      I hope they’re all gay and straight.
      The sleeping pictures are wonderful in their sense of freedom and lack of complication.

      Sweet, peaceful pics, but, I can’t believe ANY of them ate Str8!!! How can that not lead to boners, and, at least, roaming hands and frottage? Wouldn’t it be great if most straight men adopted this activity? I’d love to cuddle with quite a few of my bubba buddies!

      SO NICE how Queerty always throws in ONE ‘token’ black guy/couple. But it’s always usually just the one photo in these ‘pictorals’. They couldn’t copy/paste more from Google images?

      Apparently there are no cuddle photos of adorable, older, heavier, hairier straight and gay men out there for you to gather up Queerty.

      I’m somewhat amazed that you couldn’t find a way to insert Davey Wavey and/or Zack Efron into the mix.

      Very cute, but, how does Queerty have any idea of what these men’s sexual orientation is simply by looking at the photos?. Do you guys simply infer they’re all straight because many of them are masculine looking?. I think it’s great men(straight, gay, bi) share this kind of intimacy, but I think it’s troubling to make inferences on people’s sexual orientation, in either direction. Yes, we can’t just infer they’re gay/bi because they’re snuggling, but you can’t just infer they’re straight because they have the ‘jock type’.

      I thought the two guys sleeping on the train was staged, and the image flipped, because the label on the camo suit reads “HOMO” backwards. Then I noticed that the subway map is Moscow, and the word is “omon”, Russian for “riot police”. Now THERE’S irony.

      @jayj150:

      I agree with you 100% and to be honest when i look at these pics, I just can’t help but think that most of these guys are gay or at least bi. Maybe it’s wishful thinking on my part. Whatever. Personally though, I’m getting real tired and annoyed by this straight obsession many gays still have. Yeah I know, I know. I’m being such a Debbie Downer right now. ;) I mean, I’m glad that more and more straights are getting less uptight. I get it, but at the same time I don’t get all fangirly at the idea of 2 straight guys cuddling. I swear, there are some gay guys out there that seem to get more turned on by the idea of straight men touching each other than actual gay men passionately going at it. It seems crazy (and it is), but there is truth to it.

      @TerrenM: I was thinking exactly the same thing. Especially since I’ve been reading a lot about race and diversity issues so I’m becoming more aware about white supremacy and stuff. It just sucks that there’s not much we can do to change it :/

      Don’t get my wrong I always love these pictures of guys being affectionate with each other, but at times it seems a bit redundant with the same race of guys and sometimes even similar styles, I have to do a double take to see if I already saw that one or if those guys look like brothers lol. Interracial couples ftw! :)

      Yup, guilty as charged! And I wish I knew how to get past this issue, which to a some degree extent infects the whole community from top to bottom; G4P etc. As a community we need to have big ass debate about the causes and pschological cost of all this. As a start Queerty could adress the issue and regularly at that.

      From a nilla perspective I’d echo the call for more variety and ethnic diversity round here.

      Prince of Snarkness aka DIVKID: I think this ” more turned on by straight men touching eachother “- Thing is a kind of natural or “normal” for men who like men.I mean in a lot of situations you are “outnumbered” in daily live if you don’t live in a gay bar.But you still like men.So there are tons of situations to “fantasize”.If this “Thing” turns not into a “Don’t be gay” -or a “All men are at least Bi”Attitude I do not see any “Issue” there…

      Auntsharon, I taught ESL in Moscow in the early ’90s (shortly after the break-up of the “CCCP”), and I can confirm that even among “homophobic” Russians, the kind of male/male body contact seen in the Moscow subway photo above would not cause the slightest bit of giggling or mocking.

      I would also totally recommend gay historian John Ibson’s Picturing Men for a vintage photographic survey of how body-language-rules have changed (for the worse) among American men. A lot of the poses seen above were extremely common and uncontroversial in American photography between the Civil War and WW2.

      It wasn’t that the “spooning” guys in these antique, sepia-toned photos represented some kind of secret homosexual underground (a few of them might have, but nearly all of the spooning male couples were straight); the point is that hugging or hand-holding weren’t sexualized back then, so these activities were okay for “normal” hetero guys to engage in during a photo session.

      Gays coming out of the closet temporarily made American straight guys extremely paranoid about simple, non-sexual cuddling with their bros, but I think society has almost evolved enough now that young guys are beginning to re-understand the difference between sexualized gay-cuddling where you’re deliberately trying to give each other boners, and just-friends cuddling between dudes who like each other and are trying to keep warm without sexual tension.

      P.S. I totally love “nekkid spooning” with another horny homo guy before and after man-sex, and it’s disappointing if a sex-buddy doesn’t want to spoon and cuddle because that would mean we’re boyfriends engaged to be gay-married, and they’re afraid of commitment. (I have always been a big believer in inviting the other guy to crash on my sofa if he wants and cooking him breakfast in the A.M., even if it’s a totally no-strings “buddy” situation.)

