Because some Mondays are so tough you need a little man candy.
There is none sweeter than Ben Cohen.
Especially without a shirt.
And in his wet underwear.
It’s a new year, and the perfect day for checking in with Ben Cohen, especially in the form of the video below, which finds him acting all sexy and shirtless at his ‘Attitude’ cover shoot. They should have panned down to his underwear, but instead you’ll have to be content with the following photo of Mr. Cohen and his big balls.
Leave it to Attitude magazine to get Ben Cohen into his briefs again, but if he wants to continue enticing his fans, he’s going to have to go a little further next time. It’s a race between Mr. Cohen and David Beckham to who will show their bum first, I just feel it. If I had to bet, my money would be on Beckham’s behind seeing the photographer’s flashbulbs first. But Cohen’s proven pretty ballsy in the past too, so it might be closer than wildly anticipated. Before that kind of glory, however, let’s take a brief look back. Scroll down and click away…
This wet underwear post was one of the first to feature Mr. Cohen. You never forget your first time.
Then there was this trio of boxer-brief shots.
He looks good in an underwear-clad video too.
Here was his first Hunk of the Day feature.
Working out before a little dancing.
But he’s best in these tight briefs.
The 2014 Ben Cohen was just released, which is all the flimsy reason I need to post these making-of shots of a deliciously shirtless Ben Cohen. It’s doubtful that anyone will mind all that much, as Mr. Cohen is both easy on the eyes, and warming to the heart given his straight ally status. One day soon I’ll do the long-planned straight ally profile on him (get back to me with those interview questions, Ben!) Until then, this sort of shirtless fluff will have to suffice. Sometimes fluff is the stuff of brilliance.
It’s been a good week of shirtless male celebrities here, despite my lack of interest in things of late. First we had a very naked Zac Efron, legit, and here we have Ben Cohen in his tighty-whities on the cover of ‘Attitude’. Talk about a bountiful harvest. While Zac Efron has been featured a number of times, (also in his tighty-whities) he still pales in comparison to the number of Ben Cohen underwear posts – the guy even has his own Category. His cover shoot is in well-deserved honor of his work as an ally. When you’re hot, you’re hot, but when you’re good you’re hotter.
Ben Cohen is currently making news on the new series of ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ across the pond. While I have to be entranced by dancing shows (gay gasp!) I would watch Mr. Cohen. (I still miss ‘Solid Gold’ – filling up your life with music. And Dionne.) Anyway, more shirtless Ben Cohen shots elsewhere on this site.
One day soon I’ll write a Straight Ally piece on Ben Cohen for all the work he’s done for equality. Until then, you’ll just have to feast on these shots and the multitude of past posts (here, here, here, here, here, and here) where Mr. Cohen has appeared in equally glorious stages of undress (and underwear). The most appealing thing about him, as hard as it is to narrow it down, is his heart. He’s a true believer in his mission (the admirable Stand Up foundation) and he backs up his words with his actions. (He also Tweeted me a Happy Birthday, and if the guy can make that kind of effort for a nobody, he’s pretty damn amazing.)
Forget my full-frontal reveal, and check out Ben Cohen’s package below. If you want to talk about a major male nudity get, I think Mr. Cohen may come in second only to David Beckham. Second best or not, the battle of the bulge is hotter than ever. (Though I didn’t expect his balls to be so, well, dirty…)
Wait for it…
Two times in one day? I almost feel bad.
Lest anyone think we’re favoring David Beckham over Ben Cohen, let me rectify that right now with this quick post. Someway, somehow, I’m going to get Mr. Cohen to be one of our Straight Ally profiles, even if I have to write it without his input. (Which, let’s be honest, is likely to be the way it goes.) With his ‘Stand Up’ foundation, he is one of the most prominent examples in the sports world of what it means to be a straight ally, and his work to stop bullying is admirable. If you happen to know Ben, tell him to get on the telly and call me. In the meantime, enjoy these fun, furry photos.
The wild winds of January returned in full-force this past week, plunging us into the depths of sub-freezing temperatures and reminding us that winter in the Northeast is anything but a cake walk. Fortunately, there was solace to be found in the more superficial pleasures, and some of the deeper ones as well.
This may be the toughest question I’ve posed on this website. It’s one of those deeply philosophical debates, one that will likely rage for centuries to come. It has divided the world, pitting friend against friend, destroying relationships and altering the lives of innocent people everywhere. Who is the sexier footballer: Ben Cohen or David Beckham? I’ve got my own theories, and wholly unsubstantiated evidence to back up my beliefs, but in the end it’s in the eye of the beholder.
Here, I’ve given you the basic tools to which you can make your own comparisons and determinations. Personally, my money is on Mr. Cohen. There’s something kinder about him, something more vulnerable and less cocky and arrogant, something that can’t be put into words or even pictures – you just know it when you see it. What do you think?
