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.

TOTALLY RANDOM LISTS (2011—2013)

I've gotten way into lists. Way. You'll find more of my lists higher up on, uh, this particular list. But the ones that are just completely random go here because I worked my ass off on them, because I love them and because—judging from Quantcast data—you like 'em, too.

Brando-DeanI wish sex tapes had existed in the '50s.

I got lots of feedback on this, mainly because nobody realized Nell Carter was with a woman at the time of her death.

PSBI hate that music has been sleeveless for 20 years.

20 7" SINGLE SLEEVES FROM THE '80S THAT BELONG IN A GALLERY (2013)

POLITICS (2005—2013)

I'm a political person and I blog about it a lot. Some of the entries stand up over time, but many are so of the moment it was hard to pull the ones I like best.

Kevin-James-Adam-SandlerWhere Kevin James goes, (unintentional!!!) homophobia follows.

TRUNZO IS DUNZO (2007)

Star Magazine implying gay people aren't quite right? Not normal! This took off on several blogs and GLAAD got an apology from Trunzo over it. Some people think it's being "oversensitive," but Jesus...how much clearer is "Man to man" with a huge "NOT" (NORMAL) stamped over it?

Mario Lopez heats up Fitness RX For Men! (November 2013) in an exclusive photo shoot by Per Bernal.

Of his relentless maintenance of superfitness, Lopez has this to say:

"Working out complements everything else that I do in every aspect of my life. It gives me more energy; it gives me more confidence. It makes me feel better about myself."

As if he needed the ego boost! But I'm glad he does it, because his work-outs give me more energy, too.

Anchorman-Sequel-1333031817I'm certain I'm forgetting some, so rather than put a set-in-stone ranking out there, I thought I'd do this list of superhot TV hosts/newsmen/presenters alphabetically. They're all sexy in their own way, no?

Please feel free to post names that belong on this list, especially locals I might otherwise never get to ogle...

This is the thirteenth in a series of articles by The Underwear Expert

The Super Bowl is this Sunday, which means lots of athletes running around in tight pants. We tried putting together a gallery of homo-erotic images of football players throwing down and putting out to celebrate, but the recent mumbling about gays and football not getting along has a sour taste in our mouths. That, and we couldn't find any pictures of football players playing in their underwear.

We have a gallery, though, which in all honesty is probably better. We've got four images of guys wrestling in their underwear, which is all football is anyway...right?

In this small series, you'll see Barcode Berlin and Timoteo underwear, as well as two guys we wish would wrestle. Happy Super Bowl, everyone.

And now that we've shown you how much hotter wrestling is than football, check out these two dreamy hunks--Mario Lopez and Jed Hill--in their wrestling gear. Cue imaginary wrestling match now!

I don't see the chimney, but I'm sure Mario Lopez is hung with care. But you can't tell in this shot from behind, taken and posted by his undeserving bride on her Twitter. (She seems to tweet every 10 seconds...with Mario Lopez running around the house???)
