Lambasted recently over half of a quote while on French TV, does Jean-Claude Van Damme get a "One of the Best Butts of All Time" birthday wish from you?

Let's just get this out of the way first.  When thinking about posting something on Jean-Claude Van Damme, we remember that earlier this year, Van Damme caught a ton of backlash for some tasteless remarks about gay marriage on French TV. Many spun the chat with just sharing the first part of his speech, but left out the second part where he said, “I have a lot of friends who are gay. If they want to get married, that’s OK. ... But the question is, if all the boys marry each another and all the women marry each other, how are we going to have children?”

For one, I find his comments more 58 years old and out-of-touch than venomous and hateful, as many spun them. And goodness knows I can detach enough to fully appreciate the man's glorious, glorious ass.

Ok, let's look at some cake.  Celebrating his 58th birthday, we look at all the times we have drooled over the action star as he has one of the best bodies in movie history.

Born in Belgium, the actor, martial artist, producer, writer and director is best known for genre hits like Bloodsport, Kickboxer, Universal Soldier, and the delightfully awful Street Fighter.

Van Damme appeared in The Expendables 2 and lent his voice to the second and third Kung Fu Panda films.

For JCVD’s birthday, we’re festively taking a look back at the best scenes of him in his birthday suit, notably, dat ass.

Yes, “The Muscles from Brussels,” very much a sex symbol particularly in his heyday, has given us some of the best bare butt scenes in movie history. Here are just a few:

From Lionheart

From Universal Soldier

And from Bloodsport

Michelangelo who? Step up your game, da Vinci! That butt is a masterpiece! Jeez.

Can you look past Van Damme’s tasteless remarks about gays enough to appreciate this beautiful butt, or do you just think he’s an ass?

Instinct Insta Hottie of the Week: Joey JoJo

We found jballa74 on our Instagram TAGGED tab, but we’re going to have to seek him out in San Antonio, Texas where he is a budget analyst by day and a man of our dreams at night.

The first thing you may see when cruising Joey's Instagram is that tattoo so that's where we started our interview (the following is paraphrased) branching out to discuss Harry Potter, weigh loss, and what men catch his attention.

Instinct: So, let’s ask the question.  What’s going on with the tattoo?

jballa74: I added it two years ago.  I always loved The Lion King and I knew I wanted one about that movie and that saying just came up as a perfect fit.  I think it epitomizes me.  I try not to sweat the small things and try to keep calm when deciding on what to do in life.





A post shared by Joey JoJo (@jballa74) on


Since you are a huge fan of The Lion King, who is your favorite character and who do you identify with the most?

Favorite is going to have to be Simba, but I think my personality is more in line with Pumba.

The tattoo is the first thing you see on your Instagram, it does make a statement.

Yeah, from a distance, it’s that hard core tattoo design, gangster style if you will, and maybe that is like me. When you see me from a distance, I could be considered intimidating, but when you get closer to me and the tattoo, you realize that is not the case. The intimidation may come from my resting bitch face, or my “in the zone” look which I usually have while at the gym and not paying attention.

Ah, yes the gym.  What is your exercise regimen? And let’s talk about that weight loss.

I’m there about 5 to 6 times a week.  I started losing the weight about 7 years ago.  At my biggest, I was 315 lbs and a 46 inch waist.  When I was younger, I played football, then quit. The football player style exercising stopped, but the football player style eating continued.



I decided to make a change and joined a gym, but didn’t go for a year.  Then I decided I wanted to stop being sweaty all the time, being always out of breath.

When I started going, I was exercising in the morning, you know, the fear of people judging you was there, but then I realized it was all in my head and I was too self-conscious.  No one was looking at me and I was there to work out and lose weight. I started off walking on the treadmill. The walk became a jog, the jog became a run … and I started eating right.  I knew what to do, I just needed to do it.

My favorite is still leg days on Sunday and I’m still going early, around 5 AM.

Where are you now in the weight and working out and wait, are you out?

Two years I was down to 190 lbs.  And now I am putting on muscle and am up to 206 lbs with more muscle and a 32 inch waist.  I came out when I was 28 years old and it was when I was 29 that the weight loss happened.

Now we know where you’re at, out, and working out, but where do you live?

I’m in San Antonio, it’s cool, and it’s kinda in the middle of things.

