The musculature of the male on the right shows very well in this light. I wonder why he pouched the guy on the left. The pouch looks well-filled. Maybe he thought the man's penis was so big it might get in the way, or get hurt. Who knows?
I had the same question about that posing strap, although I will note that this was not the only time Muybridge used them. Safety issues did not seem as obvious in those others as in this one. I suppose that some models might not have been comfortable with full nudity.
I animated this sequence a few years back, on YouTube.https://youtu.be/r2lbPC6N40E
Thanks! I hadn't seen that one before.
