Masculinity is a perpetually unstable state, requiring constant re-affirmation. This affirmation is a performance specifically for an audience of men, to whom we prove and reprove our identity as proof of membership to the tribe. Eroticism is the perpetual cycle of transgression, from contradiction to affirmation and back again, of our identities as they are encoded by the stereotypes of masculinity and desire. These are the pictures of the erotic affirmation of masculinity. All photos recycled. The usual disclaimers apply.
