It's not that I think stupidity should be punishable by death. I just think we should take the warning labels off of everything and let the problem take care of itself.

Slap! - David Spriggs
Today's slap, suggested by Bill over at Tottyland is David Spriggs. Bill suggested him AGES ago and I've just been dicking around about it since then, but I was looking through my suggestion box this morning and came across him. WOW. I had slapped him way back in October, but there are some great new pics out there. And, since David is an Aussie footballer, you might suspect that Bill has a few hot pics of his own - you'd be right. Thanks for letting me swipe a couple, Bill, I promise I didn't link to them... Oh, and I'll probably be swiping Mark McVeigh soon - just so you know.

More David Spriggs

He is one of the hottest guys this month- reminds me of the Carlson twins.

Slap! - Cameron Mathison
Today's slap, at the suggestion of cupre, is Cameron Mathison, made famous, I suppose, by playing "Ryan Lavery" on All My Children. IMDB notes that Cameron played Ryan through 2002, stopped for a while, and came back in 2003. It leaves me wondering what happened to him during that time - was he swallowed by a sea monster, only to be cloned by the recklessly brilliant (but beautiful) Dr. Lysistrata Schwartz from a DNA sample found on his hairbrush? Inquiring minds and all...

Anyway, lately, he's been the host of I Wanna Be a Soap Star on SoapNet, helping 12 eager contestants try to win a recurring role on the mother of all soap operas General Hospital. Ah, reality TV. How did we live so long without it?

More Cameron Mathison

Fun fact: My mortgage broker played a cop on G.H. for a couple of years.

He is very handsome..but with the hairy arms he has, I would love to see him without the shaved chest. Time for some more 'hairier'men..hint hint hint

Slap! - Kip Pardue
Today's slap, inspired by some new (hot) pictures of him on Dreamcaps is Kip Pardue. I remember him most vividly from his naughty bits scene in The Rules of Attraction - which was also memorable, of course, for Ian Somerhalder smooching James Van Der Beek.

More Kip Pardue

Now this is what I'm talking about!! Is there anything wrong with this guy? He's incredible!

UPDATE: Bill was kind enough to send a few more pics of the lovely Dan over. Check 'em out!

Slap! - Frederic Michalak
Joe suggested today's slap, French rugger Frederic Michalak. I can't believe I've never slapped him before - I mean, I've got all of those Stade pics here on my hard drive, and I look at them constantly. Weird. Oh, and I do have one important question: The rest of those Stade guys are always showing their naughty bits. Why isn't Frederic??

Anyway, here he is:

You can find a bunch more great pics of Frederic here.

Going back to the twins theme, today's slap, at the suggestion of Darwin, is The Barbera Twins. Specifically, Darwin wants to find out who'll be "on top" for July. Sounds good to me.

Slap! - Lance Armstrong
Today's slap is American cycling sensation Lance Armstrong. He won yet another Tour de France today, further cementing his reuptation as one of the best cyclists ever. He hadn't won a stage in this tour, but rode an incredible time trial, beating 2nd overall (at the start of the stage) Ivan Basso by 1' 54" and Jan Ullrich (and 4th overall at the start of the stage), long considered one of his biggest rivals, by 23".

As an interesting note, the announcers were estimating that Lance was riding the stage at about 55 kph (34 mph). Incredible, after nearly 3000 km of riding over the past few weeks to put in a performance like that.

I didn't catch much of the Tour, but I watched the St-Etienne time trial yesterday and caught Danish rider Mickael Rasmussen having a complete meltdown with at least 2 crashes and 4 bike changes. Wow.

Anyway, here's Lance winning last year's Tour:

More Lance Armstrong

UPDATE: Roy was kind enough to point me to a photo of Lance that I had missed - the one by Annie Leibovitz. I can't believe I missed it - Thanks, Roy!

How hot is Ivan Basso?!! He
definitely deserves a slap too.
Dan | 2011-05-09 21:51

Here's a link to some SI photos:

There are some childhood photos, plus a few of him in a speedo.

Well, they're not twins, but in this case that's better - sticking at least with the multiple-births theme today I'm slapping the absolutely stunning Karshner Triplets. Good God, what more could anyone want???

UPDATE: Shout out to Bill over at Tottyland for some extra pics of the triplets!

Slap! - FDNY
Today's slap, at Kip's excellent suggestion, is the men of the Fire Department of New York. Just yesterday they released their 2006 Calendar of Heroes for sale to raise money for the FDNY Fire Safety Education Fund.

Once again, it's nice to be able to combine politics and hot guys -- I just wish I could have found bigger pictures of them. But you can have lots of big pictures by buying your copy.

