YouTube isn’t just for uploading anti-gay rants and Beyonce choreography — it’s also a place where men who fancy themselves hot enough for public consumption upload ego massages! These mostly consist of them flexing, lifting weights, and general showing off in front of a camera. We’ve wasted precious working hours scouring for a few of our favorite show-offs.
Recipe: White underwear, camera angled from below.
Appeal: Ass shots, basically.
Recipe: Lift shirt to reveal washboard abs, perform pushups in jockstrap.
Appeal: “Fitness trainer” Michael Fitt has a series of DVDs he sells. He gets naked in his latest one. Surely his clientele purchase his workout videos to train.
Recipe: Curls and pushups in the driveway? That’s just a preview till I show you the gym in the garage!
Appeal: It’s a free look at self-proclaimed “muscle sensation” Tyler Southwick, who otherwise charges for access to his website.
Recipe: Flex whole body while letting the camera only get a close up of my crotch.
Appeal: Like, great legs … and stuff.
Recipe: Fresh-from-the-gym, haven’t-had-carbs-in-weeks flexing in a Speedo. Indoors and outdoors!
Appeal: He bills himself as having the “world’s best body,” but it looks like he lives in one of the “world’s least cleanly apartments.”
Recipe: Pushups on a lifeguard chair at the beach.
Appeal: He loves his body more than we could ever love him.
Recipe: A collection of “freak muscle teen” bodybuilders getting ready for competition.
Appeal: There’s such a thing as too much bronzer.
Recipe: Shirtless, live (to tape) from a dorm room!
Appeal: Two amateur wieghtlifters for the price of one.
Recipe: Curling really heavy weights to awkward music, then showing off your acid wash jeans.
Appeal: We’re not sure what there’s more of here: ego or steroids.
I’m kind of irritated with this perfection culture in the gay community.
@Alexandre: Only ugly, out of shape people have a problem with it.
And Queerty got #3 and #4 mixed up. #3 is Michael Fitt (my personal favorite), and #4 is Tyler Southwick.
I know this may sound mean, but people who take a lot of pictures of themselves are faking a lot of smiles.
I’m thinking this is a cry for help.
Thanks QUEETY! One of the funniest, most useful, interactive and time-at-work wasting posts in, well, forever! More like this, regardless of topic!
Who wants to bet most of the “straight” “christian” men ranting about gays and homosex in the Carrie Prejean threads will favorite all of these YouTube videos? LOL
this stuff is weird.
Love the comentary! lol
these guys are douchers.
they might look good, but they obviously are messes on the inside who need attention to help inflate their egos. muscles might be big, but their self esteem isn’t.
Only fug people are interested in self esteem.
“they might look good, but they obviously are messes on the inside who need attention to help inflate their egos. muscles might be big, but their self esteem isn’t.”
great psychological insight! you ever think that maybe they’re proud of all their hard work?
If someone wants to define themselves to the world by posing for the camera and showing off their body…you know, whatever. It doesn’t matter why they do it, for attention, to soothe low self-esteem, or to masturbate to later. It’s their prerogative and there are people out there who are willing to feed that. I can be thankful that I am in no way forced to befriend or date these people, much less watch their videos.
Here’s the interesting thing…neither is anyone else. If you don’t like it, who cares? The thread is obviously for people who admire this sort of stuff. I didn’t see Queerty asking for critiques (though I have no doubt they expected them). If you really want to go against the grain, don’t dis the “models”…dis the folks who actually enjoy watching pointless clips like these.
that first guy. the one w/the camera on his ass? meh. and sweet jesus kids, just because you like to flaunt what you worked for doesn’t mean you have low self-esteem. it just means you’re proud of your results.
quit bitching and hit the gym.
Why do so many bodybuilders have that hard looking bloated gut? A few of them were very yummy but being a tall guy it always disappoints me to find out they’re only 5’6-5’9. I like a big sonofabitch to smack me a around a bit…lol
@Michael W.: Are you that 50 something queen that was in Ballys the other day working out like you are still in your 20’s while cruising that new twink?
