Over 90 Poll Responses!!!

A HUGE thanks goes out to the over-90 VGMH friends who've already given up a minute of their time to take our quick survey!  And that goes double to those who've also emailed me with their personal stories. 

Both the poll results and personal accounts will be presented in an upcoming VGMH series about straight men who've hit on gay men through the decades.   As promised, this survey is 100% anonymous...and the personal stories emailed to me will only be used with their owner's approval to do so. The encounters already emailed are so diverse... the emotions so varying... and the outcomes so unpredictable, that I've been overwhelmed. It's promising to be a very interesting fall season!  Here's a brief summary of some of the email responses that will be part of our upcoming series (used by permission of the senders):

--The conservative college freshman virgin...discovering alcohol, sex and very confusing emotional messages of both attraction and disgust...all during one fall afternoon after a football game.

--His sister's boyfriend who stayed over for a week during a visit, and later became his brother in law.

--The hardware store loader and the contractor he fell in love with.
If you've already taken the poll, thanks!...and if not, why not? It's a Google/Blogger feature, so it stays within the blog...similar to leaving a comment.  The more who participate, the more that the final poll results will hopefully show how similar and diverse our life journeys are.  Thank you!

Suck on Daniel Craig! Sexy Pop Heats Up a Cool Treat.

In 2006, gay-friendly actor Daniel Craig took the part of James Bond and made it his own. Knowing a hottie when they see one, his ultra-fine rock-hard sculpted torso became Del Monte Foods inspiration for a promotional “license to chill” ice pop after the 007's movie release.  Those bad boys at Del Monte.... I'd bet my collection of James Bond DVD's that somewhere a gay man was behind this skin-slurping idea someplace!

They only allowed the stud-pop to "go down" just so-far on Daniel's sexy body...VGMH needs volunteers to lick Daniel and report back on how he tastes. 

The creators of this edible art said at the time that artists “worked tirelessly” (hehehe) to recreate a shirtless sculpture of the (then) 41-year-old Craig, in the classic scene where he emerges from the sea in Casino Royale. This was the 21st film in the James Bond series. The limited edition pops, which contained less than 1,000 calories each, were available in blueberry, pomegranate, and cranberry.

It's reported that during this promotion, London bars offered special Daniel Craig cocktails that included a frozen torso in each glass.  It also seems that Mr. Craig is the British actor men want to go on a date with. The James Bond star topped the poll of single gay guys (conducted by dating website http://www.gay-parship.co.uk/) where he won 31 per cent of the vote. Daniel, who starred as Francis Bacon's gay lover George Dyer in 1998 film 'Love Is the Devil: Study for a Portrait of Francis Bacon', was followed by 'Atonement' star James McAvoy, who came second with 18 per cent of the vote, and Colin Farrell, who finished third.  Jude Law and Ewan McGregor rounded off the top 5.

Said Daniel: "I was out recently and all these gay guys were over me like a rash. But for some reason they never ask about the Bond plot!"

1904: Gay Greek Ganymede meets a World-Famous Beer Icon

Long Before the 1950's Smut movie Ganymede and the Spaceman...that VGMH presented here yesterday, gay Ganymede was already in the media spotlight.  There was actually a time when the King of Beers ran an advertising campaign based upon an ancient Greek myth involving male beauty, gay sexual desire, and the Greek God Zeus. The sexy suds campaign ran around 1904.
First, some background:  According to ancient Greek mythology, Ganymede was a divine young male hero who lived in Troy. He was a handsome prince. In fact, Ganymede was described as being "the most attractive of mortals" and this status led Zeus to abduct him for his own. Zeus took the form of an eagle to capture the young man, to serve as cup-bearer to the gods and as Zeus's personal lover on Mount Olympus.  In the ancient Greek art shown here, Zeus is shown attracting the attention of Ganymede (although it's doubtful that either guy was thinking about beer).

