Hunk of the Day: Mika

mika 001

It’s nice when an opening post leads into a closing post, and so we have another Mika moment, as the openly-gay singer-singwriter is also being named as the Hunk of the Day. He may not own up to being a model (and admits as much quite explicitly on ‘Popular Song‘) but he certainly has a certain appeal, and more than a few people are going to enjoy this post. There’s always something sexy about a singer. (See also Adam Levine, Lenny KravitzJustin Timberlake, Marques Houston, Keith Urban, Enrique IglesiasLuke Bryan, Trey Songz, and Jason Derulo.)

Hunk of the Day: Liam Payne

Liam Payne

There was a time when I would have known who this kid was, along with all his other bandmates and their various nicknames. As it stands, I had to look it all up. This is Liam Payne, the Hunk of the Day, who is part of One Direction. They’ve been featured here before for a certain Story, but I don’t believe any one of them was singled out. My days of boy-band-obsessing passed with ‘NSync and the Backstreet Boys. It’s time to let some other teenage girl pick up the slack.

Hunk of the Day: Duncan Mais

Sweeter than Duncan Hines, this is Hunk of the Day Duncan Mais. A British actor and model, Mr. Mais has appeared in ‘Captain America: The First Avenger,’ ‘X-Men: First Class,’ and ‘Snow White and the Huntsman.’ Give the guy his own franchise, he’s only one step away from Superhero glory.

Hunk of the Day: Noam Ash

noam ash 101

Some Hunks of the Day are hot and sexy, while others are cute and adorable. Occasionally, a man comes along who manages to be a bit of all of the above, along with displaying an astounding mix of creativity and talent. Such is the package of Noam Ash, co-creator, co-writer and star of the ‘My Gay Roommate‘ web series. (Austin Bening is his partner-in-creative-crime.)

I love anything that fosters and finds fun in straight/gay friendships, and Mr. Ash manages to do so while being witty and entertaining. I defy anyone to watch just one ‘My Gay Roommate’ episode and not click on to the next – they’re that addicting. Mr. Ash can also be sexy as hell, as illustrated by the ‘Art of Manscaping’ video below. Taint it grand?

The Collective Crotch Package

crotch 101

The butt has always garnered more than its fair share of praise and posting here, so today we pay homage to its frontal counterpoint – the crotch. A brief collection of gentlemen who have been here in the past have been called back to put what they’re packing on display for this scintillating Sunday catch-all post.

Let’s start with the man who turned me into a Bitcham, Mr. Matthew Mitcham, who recently collected another diving medal at the Commonwealth Games. He’s certainly in the right career field, at least when it comes to wardrobe, and he knows how to fill a Speedo.

Next up is a classic package-poser, David Beckham, whose junk has been prominently featured here a number of times. Here it is again, for all those who fantasize about being Posh Spice.

Shemar Moore was definitely packing the first time he was featured here as Hunk of the Day, but it’s his Junk of the Day that may catch your eye in this shot.

Male supermodel David Gandy has always supplied some dandy eye candy, the kind of sweet delight that makes everything all right.

Dan Osborne recently made a splash in some tight trousers, but it’s how he looks out of them that proves what he’s packing.

For the ginger-loving contingent, Greg Rutherford has bared front and back (a bonus butt-shot below for those who miss the booty) and it would appear that the carpet does indeed match the drapes. (Though in designing situations I would not advise such a thing.)

Finally, a little bit of Colby Melvin works wonders, even if his previous appearances here have proven there’s nothing very little about him.

Hunk of the Day: Billy Magnussen

Billy Magnussen 1

One of the princes of ‘Into the Woods’, the Hunk of the Day is Billy Magnussen. Recently Mr. Magnussen appeared on Broadway, opposite Sigourney Weaver in ‘Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike.’ Such a theatrical background should bode well for his turn in the movie version of the classic Sondheim musical. I’m guessing he won’t be in short-shorts or as nude as he is here, but a fully-clothed prince is always better than no prince at all. He was rumored to have been a contender to take the domineering lead in ’50 Shades of Grey’  in the role that eventually went to the equally-nude-friendly Jamie Dornan.

Hunk of the Day: John Barrowman

john barrowman 101

Believer it or not, it wasn’t ‘Doctor Who’ or ‘Torchwood’ that put John Barrowman on my radar. It was ‘Sunset Boulevard.’ Yes, Captain Jack fans, Mr. Barrowman gave voice to Joe Gillis on the stage long before he got all sci-fi. Not that I mind the transformation. As you can see in a few of these photos, Mr. Barrowman attends some Comic Con events, and isn’t afraid to drop his trousers to prove his gigantic fandom.

While his eyes are mesmerizing, and his looks are stunning, it may be his voice that lingers longest in the mind. Check out his performance of ’1000 Years’ to become a believer too. Oh yeah, he’s gay too. Bonus!

Hunk of the Day: James Magnussen

james magnussen 101

Perhaps this post should have been entitled, “How to properly fill out one’s underwear,” as that is precisely what James Magnussen is illustrating as the Hunk of the Day. Mr. Magnussen has the build of a swimmer, for the simple reason that he is a swimmer, of Olympic caliber, and stunning looks. While some could stand a little less clothing on him, these photos certainly give more than a hint as to what he has to offer.

