What do you see in this picture?

When you look at this picture, what do you see?

I’ll tell you what I see in this picture, honest and directly:

-First of all, my bare buttocks

-Secondly, my thighs, though barely visible by my caressing of them

-My calves also show up too

If you think that this picture is about showing off my buttocks, then you’d be right, because the only point of this picture is to feature my booty, exposed by pose, slightly hairy (because I shaved some hair on there), and unavoidable to see in the pose.

I’m not afraid to showcase my butt. In fact, I’m very proud of it. Sure, the view of it bending over may not be the most flattering viewpoint, of it, but that’s just an unfortunate consequence. Bending over pushes my glutes, thighs, hamstrings and calves-all of which I work on through deliberate exercise-to their limits

Another pose that gets to the point of what I like about my back view:

I received (and deleted) a comment for this picture on my modelmayhem that read: BOHICA (bend over here it comes again). It was so sad to me that this picture, as much as I like it, came off as an invitation to get fucked in the ass, that I ended up removing the picture from my modelmayhem profile entirely. But I’m showing the picture again here because I like the way my backside is posed, but not because I’m making an invitation. Believe me that I’m straight enough to get 100% creeped out by any *invitation* for back door action, despite whatever people think the poses seem to invite.

I’ve debated posting this…

I’ve debated posting this because of the way it accentuates my belly… for it to work, I had to arch my back, which meant that my stomach got pushed out and looks more like the beer gut that I’m running away from than the washboard stomach I fantasize about once-again having.

And then again, that’s the point of life modeling, or at least why I’ve gotten into it. It’s not to show off the perfect body (that I’ve never had, by the way), but to prove that there’s excellence in vulnerability, that our flaws are what makes us both beautiful and unique.

Plus, despite how much I wish my stomach wasn’t pushed out, I think the picture itself is pretty incredible:

I originally wasn’t interested in this shot… the photographer had done it on another model and asked me if I’d shoot the pose for him… I had seen the image he was talking about on a model he’d shot only a few days prior,  but that model had a much more athletic physique than me… he was also nearly a foot taller than me, had what looked like a bullet proof stomach, and yes, his penis was large enough to tie in a knot, so needless to say, the pose was much more flattering to his previous model, but after some coaxing, I figured “why not”, and at least see what it looked like.

And I’m glad I did. And I’m glad I shared it.
