Within gay culture the gym has become a sacred site.  It has become a holy ground of immense tension for men and their potential partners. The gym is the place where one goes to build themselves into a commodity to be devoured.  Men go to the gym to prepare for courtship; however, more importantly, it is also the site of many courtship rituals.  Within the intoxicating air filled with testosterone, sweat, and body odor, glances are exchanged, compliments are given, and flirtation is provoked.  It is the place of vulnerability, empowerment, potential, and release for those whom for most of their lives have been unable to explore their sexuality.  To see and to bee seen: the atmosphere of the gym is not unlike the atmosphere of a bar or club.
A dumbbell atop of a fur pedestal.  The dumbbell itself, slowly inching along the pedestal surface moving from one end to the other to complete its necessary set of reps.   It grunts and releases its moans of exhaustion with every effort.  What is the dumbbell alone?  What is the dumbbell now as it is prostrated across fur?  What type of conversation is created between these two subjects?  The dumbbell has now become a sexual object and we are the voyeur participating in its seduction.
