Female Desire/Beauty Appreciation Week: the "What About Teh Menz" edition

Kwon Sang Woo

Because, hey, I am all about equal opportunity objectification, even if slightly choosier with my objects on this side of the aisle. Lots of aesthetic appreciation here for sure, though, plus, spot the fangirl (eyeroll). As with the female OOD post (AKA POST WITH LOTS AND LOTS OF WOMEN PLEASE FEEL FREE TO PERUSE AND COMMENT), many of these cribbed from the excellent skywardprodigal, with some additions of my own interspersed. Enjoy.

Wow at mountain of David Tennant. I'm not as big a fan of him as my sister, but he IS hot =)

Gordon Modibame - I think I need a lie-down

Anonymous said...

Those dudes are all so young! We older dudes are hot, too!

Falyne said...



Thanks, Belledame!


belledame222 said...

sorry, PP. as I said, my taste in the menfolk is a bit more finicky. there are a lot of older men I find aesthetically pleasing, same as a lot of butch/muscular men, but I decided to limit myself here to the ones that at least somewhat turned my crank (because on the whole women do it more anyway). feel free to post suggestions, though, I'm sure someone will take you up on it...

belledame222 said...

...actually Marsters isn't all that young, although he looks it in that solo pic, which may be a few years old. but where he's making out with Barrowman, the more recent one--I think he must be, what, fifty? -is too lazy to check-

and Barrowman is forty, and Tennant also is older than he looks, late thirties.

I mean, I think Paul Newman and Sean Connery are still sexy; hell, Harrison Ford was not one of my many problems with the latest Indiana Jones; it just wasn't where I wanted to go, m'self, this time.

belledame222 said...

-snaps fingers- ...although, you just made me think of someone...if I can remember who or where...

belledame222 said...

okay, PP, I added one more (as inspired by Jill at feministe). although was surprised: apparently he's not that old, is Cooper, 41, just prematurely grey, I guess. wears it well, though. Marsters is 45.

Alex said...

Anthony Stewart Head may be a little nerdy for you [or not], but he's my older gentleman pick. (Well, amongst many. Totally agree on Harrison Ford & Connery.)

thene said...

*ahem* forgive my obsessive sinogeekiness, but Tony Leung Chiu Wai is one singular person. Here's his IMDB page. I think the other person in that shot is Chen Chang, his co-star in Happy Together (great queer film). They're both appearing in Red Cliff, a John Woo version of a few chapters from the middle of Three Kingdoms, which is full of incredibly hot, incredibly talented people and is coming out later this year !!!

thene said...

Mybad - the person I think it is is Leslie Cheung, not Chen Chang. Sowwy.

Aishwarya said...

...Porter Garner. I'm speechless.

Anonymous said...

Cool! Let no one say you don't listen to your readers.

BTW, I am surprised that Cooper is 41. That's my age, but people generally think I'm substantially younger. I have no gray hairs at all, and I act like a total fucking wackaloon, not all professorial and shit!

Anonymous said...

Belle, if you want a change from Tennant (though you obviously don't) perhaps you could include some of the Doctor's previous incarnations in future "hotty" lists. I'm looking forward to a picture of a half-naked William Hartnell getting his nipples squeezed by an uncredited Menoptera.

Cassandra Says said...

Nice! You're starting to win me over as far as Tennant is concerned.

Thene - Thanks, I was about to go "hey, that's Leslie Cheung!". Which I know because I remember going to see that movie.

RE : Tony Leung, I have to say, the other Tony Leung (Kar Fai) is hotter!

Unknown said...

Ok, I'm definitely violating my "women and femme men" policy for James Marsters. (Maybe he sorta qualifies though? He was quite the pretty-boy in the Whedonverse...)

belledame222 said...

Yeah, Marsters is--not femme, but definitely pretty, or at least was. (He's roughened a bit post-Buffy I'd say)

and yes, Anthony Stewart Head, how remiss of me... Actually there were these great (in theory) black and white stills of this very homoerotic looking version of rope which had, get this, Barrowman, Tony Head, -and- Alexis Denishof (aka Wesley). alas, I concluded they were too grainy to mean much to anyone who wasn't already a fan of the actors.

oh, thanks, thene, yeah, I was wondering about that. will fix.

belledame222 said...

and yeah, I have a similar sort of flexible policy. I mean Barrowman/Jack is your classic male-beauty type, not usually my thing, but he's charming and funny and -gay- enough that--well, I wouldn't kick 'im out...besides, he's like the ultimate pansexual...

and I like a sort of handsome boy next door look sometimes, as you can see; just, irl they'd have to have hold my interest for long. but I mean, top photo? nice to look at...

belledame222 said...

truthfully it's also where slash comes in: a lot of men that do nothing for me on their own, paired up with another guy? hubba hubba. curious phenomenon, that.

belledame222 said...

er, that's "Rope," the Hitchcock thing.

Tom: oh har har. Actually I could've included Paul McGann or Davison. even Eccleston: not really my type, but I can see the appeal, fer sher.

anyone but coat-what-looks-like-someone-threw-up-on-it. I'd infinitely prefer Harknell.

actually I was tempted to post some Patrick Troughton together with the adorable twink in the kilt, Jamie...

