Hunk of the Day: James Van Der Beek

james van der beek 1001

Oh Dawson, how many 90’s fantasies did you fuel, how many of us dreamt of climbing into your bedroom late at night and sneaking out before the break of dawn? To be honest, I was not one of them – my appreciation for Hunk of the Day James Van Der Beek blossomed much later, when he grew some hair on his chest. A saucy and hilarious DILF clip fueled the fire, as he bounced his bountiful butt in a pair of khakis setting all of us who came of age in the 90’s into a nostalgic swoon. Today he’s an actor and father, both roles he seems to relish, and that seem to agree with him. He’s back on television in a new sitcom, ‘Friends With Better Lives’, and given his comedic talents (somewhat squandered on the dramatic doings of ‘Dawson’s Creek,’ but showcased on ‘Don’t Trust The Bitch in Apt. 23’) he may be back where he belongs.

Hunk of the Day: Chris Meloni

chris meloni 101

Someone who has a sense of humor about his own beauteous gluteus maximus is Hunk of the Day Chris Meloni. Previously known for baring his butt on the prison series ‘Oz’, he reportedly responded to a question of whether he’s surprised by his gay fan-base by cheekily saying, “With the ass that I’m sporting? No.”

Such well-deserved pride in one’s backside is always a treat, especially to watch and witness.

Hunk of the Day: Ben Elliott

ben elliot 101

A native of Hamburg, NY, the Hunk of the Day is Ben Elliott. An actor who got his start modeling in Manhattan, Mr. Elliott currently calls Hollywood his home. With those puppy dog eyes, and that sprinkling of hair on his chest, his star seems to be on the rise in the West. More improbable things have happened. I wish him all the luck in the world.

“His face will make the heavens so beautiful that the world will fall in love with the night and forget about the garish sun.” ~ William Shakespeare

His beauty shall in these black lines be seen, and they shall live, and he in them still green.” ~ William Shakespeare

“So long as men can breathe, or eyes can see,
So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.”
~ William Shakespeare

What a piece of work is a man! How noble in reason, how infinite in faculty! In form and moving how express and admirable! In action how like an angel, in apprehension how like a god! The beauty of the world. The paragon of animals.” ~ William Shakespeare

Captain Chris, Shirtless American Hero

Chris Evans

In preparation for the upcoming ‘Captain America: The Winter Festival Soldier’, I’ve been advised by my accompaniment Skip to see the first film – ‘Captain America: The First Avenger.’ Both star the gentleman seen to such fine effect here: Chris Evans. He’s been featured a number of times in these parts, mostly due to his penchant for shirtless scenes and photo shoots (a happy custom that became so common that his publicist or manager started to shut them down – BOO!) He can be seen in action pulling down his pants in one of the greatest GIFs ever here, or in shirtless stills here, or naked butt for a towel here.

At any rate, here are a few taken before the shirtless embargo.

British Bums: Cohen, Daley, & Judd

british bums 1

While the cock may have gotten a bit of notice lately, this site has always been about the butt. More specifically, the British bum, those across-the-pond glory-holes of Ben Cohen, Tom Daley, and Harry Judd – each of whom has been featured here before. Sometimes Mondays demand a more leisurely entry, like through the back-end.

Hunk of the Day: Jason Beitel

jason beitel 1000

Most recently appearing in the Cirque de Soleil ‘Love’ show in Las Vegas, this is Hunk of the Day Jason Beitel, perhaps best-known in gay circles as one of the back-up dancers for a Kylie Minogue tour or two. His website has him listed as a Cirque performer now, which is very exciting (it’s the only thing I found slightly worthwhile in Las Vegas.)

Fursday

chest hair 100

A fittingly furry post for Thursday, this is an ode to the hairy male form, those hirsute guys who have the confidence and taste not to shave off all their body hair. The hairless look is depressingly epidemic, with men under the mistaken belief that it enhances the appearance of muscle and definition. The truth is, properly maintained chest hair can do the same thing, and it often grows in along the most flattering contours. (Besides, if you don’t have much definition or a chiseled six-pack to begin with, no amount of follicle pruning is going to change that.)

