Ever since appearing in the Broadway buff in ‘Equus’, Daniel Radcliffe has all butt erased any lingering Harry Potter baggage, and continues to do so with these stills from a recent movie, in which he’s getting his gay sex scene groove on (I’ve omitted the racier photos, sorry.) Mr. Radcliffe has been naked here before, more than once, and surely there are those who won’t mind him naked again. This marks his first appearance as Hunk of the Day, however, but probably not his last.
This marks Todd Sanfield’s second coming as Hunk of the Day. He saw his first crowning when I tweeted him the other night, and he noticed that it was a long time ago, so I offered to grant him a rare double hunk honor (something reserved for the truly special guys like Harry Judd, Nick Adams and Alex Pettyfer for example.) Mr. Sanfield certainly constitutes something special, being one of those exceptional male models who turned what he learned on the other side of the lens into his own underwear line ~ The Todd Sanfield Collection. Of course, nobody wears his underwear better than Sanfield himself, as evidenced by the spectacular photos that follow.
With this month just under way, and the old ‘In like a lion’ adage seemingly holding true, I’m doing a recap to encapsulate some highlights from all of February, for those lucky casual visitors who haven’t quite made this a daily-must-stop. (I don’t blame you in the least – on a good day I’m a lot to take. On a bad day, it’s simply too much.) Let’s get on with this wintry look back… so we can soon spring ahead. Despite swirling snow, I know it’s coming…
February was perhaps best-known, at least in these parts, for two seminal sporting events: the Super Bowl and the Winter Olympics. The former featured this supposedly-naked commercial for David Beckham, the latter featured these definitely-naked Olympians.
Along those Olympic lines (but not bound solely to winter), we featured the hunky likes of Blake Skjellerup, Greg Rutherford, Tom Daley, Matteo Guarise, Darren Criss, Andrew Christian, Christof Innerhofer, Jeremy Abbott, Louis Smith, & Gus Kenworthy.
Plagued by troubling dreams and meddlesome nightmares, this was not the easiest month in which to find sweet sleep, but protection was at hand, and family gatherings like this one brightened the dark days. Cooking was a comfort too, but it was the company that made the difference.
A Vietnamese dinner, half home-made (just don’t call me Sandra Lee unless you have a connection to her boyfriend, who still has yet to make equitable salary reparation to his Management Confidential employees – ahem.)
The adorable and amazing Kristin Chenoweth lit up Schenectady better than anything GE could ever produce.
Can we be brave?
All you really need to click: Dan Osborne Naked.
Wait, all you REALLY need to click: Dan Osborne & Tom Daley in Speedos.
Ok, THIS IS THE ONE.
Sucking too hard on a lollipop?
For some less-than-super-human hunks who had nothing to do with the Olympics, we showed off David Mcintosh, Cole Horibe, Mark Wright, Marco Dapper, Pablo Hernandez, Josh Button, Ryan Steele, Perez Hilton, Lucien Laviscount, Alex Pettyfer, Jason Derulo, Nick Bateman, a naked Jake Gyllenhaal, a naked Stuart Reardon, a naked Tom Daley (!!!!) and the amazing Chris Salvatore bulging out of his own underwear line.
Cream… get on top!
Happy Birthday to my baby brother.
Why did my lover have to pick last night to get down?
A couple of recaps within a recap: some more gratuitously naked male celebrities, some ferociously hot (and bordering-on-obscene) bulges from these Hunks, and some ridiculously perfect male models. Plus, one hot naked ginger in delicious motion (the guy featured in the pics above).
And there’s always room for one more gratuitous Ben Cohen post.
Starting off the morning in a very sexy way… Just when you thought there couldn’t be any more naked male hotness from Stuart Reardon, along comes this post featuring more of his namesake and strongest asset. I love when a man knows his attributes, and how to use them to best advantage. In this instance, it’s his ample ass, on display as it was in this previous post. Had I known that this is what rugby could do for a body, I’d have picked up a ball years ago, instead of just sucking on them.
Olympian Greg Rutherford has been slightly naked here before, but never in GIF-animated motion like this. That always merits a second post. As does any ginger who deigns to take his clothes off. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: everybody loves a ginger.
Reports are that the photo below is actually Tom Daley’s naked butt, taken by a friend who just happened to be in the shower with him. I’m neither confirming nor denying the veracity of said reports, but it certainly looks plausible. Actually, it looks better than plausible. Mr. Daley has come close to revealing everything in the past, but this is the most he’s actually let slip. Still, might what’s behind the bulge be even better? We await word from the Daley camp.
