SONG OF THE WEEK :

The song that's in rotation this week is "When Will It Be" performed by Howard Hewett and Anita Baker from the album Howard Hewett.

The album came out in 1990, however the message of that particular song is so relevant to this day and age.

The lyrics begin with

           When will it be

           a world color free

           Whenever we try.

           Tell me when will it be

           We all live equally

           I'm willing

           I'm willing to try....


I grew up on R& B music so I know I may feel the melody, rhythm, and arrangement different than someone who grew up listening to rock or any other genre of music.  But one thing that is universal is the power of the message and the passion that's felt in their voices.

With everything's that's going on not just in Paris, not just in the US, but all over the world, there is a definite need to listen; not just to a song, but to each other.  Although not much will change, it is good  to know there are some with a positive message.

The song of the week will be available for this week.  I hope you enjoy.
Ciao for now !

Sexy In White


Sexy Young Man With a great smile I had the pleasure of capturing on camera.






I Just love a sexy man in Tighty Whiteys but this you already know ! :-)


                                  The smug grin comes before informing me he was pretty limber
                                              Of course I wanted him to test this declaration out.




                        The sigh of relief as he unbends. I caught his facial expression just in time.
                                                         A sheer delight to my eyes.

Off The Market


It's been quite awhile.  For the first time in about two months I'm lying in bed with my note pad, putting my thoughts down for my blog.  It feels good to be writing again but to be honest, it's not like something I totally missed.  What I missed most is the camaraderie of my fellow bloggers.

But as of late my attention has been more focused on my family. 

I could share some stories about some of my latest escapades (which I probably will In the future.)  But as of now my focus is on spending quality time with my man.  It's time to get back to having dinner ready when he gets home from work.  Yes I wear the apron and it fits quite nice. lol  

 I'm ready for us to share about our work days over dinner, turn on the boob tube and just enjoy each others' presence. 

As for posting, I could create some hot erotic fiction of some fantasy I had for you to get off to, but I'd prefer to keep my writing as close to my real life experiences as possible.  So long story short.......I don't have much for you now.  I figure if I don't have anything to say, why post?

I did have two recent photo shoots in which I'm editing for the blog so stay tuned. 

Its time for me to visit my favorite blogs and comment and chat with my buddies.  But again after awhile, consuming all the countless naked men and gay sex on the net just makes me numb to it all. 


Sex can be a very healthy part of our lives and erotica is a good way to stimulate your mind as well as the bulge in your drawers.

But over stimulation makes it boring and that high that you get isn't there anymore, hence the reason why I'm posting some of my non erotic work as well.  I'm not just a sexual being.  I'm a being.  That is part of what The Male Casting Couch is to me as well.
Maybe some day I might post about my hook up with this cute submissive white guy who got on his knees and took every drop he could from me.  Yes there is the sex party in San Francisco I attended where the fun seemingly didn't end.  There is the creepy guy that came over that will never come back again.  As hot as these stories may seem (well, with the exception of the creepy guy story)  they all play a factor to me taking myself off the market.

It all comes down to the 80/20 rule thing.  You have a partner that will never fulfill 100% of your wants or needs.  At most he or she will provide 80%.  But then someone comes along and have the other 20% that's been missing.  Often times we are ecstatic that we found someone with that 20% only to discover that all that person has to offer is that 20%.  


Meeting this person and hooking up with that person has made me SO content with my 80% at home.  So does this mean I'm closing the relationship to total monogamy? I never considered myself totally monogamous And I've always been up front about that.  But what has happened or what is happening is that I am finding contentment with the one I love.  The idea to go out and find satisfaction elsewhere just isn't appealing to me as much.  



The intimacy that has been built in the last 11 to 12 years can not be matched in 30 minutes, an hour or a night. And to be honest most of the guys out there have shown what they're about.....and it ain't much!


So for Now The Scruffy Black Guy is on semi retirement with an occasional juicy story POSSIBLY.  That means no ass but the ass that's waiting for me when I get home and as for now The Boss has made it clear that what happens behind closed doors stays there, so no juicy stories there. 

But I'm sure I will be doing some sexy photo shoots in the future but for now.............


Ciao

GOING AWAY FOR AWHILE

I will be away for awhile. I won't be posting anything for a few weeks. I will be out of town and away from my material. I will attempt to keep in contact with my fellow bloggers through commenting on their blog posts depending how well my ghetto phone will allow me.  It's a bitter sweet trip. Bitter because I will be taking care of a friend that has fallen ill; Sweet because he is doing much better than 
before. And we will get to see each other and catch up on old times and make new ones.

To my blogging buddies; (you know who you are) I will try to keep in touch.
To all the new comers to my blog, check out my previous posts. Go to my archives and enjoy! 
To the fans and fanettes; Archives Archives Archives ! Go back enjoy the work of the men of the Couch .

A special shout out to my favorite Uncle. You are in my prayers.
Get well UB !


Ciao for now

Mark

A GREAT MORNING MOMENT



This was on my camping trip some years back with some friends.  Way before everyone woke up, I took a nice walk with my camera and this is what I got to see.

BLACK LOVE

Her naked skin is as rich as dark chocolate.
She slowly kneels before me.
She looks up at me
with those beautiful brown eyes.

Humbled by her position
she looks up at me hungry for a taste.
How much longer must she wait?

Obedient yet eager
she unbuckles the belt
at my command.

Hands behind your back.
Open your mouth.

For my pleasure and for hers
she taste the saltiness of my girth.

Every thrust in her mouth
brings to me the pleasure of
dominance and delight.

Ebony inside of ebony
the mirror reflects
the manifestation of
black love.

