magic mike xxl 01

I added an extra ‘X’ and a pair of parentheses for my own dash of humor to the over-simplified title of this post, which celebrates the majesty of ‘Magic Mike XXL‘ which is opening this summer. I’ll be honest and admit to being a bad gay: I’ve never seen the first ‘Magic Mike’ because, quite frankly, I’m not a huge Channing Tatum fan. He’s been featured here a fair amount for all you wonderful people out there in the dark, but aside from cursory charm and sex appeal, I’ve never been all that impressed. (The sacrifices I make for this website.)

At any rate, as the men gear up for their return to the stripping stage I give you this quick look at the new posters for the sequel, as well as a linky look back at all that came before.

First, there was Channing Tatum. Entering the scene as, what else, an Abercrombie & Fitch male model, Mr. Tatum soon took the cinema by storm. I still don’t think I’ve ever seen one of his movies. What am I missing? He’s butted butts with Joe Mangianello, whose ample backside could easily take that of his counterpart any day of the week. They first squared their asses off here, then came back for a second round of ass dominance. Mr. Mangianello has been here a number of times as well, and is a favorite for his body and his facial hair – but not for his body hair (boo.)

Stephen “Twitch’ Boss is a new addition to the cast, but he’s already been featured here as a Hunk of the Day. Matt Bomer is one of the returning alumni, and his butt has been celebrated with quite solid reason. As for the remaining boys of summer, they’ll doff their shirts soon enough. I’ll just have to hear about it, because I don’t think I should see the sequel without having seen the original, and that’s not going to happen. Besides, why waste the time and money when posts like this break down the male nudity in one free and easy swoop.

Smells Sexy Like Ben Cohen

15 ben cohen 51500

Nobody told me that Ben Cohen had a new cologne out, not even the man himself, and we’re usually relatively tight. (Hey, the guy wishes me Happy Birthday when it’s my birthday!) I have seriously mixed feelings about this venture, however, as much as I am enamored with the man whose pretty face graces the bottle. I don’t know how it was produced, or who Mr. Cohen worked with, so there’s a chance it could be wonderful. Sarah Jessica Parker made her debut celebrity fragrance into something that was both popular with the masses and more than a few perfume connoisseurs, but that is the rare exception. For every lovely Parker, there’s some gaudy and god-awful Britney Spears massacre.

David Beckham has a few scents out there, none of which I’ve sampled. (For some reason I never think to sample cologne when I’m in a CVS.) Personally, I think it’s much safer to simply be the face of the product, rather than put yourself out there as the creator and namesake. (Think Nick Youngquest and Scott Eastwood. Be the face, not the name.) The arena into which Cohen spritzes his stuff is sacred ground, and for someone who worships at the altar of Tom Ford and bows down before Hermes and Amouage, it’s going to take a lot to impress. That is nothing against Mr. Cohen.

To give you an idea of how fussy I am when it comes to fragrance, I didn’t even like Madonna’s ‘Truth or Dare’ perfume enough to purchase it for myself, and I pretty much like everything she’s done. (I’ve got a goddamned children’s book she once wrote as proof. FYI, ‘Sex’ was a much better read.)

But until I try Ben Cohen on for myself (and I am anxiously awaiting a personal invite, ahem), I’ll zip my lips and simply enjoy him wearing it, with preferably nothing else.

Scorchingly Shirtless Scott Eastwood

scott eastwood 0001

Though Scott Eastwood has already been named a Hunk of the Day, these photos are worthy of a third post today. They come from the actor’s ad campaign for Davidoff’s Cool Water. It’s been ages since I’ve worn that icky fragrance (it’s really for high school) and though Mr. Eastwood looks hot and cool, he won’t be getting me to spritz that shit on myself anytime soon. It’s nice to see that he’s got the classic Davidoff closed-eyes/ecstasy-in-mid-splash pose down pat. Now if we can only get him to front (and back) an underwear campaign

By the way, jeans in water? Never a practical choice.

Adam Levine’s Naked Ass

adam levine nude 001

Adam Levine drops his towel and gets completely nude for these screen caps from his new video ‘This Summer’s Gonna Hurt Like a Motherfucker.’ Well, no one said ass-play was ever easy… Mr. Levine has taken his clothes off here before but for a strategically-placed pair of lucky hands. This time it’s on video and in motion, captured here for posteriority.

