Close up shot of a beautiful mans chin

“The singular point of beautiful objects, and people, is that they are experienced not as parts, or ratios between cheekbones and chin, but as wholes. The experience of beauty is a perception, but it is one that mixes up various other sensations and makes them converge in a particular way.” ~ Charles Jencks

We always tend to think of women when we use the word beauty or beautiful but I think that is the result of women’s value being so focus on how they look not who and what they are rather than on any actual truths. Men are beautiful too, just in a different way. For me their beauty is in their masculinity and the contrast between their body and mine. I look at this image of him and I see something beautiful, the soft curve of his lips that meet mine in a kiss, the rough texture of his stubble so different my own skin and the shape of his chin that I trace with my fingers when we are together in our bed at night. Beauty is not confined to the female form but can be found in all of us no matter what our gender.