I’m all for a bit of judicious trimming when it comes to body hair. There are some places where you just don’t want it – at least, not too much of it. (I’m thinking of the back and shoulders. Only one creature can pull off yeti, and mostly because we’ve never seen it.) Fortunately, most cultural indicators are pointing to the chest hair embargo coming to a desirable end. Leave it to the gays to bring chest hair back into vogue, and leave it to the straight guys to follow a few years later. It’s happening, and that’s a good thing.

One of the furriest guys ever requested here is Mark Ruffalo, whose thick mane merits mention again. Also of note is the thrillingly-thatched chest of male model Josh Wald.

Scott Caan should be in the Chest Hair Hall of Fame for his lovely carpet, while Matt Goss and his otter designation should be featured here simply for his appreciation of chest hair. Jon Hamm has mostly been noticed for his package, but his treasure trail is a thing of wonder as well.

There are those who vacillate between furry and fur-free. Henry Cavill, Jesse Metcalfe, Chris Evans, Matthew Morrison and Stephen Dorff for example. All four have had unfortunate moments when they’ve gotten rid of all their chest hair, and looked like plucked chickens for it. When it comes to manscaping, I always advise to err on the side of the hair. It’s easier to take more off than put it back on. Surely you have heard the horror stories of the drag queen who shaved off her eyebrows and they never grew back. It’s not a good look in the light of day. Chest hair is less apparent than eyebrows for those of us who don’t live on the beach, but you still don’t want to mess around with it too much.

For our final featured forest-thick chest of hair, I have but two words for you: Ben Cohen. He trimmed quite a bit of it off for his recent dancing contest, but I have faith he’ll let it return to all its former bushy glory – and long may he mane.

The Great & Gratuitous Ginger Post

ginger 100

In honor of this Irish-themed day, here we have a collection of red-heads to get your ginger groove going. Gingers have long been a favorite feature here, with the likes of Prince Harry, Sean Patrick Davey, Greg Rutherford, and Ricky Schroeder.

In a new photo exhibition by Thomas Knights, ‘Red Hot,’ the ginger takes pride of place as an object of affection and desire. These photos more than prove that. Happy Ginger Ogling!

Hunk of the Day: Ryan Carnes

ryan carnes 101

Better-known in these gay circles as the star of gay-themed ‘Eating Out’, Ryan Carnes is the Hunk of the Day. Currently, he is back on television, returning to the soap opera ‘General Hospital’ (which may explain why I haven’t seen him.) My soaps of choice were all on NBC… does anyone remember ‘Generations’? One of the catchiest opening themes ever…

Hunk of the Day: Enrique Iglesias

enrique iglesias 101

Though he has proclaimed himself a grower-not-a-shower in the size department, Enrique Iglesias more than makes up for it elsewhere, most notably in his bi-lingual crooning. A well-developed body doesn’t hurt either, which makes his steamy half-naked music videos all the more impressively effective. As Hunk of the Day, he joins fellow shirtless singers like Robin Thicke, Justin Timberlake, Nick Jonas, Joe Jonas, Keith Urban, Adam Lambert, Brett Gleason, Lance Bass, Jake Shears, Jon Bon Jovi, Sam Harris, Steve Grand, Josh Groban, Adam Levine, Adam Levine, Adam Levine, Adam Levine and Adam Levine (and you’re going to want to click on each of those Adams.)

Hunk of the Day: Robbie Rogers

robbie rogers shirtless 1

With the advent of Jason Collins and Michael Sam, and rising support from straight allies within the sports community, more players are feeling safe and comfortable to come out as gay. Case in point is today’s featured Hunk, Robbie Rogers. A soccer player for the Los Angeles Galaxy (of David Beckham shirtless fame) Mr. Rogers is one of the latest sports figures to publically come out, so we congratulate him for his courage and bravery. It’s still a risky thing to do, but with every Robbie Rogers we inch closer to the way it should be.

