I loved the "Persian Boy" book too :D as well as the Storm Constantine Wraeththu books of course. After looking at this picture for a while I saw someone scary approach in the background!

Thanx!
You are attentive to detail ^^ Although I don't know if it should be scary... Maybe it's a lover ;)

I was thinking of Bagoas when we made this, so he could very well be, I guess.
So... how is life in harems these days?

I like the fantasy/sexy stuff with boys. For once it's not women who get objectified.

I don't do much painting lately... I would like to have a photoshoot like that, but I'm a bit short on models these days

Here's a good video with a smart person talking about objectifying and many other interesting things: [link]

Yemen, for real?

Are you sure you want him? Cause he's got a beard now :mwahaha:
kofiadu's avatar
we not grow beards

it is one reason why they do it
JSVB's avatar
I'd have to see the beard. If it's a goatee, then yes.

Otherwise, well, I WOULD OWN HIM AND THEREFORE IT WOULD BE MY RIGHT TO SHAVE HIM. XD XD XD

You'd have a lot of work. Southern Europe men, you know, body hair and stuff. By the time you're done with the second leg, it grows back on the first one LOL
Sort of a goatee, yeah. Browse around in my "Boys" folder in the Gallery, you can't miss him, he's the only guy there with long hair.
JSVB's avatar
So I see. The hair remains. SOLD!!!

XD

This reminds me of something Alexander the Great would have loved... which means it rocks hardcore. Very well composed and your husband (I think I was reading on another picture ^_^) is very beautiful.

Thank you very much! I am extremely happy about your comment, this means a lot to me. And yes, I was totally thinking of Alexander when I was making this!
