Now the Americans are trying Naked Dating.

A while ago I brought you some images from a Dutch TV Show called Adam seeks Eve where contestants were stranded on an island nude and had to meet someone and date them. Now the Americans are doing their version called Naked Dating on VH1. They’ve started releasing promos for the show and in this first one 4 different couples are shown dancing in the street nude. Sadly everything is blurred out and I don’t know that for the sake of modesty and legality they weren’t wearing g-strings or modesty patches but it certainly looks like they were dancing nude.

The part I love the most about this video, other than the nudity and the happy vibes the promo gives, is the diversity of the couples. The first couple is an interracial straight couple both with absolutely rocking bodies, then a gay couple with rocking bodies. Then we get to an overweight couple who aren’t the cliched reality tv pretty and last up is a senior couple.

Part of me hates that I used the term interracial couple but since there has been such a backlash to a couple of advertisements in the U.S. featuring mixed race couples apparently it’s still an issue. To me they were just a couple, a smoking hot couple that I would love to see dancing around nude in the street.

The worlds sexiest hipster?

This model hipster Jesus is Ben Dahlhaus. So far the internet doesn’t seem too privvy to details about Mr Dahlhaus but the hot Jesus tag is sticking. There are other comments out here calling him the hot hipster. I’m in agreement. He’s stunning. Not sure he’s entirely my type as I still haven’t become a devoted fan of the big bushy beard but when someone is as beautiful as Mr Dahlhaus here, it’s going to work regardless.

After growing up on beaches seeing surfers everywhere I will always have a soft spot for a hot guy with this kind of long but not wildly styled hair. In some photos I’ve seen he rocks a man bun as well as Jared Leto. I can’t find details about height or anything to provide you with I’m afraid. The only thing I can find is that he seems to be from Sweden but even that has let me down as there don’t appear to be any nudes… yet.

It can’t hurt too much… can it?

A mate of mine saw my post last night about feeling overweight and sluggish and he’s feeling like he’s in the same boat. So he’s gone and challenged me, and himself to do the Tough Mudder in November. We have signed up for the one in the Southern Highlands, South West of Sydney. For anyone that doesn’t know what the Tough Mudder race is, it’s lunacy disguised as a 20 kilometre run. Yes, nearly half a marathon. But it’s not as simple as just running that far. They throw walls in front of you and make you climb them along with net walls, mud slides and make you climb through pipes half submerged in muddy water. The crowning glory of this 20 kilometre insanity? Electrified cables that brush you and zap you with a few thousand volts while you are trying not to die. I guess if you have a heart attack then the electric shock might kick start you again?

Now anyone knows that radical changes in lifestyle are hardest to maintain so I’m not going to start going for 20 kilometre runs straight away. I’d be blogging from hospital if I did. No, I’ve downloaded an app that takes you from not running to running up to 5 km over a matter of weeks. Then I’ll start to build on that to be able to even contemplate 20km. Tonight the eating started the overhaul process too. Some salmon fillet and SIX different kinds of veggies steamed and eaten with some lemon juice and a hint of chilli. Yummy.

This is a video from a Tough Mudder here in Australia a couple of years ago to give you an idea.

Things need to change

While I was away up north on my road trip, while visiting a waterfall in the area I was feeling inspired by all the “naking” photos on instagram. Knowing that there were no other cars in the car park when I set out on the walk which meant a good ten minute window of opportunity and solitude, I stripped off for a cheeky nude selfie. When I saw the photo I was mortified. While the rational part of me knows it was not a flattering angle all I can see is the extra flesh and rolls where I don’t want them and have absolutely no need for them. It actually caused a little bit of a melt down that afternoon.

I know I’m not technically fat or anything but I also know that I’m carrying more weight than I should and that my diet has been atrocious in the last few months. The photo I took last week will serve as a reminder to get my diet sorted and incorporate some dreaded cardio into my workouts. I’m vain, I admit it. I’m also not that healthy at the moment. Sure it could be a lot worse but I think too many people use other people’s worse habits to justify their own bad ones. The photo above was taken by my old flatmate a few years ago when I was assisting him on a photo shoot. I was just goofing around and he had an amazing talent for snapping you in the unguarded moments. That is my goal. I’m not going to be unrealistic and aim for a Men’s Health cover model look. That’s would be setting myself up for defeat. Right. Let’s get this done.

Support, not ridicule!

In an interview with Sir Michael Parkinson that is due to air tonight, it is being reported that Ian Thorpe has admitted that he is gay after many years of speculation. This is being met with ridicule on social media as everyone collectively says “finally”. Yes, we all thought he was for a long time and hoped that he would come out eventually we need to remember that coming out is very different for everyone. A lot of young guys these days are coming out at school but not everyone has the confidence, security or the freedom to do that.

Ian has been in the public eye since he was a teenager and in his own words was being accused of being gay before he knew who he was himself. Sure he’s been very vocal about how straight he is but when the media is hounding you about it for years and you stand to lose millions in endorsements, you’d be defensive as well.

