A rare erection photo. Would this have been considered artistic or poronographic when it was taken?
Hello, Kyle!I'm glad you enjoy the blog. I love working on it every day.There are actually a lot of photos of aroused men from this era and earlier, though many aren't quite right for this blog.Before the 1940's, there was no such thing as a male model. So, it was quite shocking in the West when men were photographed and celebrated purely for their physical beauty.Check out this post on Mae West and her pivotal role in the birth of beefcake: http://malemodelsvintagebeefcake.blogspot.com/2010/08/richard-dubois.htmlAnd my interview with the founder of the Bob Mizer Foundation: http://mikethecontentproducer.blogspot.com/2012/06/it-was-almost-lost-forever-interview.htmlBest, Michael
