THE CHANGING FACE OF BEAUTY

It was the writer John Fowles who first drew my attention to the changing face of beauty. Published in 1969, “The French Lieutenant’s Woman”, is set in the late nineteenth century. In one of his many discourses, throughout the novel, John Fowles remarks on the face of Ernestina Freeman’s serving maid. I can’t remember the character’s name, but John Fowles remarks that the serving maid’s face, is not of the style of beauty appropriate to the time in which she is living. He gives an image to the reader, a face that would have been fashionable at the time he is writing; the late nineteen sixties. He likens the face to a popular film star of that time. I wonder whom he is talking about?




Samantha Eggar, pictured above perhaps? She coincidently starred in the 1965 film of John Fowles novel, “The Collector”. Or maybe The American Actress, Ali Macgraw. Both women were born in the same year, 1939, their styles differ completely, yet both are of that time frame.




Yes, beauty is subjective, in the eye of the beholder, but the essence of what is beauty changes.




Elizabeth Taylor in the 1958 film, “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof”.





Marilyn Monroe in the 1953 film “Niagara”





Grace Kelly, in the 1954 film “Rear Window”.


In just a decade, the face of beauty has changed.





Vivien Leigh as Scarlett O’ Hara, in the 1939 film “Gone With The Wind”.





Or the dancer and film star of the same era, Rita Hayworth.

The 1930’s brought “the Talkies” and gave us Marlene Dietrich and Greta Garbo







Then those faces of the 1920’s the “Silent picture” decade; Lillian Gish and Clara Bow.






But before the era of film we still have records of what was considered beautiful and the look that women would aspire to. Funny, I don’t consider any of these women beautiful -- but then I am viewing the images from a twenty first century perspective.

M. Christian's ManLove Collection From Sizzler Editions


(From M. Christian's Queer Imaginings)


I can never say it enough: Renaissance E Books/Sizzler Editions is the best: not only have they been fantastic in re-releasing my queer erotica - as well as lots of other fun books - but they just put up this great subsection on their site just for my gay erotic books...

AND speaking of which, not only have they just put out a new edition of Me2 (which I still deny writing) but coming very, very soon is a re-release of my Lambda finalist collection, Dirty Words - and here's a look at the fantastic new cover:


Lovely!

- Can Become A Floating Device

When you live in a country with long, cold winters and short summers, you do what you can do make the most out of the warm weather.
In Russia, they hold a racing event every August called the Bubble Baba Challenge, where hundreds of contestants ride inflatable sex dolls down the Vuoska river rapids. 
At least, they did: the event, which was supposed to celebrate its tenth anniversary this year, was shut down by authorities just days before.
The Bubble Baba Challenge began 2003 after the idea came to organizer Dmity Bulawinov and his buddies while drinking one night. Lamenting the failure of any women to show up to their party, the guys began discussing the practical uses of inflatable sex dolls when someone pointed out they would make an excellent flotation device.
Since then, the Bubble Baba Challenge (“baba” is a derogatory term for “woman” in Russian) has been held every year in the village of Losevo, about 110km from St. Petersburg. 
This year marks the tenth anniversary of the event and as such, organizers were preparing for what they were hoping would be their biggest showing yet after nearly 600 people participated in 2011.
However, just days before the event, local authorities demanded the event be called off for safety reasons, citing a rise in the water level of the river. 
Bulawinov and other organizers believe this isn’t the whole story: as in previous years, they have taken thorough measures to ensure participants practice safe sex doll riding. Instead, they suspect local authorities were under pressure by the federal government to stop the event for fear of instigating anti-Putin sentiment. 
Because nothing gets a group of dissenters rebelling like a river full of gaping-mouthed sex dolls. 
The organizers comment that while they regret the government’s decision and apologize to everyone who was looking forward to this year’s event. Luckily, they still plan on holding the race again next year, stating: “The Bubble Baba Challenge is immortal. It will not end here.”

[Insert Joke About 'Dick Head' Here]

A new species of fish with a penis on its head has been identified in the Mekong Delta in Vietnam, researchers said on Wednesday. 
Phallostethus cuulong is the newest member of the Phallostethidae family — small fish found in Southeast Asian waters that are distinguished primarily by the positioning of the male sexual organ.

