It’s been a while since I’ve dropped trou here (I challenge you to scroll back to find it – it will take a while), so here’s something to appease the two people who have been asking. Say what you will, gratuitous male nudity makes this site go around.
This feisty red-headed Broadway hoofer and singer is Ricky Schroeder, our Hunk of the Day, currently raising funds in his Strip-A-Thon for Broadway Bares. His day job (well, night job) is being part of the ‘Naked Boys Singing!‘ company. He also appears on the recent cover of Next, as shot by photographer Kevin Thomas Garcia. It’s always nice when someone cute fronts a good cause, and on this site everybody loves a ginger!
Forget the shirtless – let’s just take off all their clothes. Here is a brief (or brief-less) collection of some of the guys who have deigned to remove their sartorial armor and get all buck naked (and in most of these cases buff naked). There’s no ailment a little gratuitous male nudity can’t instantly fix, or at least soothe. So without further ado or pesky clothes, here are some of those naked men.
It begins, fittingly, with the royal tush of Prince Harry, baring his bottom whilst gaming it up in Las Vegas.
Though he is technically naked here, you may not be happy with the hands of Adam Levine’s girlfriend, covering up his junk in annoying jungle red.
Feel free to play ball with Patriot Rob Gronkowski and don’t bother wearing a cup because he didn’t.
Though he was already featured earlier today, he wasn’t naked. But Nick Youngquest is naked now.
Ladies and gentlemen, this is your next Superman – Hunk of the Day Henry Cavill. He’ll be slipping into that unforgiving suit sometime this summer, but in case you can’t wait to see what that skin-tight ensemble will disguise, here he is shirtless and, finally, naked. It should go without saying at this point that I much prefer him with some fur on his chest. Like Chris Evans, he can do both, but I hope he eases up on the razor. We each have our peccadilloes.
Along with former Hunk of the Day Mr. Evans, a few other furry men have graced these pages in the past, and perhaps we should link them here for your male eye candy enjoyment: Jon Hamm, Ben Cohen, Mark Ruffalo, Dylan McDermott, Lance Parker, Andy Cohen, Shayne Ward, Josh Wald, Colby Keller, Brett Gleason, Eric Alán, Sacha Harding, David Shillington, Eliad Cohen, Jason Statham, and Scott Caan.
But before you click away on those guys, finish scrolling down. Henry Cavill and his naked ass are the kind of happy ending you don’t want to miss.
The title says almost all. This is Grant Kother, one of the zookeepers at the London Zoo. In an effort to gain attention for the diminishing population of Sumatran tigers in the world, and an upcoming naked run at the London Zoo (appropriately titled a “Streak for Tigers”), Mr. Kother has posed for these photos, showing his very naked physique going about his zoo duties. Not sure how safe this sort of thing was around the snapping turtles, but that tiger certainly looks entranced. Or hungry. Either way, this grants Mr. Kother the highest zoological award this site can muster – the Hunk of the Day. We’re all just animals here anyway.
This past week has seen a drastic transformation of the gardens, thanks as much to Mother Nature as to my mother-fucking muscle. My back is on strike, my feet simply quit, and my hands couldn’t pull the trigger on a pair of pruning shears to save my life. But the work got did, the yard got cleaned, and the beds and borders have not looked this good in a long time. After a few years of wild, over-grown and unchecked wilderness, this was the time I took it back. It was a time to be ruthless, and I was. I’m paying for it a bit now in callouses and back-aches, but it was worth it. Onto the previous week’s recap:
There was music by Muse, both mad and divine.
I don’t know what is going on with the restaurant bars in Downtown Albany, but they seem to be losing their way. Case in point, this martini at La Serre.
The Hunk of the Day returned with a shirtless vengeance, featuring the easy-on-the-eyes likenesses of Nate Berkus, Trevor Donovan, Jon Bon Jovi, Terry Miller, Alex Pettyfer, and Marques Houston. (And I threw in some Tom Daley in a Speedo for good measure.)
‘Naked’ singer Marques Houston is the Hunk of the Day, and the video below is more than enough reason why. Known mostly for his music, Mr. Houston has also acted, in such not-so-notable flicks as ‘House Party 3′ (I didn’t want to see it, having missed the first two) and ‘Battlefield America’, which was described as a “kids hop hop dance battle film” which, needless to say, I missed as well. I prefer him singing and stripping in videos.
