Boy Culture Turns 8: My 100 Favorite Posts! Comments (0)

BoyCultureBlogYou need a little (Boy) Culture!

StripperIt blows my mind to realize that Boy Culture is now eight years old. I can still remember the joy I felt when I figured out how to post, how to upload an image and how to embed a video. I remember every time a post blew up, bringing in hits and new viewers. I remember the longtime commenters, the trolls, the spam and the never-ending (and validating!) pitches and free tickets and photographers' snaps of half- or all-naked male models. 

RuPaul-Drag-RaceShooting for my blog has never been a drag.

Cone-boyI've used Boy Culture to express myself, to help express others and to connect to people internationally.

I've also used it to show off my humor (both high and low), to flaunt my obsessions, to reality-test my sexual diversions and perversions, to laud the art I love, to lash out against the enemies of gay people and to broadcast my admiration for Madonna.

I want to thank you all for having read this blog over the years. It's a very hard thing to maintain, and it will not be maintained forever. But each time I get some positive (or even just meaningful) feedback, each time my posts are shared on social media, each time something I've written elicits a response, it keeps me going that much longer.

Madonna-stepmother-Joan-MDNAMadonna's stepmother was not impressed.

Thank you. Please enjoy my 100 favorite posts, please let me know if you're reading any old ones for the first time and are liking them and, most of all, please share this entire post far and wide to help get my work out there.

Strip Steak: An Interview With Jeff Timmons And Glenn Packard Of MEN OF THE STRIP Comments (0)

Jeff-american-1Jeff Timmons started at 98* and only got hotter.

Hot—some would say red-hot—off the heels of his successful gig emceeing for the Chippendales in Vegas, Jeff Timmons, everbuff founding member of 98°, has launched an equally sexy venture with acclaimed choreographer Glenn Packard: Men of the Strip.

Glenn-PackardGlenn Packard: Choreographer and pec-wrangler.

The concept is that Jeff and a troupe of too-hot show-offs are touring the country with a tight stage show, with the whole thing being filmed.

I caught up with my old buddies (98° was the first pro photo shoot I ever assigned) to get the not-so-skinny on their ripped revue...

In The Naked City: The Adonis Lounge Turns 4 With 2 Big Parties This Weekend Comments (0)

Adonis-TimTim de Iturriaga: Stripper whisperer.

Adonis_DSC0577-copy-copyThe first thing that needs to be asked is: How in the fuck has Timothy de Iturriaga never seen Magic Mike? The sexy, lanky boss of NYC's Wednesday and Saturday night strip club The Adonis Lounge (at Evolve on W. 58th and 3rd) practically is Matthew McConaughey's "Dallas," a wise, clever male-strip revue maestro who puts the mileage on his own can to good use directing newbies on how to turn a buck with a bump and a grind and a little illusory TLC.

"I haven't seen the movie, so I can't speak to what it's about," he tells me during our interview, conducted over the construction noise of a small crew renovating the club's back room. I nearly drop the camera.


It's like if a high-powered magazine owner admitted to never having seen The Devil Wears Prada.

Adonis-Tim-2"Don't fall in love with a stripper."

But the McConaughey character comparison is not an exact match, because while de Iturriaga's got Dallas's smarts, he's got "Magic Mike's" (Channing Tatum) cheerful disposition and easygoing Adonis-Tim-strippersnature. He also gives good face—he told me he'd dreaded our video interview after smoothly talking into my camera for 20 minutes like he didn't have a care in the world. And all of the undeniably hot-looking (don't look for any sixes or sevens at Adonis, everyone is eight or above), hot-moving men at the club whom I've spoken to have praised Tim as a good guy who looks out for them.

Hey, it comes in handy having a boss as massive as the national debt when a client scores a five-song lap dance off of you and wants to walk without paying. Not that de Iturriaga gets into fistfights, but he is a one-man good cop/bad cop. "I suck dick," he says, figuratively, "and they usually wind up paying. But the executives who won't pay, the guys with black cards, them I get loud with. Either way, I always get the money. And luckily, 99% of our clients are at Adonis to have fun, not rip dancers off."

In GQ's December 2012 issue, Channing Tatum is declared to be one of the venerable men's magazine's "Men of the Year."

In his interview, he talks about his crazy work schedule over the past few years:

"Big actors have told me to get it while the getting is good. Grind it. Ahhh, I'm not gonna drop names. You konw, very successful, smart actors. And they were like, 'Grind it. If you love it, grind it.' I did. And a lot of people who didn't grind it, it's not that they're not in a good place, but I'm in a better place."

"The Amazing Race" could easily refer to some superhuman species to which these two belong

I recently spent some quality time in a tiny hotel room with Jaymes & James, the world's most Jaymes-and-James-Amazing-Race-Matthew-Rettenmundfamous Chippendales dancers. With my camera in tow, we had to drag the bed out of our way and figure out a good spot to show them off to their best advantage while still accomodating their hulking frames. "This feels like a porn," Jaymes joked. I swear it actually did. But of course the Chippendales are not seedy—they're razzle-dazzle and wink-wink, fun and fantasy.

Jaymes-and-James-shirtlessThe guys are raising cash to help Jaymes's dad

These two Chips are currently promoting a sizzling Chippendales 2012/2013 Sixteen Month Calendar with photography by John Ganun, out now, as well as their solo music careers and their goal to raise $250K to help Jaymes's desperately ill father. I also got a little Amazing Race dish out of them