Slap! - Rodrigo Santoro
Today's slap, at the suggestion of Greg, is hot Brazilian actor Rodrigo Santoro. Most notably he was in the god awful Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle, and while he looked very pretty he could have been naked on screen for the entire movie and it still would have sucked. Ugh. Nevertheless, here he is:

Come into my parlour
Good god. A (straight) friend with whom I occasionally do some work has a "summer intern". He graduated from UT within the past couple of years and is getting ready to head back there for law school. The intern came over to Aspen to do some work today and had to borrow one of my tools, so he stopped by the condo. I opened the door at a loss for words. While he was not the spitting image of Chad Michael Murray, there was enough of a look going on that I was struck dumb.

So I'm thrilled that he has to bring it back.

Blogs in Space!
A Florida-based company, MindComet, is offering a free service that will beam blogs into deep space via satellite. I wonder if I should sign up to have Bent beamed out to twink-loving E.T's? Or should I take CEO Ted Murphy's advice:
We strongly urge our users to refrain from language or content designed to provoke our alien neighbors
But how could aliens find the Carlson twins offensive???

Zach and Love in Action
John has a slightly different look at the controversey over Zach and Love in Action.

Slap! - The Brewer Twins
BeachguyLA was kind enough to point out that while I had slapped the Carlson twins, I had not slapped the Brewer Twins, Derek and Keith. He expressed skepticism that the Carlson twins could compete. Well, I leave it to you, gentle reader - who wins?? And of course there's always the vote at the end of the month. I dare say that both sets of twins (plus a few other goodies still to come this month) will be in the voting.

Personally, I don't really care who wins, I just like looking at them. All of them.

More Brewer Twins

The incest shot at the end is a bit too much for me... I have to give to the better endowed Carlson Twins.
dae | 2011-05-09 21:51

I'd go with the Carlson twins, too. Although I wouldn't take them as twins, I do like Drew Daniel from last year's "Big Brother."
Mr. Thrill | 2011-05-09 21:51

Slap! - Eric Mabius
Today's slap is actor Eric Mabius. He played a closeted athlete in Cruel Intentions, manipulated into bed with Joshua Jackson. He's also been on Showtime's lesbian drama The L Word.

I'm afraid, given the comments from yesterday, that Eric is a bit of a letdown. But once again, I kind of like his more "human" features.

Slap! - The Carlson Twins
Today's slap is (are?) the incomparable Carlson Twins. I was shocked - shocked, I tell you - when Blair suggested them and I realized that I have NEVER slapped them. Not once. And they SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO need it. The trouble with these two, of course, is that they're going to pose a significant challenge to my perfect man Raoul Bova for Slap of the Month. Oh well, Raoul will just have to work harder.

More Carlson Twins

Oh, and thanks to all the people - all over everywhere - from whom I swiped these pics.

Whose are the hottest guys on earth. i agree slap of the year.
anonymous | 2011-05-09 21:51

Those guys are amazingly built, BUT if given the choice (dream) I'd pick Raoul over these vapid guys any day. For some reason, their showing-all just isn't as sexy...and the implications of incest are creepy.
cupre | 2011-05-09 21:51


anyone can tell if they're cut or uncut?

jaysun | 2011-05-09 21:51

Okay, I'll grant you that they're gorgeous. But don't give up on Raoul just yet. Check out the link to his calendar pics at and think again! After drooling over Raoul and the Carlson Twins, I'm worried about dehydration.

Spike | 2011-05-09 21:51

I guess the thing I find most amazing, or some what startling about the guy is that he's the father of like 3-4 kids. He just seems so young. But he was alway my favorite part of 98 degrees.

Slap! - Johnson and Johnson
In keeping with my goal of the occasional political slap, today's honoree is Johnson & Johnson. Via Ben over at The Beav comes this ad that was placed for Tylenol in The Advocate. The American Family Association is currently promoting a letter writing campaign over this ad and over the unmitigated gall that J&J showed for advertising on the new network, Logo. I highly encourage everyone to let Johnson & Johnson know how you feel. Just use the AFA's bandwidth - they don't mind.

Oh, and I love it when I can combine a political slap with hot guys:

Slap! - Graham Ackerman
I was reminded of my need to slap today's victim by Saturn. I slapped him way back, but there are just so many good things about Graham Ackerman that he needs another belt. Good things? What good things? Well, lemme tell ya.

1) He has a beautiful body.

2) He's an out college athlete.

3) His body is stunning.

4) He seems like a really nice guy.

5) He's so smoking hot I can't stand it.

6) He won the floor exercise in the 2005 Men's Collegiate Gymnastics Championships.

