Keeping It [In] Brief[s]

briefs 1000

There has been a resurgence in briefs in the drawers of men, and it’s time to celebrate with a gratuitous post like this in which we revisit some of the more notable brief encounters we’ve had over the years, starting with an expert in fuzzy balls, Novak Djokovic. He keeps it simple in basic black – a wise and classic choice, on or off the court.

Mario Lopez kept it real in this pair of skimpy Christmas briefs, as he trimmed the tree and presented his presents.

Zac Efron gives tighty whities a bad name in this set of questionable briefs. One would have thought he’d fill them out better than that. Then again, one would prefer Zac Efron completely naked.

Faring far sexier in his briefs is Nick Youngquest, who knows how to pack a punch, and a package.

Sometimes a simple pair of white briefs is all you need for runway glory, at least according to Noah Mills and this ridiculously sexy walk.

Josh Wald may be wearing the skimpiest pair of briefs ever made here (one that perhaps passes into string bikini territory.)

Busting out of his Calvin Klein briefs is Ngo Okafor, whose chest more than matches what comes below.

Two words: wet briefs. Two more words: Sandor Earl. One last word: semi.

I can’t decide if Christian Sancho looks better in or out of his briefs.

Jack Mackenroth makes all sorts of underwear look great in all sorts of ways.

As bodacious as these brief-barers are, they still don’t quite match the excitement of a jockstrap - but that’s another post for another time.

Hunk of the Day: Renaissance Man Daniel Robinson

daniel robinson 1

Too many people claim the term ‘Reniassance man’ for their own when they don’t always deserve it (guilty, guilty, guilty.) Daniel Robinson is the real deal, and he can now add ‘Hunk of the Day’ to his long list of varied accomplishments. Mr. Robinson is an actor, singer, dancer, director, choreographer, photographer, cinematographer, video editor, graphic designer and web designer. I got winded just typing that out, so I can’t imagine how he does it all, on and beyond Broadway.

This year he is once again part of the Broadway Bares event (he is currently working on a documentary of the event) and if you want to donate to this worthy cause, check out his fundraising page, and one very saucy photo.

Jamie Dornan’s Naked Butt, Kinda Sorta

jamie dornan nude 0

Here’s something to get your Hump Day going. While he’s been much more naked in his Hunk of the Day feature, Jamie Dornan offers a side peek of butt in one of these photos from a new Interview spread. I don’t know if these are part of a new promo push for ’50 Shades of Gray’ since I have not paid the least bit of attention to that, but if they are, I’d suggest less moodiness and far less clothing. (Really, who takes a bath in their underwear?) Sex sells. As does gratuitous male nudity.

Miscellaneous Men, With & Without Underwear


When in doubt, smut it up. That’s the axiom of this site, and it will be for some time. In this instance, a spattering of former Hunks of the Day (and maybe one not-yet-christened guy) along with several photos of theirs that didn’t make the initial cut. The first cut may be the deepest, but these follow-ups are nothing short of fantastic.

First we have Dan Osborne, up top, who has been here many times. Count with me – one, two, three, four, five… Check the archives for the rest.

Chris Evans can always be counted on for some sexy shirtlessness, though he’s been rather stingy with it of late. Here’s hoping he returns to all his glory in the near future.

Edilson Nascimento has yet to be featured as a Hunk of the Day, but his time will come.

Austin Armacost usually likes to feature his butt, but this time it’s what’s up front that’s drawing all the focus, while Greg Rutherford amps it up for the gingers (even if you can’t tell in black-and-white.)

Another “A-Lister” – Rodiney Santiago – gives a peek of his derriere.

Finally, we have Russell Tovey, an across-the-pond hottie who has been here before.

Hunk of the Day: Mario Falcone

mario falcone 1

British reality-television star Mario Falcone is the Hunk of the Day, or, at this late moment, the hunk of the Evening as it were. Mr. Falcone was on the series ‘The Only Way is Essex’ where he displayed his ink in a Borat-like onesie. I’m not posting those photos, but here are some better ones. Further proof that they build them better overseas.

