Which is it? Naked or Not?

    Several friends and I had recent discussion on which is preferable: Pics of naked men or pics of nicely built men in shorts, swimsuits, etc.

    I tend to prefer the latter and even save a few of what I consider to be exceptional pics from magazines like "Exercise for Men Only", etc. I like mystery.
    What do you have or like?

    I have 3 of Steve Walker's prints.... "On a Clear Day" from a friend in Toronto and then a couple of others including the one with the beagle. He has an interesting style...

    I'm a fan of a guy in a swim suit or underwear.

    I love the WPA era art, but I don't know enough about it to have an intelligent conversation.

    regarding the initial post on this thread:

    I prefer with shorts. It's not so much about the sex for me, but rather the artistry of a finely sculpted figure.

    (Then again, I prefer my erotica in text form, so I may be a little off the mainstream.)

    Haha. Lots of people like erotica in text form Mark, it was usually the thing in a porn mag that made me hold onto a particular issue, rather than throw it away.

    I think guys wearing a bit of clothing tend to look sexier than naked guys, leaves a bit to the imagination.

    Nude beaches tend to have the least sexy guys on them. Maybe they'd look better with swimwear.

    Lozx

    It depends... I like artfully done photos. I actually pay attention to the composition of the entire picture, as opposed to just the central figure. I probably do this because photography is a hobby of mine, and I'm really focused on overall compostition right now. If its a well-composed, artfully done shot it doesn't matter to me if the guy is naked or fully clothed or somewhere in between.

    There are some nude pictures I've seen that would have been much better with the guy clothed... or at least partially covered... because the composition of the shot creates an ambiance that would be better served by a little mystery. Conversely, I've seen shots of men that would have been much better completely nude, because the composition of the shot made the attempt to be sexy look... well... cheap.

    Either way, I do appreciate the beauty of the male form, clothed or naked. A beautiful man is art on two legs... icon_wink.gif

    I used to work at an adult studio here in the city.I had to go though tons of porn dating way back to the 70's. I have seen it all and have became nonchalant about it. I love a good swimsuit and underwear, but I’m beyond all that modest stuff now show me all of your body lol.icon_twisted.gif

    You take any art history class and you'll know that mystery always brings a sense of captivation to most people that's far longer term than just having seen a guy flash his package. I definitely prefer nicely built men over any naked men (especially more so if the naked men don't have anything else special about them other than the fact that they're naked)

    I like masculine underwear, except those that leave no mystery at all (95% of http://www.undergear.com/). Besides that, the sexiest look is a guy in jeans and no shirt.

    Naked, explicit pictures are a total turn-off for me.

    I don't own any porn, because I prefer looking at partially clothed guys when I fantasize.

    I agree with most of you guys, a pic with a guy in shorts, jock strap, even some sweat pants and an unzipped sweatshirt looks way hotter than a total naked guy. I think it is all about the possibilities that makes it the pic better.

    In all honesty, I always fail to see the artistic merit in pictures of men (clothed or naked). I think it is because it is usually found on coffee tables at gay men's houses. I rather look at real men than a picture.

    I prefer to look at a guy in his underwear than naked. Leave it to the imagination and then take em off him! There is just something about a hot man in his underwear or swimsuit that does it for me. icon_evil.gif

    I'm a fan of tight but a little coverage. Mystery and suspense and all that.

    Artistically, naked is better. I like to see all the lines and shadows, how the muscles fit together.

    Erotically, shorts are far better! Or a pair snug fitting jeans, shirtless and barefoot. rowr

    Now, that is hot... one detail I would add is that the top button on the jeans should be open. Mmmmmmmm.

    Would this guy be sexier if the top button of his jeans was undone? icon_eek.gif
