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.

I personally am stunned that Survivor has lasted this long. I watched the first one, but couldn't imagine watching any more. Someone out there seems to like it, though. Anyway, if you're a fan, The Malcontent has a look at the most important thing about Survivor: Which of the contestants is gay? I'm rooting for Aras or Nick. Photos when they're available.

Slap of the Month!
You guessed it, it's voting time again! If you remember, the month started with an ill-fated attempt at a theme of winter athletes. That didn't work out, but I have a new theme coming up that should be better received for various reasons - among them that it will only be a week long, not a whole month. And I think most of you out there will enjoy it quite a bit more. Look for that on Monday - probably.

In the mean time, look into your hearts, read your tea leaves, gaze at your crystal (or other) balls - and then cast your vote! Me? I'm voting for John Driscoll. If you had asked me a week ago, I would have said that Jeremy Bloom had a lock on my vote, but seeing John in bed with Christian Campbell sent him right over the top! Or is he a bottom? Regardless, he's the man.

Mats Christeen! Listen, I got to be honest and say that I loved your theme of hot athletes. Especially the hockey players! Mats is one of the hottest guys alive. I did a lot of research on him and found loads of pix--all of which, were slappable! So, don't slap yourself around so much on a good idea! Taking risks is really important in life, and this was not that big of a risk! I loved it. I'm sure I'll love what ever you have in store next too. Just remember to include a hot hockey player or a baseball player with his cap on backwards every now and again. Thanks!

Slap! - David Sutcliffe
AGES ago. Yes, ages ago, Matt was kind enough to suggest actor David Sutcliffe, star of such things as Happy Endings and frequent guest star on Gilmore Girls. I can't say that I've ever noticed David on screen, so I'm assuming that's simply because I've never seen anything he was in - it's very hard for me to believe that I might have overlooked such a hottie, with his lovely fur in just the right quantities...

More David Sutcliffe

As you'll be able to tell on the next screen, "Dewey" gets the credit for a lot of these pics. He's always so helpful...

UPDATE: I think the movie where he's in bed with a guy is Happy Endings.

anonymous | 2011-05-09 21:51

Very handsome. Those shots of him in bed with Antonio Sabato Jr are from Testosterone, which may just be the worst gay-themed movie ever.

Slap! - John Driscoll
I know some were worried that I might neglect today's slap, but there was really no way - especially having seen him in this week's episode. So, the fourth - and final? - Slap from The Book of Daniel is gay choir boy John Driscoll. I have to admit, I was thrilled when NBC decided to make episodes available on the web - I was afraid I might not get to see John's character hook up with Christian's. Talk about hot. I nearly wet myself just thinking about it - I could have used a smooch, but seeing them in bed together with their shirts off was quite nice, and the shot of John's armpit was fantastic! To reiterate sound like a broken record, if you haven't watched the episode online yet, do it now.

If you want to see more of John, you can see him fairly regularly on Guiding Light, playing Henry Cooper Bradshaw #2. I may have a new show for the afternoons...

More John Driscoll

Also, I have a confession to make: I saw a couple of screen caps of the scene in bed online the other day, but I didn't grab them at the time. And now I can't find them... If I find them, I'll put them in.

Update: Whew! Jeff came through again - without me even asking he read my mind and knew that I wanted the pictures of John and Christian in bed together. You can see the caps he sent on the next page.

Wonderful! Is John "family"? I saw him on Martha and thought... without a doubt! Not that there is anything wrong with that. :-)

Slap! - Aidan Quinn
Rounding out the Book of Daniel slaps we have Adam and Peter's father, Aidan Quinn. Much to my husband's chagrin, we never got to see Aidan with his shirt off - which, honestly, was kinda strange, I mean he was in bed several times, and always with his shirt on?? Whatever.

Anyway, I do hope that the creators of the show can figure out how to get any un-aired episodes to us. DVD? iTunes? HBO? And I'd love to see them take a chance with new distribution methods and try to make the business of online distribution work - I don't know if it would, but it might be worth a shot.

Anyway, enjoy Aidan!

More Aidan Quinn

UPDATE: After I wrote this post I got the tip from Jeff about NBC making the un-aired episodes available on -- again, thanks to Jeff and the rest of my eagle-eyed readers for keeping me abreast of such things!!

Anyway, the more I think about it, the more I think that pulling the show was fundamentally a business decision -- perhaps the pressure from the bigot brigade made them pull the trigger early, but if the numbers didn't pick up, it would have been yanked anyway. Would the numbers have picked up if it stayed on the air? I guess that's the question, isn't it? Regardless, if the ratings had been good enough (think Desperate Housewives), NBC wouldn't have caved to any pressure. And I don't know if it's possible, but perhaps enough people will watch online that NBC will decide to resurrect production.

As for the question of "why the fuss?", I'd say "because the AFA made a fuss". There have been lots of good shows that were pulled for business reasons (Kitchen Confidential is a recent standout), but the bigots weren't making a fuss. With The Book of Daniel the religious right made a fuss, so we're fussing back.

