In 1965,Tom of Finlandbegan flirting with the idea of an ongoing character for his panel stories, the ultimate Tom’s Man. He tried out a blond named Vicky—a common male name in Finland—followed by a Tarzan-inspired Jack. Then in 1968 Tom settled on Kake, a dark-haired, mustached leatherman who often wore a tight white t-shirt bearing the motto “Fucker.” Kake lived up to th ...more

Men, men , men, men and once again men are main heroes of short stories...how surprising...how good. Carefree Kake was roaming earth and fucked and getting fucked by various men. Yes all of them are muscled and had perfect posterior and looooooong you know what...of course mustache is included. It was fun to list that book. I think most macho gays should own the copy...aka... fashion adviser for "having fun" occasions.

Matimate recently reviewed a Tom of Finland book here. I knew of Tom of Finland because one of the Kake comics is featured in Erotica Universalis, although I can't remember if it was volume one or two. Anyway, I decided that it was high time that I reacquainted myself with the brawny, extraordinarily well endowed, promiscuous man and I wasn't disappointed.

I would recommend this book to anyone who likes very masculine men in uniform getting it on with other men. Plenty of kinks are catered for to

I loved this. Super-hot at times, super-funny (unintentionally but in a good way) in others. For the right person or the right mood, this book can be gut-busting or nut-busting.

Here's the thing: especially if you read it all at once, the book is repetitive. It's basically threesome after threesome after threesome. The frames of each guy are practically identical: built, jacked, big-butted, strong-jawed, brawny guys (props for some diversity though). I do have to say I loved how this super-erotic

Frankly I cannot even articulate any sort of objective opinion here because Tom of Finland draws my absolute erotic ideal, constantly, and the fact that eroticized narrative always serves to heighten my lust, I have no complaints. Great, fucking hot stuff.

Ok so technically I have the hard cover edition. This 30-something dollar impulse buy has actually been a great ice-breaker. The material is nicely presented; gotta love those classy folks over at Taschen. If you're a fan of ToF, this one is an absolute must.

Recommends it for: anyone who's interested in gay male fantasy porn
Page after page after page of great big brawny rough men having sex in one form or another. Tom of Finland was a great artist but he drew men as caricatures, not how they really are. All his men have short, stubby little noses, a strong square jaw, and massive muscles and genitals. He didn't vary their facial features, so they all pretty much look alike.

Touko Laaksonen (8 May 1920 – 7 November 1991), best known by his pseudonym Tom of Finland, is often said to be the most famous Finnish artist in the world. His highly stylized homoerotic drawings had a profound influence on late twentieth century gay culture, as well as fashion and pop culture in general. He has been called the "most influential creator of gay pornographic images" by cultural his ...more