All American Guy Tyson Beckford

Mr. Beckford has already been a Hunk of the Day here, but there’s always room for a few extra pics, especially on this patriotic holiday. A little hint of his nether region only serves to add to the festivities. How low can he go?

The Almost-Definitive* David Beckham Shirtless Post

david beckham shirtless 001

As is the case with Ben Cohen, putting a ‘definitive’ label on anything to do with David Beckham is as limiting as a Madonna Greatest Hits album: there’s always more to come. Mr. Beckham actually paved the gay-friendly way for Mr. Cohen, presenting himself as a straight ally more through his flaunting of a metrosexual style, pin-up caliber poses, and calendar and photo shoots that were aimed strategically at the groins of most gay men. He scored, we swooned; he disrobed, we gasped; he started an underwear line, we ate it up. Since the start of this website, David Beckham has been a constant source of eye candy and inspiration.

Here is an almost-comprehensive list of Mr. Beckham’s past posts. There are a lot, but I haven’t heard anyone complain about their prolific nature given the specimen on display.

It all began (at least post-website-revamp) with his Butt and his Bulge.

A decent way to start, things soon got interesting, if questionably exciting.

The evolution of Beckham’s package.

Forget Justin Trousersnake, Beckham’s got the real deal.

The basic boxer brief showed off Beckham’s best assets.

Bodywear by Beckham.

Oddly enough, he didn’t receive his first Hunk of the Day crowning until 2012.

Nobody does a promotional video better.

Always a top contender for a Greatest Hunks collection

And a mainstay for the decade of this website.

The battle of the century: Ben Cohen vs. David Beckham. Who’s sexier?

The 2nd battle of the century: David Beckham vs. Mario Lopez.

David & Daley.

The best David Beckham posts are those that are purely gratuitous.

Ever wonder what he smells like?

Forget the subway tile, it’s the underwear.

That age-old dilemma: bulge or butt?

The pre-cursor to this post, in brief.

David Beckham and a tease of nudity

More nudity, and less.

Beckham and his budgie smugglers.

The Definitive* Sexy Ben Cohen Post

ben cohen 099

* Definitive until Mr. Cohen deigns to take his shirt off and drop trousers again, which will hopefully be soon…*

Ben Cohen has proved fine fodder for the sort of sexy posts that populate this wayward blog, and if I’ve pushed him more than, say, David Beckham (whose turn will come tomorrow) it’s because Mr. Cohen is also a staunch straight ally, standing up for gay men and women the world over, and standing behind his anti-bullying efforts with hard work and dedication. His hirsute bearish looks certainly don’t hurt his cause, and that’s a good part of why he’s featured here as well.

Here are a few links wherein we featured the looks, and half-dressed sexiness, of Ben Cohen:

This may have been Ben’s first appearance here – way back in 2010.

It is said that he has an enormous hose.

He seems to enjoy boxer briefs.

And regular briefs, in blue.

He likes to strip to his underwear for video too.

It’s the hair, isn’t it?

Actually, it’s probably his butt.

Is he sexier than David Beckham?

He just may be.

Especially if he goes full-frontal first.

But shirtless Ben is more than just fine.

Especially when getting ready to dance.

The best part of Ben, however, may be his Attitude.

And the fact that he’d give you the shirt off his back.

Nah – it’s the way he fills out these white briefs.

With these gargantuan balls.

David Beckham returns the sexy volley tomorrow…

Hunk of the Day: Joey McIntyre

joey mcintyre 1

This Hunk of the Day goes out to my pal Gina, who has loved Joey McIntyre for as long, and as much, as I have loved Madonna. While never a big fan of the New Kids on the Block (oddly enough) I’m of the generation that considered this the greatest boy band in the world – and a few still do. Considering they’re still selling concert tickets, who am I to argue? (Bonus: the boy band meta-mash-up video at the end of the post. In a way, it’s mind-blowing.)

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.
