Check out this great review of the Cockyboys photography bookA Thing of Beauty‘ from Philadelphia Gay News:

Big, bold and — truth in titling — very beautiful, “A Thing of Beauty” is a gorgeous coffee-table book of erotic photography featuring the CockyBoys. The crisp, bright, artfully composed images are sensual, seductive and playful. Sebastian masterfully captures episodes of intimacy that tease or excite — especially in the way some of the models look at the camera, almost daring the viewer to look back at them.

The guys, seen in various states of undress, are a mix of younger and older, tattooed and hairy; they are alone, in couples or in a group. Their un-self-conscious poses are appealing. The impression readers get is that of a celebration of gay-male sexuality, not something prurient, though there certainly are some explicit pictures. As for the text, Jaxson outlines his “rules” for being a CockyBoy and includes an essay on the company, as well as behind-the-scenes reports on several CockyBoy productions.

But the main interest will be the photographs and stills from the CockyBoys’ webseries, “A Thing of Beauty.” This lavish volume should appeal to discerning connoisseurs of erotic photography. It deserves to be on display on the coffee tables or in the bedrooms of Rehoboth and Fire Island beach houses.
