5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiration!
Justin Monroe makes candy seem dangerous. He makes it all seem so delightfully wicked. Granted the book is by nature provocative and has that high end glossy magazine feel. Is it art? That I will leave up to you to decide. Is it a coffee table book? Depends where your coffee table is. Would I leave it out for my Mother to notice when she visits? I think that depens on...

I can really only echo the previous review, there are some great photographs in this book, although, personally, I would have preferred more of the main reason for buying it - backsides - and fewer cocks.

I can really only echo the previous review, there are some great photographs in this book, although, personally, I would have preferred more of the main reason for buying it - backsides - and fewer cocks. They are printed on good heavy paper. The only reason for posting this review is that I'm much less forgiving of the pictures printed across a double page spread where they are really compomised by part of the image disappearing into the gutter of the binding - see examples on pages 12/13, 46/47 and, worst of all, 90/91 where the 'subject' of the picture (and book) almost disappears. These are not the only ones by any means, just the most annoying. I've made this comment about other Bruno Gmunder publications and intend to write to them about it this time - put up or shut up eh.

Dangerous, erotic and a delight. It is of course all pictures and frankly quite lovely and ever so naughty.

Present wise? Sure get it for someone who has a sense of humour... and likes men...

This review is from: Rock Bottom (Hardcover)
This is definitely a bum-per book of sorts, with some superb photos, all reproduced in glorious high definition. Justin Monroe's style has a pneumatic aspect, as do many of his models, and many liquids flying around, whether water or milk or other substances that give movement and gleam to what are very brightly lit confections. If some of them are quite wonderful, bearing out the promise of the cover and going beyond, with some delectable rumps stunningly lit and framed in gear etc, there is a sense of artifice that does place a limitation, I think, and one sequence in a car that is uncharacteristically dark that I don't find that enthralling or rear-end oriented enough! However there are at least a dozen images I do find exquisite and many others that are very pleasurable to look at, and there is a crazy aesthetic at work involving, say, parcel ribbon (in pink) or big lollipops that has makes for a fairly compulsive and varied viewing experience! My only other criticism is that sometimes the photos, which can be startlingly close-up, go over two pages in a way that means you miss a bit where the pages disappear into the spine. Once or twice this spoils the effect somewhat, although an analogy with the bottom seems to suggest itself - perhaps the frustration is meant to mirror that of not being able to make these figures spring to life off the page? They almost look as if they could, if you could only rub in the right place ...
