Magic Mike is the latest film showing a lot of male bodies in nothing more than strings and leather - and often less. It is aimed at testosterone hunters, those out for the thrill of undressing in public or for the voyeuristic pleasure of seeing someone do so. The story is supposed to represent that of a male stripper trying to enter a relationship. I took that from the description supplied by Warner Bros. It is not obvious when watching the movie.
Australia's +Bernard Tomic was the featured teen boy in +Roger Federer's jubilee match. With 1,000 matches played in the ATP since 1998 when he entered the tennis circus as an excitable teen, Roger may not be the record holder but it is an impressive figure. At the Australian open, Roger was playing the jubilee match against Bernard Tomic, an excitable young teen playing for Australia.
Swedish professional soccer player Anton Hysén has declared himself to be gay in March this year. The news was met with varying degrees of shocked incredulity. Media all over Europe made a pilgrimage to Sweden to interview him. Organisations of all kinds and denominations tagged the hero label to his (admittedly very attractive) person. The only thing I find incredible about this story is that it was worth mentioning at all not to say the vast media interest. It just goes to show that soccer has a long way to go to get free of all kinds of prejudice.
When writing a blog about pretty boys, the +Twilight saga has to be part of the deal. There are just too many shirtless teens running around in various sequences to ignore it. And I heard that some girls like it, too. But that might be only rumor. After all, cute boys usually are gay or bisexual, the heterosexual kind is called good looking.