Shortly after the turn of the last century, ads showing Ganymede being carried away by the Budweiser eagle were released by the company. Most advertising historians are in agreement that the company was probably trying to evoke classical images to establish their beer as being a classical drink. The ad says "Introduction of Budweiser to the Gods" and even names the studly male as being Ganymede. 
In fact, most Americans were likely not aware of the Greek myth that the ad referred to.  Still, it would be interesting to know what drinkers back then thought of the image of an eagle carrying away a naked male (sans cloth sash) holding a bottle of beer. Later, someone at the company no doubt connected the Greek dots that eventually lead to the eagle becoming Zeus once again and then having sex with the naked guy....and enjoying a tasty Budweiser?...The company dumped the guy but kept the eagle.
Today, the Ganymede print ads, steins, and serving trays are among the most desired marketing items by both gay vintage advertising and beer advertising collectors.

Has This Ever Happened to You?

CLASSIC STORYLINE:  He's the straight guy who prefers women, but will try to sex-up another dude when he’s horny and his immediate options are limited.  Coming this fall here at VMGH will be a new series about a 1970's male porn star who continues to draw interest... a self-identified macho straight guy who made a very successful career, often "using" gay men for his one-sided sexual satisfaction. The storyline in his porn was typically routine..he was being serviced but didn't do anything in return. Interestingly, this scenario continues to remain very popular with gay porn today.

Along with the series on this (to-be announced) smut star, VGMH would really like to include a summary of anonymous similar experiences...lots of men have been approached by a straight guy at some point in their lives. Completely anonymous, please complete the survey below....the results will be included in the series this fall. VGMH created this poll in Google and only the responses are tabulated.  If you have a special story (without real names) that you'd like share, email me. For those that may not already have it, my email is: stevesmile9@gmail.com

 thank you!

Vintage Gay Outer Space Smut Movie....It's Out-of-this-World!

Ganymede and the Spaceman-Video Below!
What could be better than a 1950's movie for a 2010 August Saturday night?  This featurette is fun--- and for lots of reasons...  It's obvious that the three men were having a totally good time during the filming.  VGMH enjoys watching how they play with the hokey sets and props as much as watching them in posing straps, wrestling and flexing.

Created by the wonderful Athletic Model Guide, other classic 1950-1960 short loops produced by this studio included "Little Joe" starring Joe Dallesandro, "Kangaroo Court", "Strip Poker", "Talent for Sale", and "Blackie Preston as Narcissus."
Actually, Ganymede ("GAN uh meed") is the seventh and largest of Jupiter's known satellites.  It was named after a male in Greek mythology, who became one of Zeus' lovers.

Thanks for a Nice Summer Afternoon, 1984 Sexy Nude Biker Guy

This first photo has so many wonderful things going on...and an original mystery regarding exactly when this photo shoot was first published has pretty much been self-answered, courtesy of the Olympics cycling t shirt that's so neatly posed in the background.  There were no Olympic Games in 1982, so VGMH will go out on a limb and say these photos are probably circa 1984 Summer Olympics, which were held in Los Angeles.   Alexi Singh Grewal won the men's cycling gold for the United States.  He became the first American man to win an Olympic gold medal in road cycling. His winning bicycle is now at the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of American History.

One of the great mysteries of men is that you never know how something that's soft and wrinkly will look and behave when it hardens up, and our cycle jockey has a noticeably nice bend to his woodie.  Ummm..exactly where that chair came from is more than needs to be contemplated, especially with those two globes comfortably relaxing in the summer sunshine. 
Below:  This photo illustrates the talents of a professional photographer who understands his model and audience.  The angle and view is perfect. 
Question: If you saw this tantalizing face and chest on a magazine cover, would it call for to you to pick it up and flip through the pages to see more? 
OK, for the last photo in this sportsman's journal, our fitness photo essay has come down to good old smut and VGMH is thankful for that~!  The sunlight as it dances and plays in his thick curly hairs is enough to say...let's just enjoy summer while it lasts!

