meat: Some Notes on Nudity

I get lots of messages and comments enquiring about or bemoaning the lack of full-frontal nudity in meat ICONS (and before that in meat). The truth is there's always been a healthy dose of dick and ass in the magazine, and plenty of guys have been brave enough to bare all for my camera. In fact, it's a rare occasion when they don't get naked.

I love getting to photograph guys in the buff. There's something incredibly vicariously liberating about it, as someone who hates being photographed even fully clothed. I can always tell when it's a feeling of liberation for them, too, especially if it's a new experience.

I think a naked guy, in all his confidence and vulnerability, is a heady combination. However, I'm equally turned on by the anticipation of what's in a guy's pants and the irresistible tease of photographing him in his duds.

In this age, when a dick pic is only a message away, and we have access to an unending supply of naked imagery online, I can't help but wonder if we're a bit desensitised to the other charms of our fellow gays. Call me old-fashioned, but I'd like to think that meat offers a glimpse into my subjects' minds as well as their pants.

And above all, in the spirit of P.T. Barnham, you should always leave them wanting more.
