Hunk of the Day: José Anmer Paredes

José Anmer Paredes 100

Though his reign as Mister International was for 2013, José Anmer Paredes is still worthy of the Hunk of the Day honor bestowed upon him today. Mr. Paredes hails from Venezuela, further proof that much of the world’s hotness is being born and bred in South America. That’s the sort of heat we need for the month of December, and the shortest days of the year.

Hunk of the Day: Nick Capra

nick capra 01

Some of us tend to forget that porn stars are people too. Hunk of the Day Nick Capra reminded me of that as I perused his blog and read about the tumultuous year he’s had. People are so much more than the image we have of them. When you think ‘Gay Porn Star‘ you don’t usually think of tenderness or depth, but sometimes it’s there. We just need to take notice.

Hunk of the Day: John Fugelsang

john fugelsang 101

He makes an unorthodox Hunk of the Day for a couple of reasons: the first being that John Fugelsang is not traditionally one of the names that comes to mind when you say ‘hunky’ – no offense to the man, but it’s true. Second, there are no shirtless photos of Mr. Fugelsang for your viewing pleasure. Instead we get the merest glimpse of chest hair. Yet somehow he merits the honor more than most men, thanks in no small part to his humor and wit. Funny is sexy, and witty is hot. Coupled with a straight-ally agenda and a razor-sharp mind, they are the very building components of what makes a man attractive. It’s not all pecs and abs, peeps.

Hunk of the Day: Finn Wittrock

finn wittrock 100

Dandy. Just Dandy. Such is the character that Finn Wittrock portrays so wickedly on this season of ‘American Horror Story.’ I actually left off watching a few episodes ago, which is precisely when Mr. Wittrock decided to drop his pants and display his butt, but thanks to the wonders of the internet, it’s available for our viewing pleasure minus the fatigue that plagues Ryan Murphy’s shows in their fourth or fifth season. As for our Hunk of the Day, anyone with a name as perfect as Finn Wittrock (no word on whether it was parent-given or what) is cool by default. Hot too.

Hunk of the Day: Ben Patrick Johnson

Ben Patrick Johnson 0001

Multiple-hyphenate Ben Patrick Johnson claims the current Hunk of the Day honor. Mr. Johnson is an actor, author, blogger, human rights activist and the Director of the Ben Patrick Johnson Foundation. You may recognize his voice before his stunning visage, as he’s done a long list of voice-over work, but once you look into those eyes they may be all you can remember. (Of course, if you’ve ever seen a movie-trailer, you know those dramatic pipes better than anything.)

Hunk of the Day: Joe Zaso

joe zaso 100

The Hunk of the Day is one of those people whom you’ve seen somewhere before, but just can’t place. Joe Zaso has been in countless films, and though his looks are striking, he hasn’t yet made a splash big enough to put him on the map for all to notice. Some of us, however, noticed him long ago, and this is an honor that’s been in the works for years. Be sure to check out his website for more of Mr. Zaso.

Hunk of the Day: Seth Fornea

Ginger fans rejoice: the Hunk of the Day is Seth Fornea, and it doesn’t get much red-hotter than this. Mr. Fornea was featured here before in a Gratuitous Ginger post, egregiously unbilled, so this is his proper Hunk crowning and a long-deserved feature. He’s coming back to local club Rocks and is sure to spruce up the season with his ginger-hotness.

Hunk of the Day: Bryce Thompson

bryce thompson 1000

A native of Cape Town, South Africa and now living in New York, Hunk of the Day Bryce Thompson is a very worldly young man – a model and a photographer. Some may scoff that models are unintelligent and vapid, and some undoubtedly are, but some are making the most of their positions, soaking up every new landscape, seeing things around the world that most of us never get to see. I’d love to travel to such extremes, and part of that is why I’m so fascinated by such beauty. Part of it. The rest is because of photos like these.

Hunk of the Day: Patrick Mitchell

patrick mitchell 1001

While part of it may be that I’m just getting older, I do think some of the models are getting younger. Case in point is today’s Hunk of the Day, whose youth almost negates his Hunkdom, but whose beauty cannot be denied. This is Patrick Mitchell, and though my mother’s maiden name is Mitchell, something tells me we’re not related to him. (I was nowhere near as blessed in the genes.) Anyway, to the youth goes the world. Enjoy it while you may – it lasts such a short time.

Hunk of the Day: Oraine Barrett

oraine barrett 01

Jamaican male model Oraine Barrett makes his Hunk of the Day debut on the recommendation of a friend. (As always, requests are welcomed when it comes to new Hunks – or old ones for that matter.) Mr. Barrett has modeled extensively, turning his striking looks into a rare-for-a-model career of longevity. Even in these few photos, he manages to be many things with just a slight modification of expression, a twist of the head, a turn of the eye. That’s the hat-trick of any model who’s going to last.

Hunk of the Day: Michael Breyette

michael breyette 101

It almost seems unfair, that someone so talented and gifted should also be so good-looking, but Michael Breyette carries his fortune with humility and grace, and an ‘Aww shucks’ attitude that makes it all the more endearing. Mr. Breyette is not only the Hunk of the Day, but a friend of mine as well, so this post means a little more than the usual beefcake we peddle here. I’ve had the honor of watching Michael’s career progress, his artwork evolve and develop, and his success soar for over a decade. Through it all, he’s maintained his artistic integrity, battling censorship and staying true to his vision of beauty.

His website gives a better idea of the amazing body of work he has created over the years, and he is quickly becoming one of the most prominent and well-known gay artists, following in the footsteps of the great Steve Walker, while forging new paths at the same time. As erotic and charged as so much of his work can be, it never verges into offensive or even pornographic territory (though my take on what’s porn likely differs from yours). The very nature of his medium softens the rough edges, blurring the most graphic content into something gorgeous. It’s all too easy to slip from the truly erotic into the sleazy, but Breyette never veers into the tasteless. There are no rules or definitive parameters that determine whether something is art or porn, but I know it when I see it, and Mr. Breyette has only ever created art.

Hunk of the Day: Max Emerson

max emerson 100

My hat goes off to anyone with a Twitter profile like Max Emerson, who describes himself as, “Model/blogger/actor/director/chipmunk enthusiast.” How can you not love a chipmunk enthusiast? The model part doesn’t hurt either, neither do the jovial antics on his own blog, Max’s Petting Zoo. (Trust me, you will want to pet.)

Hunk of the Day: Tavi Castro

tavi castro 100

Bodybuilder and fitness model Tavi Castro was a requested Hunk of the Day, and upon discovering these photos of him I quickly worked to populate this post. Mr. Castro’s website gives a detailed biographical background on his accomplishments, so I won’t sully this page with endless words when all you really want to do is scroll down.

Hunk of the Day: Gregory Nalbone

Gregory Nalbone101

Vocalist and entertainer Gregory Nalbone’s many talents may be slightly overshadowed by his many physical endowments – but don’t discount his attributes just because of how good-looking he is. Give him a chance in spite of such beauty. A turn as Hunk of the Day, however, demands a collection of sultry poses. Here is Mr. Nalbone doing that quite well.

Hunk of the Day Redux: Matthieu Charneau

matthieu charneau 001

This marks Matthieu Charneau’s second appearance as Hunk of the Day, but being that his first one is, in comparison, rather skimpy, I’ve beefed up his presence here for reasons that should be all too apparent. The French model and actor is still setting photo spreads afire with his edgy good looks and perfect pouty mouth – look for his mustached homage to Freddie Mercury in a few of these shots. Who ever said it was easy being a male model? Not these guys. Or this guy. Or him. Or him. Or them. Or even them.
