4.0 out of 5 stars Interestingly Explicit 21 Mar 2007
Format:Paperback
this is a fascinating collection of homoerotic art from across the ages - ranging from Ancient Greek representations of homosexual acts to modern day photography of men in various states of undress. Some of the pictures are quite explicit, but the collection as a whole is interesting and includes drawings, photos, sculpture and more. A nice little book worth buying if you are into homoerotica.

4.0 out of 5 stars Diverse collection of modern and historical homoerotic art. 30 Jan 2008
By Alyssa Nolan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This is a beautiful and varied collection of artwork that glorifies, eroticizes, and celebrates the male body. It contains art (paintings, sculptures, etc.) from as early as the most ancient civilizations to as late as the present day, and from countries as far apart on the map as China and America. Even the subject matter is diverse, as the art covers everything from Greek mythology, to modern-day S&M, to, of course, the arrow-ridden body of St. Sebastian that no collection of homoerotic art could ever be complete without. My only complaint about this book is that the art is not categorized by year, country, or both. Not only would that make it easier to find specific artwork, but it would also be interesting to compare and contrast different cultures or see how the art has evolved. Still, if you're interested in the historical and artistic depiction of homosexuality and the male body, or if you just enjoy admiring beautiful artwork (and you don't mind the small size of the pictures), then this book is well worth the price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great reference book for gay art! 9 Nov 2011
By Oscar - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a nice collection of gay art from a broad range of styles, movements, and media. I highly recommend it if you are looking for a reference book on gay art or if you want to look up the pieces on Wikipedia to learn more about homo art history.
