Revisiting Ryan Phillippe at 40

ryan phillippe 1001

Seeing as how I’ve just joined the 40-and-over club, I’ve been ruminating on how other men are handling the quad-decade mark, so when these photos of a 40-year-old Ryan Phillippe showed up online, I felt a little relief at being in such hot and sexy company. Though I’m woefully aware of being a far cry from the shape that Mr. Phillippe has crafted for himself at the four-decade mark, but he’s definitely an inspiration (and very deservedly a former Hunk of the Day). This is the sort of thing that people post on their refrigerator to deter them from sneaking a gallon of ice cream in the heat of the night. I’ve got a year to work such magic…

Hunk of the Day: Miles Teller

miles teller 101

Though his latest film, the why-did-they-even-bother ‘Fantastic Four’ remake, may have bombed, Miles Teller seems to be walking away unscathed, thanks to an unconventional sexiness and swagger that has Esquire magazine comparing him to a number of former film-greats (like Robert Mitchum). As Hunk of the Day, his almost-nakedness (but for a sock) had to be unearthed, but he’s here as much for said skin-exposure as he is for acting talent. His mesmerizing turn in ‘Whiplash’ was incredibly impressive, grounding the disturbing movie with a vulnerable heart. (Definitely worth a viewing, like Mr. Teller himself.)

PS – Bonus points for the matching naked butt shot he performed with Zac Efron.

Hunk of the Day: Steve Grand, One More Time

steve grand 1001

Sometimes a Speedo is just enough to make you a Hunk of the Day for a second time, especially when someone like Steve Grand is filling it. The featured photo here has drawn some questionable criticism from the ridiculously-critical gay crowd, who feel he might be playing up to gay stereotypes. Personally, I’ve never heard anything so ludicrous. The guy looks hot in skimpy swim wear! Show it off!

So many people are so quick to find fault with anything and everything, typing away behind their anonymous screen names, trolling and scrolling with ill-intent and self-serving sassiness. I piss on all that. Mr. Grand, you are fierce and fine and you rock that swimsuit better than anyone. Let he who can fill such a Speedo cast the first bone.

Classic Beefcake Pin-Ups

beefcake 101

This won’t go as far back as when those first beefcake pin-ups of muscle-bound men began appearing in service of ‘working out’ – those go back further than most of us realize. Instead, a round-up of more-recent beefcake posers, some classics and some should-be classics. Now and then an immaculate collection of a shirtless sort is needed. No time like the present… and speaking of presents

First up is the fabulously fit Phil Fusco. He inspires a lot of ‘F’ words, as evidenced here and in his very first featured post a while ago. He also fared finely in his first Hunk of the Day spot. In fact, he’s probably due for another…

Second, the ever-brilliant Ben Cohen, who is currently working on his autobiography, and his line of grooming products, is a must-see in these recent shirtless shots, exemplifying his hirsute fitness. (Rumors abound that he has an underwear photo shoot coming up.)

Third, the heroic Chris Evans, who is a timeless pin-up guy for any generation. He’s been in practically-naked GIFs here before, and completely nude as well. He also gets to represents some hot and heavy collections like these.

Finally, a gratuitous slice of ginger beefcake in the spectacular Seth Fornea. He too has played a stunning visual part on posts featuring male nudity and the like, or simply standing alone in his own glory.

Hunk of the Day: Scotty Dynamo

scotty dynamo 101

Once upon a time, a music video had the power to define an artist, firmly planting them on the pop culture map with one fell swoop of imagery and choreography. In a throwback to that time when videos had the eyes of the world, Scotty Dynamo has just released his latest, and it’s a doozy. The almost-criminally-catchy ‘Show Me Yours’ song and video, in which Mr. Dynamo gets hot and sweaty to his work-out groove, delivers a delicious not-so-surprise ending, and shows off Dynamo’s rockin’ bod to great effect. It’s more than enough to earn him his first Hunk of the Day honor. (By the way, this is probably the most entertaining coming-out I’ve ever seen, and that’s saying something.) Check out his YouTube channel for even more hotness.

A Grandly Gratuitous Pietro Boselli Post

pietro boselli 1001

When someone as physically fine as Pietro Boselli poses for an Attitude cover story, it deserves a post of its own. Mr. Boselli is the math teacher who took the gay internet by storm with his banging body and dreamy good looks, and he’s going even further in this photo shoot for the popular British rag. Of course he’s already been named a Hunk of the Day, but he’s likely due for a second run any day now. Enough of my yammering, you just want to see the goods.

