Ukulele Porn

DISCLAIMER: Those of you with a delicate stomach should stop reading now... you have been warned!

I realise that this post might be deemed to be a little controversial, but having thought about it for five minutes, I'm going to do it anyway...

This all started about a week ago when I got messaged by one of my colleagues on Electric Ukulele Land. I was sent a link to an item on ebay with words along the lines of BUY IT! To be honest, I wasn't that sure what I was going to do with it once I'd bought it, but I duly obliged. Yes... I am easily lead. The item in question was a postcard-sized print of this...

Is this ukulele porn?

BA-RA-KA

It arrived last week and I'm still not sure what to do with it. You may remember that I did a review of a great little uke book by the name of Ode to Uke a while back. That book was written by the author of a blog called Ukulele Porn. Aha! You know where I'm going with this don't you! The cogs started whirring... was this a new type of ukulele-love as yet unnoticed by me? But what on earth was ukulele porn? Was it what I thought it was? Or was it something entirely different? There was only one way to find out...

I hopped onto Google+ and told the gang that I was planning to do a post on Ukulele Porn. I urged them to let me know what they thought of the idea. It was a mixed bag of responses to be honest but nobody said they'd hunt me down and shoot me. What was immediately clear though was that I had stumbled onto something BIG! As the links started to flow in, I could barely contain my excitement. Much research followed and I now feel more qualified to talk on the topic. I must say, I have enjoyed researching this post :-)

First things first... let's return to that question of what constitutes Ukulele Porn. I have it on rather good authority that it is as follows:
"ukulele porn" has long been used to describe pics of ukuleles that a uke phreak would lust after. not a ukulele in a nudie pic. ~ Howlin' Hobbit
Hmmm... I'm not sure it can possibly be this simple. Let's see if we can further refine this definition with a pictureshow. Thanks to everyone who contributed links.

It is worth saying that very few of the photos below are my own. I have tried my hardest to give credit where credit is due, and to link back to any sites mentioned. If I have somehow misrepresented or miscredited, or more generally messed up with any of these photos then please let me know; I'm happy to right all wrongs.

Let's do this!
