  1. Invitation

    Step into a pantheon of Gods and Men in a world of endless fascination: a never-ending journey to discover the exquisite beauty of the Male Form; a towering shrine to worship the rugged masculinity of the Male Body; and breathless moments of wonder at Manhood. From the sublime allure of male models to the red-hot eroticism of nude and hard hunks, AdonisMale is truly meant to be one of the premier free destinations of homoerotic pleasure and male admiration. This is an open invitation to expand and explore this world together, where we find and share the most stunning images of men. Our goal is to be a free gay community showcasing the most awesome and awe-inspiring images of man -- from dimpled and flirtatious twinks to ripped bodybuilders, from horny college fratboys to toned athletic jocks, from handsome and dapper fashion models to rock-hard naked studs with throbbing erections.

  4. Commitment

    Commitment to Quality It is the guiding philosophy that all pictures and images presented herein adhere to high standards.  We are committed to only showing you the highest quality of pictures, hand-picked and filtered by human eyes, so that the surviving pictures and photo sets are the very best in a diverse variety of themes, models, and albums. Commitment to Technical Quality The images undergo multiple rounds of programmed and manual sorting and filtering to ensure that degradation of quality (eg. fuzziness, borders, pixelation, intrusive logos) are sifted out.  Technical picture guidelines for the Main Gallery: Minimum file size >= 50 KB Pixel dimension >= 500 pixels Commitment to Non-Discrimination We recognize the richness and vibrancy that comes with being a diverse community, and we are committed to welcoming all members to add to the fabric of our community.  We are especially committed to equality in regards to gender, race, and sexual orientation.  
  5. Partnership

    Partnership Structure What makes AdonisMale unique among free gay communities is our structure of Partnership -- a joint effort among volunteer archivists to collectively share our hand-picked, personal pictures. What started out as a small project five years ago among two people has grown into one of the world's largest online archives of gay and homoerotic content in an award-winning site.  Over the years, we've been humbled and exhilarated by multiple selfless volunteers donating their comprehensive collection of photos to the website's archives and galleries, adding to our overall efforts to be one of the world's best free resources of homoerotic photography. The partnership idea is embedded into the very DNA of our website, from the joint effort of thousands of members who foster a welcoming and friendly community to the leadership of the partners who curate our renown galleries.   Partnership Goals The Sum is Greater Than the Parts.  We  believe that by working together, and directing our individual efforts into a unified endeavor, we will accomplish far more than what we can do alone.   Sharing is Caring.  Although most of us initially amassed a private collection for our own viewing, we've come to the realization that some photography is too good to be locked away and deserves to be shared for the enjoyment of all. More is Better.  We strive to become a leading resource on the web through not only quality, but by our sheer size and unmatched resources of photogalleries and documentation. Preservation of the Past.  We serve as stewards of homoerotic photography, by carefully saving, documenting, organizing, and presenting the information on behalf of future generations. Who We Are Over the years, we've had the following real-world people serve as Partners: housewife, electrical engineer, school principal, retirees, and an accountant.  We live on 3 different continents. What we realize, however, is that we're not defined by where we came from, but by what we want to build together.   Join the Partnership The future of the website, our resources, and our community depends upon the selfless endeavor of our next Partner.  We invite you to join our Partnership.   Suggestions.  While there are no requirements to become a Partner, you should be honest and comfortable with the following: You enjoy the community - You should extensively investigate and converse with the broader membership to ensure this is a community that you should enjoy serving and working in.  We're pretty friendly .   You're in it for the long term - You can commit to a long-term project over many months and many years, with the recognition that building a definitive resource will span a tremendous amount of time and effort. You're okay with tedious work -  You don't mind tedious, painstakingly menial tasks like countless uploading, editing file descriptions, or writing repetitive resources.  You should enjoy detail-oriented work and organizing.   Next Step.  The next step is on you, and we hope is the first of many steps you'll take with the AdonisMale Partnership.  Contact @JoelR to begin a conversation.
