Ever wanted to spend a day with Derek Allen Watson?
With this exclusive shoot for The Underwear Expert, photographed by Gabriel Gastelum, you get a sneak peek into the high-energy mornings of the hot model as he wears looks from underwear brand Baskit, using his apartment as a playground. Fast-paced and sexy, Derek shows us there's never a dull moment when it comes to him.
Check out some of the photos from the shoot, then head over to The Underwear Expert for the rest of the set.
This is the latest in a series of posts by The Underwear Expert.
Famed photographer Adrian C. Martin does it again—this time teaming up with sexy model Esau Garcia along the rocks of Tenerife, Canary Islands.
This scenic location is ideal for shooting an editorial of items from the Malebasics' Spot and Geometrics Collections. Garcia looks gorgeous in these flattering designs from the brand, and the location itself is just as breathtaking.

Shooter Armando Adajar is a professional photographer based in San Diego who's completed a Specialized Program in Visual Arts, Digital Photography at UC Berkeley and I studied Fashion Photography at Fashion Institute of Technology in New York. He specializes in fitness work, so we will be great friends going forward.
Check out his work in the gallery above, featuring sexy model Shane Sousa in Marcuse Swimwear, PULL-IN Swimwear, Barcode Berlin, CLEVER and Good Devil.
One more racier shot of Shane is at my Work Unfriendly Tumblr.

What's a “gay book,” anyway?
Is it a book with a gay theme? One with no gay theme but whose author is gay? One specifically about being gay, written by a gay author? Must it be pro-gay, or can it be anti-? Does it count if it's exploitative and prurient?
Regardless of your definition, the heyday of the gay novel is behind us. Yes, there are still books by, for, and about gay people, but it's not like in the '70s and '80s, when gay novels took off, or the early '90s, when they'd become a bona fide boom business.
Not long after, they went bust, and the days when you might read a review calling a work of fiction, “The best gay novel of the year!” went with them. As did gay bookstores...when was the last time you were inside a gay bookstore? Were there any woolly mammoth footprints pressed into the clay?
Part of the reason a booming literary niche was decimated is good—we became less concerned with obsessing over our place in the world as the world became less convinced we were aliens and/or carriers of disease and/or agents of Satan. (Not that a huge chunk of the world doesn't still ponder those questions.) As we have been assimilated, we've become less excited by existentialist literary endeavors and more likely to spring for, say, books about the first time various anonymous narrators had gay sex, or coffee-table books of nude men or books with no discernible gay sensibility at all.
But I miss the days when the gay novel was a big deal. I miss being in my college bookstore and grabbing an Edmund White tome and flipping it to a passage where two farmboys “cornhole” each other, and realizing that it wasn't pornography, but rather was frank, familiar, terrifyingly emotional art.
For fun, I'm including a collection of the first and last sentences of as many gay novels as I could readily lay my hands on. I'm sticking with the books' proper first and last sentences, so am leaving out things like dates and places (“New York, 1983") in the case of books that begin or end with letters, and I'm also ignoring the “hmmm”-inspiring epigraphs that so often appear at the beginning of a novel.
These are not meant to be my choices for "the best gay books." But most of my favorite gay novels are included and you will undoubtedly have read and loved many of them.
Actually...how many have you read?
If these tantalizingly brief samples don't make you curious to read some of these books, nothing will.
I would absolutely love to receive your contributions (title, year, author, first line, last line) so I can make this a living post...
In his Details (April 2014) cover story, Game of Thrones boner-inducer Nikolaj Coster-Waldau talks about the "hi!" price of fame, namely, horny fanboys:
"Yeah, it's crazy. There are some very intense fans. We did a premiere last year in Seattle, and I got a taste of it. It was a little claustrophobic. All these people wanting to take a picture with me. One guy was like, 'Do you mind if I take a picture of your shoe? I have a thinkg with shoes...'"
