Whatever Happened to Mike Sill


A while back, some interest was generated when I posted some photos of Mike Sill, 1934-1994.  Mike was a devout Mormon who became a champion bodybuilder and nude model.  Mike's story proved interesting enough that I have decided to do a "Whatever happened to . . . " series in his honor.  I'll start with a Dave Martin photo from 1956-57.

  3. This post is a fascinating look at his life - he was always a favorite of mine but I had no idea his modeling was so varied and prolific - thanks for posting

  4. Interesting that you say "devout Mormon". *puts on Joker makeup* It shows just how authoritarian and homophobic/gymnophobic/erotophobic we as a society have become, that back then a nude model, fully aware other men would fap to these photos, could be considered conservative and observant.
