Even More Ryan Lochte (And That Bulge)

ryan lochte 16000

What more can be said about Ryan Lochte that hasn’t been said (and linked) in this post from yesterday? Not much, but here are a few more photos of Mr. Lochte and his world-renowned Speedo bulge. If you’re looking for in-depth Olympic analysis, look elsewhere. This is for ogling and objectification. And you know you love it.

A Grandly Gratuitous Ryan Lochte Relay

lochte 001

Ryan Lochte has been one of those charismatic, charming, and goofy Hunks who is always good for a ridiculous sound-bite or swaggering Speedo pose, but let’s not forget that he’s also a champion Olympian, where he’s played an integral role in gaining the US several relay medals. More important to those of you who come here for the guy candy, he has no problem preening and posing in all sorts of body-baring swim attire. He’s been named a Hunk of the Day, and his Speedo has graced these pages time and time again. Here’s one more.

Olympic Spotlight: Men’s Gymnastics

mens gymnasts 101

Here are arguably the best bodies in the Rio Olympics: built, intense, muscle-bound vehicles designed to defy gravity and perform miraculous physical feats that the rest of us mere mortals can only marvel at. This is the US Men’s Gymnastics team, competing for the gold. Like this dynamic duo, these gymnasts have each been a Hunk of the Day solo-style, but this is a special group scene for this week’s festivities… I mean, competition.

If you want to see their solo shows, check out their featured Hunk posts:

Nick Jonas: Wet Underwear

nick jonas wet under 102

Give it up to sibling rivalry: this is how Nick Jonas tops his brother Joe, and it comes just a week or so after Joe declared that he had the biggest penis of all the Jonas Brothers. I think it’s a steamy slap-back, mostly because it showcases Nick’s finely-honed ass in wet Calvin Klein boxer briefs. And considering the sub-zero nonsense in which they were frolicking, the shrinkage is more than understandable. Leave it to Bear Grylls to get another Hunk into his shorts. (See Zac Efron.) Bonus points for the ripped underwear too.

Joe Jonas, Shirtless

This is the response of Joe Jonas to all the hotness that his brother Nick has stolen the past couple of years. A naked Nick Jonas is certainly a sight to behold, but the best revenge is being hot, and Joe proves that right here. When you look back at the Hunk of the Day post for Joe Jonas, and the Nick Jonas Hunk of the Day feature, it’s hard to tell who’s going to be showcased next. (Hint: whoever doffs their shirt again.)

Suck on This Man-Candy

2 tyson strip

It’s summer.

It’s hot.

And this post is only going to make you hotter.

Man-candy. It’s what this website does best. Open up and say Ahh, because he’s another bit of super-hard sweetness to melt in your mouth. We’ve had some major man-candy here in the past, so here’s a look back at some of the favorites. Sticky and sweet, indeed.

Let’s begin with Tyson Beckford, who seems to getting more and more cheeky as his modeling career progresses. One of the OG male super models, he’s still defining what it means to be handsome and beautiful and stunning all at once.

Another classic, Ben Cohen, belongs in the man-candy hall of fame. He’s been missing-in-action these last few months, so let’s rectify that a bit right now.

The majority of man-candy here come in the form of male models, such as Filip Sjunnesson, Rick Fisher, and Americo Neto.

Some man-candy is appropriately named, like Rocco Hard.

Some man-candy can barely be contained in a single post.

And some cannot.

Man-candy might be red-hot.

Or Olympic gold.

But mostly you like it when it’s basic nude.

Hunk of the Day: Seth Rollins

Professional wrestler Seth Rollins (a.k.a. Colby Daniel Lopez) struts his pumped pectitude for the WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment) and earns his first Hunk of the Day honor here. Mr. Rollins has the greased-up body and wavy long hair that recall the 80′s glory of Wrestlemania and the first flutterings of a gay boy’s heart.

Body Issue = Naked Issue

Conor McGregor 0001

Here at, we love ESPN for one thing and one thing only: the Body Issue of their magazine. Artistically (and gratuitously) displaying athletes in naked poses, it’s probably the biggest issue of their year, and has enough cachet to have gotten the likes of Michael Phelps and Rob Gronkowski totally starkers. In this post, we see some shots of Hunk of the Day Conor McGregor in his altogether – further evidence of the power of the Body. He joins the nude ranks of Evan Lysacek, Giancarlo StantonMatt Harvey, Oguchi Onyewu, Tomáš Berdych, Greg LouganisBryce Harper, and Kevin Love. Welcome to the Celebrity Skin Jungle.

