  2. I like these photos of uncut models who don’t pull back their foreskins. I wish that default pose was more common. It seems more “natural.” Pulling back the skin for a photo seems an attempt to be more overtly sexual.

    1. I hadn't thought about it, but you have a good point there.

    2. It's my understanding that pulling back the foreskin was a way for models to seem more "modern." Starting some time before WWII, American men and boys were increasingly likely to be circumcised. As a result, foreskins were considered old-fashioned, and pulling them back was a way for a model to seem more modern.

      I've always found uncut to be more attractive, and (being cut myself) can't understand why anyone with a foreskin wouldn't be happy to show it off (barring medical issues).

    3. After very many years, probably viewing thousands of penises still I can't decide, from an aesthetic point of view, which style I prefer. Brought up on classical and renaissance imagery has given me an appreciation of the modest endowment. My early nude photographic interest was, apart from Muybridge was based entirely American material, therefore mostly cut guys. This gave me a liking for the "high and tight" look. On balance I think it is the proportion of the head to the shaft with retracted and cut guys. Some seem to be a little shrivelled. With uncut, both a full head wider than the shaft and a small covered head, to me looks attractive. As I've mentioned many times I'm a life model and uncut. I always work foreskin forward, however, when doing naturist activities and sometimes modelling for nude photography I retract, especially in er, cool conditions. Someone should write a book on the subject.

  3. I agree. It seemed to be a very understated sexual reference. Another was the obvious oiled penis. Most of the nude photos, oiled or not, didn't have shiny oiled penises.

  4. I’m sure you already know this:
    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kynodesme

    “The public exposure of the penis head was regarded by the Greeks as dishonourable and shameful, something only seen in slaves and barbarians.[1] Modesty and decency demanded that men who showed themselves naked in a public setting, such as athletes or actors, must conceal their glans.”