Male phallostethids have a copulatory organ, termed the priapium, under the throat for holding or clasping onto females and fertilising their eggs internally, according to conservationists. 
“We have scientifically identified a new penis-head fish in Vietnam,” researcher Tran Dac Dinh from Can Tho University told AFP.
The fish was known to Vietnamese people in the Mekong Delta but had not been described scientifically before a team identified the species last year, he said.

Japanese Charity Breast-Squeeze!



A charity breast squeeze took place last weekend in Shinjuku, Tokyo as part of the “Erotica will Save the World” event.

Is this a typical reward for donating to charity in Japan? We go hands on… I mean… just read on for more details. 
“Erotica will Save the World” is a 24-hour live-streamed fundraising event that took place last Saturday and Sunday (August 25-26). Men and women (yes, that is right) came out to enjoy two days of erotically-charged festivities: Some of the areas had stalls selling goods and DVDs, other areas had fun events such as a “Masturbation Marathon.” We’ll leave the details of that that competition up to your imagination. 
The most popular attraction was the “Breast Fundraiser”, which encouraged people to donate to charity. How did it encourage them to do that? Well, if you donate some money you are allowed to squeeze the breasts of one of ten lovely adult video actresses (known as oppai momi in Japanese – yes, they have a phrase for it).

A Real Live Sleeping Beauty

Ukrainian Art Exhibit Offers Real-Life ‘Sleeping Beauty’ Fairy-Tale

 Naysayers who believe fairy-tale dreams don’t come true should take a look at a new art installation in the Ukraine that features sleeping beauties.

They should, however, think twice before actually entering the exhibit.  Any man who enters the exhibit and kisses one of the rotating sleeping beauties on the lips and sees her eyes open is required to marry her.
“Everybody, any viewer, will have to sign the contract, which says – this is very important, because nobody has to -  ‘if I kiss the beauty and she opens her eyes while being kissed, I marry her,’” Taras Polataiko, the Ukrainian-Canadian artist behind the exhibit, told the U.K.’s The Telegraph.
In the modern take on the classic fairy tale popularized by Disney, each “sleeping beauty” lies on an elevated bed in the exhibit, housed at the National Art Museum of Ukraine, in Kiev.  Five women have so far signed up to be beauties and will rotate “sleeping,” dressed in an all-white gown, in the museum for two hours at a time daily through the exhibit’s end Sept. 9.
Like their potential Prince Charmings, the beauties also had to sign contracts, putting in writing that, “If I open my eyes while being kissed, I agree to marry the kisser.”
Besides being willing to commit their lives, the men and women who participate also have to be older than 18 and, importantly, not married.
“I hope they [men] come, so it will be more interesting for the beauties,” Polataiko said. “But I really don’t know. It’s a really serious thing. It’s marriage.”
The exhibit opened Aug. 22 but, so far, has not resulted in a love match, contractual or otherwise.

The Facialist-Out Today!

My book, The Facialist, came out this morning. 150 pages available in paperback from Amazon or e-book from JMS Books and this week the e-books are a dollar off, from 4.99 to 3.99, 20 per cent off!

It’s New York City in the 1950’s when Timmy discovers his own sexuality. But he’s aroused by men and women, which confuses him. Then Timmy meets Dickie, who likes to take young men under his wing and teach them the arts of fellatio, and Dickie's current young protégé, Shelly.

But Dickie is abusive, much like the men who have used Timmy for their own sexual release since he was a child. His attraction turns to Shelly, but who wants nothing to do with him.

Timmy is also seduced by an older Polish woman, an acquaintance of his mother’s. Confused by his own desires, Timmy returns to his favorite activity -- cruising the pathways of Tompkins Square Park.

Will Timmy accept his sexuality without fear or shame? Or does he risk losing himself to his own hungry desires?

I Don't Wanna Know...

JAN VANDER LAENEN: THE CENTREFOLD




I am exceedingly jealous of Jan Vander Laenen. Not only does Jan speak better English than I do, he writes better English too. His prose, cool, and silky smooth, slides and slips over your skin. At another time, the silken threads catch, perhaps on a sore patch, or an old wound, and you flinch. Jan packs his prose with a poignant, emotional intensity, that isn’t at first obvious -- it is only after you have finished reading one of Jan’s tales that you realise that you have tears in your eyes. Or that your belly muscles are aching with the need to laugh out loud. Jan’s tales are strange, but they are slices of life. He tells me that stories from the newspapers stay with him -- often the seemingly ridiculous will grow into a tale. Jan’s tales are like compelling modern fables -- his characters are a variety of ordinary, working men. You may meet such a man in the pub, in a coffee shop, pass him by on the street and you would never guess his secret.

