Without a single word BEACH 19 manages to say through images what happens in Portugal’s most famous gay beach. Just twenty minutes outside Lisbon it is widely known for its gay cruising action. Facing the Atlantic Ocean BEACH 19 is a paradise for nudists. For many gay tourists seeking relaxation this is the ultimate place for sea, sun and sex. The camera captures the scenery and the hook-ups leaving you with a wonderful after taste of a hot, HOT Summer.
Antonio Da Silva’s NUDE DUDESis about my experience during my visit in Tel Aviv. I was hosted by Matan and Menache, two young guys who practice nudism in their own house. While being flatmates they openly expose their sexual interests to each other and their guests. Managing their online dating profiles is a part of their daily routine. I was intrigued by their non-tabooed dynamic. They brought me to the nudists beach where to my delight I saw a similar openness from the crowd.
Away from the open Mediterranean waters, an unforgettable experience was swimming in the Dead Sea with two guys I had met at the festival I was attending at the time. Connection, freedom, sex, elevated senses and feelings, ejaculating life in those dead waters. Its unique composition transported all three of us to another stimulating dimension.
After all, no matter the conflicts in the area I felt connected and open for a better well being like the locals do…
THE GAILY GRIND: Award winning performance artist Brent Ray Fraser has become a staple in Vancouver who entertains crowds by painting portraits in the nude, using his penis as a paint brush. Fraser recently unleashed his penis painting skills at the Taboo Sex Show in Vancouver.
He also recently did a performance piece in Vancouver (above). On his website you can buy his penis paintings, anus hairs, sweaty jocks and explicit videos (previews after the jump).
Thirty-five Portuguese dancers undress in front of the camera. They become the object of desire with a sensual provocative performance. Eclectic dance disciplines help this film to explore an exhibitionist view of the male nude. This is a statement about the current financial situation in Portugal and the lack of fundings to support artistic initiatives. All contributions from this film will be given to the participants of DANCERS film, to encourage and inspire them, for them to give you one more private dance! These artists are not afraid to challenge the general thinking about male nudity and they showcase the potential of creative Portuguese performance arts.
After all, the penis also can dance!

INFO TO WATCH THE FULL FILM HERE ($6 fee)
PIX is my new short film and it is inspired by online Gay dating. PIX is a series of flickering images (faceless-selfies) of 2500 gay men building a three minutes animation portraying what is happening in the “marketplace of desire”. Thousands of male bodies in typical male poses are put together creating the mosaic of one body.
You can watch the trailer on my website.
The full-length film is also available after a contribution of 1$. 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.
