Men-Ups! is a photo series by photographer Rion Sabean that spoofs stereotypical gender roles in a hilarious way. The photographs feature men doing classic pin-up poses that are commonly associated with femininity. These images really make you realize just how ridiculous some of these supposed “sexy” poses are.
Rion is a 26 year old BFA student at the University of South Florida with a focus in photography. In an article on the Huffington Post, Rion says of his series “I hope to have the viewer question their responses and why they feel the reaction that they do, and to associate those feelings with an understanding of societal brainwashing. Mainly, I want my audience to ask two things: why is it considered sexy for a woman to pose in such ways, and why isn’t it sexy for a man to do the same?”
