The images show well-endowed young men posing in the studio, in the great outdoors and in the bedroom, with all manner of props and in every position imaginable; most "stand to order" while others are "at ease." The first album with approximately 500 images, 222 of which are original photographs, including chromogenic (20) and silver prints (202). The second with approximately 400 images collected from magazines and other commercial sources. Prints from 1/2x1 to 11x8 inches (1.3x2.5 to 27.9x20.3 cm.).
