Moving House


Chez Vera is moving, not in the virtual world, but in real life, so I am busy, busy, busy packing my life into cardboard boxes.  I'm not sure when I will have home internet installed, so expect updates to be infrequent for the next few weeks. 

These pictures have nothing to do with anything. Enjoy.

Cruising Down The River

A few days ago Paddy Mitchell posted this picture of himself on Instagram being all effortlessly gorgeous.

Jordan Gets Sexy(er)


It's Jordan Ver Hoeve again, just a month out of high school and posing for his most blatantly sexual photo shoot to date.  Here photographer Joseph Lally treats us to underwear shots:









He teases us with suggested nudity:



Then he knocks the breath out of us with facial close-ups of sheer unadulterated beauty.  Just look at those eyelashes. Dear God! 






Meanwhile, young Jordan, a real person after all, and not just the highly sexualized object d'art we see here,  takes to social media to say how much he misses his girlfriend from back home.  The heart flutters and bleeds.  It's all too much to bear.

Meet Richard

Photo by Andrew Bowan
One of the nice things that sometimes happen when you run a blog is that people will write to you and ask you to have a look at their blog.  Such was the case last week when a handsome young man named Richard Whitney wrote to introduce me to his blog, Some Model Perceptions.   Richard's avocation is erotic modelling , and he has a nice collection of artistic nudes of himself which you are sure to enjoy, but there's more going on than just that.  He is an intelligent and well-educated young man, and his blog posts about art, erotica, and queer culture are thoughtful and interesting reads. His recent post regarding the Bel Ami studios is a fascinating read. I suggest you go there right now.

Olly!






Your Auntie Vera first called your attention to the curly-haired, baby-faced, whippet-thin bit of gap-toothed British adorableness known as Olly Alexander way back in 2009.  Remember him? Probably not, if you are American, because even though he has never stopped working, almost none of his work, mostly small independent movies, has made it across the Atlantic.  His one big Hollywood movie was the mega-bomb Jack Black vehicle Gulliver's Travels.  He has worked on the stage, and done TV- notably the seventh series of Skins, and a story arc as a vampire in Showtime's Penny Dreadful.  He also is the lead singer of the band Years and Years, who are responsible for this song that I truly love.

I bring this up now because the trailer for his new film God Help The Girl, a musical, was released last week, and although I don't think there's a snowball's chance in Hell that it will be anything like "a hit" by the standards of commercial cinema, it seems that it will be released in America, and from the looks of things it could be downright adorable. At 24 years of age, Olly is still just as lovely as always, and it seems that French hotness Pierre Boulanger,  star of the 2003 film Monsieur Ibrahim (Remember that? I sure do.) is in it too. God Help The Girl is set for a September release, and will probably be available for viewing here in Iowa sometime in 2018.  Looking forward to it.
