Michael Hoffman, contemporary physique model

Self Portraits 
Michael Hoffman 
Houston Texas, circa 2012-2016





Russian born, American adopted and raised, exceptionally handsome and easily sexual, Michael Hoffman is likely the most notorious amateur queer trade model at present.  I don’t resent him flirting with gays and queers one bit.  Whatever his sexuality is, It is what he says it is, and it’s fun watching him work it out through his videos and other pictures.  I especially like the pose next to the Eureka Vacuum Cleaner and the patriotic pictures with the purple vibrator massaging his sphincter.
