Calendar Dieux Du Stade 2012: Nude Athletes for a Cause

Originally created in support of charity, the popularity of the Dieux Du Stade Calendars has been credited for the increased fame of the Stade Français rugby team, as well as for rugby in general, in France. During the calendar’s 10 years, the basic concept hasn’t changed: the calendar features nude and semi-nude photographs of members of Stade Français, the Paris-based domestic French rugby team, and in more recent years, it includes players from other rugby union clubs. Photographed by Francois Rousseau, in his 3rd collaboration with Dieux Du Stade, the theme for 2012 tells the story of “survivors of a lost world, trying to get on board a ship.”

The Very Sexy Brothers of Arcadia

The Very Sexy Brothers of Arcadia

Brothers of Arcadia is an amazingly erotic four-minute short fashion film for Thierry Mugler, which was directed by Branislav Jankic. The film features a number of mostly-naked men with stunning physiques to grab your attention. It starts off slowly with a dramatic, black and white beachside romp set to classical music, with the leading men wearing nothing but briefs and some bling. However, the mood quickly changes when vibrant colors emerge, as well as a bumping techno jam by Jessica 6. Viewers  are transported into a steamy underground photo-shoot that seems to have a Greek gods and soldiers theme, which is appropriate because these dudes are, like, chiseled from marble.

That Sticky Candy: Subverting Conventional Stereotypes of Gay Identity

Figurative Art by:  Scott Hunt, NYC

That Sticky Candy is a series of figurative art pieces by Scott Hunt, an artist whose work has been exhibited internationally and whose art is part of the permanent collection of the Israel Museum, Jerusalem.  These charcoal and pastel drawings take their inspiration from 1940s and 50s photography; they present and subvert conventional perceptions of gay identity.  Hunt tackles the theme of homosexuality without the demure or closeted strategies often associated with gay subject matter in art.  In doing so, one discovers that his direct approach to homosexuality and gay male sexuality in visual art is, in a way, surreal as well.

For Hunt, the title of this series refers to a metaphor that speaks about how something that one might crave and be pleasured by can become messy and constricting.  In particular, gay men have been yoked to the  idea that they are hypersexual beings, and in this work Hunt attempts to point out how limiting that is, that a gay identity is infinitely more complex and broad than that.