So...if you've read this far, may I ask one more thing? Send an e-mail to Jeff Zucker (CEO) and/or Kevin Reilly (President) of NBC. And be nice -- don't rant and rave about censorship or caving in to extremist bigots -- just tell them nicely that you enjoyed the show and that you'd like to add your voice to those asking that they give the show another chance. (You can also sign an online petition -- thanks again, Jeff!) And regardless, thank them for making the rest of the episodes available on the web site. Even that seemingly small gesture is a big step for a company like NBC. Plus there's the old "flies and honey" saw.

Have I yapped enough? Yes. Now send the e-mail! And be sure to vote with your clicks by watching the rest of the episodes -- remember a new episode comes out each Friday and is available for the entire week!

kcoc"21 | 2011-05-09 21:51

I've always thought that Aidan was a hottie. I found it odd that he was playing Christian Campbell's father since they are only 13 years apart in age.

More hotties!
Jason, over at midnight lounge, has a new weekly feature with very hot guys from myspace. He's only had 2 so far, but I think he has a winner with michaelangelo.

Slap! - Amelie Mauresmo
We interrupt your regularly scheduled Slap programming to bring you this emergency slap. Amelie Mauresmo, the lesbian tennis star from France, is today's slap of the day.

Amelie won the Australian Open last night in a victory over Justine Henin-Hardenne - Amelie's first win in a grand slam tournament. It was tainted, however, by Justine retiring due to some purported stomach ailment. Whatever - it's a grand slam final - Amelie's first - I think Justine could have stuck with it a bit longer. So, in my opinion (and I've thought this for a long time)
is a
fucking cunt!!
There. That feels better.

We'll return to regular Slap programming tomorrow.

UPDATE: I guess I should explain my rant about Justine. I remember an incident with Justine and Serena Williams a year or two ago, where Justine simply didn't act like a true sportsman -- she wasn't cheating, just, frankly, being a bitch. And I got the impression in this match that she thought "I'm not going to win anyway, and my stomach hurts a bit, why should I stick around?" I just don't think that's the appropriate attitude for a grand slam final. And she really does seem like a bitch.

actually she lost the 1999 aus open to hingus...but good on her she a confirmed lesbo, or is it just the obviousness we're going on?
cozzmuffler | 2011-05-09 21:51

Truly one of the most masculine slaps you have ever posted....KIDDING!
Doug | 2011-05-09 21:51

She is a confirmed lesbian and comments were rampant during a previous slam tournament when her girlfriend was in the stands and Hingus made a very insensative comment regarding it.
And yes, she is the most masculine slap I have ever seen on this site, which reminds me...
Congrats to Amelie. Will be seeing her in March in Indian Wells.

Daniel update!
Jeff was kind enough to write and point out that NBC is making the un-aired episodes of The Book of Daniel available on its web site, starting tonight. One will be available every week, starting on Friday.

The web site shows the episode in a small window, but if you want to watch it larger you can follow these steps:

1) Right-click on the video as it's playing and choose "Properties"

2) Copy the "Location" value in the Properties dialog

3) Open Windows Media Player

4) In the WMP File menu, choose "Open URL" and paste the value from the location property.

Oh, I watched the episode posted tonight and
[SPOILER]I'm glad to report that Peter (the gay son) and the other hottie (David) hook up. Woohoo![/SPOILER]

And finally, kudos to NBC for making these episodes available!

UPDATE: Jeff pointed out that I forgot to mention that each episode will be available for the whole week - until the next episode is released. Thanks Jeff!

Does anyone know how to save the file?

Slap! - Ivan Shaw
Day 2 of The Book of Daniel slaps brings us Ivan Shaw who, coincidentally, was in All My Children Too. Ivan played the frisky adopted son "Adam" in Book of Daniel, and while his portrayal seemed a bit over the top, it was entertaining.

More Ivan Shaw

Thanks again to Dreamcaps for the skin pics!

Pretty hot - too bad I missed the show entirely!
whatever | 2011-05-09 21:51

Here's an interesting side note: On AMC, Shaw's character (Henry) lost his girlfriend to another girl. In fact, his girlfriend, Maggie, went on to become part of this sort of odd supercouple, Bianca and Maggie. There's this whole, huge group of people devoted to the couple (they call themselves BAM - for Bianca and Maggie, or BAMers). They remain devoted despite the fact that the couple are no longer on the show (they left to live the gay life in Paris).

Two weeks ago was Aspen's Winterskol festival. Part of the festival was the Bud Light Big Air Contest. I went along and grabbed some pics -- as you can see it was SNOWING that day.

Tomorrow's the beginning of the Winter X-Games - I'll post pics when I have 'em.

More Winterskol

I wish I had a picture...
... or a video. I saw the funniest thing today.

I was doing some work at a house, and while I was in the back yard the two (crazy) dogs came flying around the corner looking ready to attack me. I braced myself to be devoured, but I was fortunate that they were very friendly - within 30 seconds I had a tennis ball deposited at my feet and a very hopeful look on the mug of the guilty canine. The dog I had as a kid was similarly enthusiastic about a tennis ball, so I had some fun and threw the ball a few times. Who, after all, could resist?

All of the throws proceeded without incident until the last. As I prepared to leave, I threw the ball across the yard one last time. One of the dogs, frantic to keep the ball from the other, made an attempt at a diving catch and ended up sliding on the snow and ice in the yard. Directly into the fence. At what seemed like 100 mph. All I heard was the crash - I looked up to see three pieces of the fence missing and a dog in the front yard. He had crashed right through the wooden fence, taking part of the it with him. Talk about dedication. But the look on his face was absolutely priceless - I don't think he could believe it either.

