A Week of Gardening, Gays, & Guys

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:

It begins, fitting with a few gardening posts, both practical and philosophical, (and just plain pretty) inspired by a great book on gardening and life, ‘The Backyard Parables’ by Margaret Roach.

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.)

The Lenten Rose wept as honey poured forth from Madonna’s gash… oh wait, I’m mixing up gardening and the ‘Sex’ book again…

As you may have guessed, I saw no reason to include any corresponding shots other than Trevor Donovan naked and in his underwear. Sue me.

Hunk of the Day: Marques Houston – Naked

marques houston 1

‘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.

Shirtless Saturday – Post #3


For your Saturday Night Delight, a little gratuitous male nudity, because when you start the day with shirtlessness, it’s got to build up to something.

Shirtless Saturday – Post #2


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.

Hunk of the Day: Colby Keller, Porn Star (And Then Some)

colby keller 101

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.

Instagram My Ass


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…

Hunk of the Day: Male Model Tyler Lough (With Nudity)


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.

My Full-Frontal Shot, At Long Fully-Naked Last


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.

The Great Gratuitous Shirtless and Naked Male Celebrity Post


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 ever-Speedo-clad Tom Daley

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.

Black & White Booty Shots


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.

A curtain.

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.

A watcher.

Observed observer.

Peering from a kitchen window.

Before going back to the morning, back to the start of the day, back to where it all began.

Hunk of the Day: Jesus Chri…err, Luz


This is Jesus Luz, the Hunk of the Day. In honor of Good Friday, I thought it wise to do something Jesus-themed. I mean, in a sense, the big JC was the first shirtless Hunk of the Day – what with the swaddling clothes and then that half-naked crucifixion bit. Bondage, flogging, torture – how far is Good Friday from a hardcore BDSM scene? And how far is this blog from being excommunicated? Pope Francis, bring it on.

This Jesus is far from a martyr. He was, after all, one of Madonna’s boyfriends. And I’m not talking the Holy Mother either. He was shagging her from around 2009-2010, and got some modeling mileage out of it. He’s definitely one of her hotter choices, more-so in photographs than in action it would appear from videos. At any rate, here he is, representing the name ‘Jesus’ in all its blasphemous glory.

Naked Male Celebrities: The Erection Collection


In my absence, a gratuitous collection of past ‘Hunk of the Day’ posts – actually just a long, long list that you can click or dismiss as you deem fit. These guys have inspired, stimulated, and erected a fuss whenever they’ve doffed their clothing, so here’s to them (and the crass title of this post). Just to raise it slightly out of the sleaze, however, a few choice quotes from some favorite books. There’s no reason we shouldn’t educate through erotica.

We’ll begin with a few instant classics:

Casper Van Dien

Chris Evans

Harry Judd

Shemar Moore

Matthew McConaughey

David Beckham

Channing Tatum

A few gay super heroes:

Mike Ruiz

Eliad Cohen

Matt Bomer

Brad Goreski

Matthew Mitcham

Ronnie Kroell

Cheyenne Jackson


And a few belovedly off-beat favorites:

James Franco

David Duchovny

Will Wikle

Kevin Jonas

Ashton Kutcher

And last, but certainly not least, the male models (including porn):

Quinn Jaxon

Benjamin Godfre

Tyson Beckford

Josh Wald

David Gandy

Hunk of the Day: Jake Shears


It shook my musical world when the Scissor Sisters recently announced that they were going on a hiatus. That rarely bodes well for a band, at least not unless you can fast forward to the reunion tour, and even then it’s never quite as good as you remember it. (“You can never do the same thing twice, no matter how fierce.”) But until then there is the music they’ve already created, and their front man Jake Shears is still doing his thing, appearing the other night and performing at the GLAAD Awards. It was a reminder that he had (egregiously) never been an official Hunk of the Day. That all changes now, as we bestow this ultimate honor on Mr. Shears in the name of man-skin and former go-go dancers everywhere. Now if he would only consider a solo record…

The Birthday Suit Post


This Happy Birthday post is for you. Yes, you – you who have taken the time to click away from wherever you were to come here, wherever here is, and see me don my birthday suit in honor of your special day. This is the Birthday Suit Post for all birthdays. Now assume the position for your lucky birthday spanking…

When you think about it, I’ve been honoring you in my birthday suit for years, through dozens of posts, countless gratuitously-shameless promo shots designed to titillate and disturb, like here, and here, and here, and here, and here, and here, and here, and here, and here… But this is about you, and your birthday. So have a happy one.

A Hunk and a Photographer: Eddy Barrena & Hans Fahrmeyer


I’ve been soliciting requests for the Hunk of the Day feature, and every now and then someone will mention whom they want to see. This, however, is the first time a photographer has submitted one of his models, as well as photos, and it’s a rather refreshing motion. The photographer is Hans Fahrmeyer, and the model is Eddy Barrena. Mr. Barrena is a performer and model who has an album out now, “GlitterNation”. Previously he performed as back-up dancer for Cazwell. Many thanks to Hans for the recommendation and the photos. Be sure to visit his site at WWW.HANSFAHRMEYER.COM.
