This is super cool.

I have an immediate distrust of photographers whose only subjects are themselves -- but this is a freaky cool idea. I love the vulnerability in these pictures.

All the people he's posing with look thoroughly pissed off at the lack of sex. Except the cute ones, and then the photographer looks pissed off.

It's fun to try and guess which photos are supposed to be the 'before' and which ones are 'after'.

All in all, a very well done photo series.

Interesting concepts and pics. One of the guys looked very familiar, dying to ask him if he did pose for this.

Quietly poignant stuff, cheers.

This is good photography. A few of them are NSFW, more surprising is the fact that most of them are.

Yeah, I know what you mean. The fact that Miyagi created the series as a way of overcoming his shyness and hesitance about his sexuality seems to give the pics a softer emphasis that's really kinda sweet.

"To be naked with someone without having intercourse is weird."

Really? I don't neccessarily think so.

Kinda sounds like the guy thinks it's weird to take someone's picture without having intercourse, too...

Wow, sex is really boring. Glad I never wasted any time on that.

There's a slight shelterporn angle to this project that makes smile a little.

I love these. Thanks.