Returning to the Realm of Hunkdom

realm hunks 1

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a Hunk of the Day due to the Ogunquit recap of the last few days. (It’s the only way I have of extending the vacation, so I’m going to indulge.) Now that it’s finally over, we are back to our regularly-scheduled shirtless smut. Yet rather than dive in with a fresh face right away, let’s have a quick look back like we did a week ago at some former Hunks who have brightened this blog with their flawless bodies and supposedly scandalous nudity.

Tom Daley is always good for a bit of Speedo exposure, and a suit that barely contains his good stuff. It’s also almost Speedo season, so let the games begin.

The very first glimpse I offered of Nick Jonas was in his Hunk of the Day crowning a couple of years ago. That was before he took his shirt off and all hell broke loose.

It’s been ages since ‘Dawson’s Creek’ was on the telly, and to be honest I never watched it then either, but James Van Der Beek has survived the Hollywood machine and maintained a presence in La-La-Land, thanks in part to hot shots like these.

Henry Cavill is the former Hunk of the Day in the featured photo of this post, and this last pic as well. Previously the bulge-tastic Mr. Cavill proved just how super a man he can be in these nude pics.

Finally, lest Tom Daley get all the Speedo-clad glory, here is Matthew Mitcham’s original Hunk of the Day post. After all, it’s almost time…

In the Realm of Hunkdom

hunkdom 001

Given the regularity of posts here, some hunks may have escaped your notice. Others may be worth a second look. Either way, this is a brief encapsulation of several noteworthy gentlemen who have previously graced this site with their shirtless presence, and a few who have given us some naked presents as well.

The feature pic, as should always be the case, is a double shirtless gift of Zac Efron. He indulges most of us by regularly doffing his shirt, and recently gave the illusion of doffing everything else. (Somehow, nude-hued briefs work just as well on him.)

Nick Youngquest is another perennial favorite here, and I’m not sure why he hasn’t achieved such wide-spread acclaim as Ben Cohen or David Beckham. (I may be crossing my balls here, sportswise at least, so perhaps that’s the reason.) At any rate, he’s been here a number of notable times, including this magnificent view of his naked ass, these nude shots of his ass, and this partially-obscured view of his front.

Below are a pair of Hunks relatively new to the site. Charlie King has put his tush on display in his Hunk of the Day feature, and he does it again here, along with Fabio Mancini, who fills out his Armani briefs impeccably.

One of our most-recent Hunks is Morris Chestnut, the smoldering actor whose intense gaze defined the word ‘sultry.’

Finally, we close this Hunk-retrospective out with the ever-classy Benedict Cumberbatch, who made some of us into squealing Cumberbitches.

Hunk of the Day: Morris Chestnut

morris chestnut 100

Morris Chestnut is one of those actors that most people recognize because of the many films he’s done, but for some reason or another hasn’t become a household name. Perhaps this Hunk of the Day honor will do something to change that, because with this kind of body, he deserves greater recognition. He first hit the scene in 1991, as a cast member of ‘Boyz in the Hood.’ Subsequently he’s appeared in numerous films, including ‘Under Siege 2′, ‘G.I. Jane’, ‘The Best Man’, ‘The Brothers’ and ‘Breakin’ All the Rules.’ Now he’s a Hunk of the Day, the greatest résumé builder of all.

Hunk of the Day: Nick Wechsler

nick wechsler 101

The Hunk of the Day, Nick Wechsler, has done a fair share of American television, but I haven’t managed to see any of it. instead, I’ve focused on Cosmo centerfolds like the one featured here. I’m not quite sure how Cosmopolitan seems to have more pull than Playgirl when it comes to getting male celebrities to get fully nude, but rather than question it let’s just celebrate it. Congratulations Mr. Wechsler, you’ve arrived.

That Enormous Chris Hemsworth Bulge

hemsworth bulge 1000

Even if you know it’s fake, it’s still pretty hot. Here is that Chris Hemsworth bulge that everyone is talking about from the new ‘Vacation’ reboot (I didn’t see the original, so I won’t be seeing this one, even if Mr. Hemsworth‘s impressively enormous dick is dangling on display.) I do prefer this look to his longer-haired Thor shirtlessness, so at least he’s headed in the right direction. Just watch where he points that big long thing – and check it out in full motion thanks to carey579.

