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.

LOOKING UP the Treasure Trail.

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

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!