Hunky Henry Cavill, Shirtless & Wet

henry cavill shirtless

Just because Mr. Cavill looks even better in motion, I present to you the glorious GIFs seen below. He’s been here naked before as one of the more hotter Hunks of the Day (that one’s always worth a revisit) and hopefully he’ll do something to put his ass back here again. In the meantime, drool and wipe, drool and wipe.

Hunk of the Day: Daniel Radcliffe, Naked Again

daniel radcliffe shirtless

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.

A Shirtless Oscar Winner

jared leto naked 1

Last night, while watching the Oscars (but not doing a big bitchy Oscar post like last year, because I just wasn’t up for it) I asked someone to give me an idea for this post. My Twitter friend Alexander recommended Jared Leto through the years. And so, here you go. I remember when he first emoted as Jordan Catalano on ‘My So-Called Life.’ I think I might have liked him a bit more back then, when his hair was a little shorter. But there are those who like a Christ-cut, and pose, and he gives that, and more, with some help from photographer Terry Anderson.

The Great Male Model Retrospective

naked male model 1000

Male models, given far less credit (and money) than their female super-counterparts, have always been appreciated on this blog. More than lust or desire or frenzied acclaim, they are an inspiration. They help me put down that second danish, or walk by the bowl of M&M’s, or take the one flight of stairs instead of the elevator. Granted, none of that is turning me into a male model anytime soon, but if such inspiration is a starting point, why knock it? And why keep them hidden? Here, then, is a brief collection of those shirtless men who keep some of us on our toes. One of the greatest gifts that another person can give is inspiration; these hunks have proven most generous in that respect.

Let’s begin on a personal note, with a model whom I first met when he was just five years old. Who knew at the time that the thin, rambunctious cousin of my then-girlfriend would grow into such an admirable young man? Meet Calvin.

Someone I haven’t met (but if anyone can manage an introduction, please hook a guy up) is Noah Mills.

Two words: David Gandy. And since you can never get enough, another naked glimpse.

Two more words: Tyson Beckford.

In case you haven’t heard a bazillion times before, I prefer my male models not too closely-shaven. In fact, when it comes to chest hair, less depilatory action is more. As proven in these shirtless and nude shots of Josh Wald, Jared Allman (and he is all man), and Daniel Garofali (who just manages to keep enough on, and I don’t mean clothing).

Before he went all Fifty Shades of Sexy, Jamie Dornan was just another Hunk of the Day.

Cult favorite Benjamin Godfre always seemed a tad too edgy to ever be mainstream model material, and I love him all the more for it.

In addition to flaunting his nakedness in front of the camera, Todd Sanfield also produced a line of his own underwear, that he models better anyone else.

He may have been better-known as Madonna’s sexy boyfriend at one time, but Jesus Luz got some modeling gigs out of it, and with good reason.

Theres nothing better than a male model who can rock a colorful bow tie (and colorful square cut), such as Victor Ross does so winningly.

Calvin Klein has introduced a number of remarkable specimens over the years, a knack that continued with a nude Garrett Neff and an equally-naked David Agbodji.

Asia has unfortunately never been tapped as a great supplier of male models, but gentlemen like Choi Ho Jin should go some way toward correcting that. And Godfrey Gao has made his own sexy efforts as well.

Tom Ford, however, has been tapping male models for years, as richly evidenced by Juan Betancourt.

Brazil has also never been lacking when it comes to male models. See Caio Cesar take it all off.

Nobody pulls off fringed leather chaps like Rob Evans.

Nathan Owens brings us the shirtless and pants-less Days of Our Lives.

Dolce & Gabbana were largely responsible for putting Tyson Ballou on the male model map, and cartographers around the world should be ever grateful.

Finally, a man of fine ink, David Mcintosh, because an apple a day keeps the doctor away.
