Jack Mackenroth - Hunk du Jour

Happy Hump Day, Hunk Lovers! Here's a hump day quickie for you, perennial fan favorite Jack Mackenroth in these exclusive pics just for your discerning eyes!

Jack gave us a little insight on the shoot:

[Kevin and I had] been talking about shooting for a while now but our schedules never seemed to synchronize. I've been a fan of Kevin's work for a long time. The shoot was initially for a Brazilian magazine called GLAD but something got lost in translation during their communication regarding art direction and they thought the photos were "too provocative" and they only ended up using one image. We put a lot of time and effort into the shoot so we sent them to you so they could see the light of day.

Their loss is our gain! Thanks, Jack! Tweet him your appreciation to @JackMackenroth (and while you're at it - follow us @HunkDuJour!)

Nick Youngquest - Hunk du Jour

Jack Mackenroth - Hunk du Jour

I have an exclusive look at new photos from Jack Mackenroth, taken by the incomparable Rick Day! Says Rick, "It was a pleasure working with Jack. His beauty and professionalism made my job a hell of lot easier and quite enjoyable."

Jack was similarly impressed with Rick, saying "I love all of Rick's work, because he celebrates the male physique, without depending on tools like Photoshop, so the images always come out looking fresh and real, and the lighting is amazing."

Both men have been busy lately, with Rick Day recently releasing his book Pioneers and Jack just finishing co-producing a popular web series called The Queens of Drag: NYC on

Cristiano Ronaldo for Armani - Hunk du Jour

By now you've seen the photos of Cristiano Ronaldo for Emporio Armani... This post may just be serving as an excuse to post him.

BUT! I do have a minor upgrade to the site that I'm sure will thrill and delight all of you... I've modified the Hunk of the Day nomination process so that we will no longer see multiple photos of the same guy on the same day.

AND! Last year we quietly implemented the return of commenting with a new system using Disqus. Please note you must confirm your e-mail address with Disqus (or use another method of logging in) for your comments to appear.

FURTHERMORE! We've put the Hunk Guide on hiatus... but you should check out who has picked up right where we left off. (Plus you can vote-up the Hunk du Jour posts there!)

AND YET! I'm working on creating a blogroll system to spread more of the link-love mojo around to sites I love that don't link to us.

BECAUSE! I love you guys... Have a nice Thursday.