Like I said, I wish I had a camera.

And, as you might have guessed, since it came apart so easily, the fence went back together easily too. Whew!

I'm gonna call PETA on you. Does sound like Molly though. She would have been OK with having her face smashed in, as long as she got the ball.

Speaking of The Book of Daniel
As for Book of Daniel, I don't know about the rest of you, but I was kind of enjoying the show, independent of Christian. The first episode started off kinda ham-handed, but I think it was developing well.

From what I've read, NBC isn't pulling it as a direct result of the bigot brigade's letter-writing campaign, but simply for low ratings -- the the wackos and their noise contribute? Maybe? Probably? Who knows, maybe they'll release the balance of the season on iTunes? A guy can dream...

In reading the NBC message boards I came across this post by Jack Kenny, the show's creator (the first part is quoting a post by a "Christian"):
QUOTE - Jack,
Really glad to hear that NBC has cancelled this program. While I'm not a religious right-winger, I appreciate the awesome way pro-family people got involved. This show was pure fantasy, nowhere near where average families are by any stretch of the imagination. Adios, Book of Daniel! END QUOTE

What a lovely, kind thought, to go out of your way to pour salt into a wound that you know is aching... That, more than any other action your people have taken, shows the true nature of this small group of bigots who "call" themselves Christians... Or shall we say, faux-Christians... You claim to be loving, forgiving, tolerant - the values of the Lord... and yet all you really are is spiteful, gloating, and vicious... what would Jesus do, indeed? My Jesus would be saddened by your actions and words. I hope that when your day of judgement arrives, you are treated with more charity than that.
I think he nailed it, myself.

UPDATE: In case you missed it, mark posted a link in the comments to actor John Driscoll's thoughts about the cancellation on his blog. John played the gay choir boy who it seemed was gonna hook up with Peter.

Oh, and there will be four days of BoD slaps - John's included too. YUM.

My only concern regarding this show being cancelled is that now the religious right wingers will "believe" they were the ones that sealed the shows fate. If this should be true watch out because they will be on the band wagon to shut down other popular shows in the future!
Mike | 2011-05-09 21:51

Kudos to Jack for replying in an honest, forthright manner. It always amazes me that people can be so zealous in their beliefs that they don't even hear what they are saying or stop to consider how it sounds. And for the record, I don't think anyone involved with the show ever said the clan portrayed on Book Of Daniel was supposed to be a "realistic" clan. Thankfully, I'm not overly concerned about these folks taking over the airwaves. As a close follower of the ratings and what impacts them, I don't believe that their protests had much to do with the situation. Heck, if these groups were that powerful, I have to think that shows such as Will & Grace or Desperate Housewives would have been yanked off the airwaves long ago. In the end, for better or worse, whatever draws a large number of people to the television stays on the television. What doesn't, doesn't. Personally, I like living in a world where people can watch Fear Factor if they so choose, despite the fact that I find it appalling. Wow... okay, I'm done. Now, back to the naked guys...
passionsfan | 2011-05-09 21:51

It really sucks that they not only cancelled the book of daniel but that they are also not going to air the remainder of the episodes.

The show was refreshing and entertaining and showed a truly diverse group of people...much like the world itself. I guess people don't like to see how the world really is.

Slap! - Christian Campbell
Today, in honor of its cancellation, I'm going to begin 3 days of Book of Daniel slaps. Don't worry - Aidan Quinn is involved for those of you who like your guys less twinkish -- hell, even my husband likes Aidan. But today's slap is Christian Campbell, who played the gay son Peter. I remember first seeing him as a shy cutie in Trick; he was also in All My Children for a while.

I have to confess that I'm a bit disappointed that some of Christian's pictures show him with what looks like a nice little patch of fur on his chest that he seems to have shaved it for Book of Daniel. I know, I know -- he was playing an 18 year old (19?), but I seem to remember having chest hair at 19...

Thanks to the good folks over at Dreamcaps for some of the pics!

Slap! - Sebastian Spence
Sorry for the late slap today, but as you can tell from my last post, Comcast still has its head very firmly up its corporate ass. AUGH. So I kinda had to throw this one together. Anyway, I ended up watching a couple of episodes of First Wave (god help me!) today, starring Canadian actor Sebastian Spence today, and while the show isn't very good - and the acting is worse - Sebastian definitely looks good. And at least in a couple of episodes he shows some nice skin. So check him out and we'll see if Comcast comes through on its promise of restored access by tomorrow afternoon.

He has also looked good in Third Man Out in which he was playing gay.

Augh! Sorry for the Slap-less day, but my internet has been down for over 24 hours. And it's not predicted to return until Wednesday. WEDNESDAY!!! Some stupid train operator crashed and cut a fiber optic cable near Denver, so anyone who uses Comcast and lives in the mountains of Colorado is SCREWED.

Anyway, I'm returning to Denver in the morning, so I should be able to post a slap then. Stay tuned!

What a horrible day with my SLAP! Only had the guys at work to look at. Horrible day!

