Pussy Whipped

One question that I get asked time and time again with regards to IMA's content is, "Why the shortage of male eye candy?" I've often ruminated over this perplexing question myself ;-) and have come to the following conclusions; my area of expertise and knowledge is stronger within the female domain of modelling, the process of transformation with female beauty is more intriguing to me, modelling is one of the few industries where women are allowed greater opportunities for advancement then their male counterparts so why not celebrate it, and finally, I don't have at my disposal the time or resources to devote to covering both the male and female aspects of modelling. Every now and then however, an editorial pops up where the focus is on male models which I feel warrants being shared with IMA's readership. This month, Out Magazine features a magnificent display of male modelling talent in the editorial "Pussy Riot". Top models RJ King, Garrett Neff, Ronald Epps, Chad White, Ben Allen, Travis Smith, Da Nae, and Matt Woodhouse are almost upstaged by a cast of super cute feline friends while posing for photographer Giampaolo Sgura. The clean crisp studio shots are enhanced by en pointe styling courtesy of Fashion Editor Grant Woolhead with the models showcasing smart tailored suits and casual looks by Calvin Klein Collection, Prada, Versace, Hermés, and Dior Homme. The dynamic between male model and the cast of adorable kittens make for a series of intimate and visually striking portraits which are impossible to resist.
