I do not understand Italian men ... prefer the Sophia Lorens .... laughs
But I know that if you want to find beautiful people in italy, men or women, the address is Via Condotti in Rome. When I was there backpack and jeans, I felt like a beggar on this street ...
a good holiday for you
Nice capture, nice composition.

Do we call a female a gigola? :-)
Another really good shot from this location with the rich and warm oclor wall. His complementary color fashion in mostly blue really works well against the warm orange tone, it also match well with the bleu of the pipe and the stripe about the window.
In reality, I think men are as vain and want to be beautiful, except that women through the years has outdone us, and therefore become a way of life and society has excepted that way. In animal world, the male are always the prettier one, birds, lions, fishes, lizards...for examples, so we can be sexy for the female, to seduce them...wouldn't you like that? You can tell Benno to be more sexy for you, I have a feeling he won't like me very much after what I said, LOL.
Current discussion:baba_flies wrote in 2012/05/02 11:38:05: I would add two "ll" GigoLLa ... LOL ... hm more sexy for me, huh? What do I want? Okay not THIS in my photo, this is slightly overdone. I guess it is not the aftershave that really makes me that crazy but a little gigolo attack in the sense "through the lines", it goes non-verbal and just happens. Okay, a piercing maybe ... LOL .... I hope he does not read this ... psssssssst.
perhaps we should say that the photographer was so good to capturing the intense gaze of this young man and put it in a nice photographic composition!!! The Gigolo are now an extinct race, and women are less susceptible to the charms of professional Gigolo. Seeing the clip of David Lee Roth that you have linked, I also discovered this irreverent version, also by David Lee Roth, absolutely fantastic, that reminded me of this scene of the musical The Rocky Horror Picture Show, even if in that case the Gigolo was a trans. Brava, dear friend, as always you have posted a pleasant and interesting photo!
Ciao, have a nice evening!
I owe you a thank you mail and I promise to get to it soon! We had such fun last Sunday and mom can't stop talking about it! :-)
Say hi to B! Big hugs,
I don't know if I'd call him a gigolo but maybe a heart-braker and very confident young man...Common! look at his confidence at his gesture, he's certainly waiting for some beautiful young italian lady... lol
I like the combination of strong, saturated colors, makes it very young and sets the mood well for this photo.
