I know that a lot of people might not understand why a heterosexual woman would be so interested in reading m/m romance. And though it's gaining popularity in spades, it's still a mystery to some. I think for me it's just that there are a lot of truly amazing stories and ridiculously talented writers producing m/m! And, quite frankly, men together are hot...and also beautiful...and also powerful...and because of a very devout/strict/stifling past growing up, also very liberating for me to behold

The pictures by Jake & RJ are amazing. I follow them anyway and have to say that these pictures capture much more than beautiful men, they seem to capture their souls. And Jakes words? Always wise and touching. The inside front flap "To Be A CockyBoy" and their message to their partner Benny, especially so! Is a picture book supposed to make you cry? It did me.

It's special, like they are. These men give everything they get.

It was beautiful !! And not at all what I was expecting.

It was tender and moving and just glorious. I figured it was going to just be filled with typical graphic porno shots.

I can see why this book is titled "A

QUIRKY, SEXY AND WONDERFULLY COCKY!
This is one gorgeous book! Filled with about 100 full page color photos (and lots of smaller snaps) of the beautiful CockyBoys, featuring the sexy and loveable lads during and also away from their awesome film activities. And as you would expect from such a film company, there are stacks of nude shots plus erections and sexual interludes but all done with class and artistry.
There is a very interesting introduction by Kevin Clarke detailing the creation and suc

Nothing about Jake Jaxson, RJ Sebastian or their company Cockyboys is ordinary, and this exquisite photobook is certainly no exception. RJ's stunningly beautiful images showcase his tremendous talent, and coupled with Jake's emotional commentary of their journey thus far make this book truly 'A Thing of Beauty'.
For anyone who enjoys male nudity and art- this book is definitely for you! A book that you can treasure for a lifetime. And hopefully the first of many more RJ Sebastian photobooks to co
