Favorite Import of the Day: Marc Porel

In 1976's L'innocente (The Innocent), Swiss born French actor Marc Porel plays Filippo, the hot hunk the lead's wife has an affair with.  It was a clip from The Innocent, that first had me looking for more on the incredibly hot Porel. 

Porel was a sensation in France and over the course of his professional career, between 1967 and 1983, Porel appeared in over 40 films. Porel didn't seem to shy away from his good looks and sex symbol image, and appeared nude on screen several times.  I've found another Porel film and nude scene that I'll post about soon.

I found the nude scene in The Innocent incredibly erotic, not only because Porel went full frontal, but because of the voyeuristic, and sinister nature of the scene.  While Porel's Filippo is showering, he notices he's being stared down by Tullio. (Giancarlo Giannini)  Is Tullio lusting after the wet naked man, or scoping out the competition  Either way, it's very very hot! 

The Innocent (1976)

'Tullio Hermil is a chauvinist aristocrat who flaunts his mistress to his wife, but when he believes she has been unfaithful he becomes enamored of her again.'

Shiny New Things: Luky by Bodytorium

'Luky's filled with positive energy, he's adventurous and he gets excited about trying new things'

If you're a regular viewer of FH, I'm sure that you're very familiar with the work of photographer Phil Dlab from Bodytorium.  Although Phil shoots a variety of different men, his focus is frequently on models on the verge.  Guys who are in the process of transitioning into adulthood, still with the youthfulness, energy and bodies of young men before time, and life, begin to impact body and soul.

I can't think of a better example of Phil's focus than this series of shots of Luky. (Lukas).  The 18 year student is turning the corner this year, graduating from high school, and heading out into the world.  It's a time of huge change, physical ones of course, but also a change in direction.  When we're school, the the focus is narrow, the main goal is making it through to graduation.

Luky's life in Slovakia mostly revolved around studying, and as goalkeeper for the floorball team he plays for.  Modeling naked wasn't necessarily in Luky's long term plan, that was until, he connected with Phil.  During the pandemic, most of us found ourselves at home more, and consequently, on-line more as well. 

Phil usually meets his models in person.  If you've read my previous posts featuring his work, Phil often finds new models through his friends, while out on the town or at social engagements.  Given people weren't getting that often, especially in large groups, it was much hard for Phil to connect with new subjects to shoot.  Although he's not really into social media, and much prefers in-person contact, when the pandemic began, Phil dove in and did what he had to do to connect with perspective new models.

'Conditions often aren't ideal and sometimes to move ahead you've just got to bite the bullet. So I've been scouring Instagram and every so often I find gold. '

When Phil first connected with Luky on-line, he found the 18 year old very friendly and open to shooting right from the onset.  Luky was also up for trying new things, and a nude photo shoot was both new, and a challenge he was more than up for. It didn't take much writing back and forth before Phil and Luky were talking on the phone, getting to know one another, and discussing what each might be looking for and expecting from a future photo shoot together.

'Even though Slovakia is a small country and you can practically drive from one end to the other in 6 hours, I don't always have the luxury to meet all potential models in person prior to a photoshoot. Coincidentally Luky had a floorball game in Bratislava, so we were able to meet in person on the following weekend.'

Upon first meeting, Phil felt an instant good vibe from Luky. . He was wearing a hat and Phil thought had him looking like a cute skater boy. Phil asked him if he could see how he looked with his hat off, and when Luky took off his hat, Phil felt like he was watching a scene from a movie in slow motion.  As his hair flowed down, Phil could only think how drop-dead gorgeous he looked..

The began their shoot by driving to one of  Phil's favorite spots in the country.  The location had a good assortment of hills, valleys, meadows and tree's that  Phil loves to use as natural obstacles for models to sit, lie, crawl and climb on.  It also had a lot of space for Luky to run around around in.  Often locations, even outside, can be limiting, and Phil wanted dynamic shots of Luky.  With Luky's energy, Phil wanted lots of movements, beyond Luky just walking or standing around.