Even More Shirtless Zac Efron

shirtless zac e 101

There’s less skin on display than in this previous Zac Efron post, but there’s still enough to leave most of us salivating in his wake. For a not-so-lazy Friday, feast your weary eyes upon the buff miracle that is Mr. Zac Efron.

Hunk of the Day: Jerry Mitchell

jerry mitchell 101

Jerry Mitchell, the impresario of all the beauty and talent that is Broadway Bares, is our Hunk of the Day, and it’s an honor long overdue. Since originating that blockbuster fundraiser (which has brought us the scantily-clad bodies of Ricky Schroeder, Brandon RubendallJoshua Michael Brickman, and Peter Nelson), he has ensured that it is the sexiest event of the year, and when you combine skin with a winning and worthy cause, I’m always on board. Mr. Mitchell doesn’t just talk the sexy talk either, he has walked the sexy walk, as evidenced in these shots showcasing his banging body. This year’s Broadway Bares event looks to continue in the tradition of naughty-but-oh-so-good fun and fundraising with its ‘Top Bottoms of Burlesque‘ theme. There’s no more fitting, or fit, gentleman to start the season off right.

As far as other talents go, Mitchell is a renowned director and choreographer (in my dreams I still try to execute those kicks from ‘Kinky Boots’) as well as a seasoned performer who’s tread those glorious boards himself. The list of his credits is a long and impressive one, and shows no sign of stopping (it includes You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown, The Full Monty, HairsprayLa Cage aux Folles (2004 revival), Dirty Rotten ScoundrelsLegally Blonde: The MusicalCatch Me If You CanLove Never Dies and the aforementioned ‘Kinky Boots.’)

That sort of consistency and mettle in a crazy competitive career field is the mark of a legacy in the making. Mr. Mitchell has already secured his place in the firmament of Broadway stars, but to his credit he’s only just begun.

Hunk of the Day: Stephen “Twitch” Boss

Stephen  Boss 03

Dancer and choreographer (and future Magic Mike XXL star) Stephen Boss is the Hunk of the Day. Going by the nickname ‘Twitch’ (so christened because as a kid he couldn’t sit still), he looks to grind his way into our hearts when this summer’s XXL release finally unleashes the male strippers again.

Zac Efron, Practically Nude

zac efron near nude 1000

A man needs to know his best assets, and here’s a man who clearly does. Zac Efron has been naked here before, so while it shouldn’t be a big deal, these photos, from a movie in which he’s supposed to be naked, by rights should not be anything special. Yet somehow they are, so feast your eyes one more time upon the almost-naked form of Mr. Efron. No stranger to nudity, and certainly not to shirtlessness, Efron gives a bit of both, in nude-hued briefs and a strategically-placed stuffed animal. He’s still hiding the good bits, but I can respect that. A girl has to leave something to the imagination.

A Very Hunky Sunday

051taylor kinney 003

By the time this gets posted, I’ll hopefully be winding up a weekend in Cape Cod, during which I’ll have celebrated my friend JoAnn’s birthday. In order to escape, I’m pre-programming these posts so as to give myself some time away. There are a few busy months coming up as I prepare a new project, so this sort of auto-pilot post may be more prevalent than usual. (Special Guest Bloggers are still welcome to submit items! In fact, they are encouraged…)

In the meantime, there shouldn’t be too many people who complain about posts like this, particularly when guys like Taylor Kinney pull their pants down this far. He was a Hunk of the Day a while back, but these photos weren’t uncovered until a later date.

Jonathan Groff of ‘Glee’ and ‘Looking’ fame (and ‘Spring Awakening’ birth for those of us obsessed with Broadway) is proof that the best hunks are those who exude talent as well as beauty.

Matthew Camp is one of those multi-faceted hunks who wears several hats, and happily not much else. He’s been here a number of times, celebrating his fragrance as well as his Hunk crowning.

Last but not least is the increasingly nude Ashley Parker Angel, who never met a mirror his Instagram didn’t like.

Hunk of the Day: Ryan Guzman

ryan guzman 00

You’ve got to be pretty hot to make Jennifer Lopez fall for you in spite of your onscreen under-age-ness, and Ryan Guzman seems to fit the bill (if not his shirt). He’s the Hunk of the Day, and there’s nothing else to say.
