    Ummm Ill pass thank you, show off/attention whores/needy insecure/”perfect” models are kind of a turn off, oh and the fact that they would probably spit at me should i try to hit on them……

  • jimstoic

    Parker Hurley is everything, and the photo you chose does not do him justice. He has the boy-next-door sexiness and sense of humor of another Ryan Kwanten. I’m not one to follow models, but I follow him. I’d love to see him get his own TV show.


  • AlexM

    Out of all these dudes, i only found one attractive. Whoever wrote this, needed to spend more time on instagram. there are difficulty hotter dudes on there.

  • Niall

    Haha, I knew I recognized the name Benjamin Godfre from somewhere, but I wasn’t sure if it was the same one, until now.

  • Sammy Schlipshit

    Here’s a heads-up to Sean O’pry….dude, take a good look at your grandpa.
    That is where we all wind up regardless of where you start….unless one goes the surgery route.
    Enjoy all the shallow attention and save your money while you can.

  • SteveDenver

    Benjamin Godfre made the cardinal modeling mistake, and it wasn’t the jackoff videos. He opened his mouth and out spilled logorrhea of self-absorbed B.S.

    As for Sean O’Pry, shallow attention, and ending up like his grandpa: he’s got a good 50 years to worry about that. If he maintains, he can end up going the silver-fox route of mature male models in demand around the world for luxury brands.

    @friscoguy/Sammy schlipshit Wow, Bitter Queen Shade. And I’m 61 telling you this. When I was a young guy their age and hot I vowed what kind of Gay man I wouldn’t grow up to be: You Two.

    • Sammy Schlipshit


      Sixty eight here….and what a difference 7 years seems to make.

      You don’t need to agree with me or start name calling just because my opinion and experiences are different from yours.

      Bite me.

  • friscoguy

    @LuckyboyLA: Yet you are here attacking people, hmmm. BTW I am willing to bet I am wayyy hotter then you ever were. For the record I am 6’2 185 athletic build 7 cut 4 pack handsome. No I am not a model but have been told many times I could be. Snap!

    • Sammy Schlipshit

      I know what you mean. At least he didn’t call himself ‘girl’.

      Going by your screen name, are you in SF? Do you agree with my previous comment regarding the invasion of the Castro?

      Strolling down the street I realized I have crossed the boundary of invisibility. Seeing that all the buildings/stores/theater look the same, I forgot I am not the attention getting hot shot I once was. I got no looks at all. Where the hell do all the old farts go anyway?


      It’s really shitty in some ways to get old. I don’t necessarily recommend it.

      What ever happened to Polk Street? Didn’t have time on this trip to investigate.

      Potential model….6’2″….7″….4 pack????? Damn, man. Got any online photos? Now you have my curiosity aroused.

  • friscoguy

    @Sammy Schlipshit: He calls himself “boy” at 62 need we say more?

  • friscoguy

    @Sammy Schlipshit: I think I need a 6 pack to be a real model these days lol. I am not in the league of the models in this story but some think I am. I am on adam4adam on there now. The 40 and above crowd has mostly bolted from SF, too many 20 something techies now.

  • Aly Son

    His abs look exactly like the chair in the background….. Are you sure he’s not just upholstery with a head?