It is not as liberal as Austin. There are 4 main bars on a common strip here. There used to be a great place to go to called Bonham Exchange. It was the place to be with three main areas of entertainment that had their own type of music and presence. Then the girls started going there to dance, then the straight guys followed, then the radio station started going there on Fridays.  It used to be super gay, but now you could say it is more “gay friendly.”

How old are you Joey?

I just turned 34 back in April.

Oh, you’re Aries or a Taurus? 


Me too, I was born on April 6th.

Me too!




Always smile...

(Super crushing on this guy, I decide to dig a little deeper.  I mean we had the same birthdays. That has to mean something, lol)

So what is your type of man if there is one?

I don’t have a type per se. I like a variety of men, so no type.  I just found out during my recent trip to Folsom Street Fair that I have a new appreciation of furry guys.  Looks fade though and a person’s personality is his personality.  Personality is important to me.




Ughhh had so much fun! Pics to come

A post shared by Joey JoJo (@jballa74) on


As a bigger guy, then losing the weight, when you lost that weight and guys that said no to you before because of the weight, but now say yes or want a yes from you, what are your thoughts on that?

Once again, it’s the personality. So if they were not saying hello to me when I was bigger or if they wouldn’t even respond, those guys are hahah, haha, ha (no elaboration needed).




Every rejection, negative word, or judgement has been nothing but fuel to my fire.

A post shared by Joey JoJo (@jballa74) on


San Antonio is home, where did you grow up?

I was born in Mississippi, dad was in the military.  He was stationed in San Antonio, met my mother, and promised her family that when he was done with the military, they would return to San Antonio and that’s where I still am.

Nature or Nurture?

I was born gay.  If you weren’t born gay then you could learn to be straight and I have no desire to learn how to be straight.  I’m not attracted to females as I tried the straight thing before.

Instinct readers (cough, me) may want to know if you're single.

I’ve been single for about two, going on three years. I am looking to date somebody.  Well, it’s more like I’m going to let things happen instead of looking, looking, looking.

We’ve been talking for a while and I can see the humor in the “Not as douchey as I appear” statement on your profile, but what about the “Gryffindor, duh!”?

I’m a super nerd, love to read books.  And I loved the Harry Potter Series.  I identify as a Gryffindor since I as well believe I stand up for what is right, try to do the right thing.  I actually took the test on pottermore.com, with the sorting hat and all.

Why do you think gay men relate to Harry Potter?

It’s a story of somebody who is neglected or out of place, and he finds his place. It’s like the gay life, I mean he lived in the closet, didn’t get along with family …

Just like The Lion King, what character do you relate to or would want to be in the Harry Potter series?

Hermione, because she is a bad bitch, but she is also very knowledgeable.

The last question, where we should have began, what does your Instagram name mean?

J is for Joey or JoJo, and the 74 is my football number.

Thanks for the call today Joey.  Was a pleasure chatting with a positive member of the community.  We came for the pics and stayed for the personality.

Southwest search engine currently being used to find flights to San Antonio so we can ask Joey some more questions while looking into those deep beautiful brown eyes.  It might be hard since he is 6’3” but we can hop … and hope.

Let's Celebrate 'The Affair' Star Dominic West's Birthday With Some of His Nude Scenes

Today, English actor, director and musician Dominic West turns 49. What’s more, the classy stud was awarded CanneSeries Excellence Award today at MIPCOM as well.

West is the star of Showtime’s acclaimed drama The Affair, a role that made him something of a sex symbol, and the Golden Globe nominee appears in the BBC’s upcoming adaptation of Les Miserables (like, the 4,539th adaptation of Les Mis probably). 

West has taken off his kit multiple times on screen. In fact, he’s told the press that he's happy to be objectified

Here's a preview. Look at that bum.

Happy B-day, Dominic! Keep taking it off!

Rapper The Game's Package is On Display... Again

Rapper The Game, who broke out onto the hip-hop scene many years ago with his songs "How We Do" and "Hate It Or Love It", is also an extremely handsome dude to boot.

He also has a very popular Instagram following that boasts photo of himself, his friends, and his massive package that is on display in several different selfies. It's something that he started doing 3 years ago and nearly broke the damn internet in the process similar to what Kim Kardashian did when she posed naked for Paper Magazine.

Now he's back at it again, as the 38-year-old has posted two thirst quenching photos that pretty much leave little to the imagination. If you need your Saturday night kicked into gear, then these are definitely for you.





If you cannot see the Instagram photos above, the links are here and here.

