Hunk of the Day: Timor Steffens

Timor Steffens 101

For some reason, it’s always a dicey affair when Madonna begins dating a guy. For every Jesus Luz, there is a Warren Beatty. This time around, she’s rumored to be seeing Hunk of the Day Timor Steffens. My jury’s still out on how hot this guy is – I’m honestly undecided. It’s the same thing that happened with her last boy-toy, Brahmin Zaibat. In some photos he was stirringly sexy, in others I wondered what she was thinking. For now, she gets the benefit of the doubt because, after all, she’s Madonna.

Hunk of the Day: Jack Laugher

jack laugher 01

While the world may swoon over Tom Daley (of which this site is largely guilty) there are other British divers that fill out their Speedos just as well, such as Jack Laugher, the Hunk of the Day. In addition to his fun name, there are his perky assets – just keep scrolling down to see them. Forget the Olympics, the real contest is between Laugher and Daley in the Speedo department. Who do you think wins that battle?

Hunk of the Day: André Hamann

André Hamann101

Forget the World Cup, one of the best things Germany has done is give birth to the Hunk of the Day, André Hamann. Rather than espousing upon his obvious attributes in my silly words, let’s have a few quotes from a much more masterful word-worker, Nathaniel Hawthorne in ‘The Marble Faun.’ They pertain to Mr. Hamann, and any beautiful man or woman for that matter. They also tell us a bit about art, and beauty, and humanity. The conundrum is that Mr. Hawthorne seems decidedly undecided as to which is more powerful. See for yourself…

Nature needed, and still needs, this beautiful creature, standing betwixt man and animal, sympathizing with each, comprehending the speech of either race, and interpreting the whole existence of one to the other. ~ Nathaniel Hawthorne

It was difficult to make out the character of this young man. So full of animal life as he was, so joyous in his deportment, so handsome, so physically well-developed, he made no impression of incompleteness, of maimed or stinted nature. ~ Nathaniel Hawthorne

And, in truth, while our friend smiled at these wild fables, he sighed, in the same breath, to think how the once genial earth produces, in every successive generation, fewer flowers than used to gladden the preceding ones. Not that the modes and seeming possibilities of human enjoyment are rarer, in our refined and softened era, (on the contrary, they never before were nearly so abundant,) but that mankind are getting so far beyond the childhood of their race, that they scorn to be happy any longer. A simple and joyous character can find no place for itself among the sage and sombre figures that would put his unsophisticated cheerfulness to shame. The entire system of Man’s affairs, as at present established, is built up purposely to exclude the careless and happy soul. ~ Nathaniel Hawthorne

Thus coarsely does the world translate all finer griefs that meet its eye! It is more a coarse world than an unkind one. ~ Nathaniel Hawthorne

This hallowed work of genius shows what pictorial art, devoutly exercised, might effect in behalf of religious truth; involving, as it does, deeper mysteries of Revelation, and bringing them closer to man’s heart, and making him tenderer to be impressed by them, than the most eloquent words of preacher or prophet. ~ Nathaniel Hawthorne

Hunk of the Day: Bryan Thomas

Bryan Thomas 101

Some men are so physically perfect you simply have to sigh. Case in beautiful point is Pennsylvania-born male model Bryan Thomas, the Hunk of the Day, who seems born to be on the cover of a magazine. Beauty has its own spirituality, even in the slight way it elicits a sigh, a whisper of desire, the hint of want. There is a long tunnel of longing in each of our lives. Such prettiness is a reminder of this. It’s the same prettiness that unfurls from the frond of a fern, or drips from the dew-stained bloom of the rose. It is visceral and ephemeral, fixed and fleeting, and it tugs as much at the mind as it does on the heart.

Hunk of the Day: Sung Jin Park

Sung Jin Park0

Represented by Wilhemina Models in New York, this is Sung Jin Park, the Hunk of the Day. A native of Korea, Mr. Park is a bit on the thin side, recalling the waif-like hey-day of early 90′s heroin-chic. (How did Marky Mark ever get into the underwear scene at such a thin time?) Mr. Park is further representation of the Asian male model explosion currently taking over the pretty scene.

Hunk of the Day: J.W. Harvey

JW Harvey 1001

There aren’t many writers who have made it into the realm of Hunk of the Day. Wait, are there any? (Peruse the Archives if you want – I’m too lazy to do so.) I don’t think there are, so this may be the christening of our first, and it goes fittingly to J.W. Harvey, a FaceBook friend who writes for The Huffington Post. And, since he is the writer, here is his bio on that venerable site:

J.W. Harvey is a shapeshifting creative in New York. A writer by nature, he uses the arts of acting and modeling to explore new characters and emotional depths–as well as gaining influence from other artists as a freelance event and social media manager–repackaging his experiences in words for the reader to unwrap. He candy-coats deep intellectuality with shiny commercial ribbon, creating artistic layers that all audiences can consume.

