Matt Dunk: Australian Women's Forum

'It was the best job in publishing at the time'
Helen Vnuk, Editor

Matt Dunk
Man of the Year
Australian Women's Forum

Australia's version of Playgirl magazine was promoted as a magazine for women who were unashamed about liking sex and loving men.  Launched in the early 90's, Australian Women's Forum (AWF) lasted close to ten years, folding in 2001.

AWF was known for it's regular sections included Studly, featuring real guys who sent their naked pics in, and Sex School, where real couples demonstrated sex positions. The erotic fiction section was called Wet Spot and a monthly feature called Body Talk showed real couples, photographed naked, talking about their bodies.

The focus of the magazine of course were the pictorials of naked men, one of my favorites, the delicious Matt Dunk.  That body, those bangs, and Matt's beautifully long thin penis made for a visually spectacular package.  It is not a surprise Matt was one of the magazine's most popular models, and winner of one the Man of the Year titles.

If some of you recognize Matt, it may be because he also appeared in Playgirl Magazine back in 2003 Matt's layout was shot by Australian photographer Paul Freeman.  Although the bangs were sadly cut, the images were still amazing.  If you want to check out more of Matt, and his August 2003 Playgirl appearance, check out THE OVER-FLOW HERE:

Saddle Up

'Can an old-fashioned cowboy and a young man on the run from his dark past find a future together? Herschel is a simple rancher who believes everybody deserves a second chance, which is why he tends to hire underdogs—like Dalton, a young cowboy who needs all the support and TLC Herschel can offer.'

Sometimes, when I'm struggling to find the right title for a post, I go on Amazon, or GoodReads and do a book title search. When putting together Lancaster County by NMS, I was on the hunt for several titles for different posts. Just as I discovered with my 'Alien' post a couple of weeks ago, I discovered cowboy romance novels, gay cowboys in particular, were incredibly popular.

My love of the male form in images isn't restricted to only photographs, I love great art, regardless of the medium.  I have always loved book covers, I went through most of my early school years without the internet, but a great book cover could stimulate and trigger my imagination for hours.  I remember sitting down to read many of my assigned English novels, only to get lost in the cover before reading even a single word.

Since beginning FH, every few months or so, I feature a cowboy.  Well.. not always actual cowboys,  maybe just a hot model shot in a barn in assless chaps.  The western theme, and especially the cowboy, has been one of the many recurring symbols of masculinity that artists are inspired by.

Cowboys have all the classic themes needed for a lusty fantasy.  Hard work, long days sweating under the hot sun.  Even longer nights  in a cold bunk house, surrounded by only other horny ranch hands.  Loneliness, isolation, not to mention all that denim and leather combine for one hell of a ride.
