PIX is my new short film and it is inspired by online Gay dating. PIX is a series of flickering images (faceless-selfies) of 2500 gay men building a three minutes animation portraying what is happening in the “marketplace of desire”. Thousands of male bodies in typical male poses are put together creating the mosaic of one body.
You can watch the trailer on my website.
The full-length film is also available after a contribution of 1$. Every contribution helps me to keep on producing my self-funded films that aim to be artistic as well as sexually explicit.
PIX contains sexually explicit content. Make sure you are over 18 years old before clicking to the site.
PIX goes beyond the casual hook up. For some our online profiles and exposed body feed our narcissistic and exhibitionistic side, while for others is an endless voyeuristic hunt.
TASCHEN: Every harrowing day for a serviceman during World War II was potentially his last. To help bolster troops against the horrors of combat, commanders encouraged them to form tight “buddy” relationships for emotional support. Many war buddies, together every moment, and depending on each other to survive, formed intimate friendships. When they weren’t fighting side by side, they relaxed together, discharging tension in boisterous—sometimes naked—play. The full extent of nude horseplay among men during World War II can’t be known, as cameras were rare and film hard to process, but some men did document this unprecedented male bonding in small, anonymous photos mostly kept hidden away until their deaths.
Los Angeles photographer Michael Stokes has spent years searching out these photos and building an archive of over 500 images. His collection includes soldiers and sailors from Australia, England, France, Italy, Poland, Russia, and the USA, cavorting on the sand in the South Pacific, shivering in the snow of Eastern Europe, posing solo in the barracks, and in great happy groups just about everywhere. These images show men barely out of boyhood, at their physical peak, responding to the reality of battle by living each day to the fullest—a side of the war never before made public.
The introduction is by Scotty Bowers, an 89-year-old ex-Marine and author of Full Service, the best-selling memoir of his sexual exploits in Hollywood, and how the war forever altered his attitudes about gay and straight, just as these photos may alter our attitudes about World War II and war buddies.
Charles Leslie’s SoHo Loft May House The Biggest Collection Of Homoerotic Art In New York (via BUZZFEED)Posted by SGT. COACH on Thursday Mar 27, 2014 Under ART CLASS
BUZZFEED: Walking into Charles Leslie’s SoHo loft is like entering the calm eye of a cock storm, a whirling phallic dervish spanning continents and centuries. Leslie began collecting gay art while stationed in Heidelberg during the Korean War, and continued afterward while attending the Sorbonne on the GI Bill. And over the course of his design career, Lohman had also gathered a small handful of such works. In fact, their shared passion for homoerotic art was one of the things that drew the two together.

NEW NOW NEXT: With films like Blue is the Warmest Color and Nymphomania getting critical acclaim, the lines between porn and mainstream film continue to blur. Now Travis Mathews, who brought us the explicit I Want Your Love and co-directed Interior. Leather. Bar with James Franco, presents another transgressive film, In Their Room: Berlin.
Part of an international series, Berlin is a quasi-documentary, tracing the romantic and sexual lives of gay men in the German capital. “This is an incredible series,” says producer Jack Shamama. “The Berlin installment was shot while Travis was on tour with I Want Your Love, but hasn’t been seen much outside of Germany. For fans of Mathew’s it’s a chance to see something new. But we’re also hoping that it helps introduce him to a new audience.”
The film is being released by Naked Sword, the adult-film company that has branched out into more artistic fare with I Want Your Love. It’ll be available for be free through March 31 on IWantYourLoveTheMovie.com, and then on the members’ section of NakedSword.com (NSFW)
“Ironically, I think it took a porn company to show that an artistically honest film could use sex in a way that wasn’t exploitative or gratuitous,” says Naked Sword CEO Tim Valenti. “You see it all over gay media now, from Blue Is the Warmest Color to Looking. Travis’s follow up film Interior. Leather Bar went to Sundance, got mainstream distribution, and a glowing New York Times review. It’s funny to think that I Want Your Love got banned when we were showing it at festivals just last year.”
VICE: For the video for the single “Dirty Boots,” the band Holopaw teamed up with Brooklyn-based filmmaker Adam Baran to make a beautifully shot short. The video features narration by legendary and semi-reclusive 70s gay porn star Peter Berlin (Nights in Black Leather, That Boy), and it stars Dominic J. Fournier (pictured), the man behind the many penis and butthole pictures on the ABeardedBoy Tumblr page.
