One of my favorite categories on FH is The Bottom line. My goal isn't just to find great posterior photos, but creative and unique captures of the shapeliest part of the male form. My Bottom Line folder however, runneth over, so I decided to post a larger selection of my favorites on page 2 HERE:
I know this is a bit of a Blast from the Past, but I recently discovered the Superstation PeachtreeTV is playing repeats of ER each evening. When I was in high school and University, Thursday nights meant trying to catch ER. I loved the first few seasons, crushing simultaneously over both Sherry Stringfield and Noah Wyle. I wasn't into George Clooney or the other older male cast members at the time, however re-watching now, I get the appeal of each of the 4 male leads.
Catching an episode last week, I was reminded the show occasionally dipped it's toe into a bit of male nudity, usually a flash of male butt. I previously post on Rick Rossovich's dark butt shot (HERE:) and Erik Palladino's moon (HERE:) in the shows blooper reel. In the 1996 episode, Don't Ask, Don't Tell, Carter (Noah Wyle) gives a quick butt flash while getting a tetanus shot shot from Dr. Gant. (Omar Epps)
Although dancer and actor Sam Salter has a smokin body, I could fill post after post with just images of his sexy head of hair. Although it looks like Sam recently cut it, and dyed it blonde, I think he looks incredibly hot with his poofy dark haired look.
After graduating from Laine Theatre Arts in Surrey, England, Sam and made his professional debut in the National Tour of West Side Story. Sam went on to appear in the West End production of Wicked, the National Tour of Cameron Mackintosh's Mary Poppins and the Regent's Park Open Air Theatre production of On The Town. If you love Sam's look as much as I do, check out many more shots on his Instagram HERE:
I am not usually a mask person, at least not in images of the male form. Masks and make-up, except at Halloween, are sometimes distracting. My goal is to tell a story, to share the creative process that led to the images that I'm presenting. To me, no matter how many words a photographer or a model shares, it's the image, the body, and especially the face that tell the real story.
With Jack Saul's images of Gatwick, I made an exception. First off, I love Jack's work and have featured his images many times in the past. Despite this, asearch of Jack Saul on FH won't lead to finding anything, except for this piece. The artist likes to remain a bit mysterious himself, but some of you may recognize his style and some of his signature shots.
The second reason I wanted to feature Jack's shots of Gatwick is of course, his incredible body. Although his face is covered, his incredible arms, legs and chest, not to mention the rest of his incredible body, are beautifully front and center. Every inch of Gatwick's body is captured by Jack, seductive and inviting. The mask, and it's element of mystery, adding an intensely provocative edge.
The third reason that I wanted to feature Jack's image of Gatwick is exactly the reason I usually don't like the use of masks... story. Although I can't share much of Gatwick's story, I can tell you it's a good one. Gatwick clearly has an exhibitionist streak, a desire to have his beautiful body both viewed and enjoyed. His exhibitionism however comes with risks, hence the mask and secret identiy.
Is he a famous actor, singer or reality celerity? Is he a politician or government worker? Is he a criminal, maybe hiding from the law or someone else? Does he have a wife, girlfriend, husband or boss who would look kindly or support his naked flesh captured so erotically and shared with the world? I can't share much more other than his name may offer the smallest of clues... If you ever find yourself flying to or from England's Gatwick International Airport, you may or may not be close to our International man of mystery. Be sure to check the cockpit...

For many years, I used Youtube to upload videos for FH. This week, thanks to the video of Alain Patrick in Blue Money (Original post HERE:), my account was suspended, permanently. Despite a challenge, they are sticking to their guns and keeping me off the site.
I don't argue there is nudity in the video, but not sure what exactly the site was bothered about, the tan lines maybe? The video is tame, just a male butt and I have had many videos with frontals which didn't appear to have any problems. I am not going to sweat it, they have their rules, I don't think I really crossed them, but I did walk the line. I wanted to post however as some readers may find many videos missing within posts. I am going to slowly start to embed them right in the posts, but it may take awhile, some I saved, many I did not, so be patient if you stumble upon any that don't work.
When FH began, I first listed all the contributors on the side of the site. At the time, I never imagined I would still be working on the FH ten years later and collaborated on stories with hundreds of photographers. I changed my link category title to 'recent contributes' and started Artist's Who Inspire to ensure all of the artists who have appeared on the site were credited. Below is an update featuring the many artists and photographers who have so generously supported FH over the last decade plus.
