A sheet of the tentacle-scent stamps, please.

I wonder if I can get any of my Finnish friends to send letters to some up tight religious groups.

Finland, Finland, Finland...
So near to Russia,
So far from Japan,
Quite a long way from Cairo,
Lots of miles from Viet Nam...

I was thinking along the same lines, imagining the Hannity/Limbaugh outrage at seeing something like this at all, let alone in the US.

this isn't real
why would you do that?

And you have to lick the back side to get it wet and sticky for its real purpose.  Freudian.

If the webpage says slightly NSFW, then the headline ought to on Fark. I once got a vacation for putting much less Tom of Finland booty inline than the second postage stamp down.

Incidentally, Finland isn't all that LGBT-friendly of a country.  Same-sex marriage has yet to be legalized and...

It's amazing how fast we've adopted to this new avenue of "America #1" despite the fact that we're still struggling with this stuff. I'd put Finland above most of the US.

Pm me $5.00 per stamp, wear gloves, and no refunds...

The artwork and artist is important. At a time when gays were considered effeminate--his artwork presented a hyper male side to gay life.
 
2014-04-15 12:19:25 AM
Beautiful artwork. Nice ass. If we had better stamps I might collect them--god knows I haven't used them to ma anything in about a decade....

They are surely pissed about the Milk stamp I am sure.

You know your luck with the mods

They tend to be a bit up and down on things like this

BONDAGE?  - only bondage was in the URL...
Tom of Finland was more about leather, cops & sailors (and moustaches & cocks & whatnot)

Is President Obama just going to let Finland take the lead on homoerotic postage? Write your congressperson and demand the USPS create stamps honoring the works of American hero Robert Mapplethorpe.

What is wrong with stamps based on photos of flowers?

just in time for Mother's Day!  thank you, daddy :>

This is just Finland limping in on a small blind.  Japan has got this covered, all in.
You should have raised with your death metal bands, Finland.  Japan would have folded.
 
2014-04-15 02:42:55 AM
1) Never get involved in a land war in Asia.
2) Never go in against a Sicilian when death is on the line.
3) Never under any circumstances challenge Japan to a kink supremacy battle.

I think I love Finland!

This is all fine and well but can someone point me to the heterosexual bondage stamp collections?

There's plenty of bondage/restraint, especially in his early work from the 1950s.

Enemabag Jones: What is wrong with stamps based on photos of flowers?


It's amusing how many places Mapplethorpe's flower portraits (which are uniformly excellent) turn up.

Tom of Finland. (NSFW)

Well that would be sexist.

Unfortunately these will be self-adhesive stickers. (They won't be out until September, I think.)

A good pairing with the new stamps celebrating Tove Jansson, the creator of the Moomin characters, who was publicly lesbian.

Reasons to be a proud (heterosexual, vanilla) Finn, even I'm all against any nationalistic crap.

The guy was highly thought of in many circles, apparently. I remember hearing about his death on Headline News, back when Headline News did news broadcasts.