Girl I swear you should be ashamed of yourself. The other girls and I laugh at you. Not with you. I do hope you own stock in the Grecian for Men company. Queens like you will see to it they stay in business.
Does anyone know that techno song that is playing in number 3, that is a jam.
So these guys have invested a lot of time in their bodies and now they’re trying to make a profit off it. Good for them. Now let’s have a chat about production values …
@josh999: Just wait. There is clearly more and better to come. With the economy in the condition it is currently in the price of professional-consumer HD-Dv camcorders is coming down and fast.
With youtube turning into nothing but a paradise for any young’un or old fart who wants to stand in front of a camera with a fantasy free pornsites will go the way of payperview sites. ALL of those sites are experiencing downturns as far as revenue goes.
It is really ironic when you think about it. Now I understand why ESPN simply quit showing those men who clearly use drugs to get to their bodies on TV. Everyone knows how they did it regardless of how awe struck we all once were by them. Why spend all of that money on a show that would not improve in ratings even if it were featured on LOGO?
The one I find the most interesting is the one where the lonely, lost looking little boys are getting ready to go on stage and look so grateful the black guy did not take off his close and show them all up. Out in california back in the 80’s I saw guys who would pack up and leave if they saw black guys in the show that were clearly bigger than they were.
What wusses the majority of them are. Just sit back and enjoy the show here folks and try not to figure who has a sugar daddy present but off camera.
Gurlene, did you see that hot mess of a thread?

Wow, some of these comments should be printed in GREEN INK!
The “cult of perfection” in the gay community? A more obnoxious cult is the gay cult of JEALOUSY. Attacking or insulting someone who’s good-looking, has a good job, a cool partner, or whatever.
Straight guys like looking at pretty girls (as in the SPORTS ILLUSTRATED swimsuit issue). Why shouldn’t we enjoy looking at hot guys, especially ones like these who really enjoy being looked at?
Personally I’m tired of bitter, bitchy ‘mos who sit on the sofa swilling down beer and pizza, complaining about the “cult of perfection” in our community.
Quit bitching, quit hating, get some control over your eating and boozing, get your lazy butt to the gym from time to time, and enjoy feeling and looking better. If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em! 🙂
Turn on! 😀

I do wonder why all of the guys you selected look like they’re still in High School. Is Queerty promoting the idea that gay guys are only attracted to adolescents?
I started lifting weights in college, but I had trouble getting a date in my 20s. In my 30s, things started to pick up. In my 40s, I was fighting the boys off with a taser.
Yes, gentlemen, some things can get better with age. Muscle is one of them. Men in their 30s and 40s actually pack on more quality muscle than kids in their teens and 20s can. It’s never too late to start an exercise program.
@Chitown Kev: Hey Kev. Unfortunately yes I looked at all of them. Can’t say they were bad though. A few I actually liked. I was taken back to the early 80’s in california when I too thought the whole world stopped to look everytime I walked out the house. I lived in/for the gym in both workouts and cruising.
I see it has gotten worse now in many ways thanks to youtube and such but every now and then, like this spread featured, you see one or two that are nice and tasteful. And tech song was nice too. I am checking online free music to see if I can find it.
@Chitown Kev: Kev, be sure to check out #4. The guy is nothing at all to write home to momma about but what caught my attention about him was HOW he markets himself. Hi-Def photo shoot. Professional all the way down. I did not go further than the preview (free stuff) but the dude is smart and he understands the power of marketing and the gay audience. I have a feeling he isn’t gay either. He appears to me to be a college grad who is going to have all of his bills paid by the end of the month.
It is absolutely brilliant when you stop to think about it. I do hope queerty got “something” out of it because he is sure to gain members for the ranks of the ignorant. Brilliant. Brilliant. Brilliant is all I can say.
@Alexandre: We need to make ourselves appear like the average person to win over the people like the Vietcong did.
Yeah, so eat more twinkies and drink more beer. Average it up… Gay rights is more important than looking good and having a healthy sex life. Just ask strumpet.
