Douglas

We start the Hussar photo show with a very well lighted Douglas Potter.  His body 
has that chiseled look, and the posing strap doesn't fully hide the goods.  Nice.

  1. It looks like, instead of tucking his penis down, he let the strap pull it upward. Or maybe he was getting erect? No matter, it's quite attractive.

    1. I had the same question, and the same answer. No matter.

    2. In the 60s and 70s, here in the UK, there was definitely a fashion for wearing one's up in your underpants. I did this myself, as did several of my mates. I remember quite a few underwear adverts showing this. It might be related to the very tight jeans we wore. More comfortable and out of the way? Also hiding any, er "expansion".

    3. I don't recall that catching on in the USA, at least where I was.

  2. When Lord Montagu of Beaulieu (pronounced bew-lee, meaning "beautiful place" in Norman French) was put on trial for facilitating homosexual conduct between two RAF officers - who were indeed lovers - he was asked by the prosecuting barrister if one of the men in a photograph of them in bathing trunks had an erection. The defending barrister replied no, "that the penis is positioned upright as many men do today", which would imply that it was the fashion of the time to wear oneself upright. To finish the story, Lord Montagu served 12 months of a custodial sentence and faced national disgrace, the two officers served 18 months with a dishonourable discharge. There was no parole in those days.

    What a fabulous image. Yes, very nice indeed.

  3. Calorman, love your input from across the pond, and your insight from a British perspective. Jerry, once again out of the ballpark. On YouTube, there is video called "Gay life in the 1930s" from London Weekend Television.
    It's a wonderful document about gay life in London at that time and place.
    The two gentlemen featured are a 'kick".
    And poor Lord Montagu and the men around him, behavior that's kept discreet
    among the ruling class is encouraged in a way. But as soon as it becomes public knowledge, family and friends disappear and you become a disgrace.

    1. Thank for highlighting the YouTube video "Being Gay in the Thirties". It is indeed a fascinating documentary and I thoroughly recommend it.
