Posing help!!! websites?

Ok, I've had some questions up before about this topic. I'm taking senior pictures for a couple guys this year. I've gotten some great ideas for places and props to use. But I'm having problems deciding how exactly to pose them. More standing, sitting....most guys don't look that flattering laying down on their tummy like a girl would...haha! so if you guys have any good websites with examples or any other help that would be greatly greatly appreciated! THANK YOU!!!

One thing you can try is an image search on Google for "senior portraits."
That will return several pages of photos and give you some ideas.

  My son looked great sitting on a fence and I shot up. Really nice background scene helped the pose. Another good one for guys is next to their truck, or motorbike kind of leaning on it. A good manly pose is to find something they can put one leg up on and then put one forearm down on that. If you ask me, guys look great peeking out from behind a tree (just kidding).