MY BLOG:
WHY I DO WHAT I DO

First of all, Do not be fooled by the title. I don't claim to have the key to building a successful blog.  Nor am I giving advice on how to do so.  This is just an account on how I started my blog and what works for me.

First thing for me was to discover why I wanted to start an erotic blog.
I guess the easiest answer is : I LOVE ASS!
But beyond me loving some male booty, I really do enjoy being able to express my erotic feelings without the hassle of judgement of those more inhibited than myself.

We spend a large portion of our time in an environment that forces us to suppress our sexual feelings; whether it be at work, school, with family or certain friends, etc.  It feels good to be able to connect with others such as myself and let loose.


 Being an artist, blogging is a great way to build a fan base and share my work with others who enjoy erotica.  It's also great to see the work of other photographers, artists, writers and bloggers.  Being a fan is just as fun as having them!


How it all began:


I started taking photography classes back in 2000.  Back then film classes were still being offered so I took a few.  My work consisted of stills, portraits and some photojournalism. 

Our college class had so many hot guys in it.  I would often fantasize about seeing these young guys naked.  One day in the dark room, there was this young guy in his early twenties.  He was a very cute Latin guy with smooth, dark brown skin.  Like most of 
the guys his age, he had his pants sagging pretty much to the point 
that you can see the shape of his ass through his undies.  I remember being so turned on watching him, I had to walk around the room with something in front of my crotch so no one would see my erection.  It was during that time I started to integrate my love for the male body with my passion for photography.


The Male Casting Couch :

In July of 2014, I began working on various ways to get my images noticed.  I began my blog The Male Casting Couch.

I wanted it to be more than just a blog of my pictures.  My whole idea was to create dialog between me and my viewers.  Later I added a series of short stories of past encounters titled TALES OF MY MISCHIEVOUS THIRTIES  which has turned out to become my most popular set of posts.

Just recently I added another series of stories.  These are more current encounters titled  CHRONICLES OF THE SCRUFFY BLACK GUY .


Model search:

 Being unaware of how to go about finding models, I did some online research and found a few sites to post adds for male models.
Back in the day Craigslist was a very good source to find guys who would pose.  Later I discovered Modelmayhem.com.  It is a online community for photographers, models and other artists to network. 

Often when I was getting to know guys on the hook up sites, they would ask about some of my hobbies and interests which opened up opportunities to get guys into modeling for me.

Straight or Gay :

I find it much easier to work with gay male models than straight.  Some of this has to do with the sexual chemistry we share together.  Often the sexual tension between the photographer and the muse can create some of the most hot images.  Also, I love to flirt and I love to express how hot my model is.  It makes him feel sexy, gets him in a very frisky mood and brings out that side of him that I want to capture on cam.  Straight guys are a little more inhibited.  Although that's not always the case.  There are plenty of straight guys that don't mind you drooling over them, even squeezing a butt cheek every now and then. :-) Which leads me to my next subject :

Hands off Policy :

I treat my hobby very much like a business.  One of my policies have always been my "hands off policy" in which I don't ever touch my model unless given permission.  Yes there is often sexual tension and flirting but I try to keep it as professional as possible yet still fun.

I want my models to be very comfortable with me.  They come in with an understanding that I am hiring them for their erotic images and nothing else.  Usually after the first or second photo shoot we are on a friend basis more than a business one.  

Also I learned that you don't get as many shots when your fucking around.  Times before I said, "WOW I had a great photo shoot," only to discover that I did more "shooting" than I did shooting. So No touchy feely until AFTER the shoot and unless I'm Buddies with the subject, I usually don't initiate. 

Just as a side note but a VERY important one; I always try to get a model release for all my models allowing me to use their images online as well as document their legal age at the time of the shoot.

There is only one person that I don't have a model release for due to the fact we work on a Time For Print / Time For Image basis (TFP). But I limit my Time For Print jobs.  I would rather pay for someone's time and know I have images I can use than do a TFP only for the subject to change his mind.  Then legally I'm stuck with a bunch of pictures that only I  can see and that's not what I'd want.


Stayin' Alive :

It is very challenging to stay alive in this blogosphere.  With Google's ever changing policies you never know if or when they will pull the plug on you.  So I decided to make my blog about my photography and my writings so that no one can ever say that I'm violating copyright laws.

Also If I have any videos that I post, I make sure to post them on a platform that accepts adult material.  I just recently got my You Tube account suspended even though I had everything private.

Network:

The last thing, once I got all the technical bullshit out of the way, I Networked my ass off.  Back in 07 I started a blog that went nowhere for two years.  For two years I had a total of 68 visitors.  I thought, "Just post and post and post some more.  Surely they will come!"  Never happened. 

From my experience, and I can only speak from my experience, networking is the only way to get others to your site.  Comment, on others' posts.  Make blog buddies.  Create a blog roll that consist of blogs that you enjoy and also your followers will enjoy.  When fellow bloggers see that you take interest in what they are doing they will take interest in what you are doing and add you to their blogrolls.

My goal for 2016 is not only to gain more followers for the year, but also to open up more dialog between the viewers.   

I look forward to hearing from you guys especially on this one. People have often messaged me about what the photographer's process is.  So I hope I  was able to give a little insight on what we do and how.

THANK YOU UNCLE B !

For all of you who know Uncle Barry, he messaged a few of us stating that he's still very weak but doing better.  Not quite sure what was going on, but we want to thank you for keeping us informed.  We hope you feel better. We miss your humor and wit that you bring to the blogosphere.

Take care of my favorite Uncle.

We love you. 

Here's some chocolate for you.