If there’s one thing that’s sexier than such an exquisite body and face, it’s intelligence. Talent and thoughtfulness add further layers of interest, but when someone can articulate complex themes and probing analysis and turn them into words seemingly spun of gold, that’s always impressive to me. The art of writing is a vanishing one, thanks to character limits and the attention-deficit epidemic of the internet (to which blogs like this are admittedly to blame.) Thankfully, Mr. Harvey is doing what he can to stop the inevitable erosion, and when you’re done drooling over his chiseled chest and dreamy eyes, take a few moments to read some of his work.

These are connections that you know are there even when you’re not. These are the connections that you can measure all of your relationships against.

You don’t pick and choose who these people are in your life, but when you find them, keep them. Cherish them. With them, you can forgive any guilt or worry without a single expression. With them, you can find peace in their eyes, whether you can see them or not. ~ J.W. Harvey

Hunk of the Day: Cooper Grodin

cooper grodin 101

Phantoms can be fierce, as evidenced by current masked man Cooper Grodin, who stars in the touring production of ‘The Phantom of the Opera’ playing in Boston right now. While Grodin spends all of his stage time covered in masks and prosthetics, in real life he cuts a much more dashing figure, hence this Hunk of the Day designation.

Hunk of the Day: Todd Finlay

todd finlay 099

The Hunk of the Day hails from Down Under. This is Todd Finlay, an Australian-born model who has spent a chunk of time in Miami. If you’re going to model, I suppose Miami is as good a place as any in which to work. And if you happen to look like Mr. Finlay, finding work shouldn’t be much of a problem.

Hunk of the Day: Ian Thorpe

Ian Thorpe

Apparently Ian Thorpe is due to publicly come out as gay, after denying it for years. Mr. Thorpe is an Australian swimmer, whose swiftness earned him the nickname ‘Thorpedo.’ His journey in coming out after years of denials was reportedly a tortured and tumultuous one, but he’s finally done it, and I hope he finds a little bit of the peace that has eluded him all this time. A little Hunk of the Day shout-out is along overdue. He has also done a line of underwear – fitting for an Olympian whose wardrobe has mostly favored Speedos.

Hunk of the Day: Diego Sans

Diego Sans 101

Andrew Christian has contributed quite a few of the Hunks of the Day, notably Pablo HernandezQuinn Jaxon, Colby Melvin, Jon Varak, Noah Wright, and, well, Andrew Christian himself. Now we’re adding one of his recent models (and former gay porn star) Diego Sans to the sexy mix. Sans sans clothing indeed. Hardy har hard. Too much? Never. No such thing. Happy Sunday Funday.

Hunk of the Day: Rodrigo Guilherme

Rodrigo Guilherme 01

All hail the new Hunk of the Day. This is Rodrigo Guilherme and he has the puckered pouty lips that Glee’s own trouty mouth Chord Overstreet can only dream about. He looks arguably better than Mr. Overstreet too, but let’s not pit hot-guy against hot-guy unless they’re both shirtless. Then again, have at it. Some battles are best fought without clothing.

Hunk of the Day: Philip Huang

Philip Huang1

Born in California and now residing in New York, Hunk of the Day Philip Huang tellingly straddles the country, the embodiment of a unification of East and West. Having walked the runway for the likes of Jean Paul Gaultier, Versace, Louis Vuitton, Emporio Armani, Gucci, and Dolce & Gabbana, he’s already created an impressive portfolio. Walk walk, fashion baby.

Hunk of the Day: Hector Peña

Hector Peña100

Introducing Hector Peña, the Hunk of the Day. I love him because in some of these shots he’s got a tummy like mine, and it gives me hope. Not that there’s anything wrong with Mr. Peña’s belly (or mine, thank you very much) but in the relentlessly-perfect standards of the gay community, we are pretty much all considered fat. It would matter more to me if it, well, mattered more.

Hunk of the Day: Ronnie Kroell, Times Two

ronnie kroell 000

Only very special guys get to be named Hunk of the Day twice on this site, and Ronnie Kroell is definitely worthy of that rarefied air. Thanks to a dedication to a new fitness regime, he’s managed the miraculous feat of bulking up while slimming down, improving an already-practically-perfect body, and infuriating those of us who can manage neither successfully. Yet it’s impossible to begrudge Mr. Kroell for looking so good (even in nothing but a sock for his cock), as he works so hard for it. In addition, his anti-bullying efforts for the Friend Movement continue in full-force, further proof that this good-looker is also a do-gooder.

Mr. Kroell rightfully came to fame from his modeling work, which now includes some upcoming shots taken by the magnificent Devin Mitchell, such as the one seen below.

Images like this are compelling evidence that the muse is just as important as the master, and that Mr. Kroell is a Renaissance man for the ages. He evokes, he enchants, he entrances, he enthralls. In the embrace between beauty and art, he forges an emotional charge, bringing depth to a world too-often overtaken by the shallow and the superficial.

Hunk of the Day: Daisuke Ueda

Daisuke Ueda

Japanese male model Daisuke Ueda is the Hunk of the Day. Male Asian models have long been a rarity, but that’s changing in  as more and more have been strutting the global runway. Diversity is a good thing, and that’s one goal that this blog has always tried to achieve. Mr. Ueda manages to be look both innocent and wise beyond his years, pure and devilish all at once. That kind of chameleonic magic bodes well for a model.
