Yes, Gay Men Can Win a Date With New York City’s Hottest Firefighters

Raising cash for New York City’s bravest, the (all-male) 2011 City of the Brave Firefighters of NYC Calendar is more than an opportunity to sell 12 pages of hunks. It’s also a chance to generate more cash by auctioning off dates with each of the real-life firefighters featured in the calendar. But when we received a note about the contest — where tomorrow night at Sidebar in Manhattan, an evening with each man will be sold to the highest bidder — we were told “women across NYC can bid to win a date.” Did that mean dudes were barred from ponying up their cash?


A rep for On Point Publishing, which is producing the calendar, writes us: “Of course, the contest is open to men! As long as he is the highest bidder, the date is all his!”

So, boys, which one is these gents is worth a few C-notes?

    If they’re straight, I can’t imagine a more awkward night.

  • ForeverGay

    If the guy is heterosexual it’s not worth it as popsnap pointed out it would be akward.

  • cheeseyapacman

    @PopSnap, they are posing naked from the waist up in a calendar that is probably more known to gay guys than women, I doubt they care all that much if a gay guy wants to bid on them so they can watch them for a night.

  • Danny

    In much of the world, if you’re the top, you are still considered straight, so don’t rule out straight guys.

  • Simon

    haha, that’s so real
    there’s also ‘I-was-drunk’ scenario ;)

  • scribe

    I wouldn’t want to bid on a dude that I knew was str8. It would be a waste of time. I also wouldn’t want to push myself on someone… cause if I spend hundreds of dollars I’m getting some ass …lol

  • Isaiah

    I would love to go on a “date” with a straight guy just to see the reaction and listen to the conversations through the night. And making people uncofortable could be fun too….

  • alan brickman

    bring back morning goods..don’t listen to the haters who wouldn’t date themselves….

  • whatever

    His tits are fake!

    Who said “all” the NYC firefighters are straight?

  • testington

    it is a charity bachelor auction they aren’t prostitutes. I doubt they will plan on sleeping or having a romantic relationship with whoever wins, regardless if it is some rich old lady or rich old queen.

    This guy pictured has a killer bod and a nice smile, but he isn’t my idea of handsome anyway. He’s more ‘cute’. charity dates and kissing booths are kinda dumb anyway. It just showcases our society’s double standard confusing issues with sexuality in general. Makes no sense to me. In case I’m not clear, did anyone ever read the Naked Ape? The woman covers her boobs, to be “modest” but then wears a bra to accentuate them and a tight dress or sweater to show them off. MAKES NO SENSE.

  • Meowzer

    @Isaiah…. I couldn’t agree more. I would love to just kinda make them squirm a little :)

    I agree with “Testington”. It’s an auction for charity, not a swingers hook up party. I’m sure some of the firefighters would be “scared” to spend an evening with a homo, but I also bet some of them are open-minded enough to know they were bid on because they were hot.
    Who says anything has to happen other than a nice dinner and some conversation. If you’re bidding hoping for more, your loss. At least it’s tax deductible. If something DOES happen, money well spent!

    Damn, too bad I live in Detroit., I want a fireman.

  • jason

    A lot of these heavily built guys are like brick shit-houses in bed. All bulk, no bite. You may as well sleep next to a log. The best ones are the lithe, muscular ones who make animal noises as you beg for sweet mercy.