Slap! - James Franco
Today's slap is actor James Franco. I slapped him way back in November, but Bruce reminded me that I haven't slapped him in a while - and I need to get him in the Slap of the Month rotation. Not that he has a chance in hell against my future ex-husband, Raul Bova, but he's really pretty so he deserves his spot anyway.

So, if you don't remember, he's the rich kid from the Spider-Man movies. And lots of people also talk about his resemblance to former movie idol James Dean, and he played Dean in the eponymous TV movie about the actor.

More James Franco

UPDATE: I don't know what the fuck is wrong with me. The movie with the scene featuring him tied to the bed is Whatever it Takes.

Help....the pics of him tied to the bed...what movie is that...please tell me...i have to see it. Wow, this guy is so bleeping hot :)
gary | 2011-05-09 21:51

Slap! - Raoul Bova
Today's slap, courtesy of some lovely person over at the Famousmales forums is Italian actor Raoul Bova. You probably remember him from Under the Tuscan Sun, but he'll always be the image of Gap to me. That ad of his was INCREDIBLE.

He has just the perfect amount of chest hair for me. I think I've decided on July's Slap of the Month.

I'm 47 and have lived in S.C. for most of my life. Except for when I was a child, noone here uses the term "coloured". The only people who uses it are "liberals" attributing it to us. By the way, I,m of mixed race and the only people who has ever bothered me were black.
Chkstoy | 2011-05-09 21:51

I personally hope that you continue to showcase men of ALL races on The Daily Slap. I love men..all of them... no matter what the color of their skin.
Doug | 2011-05-09 21:51

Mhmm ... and noone is supposed to call gays 'fags', but they do. I'm not bothered about being PC, they can call me what they like, I'll call them what they like. I apologise if this mentality upsets you, but if you wish, go feel superior.

I don't like to stereotype, but other people have already set the prerequisites for someone to be considered stereotypical, white people, and people of mixed race are a lot more aesthetically pleasing to me than stereotypical non-white people, of course there are neither white nor stereotypical and those are the ones who only really deserve mentioning. Taye Diggs is stereotypical. Again, if it upsets you, feel superior.

If you think I sound incredibly shallow, then I'll refer you to the first syllable of my 'name', because that's the only think I come to this website for, and I highly doubt I'm the only one.

But whatever, this isn't my blog, so I'll just sit back and hope for more Andrew-Stetson-esque pretty boys.

Hurricane Dennis
Jeb Bush made an important announcement this morning about Hurricane Dennis.

Slap! - Taye Diggs
Today's slap, at the suggestion of Saturn is actor Taye Diggs. Taye got his start in soaps (yes, that tired old cliche), but has since moved on to bigger and better things. His breakthrough role seems to have been as Winston Shakespeare in How Stella Got Her Groove Back - which I am disappointed to say that I've never seen, but my husband and I hardly get to any movies at all. More exciting to me, however, is his upcoming role as Benjamin Coffin III in the November release of Rent.

More Taye Diggs

Those pesky Iraqi fags!
Todd over at The Swift Report sent along this dispatch from Washington. In an important policy announcement about the war in Iraq, President Bush had this important announcement:
President Bush reassured Americans this week that he has not lost sight of the reason that the US went into Iraq more than two years ago: to defend traditional marriage in that country. Mr. Bush articulated a clear strategy for attaining that goal, including an amendment to the Iraqi constitution that will define marriage as a union between one man and one woman.

The Natural Movement
SteveXS sent along an excellent e-mail about guys "going natural". That is, not being afraid to show that they have hair on various parts of their body. He sent it along ages ago, and I'm just now getting it up, but I know certain readers of this blog will approve wholeheartedly.

As for me, I agree in principle, but there are some things that, while they may not need to be plucked, often need trimming.

So with no further ado here it is:


The Natural Movement

Whether nature has embroidered your muscles and other body parts with hair -- or left them boldly bare -- celebrate the real you.

A man’s true self is seen in his body as nature grows it. Exercise and care of the body are natural, good, and incredibly hot. Spoiling the body’s natural adornment is wrong and sometimes even repulsive.

Don’t mutilate your natural glory. It’s only neurotically vain dudes or men in doubt about their identity who shave, trim, wax, pluck, or otherwise disfigure their chests, armpits, crotches, asses, balls, or legs. Prettification by hair removal only feeds the fantasies of pervs turned on by prepubescent boys, women who want to imagine that their men aren’t real men, or weight-lifters obsessed with clones instead of real people.

Don’t settle for being just another pretty boy or a slick, buffed clone. Celebrate who YOU are. Take pride in your uniqueness. You are you and nobody else!

