LUCAS KAZAN: He knows exactly who he is (at 24) and what he wants. Meet Italian newcomer Marco: openly gay (doesn’t often happen amongst Italian applicants), comfortable in his own skin, exclusively into bottoming (never happens!) “Sex is a form of freedom and self-expression”, he proudly says. “It’s not something I’m ever ashamed of, on the contrary…” Stay tuned for Marco’s action debut: we promised him a big cock!

SISSYDUDE @ FACEBOOK GROUP on August 4: Just read this interesting piece by Slava Mogutin about censorship on social media. I related a great deal, having myself been “terminated” and “blocked” on several occasions. I lost Sissydude on Blogspot in Sept 2009 (I was Dennis Cooper’d)… with no explanation or warning, been blocked from Facebook for several “month long” periods with no explanation as to why. And seriously, just after reading Mogutin’s article I went to log into Tumblr to find that today my account has been terminated! Ugh. No explanation of course, I’m waiting to hear back. Nine years of curation gone and connection to all the blogs I followed… gone. I think it’s really time to stop all this and go analog and just make real art and stop sharing things I love online. I’ve had enough of this. XO
August 6: Still nothing from Tumblr. I’m sure they won’t be back. So glad I moved Sissydude (thanks Aubs!) to it’s own site/server so many years ago. No one can censor me here. Though I may have take a break at some point. Thanks for coming here everyone! Much love to all. XOXOXO

NYT: The British fashion stylist IB Kamara, originally from Sierra Leone, and the South African photographer Kristin Lee-Moolman have collaborated on a project titled “2026,” which addresses heteronormative attitudes to self-expression through fashion. The photographs imagine what men’s wear may look like in 10 years, through the use of fabrics rescued from garbage bins and thrift shops in Johannesburg and made into contemporary garments.
“I wanted to create a utopia where you can be whatever you want to be, without emphasis on masculinity or sexuality,” Mr. Kamara said last week, as he put the finishing touches to the large-scale photographic prints of young African men in dresses now hanging from the walls of Somerset House, one of Britain’s grandest palaces. “I wanted men, in particular black men, to just be able to be and breathe like every other type of man has been able to breathe for centuries, without the pressure and policing of black masculinity lingering over them.”

Sissydude totally got a boner when he read this Jake quote @ The Chicago Tribune:
“I’m extremely hairy,” the Cubs ace says in the annual photo spread featuring athletes in the nude. “It pretty much connects from the top of my head to my toes with a nice upper body sweater/track jacket type of thing. I’m shaved right now. The chest is good, the back is pretty solidly shaven.”
I think the beard plays a slight factor to my presence on the mound. It’s kind of part of the persona now. Everyone in Chicago embraced it, so I got to keep it. I can’t ditch it now. I got rid of it in the offseason and I got some pretty intense reactions. I told them, “Don’t worry, give me two weeks and it’ll be back.” READ THE Arrieta ESPN interview HERE.
MORE JAKE SEXINESS after the JUMP….
