Many of the models in the book are nothing like the cover model. There are also goth, tattooed, emo and androgynous guys here as well. In addition, some of the photos are body part details, not whole persons. I estimate that the exceptions are --less than 10% of the book, however.

Not all of the shots are explicit, there are a lot of fully or partially clothed pictures or photos that focus on one part of the body like a face or torso that are really artistic and actually quite beautiful. The pictures are featured in collections by photographer and while some artists were more to my taste than others I think they all had something unique to add to the collection.
This book is a celebration of the male body and all the many forms it comes in and I have no doubt that there is enough variety included to keep anyone coming back for more.
It also shows all the different photographers ideas of how to handle the male frame both clothed, semi clothed to nude, their interpretation is very interesting, but I wouldn't say this is a voyeur book. This book is for people interested in photography and especially photography of the male body/form.
