Today is Russia Day on the blog. (I have a number of Russian viewers who sometimes send me private notes, and appreciate both their input and their difficult situation as gay men in the Russia of Putin.) We will start with some early 20th C. nudes, and our first post is a question mark to me in some ways. I have seen it and several others in a nice series of six labeled as Russian on more than one reputable blog and as French on one other. Anyone have documentation?
