I don't recall ever seeing photographs of men in bizarre poses like this.
It's a fantasy and it irritates the hell out of me. In part because photos like this tend to represent women as ethereal creatures, rather like fairies (many even add wings) or angels, unaware of normal human comfort and unattached to the ordinary things. They are always clothed in romantic dress, as if their lot in life is to look beautiful.
I realize it's beautifully photographed. Tough.