Slap! - Brian McFadden
In my search for a bit more fur, I offer today's slap - former Westlife singer Brian McFadden. Funny, he just looks a bit too hairy to be part of a band that sounds like that - maybe that's why he got booted out?

Anyway, he's a bit too furry for my tastes, but I know there are at least a few people around here that will enjoy some fur -- and some, like my husband, want fur and a bit more heft -- so check him out!

More Brian McFadden

I'll take his armpit anyday!!!!

Slap! - Carlos Ponce
Today's slap, as suggested by Mark (I think -- it's a long story) is Puerto Rican singer & actor Carlos Ponce. Currently, Carlos can most often be seen on Entertainment Tonight, although it looks like he has a fairly prominent role in the upcoming Meet Me in Miami.

I don't watch ET and haven't seen any of his movies, so I don't know how he comes across on screen, but his still pics look VERY nice, I think.

More Carlos Ponce

One of the better ones of late. At least he has SOME hair on his chest - not much, but better than all those skater boys and twinks of late. Ditch that crowd a.s.a.p.

Slap! - Jay Hernandez
At Jonathan's repeated insistence, today's Slap is actor Jay Hernandez, currently starring in Hostel where you can see him partially clothed - I hear he's not naked, but I'll take any skin I can get. I haven't seen the movie yet, but one of these days I'm gonna get there... It sounds a bit creepy, but I dunno - I've always had a thing for horror movies, and this sounds especially greusome.

More Jay Hernandez

Me loves that Jay Hernandez! Thanks for giving him a good slap, though I was a bit disappointed you didn't have a better selection of pics.

New word?
I don't know if linking to Joe's post about the word Angertwink will help get it into the Urban Dictionary or not, but I figure I might as well try...

I guess they'll be shutting down their websites?
Apparently, a church in Washington is calling for a nationwide boycott of Microsoft over its support of gay rights. Well, since IBM, Apple and others also support gay rights, I'm not sure there's anywhere these people can go to get "safe" software. So I'm hoping that the AFA (sorry, I refuse to link to them) and all the other wackos join the boycott and take down their web sites.

Can I get an "amen" brother?

Slap! - Tommy Haas
Tennis player Tommy Haas isn't what you'd traditionally call a "winter athlete", but he's busy in Australia, having had a good start against Frenchman Richard Gasquet (also a hottie!) in the Australian Open. But seeing him with his new short hair - . He's always had a spectacular body, but the nasty pony tail was such a turn off. And thanks to JohnnyKeats at famousmales for putting together a nice collection.

More Tommy Haas

Yeha, what a difference a (lack of a) ponytail makes - he looks a bit like a beefier Tim Henman. Still, I'm afraid no one comes close to Mr Andy Roddick...

SLAP! - Brandon Davidson
As my first guest slap of 2006 I wanted to make sure you all know who Brandon Davidson is. Although he is best known as being a contestant on the Amazing Race with his religi-freak girlfriend, Niki, he is also a model. This guy is just incredible. He has the hottest, smoothest surfer body around and an amazing crop of curly wild blonde hair. Now if only we could get him out of those pesky clothes...

More Brandon Davidson

Is it possible to be "too pretty"?
myackie | 2011-05-09 21:51

Doug | 2011-05-09 21:51

You know, I've often been called "too pretty." Oh, wait, maybe it was my sister, and she was told, "Well, you're pretty, too." I remember watching Brandon on Amazing Race and anticipating events where he'd wind up shirtless...

Well, Jerry Falwell and the rest of the bigot brigade notwithstanding, someone somewhere likes gay people. Every year during Gay Ski Week Aspen has some the best conditions of the season. And last night we were treated to a beautiful 10" of snow in celebration of opening day!

I refuse to be the first person to comment on the 10 inches... oh, crap, I just did...

Slap! - Thomas Rupprath
Don, who is, I think, my most prolific contributor, sent along the suggestion for today's slap, German swimmer Thomas Rupprath. I can't tell you much about Thomas, but I do find him MUCH hotter than former slap Michael Phelps. He's just so ....... slappable.

I have a bunch of other pics from Don that I need to clear out of my inbox. Soon! Thanks Don!!

Thanks for re-thinking your theme based slaps.... I likey Tommy.

Goings on
Today was the first official day of Gay Ski Week 2006 here in Aspen. We've got a bunch of people arriving over the course of the week - why aren't you coming?? - including my brother-in-law Joe tomorrow and a large crowd on Wednesday.

My favorite events of the week are the "Downhill Costume Competition" and "Battle of Sexual Preferences III: Gay vs. Straight Ice Hockey Championship". I'll try to post pictures of these and other fun stuff throughout the week.

Some time before, I really needed to buy a building for my business but I didn't earn enough cash and couldn't buy something. Thank God my brother proposed to try to take the home loans from trustworthy bank. Therefore, I acted so and was happy with my bank loan.

Book of Daniel
News came on Friday that another station has pulled The Book of Daniel, NBC's mid-season debut starring Aidan Quinn. That brings the total to seven affiliates refusing to air the series.

Is anyone else watching? I had planned on watching prior to the controversey, but all of this foolishness only makes me want to stick with it. I found the pilot rather ham-handed (even though the cute guy quotient is high), but decided to persevere on the theory that if it pisses off the religious right so much, it must be good.

With that said, keep your eyes peeled for upcoming BoD slaps!

