 - Hunk du Jour

Iconic artist Tom of Finland, real name Touko Laaksonen, has been getting a lot of attention this week when it was announced that Finland will issue Tom of Finland postage stamps. Well, if stamp collecting isn't your thing - perhaps you're more of a cross-stitch fan?

 - Hunk du Jour

Crafters, a sexy new throw pillow is in your future -- suitable for a throw pillow on that spit-fire aunt's couch, or to spruce up your favorite dungeon! Brisbane, Australia design firm Pearler has worked with the Tom of Finland Foundation to create these fully-licensed DIY cross-stitch kits.

Pearler is shopping around for wholesalers, so US crafters may currently have to endure a long flight if they want to get their hands on a kit. They are currently available for sale at The Queensland Art Gallery & Gallery of Modern Art, The National Gallery of Victoria, and Tasmania's Museum of Old and New Art.

...but the real question is, can you cross-stitch these images onto leather? I look forward to seeing your handywork, hunk-lovers!

Matthew Wilson - Hunk du Jour

Australia's Hottest Tradie, Matthew Wilson, has been tapped to wear the pants of one of Australia's other hottest assets, aussieBum. He fills out their new line quite well.

Nick Youngquest shirtless on the cover of Attitude - Hunk du Jour

Attitude has released their sex issue, and who better to grace the cover than Nick Youngquest? The ten-page spread by photographer Simon Harris is punctuated with an interview with Youngquest.

After his appearances in the Gods of Football calendars, Nick has acquired a huge gay following... solidified by many photo shoots and appearances in gay mags. Straight-but-not-narrow, Nick displays his laid-back attitude about being a gay sex symbol and optimism on the future of gay rugby players coming out.

Check out the story in Attitude... their digital issues are available at and are a quick (and environmentally-friendly) way to get your copy.

Jamie Durie - Hunk du Jour

Our next Home Improvement Hunk can be seen on both Australian and American television -- but Jamie Durie's form of home improvement is featured outside the four walls!

Jamie has been seen on HGTV Showdown, The Outdoor Room, The Victory Garden, Backyard Blitz, The Block, and Australia's Best Backyards. (Oh, and since that doesn't keep him busy enough he drops by to see Oprah every so often.) As you can gather from that list of credits -- he specializes in creating spectacular outdoor spaces!

Before hitting the airwaves he was a dancer with Manpower Australia - something he doesn't bury or try to hide, has his own award-winning landscaping company, and has even appeared on the Australian version of Dancing with the Stars!

Hugh Jackman, 2009 Academy Awards Host - Hunk du Jour

Hollywood's hottest gathered again last night for the 81st Annual Academy Awards. Host Hugh Jackman walked us through the evening, where we were happy to see the scrappy Slumdog Millionaire having quite the night!

Also welcome was the recognition of Sean Penn and Dustin Lance Black, who were recognized for their stellar work in the Gus Van Sant film Milk.

Dominic Purcell - Hunk du Jour

Age: 39
Height: 6' 1"
Hair: Dark Brown
Eyes: Green
Born: Wallasey, Merseyside, England, UK

Dominic Purcell is a British-born Australian actor, who now resides in the US. You heard me right, and that is quite the mouthful! He is best known for his role as Lincoln Burrows in Prison Break. It is easy to see why Dominic has gotten so much attention of as late. He has a smoking hot body, scruff, with an ethnic flair to boot. Wonder if they are hiding guys like him in prison?

Interesting Fact: Dominic's full name is Dominic Haakon Madbouli Myrtvedt Purcell.

Simon Baker - Hunk du Jour

Age: 39
Height: 5' 10"
Hair: Dark Blond
Eyes: Blue
Born: Launceston, Tasmania, Australia

Blond hair, blue eyes, Australian accent? Heaven. Needless to say, Simon Baker has a foot in the door. Improving his odds, he gets his great body from surfing and water polo. Drool.

You might recognize him from this past year, where he starred in The Devil Wears Prada or as the leading role in the CBS series, The Mentalist. He has a few movies in the works, so keep a look out for this hunk!

How long have you been in the U.S. and what brought you here?

I have been in L.A. since May 2007 and have yet to return home for a visit. I made the jump to the U.S. to further my career within the entertainment industry. Acting and modeling is not work for me, its fun, exciting and grants the opportunity to meet some amazing and influential people. It's a passion and one must make extreme sacrifices to follow their dream.

Craig Horner - Hunk du Jour

Age: 25
Hair: Brown
Eyes: Brown
Hometown: Brisbane, Australia

Craig Horner is hitting the radar hard and fast. He is relatively new to the screen, but his chiseled body has led to a couple roles where he seems to be missing his shirt. Not that any of us are complaining! His latest accomplishment is a TV series called, Legend of the Seeker. Here's to hoping that this Aussie hottie makes the jump across the water to the rest of us in the world. Until then, we can watch from a distance and send letters to Australia to release him from captivity.

Beginning Clip to Legend of the Seeker:
Craig Horner Shirtless! Enjoy!

Surf Camp - Session 01 from Surf Camp on Vimeo.

Surf Camp is officially in session! Check out the video above, where in their first session our five handsome gay boys try their hands at surfing for the first time! Filmmaker Vincent Rommelaere and Aussie website Same Same bring us along as the boys struggle to find their footing. The pressure is on to perform, as the online audience will whittle the troupe down to a single surfer left standing.

Watch the episode above, then head to Same Same to vote for your favorite surfer boy.