      However, I also fully understand that “spooning” doesn’t have to be even slightly sexual. I “spooned” non-sexually as a gay Boy Scout, and I’ve also done it as the uncle of a 7-year-old nephew who likes to snuggle up with whatever adult is reading the bedtime story, whether it’s mommy and daddy, or grandma, or Uncle Rob, or Aunt Cathy.

      :)Hey McGee …if a straigt man hang out with his “bro” its like hanging out with his brother… familiar bodycontact is normal and has no sexual intention.I use to have male friends since Kindergarten and shared a flat with 3 guys ( friends of my 5 years older sister).I was like the little sister.If boys or men are not insecure or educated to “keep distance” they don’t care so much about if this or that could ” look gay”.

      Internet is always full of ridiculous fiction. These kids nowadays are just as homophobic if not more homophobic than ever before. Give it a rest with the fantasies.

      There are closeted guys who will interact with each other and some go on to find a beard. That’s about as close to this being a reality as you’re going to get.

      At the end of the day everyone in question is still gay, claiming they’re not is dependent upon their environment, and upbringing.

      Well, the photos were tied in with an article about a survey of college-aged guys in the UK, so (for once) Queerty’s chicken-centric photo selections sorta made sense — at least, they fit the text.

      That said, not all college dudes are slender twinks with waxed chests!

      I am fortunate to have a touchy feely str8 friend.

      We aren’t at the cuddling point, BUT, we gone from saying I love you a lot to each other, to when we sit on the couch, he then sits sideways with his legs resting on my lap, to sometimes be handsy, and now, he would sometimes just give me a peck on the forehead. I can’t ask for a better friend.

      I am of bigger stature too and wants to help me get slender. I love this man!

      Toberlin, as the Russians say, “Ja ne govorju po-nemetski”, so forgive my incompetent German, but I didn’t know, dass Du bist ein Mädchen!. Well, bad luck for me, but straight men are lucky!

      Anyway, I also love Love Handles… my favorite guys are big rugby players who have (natural-looking) muscles, but also enjoy well-cooked food and quality beer and have a bit of extra fat on them.

      @Disturbed1ne:

      I’ve said this before, but: “Martial arts! Martial arts!” Seriously, for many reasons, a good martial-arts program is one of the best possible approaches to improving your overall physical condition. (For one thing, karate or whatever gives you a sort of framework in which you can pursue other conditioning/weight-loss activities such as weightlifting and aerobics.)

      Also, DON’T rely on crash diets without adding some sort of regular exercise routine. Simply adjusting your daily schedule to add about 30-60 minutes of brisk walking EVERY DAY can help. A buddy of mine in NYC lost a whole lot of extra weight in six months after he and his hubby moved to a new apartment that was considerably farther from the nearest subway station than their old apartment had been — so it added about 30 minutes of walking (round trip) to his daily commute.

      @litper:

      In many ways I am pathetic, but there’s nothing pathetic about my reading skills, Mary.

      But since you seem to have some problems in the reading department, let me dumb it down for you:

      Two male Greco-Roman wrestlers who both like vaginas and aren’t turned on at all by penises are in a really tight grapple and their balls rub together = NOT GAY

      Two guys are having dinner in a restaurant (maybe their first-ever dinner together, maybe their 100th dinner together) and without even touching physically or speaking, they look into each other’s eyes and understand that they have an intense mutual attract to each other’s maleness and that an hour or so after dinner they will be in bed sharing hot sweaty ecstatic man-to-man sex = EXTREMELY GAY

      It’s that recognition of mutual homosexual desire between two men that makes a situation “gay”, not the manner in which they’re touching.

      P.S. I might add: Gay dude orally servicing a totally hunky straight dude who isn’t attracted to him and is just enjoying a blowjob that he doesn’t have to pay for while closing his eyes and thinking about women = NOT GAY, JUST KINDA PATHETIC AND SELF-LOATHING AND IMPLICITLY HOMOPHOBIC

      I think that these photographs are absolutely beautiful, and depict a degree of intimacy seldom seen in daily life. I also agree with Throbert McGee that a great many straight men will enjoy being orally serviced by another man. In fact, Craigslist provides so many examples that I seriously believe that more than 10% of the male population has had sex with other members of the male population, notwithstanding the fact that most of these men do not self-identify as gay.

      It is possible to enjoy extreme intimacy without any physical touching whatsoever. A look can convey more emotions than any degree of physical sexual connectedness.

      It is also possible for physical touching to mean absolutely nothing sexual, despite the fact that the participants genitals may be touching, as in the examples of Greco-Roman wrestlers.
