LOOKING DOWN a very NATURAL Treasure Trail

I love this photo.  Thank you Kevin.  I like it most because it is a very candid and appealing photo of a man who is beautiful and isn't a model.

How beautiful he is.  The hairy armpits.  The body hair that appears to be unsullied.

And the TT leading to a very nice bush and impressive package of jewels.

Thank you again, Kevin.   Our TT muse provides us with another interesting and remarkable study of masculine beauty.

This lovely is provocative and is the essence of what this blog has always been about.   Men are so fantastic and luscious and so diverse.  Fashions wax and wane...and wax wane, and wax and wane.  Eternally. Infinitum.  

I love this exquisite man.  He meets all of the current requirements for fitness (the abs, the pecs, and the "whatever" you call it).   He was born lovely, unlike most of us, and he has enhanced his beauty.

He has a lovely TT.  Is it 'scapped?   Enhancing one's essence is beautiful.  But eliminating it or making it grotesque, is not for this old person.  I came out in the late '70s.  I have seen all kinds of fashions.   Shaving your body hair was quite fashionable in the early 80s.  It was very erotic.  But that was 1980.  How is it that our species has taken that fashion to such grotesqueness that has the grooming fashions that influenced the majority of penises.

I think that male beauty is endlessly mouth-watering.  After almost six decades.  But male beauty is astonishing because of its nature.  I hope to never see another image of a beautiful man with a completely shaved body that is gorgeous in all other ways except one.

Is anyone still capable of conversation?  

Enjoy everyone, zombies and not!  I would suggest you click on the photo to admire.  If your junk can do it.

The TREASURE TRAIL from the SIDE and in black & white

What a remarkable photo study this is.  And what a remarkable natural TT and male beauty without the sacrilege of waxing, shaving or whatever contrivance is in vogue, this nanosecond.

What a beautiful appreciation of male beauty this artist brings.   It perfectly illustrates male au natural.

Despite the horrendous and odious reality of yesterday, I will sleep serenely in the few hours of sleep ahead.

Enjoy!  I'd like to think this is the perfect example of male beauty, uncontrived and distorted.  So balanced. The subtle lighting enhances the beautiful hairs on this specimen's legs.  And his sweet TT.

This is photographic sculpture, to me.

Thank you Kevin.   If this were the last thing I ever saw, I would go with such a happy smile.

Peace and Namaste ("I bow to the light in you that also shines in me) to you all!

Sometimes when I see a TT that is so remarkable, it takes my breath.  I will not ever say that to a man who has shaved his body.  I am so old that I have seen so many cycles of male beauty trends.  Over and over again.  I have even seen beautiful male specimens for decades before I was born in 1962.  

I watched Magnin PI yesterday.  I hadn't seen it in years.  But I marveled at how beautiful Magnum was.  He was astonishingly tall and long-limbed.  His body was proportionate and naturally fit.   He was not pumped up so bizarrely.  And he was so perfectly, naturally hirsute on his lovely frame.  No affectation.  No contrivance.  Just 1000% beautiful specimen of manhood.

Fashions wax and wane and repeat infinitely.  As Dame Shirley Bassey sang it is "all just history repeating."  But the pendulum swings so slowly.  

What is wonderful about our current time is grooming fashion has influenced men to enhance the most beautiful aspects of their bodies.  Often, the inject steroids and become, IMO, freaks of nature.  They pump themselves up to the grotesque.   And they obliterate their natural masculinity by wretchedly altering their body hair.

And then I find a photo that illustrates everything remarkable about the evolution of masculinity in our current tumultuous times.  Thank you to our Pied Piper, Kevin Conus.   This photo truly reflects the ultimate essence of male beauty:  a contemporary man who reflects the very best of our culture today.  A beautifully sculpted body that puts any 'Roid Reckage to shame.  He has enhanced his natural beauty.  He has not contrived himself to a hideous caricature of wretched human excess, the theme that is the essence of the times in which live.

He is truly perfect.  For me.  If you like waxed shaved/waxed pumped up masculinity, this is not the website for you.  You are in the majority and will find reinforcement of your values everywhere.  But not here.

Magnin PI was truly a remarkable, hall of fame male specimen for that time.   Men are made in such a staggering diverse of makes and models.   I prefer natural.  I have always been in the minority.  IIn this case, I have been against all mainstream fashions in our world.  

This is the penultimate, ideal representation of male beauty of our current human cultural fashions and tastes.  It may take another 20 years for the pendulum to swing.    Magnum PI was exquisite in that era.  And this man is in our current era, even though most people wouldn't agree.  "I sing the body electric."  

If you or your equipment will allow, click on the photo to make male beauty made "manifold."

This man is mouthwatering.  He has my favorite specimen of TT as those of you will know who have been afficionados of this blog.  I love the dense furriness of the trail and the groin.  And the intense dark hair.  How about that hairy chest and nibble.  I have previously categorized this type of male hairiness as "Mark's Favorite."   Made even more enticing by the sweet nectar.

