Naughty and nice

Presenting a naked male body used to be a rather taboo spectacle, unless...
well, unless you placed a classical element beside it, i.e. a column, thus creating the perfect alibi. 

No one can criticise male beauty when you present it that way. 

This used to be one of the commonest ways for Gay magazines to portray their naked models. I think it makes for one of the most interesting ways of Consuming Greek Antiquity we've seen so far in the blog.

You may read a very interesting article and browse through the whole gallery HERE

One can even entirely omit the classical background by just calling the naked men on explicit images "The Greek Statues".

True. Great find by the way ;)
