With summer well and truly bedded in, lets take a look at what the guys are posting on Instagram and see if we can spot a decent bulge or two.
Aronik swimwear models are the perfect beach body inspiration.
There's still a wider variety of cocks than cock rings, but crafty cock ring manufacturers are catching up! And they're experimenting with various shapes and functions (like the combo cock sheath cock ring).
Cock rings (and whatever you call all those other shapes) are also available in a wide array of materials, including silicone, leather, pleather, rubber, metal, and, of course, kryptonite. Okay maybe not kryptonite. I mean who would want that? Superman is already hard as steel whenever he wants plus the kryptonite would kill him. Oh wait, Lex Luthor would wear a kryptonite cock ring! So he could keep Superman at bay and masturbate in peace while hatching evil plans to take over Earth (you know, exactly like we all do when we masturbate).
The basic function is to keep the blood flow in the dick (or in the head in the case of a head ring). And ball straps can keep a nice wrapping pressure there too, intensifying ejaculation. You don't have to go chokingly tight for it to feel good. In fact numbness is not really a good thing for any part of your body. Think how you wrap your own hand around the base of your cock or stretch your own balls out. You like to vary the pressure. So as with any accessory, fit is key.
All of these are about function and some are also about form. If you're playing solo, the overall look may be less important than how it feels. While if you're showing off at a naked pool party or in the Costco men's room, you'll want something that really screams style, as in "Suck my big stylish dick now!"
You know what also can make a good cock ring? Rope!
Hey, look up from your crossword puzzle, it's a naked or near-naked guy headed somewhere on public transportation. In fact, since you're sitting near him, you're going the same direction, maybe even the same place. Make sure to check if he's wearing some kind of footwear. Naked but footwear equals maybe sane and feel free to give the guy your business card (or tape it to him). But naked with no footwear equals straight up fucking nuts. Keep doing that puzzle.
If there had been a full-on gay porn industry in 1951, surely some enterprising person would've named a flick Naked Strangers on a Train, after Hitchcock's Strangers on Train (itself full of gay undertones). Sticking with the most popular titles of 1951, we also could have been treated to these obscene flicks (in a plain brown wrapper):
- Ace in the Hole becomes In Ace's Hole
- A Streetcar Named Desire becomes A Streaker Named Dennis
- The African Queen becomes The African-American Queen
- Flying Leathernecks becomes Crying Leathermen
- M becomes Mmmmmm and
- Captain Horatio Hornblower becomes Captain Horatio Hornblower
Alas, there was no value in Athletic Model Guild and other vintage beefcake producers to play off pop culture in the same ways as now. Though I just bet the first naked guy in a train happened within minutes of the first train in the world. There just weren't cameras at the time, but technically exhibitionism doesn't need a camera. Remember that the next time you're taking off your clothes in public.
We've gone off about David Beckham before. But with each photo shoot, the retired soccer stud just seems to get better and better. In his latest campaign for H&M, the 39-year-old Brit (and daddy of four with wife Victoria) poses as provocatively as ever. The pics here showcase Becks and his autumn/winter 2014 Bodywear collection, which includes undies, loungewear and his signature beanies. "These new pieces for my Bodywear range at H&M have a real energy about them," Beckham says in a press release. "I genuinely enjoy the creative process with H&M, and we have had fun this time playing with color and texture. I hope people like them as much as I do." Personally, we love the kneecap patches (above). They could come in handy for the gays! Look for the new items in H&M stores on August 21.
Here's a look at him. For anyone not in the US (like me), it's unlikely you've already had the pleasure. Cody is one of Big Brother (US) 16's contestants and is a C-IN2 underwear model, understandably.
Check out Cody in his Athletic Grip advert for C-IN2 on YouTube below.
What if there was a gay-owned underwear company that made promotional videos that didn't show underwear? Oh wait, there is! Or at least not a lot of underwear. Los Angeles-based Andrew Christian always makes entertaining and fun clips showcasing its extensive line of provocative undies, jockstraps, swimwear and more. Sometimes they even feature gay porn stars.
The latest, "Black/White" from creator Jeff White, includes a gaggle of our guys, and it's particularly heavy on those Cocky Boys, including the two Levis (Karter and Michaels), Ricky Roman, Duncan Black and Tayte Hanson (whose debut scene just came out). You'll also find recent Helix Studios returnee Max Carter, Topher DiMaggio, Seth Knight and the company's latest "Trophy Boy" contest winner Jake Houser (below) kissing and cavorting in the buff to bouncy dance music. Check out the sexy vid above, and let's all pray that Jake makes the easy leap from underwear model to gay porn star pronto! For more information, visit Andrew Christian.
As soon as you get a new pair of underwear home and unwrapped, it's important to try it on. That means testing out how it handles FES (Full Erectile Stretch). That's a real term I just made up but it's still real.
Look for the "FES-Certified" label when shopping for underwear so you don't end up with loose hanging fabric making unsightly lines and bringing discomfort under your pants. If you even ever wear pants.
It's incredible to imagine, but this pair will bounce back to full seamless tightness even after the brutal treatment by this massive erection. He may have a feature as an underwear tester. If a pair can survive him, they can survive anybody. Of course, a bulge busting out a hole in a pair of underwear is not a tragedy as long as the right guy is nearby to deal with the situation.
When in doubt, become an underwear model! The latest victim, er, example of this credo is sexy Alex Minsky. To be honest, we had never heard of this former Marine until our friends at Gay Daily Hot News ran some full-frontal (and fully erect!) pics of the heavily tattooed stud (fun fact: he has an armpit tat!). That got our attention right quick. It turns out that Alex has been making a name for himself since returning from Afghanistan, where he lost a leg in a roadside bomb explosion in 2009. After a long recovery, he started exercising and was discovered by photographer Tom Cullis at the gym.
Now we know that this 24-year-old Newport Beach, California, resident is a recovering alcoholic who spends four hours a day working out. He also rubbed elbows with Barbara Walters as a guest on The View last week. (Wonder if Babs was thinking about Alex's naked pics when she started talking about her vibrator...again. Ewwww!) Now Alex has announced that he's furthering his career by becoming an underwear model for Jack Adams. We've noted the excellent model choices of this company before. But Alex definitely takes it to another level. To see Minsky talk about how he's "just a dude," watch the video above. And you can see him in all his glory below. For more info, visit Jack Adams USA.
The award-winning Lucas Kazan studio has discovered another smoldering Italian guy, and his name is Samuele Mistro. According to director Ettore Tosi, the Sicilian stud is "a natural. Far from inhibiting him, the camera brings out Samuele's dazzling smile, an ebullient personality and striking facial traits." Ettore adds that the smooth 19-year-old jock was so at ease with the camera, "we had to censor half of his interview." God only knows what else Sam said, but we do learn that he's obsessed with his teacher's ass. Hmmm. Tosi concludes, "We couldn't help but falling in love with him." Maybe viewers will too?!