P.S. Steve, is there a web site?

Slap! - Ryan Daharsh
Today's slap is stunning model Ryan Daharsh as recently showcased by Lewispayton guest blogging for Andy over at Towleroad. I found a few more pics of Ryan at Famousmales and decided he was just too fucking stunning to ignore.

More Ryan Daharsh

Ryan's face helps make him - smokin' bods are common amongst models nowadays, but his face - and the lovely golden curls around it - make him stand out. Truly beautiful all around
Brian | 2011-05-09 21:51

Um, this dude has a GORGEOUS face. As well as the rest of him!
Spike | 2011-05-09 21:51

Ryan is a perfect form of Virilty & Boticelli.
An immense structural perfection and an emotional well spring of masculinity

Does he have contact information?

The local fauna
Walking around last night after drinks we ran across a bear who had been dumpster diving (click the image to see it larger):

Yup - the white stuff in his mouth is trash. Not surprising, really. One time we saw a bear trying to abscond with an entire dumpster. Wish I had a pic of that.

Slap! - Matthew Settle
Today's slap is actor Matthew Settle. He's probably best known for his role as Captain Speirs in Band of Brothers, but he's been in a few other things, including U-571 and Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood.

More Matthew Settle

UPDATE: Thanks to David for sending along a full-frontal pic of Matthew. Nice!!

Slapdate! - Tom Boonen
Courtesy of Bill over at Tottyland comes a nice shirtless pic of April slap (and Belgian cyclist) Tom Boonen.

And if you don't already, I highly recommend checking out Bill's hot guys every day.

But don't link to it lol

Slap! - Christiano Ronaldo
Today's slap is the incredibly hot Christiano Ronaldo - footballer for Manchester United. Born in Portugal, this 20-year-old has certainly made lots of headlines lately - and with good reason!! Lots of people have been requesting him as a slap for ages, and I finally got around to it. It shocks me that I've waited to long - he's beautiful!!

More Christiano Ronaldo

What's in his ears in those pictures??
FlashStash | 2011-05-09 21:51

He has his earings covered. He is so damn hot. Love to watch his moves on the pitch. He is the most exciting player out there right now not to mention the most delicious.

More Leandro Becker

Oh, there is a God! Thank you! Love me some Leandro.

Why you should support Microsoft
They're about to release the first gay operating system. I say it's about time - my hard drive has been needing some fun lately...

Slap! - Alexandre Despatie
Today's slap, by request of Jonathan, is Canadian Olympic diver Alexandre Despatie. What a stunning specimen, I must say - I can't believe I missed him last summer! Well, hopefully he'll make it to Beijing. Thanks, Jonathan!

More Alexandre Despatie

Every body admits that our life seems to be high priced, however we need cash for different things and not every person gets enough money. Hence to receive quick personal loans and short term loan should be good solution.
HANSONMarla18 | 2011-05-09 21:51

Thanks so much for bring my favorite neighbhor to the north on your site. But this is nothing. There are pictures of this kid that will blow your mind . He is packing some serious heat in his speedo. Check out to see some.
Jonathan | 2011-05-09 21:51

Slap! - Ivan Sergei
Today's slap, at the long-ago suggestion of Joey is Ivan Sergei. The only thing I remember about Ivan is his turn as the narcissistic gay boy in The Opposite of Sex. And I also remember thinking that I wanted to be as thin as he. Oh well... Nevertheless, here's Ivan. Thanks, Joey!

More Ivan Sergei

he's never had a very attractive face to me...

Slap! - Jason Statham
Cris comes through again with a pointer to Jason Statham. You remember him as the bad-guy hottie in Cellular. Now, he's no Chris Evans, but he's definitely HOT.

More Jason Statham

Ahh! I love him.... too bad the photo's don't really show how hot he is.
tim | 2011-05-09 21:51

yeah... he's way hot. i suggested him a little while ago as well. he was good in the Italian Job also.
dae | 2011-05-09 21:51

Slap of the Month - June!
Well, it's official, Chris Evans is June's Slap of the Month. He really didn't have any competition, but I was very pleased to see my little race-car-driving hottie get a few votes:

Christian Klien

But it was Chris - the actual recipient of my vote - that won quite handily.

Chris Evans

Hot protesters
BoiFromTroy has some pics of hot anti-abortion protesters at something-or-other in LA. Honestly, I read the whole article, but couldn't really focus on anything but the hottie at the bottom of the post. Wow - who knew protesters were so hot??

Slap! - Jarrod Batchelor
Today's slap, at the repeated insistence of Nick, is Mr. Gay UK 2003, Jarrod Batchelor. Sorry it took so long Nick, but I finally got it done! And thanks for persisting!

