Being a life-long bachelor has its obvious perks, but now it’s also as healthy a lifestyle as being married — arguably even healthier. Back in 1973, a Michigan State University sociologist started surveying men, single, widowed, and betrothed, about their health without giving them medical examinations. Since then, Dr. Hui Liu has interviewed over a million men from 25 to 80. At first, his research seemed to conclude that married men were in the best shape. But over the years, as they asked each demographic how they felt, the gap began to narrow between those who were married and those who were single. Keep reading »
Pineapple Express, the latest comedy from writer/producer Judd Apatow (Knocked Up, 40 Year Old Virgin), opened over the weekend. While the reviews considered it a heist caper, to us, it was a bromantic comedy featuring James Franco, Seth Rogan, and Danny McBride. Foxy Franco was briefly, but satisfyingly, shirtless, and readily able to express his bro-on-bro love to his buddies. Seth Rogan, on the other hand, never stops being adorable. He spends the film in a suit and then saves the day wearing nothing but tighty-whities and striped knee socks to the knee. Fresh meat Danny McBride is the new funny man making the rounds in Hollywood. You can catch more of him in action next in Tropic Thunder, which opens this weekend. But forget the fight sequences and car chases in this flick, as these three gentlemen espoused fart jokes, we swooned. Keep reading »
Idris Elba is probably most famous for his role as “Stringer” Bell on HBO’s The Wire. I remember wanting more after watching a really brief intimate scene with this Brit and an actress on that show, but the producers didn’t answer my prayers. I’m hoping Obsessed, which he stars in opposite Beyonce in 2009, will satisfy my hunger to see his chiseled, well-oiled physique. I guess it’s only fair to mention that besides being a kick-ass television and theater actor, Idris is also a DJ under the moniker DJ Big Driis/Big Driis the Londoner, and a hip-hop soul recording artist.

Male swimmers are not thought of as the most masculine of athletes because they have to shave their legs and wear tight suits to cut down on resistance, which makes them swim faster. But swimmers have hot bodies. Some of the hottest, in fact. They pretty much always have broad shoulders, toned backs, and sick abs. Unfortunately, swimsuit companies like Speedo started making super high-tech suits for women and men that cover their entire bodies, reducing drag and making them even more streamlined in the water. This is good for the swimmers, bad for world records, and just awful for us. We miss looking at the guys’ nice torsos and appreciate when they opt for a half-body suit instead (above left). But, I guess we shouldn’t complain too much since the suits in question were worn by the winning U.S.A. boys in the 400-meter relay yesterday (above right). Keep reading »
On Tuesday night, I went, by myself, all the way up to Harlem to watch Eddie Vedder perform solo. No one would come with me because of the distance and because, I suspect, they didn’t want to be seen with me, knowing I would act like a looney. And act like a looney I did! I was reminded why almost missing Pearl Jam in 1993 nearly sent me to suicide — because Eddie is just a phenomenal singer and performer. I even overlooked the fact that he appeared to be wearing white jeans, especially when he used a loop sampler to layer his own vocals to sound like a ridiculously awful but horny R&B slow jam.

I have this theory that if I had had sexual relations with my fiance on the first date, rather than, um, later down the line (hi, future in-laws!), we would probably not be getting married, because we probably wouldn’t have had a second date. Not to make my fiance sound like an a-hole, because he really is not, but he definitely, at that single guy period of his life, was intrigued by my insistence that we take it slow. If we had slept together right away, there wouldn’t have been an excuse to see me again — like a lot of horny dudes, I’m sure he was initially interested in me for my amazingly hot body (kidding!), and, you know, a dash of my winning personality and intelligence. I know there’s a theory floating from woman to woman which says that, if you’re actually interested in a guy for more than just sex, you should wait to sleep with him until the third date — women, and I am totally generalizing here, think men lose interest if you sleep with them before that third date and also lose interest if you wait longer than that. Curious to see if this is true at all and if women give men enough credit, I decided to ask a few of the guys on my IM. And ladies? You can sleep with these dudes whenever you want. It’s clear that first date, third date, 50th date, they are down.

Olympians — noble, athletic, competitive, and so, so very sexy! We could watch them go for the gold all day long (especially if “going for the gold” was used in a more colloquial way). We will be glued and drooling to all the Summer Olympics action which kicks off in Beijing on Friday. To make sure you don’t miss a manly moment, check out The Frisky’s picks for the Top Ten Studliest Olympians of 2008!

Rapper T.I.’s video for “Whatever You Like” premieres tonight at 8pm on BET’s Access Granted, so we thought we’d show you his handsome face in preparation. Keep reading »
We just can’t get enough of James Franco! And surprisingly enough, we want the recent Daily Hotness stud for more than just his body — we actually love the James Dean look-a-like for his mind too. Sure his smarts and self-depreciating humor are like icing on a cake (umm, a delicious, super talented cake filled with good looks and and big screen street cred), but we’ve been loving the short films that Franco made with his brother on Funny or Die. In the above web-isode, produced by Pinapple Express‘ Judd Apatow, James teaches his brother Dave to cry on camera by drawing on a memory of his first pet, a cat who was put to sleep. And check out just how great his genes are in this response tape by his equally adorable and hilarious mom. Keep reading »
I didn’t take notice of Jeffrey Donovan until last year when his hit summer show Burn Notice premiered. Now, I never miss an opportunity to drool over him as he dodges bullets, helps the unfortunate and beats down bad guys on season two. Since Jeffrey has a black belt in karate and is studying Brazilian jiujitsu, I like to think that all his fight scenes are real. (Please don’t burst my bubble if you know otherwise.) Also, I’m really impressed with his MFA from New York University. You’ve gotta love an actor that hones his skills both physically and theatrically. Keep reading »
