It's just the beginning!

In Between Men is a sexy, new dramedy about All- American guys who feel caught between two worlds, not truly knowing where they fit in.

In Between Men follows four friends in NYC who live "in between" a gay world, whose clichés they don't relate to, and a straight world they don't belong to. They are successful, professional men not defined by their sexuality. Through wild adventures, racy storylines, joys and pains, underscored by the pulse of New York City, In Between Men examines the relationships the men have between each other, their lovers, and the greater community.

Almost everyone can relate to not quite fitting in at some point in life.... ENTER to become a fan of In Between Men and tell us,

Fred Goudon: A French Flair

Sometime you like a lot an imagine, but you don't know who is the artist (or the model by the way). My secret pleasure is when I solve one of these little mysteries, like in the case of Fred Goudon and his wonderful shot of Etienne, a nude gay in Paris looking outside his bedroom window... to an arriving lover? I think so.

from Sunday Morning - Etienne

From Sunday Morning

Fred Goudon was born in Cannes in the south of France on june 1st 1965. He studies journalism, worked as a radio DJ and then as a press photographer.

He left Cannes at the end of the 80's to go to Los Angeles, CA, to be a press correspondent for different magazines and newspapers.

It's in Los Angeles that he started doing male model pictures.


The first pictures are not from a published book, but they are studies Fred Goudon is doing on the fascination people have with twins:

In 2000 Fred Goudon published Bedtime Stories: a photo series full of French flair and mood offers the observer a view into the everyday life of attractive young gay men. The photographer creates an intimate portrait which seduces and invites one to dream.

After Fred Goudon's first, very successful photo book "Bedtime Stories" in 2000, Bruno Gmunder published Fred Goudon's second, long-awaited book, Aqua. "La dolce vita" awaits your discovery in this fascinating collection. Beautiful young men full of untamed energy celebrate their lust for life. Alone or in pairs they dive into a sea of sensuality. Goudon is a master of light and shadow, his images show a surprising interplay of masculine forms and movement. Refreshing like a summer rain! After studying journalism in France Fred Goudon worked in the USA as a correspondent for various newspapers and magazines. He also started photographing the male form during this time. Since his return to France, Goudon has been working as a fashion and advertising photographer.

2007 is the time of Sunday Morning. The book for the weekend! With a sure sense of composition style, photographer Fred Goudon gives us a look into the beds of strangers. The artist wraps his stubbly, muscled men in soft colours and gentle contrasts. His portraits are less sexual than they are highly erotic. The soft lighting creates fascinating physical landscapes in the sheets - atmospheric photographs from one of the greatest contemporary French photographers that will make you melt!

Amazon: Sunday Morning

Using the flamboyant France "esprit," Goudon accomplished his works with extraordinary sense of style and composition. In his fourth photobook, Virility, he focuses on twenty-something models. In the midst of staged styled shoots, Goudon also shows everyday scenes of guys dressed in only a towel, enjoying the vista of Saint Tropez, or a cheerful scene of two friends laughing. All that by the author of "AQUA" and the "Dieux Du Stade" Calendar of 2006.

Cinq is the title of the fifth photo book from Fred Goudon. A rather simple title, and yet it already gives you an idea of the elegant Parisian flair, that makes this book something really special. The pictures are staged contained and virtuosic; these men aren't high gloss models, they rather convince with their natural erotic charisma. Goudon perfectly knows how to avoid kitsch; his pictures are intimate, sexy and touching. With CinqA" he created another great volume which makes us want more, more, more. Hopefully number six will be coming up soon.

Cookies by Sarah Black

This is one of the best novella I have ever read, seriously, before anything else, click on the link at the bottom of the page and go and buy it, trust me, you will not be disappointed. It’s funny, sexy, naughty but with a serious undertone that makes everything just perfect.

Kenny Lee and Julio were at cooking school together, but admitedly, Julio was the better of the two; there is a bit of competition between the two of them, but sincerely Julio is too good a guy for Kenny Lee to be angry with him. Julio is tender, caring and a good friend and sometime lover, it’s impossible for Kenny Lee to not fall in love with him, above all since Julio is not even aware of all of that. Kenny Lee on the other hand has a self-esteem issue, he thinks he didn’t match his parents expectation, he is not the best in his field, the best is Julio, and he is not even able to hate him for that. When Julio admits he is depressed and under drugs therapy, the first selfish impulse of Kenny Lee is to be glad, at least Julio has a crack on his shining armour, but then Kenny Lee realizes that Julio is not only a buddy-friend, he is the love of his life and he has to do something to help him: suddenly it’s not more important to excel on Julio, but the purpose of his life will be to dissipate the shadows in Julio’s beautiful eyes.

By the way this novella it’s not only a joy for the heart and the mind but also for all the five senses: the little fights between Julio and Kenny Lee to find the right mix of ingredients for the perfect recipe, their eat, love and sex philosophy, and their ability to recognize their true feelings and what is important in life all of that make this novella a precious little jewel.
