A quiet photo of two soldiers in a makeshift barber station somewhere in the Pacific (or possibly in South Korea), ca. late 1940s - early 1950s. Sometimes the simplest images convey the sweetest eroticism, even (or perhaps especially) when the people involved are just going about their daily business.

It doesn't seem all that erotic to me, just like a normal haircut. Unless I haven't been paying attention and my haircuts have been more erotic than I thought....

But how often are both you and your barber shirtless?

Alex, take a look at some of Steve Zeeland's comments about haircuts and military guys. This image may not be specifically erotic, but I see some masculine tenderness in it.