I finally got around the watching it. Its ok. To many plots going at once. Wouldn't mind if the one son got as much action as his man whore brother.
Richard | 2011-05-09 21:51

Okay, I haven't actually seen Book Of Daniel yet, but one BOD definitely worth slapping is John Driscoll. I think he plays the son of Ellen Burstyn, if I'm not mistaken. I know him from his work on GUIDING LIGHT, where he plays Henry "Coop" Cooper Bradshaw. Google him and you should find some really hot pics... he's a keeper.
passionsfan | 2011-05-09 21:51

ditto on John Driscoll. He's got a puppy dog face and a killer body. Slap him, and slap him hard!
Spike | 2011-05-09 21:51

Tennis season!
Watching the Australian Open on ESPN, I just saw former slap Robby Ginepri being interviewed and was reminded of just how cute he is. He has a great smile!!

As a relative newcomer, I'm lovin' the occasional "slapback" as I've come to consider the links to archives. And this one... hello, I'll take it. No need to wrap, thanks. I'm guessing I'm not the only one who has dirty, dirty thoughts about the whole "hand in the pocket" thing... (lucky damn hand!)
passionsfan | 2011-05-09 21:51

A good cause?
Via Tottyworld comes the latest "sell pixels on your home page" gimmick - Strip the Student. Daniel is a student and isn't looking forward to the prospect of graduating with mountains of student debt, so he's selling a naked picture of himself - 100 pixels at a time. And he says that any amounts received in excess of his eventual student debt will be donated to charity.

Hmmm. I have to admit I'm curious to see Daniel naked (he looks kinda cute), but I'm just not sure I can bring myself to contribute. Of course, if I thought people would pay me, I'd gladly sell a picture of myself...

You know what, I give the kid credit for not only ingenuity (although it might not truly be ingenious, as he freely admits to ripping someone off) but, more importantly, a sense of humor. I mean, that is hysterical! I kinda doubt he's going to make much money off it... I mean, there are a lot of cute guys out there ready, willing and able to expose themselves for free...
passionsfan | 2011-05-09 21:51

Slap! - Mark Feuerstein
OK, I've decided to re-work the themes, and that's gonna take a bit, so in the meantime I'll just be back to "regular" slaps.

So, with that in mind, today's slap is actor Mark Feuerstein. Mark has been in any number of shows, on any number of networks, but he never seems to find a show that has any longevity. It's too bad, because Mark is so cute - and I love the way he doesn't seem self-conscious about the perfect smattering of fur on his chest.


More Mark Feuerstein

Mark is hot. He is so much better than those skater twinks that have been posted. Finally a man with a man's body. I have a question though, what movie did those pictures come from where he is kissing another guy?
Paul B. | 2011-05-09 21:51

Slap! - Steven Cousins
Today, at Barry's suggestion, I'm targeting figure skater Steven Cousins. As Barry noted, Steven is hairier than your average figure skater, but also seems to take his shirt off more than the average figure skater, so that's a nice bonus.

As for the voting, I'm still trying to decide what to do. I like Gemini6ice's suggestion, and I've kinda been doing that for Feb, so themes may still survive! I am going to try to get more variety in here, though, so I'll be combing all of my e-mails to see if I can ferret out some of your good ideas.

Anyway, enjoy Steven!

More Steven Cousins

UPDATE: D'oh! Doug's comment points out something that I should mention again. I always try to credit people who have suggested Slaps, but I get so many (over 500 in my backlog as of today) that sometimes I miss someone. Sorry Doug! And anyone else I miss or ever have missed...

Sigh...I told you about Steven in an email when you solicited Olympic stars. Glad you got to Slap for John Zimmerman :)

Slap! - Jeremy Bloom
You knew he was coming. The hottest winter athlete EVER. Yes, ever. No arguing! Yes boys and girls, it's Jeremy Bloom - heck he was a real contender for Slap of the Year, there's no way I could leave him out of this theme, even if I do ditch it. So enjoy another look at Jeremy's (near) perfection. And keep an eye out for Jeremy in Italy in February - it'll be one of his last trips to the slopes before he enters the NFL Draft.

More Jeremy Bloom

Pardon the mathematical analogy, but consider a graph with 3 axes, X, Y, and Z. X is physical beauty, Y is athletic ability, and Z is masculine/hunk appeal. Jeremy is (literally) off the charts on all 3 axes. In math, it's called infinity. He is absolute perfection.

Note: that's why (I'm proud to say) I voted for him for slap of the year!

My first (real) hate mail!
I can't believe it! I got my first real hate mail today. I mean, I've gotten notes from people irritated with twinks or fur or whatever, but never just a simple
I hate you
like I got from petia. Now I don't know why petia hates me (or even if any of petia's information is real), but I'm kinda hoping that it's because of the gay theme of this site. I mean here I am, breaking my neck every day to piss off the religious right, and they can't even bother to tell me I'm going to hell! WTF?

Regardless, I hope he/she gets deluged with spam.

I certainly appreciate what you do and never miss checking here at least once a day, and usually more often. Sadly enough, there always are those who are so shallow of spirit they can only comprehend negative feelings and clutch them to thier meager breasts. Please console yourself in the knowledge that they will live miserable lives feeling bad about themselves and trying to drag others down to their level. What you do is wonderful and brings great pleasure to many men.

