Since 2007

Hello and welcome from Madeira Desouza of Las Vegas! I am not just starting out with this provocative adults-only material. I’ve been creating wild images and stories since 2007. See my extensive collection of explicit illustrated stories, box sets of images and for-men-only-collectibles downloadable for free to get what you came for.

As an artist and storyteller, I know that my stories and images of highly masculine men who are muscular are not appealing to gay men who prefer stories and images of men who choose to appear or behave or speak like females. In my creative works I deliberately use the bara underground art genre which is well-known to be provocative and also unlikely to appeal to gay men who prefer men who appear or behave or speak like females.

If you are a blogger or other social media writer, this one website MenHurtingMen.com has a high degree of background information about Madeira Desouza that can help you write an article or commentary about him or his masculine male art.

Pen Name

I’m a citizen of the United States, born in California. My heritage is Portuguese from both my parents. I have been known since high school as Woody. The word madeira is Portuguese for wood. The surname Desouza is a variation of the surname Souza from my old country grandfather on my mother’s side.

Before I had reached the age of 30, I had earned both a master’s degree and doctoral degree in communications. I started out wanting to make a living as a college professor. But I discovered a stunning truth. That profession is not the best for job security due to toxic office politics in the academic field. Plus, a person is not paid very well when just starting out in this profession.

In 1997 I started publishing online under the pen name of Madeira Desouza. Then in 2007 I branched out into creating original 3D digital images for online publication also using that same pen name. But most people know me and keep referring to me as Woody.

When I was a boy, I had an irrational fear that I would turn out to be merely an ordinary man.

During journalism school, I grew to admire writers who distinguished themselves through their professional works. But, I also must confess that I developed a very strong attraction to the well-known practice of writers who use a pseudonym. I discovered in those days that Mark Twain was the pen name of Samuel Langhorne Clemens. Filtered through the perceptions of a teenage boy, that was the coolest thing I had ever come to know about the writing profession.

No surprise that Mark Twain has remained my favorite American writer of all time. Not that I think I am as good as he was or ever will be. But, I seek to be humorous like him, to tell vivid and imaginative stories like he told, and, yes, to have a memorable nom de plume like his. I created a pseudonym for myself that would sound considerably more Old World ethnic compared to my own birth name while being a name that everyone should recognize no ordinary person would ever have.

It does not really matter whether someone with a pseudonym is prominent and globally identifiable like Mark Twain or Stephen King or J.K. Rowling or Jay Z. The simple reality is that having a pseudonym is a timeworn way of differentiating yourself from everyone else.