In recent times Thorpe has been in treatment for depression and allegedly also looked like he was suffering permanent injuries. As a former elite athlete that is a very hard road to travel. Add to that constant speculation about sexuality which he may not have been comfortable with himself and he must have been on an emotional rollercoaster. I hope that his coming out, if indeed he does in this interview, takes a huge burden off his shoulders and gives him room to smile again.

How about Mister BnB?

On this road trip to see my friends, I stayed at a place I found on AirBnB on the way up and will be doing the same at another place on the way home. What I didn’t know at the time was that someone has started a gay friendly version called Mister BnB. The man who started it was on a vacation with his boyfriend and the man who owned the place they were staying didn’t want two men sharing a bed. I think it’s a great idea. Of course there is always the chance that whoever owns the place might be looking to hook up but just as with AirBnB they might be lovely.

As yet there aren’t as many places on offer as AirBnB which is only logical but I hope it takes off! Knowing your accommodation is gay friendly is so important.

Let’s play Truth or Dare

The AussieBum team are constantly releasing new products it seems and they are great. I sometimes wish I wore swimwear more often because these Truth or Dare swimmers are really cool. They’ve also released these cool BeeBee boardshorts for when you need to be a little more covered up and the sexy Whisky range of undies. Could that model be any more smooth and lickable? I can’t decide which I find sexier. Smooth Whisky guy or the BeeBee boardies guy!

Well hello Patrick!

For anyone who hasn’t “liked” the DNA Magazine facebook page yet, I suggest you go and do it because every day these hot men or all shapes and sizes just seem to turn up in my computer screen like magic. The other day Patrick Rangel turned up and had me all aflutter. How on earth does a guy who can’t be any older than 23 have a chest like that? Insane. It’s also really endearing that as hot as he is, he’s not perfect. How is he not perfect you ask? He has a wicked tanline. If he was perfect he’d pretty much never wear anything and that butt would be brown and lightly freckled like the rest of him. Yum.

Gratuitous army men

We all know I’m a big advocate of being comfortable nude with your mates. This is the kind of thing I mean. These army guys are just completely at ease in the locker room and communal showers. If they were out on active duty then their lives would depend on each other and once you’ve put your life on the line, someone seeing your cock really doesn’t make any difference to your life does it? Nor does it in the civilian world.

Silver fox with two first names.

Buzzfeed posted a collection of silver fox men the other day which thankfully included the very adorable Max from Catfish the TV Show. One of the sexiest guys on the list for me was this guy. His name is Michael Justin so yes, he does have two first names, but that can’t take away from his delicious sexiness. I couldn’t work out how old he was so I did a little googling and discovered he’s actually three years younger than me. The silver hair really throws that off but he does look younger in the face than the silver hair suggests and he has a youthful twinkle in his eye and a rocking body. How sexy is that pouty/frowny shot in the middle with the chunky cardigan on? Yum.

Voting time on the PORTRAIT Challenge

As usual, when we get to the end of a photography challenge you all need to vote on who you think has sent in the best photograph. Remember you are voting on a portrait this time around so ask yourself if the photographer is giving you an insight into the person in the photo and their life? Also bear in mind whether or not you think that it would appeal to someone who doesn’t know the subject as the winner donates a print as a prize for the next challenge.

Head on over to Aussielicious Challenge Tumblr to view all the entries. Be careful to vote for the right one as THREE different David’s have entered this time. So note the number next to the photo and get voting.

Climbed the Ranks

Brisbane based photographer Ali Choudry is working on a photographic series that is all about physical success. He’s photographing elite athletes and performers and capturing their physicality and beauty. Photographed above is Jake Eve, a skipper of all things and it looks like he’s a lot better at it than me, Travis Scott the talented and popular male pole dancer and Olympic Medallist Diver Matthew Helm. If you are an elite athlete or performer in or around Brisbane email me and I can forward details on to Ali. I never get tired of photos of people who are so attuned to their physicality.

A tribute to balls?

A video came to my attention on Vimeo a couple of days ago and it seems to star a porn star Brad Rock who I’m not familiar with but he has some impressive balls. This video is apparently a tribute to the American artist Bruce Nauman who made a video art piece in 1969 of him bouncing his own balls in his hand in closeup. Most art like this I just go “meh” but it’s kind of amusing. The video tribute (below) is almost hypnotic with the smooth balls bouncing around in the sunlight. They are certainly impressive.

Off on a road trip!

Early on Saturday morning I’ll be leaving on a road trip. Since I can’t afford a big holiday like Burning Man this year but I have lots of leave saved up I thought I’d take the opportunity to see some friends who live up north. They live about half an hour outside Byron Bay, a beautiful beachside town about 10 hours drive north of Sydney. It’s famous for it’s beaches, it’s seafood, hippies, relaxing and it’s laid back lifestyle.

On Saturday I’ll drive as far as Coffs Harbour and relax there for the later part of the day and stay the night before driving the rest of the way to my mates’ place by lunch time. They’ll be working during the week that I’m up there so I’ll spend my days taking photos, having coffees, reading and perving at the ridiculously hot men that seem to be in Byron every time I’ve been. It’s always full of hot surfers and backpackers. Bring it on!

I’m planning on getting a handful of blog posts ready to go so that when I can, I’ll log in quickly and hit post so that you aren’t all left high and dry while I’m away for your fix of Aussielicious.
