It's Time Again For The Herndon Climb: PHOTOS

2013 HERNDON FIRST-16

BY SAM GREISMAN

Well, it's the time again for the sexiest and possibly the most homoerotic tradition that happens at the Naval Academy in Annapolis. In case you don't know, every May the upperclassmen grease up the Herndon Monument and shirtless plebes struggle and flex their way up it as they progress to midshipmen.

Much more, AFTER THE JUMP...

This grouping of greasy photos comes courtesy of Washington, DC-based photographer Scott Henrichsen whose physique work can be found here. Also check out scottfoto.com for his commercial work. 

Feel free to revisit past Herndon climbs, here, here, and here.

  5. Get those women out of there! :D

  6. OK, this is a serious question.

    Do these young men shave or wax their public areas?
    And if they do, is that considered acceptable in macho-land now?

    I see these hairless alien-like creatures on Craigslist and wonder if this gets stares at the gym these days.

    How about military locker rooms? Do landing strips and waxed dongs just pass unnoticed?

  7. Straight guys seem to spend a lot more time naked together than gay men ever do.

  8. Made me stand up and salute.

  10. What The MIlkman said . . . :-)

  11. I don't get it. What could possibly be homoerotic about a group of wet, half-naked, buff young men pressing their bodies together in order to climb on top of a huge, lubed-up phallic symbol?

  12. Yes, David, among young men, both gay and straight, hairless is increasingly popular. A family member recently graduated from the Marine Corps basic training at Parris Island and he said some of the guys still took the time to shave their pubes in the shower. I'm not sure why, considering they aren't going to be having sex for 14 weeks...

    Luckily it seems to be something that guys grow out of. Once they're in their late 20s/early 30s most won't bother with it anymore. Until then, I can still appreciate a toned, handsome guy when I see one.

  13. which are they gay ones?

  14. In the interests of science and natural selection I have studied these pics a few times.
    Conclusion:
    American boys are hairless....and not just a few, all of them.
    Is this phenomenon a physical characteristic or is gay cultural taste seeping into the straight world or has repeal of DOMA unleashed the Kracken in Annapolis ?

  15. Delicious!

    Posted by: David Hearne | May 21, 2013 2:22:18 PM


  16. CORRECTION :

    That should be " repeal of DADT"......a Freudian slip.

  17. How very Greek...

  18. All those men. Smoking hot. I wish I was there to see and feel it (sorry, dirty thoughts again).

    Posted by: Matt26 | May 21, 2013 2:30:12 PM


  19. So let's see. This is a homo-erotic activity, which implies somehow that supposedly "straight" men, in fact, have strong sexual attractions to other men.....and that bisexuality is the "normal" orientation for most men, right?

    So tell me again, how do some of you square that notion with the idea that one is either "gay" or "straight" and that there is no gray area or in-between, the idea that sexual orientation is absolute and is not a "preference".

  20. Where are my meds?

  21. I especially like the redhead, about halfway down, marble-pale and doing a perfect imitation of St. Theresa's exctasy when pierced by Bernini's arrow...

  22. *DROOL* Nothing homoerotic about that -- just a bunch of hot, sweaty, shirtless, fit young men groping each other as they scale a lubed-up phallus. Perfectly innocent!

  23. David and JackFknTwist, manscaping, pube trimming, sack n' crack shaving and waxing, etc. have become mainstream in the US, especially among the younger generations. Lots of straight guys are doing it and are even openly talking about it. The trend among gays has caught on and the porn aesthetic has had a huge effect. Meanwhile, there has been a pro-body hair backlash among some in the gay community that has started to shame guys for shaving/trimming/waxing. Jeez, whatever. I say, to each his own. Have the amount of body hair that you like on yourself and feel most comfortable with (or if you don't care either way and your bf/hubby has a preference, feel free to cater to that), but don't feel pressured to adopt any particular look that you aren't comfortable with. Enough with the shaming either way. Personally, hairy asses and ballsacks turn me off (I'm a big rimmer and ball sucker and I don't find lots of hair in those areas to be appealing), and I prefer a nicely trimmed pubic bush and nicely manscaped man (I want to sleep with a man, not an ape). However, I draw the line at excessive shaving/waxing, especially the boys who remove all their body hair south of their eyebrows. That is creepy, since I'm not interested in pre-pubescent kids either. There's a happy medium there...

  24. It's an A&F shoot come to life.

    Do they follow an attractiveness/buffness code to take part?

  25. Yay AMERICA!
