Hunk of the Day: Mike Shouhed

This Hunk of the Day hails from Bravo’s ‘Shahs of Sunset’, yet another reality show that I’ve never seen, and never will. I believe the skintastic photos are  from a session for Playgirl magazine, or Playgirl online, or Playgirl-the-now-defunct. His name is Mike Shouhed. Would it be terribly naughty to make a Persian lamb joke? Okay, I won’t. Baaaaaa…

Hunk of the Day: Soren Gere

FaceBook sensation and fitness model Soren Gere is our Hunk of the Day. He reviews, and more importantly poses in, various underwear styles, offering helpful critical commentary on the fit and cut and wear and tear of a certain brand. Of course, as with most fitness models, the merchandise tends to get lost in the shuffle of everything else going on, but we wouldn’t have it any other way. In these photos (most of which were taken by the brilliant Eric Battershell) Soren shines, often with nary a piece of underwear in sight.

Hunk of the Day: Tomas Brand

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: gay porn stars get a bad rap. I guess all porn stars do. I’m not sure why – how many of you sick fucks would kill to do what they do for money? But I digress, and I’m sure more than a few are the exact embodiment of their worst image. Yet I’d like to believe that there are human beings behind the masks of perfect pumptitude. When Tomas Brand was requested for the Hunk of the Day, I sent him a Tweet and he responded, even including a few photos as seen here. If someone is good enough to engage with a stranger, and do so in a polite way, I’m willing to give them a chance. Here’s to Mr. Brand. (And thank you for the suggestion!)

The First Day of Summer

Here it is, the perennial promise I make every summer and holiday season: I’m going to take it easy, reel it back on the number of posts on this blog, slow down on the activities I do, and simply enjoy the lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer. It won’t happen, but I’m going to attempt it. And part of that means pictures are going to take the place of words – like this throwback vintage shot from a few years ago. For those of you who enjoy the pool shots, you’re about to get your wish – for those that don’t… see you in September.

Hunk of the Day: Oguchi Onyewu, The Naked Soccer Player

Meet American soccer player Oguchi Onyewu, our Hunk of the Day for all the reasons seen here. ESPN Magazine saw fit to remove his clothes for this photo shoot, and for once I can’t blame ESPN. As can be gleaned from what’s on display, soccer does a body good.

Hunk of the Day: Pavel Petel

The Hunk of the Day comes courtesy of a recommendation. He is Pavel Petel, a DJ and performance artist from Moscow. Seek out his Tumblr account for far more racier (and full-frontal) fare. He’s man enough to rock a pink wig and high heels, and one must respect that.

Bare-assed in the Bedroom

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.

Hunk of the Day: Ricky Schroeder

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!

A Shirtless, Smutty (And Naked) Saturday ~ Part 2

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.

Things get a little Biblical with a man named Jesus (Luz), who once dated the real Dude’s mother’s namesake, Madonna.

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.

Hunk of the Day: Henry Cavill, The Naked Superman

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 HammBen Cohen, Mark RuffaloDylan McDermottLance Parker, Andy Cohen, Shayne WardJosh Wald, Colby Keller, Brett GleasonEric AlánSacha Harding, David ShillingtonEliad 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.

Hunk of the Day: Grant Kother, The Naked Zookeeper

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.

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

‘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.
