Parker and the covert Karoll of Havana.Arranged thematically with chapters such as Peak of Perfection, Swords & Sandals, Dare Devils, Locker Room, Demi Gods, Lonely Sailor, Rugged & Rough, and Gladiator, and celebrating the midcentury graphic design of the magazine covers and interiors, Beefcake is a fun and witty tribute to male physique photography....

    EVEN VEGETARIANS WILL LIKE.A terrific collection of vintage male erotica culled from "physique" magazines, mainly from the 1960's before the onslaught of "anything goes" nude photography.To those who grew up in an era where access to all-male pictures was limited to muscle mags and the like, this will be a real blast from the past and a nostalgic trip back to more "innocent" but also shockingly repressed days.Petra Mason has assembled some 200 photos, mostly full page, many in color and a very representative selection from the famous all-male studios including Bruce of Los Angeles, Lon of New York, KRIS, Champion, Vulcan, Les Demi Dieux, Douglas of Detroit and Western Photography Guild. This very handsome, sturdy publication has been broken up into nine sections to emphasize a certain style. For example: "Beefcake" and "Figure Studies" mainly feature muscle guys such as Steve Reeves and Larry Scott, whereas "Swords and Sandals", "Cowboys and Indians" and "Duals in the Sun" reflect the whimsical storytelling/fantasy images of a particular studio.Nothing too risqué here. Remember these were the days before "full exposure" and sex scenes became the norm. But there are still plenty of awesome men displaying their wares, with a fair share of soft full frontals, in a wide variety of physique poses. The closest interaction between the models are some quaint wrestling exhibitions and dual physique poses.Maybe mild compared to today's all-male material but probably regarded as pretty "hot" in times past.
