Gentleman Handling

Here’s a new, very beautiful and very sexy website that I’m incredibly excited to tell you about! It’s the first commercial venture from Sensate Films, a new erotica production company which has been put together by two incredible ladies who I am privileged to be friends with, Aven Frey and Gala Vanting.

The website is gentlemanhandling.com

“What we’ve made here, really, is a lovely place to watch moving images of male masturbation. GentlemanHandling attempts to strip the image of male sexual pleasure from its less-than-savoury pornographic contexts and situate it in a style of imagemaking that is honest, attentive, and reverent. In our years of experience in the pornosphere, we’ve found that men have just as much to lose as other genders from the dishonesty and superficiality of mass-produced sexual imagery. So we’ve taken up the project of presenting our contributors in a manner that highlights their human-ness, their individual sexual style. Self-pleasure is a deeply personal thing and is often glossed over or neglected in mainstream sexual media. We’re trying to take steps to change that.” ~ http://gentlemanhandling.com/public/main.php?page=about

As someone who has seen many of the films produced for the website (fuck yeah sneak previews!), I can say in all honestly that they are beautifully filmed, sensitively edited,  incredibly gorgeous, raw, powerful and most importantly, intensely sexy. Gala and Aven also have a talent for finding immensely attractive but diverse men who all have a real presence in front of the camera and seem really comfortable in their skin and sexuality.

I truly believe that this project is onto a very, very good thing. Watching these beautiful men indulging in self pleasure, seeing their face as they get lost in their own senses… well, for me it was as good as looking at a beautiful painting – a beautiful painting that made me need to take a cold shower afterwards. There were moments during some of the films when I gasped, there were moments when I felt my face getting hot, there were moments when I even felt a little sad because male sexuality is every bit as rich, varied, beautiful and sexy as its female equivalent but it has been neglected for so long, considered crude, ugly, base.

Gentleman Handling gives male sexuality the attention and respect it deserves. So fuck yeah to that!

Go check the website out, watch the preview video I posted at the top of this entry, subscribe if you want to see beautiful men masturbate and spread the word if you want to support new, ground-breaking, beautiful and ethical porn. Seriously, they only just released the website so you get to say “Oh yeah, I knew about that before it was famous!”

Just playing around with more comic book character designs and colouring styles. There’s a few things about this picture that annoy me (including her confusing sex toy – what is it exactly?!) but I’m sick of it so… meh. I like the colours, they make my eyeballs vibrate. Also, I’m no longer hosting my pictures on WordPress as the ones I posted earlier have been compressed horribly.

Fatty Delicious – April Flores

No this blog hasn’t died. I’ve simply been busy preparing for a month long holiday in Japan. I leave with my partner at 6AM tomorrow and we shan’t return until June the 6th! Mwahaha! I hope to return with a tentacle monster to call my very own! Failing that, a gothic lolita costume to roam the streets of Melbourne in, and perhaps a Hello Kitty vibrator – just for good measure.

I promise some chunky, textural, rich and buttery posts upon my return. But in the meantime, I wanted to talk about someone I’ve only recently became aware of and who I instantly fell in love and lust with. Her name is April Flores and her website is Fatty Delicious.

The delicious April Flores from Bizarre Magazine shoot found here.

Now there’s a part of me (the part that read Female Chauvinist Pigs and that reacts to raunch culture with “Uh oh! This is problematic!” type alarm bells) that wants to talk about the complex and tricky topic of objectification. However, another part of me is thinking “Fuck problematic! She is sexy and inspiring!” so rather than have a whinge, I want to talk about why I love April Flores right now.

In a world where ideals of beauty tend to be limited and rigid, Flores is a reminder that sexy can come in many different packages and can ultimately be self defined. I also admit that I’m rather drawn to her pin-up look, her wonderfully red hair and her in-your-face sexuality. Recently I learned a new word, “superstimulus” and that came to mind when I saw photos of her.

Flores recently won the Feminist Porn Awards 2010 “Heartthrob of the Year” award. As they said “April Flores does not apologize for her sex appeal, and makes it safer for everyone to embrace their own sexiness.” I can’t help but agree! Rock on, gorgeous lady!