'Luky has a very healthy and positive attitude towards nudity. It was one of the most comfortable and fun photoshoots I've experienced so far.'

In addition to being a natural in front of the camera, Luky was both pleasant, and incredibly charming.  After the shoot, they headed back to Phi's place in Bratislava, ordered pizza and continued the studio / indoor portion of the photoshoot.  You can check out 100's of additional shots of Luky from both their outdoor, and studio shoots in a series of three updates on Bodytorium HERE:

Favorite Pic of the Day for January 28th

~Check out today's BIRTHDAYS HERE:~


Halvor Egner Granerud: Frosted Tip

Norwegian ski jumper Halvor Egner Granerud recently took to the slopes wearing nothing but his helmet, gloves and ski boots.  As cold as it was on the hill, the Oslo native looked hot flying through the air naked.  

Halvor's cameraman certainly had the one of the best angles.  Thanks to DC poster carambol22 for sharing the video and thanks to whomever edited the video for doing such a poor job with their blurring, especially at the beginning...

Missionary Schooled: Scott by Photos by BIRON

'Whenever there is no full frontal it is never my decision, but the model’s. So one can say in Scott's case that he was not entirely comfortable with nudity.'

Although full frontal shots are always welcome on FH, I never pass up the opportunity to featured great images, especially of hot models with an interesting story.  Scott's journey to disrobing for his shoot with Photos by BIRON was both a stressful, and an especially spiritual one. 

Scott had no intention to model, especially without his clothes, in fact the career he was seeking was one that would have him fully draped from head to toe.  Scott was studying at a Bible college, studying to one day take over for his father as Pastor at their local home town church.  Opportunities however, sometimes occur int he most unlikely of places.

During his last year in missionary school, Scott and his classmates were all required to set up appointments with a local photographer to have their graduation pictures down.  Well... given it was a small town, the local photographer not only shot soon to be Pastors, he also shot wannabe models for catalogue and community flyers.  When Scott arrived for his grad pic, the photographer instantly knew he wanted to shoot Scott both in, and out of his clergy robe.

As he shot Scott's graduation pics, he asked the hot blonde a series of questions to get a feel for whether he'd be open to do some other types of modeling.  Scott was immediately intrigued, not so much by the modeling, but the prospect of making some decent money to help with his student loans.  The photographer set up a time to shoot a series of shots for Scott to put together a small portfolio to submit to the modeling agency the photographer also worked for.

It was through this agency that Biron spotted Scott's shots.  Biron loved Scott's look, and felt a retro vibe from the images he saw. Scott's look reminded Biron of the models he so enjoyed from the classic nude photography images he enjoyed from the 40's and 50's.  Scott looked like he walked out of an Athletic Model Guild physique catalogue with his blonde hair, facial structure and fit, but not overly bulked up body.

When Biron got in touch with Scott about a shoot, he wasn't sure the Bible School student would be up for nude shoot with a theme and poses saluting classic physique models.  He was pleasantly surprised that Scott wasn't only interested, but eager and full of ideas for the shoot.  This particular pastoral student had a bit of a wild side, and was looking forward to showing sides of himself he usually had to keep under wrap. 

The shoot ended up being a freeing and cathartic experience for Scott.  Except for no full frontal shots, he was open to exploring both his sexual side, and his sexual fantasy's, chains and clothes pins included!   Although Biron thought Scott was actually really wanting to show the full Monty, he wasn't sure future congregations would be that thrilled to with seeing their pastor's penis on the Internet.  I'm not so sure... many church goers as we all well know, have wild sides they to keep under wraps for an hour each Sunday.  Biron shares that Scott is indeed now behind the pulpit each Sunday morning. In order to ensure the pews don't get too crowded, especially during this time of Covid, for now, the particular Parish will remain a mystery....
