Take note of the word “take off”…it’s not hyphenated, hence, Thai-Danish champion car racer Jack Lemvard literally takes off in the latest issue of Need+ Magazine, another take note, it’s not just a magazine…it’s a magazine targeting mainly the gay market.
As a celebrity (it the sports field at least), one may ask: “Why did Jack do it?”. To be honest, I really dunno. BUT, there’s a thing called “attention-getter” and another one called “attention-seeker”. Which one it is? Again, I’ll leave that thing to you.
This was not the first time that a Thai sportsman posed for such magazine. Way, way , way back 2003, boxing champion Sirimongkol Singwancha was convicted of producing pornography after his full-frontal naked photos surfaced in the gay magazine, “Heat”. According to him, he posed for it “fun” of the photographer’s private viewing which were taken ten years ago and the nude ones weren’t supposed to be published. ‘Twas until two years after that it became sensationalized (no funpun intended) when the police raided a news stand in Chatuchak selling these naughty mags. Read the full details from fellow blogger Bkkdreamer and be cautioned with the covered nude photos in it.
History repeats itself…twice! Just last year, 2004 Olympics Silver Medalist (Boxing Bantam Class) Worapoj Petchkoom agreed to pose in skimpy undies and later found out that he was tricked! According to him, “Stage” (another magazine catering the same gay market) said to him that they are doing this shoot in his “honor” for the magazine’s anniversary issue. The verdict from the boxing association: poor Worapoj was banned for three months.
Now, who wants to bet on my fifty sethang that sooner or later, Jack Lemvard will ask the the public’s sympathy that like the other two boxers, he was also deceived to shoot in very skimpy, flimsy, wet undies??? Believe it or not, the two photos above and the other photos that you will see in the below gallery are NOTHING compared to those that I opted not to publish here as I find those really too Rated R.
Some photos are meant to be sexy. Some are meant to be artistic. Given the right concept and medium. As for the 25-year old Jack Lemvard’s photo shoot in this mag, c’mon Jack—we were not born yesterday! Just don’t go out in public one day and ask for everyone’s sympathy as we have seen it all before! So passe (how can I put a stress mark on top of the letter “e” here???)! But if posing for undies or swimming trunks is your newly found career now, then this calls for your new sponsors. Then of course, I rest my case.