Anonymous said...

HOLY MOTHER OF GOD how have I not known that there's John-Barrowman-on-James-Marsters action on Torchwood? *passes out*

belledame222 said...

"Kiss Kiss Bang Bang," ep 2.1

Rootietoot said...

Oh boy...John Barrowman in a kilt. I think I just sinned.

Daisy Deadhead said...

I vote: Michael C Hall & Matthew St. Patrick--but only in a fanfic sorta way. :)

No offense, but these guys are NOT my type at all. (Where are the rock stars?)

I take it you are referring to one of the fabulous Baker boys. Tom or Colin? They were both big "Yellow Submarine" fans, apparently.

belledame222 said...

Colin was worse. Tom wore schmattes, but that coat they had Colin Baker gads.

belledame222 said...

Daisy--no offense. post some! join ze part-ay!

belledame222 said...

can't say I find either Pertwee or McCoy terribly inspiring either, although I did like Pertwee's fop velvet jackets. McGann looked better in 'em anyway.

Alex said...

I bow in awe of your picture-finding skills. The black nail polish! Aiee! *is done in*

belledame222 said...

There are actual full on Rocky Horror ones with him as Frank N Furter, no shit. alas, the pics weren't quite all they could've been, I thought. for that matter--well, the hair was a bit...scary. anyway.

Anonymous said...

But Pertwee had some of the best dialogue.

Jo (entering the tardis for the first time): "It's bigger on the inside than it is on the outside."

Doctor (keeping straight face): "Yes, Jo. You see, the tardis is dimensionally transcendent."

Jo (speaking for us all): "What does that mean?"

Doctor: "It means that it's bigger on the inside than it is on the outside."


belledame222 said...

I definitely need to watch more Classic 'Oo. I just saw the very first ep not long ago. fun stuff. I think I like the -very- old ones better than some of the later (i.e. Coat Of Many Colors) eras.

I'll say this for Hartnell: he can work a fez something fierce.

belledame222 said...

...yeah, Four/Tom Baker's wardrobe isn't that ghastly actually, just kind of ungepatchket, you know. at least the color scheme doesn't make me want to soak my head so much. also the scarf-flinging kind of works.

Oh, what'd I see recently with him--the first Davros one, all eighty billion parts. I gotta say, annoying as some of RTD's schmaltz can be, I think people who say the old stuff was so much better are strictly going on nostalgia.

I mean--well for one thing it could've been a -lot- shorter. And while the technical cheesiness is clearly part of its charm (I nearly lost my shit when the evil!Scallop! or whatever it was put in its appearance--twice!), there's just something about the, well, what -would- you call it:

(something like) "Curses! We've dropped the Super Important Bangle Without Which We Cannot Escape The Doomed Planet!"

"--Oh, okay, here it is in the middle of the hall, whew!"

I mean, there is a certain, shall we say, lack of dramatic tension, when on the whole none of the Sinister Nazis -or- Righteous Revolutionaries seem all that terribly bright.

Rebel Scientist Dude to Other Rebel Scientist Dude: "Here is our top secret plan! I shall tell it to you in low tones (here in the middle of the workplace, where Davros' right-hand lackey couldn't possibly be hiding around the corner and eavesdropping) for extra-secrecy!"

(two minutes later)

Goering Impersonator: "You know, I may seem like a die-hard Sinister Nazi-alike, but I must tell you in confidence, I am concerned about Davros' Evil Plans. What are we to do, hein?"

Cunning Rebel Scientist: "Oh yayz, another defector. Well, you're not alone! Welcome aboard the Revolutionary train, comrade! p.s. sssshhhh."

Not-Goering-Really: "Ah, excellent. Meet me in a small dark crawlspace where we can safely discuss your...little plan."

Wily Revolutionary: "Good idea!"

...and so on.

Belle, I think you've been watching more Who that is good for you.

By the way, do you know what Tardis stands for?

Anonymous said...

That's right. Trite Acronyms Really Do Impress Simpletons.

Anonymous said...

wow, that add for twinsets was totally hot. It's rare to see a male female couple where the male body is so openly on display like that. That is exactly the kind of thing I want to see more of.

belledame222 said...

Tom: you can't tell me what to dooooo!!! --um, oh, sorry. ahem. anyway.

carpenter: yeah, that was precisely what I liked about that one, too. on display and, to boot, -not- in a sort of manly beefcake-y way that's pretty typical in gay male pr0n as well as straight: he looks like he's, well, surrendering. which is hawt in my book.

cripchick said...


i would say we need to start a fan club but i'm sure there are millions already.

and how come you have so many corean guys i've never heard of! (not that we all know each other or anything..)

belledame222 said...

cribbed most of those from the awesome skywardprodigal (link in OP and/or in post below). didn't know him before, but hubba hubba, indeed.

YOU for the fucking WIN.

It was rather interesting for me to read this blog. Thanx for it. I like such topics and anything that is connected to them. I would like to read a bit more on that blog soon.
