Hunky Reprise: Ricky Schroeder

Ricky A Schroeder 101

Red-hot gingers have long been a favorite here, and Ricky Schroeder proves no exception. Though he’s already been named a Hunk of the Day, he’s bulked up and toned himself into an even more desirable specimen, as evidenced by his recent Broadway Solo Strips show. As part of this year’s Broadway Bares event, he’ll be doffing more clothing in the near future, and if you are interested in supporting him, check out his donation page here (all benefits go to Broadway Cares/ Equity Fights AIDS). I’m all for a good cause, particularly when it comes cloaked in such prettiness.

Mr. Schroeder can go from scorching drag queen to perfectly-pumped hunk in the flick of wig, as these photos will attest, and it’s a toss-up as to which version is hotter. He’s also on Twitter at @RickyASchroeder for those who want to Tweet his ass. (And you know you do.)

{All photographs graciously provided by Mr. Schroeder.}

And here’s a scintillating tease of his Broadway Strips performance – ooh la la!

Neil Patrick Harris: Almost Nude


This is a tide-you-over post until my review of ‘Hedwig and the Angry Inch‘ gets posted in a quick tick-tock during this string of Broadway posts. For now, thank the blessed folks at Rolling Stone for this nifty and racy cover shot of Neil Patrick Harris naked but for a strategically placed (and questionably hung) top hat. Mr. Harris has already been christened a Hunk of the Day here, but he’s in a different sort of shape for his role as Hedwig. More on that later… for now, enjoy the near-nudity, and the official cover.

Hunk of the Day: Adrian Grenier

Adrian Grenier

There’s a fun reason for this Hunk of the Day selection, that will be revealed later today. For now I will just say that he does play a part in the New York adventure that is currently taking place here. This is Adrian Grenier, whom some people know from his role on HBO’s ‘Entourage’. I’ve never seen a single episode of that show, but I did enjoy Mr. Grenier’s all-too-brief turn in ‘The Devil Wears Prada,’ in which he provided a much-needed dose of male cuteness.

Hunk of the Day: Peter Nelson

peter nelson 11

Continuing our shirtless Broadway kick of late, the Hunk of the Day is Peter Nelson. Notable credits include hoofing it through ‘Chicago’ and ‘Cinderella’ and displaying his finest assets in ‘Broadway Bares.’ His dance background shows with every one of his moves, resulting in that rather perfectly-sculpted body, and he’s got the brains to back it all up, with a Bachelor’s degree in Neuroscience. Thankfully for us, he’s put the medical career on the shelf while he pursues (and attains) theatrical work.

Naked Broadway Hunks

14 broadway bares 101

The city is gearing up for this year’s big Broadway Bares event, so it seems as good a time as any to do a gratuitous post of the nude males of the Broadway stage. The gentlemen featured here are, I believe, all going to be a part of the naked festivities, and a few have graced this website in the almost-altogether as well such as Joshua Michael Brickman, Brandon RubendallTodd Hanebrink, Ricky Schroeder, and Nick Kenkel.

Other Broadway notables who took their shirts off here include Christopher Johnstone, Nick Adams, Adam Jacobs, and Mario Lopez (a Broadway baby for his ‘Chorus Line’ appearance.)

One day I’ll make it to the Broadway Bares event, but for now I’ll rely on Matthew Rettenmund’s encyclopedic recaps (and super-sexy pics and videos) at the bodacious Boy Culture blog.

Hunk of the Day: Girish Taurani

Girish Taurani 1

This Hunk of the Day makes me want to throw a Bollywood Party – and that may not be such a bad idea this summer. His name is Girish Taurani, and he made his film debut last year in ‘Ramaiya Vastavaiya.’ Smoldering dark eyes, thick mane of wavy hair, and a body only the young can manage, he’s a welcome addition to the pantheon of Hunkdom we’ve assembled here over the past few years.

Shirtless Royalty: Prince Harry

prince harry 1002

Leave it to Prince Harry to provide the only tantalizingly shirtless glimpses of the Royal Family – but really, what other member would you rather see sans clothing? I think Prince William has passed his expiration date, even if he is destined for the throne. Kings are rarely sexy. Princes on the other hand can be very sexy. Especially when they’re totally starkers. (That means naked.)

Once again: everyone loves a ginger.

That’s James Franco Nude?

james franco nude 1

No, not really. And we know gratuitous male nudity here. Below is the supposed “nude selfie” that James Franco posted in the middle of the night, then quickly deleted. Boo on both. First of all, it’s not nudity. Second, why the sudden shyness for such a relatively innocent photograph? I love Mr. Franco’s collection of selfies, shirtless and otherwise, as well as his philosophical take on the role selfies play in our culture, so I’m not sure why he so precipitously took the pic below off his Instagram account. Show some balls!

Of course, it’s not Franco’s fault that the media has gone and made something out of nothing. It’s quick-on-the-draw and desperate-for-headlines bloggers like myself who said it was a naked selfie, but I like to delve a deeper. So for now, this gets categorized under ‘Shirtless Male Celebrities‘ and ‘Underwear‘, but not quite ‘Gratuitous Nudity.’ He’ll have to work harder for that. (Like he did in this post, where he gives a glimpse of his bare ass.)

