A Little Something to Take Your Mind Off the Election

posted by on November 3 at 15:36 PM

For the gay men and the ladies—and, yes, the guy in this video isn’t going to be hold universal appeal. Not all gay men and all ladies appreciate the same body types, ethnicities, eye colors, hair lenghts, etc., but try to enjoy nevertheless, okay?

I’m right there with him until the legs bit. Via Towleroad’s Guide to the Tube.

Now back to stressing out about the election…

Ick, those legs make me ill. Can people really look like that without steroids?

Posted by Julie in Chicago | November 3, 2008 3:41 PM

Nasty (and not in a good way!). Thanks for the eyewash, #1.

I wonder if this is his idea of a conversation.

I kid! I kid!

What's interesting is the way he's developed those secondary stabilizer muscles. Like that weird circle on the top of his shoulder. The only time I know I have those muscles is when I go bowling once a year and the next day I find myself unable to grab my seatbelt from behind the seat without stabbing pain.

Good lord people, he's young, he works out, he probably keeps his beer intake to one or two a week (dam Perv) and he has a goal in mind, i.e. being lean and muscled.

If it's the soft round look in the male form you dig, there's no shortage of that kind of "eye-candy". I think what's more interesting is what he'll look like at, let's say 50. It's easy to be ripped and muscled at 25.

#7, no its not easy, no matter what age. It takes a lot of dedication, excellent diet, commitment to the gym (weights AND cardio) and lets not forget...hes blessed with excellent genetics and the type of muscle fiber (short) that is right for developing this type of muscle tone. kudos for years of hard work to him.

he would be no fun as a dinner date.

People are beautiful. Why limit yourself to one 'type' and ignore the wonderful range that's out there?

Posted by Greg | November 3, 2008 4:01 PM

I wish he didn't pluck his damn eyebrows. Or stare at himself so intently.

Posted by Dan Savage | November 3, 2008 4:04 PM

Mmmm. Legs.

Posted by Balt-O-Matt | November 3, 2008 4:14 PM

dan likes a guy with chest fuzz?!?!?

it's the end of the world!

Posted by michael strangeways | November 3, 2008 4:15 PM

Ew, Lance Armstrong bracelet. So 2004.

Posted by Ariel | November 3, 2008 4:18 PM

thats the key; this took YEARS to do. I blew my body up in less than 3. But that'll change, mark my words

Posted by Bellevue Ave | November 3, 2008 4:20 PM

Seriously, I can appreciate him as sculpture and I think he's (mostly) aesthetically amazing, but there's zero erotic content for me there. My one point of real contention are those arms! I didn't even know it was possible to be grossed out by biceps.

Posted by whatevernevermind | November 3, 2008 4:22 PM

wake me up when he shows his cock.

Also, 11 FTW.

Posted by Mike in MO | November 3, 2008 4:32 PM

I can appreciate his effort in keeping in awesome shape but, in my experience, guys like that tend to be astonishingly boring in bed, expect you to do all the work, and smell bad. I'll take a cute nerdish-looking guy over him any day: all sweet and adorable on the outside and frekishly kinky in bed ; )

Posted by BarkMore | November 3, 2008 4:43 PM

he looks like a typical homosexual for the first 2 seconds, before he starts posing. where do people learn how to do that? and why, WHY? i don't need to know what your body looks like without skin.

Posted by brandon | November 3, 2008 4:49 PM

okay dan, help a gal out. some of y'all are going to be self-medicating while the election returns come in, my preferred method of same is going into a diabetic coma. so loads of choco-crack cookies are on the way.

here's the thing. i've never had much luck with the hippie non-hydrogenated shortening in other things. and i only have one bag of chocolate chips. should i blow them on the hippie shortening and hope for the best, or just borrow some damn crisco from next door? if they turn out bad, i'm going to have nothing to distract me from another 30+ hours of misery here.

you're the cookie king (queen?), dan. help!!

Posted by happyhedonist | November 3, 2008 4:49 PM

@19 - Yep. Too, too true.

Posted by merry | November 3, 2008 4:49 PM

@21--DON'T use Crisco. Ew. Use butter instead. Who uses Crisco in cookies? Butter's where it's at.

Posted by Balt-O-Matt | November 3, 2008 4:56 PM

crisco is perfect for peanut butter cookies balt-o-matt

Posted by Bellevue Ave | November 3, 2008 5:05 PM

That guy's body is amazing-aesthetically speaking-but I'm with Dan all the way on this one...I was there until the leg appearance. I literally flinched when they came out on cam! oh, and he does have a very intense stare for himself the entire time...he's very focused obviously. Hahaha!

Posted by Liberal in Redneck Country | November 3, 2008 5:14 PM

This man has no issues with ego, does he? Such garishly over-developed people look like they might pop a vein and leak Stretch Armstrong/Hulk style green goo if they came in contact with a sharp object, like the corner of a table.

