Happy Birthday to TOM’s Foundation!

MAY WE SUGGEST A GIFT?

GIVE SOMETHING THAT ENRICHES
EVERYONE’S LIVES

DONATIONS —|— MEMBERSHIP —|— BEQUESTS

In 1984, ToFF, the nonprofit, 501(c)(3) Educational Archive was established.
As Tom (born Touko Laaksonen) had achieved worldwide recognition
as the master of homo-erotic art, the Foundation’s original purpose
was to preserve his vast catalog of work.
Several years later the scope was widened to offer a safe haven for all erotic art
in response to rampant discrimination against art that portrayed sexual behavior or
generated a sexual response.
Today the Foundation continues in its efforts of educating the public
as to the cultural merits of erotic art and in promoting
healthier, more tolerant attitudes about sexuality.

Donations are deductible to the extent allowed by law.

Guy 1: “Damn, boss. Can I try it?”

Guy 3: “Fabulous tail!”

Guy 2: “Awesome thing!

 

 

 

Boss: “If you don’t learn the rules,
I’ll whip your pretty ass to blood”

Guy 1: “I brought the boss a boy”