A May Day Spattering of Male Celebrities in their Underwear

14 male celeb underwear 1

To christen this lusty month of May, let us take a look-see at some of the men who have already been featured on this site… in their underwear (and maybe out of it.) A guy in his skivvies can be a glorious thing to behold – but it all depends on the guy and his underwear. (Donald Trump in a pair of rumpled boxer shorts, for example, not so much. Same goes for Justin Bieber – eww to all the Beliebers.) The gentlemen below him, however, look better in precisely that mode.

Far more exciting than the Biebs is Chris Salvatore, which makes sense seeing as how he just released his first line of underwear, which includes the pretty-in-pink number he so perfectly fills out here.

Speaking of pink, check out the shirtless Aaron Schock, who, while not in his underwear here, might as well be. Sooner or later his naked Grindr texts are going to hit the internet, mark my words.

The amazing Russell Tovey is no stranger to selfies in his skivvies, and I have yet to hear a complaint.

While the following photo is not Tom Daley in his underwear, or even his Speedo, it’s welcome for its sunny and shirtless aspect – a much-needed blast of happiness and good weather from anywhere other than the Northeast right now.

And finally, bringing up the rear, literally and figuratively, is Harry Judd. Decidedly OUT of his underwear, as Mr. Judd often is. I’m still not hearing any complaints.

Hunk of the Day: Steve Jones

steve jones shirtless 101

Another stud from across the pond, Steve Jones is the Hunk of the Day. A presenter and host (or are they one and the same?) Mr. Jones has done some work on these shores as well, in ‘The X Factor’ I believe, and for that he made a shirtless stop-over at ‘Ellen.’ I’m not sure he realizes this, but I’ve always had a thing for Welsh boys. Someone let him know.

Those Promiscuous Gays

14 gay date 1

Sometimes it seems we need a Visio Organizational Chart to keep track of the gay-listers and their dating histories. Politically-incorrect title of this post aside, and stereotypical characterizations of gay men as sex-obsessed bed-hoppers suspended, it’s interesting to note how we navigate the tumultuous waters of dating – particularly when the spotlight of this online-age sees almost all.

Let’s take, for instance, the tangled web of the men featured in this post. We begin with Reichen Lehmkuhl, who started off, if I remember correctly, as a model gracing the cover of Instinct. From there, his star rose in ‘The Amazing Race’ and then the gay-themed soap ‘Dante’s Cove’. He capped off the last decade with a stint on the gay reality series ‘The A-List.’ (And let’s not forget his Hunk of the Day honor.) He first dated Chip Arndt, then moved on to Lance Bass. And Rodiney Santiago (seen above.) And Ryan Barry (seen below.)

As for Lance Bass, he moved on to Pedro Andrade. And Ben Thigpen. And Michal Turchin, to whom he is now engaged. Let’s end on that happy note, because pretty soon the exes may start dating each other, and that’s going to make heads explode.

(Actually, maybe it’s just two guys who dated a lot of other guys…)

Hunk of the Day: Pedro Andrade

Pedro Andrade1001

Here’s a new hyphenate that has not been used for a Hunk of the Day before: journalist-actor-model ~ and in this case it refers to Pedro Andrade. Hailing from Brazil, Señor Andrade is a former boyfriend of former Hunk of the Day Lance Bass. Personally, I think… well, never mind what I think on who traded up or down. And for all the former going on, the current is sizzling hot.

Hunk of the Day: Matt Cardle

matt cardle 101

Our Hunk of the Day hails from an ocean away, and first came to the public’s notice on ‘The X Factor.’ (Sort of the UK’s version of ‘American Idol’.) Matt Cardle has since released a couple of albums while honing his singing and song-writing skills, and he’s not too hard on the eyes either.

Those Shirtless Zac Efron GIFs

zac efron shirtless 1001

When Zac Efron accepted his MTV Movie Award for ‘Best Shirtless Performance’ or something, he made good on a promise to do so shirtless. Personally, I think he should have done it pants-less, but beggars can’t be choosers. Besides, that’s what this naked Zac Efron post is for. This stunt is a blatant pandering to have his own sub-category, like Tom Daley, Ben Cohen, or David Beckham, but Mr. Efron is going to have to do a lot more in his underwear before that honor gets bestowed.

The Butt Report

male butt 101

Since we just featured The Bulge Report, it seems only fair to give a shake to the other end of the action. Here’s a collection of the backsides that have brought such joy to some of you over the years. While there’s a bit of a full-frontal male nudity embargo on this site, the butt has always been all access, all the time. Rear entry has never been denied in these parts…

The posterior of aptly-named Stuart Reardon may be one of the hottest to burn up this site’s stats, so get clicking.

Male model David Gandy provided ample eye candy when he turned around to bump and grind it.

It’s a tossed-salad-toss-up as to which side of Benjamin Godfre is better – the back or the front – so you can decide for yourself by feasting your eyes upon both here.

Todd Sanfield may have a stunning underwear line, but he’s better when baring his backside sans underwear altogether.

Dan Savage’s better half, Terry Miller, may try keeping his booty in a Speedo, but it just barely fits.

The amazing ass of Scott Herman is quite a sight to behold (and lest anyone think Mr. Herman is nothing more than a banging butt, check out his Straight Ally profile.)

Dan Osborne’s been featured here for his bulge, but he’s got an equally-admirable booty, as seen here.

And last but most certainly not least, Harry Judd proved his butt has remained in perfect shape since he first bared it a few years ago.

PS – Who’s going to start a campaign to get David Beckham to show his tush?
