A couple of ‘now’ and ‘then’ images selected for me by my chum Steve Zeeland from Miss Magnolia Thunderpussy’s veritable treasure trove of photo archives of the male form, which includes all kinds images of fleeting, winsome, youthful masculine beauty from the last hundred years – now looked at with very knowing eyes.

Steve chose these two images because they depict our loss of innocence – and perhaps what you could get away with when we were officially innocent. And because they’re cute.

They don’t really need captions, but I’m afraid couldn’t help myself (you need to mouseover to see them).

"Hey Guys! Look! That funny soap you gave me makes great shampoo!"

I love these kind of shower units. Which is probably exactly why you don’t see them any more….
