The great thing about film photography is the anticipation of the medium giving you something beyond your expectations, and that the expectations mount as you wait for your ideas to process in the film itself. These 35mm photos, shot by Michael Burke, of our MASSIVE x WISEMEN party for The Passion Bag designed by The Henry and inspired by Gengoroh Tagame, perfectly encapsulate the sordid humor of playing at night. We think the imperfections of film–a quality no Snapchat or IG filter can capture–are a perfect twist to our bondage thematic, like the grooves fixed into your skin after being tied up for exactly the right length of time. 

Thanks to Michael for these photos, to Tyler J Ashley’s Baby Tea (and his Rigger, Vincent!) for hosting with the absolute moistest, to DJ Adi A DJ for sending us into an Italo-disco wonderland, Carolelyn at Wisemen and the teams at Geeks Out and Material Vodka for making this party, well…MASSIVE. To Davis and Jin for dancing their butts off, and of course for The Henry and Tagame-sensei for staging the passions of cruelty with us.

The Contracts of the Fall, 2015
Manga by Gengoroh Tagame

Genryu was a champion wrestler whose reputation as an undefeated brute preceded him. Upon retirement he started up a small yakiniku joint, serving up grilled meats and his house specialty: hormone (grilled organ meats full of nutrient rich biochemicals). Running a restaurant proves harder than Genryu thought, and he soon finds himself taking out usurious loans from a sadistic loan shark by the name of Momota. The contract they forge to keep his business afloat, soon proves to be the beginning of his downfall.

In the words of Rihanna, “Bitch Better Have My Money.”

The Contracts of the Fall includes short stories “Pochi,” “Lover Boy,” and “Die Fliegende Hollander (The Flying Dutchman),” alongside the title story.

Publication Date: December 2015
Publisher: Bruno Gmünder

Introducing MASSIVE F/W 2015!

We’re thrilled to announce a new fall/winter collection dedicated to our two original artists, JIRAIYA and GENGOROH TAGAME. Featuring collaborations with MISSION CHINESE FOOD and new media artist TERRELL DAVIS. In stores and online November 15th!

Two years ago, MASSIVE GOODS debuted Jiraiya’s BEST COUPLE. The photo-real (hand-drawn, digitally enhanced) image of two men staring adoringly at each other made waves online and has been adored and adorned by queer and heterosexual fans around the world. According to Jiraiya, the soul mates are named Asakichi and Seiji. They live together in a house that would literally fall apart if they were ever to get in a real fight; that is just how strong they are. According to Jiraiya, Seiji would almost pass for straight but Asakichi is “so enormous he’d gross out most women, and attract only the most adventurous men.” They love to take long aimless drives in their beat up Volvo, and have compatible body mass indexes.

The long-awaited return of Jiraiya’s iconic couple comes in two BOLD, enticing colorways—the classic cloudy blue sky and a psychedelic new magic hour sunset hue! We’ve completely reconstructed the garment body and developed the perfect husky fit with upgraded 60/40 poly-blend fabric, luxury trims, and fits up to 3XL.

MISSION CHINESE FOOD teams up with MASSIVE for a second shirt in tandem with the release of their gorgeous cookbook. Jiraiya’s classic Mission Chinese hunk features front and center, visibly reaching his bliss point with a bowl of the restaurant’s legendary mapo tofu. The new shirt features a background that quite literally *reflects* the sensational decor of the New York restaurant.

Gengoroh Tagame fans rejoice! The master is back with a gorgeous contribution to the collection from his new book, THE CONTRACTS OF THE FALL. Tagame’s latest BDSM-themed manga tells the tale of Genryu, a retired pro wrestler blackmailed into sexual submission. The illustration of a collared, restrained Genryu comes with extra detail (read: denser body hair) especially for MASSIVE, in two colorways: pink and light gray. The Contracts of the Fall debuts in November from Bruno Gmunder Verlag.

MASSIVE is proud to launch their first collaboration with TERRELL DAVIS, an innovative new media artist who has made a name for himself designing 3D-modeled album covers, digital collages, and VR worlds like his virtual art exhibition space, Tensquared Gallery. Davis’s T-shirt features a Jiraiya illustration of a beefy priest (originally commissioned by Japanese male escort service G.G. Group) alongside a bevy of 3D objects paying homage to the Hokkaido-based artist. The resulting T-shirt has the atmosphere of a MASSIVE dreamscape.

Our newly redesigned website debuts November 15th, the same day the F/W collection debuts online and at boutiques like Opening Ceremony and the BASE Superstore in Miami!
