Maybe I'm just sappy, but I think this is about the most beautiful, romantic, tender and erotic photo of men embracing that I've ever seen. No information came with it, but I'm guessing it was shot some time between the 1940s and 50s.

Yeah that's sappy, in a good way.

I seriously enjoy the proliferation of photos of men embracing, kissing, even just the nuzzling, these days. Had there been an opportunity to see the natural beauty of such embraces all those years ago, I wouldn't have had anywhere near the struggle that I had.

Any photo showing men being tender to one another is special. This photo looks recent -- one of the men has an earring.
