For some reason, there still seems to be an idea of the 'evil penis' in art.  We live in such an open minded time, but some reason reason the idea that it is acceptable to photograph the female form nude, yet it is crude or disgusting to photograph the naked male body.  Every body is beautiful in its own way, so here are a selection of some of the incredible male nudes I have found on deviantart.

I don't care if this is nearly 2 years late but I want to comment damn it.

To sum it up, its the male gaze. Those that are too occupied with finding something erotic with the female nude will gladly toss male nudes to the side simply because they don't find it enticing enough for THEM. They don't care about equal representation in art but rather what pleases them, thus we get a lot of homophobic views on the male form from people who find it shameful that men would want to pose nude and show their bodies. And its not just guys making lewd comments towards male nudes as women do it too and can be even more nasty about it, going on some sort of moral banner about how seeing a male nude is wrong without any reason as to WHY in the first place.

I would love to see more male nudes as I feel that men are very underrepresented in art and anatomy classes. For the most part, the only thing we're going to see are simply naked women which leaves many people unable to draw or study off the male figure. A good example would be two anatomy books I studied from a week ago. the entire thing was full of FEMALE nudes and when I was desperately looking for a male figure, I could not find one. What is the point of art if we are not free to love the bodies of both women and men, of all sizes and details?

would you prefer the WOMEN, like myself stare for hours at the female body? No thank you! If I wanted to do that I'd just go stare at myself in the mirror.

Tasteful selection and brave topic. I hope someday bravery won't be necessary. It shouldn't be!

Good for you! Thanks.

Good discussion...

I had a discussion the other day with someone regarding a nude that depicted an ejaculation - is it possible for it to be looked at as an artistic nude (as was the intention) or will the fact that there is ejaculate automatically cause it to be viewed as pornographic? I was thinking about this as I scanned the dozens if not hundreds of images on DA that feature bloodletting, but couldn't find a one that depicted an ejaculation in an artistic way (or any way, for that matter).