5 More Great Reasons to Date a Big Dude

I had no idea what the reaction would be when I penned a simple and silly article on 5 reasons to date a dude with a belly back in July. That reaction was even bigger when I wrote a piece on why there’s nothing wrong with being husky in the gay world.

Even though there were some negative Nancy’s (to each their own), I was elated at the fact that so many men had a positive reaction to both pieces and understood the concept of them: just enjoy being you and forget about the haters.

I figured it would be fun to find 5 more reasons to date a big dude because they really are endless. Keep in mind that this is something that is meant to be funny/fun and not offend anyone out there. There are bigger battles for us to deal with out there than infighting about a list that is designed to make you giggle if not put a smile on your face.

So, check out 5 more reasons why you should date a dude with size. Who knows, you might pick one up tonight because of it (or they’ll pick you up. Get it? Thanks, I’ll be here all night).

  1. You don’t have to complain about calories around us. We’ll go metaphorically hearing-challenged if you start complaining about that burger.
  2. There’s a lot more land to cover. Why visit a small, boring town when you have a forest of fun in front of you? Get the GPS, honey!
  3. We can lift you up at that concert so you can see the performer better. “Sorry Becky and Cassandra, but Beyonce is so much better up here!”
  4. On the flip side, you have a great lap to sit on while watching a show/movie. No, that’s not the bread that’s hardening.
  5. We kiss really, really well. As someone who has made out with several husky dudes in my life, I can confirm that we know how to put it on ya and make you melt like the M&M’s in your pocket.

Amazing artist Tom Goss has this sort of mindset as his latest song he’s released is an ode to the plus-sized dudes out there. It’s called “Round in All The Right Places” and its dripping with a ton of sexy guys who are padded and sexy to boot.



For more on Tom's music you can follow him on Instagram @tomgossmusic.

Call a 'Good Doctor': This Classic Nude Photo of Nicholas Gonzalez Gave Us a Fever

Call a Good Doctor, because our body temperature is getting dangerously high. We're sweating.

Cocktails and Cocktalk have brought our attention to a classic black-and-white snap of TV star Nicholas Gonzalez from 2000. A mega-fit Gonzalez posed nude for photographer Greg Gorman.

Gonzalez, 42, currently plays Dr. Neil Melendez on ABC’s drama The Good Doctor. He is also known for playing Alex Santiago in Resurrection Blvd.. He is of Mexican descent but was born in Texas. He is a supporter of animal rights and PETA.

It’s more than worth mentioning that Gonzalez looks almost identical now to his 2000 self. Whatever he’s been doing, it’s working.

Hottie 'Real World' Star Dylan Moore Goes Full-Frontal in Delightful XXX Nude Snaps

It’s like they always say: another day, another full-frontal XXX pic leak from a former MTV reality star.

Not that we’re complaining. Thanks to OMG Blog, the latest sexy snaps are selfies from Dylan Moore, star of The Real World: Go Big Or Go Home.

From the look of his pics, he doesn’t have to go home. Get it? Because he’s really big. I was making a joke about how well-endowed he is, and then tying it back to the title of the reality show, which is called Go Big Or Go Home. I hope you followed my smart, ingenious wordplay.

Moore used to be a male stripper. He’s certainly got the whole package you need to succeed in that industry; emphasis on the word package. Get it? I was making another joke about his substantial size.

Here’s a preview:

Ruby lives up to his name with sexy strawberry blonde hair. He also has a tight, muscular body with—to be blunt—a first-rate little muscle butt. Fantastic. Here’s a preview:

KJ Apa Reveals His Craziest Moment Which Involved An Older Man’s Privates, A Dead Deer, And The Woods

KJ Apa and several of his Riverdale castmates appeared on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live on Tuesday night, where host Andy Cohen asked a bevy of questions to them about their lives on and off the show.

One of the q’s fielded towards the studly 22-year-old revolved around the craziest thing that happened on a road trip that happened between him and Cole Sprouse (Cole was not on the show that night).

Without missing a beat, KJ responded with “We may have seen an old man’s penis.” Umm… WHAT? “How did that happen?”, Andy asked in disbelief.

“Well, what happened was we were walking down a trail on Mt. Whitney, and there was an elderly man walking with no shirt on, bunch of stubbies, pair of shoes. And he’s walking down, and there’s a deer that had just run down. And he’s up here, taking a piss next to the tree, and then he turns around like this and goes, ‘Did you see it?’?

Watch the rest of the clip to see what Cole said in response to seeing “It”.
