Tumblrs you should know

Aching Blossom refers you to some of the best Tumblr blogs for finding great photography of men.

If you’re like me, searching online for photos of beautiful men in states of undress has left you mostly disillusioned: lurid, crass and just poorly shot pictures can easily dissuade you before youve got far. Although there are now growing numbers of sites cropping up that feature high-quality photography of men, they can be hard to find, so here are some hand-picked recommendations.

Tumblr is a relatively new blogging tool, launched in 2007. It allows users to create tumblelogs of text, photos, music, videos and pretty much anything else. Viewing doesnt require sign-up, but if you do sign up, you can create a collection of liked images and reblog your favourites. The ease of reblogging distinguishes Tumblr from other blogs, but Tumblr is criticised for the same reason: its easy to reblog without credit to the artist or source.

Here are some Tumblrs I like to get you started:

  • Sex is not the enemy contains an abundance of thoughtful sex-positive writing and pictures of silicon-free folks, thankfully lacking in posing and pretense.
  • You are an object is straplined a place to treat bros like girls and collects worksafe photos of men, sometimes accompanied by random commentary.
  • For the ladies alternates between artistic and graphic depictions of sculpted bodies, heterosexual and gay sex, men kissing and more.
  • Mostly straight is a tumblr for straight and bisexual women, dedicated to photos of hot naked men, masculine-identified people and straight and queer couples. It also includes a fair smattering of more violent BDSM imagery and bondage scenes.
  • Male submission art, curated by activist, writer and proponent of male erotic image may may, features a wide variety of men being submissive in a wide variety of ways. Whether bound, collared, gagged or otherwise, a fellow can look quite hot, indeed.

New tumblelogs are popping up all the time, so this is but a small sample. Which are your favourites for excellent man pics?