There was something about the anonymous models of the International Male/Undergear catalogs that was always more real and relatable than the celebrity pecs so perfectly poised in magazines. (Forgive the IM/Undergear reference – it dates me more accurately than the Andrew Christian/C-IN2/2-xist reference I could have made to mask the fact that I came of age between the 80’s and the 90’s.) Anyway, here are some old and new bulges from the men’s underwear world.
Porn stars often get a bad rap. Okay, some of them are exactly what they are made out to be, but some of them are so much more. Case of the latter: Colby Keller, our Hunk of the Day. Mr. Keller has put in his sexy time in a number of porn films (Videos? Downloads? What is the proper term these days?) But far more than that, he seems to be an intelligent, witty, and thoughtful blogger, who has some amazing posts on his deliciously NSFW site Big Shoe Diaries. (Forewarned is fairwarned: he sees penis everywhere.)
I love it when people turn such pre-conceived notions as ‘porn star’ on their heads, forcing a confrontation with long-held beliefs and narrow-minded labels. It’s good for the brain to be so jolted. And Mr. Keller can most certainly deliver a jolt.
A number of people have asked me why I don’t start an Instagram account, citing all the pics I post. To be honest, that’s the entire reason in itself: I already post enough photos – why do I want another outlet and time-burner for that? Besides, Madonna was already warned about her Instagram photos – it would be just a matter of time before my account got shut down by the powers-that-be. No, for now you’ll have to come here to get a bum-rush like the one you see here today. This is basically what my Instagram shots would look like – and I think I’ve suffered enough em-bare-ass-ment for one day.
Having said all that, I’ll probably join a few years from now, when it’s starting to subside, like I did with Twitter. I’m a Virgo. It takes me a while to embrace the change. Of course, if you want to make the world a better place, take a look at your ass and make a change. (Sorry, I’m on some serious sleep-deprivation…)
ADDENDUM: I’m now on Instagram under ‘alanilagan’. I had to let it happen… I had to change…
There are only a few male models that I’ve featured on this site, mostly because I find male models too perfect (See David Gandy, Noah Mills, Tyson Beckford, etc.) Not that there’s anything wrong in perfection, it simply gets tiresome after a while. Give me a less-than-perfect edge and I’m all yours. For Tyler Lough, the Hunk of the Day, however, I’ll make an exception. Sometimes perfection is simply… perfect. So get a gander at Mr. Lough – and be grateful that most male models get naked at some point, and have it documented for posterior, err, posterity.
You’ve asked for it for years. I’ve teased and toyed, hemmed and hawed, held it and hesitated. The longest bout of edging is drawing to its inevitable close, and today is the day. We have come to the Full-frontal male nudity final frontier of this site. Are you ready to rock out with your cock out? Hang on… and scroll down. Way down… because an event of this magnitude requires a little teasing before the pleasing…
The day you knew would arrive is here – you’ll survive…
Oh come on.
As a follow-up to this mega-collection of naked male celebrity photos (The Erection Collection), and a pre-Easter treat in the limbo-like suspense before He rises (oh blasphemy), here is another group of former ‘Hunks of the Day‘, hyper-linked for easy access and studded with a few new photos for your man-candy Easter baskets. I’m not going to group them into any sort of order or label as I did last time, partly because we as humans defy such quick categorization (but mostly because I’m just too damn lazy and it will be enough searching through the archives to find a decent spattering of male celebrities getting their nudity on).
By the way, if you want to search the Archives yourself, scroll down to the bottom of the page, click the drop-down box for the ‘Archives’ section, and select the month and year you wish to peruse. If you go to the bottom of the pages and hit ‘Older posts’ you can keep going back, back, way on way back when…
The very furry Scott Caan…
The artfully inked (and aptly-last-named) Stuart Reardon…
The sporty Nick Youngquest…
The perfectly pubic Noah Mills…
The beautifully bountiful Columbus Short…
The sexy-back singer Justin Timberlake…
The arguably cutest of the three, Nick Jonas…
The gleefully shirtless Darren Criss…
The oh-so-young-but-still-hairy arm pits of Taylor Lautner…
The specimen of perfection Scott Herman…
The dashing dancer/football player Victor Cruz…
The shirtless guy from all the shows I never watched Chace Crawford…
The falsetto smoothness known as Adam Levine…
& the manliest man Sacha Harding.
A disconnected moment.
A silence in the middle of the day.
A gaze of both longing and being exactly where one wants to be.
Looking out at the world is the first step in becoming brave.
Hanging in the window.
Disguising and hiding nothing in the light.
When what you cannot see can still be seen, what you think they cannot see still can be seen.
Peering from a kitchen window.
Before going back to the morning, back to the start of the day, back to where it all began.
