About me

Occupation Dandy
Location Los Angeles, CA, United States
Introduction This blog is devoted to exploring what I have termed "aesthetisexuality," which, briefly put, is Dandyism as a sexual orientation. Some favored topics are and will be gendered aesthetics, the meanings of vanity, body as canvas, form as function, and blurring the lines of queerness. And body hair. I find the gendered treatment of body hair totally fascinating.
