictures of other men, not nature and stuff. Is it, in your opinion, oversexual?

    That's an extremely narrow vision. Art is just the ploy. Ever see "Fame", where the Irene Cara character is seduced by a sleazy photographer? Even then it was a cliche. Nothing new.

    Here are some real Gay photographers:

    Some are sexually provocative. Some are just provocative in thought. For all I know some models may have slept with the photographer. That's their business!

    A friend of mine did this when we were in college for a project. He got an A on it. I was happy to be a part of it. (No I didn't sleep with him!)

    I wonder if Mapplethorpe was doing it just for the big cocks? Can't say that I blame him.

    Well lordy! I was going to post the pic a friend took of me in my new reflective-tiled (I didn't plan on it, they just happen to reflect in natural light, not so much in artificial light) shower with clear glass doors ...it was a spur of the moment pic, very artistically sensual and seductive in the reflections.....but after the pissy remarks about Timmm55's penis size, never mind.

    LOL I'm pretty comfortable in my masculinity/cock size. At 7.5 x 6, not HUGE it's more than adequate. Hell I drive a Miata, I don't need a Monster Truck to make up for my inadequacies.

    Michelangelo's David is "Art", I hope he is a grower though! Hard cocks IMHO are the realm of porn.

    Oh, lord....Don't ever check out the hetero photographers luring young nubile wanna-be models into their studios and then fucking them. It is not a "gay" thang.

    With all due respect to Timmm with regard to my post, I wasn't being pissy on penis but about grout.

    I'm sure your penis expands nicely when you put your mind to it. I apologize if my post offended or in any way intimidated anyone from publicly parading their penis too.

    Had only I known others might post more penis, I'd not have said a word.

    I'm discovering that I'm becoming sorta "post-penis". Perhaps my age, or declining testosterone, I dunno. I still like the sight of a nice ass, though. icon_biggrin.gif

    More seriously, a penis still pleases me, but the sight of one just doesn't thrill me like it once did. Been there, seen that. They're all becoming the same dicks to me.

    Still like to suck one, but what have you got to show me that I haven't already seen, or can see, and touch, in my own bed every night?

    So the novelty & excitement just isn't there any more, that I once had. When a penis becomes routine, it becomes... routine.

    A gateway to pleasure, but visually little of interest as I grow older. Which can be a good thing, because now I can go into my gym locker room and not get an unwelcome stiffie at every naked guy I see. I find myself surprisingly detached from what had previously aroused me. Again, perhaps a sign of my age. icon_sad.gif

    I would ask the credentials of the photographers and or look at their previous work. If they can prove to me that their line of work is clearly just business and nothing else, then we can do the shoot. A lot of men and women get taken advantage of in this line of work, and looking at their portfolios or asking for credentials never hurt. However if your gut tells you it's wrong, most likely it is. It's funny we as humans are considered one of the most intellectual animals, however we are the ones that always falls short when it comes to natural instincts.

    Assuming nothing illegal is going on, I think it is incumbent on the guys being 'lured' to show some common sense. You would have to be hopelessly naive not to walk into such a situation with your eyes open. To go from 'portfolio shots' to 'nudes' to 'sleeping together' all in one session, would require a high degree of acquiescence from the 'client'. As for the photographers, if they are doing it simply for sexual kicks then it is in poor taste and seems a very laborious way of obtaining a bit of wanking material.

    When the sack of shit bon_salieri stops lying about me, stops harrassing me, referencing me, addressing me, etc., so will stop my postings about him into threads where he has posted, warnings to anyone unsuspecting the truth about him as shown in screenshots of his own words. If he stops, I’ll stop. It is that simple..

    Any situation or job that can be exploited by creeps who have no other way of accessing younger guys will be exploited, be it a "photographer", "mentor", "hiring a travel assistant", teacher, priest, etc icon_lol.gif

    The subject is obviously intended to be of a sexual nature. Just because a project contains adult material doesn't mean it's not artistic. I would only consider it "tasteless" if the photos were being displayed somewhere they shouldn't be, like at a school or church or doctor's surgery or something. I assume the photos would not be used inappropriately.