Thank you Kevin Conus for this amazing beauty.  For me, it is rhapsodic.

The TREASURE TRAIL in the Light

This photo praises all the natural beauty of a man.

LOOKING UP the Treasure Trail.

He sleeps.    And I weep.   What an enchanting specimen, no?

Friday, January 3, 2020


Greetings to you all in 2020!  A new decade.  This blog starts its third decade.  We started in 2009.  At the time, blogs were all the rage.  I could not understand the concept.  I wasn't sure what the meaning or purpose of this new way of communication.  Julie and Julia, a remarkable book and film had brought the blog concept to the masses.  I relished the concept and fell in love with the book. And then I saw the movie that starred, Meryl Streep and Amy Adams.  It was based on a real blog by Julie, who in a time of life change, endeavored to cook every recipe from Julia Child's cookbook.  She recorded her cooking triumphs and travails in a blog which was a paeon to Dame Julia (if she's not she should be).

So I decided to experiment and start my own blog as a way to learn and discover.  I chose a topic that I thought was unique and interesting.  And not too intimidating.

And the blog is still here thirteen years later.  And our preferences for male beauty are STILL in the minority.  If not more than ever.

This first specimen of our second decade is a long, thin, and windy beauty.  Those of you who have been here a while know this male body type really gets me going.  Tall, lanky, fit, thin and hirsute but not too.  A tall drink of water they used to say, way back in the day.

We admire all types of men here.  As long as they are quasi-natural.  I little bit of manscapping is good.   I have always found that particular aspect of a man's body to be uber erotic:  the TREASURE TRAIL (TT).

Our mission statement remains as timely, contemporary after a decade.  And so I'll show it here again:


This blog site is intended to be a study of the beauty of the male form, particularly that most visually erotic and enticing area, the treasure trail.

It is difficult in this day and age to compose such a study because the current male ideal is a shaved, non-hirsute facsimile of real masculinity. Searching for photographs of the treasure trail is a hunt in and of itself because it seems most men these days are shaving everywhere. (If you must shave please leave your trail........trim it if need be but don't obliterate your most enchanting spot!)

This is not intended to be a blog about hairy chested men. It may seem so only because so many men either shave their chest or don't, so the only photos you can find seem to be one or another. We search to find a balance of naturally smooth chested guys with a natural treasure trail.

It is the philosophy of this blog that the male form is exquisitely beautiful in all of its infinite forms, which are well illustrated through this blog's photographic study.

We encourage anyone to submit photos for inclusion on this photo study or other material. Comments are welcomed on the subject of the treasure trail. Speak to us!

JUST the TREASURE TRAIL. Sort of.....

This specimen is a masterpiece.  The dudes body, first of all.  And the photographic perspective.  It is seldom to find a photographer who appreciates male beauty the way we do.

The TT is beguiling.  The nipple makes me quiver.  The hairy chest.  The cleavage.  The bush peaking out is so remarkable.

Imagine if this man, who sculpted his beautiful musculature, decided at the same time to detract from his natural beauty and eliminate body hair.

I celebrate all men in their natural state.  Hair or not  Artifice is one of the things that makes humans ugly.  Not all of us are born blessed as this beauty.  Some of us also do not contrive to make ourselves anything different but what we are.  That is beautiful enough.   The way are born is NOT wrong and we shouldn't feel any shame.  It has taken me decades to understand this concept.  I will go to my grave full of shame.  I only hope that future generations do not carry this forward.  I'm skeptical.  Our species seems to lack something.  We just keep repeating horrors.

Thank you Kevin for this magnificent high note for the end of a decade.  Let us hope that the next decade will still see the beauty of masculinity.

Happy New Years to you all!  And Happy Trails to you!

A complex, bountiful TREASURE TRAIL

Oh my!  Our amazing benefactor has brought a remarkable portrait of male beauty.

I shudder to think of the sacrilege if this beautiful man shave his body hair, in brief or in total.  I sing the praises of the male form in all of its forms.  Hirsute or not.  Naturally!

What a salivating TT this dude shows off.  Rightfully so.  The trail leads to such astonishing treasures above and below.  Look at the bush framing his priceless treasure.  This specimen is a perfect man in every way, IMHO.  I highly recommend, that if your equipment will allow, that you click on this photo.

He proudly exhibits his natural, true beauty.

We have just a few more days to complete this "Annus Horiblus" (IMO).  How should we close it out?  I cannot thank enough all of the readers who continue to contribute comments and reactions. 

We enter a new decade together, which begin this blog's second.  Hopefully, the pendulum is rebounding back toward the celebration of the MALE as it was given to us. Until then, we'll keep the candle lit brightly for the cause!

