Sexy rugby player Ben Cohen topped David Beckham at the Gay Times Awards. Beckham typically wins the “sports personality of the year” award, but apparently the magazine’s readers realized he doesn’t have one and gave the honor to Cohen. The jock loves the lauds, of course, but plays coy: “I’m really flattered and am constantly surprised by the amount of attention I get from gay people – to win these awards from Gay Times is just brilliant.” [UK Gay News]

    What an awesome response! The fact is that straight men like being admired for their looks by other men as much as anyone.

  • spinkysulks

    Ben Cohen is every bit as hot as Beckham isn’t, and I’m glad someone has noticed.

  • Darth Paul

    He’s too fine for words. Becks is yawnworthy at this point.

    Check out the Ben Cohen stories on Outports.com. Ben is very aware of his gay following and has had special events in London just for his gay fans.

    The Sports industry should take a lesson from Ben and the huge amount of publicity and name recogniztion Ben has gained in Europe and the US ( a country where rugby is barely known ) simply by treating ALL his fans with respect.

    It’s especially cool that he’s not threatened. So many american men are totally fucked about being an object of other men’s affection.
    I wonder why?

    I’d hit that big style.

    Rugby is very sexy. But do they swap jerseys after the match? always liked that bit in soccer …

  • dvlaries

    From here I went Googling picures of Ben and he is stunning. I’d wait on him hand and foot and everywhere else… Is it so hard, queerty, to find guys approximating this look, this build and this obvious warmth when it time to do your morning goods…?
