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.

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.

In-Their-Room-Berlin

IN THEIR ROOM BERLIN sample from Travis Mathews on Vimeo.

Sample of the film above. Want to watch the FULL film? Watch it HERE for Free thru March 31st

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.

Screen Shot 2014-03-20 at 1.17.31 PM

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.”

Screen Shot 2014-03-20 at 1.17.10 PM

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.”

o-KING-900

HUFFPOST GAY: A new exhibit at Leslie-Lohman, organized by Richards, is bringing together over 80 original illustrations plucked form the pages of retro magazines spanning the 1950s to the 1990s. Showcasing everything from tame images of the male body as muse to explicitly sexualized scenes, the exhibit surveys decades worth of design created by gay artists in the late 20th century, exploring a space — magazines — where art flourished in the past.

o-MCMULL-900

Titled “Stroke: From Under the Mattress to the Museum Wall,” the journey through erotic history outlines the evolution of the (naked) male in art, spotlighting the impact of the “sexual revolution” and the Stonewall Inn riots on the demand for the magazines playing home to Mizer and company’s works. Torso, Mandate, InTouch — they would grow to attract the work of major artists like Mel Odom, Richard Rosenfeld and more, many of whom contributed to mainstream publications like Vogue and Playboy.
