Reason 5,247 why I love Homotography... Val Muriqui.
...why aren't you following their blog, again?
Benjamin Godfre popped up on this site about four years (and four thousand entries) ago, modeling for Timoteo underwear and looking all sexy as hell.
Enter 2012, and Ben is not just "the Timoteo guy" anymore... he has a rabid online following of "Benjaminions" feverishly watching his blog, tumblr, Twitter, and Facebook pages. He's got more of a skateboarder "fuck you, world" edge these days, too... stretching or redefining labels, he's expanding his empire with a subscription site (an inner sanctum of exclusive and personal content) and even teaming up with an adult film company for a couple scenes.
Almost like he's saying "Yeah, I got approached by a porn company... and I'm gonna do it. Fuck you, world!"
And it works for him.
The attitude, the skateboarding, the free-flowing nudity, the bad-boy next door image, and the brief peeks of a softer side... it makes perfect sense in my understanding of Ben. Watch interviews with him (I love the bathtub interview he did with Accidental Bear) and I think you'll get it too.
So Ben... keep kicking ass and taking names. You're Hunk du Jour approved, and we salute you.
Another treat for you night owls from the mind (and blog) of Fred Goudon... photos and an outtake of Papi stud Brett Novek. (Just 'cos.)
David Axell is a dream come true for lovers of redheads, and in this spread for the August 2012 issue of Manner Magazine you can see why. Photographer Richard Gerst teamed up with Fredo (Styling) and Riad Azar (Opus Beauty, Grooming) for the insomnia-inspiring shoot... and was good enough to share the results with you!
For those brand-conscious types wanting to look like David... check out: Thomas Pink, Briel, Oliver Peoples, Michael Bastian, Moscot, Ermenegildo, Zegna, Paul Smith, Hugo Boss, Yuasa, Kimono House, Alpina, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Bally, and Girard-Perregaux.
I'm a naughty blogger -- I should be taken upstairs and spanked. However, instead of wallowing in self-pity or making grandiose promises of a changed world and being a new man... I'll quietly write a new post.
Fred Goudon is a killer photographer, and a swell guy. He e-mailed out of the blue in 2010 to let me know about his newly-published calendar of Gilles Marini (who was fresh off his revealing performance in the Sex and the City movie) and has been nice enough to keep me up to date with his goings-on... they live in a folder named "To Post" (which was named with the most noble of intentions.)
Thanks for keeping me in the loop Fred (and all of you other lovely people) -- I'm sorry I've been so neglectful.
Check out Erasmo Viana in these photos by Cesar Dutra for New Captain Underwear that their PR folks were kind enough to send over. Now if they'd send over their full product line as well as Erasmo to help me decide which to wear each day I think I could die a happy man...

Fellow guycandy appreciation site MaleModel.us provides this photo of Paco Pepe, captured in the midday sun by photographer Salvador Pozo. Check out the original post for more photos of Paco.
Here's what Scott had to say about the shoot:
"Jesse was referred to me by a model from the UK. Actually a female model who I had never met but she told him he should shoot with me. So Jesse flew up to LA from Florida last summer and we did his first real shoot. I really liked his look and his eagerness to learn and he took direction very well. We stayed in touch throughout the year and I asked him to come back to LA for another shoot.
"We shot again earlier this year over the course of two days and then I made some intros for him in NYC- he has some amazing opportunities coming his way and I am very happy to have been a part of getting him started."
We're very happy about it as well, best of luck to you Jesse!
From Red Model Management take a look at one of their fresh new faces, Leon Fazzio!
A special Happy Birthday message goes out today to two great guys we've featured before - Gary & Larry Lane, the Lane twins!
They've been having a great week so far, as they'll be appearing on ABC's Winter Wipeout tonight! Wipeout is one of my guilty pleasure shows, so I'm looking forward to this quite a bit. Check out this behind the scenes video about the show, including interviews with the adorable Lane boys.
Gary & Larry also reached a milestone in another project of theirs -- their documentary Hollywood to Dollywood follows their journey to Dolly's theme park and their adventures along the way. They just found out that they have gotten clearance to use ten of Dolly's songs in the film -- great news since what would a movie about Dolly be without any Dolly music?
Congratulations on everything guys -- and I look forward to seeing both appearances!

I headed over to the Red Model Management blog this morning to check it out with today's relaunch. Friend of Hunk du Jour Allen Osborne recently joined Red and will be spearheading the new blog, posting the faces of the lucky men and women who may just be the next Alan Ritchson or Edilson Nascimento.
