Purchase this set of giclee prints:


With my Cheesecake Boys series, I’m mostly looking for creative, humorous ways to get a boy out of his pants. It’s not much deeper than that! They are reminiscent of the pin-up girls popularized in the 40’s and 50’s with overtly contrived scenarios putting them in imminent danger of having their underwear (or more) exposed. There’s a slightly innocent suggestiveness to the works from this time period which I am really drawn to and want to interpret from a gay male perspective.

This listing is for the purchase of six limited-edition giclee prints, "Decent Exposure," "Room With a View," "A Fitting Surprise," "Rear View," "The Elevator Incident," and "Dog Days" for a 15% savings from their list prices. However, if you are only interested in one, I've included links below to their individual Etsy pages too.

About the artwork:

Maintaining the trademark Cheesecake clean-cut look is a round-the-clock job. Struggling to keep from exposing himself is another. In this intimate piece, we find our Cheesecake Boy doing both. At home in his bathroom mid-shave, fully covered in a soft, luxurious towel, this singular article of modesty suddenly gives rise to another revelation. We all know that fate often leaves a Cheesecake Boy accidentally clad in little more than his skimpy undies, but this piece captures our young hero wearing even less!

In "Room With a View," it's another day on the job for our Carpenter Cheesecake Boy, whose steadfast work ethic and sharp focus on the task at hand are reason enough to hire him for your next home improvement project. But this handyman also has a body to die for, or at least justify staying home from work to serve him lemonade and check out his "progress." And if you catch him at just the right moment, the combination of loose jeans and heavy tool belt might just result in a little display of southern exposure Cheesecake-style, and we're not talking about windows here. Leave it to a Cheesecake Boy to give you an extremely sexy home makeover you won't soon forget!

A seemingly innocent mid-afternoon shopping excursion gives way to a revealing Cheesecake moment in "A Fitting Surprise." As our young hero disrobes with only his ankles visible to passersby behind the fitting room curtain, another lucky shopper carelessly enters the scene. Pulling back the curtain to try on a pair of half-priced trousers, he discovers the room's occupant clad in only his skimpy skivvies and a smile. Always poised, our Cheesecake Boy seems only mildly startled by his "accidental" exposure, and the auspicious shopper responsible for uncovering the scene appears in no great hurry to pull the curtain on his half-naked discovery. The lure of the bargain brought them together, but "1/2 off pants" takes on a whole new meaning in this sizzling encounter!

"Rear View" depicts a hot afternoon, comfy shorts, and a classic car – all the makings of the good-ol’ American dream for our Cheesecake Boy. But through a twist of fate, or luck depending on your perspective, the dream turns to fantasy as his shorts snag on the license plate giving onlookers a more revealing look under the hood than we may have anticipated! Perhaps it was the hot weather, a penchant for the open-ended, or a slight twist of kinkiness beneath the clean-cut façade that led to his choice in wearing a jock-strap on that day of all days, but no one’s complaining! Just before the Cheesecake Boy regains his aplomb (and his pants), the moment is perfectly memorialized in all its racy glory.

In "The Elevator Incident," a young Cheesecake professional on his way up the corporate ladder, or elevator as it were, prepares for another day of organizing, multi-tasking, and high-risk decision making. Dressed to the nines, our hero can lead a staff meeting, wow clients and crunch numbers all without messing up his trademark coif. Why, then, is he breaking a sweat this morning? Well, his training may have prepared him for a challenging profit loss, but certainly not the loss of his designer duds to the elevator door! Gather ‘round, office workers! Our Cheesecake Boy has himself in quite a predicament. As buttons pop and papers scatter, the distressed young executive exposes a new side of himself, one that is sure to make idle chat around the water cooler a lot hotter!

Thanks to the K9 appeal of our latest Cheesecake Boy’s jeans in "Dog Days," puppy-initiated depantsings are no longer reserved for just sunscreen bottles. In a delightful, mid-afternoon backyard setting, man’s best friend unleashes a revelatory inspection of his owner’s unmentionables. And of course this brief exposure occurs in open view of lucky neighbors and passersby. A Cheesecake Boy, always suave and collected, must face these daily hindrances to staying dressed with trademark composure. So even with a dog on a mission and trousers around his knees, our boy doesn’t fret. He knows he’s got what it takes, despite the curious puppy trying to strip it away. Confidence intact even if his pants aren’t, our Cheesecake Boy reminds us all that life’s difficult moments are like dirt stains and dog slobber – they all come out in the wash.

Pffffft I love this. :love:

This is almost exactly like the pinups women did in the 40's and 50's, right down to the cheesy expressions and ridiculous situations made so viewers could see the person half naked ("My dog bit and pulled at my blouse strong enough to expose my bra! Some nice old man is using his cane to lift my skirt and get a better view of my panties!")

I'd say these are pretty revolutionary, ALWAYS have heard of female pin-ups, but no male pin-ups. Kudos to you for having the guts to do these! <3

DA needs more male pin ups. Fan yaoi pairings just aren't the same.
