We caught up with GeorgeX for a behind-the-scenes look at his erotic photography of men.
“I’m a photographer who for a long time repressed a lot of my feelings and my sexuality…” explains GeorgeX, when we ask how he got started in erotic photography.
“Growing up in Mexico, I was confused and embarrassed about what I was feeling. My photos are now a form of liberation. I want to use my photography to help normalise the human body. I want to help normalise photos of guys with erections. There’s nothing wrong with erections – they’re totally normal and natural. I want my photography to help to tackle homophobia and discrimination – using the power of sexual and erotic images.”
“As a confused young kid, the first time that I masturbated I remember crying with fear and anguish. Now, it gives me enormous pleasure to have found my voice and to have the freedom to photograph men the way that I want to see them. My camera gives me the confidence and the power to study these men – in their underwear, in sexual positions, with their legs spread, the testicles hanging, drops of pre-cum, their erections, with a dildo pushed inside them. My photography enables me to explore my fantasies – by the end of every session my underwear is wet with pre-cum. That’s now the mission with all of my work – to get people aroused by what they see.”
“It’s the magazines and videos that I masturbated to from a very young age that are what inspire my work today…” explains GeorgeX, when we ask him where he draws his inspiration.
“I’m also a big fan of Marco Berger – a filmmaker from Argentina. There’s also lots of talented guys working here in Mexico – GayEye Alejandro Sánchez, La Taquería de Carlos Cabrera, Eusebio Penha, and Gustavo García-Villa La Más Dolorosa. I’m also a big fan of Spanish talent like Ricardo Silvestre, Cain Q, Paco and Manolo and their magazine Kink, Mano Martínez, Noel Alejandro, and MirciusXposed. They are all my heroes.”
“It’s called Bendito Calzón…” explains GeorgeX, when we ask him about the line of underwear that he’s launched. “It translates to something like Blessed Underwear. Bendito Calzón is a celebration and a voyeuristic tribute to the men of vintage porn that have always inspired me. It’s all about classic masculinity. We have to stop seeing men’s underwear as just something that is there to cover men up. I’ve designed this underwear to keep everything in place and also provide some support, so it gives every guy a good bulge to look at.”
“This is 100 percent Mexican underwear, but it’s designed for men of all shapes and sizes. In the same way that my photography includes all types of guys – muscular, hairy, defined, younger, delicate, thin, shaved. All of them.”
“I have a bit of an underwear fetish. I’m really turned on by guys wearing briefs and high sports socks. I’m obviously not alone in that – lots of guys tell me that they’re turned on by that kind of look.”
