(Not much about language.)

Catching up on old episodes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer this morning, I noted that though I’ve posted about two of the hunky male characters (Angel and Spike), I neglected some of the others, most especially the central character Xander (played by Nicholas Brendon) and Buffy’s love interest for several seasons Riley (played by Marc Blucas). I didn’t find really stunning shirtless photos of them separately, but I did come across a manip (on the term, see here) of the two of them in carnal congress, Riley screwing Xander (viewable on AZBlogX, here).


Cyrus – Timberlake

September 1, 2013

It seems to be a Chuck and Beans morning (see here and here). Now an up-to-the-moment strip:


The two stories: Miley Cyrus and twerking (coverage on this blog here), and the casting of the next Batman movie (which will bring us to Justin Timberlake and then to other actors).


BK twink

August 22, 2013

(Not about language.)

Omitted from my last posting on more television hunks. the earlier history of Brian Krause (Leo in Charmed, 1998-2006). In his very early 20s, Krause did Return to the Blue Lagoon (1991), in which he appeared as a cute blondish curly-haired twink (in preposterous demi-costumes).


Television hunks, separately and together

August 22, 2013

Previously on Shirtless Television, David Boreanaz (Angel in Buffy) and James Marsters (Spike), plus Spangel (Spike/Angel) slash imagery. More Spangel images are now on AZBlogX, in “Television notes” (#3, #4, and #5), along with a Leo/Cole image, putting together two characters from the series Charmed, Leo Wyatt (played by Brian Krause) and Cole Turner (played by Julian McMahon). On to a shirtless Krause and to McMahon and his Nip/Tuck co-star Dylan Walsh, shirtless together.

(Only a little bit about language.)

In assembling material about shirtlessness, I came across this arresting photo:


This from a site that has a lot on knitting and men’s bodies, among other things. The poster’s caption:

I have a thing for hairy forearms, calves, and thighs. And a beautiful face. Call me gay if you want.

He is definitely gay. And I share his tastes.


Spike / Marsters

August 20, 2013

(Not about language.)

Earlier today, five tv hunks, including David Boreanaz, the Angel of Buffy and Angel — including allusions to Spangel material, slash writing and imagery that unites Angel and the character Spike sexually or romantically. Now to pick up on Spike and the actor who plays him, James Marsters.


Five television hunks

August 20, 2013

(Not about language, except for a couple portmanteaus towards the end. The last image is not SFW.)

Seeing James Marsden on the cover of the latest Out magazine and coming upon a Bones re-run with David Boreanaz in it led me to various sites that pick “the sexiest men” — on television, in the movies, in the world, whatever. Pure silliness, of course, but it brightened my morning with shirtless shots of these two television actors and three more from the lists: Shemar Moore, Jared Padalecki, and Jensen Ackles.


Zesty Anderson Davis returns

From the Inquisitr site:

Kraft’s Zesty Guy Back Thanks To Million Moms Protest

Kraft’s Zesty Guy raised the hackles of One Million Moms, a group known for its continual harassment of America’s Sweetheart Ellen DeGeneres and fear of ambient bestiality in network commercials. So how did One Million Moms affect Kraft’s Zesty Guy marketing campaign? It seems, if Jezebel is correct, that their anger served only to get us more of the naughty pinup boy.

Some samples from the new campaign will follow below, along with a Kraft scheme for creating Zestygrams for personal use.


Hollywood Sparks

August 15, 2013

In the September Details magazine (pp. 208-13), a feature, “This Mild-Mannered Father of Five Is Single-Handedly Redefining the Male Ideal: The Love Song of Nicholas Sparks” by Jonathan Miles, about the author of romantic fiction, which features legions of

Everyman paragons of romance, fidelity, hunkiness, vulnerability, and soft-focus desirability that, in the books’ Hollywood adaptations, have supplied hot-and-teary leading-man roles for

many actors, among them Ryan Gosling, Channing Tatum, Shane West, Zac Efron, Josh Duhamel, Kevin Costner, and Richard Gere.

On p. 211, a special feature, “When Hollywood Sparks Fly: How playing one of the author’s characters became the ticket to A-list hearthrob status”, on five actors for whom a Sparks-based movie provided a career break-through: Ryan Gosling [The Notebook], Channing Tatum [Dear John], Liam Hemsworth [The Last Song], Zac Efron [The Lucky One], Josh Duhamel [Safe Haven].


Not your grandfather’s Sears catalogue

August 10, 2013

From the Canadian pandas (Leith Chu and Chris Ambidge) on Facebook, an image from the Sears catalogue of a handsome model in a men’s 4-piece adjustable harness (plus a black pouch, sold separately). Readers marveled at the changes in the catalogue — not your grandfather’s Sears any more.

Here’s the image I got from the Canapandas, plus one of the harness worn somewhat differently on another model:



More photos from the Sears collection of kinkwear and fetishwear in a moment. Here I’ll note, with astonishment, that the collection is called Elegant Moments.
