Prattso: Chris Pratt On Plumping Up & Leaning Out—Both On Purpose Comments (0)
  Chris-Pratt-Mens-Fitness-3 Chris-Pratt-Mens-Fitness-4 Chris-Pratt-Mens-Fitness-2

Chris-Pratt-Mens-Fitness-1Chris Pratt, to me, is incredibly hot when he's a little porky and when he buffs out for a role. He must've posed for Men's Fitness (July/August 2014) during one of the latter, Guardians of the Galaxy periods, because he's looking tight!

But back to the chub: In the magazine, Pratt addresses his character's noteworthy weight gain on Parks and Recreation, saying it was for art:

“I remember seeing an episode in Season 2, and I was like, 'Goddamn, I've gained some weight,' but then I watched, and it was the funniest I'd ever been on the show. I'm not saying that fat is funny, but misplaced confidence is funny, and 'Andy' is someone who is not fit but walks around like he is. So I went back the next day, and I told [showrunner] Mike Schur, 'I want to gain 20 to 30 pounds.' He said, 'Great.' I'd found this niche: fat and funny.”

I'd take him on the way up or on the way down.

Cock-Blocker Jon Hamm On His Schlong: Don't Even Comments (0)
  Jon-Hamm-Mens-Fitness-5 Jon-Hamm-Mens-Fitness-2 Jon-Hamm-Mens-Fitness-3 Jon-Hamm-Mens-Fitness-4 Jon-Hamm-Mens-Fitness-6

Jon Hamm looks superhot on and in Men's Fitness (May 2014)...and his best asset isn't even spotlighted!

Jon-Hamm-Mens-Fitness-1

Actually, the intrepid interviewer succeeds in getting Hamm on the record about his legendary package, even if Hamm is quite dismissive of all the hype (which, to be fair, is probably mostly fueled by PhotoShop at this point):

“That's the dark side of all this [fame], I guess. As a nonfamous person, would you want people walking up to you and pointing to your dick? I can't believe I'm talking about this. But I've worn underwear every day of my life, and the fact that I'm painted as this exhibitionist is a little annoying. It's become a meme, I guess. Being someone who people want to photograph, you have to open yourself up to the positive and negative. It is what it is. If I get mad at it I'll look like a douche bag. But it's silly”

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.

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?

The Walking Dead's Norman Reedus is so not a fashiony type, he tells Men's Fitness (December 2013) that when he was hand-chosen to pose for Prada, he asked, "What's Prada?"

Check out his moody shots (you can hear "Bittersweet Symphony" playing as you eyeball him) from the mag in the gallery above.

Football stud Russell Wilson covers Men's Fitness (October 2013). Suddenly, roughness doesn't seem so unnecessary anymore, now does it?

The article begins with a quote from his work-out drill sergeant, barking:

"You want to catch the log in your stomach, never in your chest."

I guess there isn't an exact parallel that makes this dirty, but it sure sounds like something would hesistate to repeat in polite company.

In (and on) Men's Fitness (July/August 2013), Hugh Jackman looks fantastic, and talks about how being nice has led to some bad photo-shoot choices:

"I can look back at a couple of photo shoots and say, 'Oh, my God, it's so not me,' where the stylists had brought clothes they wanted me to wear, and I said all right, which is a bit pathetic; but I was way more worried about hurting their feelings."

He keeps it simple this time, as you can see in the gallery above. Best bet when the stylist brings lame outfits: Birthday suit.

Jason Statham covers Men's Fitness (February 2013). In the article, he reveals his big-screen heroes:

"Paul Newman, Steve McQueen, Clint Eastwood. It's funny, most of my on-screen heroes are sort of the ones of yesteryear. I just thought they had a bit of a laid-back coolness to them."