In the first tale, “The Centrefold”, the tale that gives the collection its name, Jan gives us a police officer, Officer Feyaerts who is caught in the act of theft -- and not just any theft, the theft of a Gay, porno magazine. Some weeks later, Jan tells us that he received a puzzling email from a man signing himself as Marcello. As Marcello’s story unfolds, it slowly dawns on the reader, that this could be Officer Feyaerts, the police officer embarrassed by his faux pas. The tale that Marcello tells is strange, and lends itself to a Freudian reading. Marcello writes that previously, he has spied on his son, watching him masturbate. Fathers and sons -- yes it is incestuous, Marcello realises it, yet he lingers and watches his son’s orgasm explode, with pride; “that I was the procreator of such beauty…” And then there is the ludicrous, clumsy theft of the porno mag. It is as if he were asking to be caught. Marcello’s wife thinks that he is going through a mid-life crisis. Perhaps he is -- he gazes on the seductive image of the centrefold, and then he meets Tito…

In “A Refuse Collector With A Porn Magazine, Jan ponders on the nature of sexual attraction. The attributes of the male body that he finds sexually attractive. He is obsessed by the male buttocks. The shape, the size, the texture and; “Ah, that buttock cleavage.” And Jan teaches me a new word. “Pygomaniac”. It’s the scientific term for someone obsessed by buttocks. The little tale is written in the first person. This makes it personal -- is Jan telling me about his own fetish -- or has he crafted a character; allowing the character to explore such a fetish; one who speaks from his own point of view? I just don’t know.
The tale of “The Fire at the Chelsea Hotel” tells of a love growing stale. Jan and his lover, the Italian, Giulio, have been together for fourteen years. As they make love, Jan fantasises about other men, perhaps an Arab Prince, or a “husky fire fighter, that would have put his life on the line to save a kitten from a sea of fire.” The two are in New York, drinking coffee in the Café Palermo, when Dino comes in, a man of compelling, exceptional beauty. A romantic figure, vivacious, virile; all eyes, including those of Jan and Guilio are on Dino. They guess at his occupation; a fire fighter, Jan suggests. Later, a brisk knock at the door of their hotel room; smoke seeps stealthily in, beneath the door…

Then there is “The Lost Pubic Hair”. Jan’s mellifluous voice drifts through time and space. He thinks of other locations that influence his memory patterns. He tells us that this is a true story; but is it? Jan bumps into a friend, Kathy. While they lunch together, Jan daydreams of days that take unexpected turns. He thinks about his colourful, cosmopolitan city of Brussels. Bright market flowers, juicy fruits of summer and crisp, green, yellow and red vegetables. A variety of nationalities living, working and above all, having sex together. He recalls a one time erotic encounter, then he remembers another. Each erotic encounter, is punctuated by the inevitable cigarette.

The stories in this collection from Jan Vander Laenen, are captivating. He writes refreshingly about sex and erotic encounters in a manner that is quite blasé. He savours bodily fluids, their taste, scent and texture, like a connoisseur of the finest wine. Are the tales true? Possibly. Or are they a clever blend of truth and lies? It doesn’t matter. Great writers alter our perspective, make us see things differently. Jan turns the everyday into an epic; the ordinary into something bizarre. There is merriment here too; Jan doesn’t take himself too seriously, neither should we.

A few people don’t like Jan Vander Laenen’s tales. Everyone is entitled to their opinion. Perhaps they are looking for a hidden joke against them, or even some sort of sinister resistance to the powerful status quo. It is not for me to tell those lofty idealists what they should, or should not read. But if we don’t challenge ourselves, open ourselves up to new ideas, we do not grow. It is a shame, I think, when people stifle their imagination and sense of fun, just to fit in to some idealistic ethos. Or perhaps those people had no sense of fun, or imagination to begin with.

Life is often farcical and Jan Vander Laenen celebrates life with an artist’s eye. This is a collection that will delight, entertain and amuse; the collection may also make you think about your own life. How different your day, even your life could have turned out, had you left home ten minutes earlier. Taken the bus instead of the train. A theme from that great film, “Siding Doors”. These are tales that will stay with you, long after you have read the final sentence.

English is not Jan’s first language. The tales were originally written in Dutch and then translated into English.

The Centrefold is available at Amazon UK and Amazon US
