This is a highly erotic, though never pornographic, photo album of the French national rugby team in a variety of candid and posed nude locker room shots. The men are gorgeous, the atmosphere is highly homoerotic though it would probably appeal to women as well and the quality of the printing and composition place it far above any other 'beefcake' book I've seen. Many of the photos would be work as 'sensitive' straight images, however, the photos of men embracing or simply looking at each other and a few of the more sexually inviting poses are extremely intense. The level of honesty on the part of both photographer and subjects is exceptional--it is very hard to imagine an American football team being willing to show so much in all senses of the phrase. The book seems to have vastly in creased attendance at the team's games--I'd certainly go to see them if I could, in the mean time, this book is a great second-best. The photographer captured the essence of manhood and, at the same time, the personality and vulnerability of these athletes in the nude.