Posted by E | November 3, 2008 5:18 PM

Ahem. Don't you mean gay guys and straight ladies, Dan?

I know we're under a lot of election-related stress and all but that doesn't mean that dykes suddenly cease to exist. ;)

So, yeah, ewwww.

Posted by heddache | November 3, 2008 5:22 PM

after all - I think he need not say a word - he would be a great ass suck

course I know sucking ass is too perv for most, sure

Posted by Zak | November 3, 2008 5:22 PM

@24--I don't use the stuff. I use lard instead. My peanut butter cookies use oil and butter. Huh.

Posted by Balt-O-Matt | November 3, 2008 5:43 PM

well yes, butter is best for most things. but in chocolate chip cookies, using only butter, they turn out all flat and unappealing. sometimes they boil around the edges. gack. i don't want greasy, flat crunchy cookies. i want soft, tall fat ones stuffed with chocolate chip crack.

maybe it's the oven? it's one of those convection type ones, it circulates the heat much better and the bottoms don't burn, though, unlike the old oven. but who knows?

Posted by happyhedonist | November 3, 2008 5:50 PM

I'm with you, @27. And ewww.

Posted by Lola, Now in Iowa | November 3, 2008 6:28 PM

Sorry about that, 27.

Posted by Dan Savage | November 3, 2008 7:27 PM

A post about sucking someone's ass, followed by two about the best way to make a cookie. I just fell in love with this place all over again.

Posted by Ryan | November 3, 2008 7:36 PM

I am at least happy that he left his little snail trail which means (most likely) that he is correctly hirsute in the nether regions at least.

Posted by Malcolm In Sydney | November 3, 2008 8:34 PM


i suppose i could be called out for going off-topic, but wasn't the theme/title of this post something about 'taking mind off the elections'? and dan has given out cookie-baking advice in the past, he often discusses how he spent a closeted adolescence refining his baking skills. i just thought he might know.

i also wasn't totally clear; i typically use half butter and half shortening in peanut butter and chocolate chip cookies - that's how ol' betty did it, and betty was the shit, the cookie-baking shit, when i was a kid. i've gone all butter at times, but i got poor results. the hydrogenated fat is bugging me though, and i'm looking for a way around it.

somehow, this greasy dude reminded me of shortening and how it's no good.

Posted by happyhedonist | November 3, 2008 9:20 PM

I'm wondering why no one mentioned that this guy had to take buckets of drugs to look like that. Legs don't just magically get that way because of "good genes"....the dude's hairline is already receding...and he's only 22.

Posted by adam | November 3, 2008 9:52 PM

Charles could have posted a better guy than that! FEK!

Posted by -B- | November 3, 2008 10:04 PM

Yucky yuck! his head/neck doesn't match his body, and those tiny knees compared to his thighs..eww I could almost get into his body but it just looks so wrong with that pin head. No doubt he is juicing, way too much by the looks of it.

He looks like a robo-jock, a robo-jock that need to just whip it out already. All that preen'in don't mean a thing with out see'in da peen!!!

oh yeah, it all shriveled because of the 'roids.

and I second #33

Posted by cici | November 4, 2008 2:00 AM

I tried very hard to keep an open mind up until the legs part and I must admit-- I gagged.

Posted by jul | November 4, 2008 5:57 AM

Geez, I bet he is NOT juicing. Do none of you work out? Your body is amazing and you can gain (depending on genetics) about 30lbs in 3 months of bulking up and then retain about 14lbs of lean muscle in the next 3 months of sliming down so in about a year you can gain around 30lbs of muscle. Thats a LOT on a small frame... so do the math, 3yrs of this is almost a 100 lbs! All this does is go back to the fact of how committed this guy was/is. We are talking about an insane diet and work out schedule here that most people (with jobs and lives) are unable to keep up with. And the legs? They match the body. Most men do not work out legs (especially straight guys) and then that looks funny and out of proportions, so again... kudos to him for the extra effort.

Posted by Peter | November 4, 2008 9:31 AM

You have your head up your ass. Maybe you do work out, but I guarantee that you or anyone else does not look like this guy due to chicken breasts and vitamins. I have spent the last 16 years in weightrooms, I know what steroid use looks like. 30 lbs of lean muscle in a year for a normal sized man who is done growing is laughable. Even bodybuilders who are openly juicing would be envious of that. Secondly, to get legs like that he not only is taking an anabolic agent, but also a cutting agent, my guess would be clenbuterol. Add in the human growth hormone and pot he needs to smoke (to keep his appetite up for the 5,000 calories a day he needs to take in, and also to take the 'roid edge off) and this dude is spending thousands of dollars a year on drugs to look like this. In any sport where athletes, even full time elite ones, are consistently drug tested, be it the NFL, marathon and triathlete runners, or olympic weightlifters, no one has legs like that. Your post indicates your ignorance. Right now there are untold numbers of young men who think they need to look like this and are ruining their bodies and bank accounts accordingly....and then idiots like you come by and call it "hard work in the gym".