OK, I've been doing this theme stuff for a couple weeks, and I gotta admit - it's kinda bugging me. I continue to see hot guys around that I want to slap, but the theme and blah blah blah. So I'm gonna ask you what you think. Should I continue with the themes? I know, I hate to drop the weight of the world on your shoulders, but let me know what you think!

Oh and now you anti-democratic people out there can't cheat!

UPDATE: Er... I realized I may not have phrased the question correctly. It should be:
Should I ditch the themes?

Yes - I'm sick of all these pasty twinks!
No! I love all these pasty twinks!
Whatever, dude, just keep the hot guys coming
You're going to hell anyway, who cares?

Slap! - Sidney Crosby
Today's slap is Pittsburgh Penguin Center Sidney Crosby. The eighteen year old (!!) was born in Canada, and played for the Canadian Junior Hockey Team before entering the 2005 NHL draft where he was the first overall pick. Wayne Gretzky called him "the best player I've seen since Mario (Lemieux)." Nice. Personally, I think Sidney has a chance to be the first overall pick for Slap of the Month in January...

We interrupt your regularly scheduled Slapping to bring you an emergency announcement. As Andy noted, actor Will Toale has been selected to play Aquaman in the new WB series of the same name. Nice! Maybe Superman and Aquaman can have a fling...

Technically, the series has only been ordered to pilot and could still get booted, but hopefully Will makes a good impression!

I'm sure I'll be the lone voice of discontent on this one (then again, I'm used to that), but there's something about Will's face that just doesn't do it for me. That said, I'm sure he'll be perfect as Aquaman because, well, his face does have a certain fish-like quality to it. I hope this boy can act, because otherwise, watching him frolic around half-naked in the surf is going to get kinda boring after a thousand episodes or so.

Slap! - Mats Christeen
Today we take a look at Swedish hockey star Mats Christeen. I should actually clarify that -- Mats is Swedish, but he skates for Nashville (Nashville has a hockey team??). As an aside, I wish he'd skate in some of the outfits you'll see on the next page - I'm not so much a hockey fan, but that would certainly glue me to the TV!! I couldn't figure out of Mats will be in this year's Olympic Games, but here's hoping!!

Today's slap is he of "dinner roll" fame, US skier Jonny Moseley. Jonny first came to my attention in 1998 in Nagano after winning the gold medal in the moguls competition. Then in 2002 in Salt Lake he did his famous dinner roll jump - and while he didn't win the gold that year, he certainly won a place on this site!! I was only able to round up a couple of shirtless pics of Jonny, but the ones I did find are pretty good, so enjoy!!

More Jonny Moseley

Houses and cars are expensive and not everybody can buy it. Nevertheless, credit loans was invented to aid different people in such kind of situations.

I started crushing on him when he hosted one of those MTV specials(Real Rules/Road World something?--yes I deliberately turned the titles around)--he is a cutie, and I'd drink hot chocolate by the fire with him anytime.

Oh, to have hair like that. Wait. What's wrong with me that I'm focusing on the hair...:)

Slap! - Apolo Ohno
AUGH! Someone (maybe more than one person) wrote to suggest today's slap. But because I have a very crappy e-mail search application (and I hereby join the chorus of people calling for MS to implement a decent one in Outlook), I can't find who it was. So if it was you, let me know and I'll give you credit...

So anyway, Apolo Ohno is our victim today. Apolo has always looked kinda funny to me, but there's something so - well - slappable about him. And hell, those legs!! LEGS!!! Anyway, this gold medal-winning US speed skater will be competing in Torino next month, so be sure to catch him on TV! Since he's American and a favorite, it should be difficult (at least in the US) to see anyone else.

More Apolo Ohno

I think his last name really sums it up...Oh No. I hope he does well in the Winter Games...but as far as the Slap Games go, I'd say Ohno gold, Ohno silver, Ohno bronze...maybe Ohyes honorable mention!
kevin | 2011-05-09 21:51

OHNO! He is kinda skanky....I agree he has great legs....but he does NOTHING for me. Stick to the figure skaters...LOL
Doug | 2011-05-09 21:51

man he's ugly! Gonna need a few bull-blasters to be able hit that!
dae | 2011-05-09 21:51

Oh my god, he's offense but only HOT HOT guys, hopefull totaly nude and sweaty should be slapped! Bring back guys so hot you zipper comes apart.

Slap! - Stephane Lambiel
Continuing with the figure skaters, today's slap - as recommended by Tommy and Labratt - is Swiss skater Stephane Lambiel. I have to admit that I've never seen Stephane before, but I usually watch figure skating only during the Olympics. I'm definitely looking forward to seeing him on the ice in Torino!

More Stephane Lambiel

YAWN! Work on that triple-axel, dude.
Besides, Timothy Goebel is SO much cuter.

Very Nice Indeed! Makes me want to dabble in neutrality.

Slap! - Alexei Yagudin
Another figure skater - this time Russian - is today's slap. Alexei Yagudin is the one who put on the strip tease show at the Olympics in Salt Lake City. Geez - I nearly fell right off my chair. Alexei is one of those guys, however, who look great in some shots and gross in others. Hopefully some of my selections stand out as the former.