Mighty Olympic Hunks

Michael Phelps shirtless

It may seem strange to recap the parade of Olympic hunks we’ve been cataloguing here before the 2016 Olympic Games even begin, but that’s how far of ahead of myself I sometimes get. It’s doubtful anyone will mind that much – as the Speedo show has always been greeted with frenzied appreciation. Here we look back at some photos of the Olympians who have doffed shirts and trousers in the name of their sexy sport.

First up is one of the greatest the sport of swimming has ever known: Michael Phelps. He’s been naked here before, but not yet a Hunk of the Day (How?! Why?!) This August he heads to Rio to see if more record-breaking gold awaits his fins.

Second is another Hunk of the pool: Ryan Lochte. A little flashier, a little funnier, and a whole lot more interesting on the superficial level, Mr. Lochte provides a little sass and sauciness to the solemn occasion of the Olympics.

Relative newcomer Steele Johnson has the name of a porn star, and the talent and body of an Olympic diver. Grace and strength, precision and agility – he personifies the best elements of a champion competitor. More of him to come, I’m sure.

Chris Mears may give him a run for his money-maker, however, especially if judging from his Instagram feed. And his naked butt. And the shirtless shot below.

Adam Lambert: The Sexy & Shirtless Show

Adam Lambert gets all shirtless and sexy, while simultaneously a little deep, in his new video and song, ‘Welcome to the Show.’ I can dig it, and would expect nothing less from this two-time Hunk of the Day.

Patriotic Hunk of the Day: John Cena

john cena 100

It took some researching and searching through the archives here (you can do the same in those elusive search engine boxes way at the bottom of this site) but it turns out the John Cena has never been a Hunk of the Day – until now. How such an oversight occurred is beyond me, as Mr. Cena has proven himself remarkably adept at confounding expectations, particularly with his comedic abilities on flagrant display in hits like ‘Trainwreck’ in which he sends up his image and turns it on its head. Forget all of that though – when wrestling is where you entered the pop culture lexicon, you better have a banging body to back it up – and Mr. Cena does. There is no better front to that flag.

Hunk of the Day: Max Ehrich

Max Ehrich

Summer was the time when I got caught up with my soap operas. I was an NBC boy back then – ‘Days of Our Lives,’ ‘Another World.’ and ‘Santa Barbara.’ For a brief moment there was ‘Generations.’ As I got older, I almost migrated to CBS, where ‘The Young and the Restless‘ kept company with ‘The Bold and the Beautiful.’ It is on Y&R that our Hunk of the Day is making a splash. Max Ehrich made perhaps his most prominent mark there, but he’s also appeared in my beloved ‘Ugly Betty’ for their third season, as well as ‘Under the Dome.’ Now he’s been named a Hunk of the Day, and nothing will ever be the same.

Tom Hiddleston and Underwear Bulge

tom hiddleston bulge 1

Who knew under all of Loki’s armor and long locks lurked such a hot body? Apparently Taylor Swift got the scoop, as she was reportedly canoodling with him on some beach somewhere, because when you’re Taylor Swift that’s how you work I guess. (Bye bye, Calvin Harris – you were but a blip on the underwear-model radar…) As for the man who played Loki, this is Tom Hiddleston – not quite ready for his Hunk of the Day moment until we see if there’s something more here. For now, this is a promising beginning.

Hunk of the Day: Zachary Gordin

Zachary Gordin 099

The costumes are usually spectacular, the staging is often splendid, and the talent is unsurpassed, but I’m still not the biggest fan of opera. That said, I might be swayed should the Hunk of the Day honoree Zachary Gordin be part of the production. His rich voice is about the only thing that surpasses his practically-perfect body, sculpted into opera jock form. But don’t take my mumblings for anything, read through the long list of accomplishments as furnished on his website:

Zachary Gordin is renowned for bringing masterful singing and strong physicality to a wide variety of roles: from baroque heroes, to contemporary works written specifically for him. For his performance of Schumann’s Dichterliebe at the Olympic Music Festival, the Seattle Times hailed him as “a singer already capable of some arresting musical insights. The occasional big effects were commanding and intense without ever descending into coarseness, and the delicacy and tonal allure he brought to the cycle’s preponderance of quiet songs were deeply impressive.” Recent operatic performances include Joseph De Rocher – the convict – in Jake Heggie’s Dead Man Walking with Dayton Opera, Don Alfonso in Cosi fan tutte as a guest artist with the UC Berkeley Symphony Orchestra and Chorus, Count Almaviva in Le nozze di Figaro with Visalia Opera Company, Escamillo in Carmen with Diablo Symphony Orchestra and San Francisco Lyric Opera, Silvio in Pagliacci and Monterone in Rigoletto with Sacramento Opera, Aeneas in Dido and Aeneas and El Cantaor in La vida breve with West Bay Opera, Germont in La Traviata with West Bay Opera and Center Stage Opera, Enrico in Lucia di Lammermoor with North Bay Opera and Center Stage Opera, and many others.

Equally at home as a soloist on the concert stage, Gordin has performed Monteverdi’s Magnificat with Michael Tilson Thomas and the San Francisco Symphony, Mahler’s Kindertotenlieder with the Bay Area Rainbow Symphony, Brahms’ Requiem and Vaughan Williams’ Dona Nobis Pacem with the Oakland Symphony Chorus, Duruflé’s Requiem with the Valley Concert Chorale, Mendelssohn’s Magnificat with the Dominican Winifred Baker Chorale, Schubert’s Mass in E-flat and Psalm 92with the San Francisco Choral Society, Bach’s Cantata #82 “Ich habe genug” and Mozart’s Coronation Masswith the Sacramento Philharmonic Orchestra, Mozart’s Requiem with the Berkeley Community Chorus and Orchestra, Mendelssohn’s Die erste Walpurgisnacht, Duruflé’s Requiem, and Schubert’s Mass in G with San Francisco City Chorus, Tippett’s A Child of Our Time with the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus and Women Sing, and Pergolesi’s Stabat Mater with the Center Stage Opera Orchestra. Upcoming performances include:  Joseph De Rocher in Dead Man Walking with Shreveport Opera.

Gordin has been in high demand as a guest artist with the Oakland East Bay Symphony, where has sung Handel’s Messiah, Fauré’s Requiem, Verdi’s Otello, Kurt Weill’s Street Scene, “A Night at the Opera”, as well as Orff’s Carmina Burana, for which Maestro Michael Morgan writes “Zachary Gordin is the ideal baritone for Carmina Burana. In addition to having a very full, powerful baritone, this is the best singing of the high, sensual music that I have ever heard. This is as good a rendering of those solos as one is ever likely to encounter.” As Carmina Burana has become a signature piece, over the past few seasons he has reprised this demanding role in performances with the YOSA Philharmonic and San Antonio Choral Society, Pacific Shores Philharmonic, Bakersfield Symphony Orchestra, the Santa Clara Chorale, the Choral Project, the UC Berkeley Choruses, and others. Recent premieres of works written for him have included “Constant Fever” by Sheli Nan, The Myth of Kurva by Loretta Notareschi, and “A Nation Announcing Itself” by Clint Borzoni for the Sacramento Pride Gala “Courage to Stand”.

Gordin’s talent has been recognized as a winner of prestigious vocal competitions, including: the Pacific Musical Society Competition, East Bay Opera League Vocal Competition, Bellini International Voice Competition, and the Ibla Grand Prize Baroque Music Competition. He was the recipient of the Irene Patti Swartz Encouragement Award for the Florida Grand Opera National Voice Competition, and Grantee of the Vocal Arts Foundation in San Francisco.  He was also World Finalist for the Academia at Teatro alla Scala, Regional Finalist for the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions, and the youngest candidate selected for the ORFEO 2000 World Competition of International Finalists hosted by Hannover Staatsoper. In addition to his performance calendar, Gordin maintains an active schedule training singers, and presenting workshops and master classes for opera companies and universities throughout the US.

Hunk of the Day: Jake Shears, Shorn Again

jake shears nude 001

Certain Hunks are so multi-faceted and sumptuously-gifted that one post as Hunk of the Day is not enough. Jake Shears is one of those illustrious gentleman, whose talent and skills are matched only by a body borne from hard work and dedication. His work as singer and song-writer has gone rather underappreciated – every single Scissor Sisters album has been genius – but those of us who know and adore him don’t mind that the collective masses have not yet caught on. More for the refined of us. His first Hunk of the Day feature showcased him a few years ago – this one shows you how far he has come.

Though it was released a few years ago, I’m newly-infatuated with their latest (last?) ‘Magic Hour’ album. ‘Inevitable’ is the theme for summer…
