PHOTOS: Is This Fashion Photography Or Gay Porn?

gay-porn-or-fashionThe line between gay porn and fashion photography is becoming increasingly blurry. Sometimes we’re not sure if we’re looking at an editorial shoot documenting “The Secret Homoerotic Lives Of Cuban Men” or the front cover of documentary about straight guys doing gay porn.

What is safe for work anymore? What is unsafe for work? Does it even matter if you can’t tell the difference?

Check out 10 risqué photos below, and try to guess if it’s from a professional gay porn production or a high-fashion photoshoot (scroll down for the answers):

      It’s really not that hard. I got all of them right except for #10.

      answering the question, it is both: porn becoming fashionable and fashion with porn influences.

      It’s no worse than the sex that sells straight merch such as perfumes and colognes – and even underwear to straight men before they knew the designer was gay (or closeted) – sex sells, always has, always will – that will be one constant in the marketing universe.

      Picking and choosing from a set of pictures? Popular photography styles and editing being what they are, it’s not that simple. The “eye of the beholder” rabbit hole is always right in front of you.

      I have no idea what kind of eerie, silent horror-style porn scene is about to take place in #8.

      I call shinanigans for #10, first of all they’re naked, but ok, so is #3 and that i would say is fashion, but #10 is way more upfront with it’s sexuality plus it has colby keller a major porn star.

      We can all imagine just how deeply concerned the good people of Queerty are about the blurring of lines between porn and fashion shoots. If it’s any help, then the absolute minimum for porn is exposed genitalia, which none of these photos even seem to promise, much less display. Got that, Queerty? Now you can all put your smelling salts away.

      Of course, the other surefire test is: if it’s on Queerty, it ain’t porn.

      It’s only porn if the guy(s) have an obvious erection (in or out of the undies) or are showing over 1/2 of their pecker.
      Otherwise, it’s just (titillating) fashion (see Benjamin Godfrey.)

      I like looking at attractive, nearly naked men as much as the next fag, but I don’t understand the concept of advertising fashion with naked models. Isn’t the point of fashion photography to sell CLOTHES? How do you sell clothes if the models aren’t wearing any. It’s like trying to sell cars with pictures of a bicycle and a horse and buggy.