A magnificent ARROW Treasure Trail

It has been a while since I've defined a TT.   Male beauty is so fluid.  Men are like diamonds with so many beautiful facets.  And like a diamond, each facet comes alive with just the right lighting.  It illuminates.  This beautiful specimen is astonishing.

This photographer deserves an award.  Lighting brings animates all of our perspectives.   In this remarkable study, the pose and the lighting highlight so many facets of this exceptional homage to male beauty.  I see a distinct downward arrow TT.  It is natural and without artifice.  And this MAN has worked hard to enhance everything about his body to best effect.  The red light exaggerates his abdomen sculpting on his right side.  

So many beautiful men these days, shave or wax or whatever their body hair.  This man is a masterpiece.  But he is so because he has celebrated nature's gift to him.  He enhanced his body.  But he didn't eliminate his body hair.

I can only wonder what other breathtaking facets one would discover up close and intimately.  

Thank you Kevin for this Arrow TT!  Click on photo to enlarge.

A bewitching specimen for the TREASURE TRAIL Hall of Fame

This man is so perfect in every way to me.  I like his natural furriness. Not bearish. (which is quite okay to me).  But he has left his natural beauty alone.

This TT is enchanting.  The Trail has multiple facets that make is so charismatic and stunning.  There is a well-defined vertical stripe.  But it's beauty is made manifold, with a oval-ish circular disbursement of hair to frame the vertical brilliant line.  Together, these two aspects makes this TT specimen so striking and most of all, unique.  I could wax rhapsodic about the rest of the dude.  He is perfect in every way.

Thank you Kevin.

We may have celebrated this lovely specimen before.  This photo is from earlier this decade.

I was born blonde.  So I experienced life as a blond, right to the ugly hideous end.  Some of us are hairy but you can't see the blonde hairs in a photo.  In reality, the natural beautiful body hair of a blond can be so sensual if you see it in the perfect light.  I used to play tennis in high school.  Some of the sexiest memories I have are of lithe, young men my age, who had quite a bright, blond verdant manscape of body hair.  The sexiest of my peers, had thick patches of body hair on their arms, legs, and at that age, sometimes the chest. They had beautiful body hair but you couldn't appreciate it from afar, or if you were closer but the lighting was not right.

Have any of you appreciated blonds?  They are one of many exquisite male body specimens (I love the spectrum A to Z myself).  I love the vivid, but so subtle body hair some blonds are born with.  Other blonds have very little body hair and if so, it is very light.  And it doesn't photograph.  But they too are perfect.

And so I offer this "vintage-ish" (2013) photo as a ode to naturally blond men.  It looks like he might have done a bit of 'scapping in a region leading from the TT to a clipped bush?   But I know that the beauty of a blond is that the luster and subtlety of their body hair can only be discovered when you are close in person.  Few photographers understand how to capture this exquisite, hidden beauty.

I seem to become more like Walt Whitman every day (not in my literary skills, I know).  I find at the end of life an amazing new perspective.  "I sing the body electric."

And this is just one illustration.  I remember this sort of beauty from my youth in the 1970's, although no one shaved or altered the body.   I hope in the future that all of you will know the beauty of a man without his natural beauty unsullied.   It is so much more interesting and sensuous than the butchery we endure due to today's freaky unattractive fashions.  A man's beauty becomes infinite.  But not when they shave themselves.  A man's beauty is more than the size of his penis, scrotum and testicles.  As this "vintage" photo proves.

I love this specimen.  I think this is a naturally hairy dude.  He has thankfully sculpted his body.  Which means he enhanced his natural beauty.  He also exhibits IMO body hair that has not been obliterated.  No stubble here.  But maybe he shaved his balls?  

Men are beautiful the way the came to their lives.  We've been living in this strange, altered dimension for a couple of decades that has dictated men (gay and straight) to get rid of their body hair.  This is a travesty.  Will it take another two decades for this tragic fashion to become passe?

Quite probably. The pendulum swings.  Fashion moves, on occasion, at a glacial pace.  I've lived long enough to know that this is the truth and not fable.

What a beautiful representation this photo of all the qualities we encourage at this blog.  This is the current ideal.  But I love natural men which runs a very wide gamut.  Not just men that are professional models. In this blog's history, I've tried to show a spectrum.  I try to prove a point.  That men are beautiful when they display in the way the goddess created them.  I hope that this message will someday take hold of the zeitgeist.

Thank you, Kevin.

Enjoy!  And please leave some response.   You can just express your reactions by choosing one of the three radial buttons.  Or you can make a comment.  I appreciate every one of you who continue to support my silly ideal.

I hope this specimen hasn't appeared before.  If so, then it bears repeating.

Thank you Kevin.

Why would anyone eliminate their body hair if they were born this way!  Too many do so.   But, why?

I hope someday, once again, the male natural form, with or without body hair, will again become the fashion.  Until that day, we'll keep the appreciation going here for the beauty of masculinity, unsullied.
