Welcome to mitchmen gateway

Welcome to mitchmen.com, home of Mitchell's Gay Art.

This is my permanent gateway site.
I usually post here once a month, art and photos in praise of male beauty, strictly vanilla.
There's a link in the sidebar to a small public gallery of vanilla drawings by me (gallery last updated Feb 2019).
If you have problems with the link please read this notice.

You can find my more intense and frank work via my regular 'mitchmen' blog
(where I show my own pictures mixed with articles on other gay artists and images that excite me).

There's a 'Gallery Hub' tab at that blog which has onward links to:-
- All the official mitchmen galleries,
- The mitchmen mailing list (for the latest pictures and stories)
- The permanent mitchmen archive at Adonis Male.

I welcome comments from visitors but please avoid adult references,
I can't approve remarks which are not consistent with the vanilla format of this site
and unfortunately I can't edit your contributions!

Thank you for your interest and support.
Mitchell (Jan 2024).

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
