Welcome to mitchmen blog

Welcome to mitchmen, home of Mitchell's Gay Art.
(with no connection to Michael Mitchell!)

This is my gateway site. I only post occasionally here, usually pictures in praise of male beauty, strictly vanilla,
but in the sidebar you can connect to my two more adventurous posting sites
- my blog (where I show some of my pictures and pay tribute to artists and images that excite me)
- my Yahoo! Group (where you can see my latest pictures and stories and join my mailing list).

There's also a link in the sidebar here to a small gallery of vanilla drawings by me (Mitchell) (gallery last updated Feb 2019).
If you have problems with the link please read this notice.

I welcome comments from visitors but please avoid adult references, I can't approve remarks which are not consistent with the vanilla content of this site!

Thank you for your interest and support.
Mitchell (July 2019).

Modern G-string

Loving the freedom
In the 1950's and 60's the G-string was standard attire for beefcake models but it fell out of favour with the relaxation of nudity laws and, for many admirers of the male form, it's incongruity as a garment became a source of retrospective ridicule rather than admiration (see my vintage series at the other mitchmen blog). This gent's little, black number shows that the G-string is alive and well in the 21st century.

This is modern fashion wear by Joe Snyder (from 2014), but it's obvious unsuitability for the woodland ramble suggested in the pictures (or indeed for underwear in general) rekindles the sense of incongruity and gives us a glimpse of the thrill that the relatively sex-starved gays of old must have felt seeing pictures of skimpy garments like these being worn by hunky men out in the open. Just imagine a game-keeper or hunter stumbling on this trophy game! Christmas present problem solved!

OMG someone's coming! Cover up!
 The olden day G-strings had an elastic waistband threaded through the top hem, which tended to produce a pouched, rounded, 'bag of sweets' effect. Snyder's modern version has side strings attached just at the corners which results in a flatter, more triangular shape with a lower waist-line (and some interesting radiating creases). The restrained (!) contours match the luscious muscularity of this model rather well and the shiny black colour tones nicely with his skin and injects a little suggestion of earthiness.

The 'little boy lost' model is Juan Salazar