More Alexei Yagudin

Update: Great minds think alike! Geo wrote to suggest Alexei just as I was putting the finishing touches on this post. Nice!

Nope doesn't do it for me. Nice bod, but that face - yikes! Some chest hair would help...
anonymous | 2011-05-09 21:51

anonymous | 2011-05-09 21:51

Great skater, but not sexy at all. Not worthy of a slap, IMHO.

Slap of the Year - Readers' Choice!
Well, the voting seems to indicate that David Beckham is the winner of Slap of the Year.

I'm suspicious, because the results look like they were tampered with, but Mr. Poll doesn't allow much control over restricting multiple votes. I'm tempted to do a re-vote, but ugh...

The next vote will be restricted - even if I allow more than one vote per person, there won't be such obvious tampering.

yeah it stinks of tampering.... what a let down. although he is hot i dont really see how he could win over the others.
tim | 2011-05-09 21:51

i agree, i don't see how he could have won!
dae | 2011-05-09 21:51

So, who was the runner-up? Recognition for that man might be a way of giving a hats off to Beckham (in case the vote is legit) while giving a slap to the guy who should have won (in case the vote was tampered, which I'm not saying was the case.) Damn, if I knew I could have voted multiple times...
bottomguy | 2011-05-09 21:51

Becks is a hottie, you know Elton John and his new husband have had some fun with this "meterosexual", I mean I love the tatoo over his ass, and I am sure other men have seem it the way it was made to be seen, in bed and wiggling for attention!
Sorry about the voting discrepancies, but David Beckham is the most popular athlete in the world, maybe the world dropped by the SLAP and voted???

Slap! - Brian Joubert
French figure skater Brian Joubert is the first victim in January's slap theme. According to his website, we'll be seeing Brian in Torino in February. I can't wait - I'm just hoping he gives a performance like Russian skater Alexei Yagudin gave in Salt Lake City.

And remember! Keep the suggestions coming!

More Brian Joubert

i completely agree Kevin!!!
dae | 2011-05-09 21:51

thanks dae....long time, no read...
happy new year...I can't wait for the games to begin, few things better then a speedskater, stretching out those skin tight kits they wear!!
Except for the swimmers/divers in the summer Olympics!!!

Slap of the Year voting
I'm going to cut off voting for Slap of the Year tomorrow at the end of the day, Mountain Time. I know a bunch of people access the site from work and don't want to deprive them of the opportunity to vote... Haha. So if you haven't voted, vote now. If you have, DON'T VOTE AGAIN!! And to the person stuffing the ballot box: You made me break down and write my own voting code to limit votes to one per person.

How about Eric Heidan from ?1980; speedskater with thighs of death.
And there's always Alberto Tomba, skier from Italy.
anonymous | 2011-05-09 21:51

LoL ~ I met Alberto Tomba at the Albertville Olympics back in 92 and he was such a big, loud kinda gross dude...I would've slept with him, thou!! ;-p
Franzel | 2011-05-09 21:51

Slap! - Shemar Moore
Hans wrote to suggest today's Slap, and I think Shemar Moore is an excellent choice because he's hot and because he adds variety that I need around here...

So I can't say that I've ever seen Shemar around anywhere (I don't watch The Young and the Restless), but I've heard that Criminal Minds is pretty good, so I may be seeing more of him.

More Shemar Moore

He is one fine, fly-ass motha fucka

Bent themes!!
OK, having spent a year slapping anything that moves (!), I'm retooling a bit. I don't know if it will work, but I'm going to TRY to do themes. So, with that in mind, the rest of January is Olympic Athlete month - preferably winter athletes, but I'll take summer ones if I have to. The first two days of Jan are already screwed up (I don't have the energy to fix tomorrow's post), but I'll bet you can guess who's on tap for Tuesday.

So let's have some suggestions! Oh, and they don't necessarily have to be competing in this year's Winter Olympics. So, if you're so inclined, Brian Boitano would be a good suggestion. He might not get included, but he'd be a good suggestion.

Blaine Wilson...gymnast in the summer olympics but hey why not.

Damn any guy gymnast from Romania will do.
Lo | 2011-05-09 21:51

How about the UK's Craig Heap? A few shots of this blond muscleboy would be nice...
GymFan | 2011-05-09 21:51

Okay...I didn't ant to just throw in any names here, so I actually did some research. I found Chad Hedrich and Casey FitzRandolph, two HOTTIE speedskaters!!!
I am sure I could give their thighs a great massage, while I have their legs in the air!!!
kevin | 2011-05-09 21:51

You can't get any better than Apolo Ohno - he really deserves a slap!

Sorry for the up-and-down behavior of the site today. I've been doing some maintenance tasks, including a code upgrade and a database upgrade, and it hasn't been quite as smooth as I'd have liked. Regardless, it's mostly done so it should behave well for the rest of the day...

Slap of the Year - Editor's Choice - Jamie Bamber
Because I knew he couldn't win the voting (and WHO is voting for Simon Rex??), I had to give Jamie Bamber the Editor's Choice Slap of the Year award. Jamie is just so perfect in every way -- the only thing that Simon has on him is that porn video. Oh dear god, to see Jamie doing that.

And, in case you're interested (I know Kevin is...), Jamie starts again in Battlestar Galactica on Friday! Set your TiVos!!!