Hairy hunk Jake Gyllenhaal has appeared naked here before (in this scintillating male nudity post) and as one of the more frequently nude male celebrities, he will likely appear here again. Since there haven’t been any complaints, here are a few GIFs of Mr. Gyllenhaal giving us another view of his naked assets.
Shirtless and naked male celebrities get a lot of attention here, and this Saturday post, designed for my time in Boston, will do nothing to curb the sexy shirtless appeal for which many of you visit this site. It’s time for a brief look back at some classic guys who have garnered rave reviews whenever they doff their shirts. While no one is nude just yet (wait for it…) these guys are too hot not to feature again.
First up is David Beckham, who models the latest in his underwear line for H&M. While I’m not a huge fan of the clothing, I like the way he sells it. Far lesser stars would never have shown themselves in the briefs that Mr. Beckham braves, and far bigger stars wouldn’t have the balls either. Beckham beats both quite handily.
(On a side-note, one can’t mention Mr. Beckham without mentioning his only competition for sexiest underwear-shucker ~ Ben Cohen.
Another favorite shirtless male who’s not afraid to get a little naked now and then is Chris Evans. As the Captain of our country, Mr. Evans fights for truth and freedom and the right to take off his shorts and jump in Boston Harbor. (We may not utilize all of our rights, but I’m glad they’re there.)
More recently, Dan Osborne has been seen here in his altogether, in several breathtaking GIFs and also chumming it up with fellow Speedo-clad diver Tom Daley. (Whom you’ve seen here over and over again.) Mr. Osborne is no stranger to male nudity, and he seems to be the kind of 21st century guy who embraces the glances of men and women alike. Desire is desire, and flattery is flattery. And when you’ve got a body like that, well, you can embrace it all.
Last but most certainly not least is Joe Manganiello. He battled Channing Tatum for the best butt and the result was a virtual draw. (We need to see them again.) Some battles are better when there’s no Victor. Or Victor.
You may be getting sick of Dan Osborne baring his male nudity here, but if you’re not, you’ve come to the right post. This one features the posterior of Mr. Osborne, which previous GIFs only hinted at. Who knew when he was named Hunk of the Day back in last October or prancing around as a shirtless Santa that he’d practically demand a category all to himself, a la David Beckham, Ben Cohen, Madonna, Tom Daley, and Tom Ford? Well, I supposed this naked post gave some indication of the Speedo splash he was about to make…
Daniel Osborne has been featured a number of times on this site – for his Hunk of the Day coronation, some sexy Santa poses, and some funny Tom Daley action. Now we have these GIFs, which merit their own post, and so you see them here. Mr. Osborne may have no greater claim to fame other than gratuitous skin shots like these, but let’s face it, that’s more than enough. Any time there’s a nude male celebrity, we’ll have his back.
And a bonus shot of Mr. Osborne with Tom Daley in a Speedo.
In honor of the upcoming Winter Olympics, let’s take a look back at some of the shirtless shenanigans that took place during prior Olympic Games. Figure skating and diving represent most of my interest for the Winter and Summer games respectively, and several familiar figures dominated the scene.
First up is Tom Daley, who has his own ‘Category’ here (much like David Beckham and Ben Cohen). The GIFs displayed here (in which Mr. Daley all but ogles Dan Osbourne) are a fun treat, but it’s his penchant for wearing a skimpy Speedo that forms most of his previous pictorial posts.
Second, we have Michael Phelps. A swimmer with a long, lithe torso and a command of the water that rivals most fish. Mr. Phelps used to favor the Speedo before moving into those knee-length trunks (the only saving grace of which is how low-slung they like to wear them). Thankfully, those Speedo posts live on…
During the last Summer Olympics, I watched gymnastics for the first time, which was highlighted by the muscular magnificence of the naked male forms of Epke Zonderland (here and here) and Danell Leyva.
Winter necessitates far more clothing coverage, which is unfortunate, but for racy photo shoots some of the figure skaters will take it all off. Case in point was our last Olympic figure skating champion Evan Lysacek, who got all artsy and naked here. Johnny Weir has become a bit of an embarrassment with his lackadaisical (if not outright dumb) nonchalance over Russia’s anti-gay laws, but he’s been here too, so for accuracy and full-disclosure I’ll remind you of this post.
This year will bring a new crop of figure skating gentlemen, and with any luck they’ll have bulbous bottoms, thighs of steel, and enough bedazzled lycra to inspire a whole new generation of boys to glide around on shag carpeting like it was the ice capades. Wait, was that just me?
The title of this post is a bit of a misnomer, but if we take ‘lonely’ to simply indicate the state of being alone, it fits. This season, I’ve decided to make a concerted effort to see all (or most) of the Oscar-nominated films. (It was much easier when the Academy only nominated four or five – today there are a total of nine nominees, which makes it both time and money consuming, but a noble endeavor nonetheless.)
