Models Are The New Porn Stars

Behold Edilson Nascimento. If you read gay blogs, as you obviously do, you've seen this Brazilian bombshell just about everywhere. Edilson is exhibit "A" in my argument that "legit" models have replaced porn stars in the pantheon of gay culture. He's a fashion model, but he is almost always nude, or close to it. What is he selling in these pictures? The couture or his own perfectly formed chest? Are you looking at the swim trunks, or his clearly delineated genitalia? In the past it has always been the accepted wisdom that the model is there to show off the clothes. Nowadays the clothes are almost irrelevant, sometimes non-existent. I'm not complaining. I'm just saying.

I have to say that "Oh La La Mag" is a terrific name for a magazine like that! :)

An interesting hypothesis, Vera!
But several additional examples will be needed in order to come to an informed conclusion.