So in honor of Jamie's win, I collected every picture I could find of him into one place:

More Jamie Bamber

UPDATE: As a commenter noted, the season preview seems to indicate that we will, in fact, be Jamie skin again this season. Maybe they realize that they have a big gay following...

UPDATE 2: Bsabas wrote to point me to a picture of Jamie that I didn't have in my collection - of Jamie's butt! So naturally, you can now find it in the "more" post. Enjoy! And thanks Bsabas!!

Hooray for editorial control. Jamie! Jamie! Jamie! Let's hope for more towel acts in 2006.
Fritz | 2011-05-09 21:51

how hot!
Rus | 2011-05-09 21:51

Great as Jamie Bamber is, I'd have liked to have seen acknowledged someone who has taken off his shirt more than once. With so many choices who have shown a comittment to whipping off their shirts on a regular basis or those like Simon Rex, Josh Duhammel, etc., who have bared all for the advancement of their careers to our entertainment and delight, it seems his solo appearance, no matter how spectacular, is only an indication of what he could actually contribute. Let's hope he does while he can.
fareva | 2011-05-09 21:51

Yeah! Jamie is by far the nicest one on the list. If you had put his picture at top, I'm sure he'd have won anyway. The voting is always skewed toward high-listed names anyway. :-)

January 6: new season of BSG. More skin? Stay tuned...

Slap! - Matthew Lawrence
The first Slap of 2006 goes to actor Matthew Lawrence. Some have suggested Matthew's older brother Joe (of Blossom fame), but I think Matthew is SO much hotter!! So Joey may - some day - make it here, but not today...

Anyway, Matthew has been in tons of movies & TV, but nothing terribly momentous. That's OK - enjoy him anyway!

More Matthew Lawrence

Matthew is cute but Joe Is HOT HOT HOT - great face, incredible body and body Hair YUMMMMMMMM Please feature Joe
marvin | 2011-05-09 21:51

excellent choice ... i much prefer matthew over joey
marc | 2011-05-09 21:51

While our tastes seem to be the same, especially regarding Jaime "the banger" Bamber...I have disagree with matthew...ewwwww
Joey is the hottie, especially since he's grown up and really looks like a man. I can just picture him all butched up and being w great lil' buttom boy for me!!!
Maybe Joey and Jaime could do towel scenes on BSG???

Slap of the Year!!
Holy Baby New Year, Batman! What a group of hotties this is!! Normally I only post voting pics for the hottest guys, but as you can see I posted pics for ALL of these guys. YUM YUM YUM. As for me, you know who I voted for -- more on that later. It's hard for me to believe that it's been an entire year (actually, well over a year) that I've been slapping guys - and thanks to everyone who made excellent suggestions!! I'm sorry if I didn't get your suggestion included, I'm going to try to get them in soon! (No comments from the peanut gallery, please!) As for predictions? Personally, I'd really like to vote for all of them, but what can you do?

Oh, and sorry for the shortened voting on December Slap of the Month -- Simon Rex is the winner -- but I wanted to get this post written before dinner -- my husband is making tacos! And then we're going to watch the snow, and, if we're lucky, our cute neighbor in the hot tub!! Woohoo! (Yes, we really cut loose on New Year's Eve around here...)

UPDATE: Hmmm. I'm not sure if Simon Rex was ever actually leading, but some people seem to have strong feelings about that... Anyway, Ryan Carnes is leading now -- a much better choice, if you ask me. I will admit that I'm kinda surprised that Josh Duhamel hasn't gotten a single vote.

UPDATE 2: And Jeremy Bloom hasn't gotten a single vote either?? Maybe changing the order will help those two...

UPDATE 3: Breaking news - Brodie Croyle has pulled into a very solid lead. I hope nobody is tampering with the votes! Regardless, BoiFromTroy will be pleased.

UPDATE 4: After investigating, I think someone is indeed stacking the votes and moving Brodie to the top. MisterPoll is designed to limit the number of votes that a person casts, but there are ways around it, unfortunately. I may have to switch to another poll hoster. Hmmm...

Cast your vote now for the hottest guy in 2005!!

Josh Duhamel

Jeremy Bloom

Raoul Bova

David Beckham

Ryan Carnes

Rafael Verga

Chris Evans

Rob Hoffman

Jamie Bamber

Nick Beyeler

Sean Faris

James Marsden

James Franco

Ryan Reynolds

James Storey

Brent van Zandt

Ian Somerhalder

Josh Wald

Jeff Wilson

Simon Rex

Kerr Smith

The Carlson Twins

Brodie Croyle

Tom Welling

Brandon Cox

James Purefoy

Wentworth Miller

Gael Garcia Bernal

Rusty Joiner

Simon Rex is leading the voting? What the heck? No way is he the Slap of the Year or month for that matter. Sorry - JMO.

Ok that top three is not a top three. Nice but not WOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. Ryan Reynalds people yumm!!!!!!!

I voted for Jeremy Bloom. You can't ask for a better combination...Someone who runs a 4.3, slips through moguls with ease and a body that won't quit. He's a stud.

Ok, regarding Sean Faris - he looks like a lovechild of Gabriella Sabatini and Kristi McNichol! Can you be pre-op at that age??