That site has a few selections that may be future slaps, too!

More Jarrod Batchelor

How about Terry Cleake on that website?
He's absolutely incredible!
Guardian | 2011-05-09 21:51

I think the eyebrow ring looks good on the more art-y guys, same with the ocasional earring. And I do think it enhances his already cute face, gives him a bit of an edge.

Tattos can be overdone, but when held back to something personal, it too can enhance a hot guy.
Tim | 2011-05-09 21:51

Super forehead/brows/eyes!
don | 2011-05-09 21:51

Jarrod batchelor is the sexiest man ever, he is utterly gorgeous and was such a cool guy on the games last year! cant wait to see him back on tv again, where has he gone?!?!!? tell him to get in touch!
John | 2011-05-09 21:51

Slap! - Eduardo Noriega
Today's slap, at the suggestion of Cris (love that spelling!), is Spanish actor Eduardo Noriega. I had never heard of Eduardo, but Chris points out that he's probably best known for creating Tom Cruise's role in Abre Los Ojos, the film on which Cruise based Vanilla Sky.

More Eduardo Noriega

Dios mio, beautiful face, beautiful body and enormous willy, what more could you ask?! :)
Jon | 2011-05-09 21:51

He also played a gay robber in the argentinian film "Burnt Money", alongside two other hot guys, one of which was his boyfriend. HOT movie, y'all.

It's Voting Time Again!
It's been a busy month - and there have been a fair few popular men. But, once again I'm limited to 20 entries in my voting poll. This time I eliminated the ones that got the fewest comments. One of these days I'll suck it up and write code that can handle more choices.

Anyway, here they are - the Bent Men of June. Let's hear it! And please leave a comment if your favorite isn't among the choices on the automatic thingy.

As for me? I'm voting for Chris Evans.

Random Guys

Sandra Day
As you may have heard, Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor is retiring. So far I've only heard gnashing of teeth from the gay community. She was, to be sure, a vote that was often "on our side". I thought I'd include here a link to Paul, over at Right Rainbow with a decidedly different perspective.

As for me, I can't help but like the outcome of many of her decisions, but I'm afraid that I may agree more with Paul that with others about her tenure.

That is total bunk. For people like Paul, the constitution has no flexibility. If you believe that, then you concede to the idea that gays will continue to be discriminated against indefinitely. I suspect that Paul is suffering from a bad case of Stokholm syndrome. Any gay person who supports Scalia or Thomas is supporting his own misery. As for O'Conner, she might have been "slightly" unpredictable, but for the most part she did the right thing, rather then sticking to what some old, pasty white men wrote 200 years ago. As far as I'm concerned, Paul can go screw himself.

Live 8
Tomorrow is the Live 8 concert. I'll admit that I have been paying very little (OK, none) attention to it. My friends know that I'm not the person to ask for information or advice on music - unless you want to know how to connect your computer to your home theater for playing MP3's.

Anyway, Chris over at Boy's Briefs has a few stern words for the hochos at MTV and VH1 regarding their programming schedule for Live 8. Specifically, the reunion of Pink Floyd and its former leader (and true artistic talent) Roger Waters.

All of this is news to me, but it's definitely exciting. As a freshman in college, I was lucky enough to see not one but two Pink Floyd shows (fun times, huh John?). And while they were fantastic, Waters' absence diminished the concert. And, of course, his leaving did nothing at all for their music, but that's another story. So the chance to see them perform, albeit on TV, with Roger Waters is amazing. So I'm setting my Replay - now I just have to figure out how to record 3 channels at once.

Oh, and I have to agree completely with Chris:
I'll be watching tomorrow. And if you don't broadcast Pink Floyd's entire performance, I swear to God I will hunt you down and I will kill you.
Given recent coverage of live events (like Wimbledon) by the major media recently, I'm not optimistic. In the meantime I'll be here listining to The Final Cut. Where the hell is my Dark Side of the Moon disc??

Slap! - Jason Patric
Today's slap is actor Jason Patric. He's not exactly furry, but hopefully he'll entertain those of you who like a little chest hair.

Anyway, if you're wondering, you may have seen him in the vampire flick The Lost Boys - you remember the teenage girl flick where he appeared with Corey Haim and Corey Feldman? And p.s., whatever happened to those two? Anyway, Jason was also in the perfectly dreadful Speed 2:Cruise Control. Research into Jason's other roles is left as an exercise to the reader.

More Jason Patric

always thought he was a looker; ever since Lost Boys. Love the ass shot!
dae | 2011-05-09 21:51

I have loved Jason since The Lost Boys! Yum yum.:-P
