The first time I saw a boy wearing eyeliner

definitely easier to have, no pun intended, broader sexual preferences.

When I said my lust for a smooth young boy has moderated I wasn't thinking of my pansexuality. When I first discovered my love of the pretty lad I was most strongly attracted to boys my age or younger. Even though I've sold sex I never wanted to find myself one day paying for it. And a few years later my sexuality became more and more focused on romantic love. I didn't want that continuing when I was 30, much less later. For reasons as practical as personal-aesthetic. The age of consent is eighteen in the US. And people have been jailed for many years for being nineteen when their lover was seventeen. Maybe I should've learned Dutch.

The young blonde photographed by Will McBride was especially lovely. But …

Gloeden, while a pioneer in gay photography, made use of an overblown style that doesn't appeal to me on neither artistic, nor erotic level

Only a smattering of what I found appeals to me. Some months back I was on a quest for early homoerotica. What I wanted to find was American imagery from the 50s - early 70s that didn't focus on masculinity. What few examples I could find were older and perhaps too 'artistic.'

Pierre et Gilles

First time someone brought one of their books in the shop I fell in love with it. For maybe ten minutes. Cloys quickly. I think I've found two of the works that really appeal to me and the model of one was Ryan Phillipe who looks nice enough without them.

In my opinion, eyeliner on boys seems more a case of gilding the lily.

I remember the first time I saw a boy wearing eyeliner (no other makeup) as clearly as if it were yesterday. Little did I realize I was discovering the core of my sexual aesthetic: genderfuck, androgyny, whatever you want to call it.

The merely very pretty boys are fine. When I was eighteen I wouldn't have said this. But I'd much rather see an average guy with a swish, trailing pixie dust in his wake.