Daniel Craig Caught Kissing Another Man? Nobody's Shaken or Stirred About It!

VGMH normally doesn't like to use the National Enquirer as an originating source for posts. But sometimes (like now) we do.  Keeping that in mind, for our purposes here, the story isn't that apparently Mr. Craig was caught smootching another guy in the parking lot of a gay club last May 15th...but rather that the National Enquirer's published story (which spread like wild fire on the internet blogs) failed to derail the career of a very talented masculine actor. And thankfully, it's reported that the represenatives for Daniel did not feel the need to respond and do "damage control" or denial. 

It's reported that an onlooker spoke to the National Enquirer,( who took a polygraph test to prove he was telling the truth) that he saw our James Bond actor making out with an unknown guy in the parking lot of Roosterfish Bar in Venice Beach. He said:

It was definitely Daniel Craig, and he was most certainly making out with a guy, Daniel kissed his friend on the lips. It was an open-mouth passionate French kiss. In fact, Daniel held the guy’s head in his hands and pulled him in for the kiss!” He said that as soon as Daniel (who is long time engaged to producer Satsuki Mitchell) realized they were being watched by the onlooker, he broke the kiss off immediately.

The reaction? A yawn. Very few seemed to care.  This man's version of James Bond brought in more box office cash than any other in the franchise's history, and audiences like him. 

There were some interent suggestions that the next 007 movie was postponed from beginning production because of this gay-kiss story, but most reputable news sources point to the fact that MGM is currently in financial restructuring and that a forced bankruptcy is a real possibility by September 15th of this year. According to Reuters, "Several major film projects already have been stalled by the studio's financial ill-health, including the next James Bond picture and two films based on J.R.R. Tolkien's book "The Hobbit." Other projects treading water include a planned "Three Stooges" movie and a "Robocop" remake. "

Hollywood sources reported that Oscar winning director Sam Mendes was developing the next Bond film before the production apparently ceased, and it’s believed that both he and star Daniel Craig will remain on the project once it gets back on track. With Craig's gritty and no-nonsense portrayal of Bond bringing in big box office cash, producers would be foolish to replace him and suffer comparisons (such as they did when Connery left the role).

Until the movie gets made, Blood Stone, the new Activision James Bond computer video game coming out next year, should keep the James Bond brand in the public consciousness.  VGMH notes that the video game Bond looks a whole lot like Mr. Craig (please see the sneak preview image of the game, below), which should help sink rumors that he would not return to the role, male kiss or not.  For his part, Daniel has recently said that he loves playing James Bond and is eagerly waiting to reprise his role as the iconic British spy for the third time in the next installment of the hit movie franchise.
In the meantime, the sexy British actor has been signed up to star in a Hollywood movie series based on late Swedish author Stieg Larsson's hugely popular Millennium Trilogy - The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played with Fire and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest.

Naked Bike Guy Enjoying Nature: Early 1980's Gay Erotica Photo Shoot

What a great view...of the beautiful lake.   Perhaps our athlete is demonstrating that, after riding on a hard narrow bike seat all day, his buttocks remain fresh and springy and full of energy....go ahead, just grab a cheek and see for yourself!  For those who aren't looking at the blue water (or other things in this photo), you'll notice that he has yet another shirt! 
Ahhh, the beauty of nature and the fresh scent of pines.  VGMH could just stare at this kind of scenery all day long.  Oh Oh!! Be careful! It looks like there's some nasty bare twig branches just to the left of your protruding boner ...better watch where you point that thing or it might get scratched!

Sexy Secret Agent Daniel Craig Has All The Right Stuff: A Bisexual Bond?

In 2008, The Daily Star reported that Mr. Craig said it wouldn't be a bad idea if James Bond became bisexual, because Craig says Bond's got a big gay following.  When asked whether he thought the famous ladykiller should bat for both sides, he replied: "Why not?  I think in this day and age fans would have accepted it. No-one blinks an eye." And the actor also said that the 007 role has now given him a big gay following: "I was out recently and all these gay guys were over me like a rash. But for some reason they never ask about the Bond plot!"

