I handed my boy Simon Baker his own post as my #1, but I'll also nominate Hugh Jackman, Clive Owen,and Ryan Kwanten (from True Blood). And I doubt he'll get any traction here, but my reptilian brain insists I nominate Rusty Joiner. And let's face it, the reptile in my brain is generally in charge of choosing the sex partners.
I really dislike his expression on this one, but love the relaxed shot of his bod:
Hugh's got everything I look for: piercing eyes, gushing smile, energy, vitality, confidence and a beefy body that he carries with conviction. Ahhhhhhhh. Hahaha.
To be totally honest, if I had to choose between Hugh and Simon Baker for one night--I'd quietly say a little prayer of gratitude first--and then probably grab Hugh. Sorry, Simon. Hugh's got it going above and below the neck.
But if I had to pick one to marry, and keep me turned on forever, I'd grab Simon, in a heartbeat. He makes my heart sing, and the melody never wavers.
Those two are in a dead heat for the title for me.Runners up:
I have been taken aback by him for years, but did not realize quite how much he captivated me until Children of Men. I could not take my eyes off him. With Clive, it's all about the intensity for me.
Then there is recent throbber Ryan Kwanten, who appears to have had sex in every episode of True Blood so far but one. Good casting selection. He appears pretty good at it. He makes me want to participate. Hahaha.
(The first montage I found online. The pix are a few years old, and I prefer him a bit older, but it was easy to provide several angles this way):
I love this suprised pic of him, and I think it's current, and from True Blood. It's perfect for his character, who's not all that bright:
A great butt is also appreciated. Ryan's is spectacular.
And here you go reptiles. Rusty Joiner:. Mmmmmm:
The abs alone make me want to jump this guy.
It took me years to figure out why a six pack is such a turn-on. It echoes the pecs. Pecs are my favorite below-the-neck body part, my eyes are drawn there directly. A great pair of those are great, all by themselves--better with a dusting or more of hair on them--but followed by a merely-flat stomach, they're alone in the wilderness.
When you add on a six- or eight-pack, it's like smaller versions of them continuing on downward for a foot and a half--echoing the pattern, like great architecture: not the same thing, but visual equivalents of the same idea.
Or picture an Ansel Adams photograph of two stunning mountain peaks. Now picture the frame pulled back with a series of foothills leading up to or surrounding the main attraction, with a lot more texture to the foothills, with rivets carved out between them and a deep crevice running imperfectly down the core, lifting gently from side to side like a babbling stream. (Again, perfected by a light thicket of undergrowth concentrated in the lowlands, and thickening futher from the mountains, radiating out of a new and vastly different focal point down below at the navel.)
It's not a perfect analogy, because in landscape, the drama of mountains rising out of nowhere can be powerful, too. But you get the idea of how framing the the focal point and redeveloping it visualy can add to the effect.
A torso is a different landscape, with the limiting condition that there will be an abdominal section in the picture. The question is whether they will accentuate the pecs or leave them on their own.
Of course abs are beautiful in their own right, too, rippling so beatuitfully, but I think it's the combination of them with the pecs that heightens the visual aesthetic of both considerably.
Not that I've thought about this or anything. Hahaha.
You can see a lot more of him at rustyjoiner.com (If that's not enough. Hahaha. Actually, you'll see the same parts of him there a lot more times.)
And since he's special, here's a few more of my contender--Relaxed Hugh, and Adorable Dad Hugh:
I'm seeing a lot of different ideas on what constitutes "sexy," so I'm going to come back with a post dedicated to discussing that. I'll add the link once I do.
BTW, is it illegal for me to be a gayguy and not mention Jake Gyllenhaal?
He's pretty damn hot. I figured he'd be covered. So far, no. Hmmmmmm.
Many comments in, I'm afraid I ghettoized my fave Simon Baker in his own post. So here's a quickie shot of him:
Click for more pix and my case for him.
Reader's Choice Section:
I've decided to add more nominees, from the comments. (But only the ones I find hot. Hey, it's still my blog.) Thanks guys.
First up, Ryan Reynolds, thanks to JT.
Ryan Reynolds. I always thought of him as a lame, talentless twink. Then one day I saw a beefy still from (Amityville?) and gasped. When did HE grow up? And into that? God, even his face got three times as handsome.
He was stunning. But I figured now he was just lame, talentless beefcake. I don't actually know though, because he's never made a movie I was remotely interested in seeing. (Good call on the bad choice of movies, GT.)
Maybe. It's also hard for me to judge sexiness without having seen him move or hear him speak. But man, those pix. Especially the WET and BEST selections. Yow.
Let me tempt you with a few:
Aside from being stunning, those are mabye the best seratus muscles I've ever seen. (If I hadn't been to PT I wouldn't even know what they were. But I had noticed them. I thought they were just ribs. No. Muscle.)
And what's with the softcore bondage thing going on here?
I'm not normally into the bondage thing, but that's hot.
I think he deserves a cheerful one, too, and an angry:
Ok, who else? (I don't want to put David Beckham, OK?)
