  2. And out of the 100, Brian Sims still stands out. Woof.

  3. Brian Simms ftw, every goddamn time. Even his 'ok' pics look better than 99.9% of the population.

  4. I love seeing so many happy people i.e. in this case men who are gay having a good time. I would love to be on the beach at twilight with a campfire enjoying the stories. Joy to all.

  5. Yes, I picked out Brian Sims multiple times - as did the photographers. And no wonder, how sexy he is ...

  6. FINALLY some appreciation on this blog for masculine gay men. THESE are the role models for the twinkly gay youths that modern gay culture seeks to turn into effeminate, whiny weaklings. You'd think for a site with homosexual tendencies, it would have more articles about gay MEN (trannies and sissies do not count).

  7. "P*rnstar"? Really???

    Can you not say the word pornstar now? Is is a dirty word? Politically incorrect?

    I thought this was a "site with homosexual tendencies"

  8. Too bad I'm too much of a self-hating coward for these guys to ever give me the time of day. My name is Rick, and my family has always been ashamed of me.

  9. Oh good gawd almighty, here come the "manly" trolls with their tiresome twink- and femme-shaming bull$h!t.

    Their hatred of anything that might smack of femininity or femaleness goes beyond garden-variety misogyny.

    I think it's pathological. Borderline Personality Disorder or something.

    Get some help, losers.

    As far as the photos: Brian Sims is a Greek god. A thousand times, YES!! I still wouldn't leave my husband for him, but if I were single.... *drool da-ROOL!!*

  10. Feed the bears, not the trolls.

    Posted by: Michael Goff | Jul 15, 2014 1:48:18 PM

  11. No! Pay attention to me! My family won't!

    Posted by: Rick | Jul 15, 2014 1:50:34 PM

  12. There's an expression, "looks like Tarzan, talks like Jane." There's a lot you can't tell from a picture and some of these guys might be the nelliest queens you ever met.

    Whatever the case, good for them!

  13. LittleCanadian is impersonating me again because he knows I'm right. For all his pro-effemanacy nonsense his own website has multiple photos of him looking trying to look like a butch gym rat (and a balding one at that). He hates me because he knows that there's a lot of truth in my rally cry against the anti-masculine bullies that have taken over the Gay male community.

    Everyone knows the only way to be truly masculine is to make sure you're closeted in every aspect of your life. I don't display my true self on here because then I couldn't continue to promote myself as masculine without question if I did so. If you all saw the real me you would know I'm actually as effeminate and weak as they come.

  14. Where are the vegan bears?

  15. Its funny there is a great deal of torontonians in those pics lol

  16. WOW! Pennsylvania's Brian Simms is so photogenic. He's just a dreamboat.

  17. So ... bears are just fat ugly hipsters?

    Posted by: nick | Jul 15, 2014 3:34:53 PM

  18. But that is a metric fuckton of white guys.

    Posted by: Jerry | Jul 15, 2014 3:36:27 PM

  19. Damn, so many hot men. That must be what heaven looks like.

    Posted by: LAWWD | Jul 15, 2014 4:12:13 PM

  20. @Jerry don't worry soon enough there won't be any white people left. Such is the irony of racial integration and diversity.

    Posted by: Jay | Jul 15, 2014 4:13:59 PM

  21. I don't know a living soul out of any of these pics.... thank God!

    Posted by: MarkfromNYC | Jul 15, 2014 4:15:04 PM

  22. Every needs love.....including fat, ugly hairy men.

    Posted by: cameo | Jul 15, 2014 4:18:13 PM

  23. Silly me, I forgot about the racism that would show up here. Forget these guys, they're only white.

    Posted by: UFFDA | Jul 15, 2014 4:18:36 PM

  24. Right, because bears can't be feminine.

    And I'm pretty sure I saw a black guy in these pics.

    Anyways, I've chatted with a couple of these guys on Scruff. One of them I saw his junk and it was beauty-full!!!