Craig is considered by many to be the only actor who seriously competes with Sean Connery in bringing the right chemistry to the role.  Even Sean Connery has said he thought Daniel was an excellent choice. 

Regarding Sean and Daniel as 007:  "In every scene, no matter what he's doing or how he's dressed, everybody in the audience knows that James Bond's hanging two huge 'n hairy balls, and he could either kill or fuck you using them."

Sexy 1980's Sports Guy Wearing White Lycra Bike Shorts

Here is our sportsman again, still trying to tame that stiff beast between his legs, but even he can see that it's pretty much a lost cause.
Finally, the spandex riding shorts get tossed to the ground as our cycling buddy decides to go au-natural. What's a man to do...sprouting a boner in the wilderness and without an accommodating person to stick it into? He looks creative enough to figure something out (as we'll see in the next post for this series).

Depending on your perspective, the fact that many men didn't shave or trim their crotches back in the early 1980's is either a plus or minus. Personally, it's a big plus.

Sean Connery: Life After Playing 1960's Sexy James Bond

Note:  It's getting time to wrap up VGMH's summer series on the James Bond movies and their 1960's sex symbol star, Sean Connery.  As this series concludes, please stay tuned for nude photos of James Bond hunk Daniel Craig later this week!

The 1970's
1971's homophobic Diamonds are Forever (already covered here at VGMH) proved that diamonds keep their appeal longer than some actors do.  While Connery continued to work in films, his celebrity star would never shine quite as brightly again (although he would go on to win big awards), and he would become mocked on Saturday Night Live as something of a walking idiot with bigger balls than anything else.  What changed? 

Without 007, Sean Connery was saying and doing things that weren't popular or socially acceptable with many of the people who made him a star in the first place:

Connery was married to actress Diane Cilento from 1962 to 1973. In her 2006 autobiography "My Nine Lives", as well as in subsequent interviews on radio and in print, Diane claimed that Connery had beaten her on several occasions. Connery denied the accusations. However, his case with public opinion was damaged when, in a December 1987 interview with Barbara Walters, he stated that it would be acceptable for a man to hit a woman with an open hand, if she continues to provoke the man after he concedes an argument to her. Connery had made similar remarks in a November 1965 interview with Playboy magazine on the set of Thunderball: "I don't think there is anything particularly wrong about hitting a woman ... If a woman is a bitch, or hysterical, or bloody-minded continually, then I'd do it." In 1993, Vanity Fair quoted him saying there are confrontational women who "want a smack".

It's reporteed that Connery blew his top when gay film director Gus Van Sant suggested that Sean's character in Finding Forrester was gay. Connery, who plays a reclusive writer who befriends a young basketball player, became angry when he heard the director's views. Connery reporedtly later played down the outburst. He said: "On the issue of the gayness and whether that is in the movie, it's Gus's cross to bear. "I suppose there could be undercurrents that my character is a closet homosexual."  In any case, gay fans took notice of the story and negative publicity.  
Photo, above.  Sean was in the Bahamas for their annual film festival. Connery won an honorary award, which upon presentation, turned out to be a big wooden statue that is either a gigantic penis (from the back) or a woman who looks like she is hiding inside a giant penis (from the front). 


Yes, that is Sean Connery in a red diaper costume.  This strange movie came out in 1974 and VGMH will present a separate post dedicated just to it later this week.

The 1980's bring Awards...
Sean would select better parts, and in 1988 won a Golden Globe Award, The Hollywood Foreign Press Association, for BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR for the film "The Untouchables."  He would also win BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR by the American Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences for the same movie. 

In July of 2000, he was Knighted "Sir Sean Connery" by Queen Elizabeth II in Edinburgh, Scotland.  Now retired,  Below is his 1986 appearance on the Dame Edna Show, where Sean talks about his early years and even about his posing as an art model:
