As a youth, I always assumed that Jonathan’s pics were part of several series where at the end the participants engaged in some hot gay sex. Needless to say, I was rather miffed when I realised this simply wasn’t true, and even more so when I learned that Jonathan had retired and so the chances of any more explicit sexual drawings in his superb style were nil!
Given how my love of gay porn initially developed, I was especially eager to see what happened to the spankees in his various prison pics....
So, after a few false starts, I have decided to try and create sequels to some of his greatest prison porn, so we can see these prison teases finally get fucked!
I decided to start with 'Fresh Meat', which should surprise nobody considering I have already talked about how it helped turn me bi-curious...
If you're like me, and you wanked to Jonathan's work while you were growing up, then this boy has been teasing us for years with his well-spanked booted bottom just begging for a big criminal cock!
So, what happens after the young inmate is kicked into his cell and the smirking guards have locked the door firmly behind him...?
I'm sure he won't put up much resistance to his four burly cellmates, but a 'freshening up' of his already well-spanked buttocks will really help ensure he doesn't give them any trouble!
In the original image, the only cock visible is that of the middle cellmate, poking out from his underwear, hinting deliciously at what awaits the new arrival. So I thought it very important that this was the first convict cock our unfortunate inmate comes into contact with. I imagine his new cellmate waves it under his nose like a fine cigar. No need to rush at first – they've got YEARS together!
As the foreskin is pulled back and the sweaty stench wafts across his nostrils, a strong hand on the back of his head pushes his soft lips against the thick veiny flesh. He feels disgust yes, but also a deep, unbearable tingle of arousal deep within his soft white balls, a submissive sensation only exacerbated by the powerful, manly hand smacking against his firm pink buttocks again and again...
I guess this is why bi-curious boys like me love the idea of being thrown in prison with a bunch of rough, tough men who will explore our darkest fantasies – whether we like it or not! If only he could bring himself to give in to the deep gay cravings that all us middle-class whiteboys have, he would be be like a kid in a (cock-flavoured) candy store!
You'll notice I haven't included text in the manips. Jonathan’s originals rarely included captions (with the unfortunate result that most of the stories that accompanied his images appear to have been lost to the annals of time) so I thought I’d try a few manips in the same style where the reader can create their own interpretation, while I write my idea of the story in the accompanying blog post...
The new inmate's bottom must really be sizzling by now, and, as Mitchell said in his excellent analysis of 'Fresh Meat' on his Mitchmen blog:
'there's nothing more enticing to a cell-full of bored men than a pair of tenderised buttocks...'
The experienced cons know that the best way for a whiteboy to lose his anal virginity is in the ultra-humiliating diaper-changing position... especially when the only lube available is the spit of your fellow cellmates, vigorously applied with their thick man fingers!
You'll notice that the lead cellmate has let his hand wander down between the boy's legs, unable to resist giving a little encouragement to his rapidly stiffening member. No doubt the hardened convicts will tease their new cellmate mercilessly about how hard he gets when he is violated!
And he will get violated plenty of times on this first night! Just look at the contrast between his smooth, unblemished flesh and the hulking, hairy, tattooed physiques of his cellmates...
Think how long it has been since any of them has had a woman, or even a previous, weaker cellmate (unless of course the youngest one has being getting held down by the other three... in which case he will be even happier about the new arrival!)
Criminals aren't known for their patience, and both of those fresh hot holes must look very tempting, so our tight young inmate is going to need to learn fast how to suck a dick at the same time as getting pounded in his not-so-virgin ass!
Something about these manips make me think it's like the convicts are posing for pictures. Has one of them smuggled a phone into the prison, and they are now using it to record their depraved sex acts? With the state of social media in this day and age, this is a deliciously horrifying prospect... soon all this young man's friends and family will know exactly what is happening to him in jail!
At this point the unfortunate new inmate has sampled every one of his cellmates' cocks in his mouth or asshole (or both!) So will he be getting some respite...?
No such luck! I suppose this last pic could also have come straight after the original image, with the ravenous inmates getting 'straight down to it', finding those tenderised buttocks to be truly irresistible, as Mitchell says.
There's something I love about the way Jonathan drew the victim's face in the original pic. It so conveys the emotions of what it would be like to be in this situation: the outrage, the fear, the disbelief that something like this could be happening to him, and yet the resignation (especially as his slender white cock is clearly erect in the final manip) – this is just what happens to young middle-class whiteboys in prison!
Speaking of middle-class whiteboys, is this how you interpret the origins of the young prisoner? He clearly isn't as big, strong and criminal as his new cellmates!
Perhaps he is a white-collar criminal? Even hotter for me is the idea that he could be utterly blameless and in prison for a crime he didn't commit. Perhaps he has been used as a patsy for the executives he works for, taking the fall for one of their many embezzlement schemes.
The final manip is intended to bring the series 'full circle', set in the morning after the new inmate has spent the night being well and truly used... and now his cellmates are hard and ready for more! The guards aren't shown, but they are intended to be 'offscreen' in their original positions, seeing firsthand what they have the let the young man in for...
Speaking of which, those guards certainly look young – almost the same age as the new inmate. Do they take a sadistic delight in sending one of their peers to his doom? When they finish their shifts and go home to jack off (or hump their girlfriends) will they be thinking about the poor guy?
Another idea springs to mind... While it's hot to think of this innocent boy being banged up like this for many years, the idea that this is just an overnight stay in a holding cell could be just as arousing. I'm not that au fait with American uniforms, but are the guards' blue outfits more suggestive of police officers?
He could be completely innocent, the victim of a misunderstanding or a case of mistaken identity. The officers could probably clear it all up in a few minutes, but for some reason it takes them all night... and as they are doing things 'by the book', the innocent suspect is stripped naked and thrown in the holding cells while he waits!
Or maybe he was a little impatient at a traffic stop, or is the victim of an entirely meritless accusation from a girlfriend (boy will she enjoy seeing the photos on social media!)
And if he HAS been kept in overnight, is the final manip the sight that greets his parents/girlfriend/wife/lawyer/buddies when they come to bail him out? (Maybe it's all of them, with kids in tow as they couldn't get a babysitter...)
Then of course there is the question of how he came to be spanked BEFORE he was 'thrown to the wolves'. Was it part of his sentence? Are introductory paddlings/strappings/birchings de rigeur for new inmates, as in the titilating tale that I have previously based a manip on? Or do the guards just take advantage of their position to act out their spanking fantasies on the younger inmates?
It's worth saying that, online, 'Fresh Meat' is often presented with a black and white comic that you can find here, suggesting it was originally a colour accompaniment to the comic in some magazine or other...
For some reason I never really liked the idea that Fresh Meat is just a more realistic version of the comic's final panel (probably because there the inmate is a habitual criminal who deserves what's coming to him, rather that the innocent victim of a miscarriage of justice I prefer in my fantasies!)
I originally discovered Fresh Meat along with Jonathan's classic 'Birching Prisoner' artworks, so I always assumed they were part of the same series, in which case Fresh Meat would follow these two images...
You have to admit there is a certain resemblance between the guards, particularly in the second pic. I even tried to combine all these into one series, in a manip series that I have never been particularly happy with.
I also considered doing a prequel to Fresh Meat, showing the unfortunate young inmate getting spanked (and maybe fucked?) by the guards, just like in Birching Prisoner. But I felt it would upset the 'purity' of the scene, and I couldn't decide if the guards would have fucked him as well, or if it was more fitting that his cellmates pop his cherry...
What do you think? Do you have your own ideas about the scene? Or do you know more about the provenance of Jonathan's work? Let us know in the comments...
