How do you like your buns….completely smooth, or with a little fur?
For many, many years one of my favorite Holiday Season traditions was to buy myself a Hunk calendar for the New Year. I can still remember the first one I purchased at a Spencer’s Gift store at the local mall. General public’s attitude toward homosexuality was frequently hostile when I was in my youth….and I vividly remember the young female cashier asking “This isn’t for YOU, is it??”. I was so embarrassed and angry at the same time. Then into a nearly transparent plastic bag went my new purchase….and I had the nearly impossible task of trying to hide it under my arms as I escaped the mall with my titillating purchase. After that harrowing first experience….I learned to do my calendar shopping at the nearest gay bookstore!
Fortunately times have changed, and the variety of calendars from which to choose is nothing short of amazing. In the early days it was Chippendale’s calendars that targeted a heterosexual female market. Colt Studios was one of the earliest calendars I can remember that was specifically for us (I still have a stack of Steve Kelso and Cal Hardwick calendars in my closet). Then the larger gay porn studios got into the act.
Now some of the most interesting calendars are from groups who are showing skin to raise money for a cause. The first one of this genre that I can remember is the FDNY Calendars. Here is one from the Royal Marines.
Now that Thanksgiving is over…..I’m sure many of you are already searching for that perfect gift to put under the tree for your partner, boyfriend, or bestie. For the gay man who already has everything, why not a new photography book with beautiful men. If most of the pics are as beautiful as these samples, I think I might have to ask Santa to drop off one of these books for me.
I regret not having had time to post anything lately! This has been such a crazy year for me personally. I’d have so say I’ve experienced more change in the last 6 months than in the prior 3 or 4 years. I kinda miss some of the free time I used to have. I’m definitely working harder and longer than ever before, but I’m also getting better at enjoying what free time I still have. A lot of time I used to spend Blogging was to fend off boredom….which really isn’t a problem anymore.
I do still enjoy looking at beautiful men, and here are a few footballers who are definitely worthy of reposting.
This one has the most incredible smile and eyes. I could just get lost in them!
I think men look so sexy in the shower. Wouldn’t you live to be a drop of water running down this incredible torso?
This is my 3rd favorite pic from the post. Very nicely proportioned
One of my most commonly used blog titles here is “Furry Critters Du Jour”, in which I feature a hairy hunk who has caught my attention….. but I think a new recurring title is in order for those exemplary smooth men who have the muscle and/or machismo worthy of admiration despite their lack of fur. To that end I give you my inaugural “Smoothie Flavor of the Day”, Serge Henir:
How I found Serge was ironically due to checking out another blog that had featured one of my “Furry Critters Du Jour”….. isn’t that something!
