Recently, a friend of ours turned us on to Skiinmode, a “portfolio service” from Bangkok, Thailand whose pictures of Asian men combine scintillating sexiness and superhero style. We’ve picked out ten of their sexiest shots so you can die of thirst alongside us.
As a portfolio service, Skiinmode takes professional pictures of male models that models can use to show off their chops. While most portfolio services will take standard fashion magazine shots, Skiinmode styles their men as distinctly Asian superheroes out of pop-culture series like Final Fantasy, Power Rangers and even Pokémon.
Part of the reason we love their shots so much (apart from the fact that they’re mega hot) is because they’re a recent example of photo projects that are reclaiming male Asian sexiness. As we’ve said before, American pop-culture has long depicted Asian men as under-sexed nerds, but projects like WolfeGuys’ black-and-white photos of Asian men, Teddy Tzeng’s “Candy Crush” series and Buzzfeed’s recreation of iconic underwear ads with normal bodied Asian men are opening eyes and minds to the Asian persuasion.
So let’s take a second to admire Skiinmode’s incredibly sexy photos below.