Hunk of the Day: Chase Finlay

chase finlay 101

We’re on a ballet kick of late, with the likes of James Whiteside lifting his heels recently, and that bodacious bulging continues with this Hunk of the Day, Chase Finlay,  a principal dancer of the New York City Ballet. In poses that manage to be at turns graceful and humorous, with a mischievous glint and a gravity-defying physicality (credit to a few pics by Terry Richardson, who also captured Jared Leto and Brad Goreski) Finlay winningly exudes the artful expression of a ballet dancer in his prime.

Miscellaneous Man Candy

misc men 101

Every now and then a post comes along to catch all the miscellaneous pics of previously-featured Hunks that have been revealed in the time since their crowning glory. This is one of those posts, and it’s a catch-all for some heavy-hitting hunks that have already graced these virtual pages. We begin, as we often do, with Tom Daley – and it’s a very good place to start.  These shots are from his latest calendar. Everyone loves it when Tom gets wet, and Tom is more than game to please the fans.

Ronnie Kroell is another celebrity who knows how to treat his fans, as seen in this pair of pics. His workout regime is reaping wondrous rewards, most of which are easily visible to the naked, and thrilled, eye.  His work for the Friend Movement adds a layer of depth to such a pretty façade, and it feels good to celebrate someone whose inside is just as gorgeously-rendered as the outside.

This hairy shot of Jude Law, who bounced his naked ass around so sexily here, shows him aging in an impossibly hot manner. Chin up, man.

Finally, a pair of peeps whose butts merit their own post, but who will have to suffice with this major minor feature. First up is tennis champ Novak Djokovic, who previously posed in his black briefs and super smile.

Second, and bringing up the hottest rear ever, is Matthew Camp. Mr. Camp has been here a number of times before, notably for his fragrance, his looks, his scent, and his sexiness. This shot should cement his hunky status as he gears up for film stardom.

The Majesty of Mark MacKillop

mark mackillop - room XIV - 3

He’s been featured here before, but since his new book is available to order now, it seems a fitting moment to post a feature on Mark MacKillop. ‘Rm. XIV’ is Mr. MacKillop’s coffee-table book collection of photos taken during a ‘West Side Story’ touring stint in Europe. He described the tour as a challenge that left him feeling isolated, which, to our benefit, resulted in this collection of intimate portraits.

With an introduction penned by ‘Kinky Boots’ star Billy Porter, the book comes with Broadway’s blessing, and some serious theatrical fairy dust. MacKillop is one of those rare performers who seems inwardly shy and introverted, while thrilling the world with his talent and craft. ‘Rm. XIV’ offers a peek behind the veil, with the perfect alchemy of intimacy and intrusiveness.

The book can be ordered here, and a few limited-edition versions are still available.

Hunk of the Day: Chris Pratt

chris pratt shirtless 1

Star of the upcoming ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’, Chris Pratt worked his ass off with work-outs and healthy-eating to achieve the  results seen here. As such, he has earned the honor of being named the Hunk of the Day. If I had a trainer and a million dollars I could do the same thing. Not to detract from the fine work Mr. Pratt has crafted, I’m just saying… Tomorrow I’m hoping to see the new movie, and not just because of the shirtless GIF seen here. Plot and storyline and character development are just as important.

Zac Efron & Bear Grylls, Shirtless & Going Down


As if doffing his shirt and riding a majestic steed through water wasn’t fantasy-island enough, here we have Zac Efron getting his shirt off with Bear Grylls, and repelling down a cliff to get even wetter. Say what you may about Mr. Efron, he knows his freaking audience. Horses, water, shirtless Bears… oh my.

And just to make things easier for you, here is a naked Zac Efron, and a naked Bear Grylls. Double your pleasure, double your fun.

Zac Efron, Shirtless & Riding a Steed


I’ve done my fair share of weird things without wearing a shirt, but Zac Efron gallops into a whole other realm of sexiness and pulpy-page-turner fantasy with the photo below. I still contend that he looks better naked and in motion.

Michael Phelps Nude for ESPN’s Naked Issue

michael phelps nude 101

(Ok, they call it the Body Issue, but it’s really the Naked Issue.) It would seem that there’s not much of a difference between donning a Speedo and donning a birthday suit, but Michael Phelps and his tan lines prove otherwise. The difference is profound, and sexy, and folks looking to see Mr. Phelps in all his glory need only pick up the latest ‘Naked Issue’ of ESPN Magazine. Said source has been supplying images of nude athletes for several years now, including Evan LysacekOguchi Onyewu, Matt Harvey, Giancarlo StantonTomáš Berdych, and the infamous Rob Gronkowski (more than once).

Mr. Phelps is no stranger to baring his body, having appeared on this site several times, notably in the shower and in his Speedo. Never before, however, have we seen Michael Phelps naked – until now. Was it worth the wait? You tell me. I will say this much: tan lines are back.

UPDATE: A better look at Michael Phelps nude.
