Probably no little boy after 1950 thought of running away from home to join the circus…unless the boy was gay and the circus was full of naked men. Photographer Errikos Andreou brings our three-ring fantasies to life with an erotic photo essay of naked boys ready for their high wire act. You bet we’d cram ourselves into a clown with the sexy lot of ‘em.
Shot in moody black and white and distressed around the ages, they give the sexy impression that they were taken in the late 1800s heyday of P.T. Barnum. How marvelous it would be to travel back in time for a piece of all-male performance erotica. Frankly, someone needs to invent such a show today. Cirque du Soleil may have “Zumanity,” but our vision is something as elaborate, but completely male. Our human cannonballs are already shooting.
Of course the main question is, which one of these boys is the real Big Top? (Tah-dah!)