I began in Boston a few weeks ago, when a day of heavy rain forced most of us inside. I had just made it to the Loews at Boston Common when it started to come down. ‘American Hustle’ was the choice that morning, and though it was still early (just 11 AM) I picked up a large popcorn and a soda and made my way into a largely empty theater. I was alone, but seeing movies on my own has never bothered me. In fact, it was a favorite past-time when I was going to Brandeis, and continues to be to this day.
On weekends, I’d board the train into the city and arrive with no plan or anything to do. When the weather was iffy I’d peruse the Boston Phoenix to see which movies were playing and where. Back then, there were a couple of theaters that no longer exist – the one at Copley Square, in the Copley Mall (where Barneys now resides) and the one across from the Sheraton near Hynes Convention Center (which now houses King’s Bowling Alley and entertainment complex).
Armed with a book and a big container of popcorn, I’d arrive early and stake out a seat slightly off-center, and slightly toward the back. I liked being alone, and I didn’t like when people tried to talk to me. Most times, though, they left a single guy chomping down on popcorn relatively alone.
Looking back, it may have been a form of escape masquerading as something more. A way of avoiding real-life, or maybe I was just trying to avoid my college classmates, most of whom struck me as immature and foolish. (I didn’t think I was better than them, I simply didn’t share their interests. And, I’ll admit, I didn’t make much of an effort to get to know anyone that well. It was better to go into Boston and be alone.)
This past weekend, I saw two more of the nominated movies – ‘Gravity’ and ‘Her’ – on my own. Early matinees, with popcorn as an early lunch. I enjoyed them both, but was bowled over by neither. Next up will be ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’ and ‘12 Years A Slave’. So far, I’d give the Oscar edge to ‘American Hustle’, even if the first twenty minutes of that film left much to be desired. For those keeping track, here are the Oscar-nominated films for 2014:
“Dallas Buyers Club”
“12 Years a Slave”
“The Wolf of Wall Street”
As for ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’, while Leonardo DiCaprio has already been a Hunk of the Day, he was never quite this naked, and he certainly never had anything shoved up his ass like he does here. Who needs gay porn with scenes like this?
A member of the boy band Blue, this is Duncan James. Rumored to be gay, or at least bisexual, according to Mr. James himself, it seems the world is less and less concerned by such “news”. That’s a good thing, and let’s face it, how many people are genuinely shocked that a member of a boy band turns out to like other boys? I don’t know any of Blue’s music, but if I can get on board with a One Direction song, I may have to give them a listen.
Seeing as how tomorrow marks a very special Hunk of the Day post (trust me, you don’t want to miss it – the guy’s so hot he only goes by his first name), let’s look back at some of the notable pre-cursors for this worthy honor. Included in this recap are only the biggest names who have been lucky enough to have named a Hunk of the Day. It takes a certain amount of charisma, star power, beauty and fitness to be so honored – and it helps if you have the confidence to take your clothes off often and everywhere.
First up is that triple-threat Justin Timberlake. He brought sexy back in myriad ways over the years, and now he’s bringing it back on the road in his upcoming tour. Second up is Ashton Kutcher, who seems to have never a met a movie or television role (or talk show for that matter) where he didn’t show off his naked self in some way, shape, or shapely-form.
Third, last year’s Sexiest Man of the Year, Channing Tatum, shows off why he won that title, and how he got his start as a male stripper. Fourth, a very naked and nude Chris Evans, who looks better that way. Fifth, because number five is alive, is a guy so popular that he gets his very own category: Tom Daley. Though he’s only been down to his Speedo here, it was more than enough.
Speaking of guys who have their own categories, let’s not forget that sexy stalwart duo from across the pond: Ben Cohen and David Beckham. Both Hunks of the Day, and quite a bit more, they’ve done their part to raise the hotness factor of this site.
Finally, another pair of nude male celebrities for your man-candy enjoyment: the one-two punch of Kellan Lutz and Chris Hemsworth. In a match-up between Hercules and Thor, on whom would you place your bets?
NFL player Colin Kaepernick, of the San Francisco 49ers, is the Hunk of the Day. He shows up at a fitting moment, as we are immersed in the heart of football season. Not that it has anything to do with me. I haven’t been big on the football thing since the year Madonna performed at the Super Bowl. That doesn’t look likely to change much this year, if Bruno Mars is the half-time performer as has been reported. It’s going to take more than Mr. Kaepernick to get me to tune in, and until the players themselves regularly start having wardrobe malfunctions, I’m not interested.