The Ever-Impressive Ben Cohen

ben cohen hot 1

Hot on the heels of his grooming product release (including a citrusy Eau de Toilette), Ben Cohen is currently finishing up his autobiography, set for a September release. While I’ve never been  big fan of the genre, exceptions must be made, particularly in the case of a Mr. Cohen (see Andy.) He’s got a grand story to tell, both for his accomplishments and tragedies, and I can’t wait to read it. )If he’s wise, he’ll include some behind-the-scenes stories of photo shoots like these. Or just some photos.

Hunk of the Day Redux: Alexander Ludwig

alexander ludwig 101

Thanks to his new photo spread in ‘Flaunt’, Alexander Ludwig gets his second crowning as Hunk of the Day. Mr. Ludwig sets black-and-white on fire in this photo shoot, more than demonstrating his worthiness as one of the elite two-time Hunks now in the running for three. (If you want to see him in living shirtless color, check out his first time around.)

Hunk of the Day: Darius Ferdynand

Darius Ferdynand 101

I don’t know what it requires to be named ‘Britain’s Best Bottom‘ but I’m almost certain I wouldn’t have what it takes. Apparently Darius Ferdynand does, and he is being named the Hunk of the Day. As ‘Britain’s Best Bottom’ he’s got a lot to live up to, but that smile goes a long way toward fitting the billing.

Sexy Men of Summer

sexy collect 101

Actually, these guys are sexy year-round, but since we’re in summer let’s give it a seasonal slant. We begin with the always-entertaining Adam Levine, who recently dropped a towel to show off his naked ass. When Adam Levine gets nude, you sit up and take notice. He’s been here more than once, with the featured photo making waves and tingling hearts and nether-regions for some time.

Mr. Levine has a gay brother and has long been a proponent for gay rights, so it’s doubly nice to show him some love today.

The body of an angel, in this case Ashley Parker Angel, whose Instagram account is one shot away from full-frontal male nudity. Not that anyone has an issue with that. Beautiful people can get away with nudity that the rest of us just can’t get away with.

Straight ally Julian Edelman (who recently changed his FaceBook profile pic to the rainbow filter that is now gleefully ubiquitous) raises himself up, and us in the process.

I believe he’s kicking off a gay pride celebration somewhere, which goes to show you just had far we have come as a country. When a straight football star plays such a prominent role in a gay pride event, things have changed for the better.

A man of beauty, Mr. Mark MacKillop recently performed in this year’s Broadway Bares show, and a few months ago released his scorching coffee-table book Rm. XIV. As the photo below proves, MacKillop knows his way around the camera lens.

Across the pond, Shayne Ward is still setting hearts aflame with poses like this, and the power of his voice. The power of his underwear is pretty apparent here.

Finally, bringing up the booty is sexy beast Matthew Camp, who has been featured here in a number of previous posts, all worthy of admiration and adoration. Mr. Camp exemplifies the fact that being sexy is not only a superficial act, but an internal one as well. His good-natured spirit matches how hot he is, and that’s pretty cool.

Hunk of the Day: Luke Casey ~ One More Time

luke casey 5000

From one hot Casey to another, this is Luke Casey’s second time at bat as Hunk of the Day. Coming rather quickly after his first, it’s mostly due to high demand and the insistence that Mr. Casey be crowned again, and I’m in no position to argue. his attributes remain just as fine as the first time around, so here’s hoping he produces a few more photo shoots to cement his run at number three.

Some Shirtless Zac Efron

zac shirtless 000

To help us get over the hump, here are some shirtless shots of Zac Efron when he went rope-swinging. I guess when you’re hot like that you go rope-swinging. Obviously, I’ve never been, and I’m good with that. (Though it must be noted that I was one of the few in our sixth grade class who could scale the big ropes in phys ed class and get all the way to the top of the gymnasium. Hint: it’s just as much in the legs as it is in the arms.) Speaking of arms, Mr. Efron’s guns are something to behold. Hanging on rope and swinging around like Tarzan certainly agrees with him. It also works wonders for building the back, and the chest, and apparently everything else.

XXX(L)

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.
