It easy to understand why. Franco's paintings are gorgeous, glamorous, and blazingly erotic fantasies. The men are stunning. Franco pays tribute to actor Colton Haynes and recasts some of the world's most beautiful male models in lusciously debauched scenarios.

Franco’s men cavort in dreamily decadent worlds, often in historically referenced settings and attire. Regardless if its bullfighters, Roman soldiers, or bewigged and lipsticked couples enjoying a little 18th century cosplay, the sex is hot, explicit and beautifully portrayed.
