Stranger in Paradise

How about a string of movies for Brazilian model and occasional tv actor Akihiro Sato? Since this is probably the year of the reworking of the campy 80s movies, e.g. Temptation Island, he could be cast as the token naked foreigner-leading man. Aki could be the new Tom Babauta. Any suggestions?


Just asking. Why do torture scenes on tv involve naked actors? Do they have to strip down to get flogged and kicked and paddled? For example –

Actor and underwear model Ahron Villena grimaces in pain, in briefs, in his torture scene from the defunct tv series Lobo. This was aired on prime time tv.

Also, Sid Lucero gets dirtied up – au naturel – in fake blood and grime in this episode on the discontinued afternoon soap Ligaw na Bulaklak [Wild Flower].

Rafael Then and Now

Then. Underwear model and actor Rafael Rosell looked so fresh and delish on a beach in Phuket, Thailand. These photos were taken years ago when he was just starting out, pre-ABS-CBN and -Bench Body, when he was struggling on a reality show called Hollywood Dream on the then ABC 5 channel.

Now. Rafael Rosell is still very much around. This image was taken on a lonely beach in Quezon province for a fitness magazine. Although he didn’t get to Hollywood, the 28-year-old hunk did make it to relative fame here.

Taut and Tight

The more conservative of the nipo-brasileiros in Manila, Fabinho “Fabio” Ide finally slips into tiny swim shorts, revealing some swelling, a lot of prominence down there. Fabio has been in the country for so long and it looks like he’s here to stay. He’s very visible doing tv shows and modeling jobs of late.

Beginning The World

Really. Patience is a virtue. Meet Paulo Avelino. Newest Bench Body model. Regal Films signed him up fast too, as he’s one of the newest leading men of the film outfit. Paulo‘s set to star in the retelling of the classic and campiest Filipino movie of all time, Temptation Island. It looks like his star is burning brighter now.

Nekkid Guys

Before they came over to the Philippines, they were naked in the dark, behind the curtains. Or some door or chair. They were bold and daring. And now Brazilians Deny Barros [left] and Ygor Pignatari are making some moves in the local modeling scene by landing prime jobs. Deny, of Japanese and Italian descent, is a regular tv commercial model while Ygor, a former Mr. Brazil 2010 contender, is in the new Penshoppe summer campaign with Aki.

Team Play!

Sexy shirtless guys! Now you’re seeing four members of the Philippine football team, The Azkals. Who’s your best bet, the one true favorite? From left, there’s team captain Aly Borromeo [27 yo], then James Younghusband [24 yo], Ian Araneta [29 yo] and Simon Greatwich [21 yo]. Happy Friday everyone!


More exclusive pics of the guy. Just here. Borgy Manotoc is very visible these days. He’s doing photo shoots for Bench Body, in his undies of course. Lately, he’s seen nekkid on a magazine cover with his girlfriend. In a recent newspaper interview, he revealed that his most embarrassing moment at work was when he had to “stand around in my underwear all day.” He added, “but that happens almost every other day.”

Arjay Goes Extra Daring

Indie actor Arjay Carreon [Laruang Lalake, Discreetly, Campus Crush] sheds more clothes and shows more skin in his latest movie and personal appearances.

New Boy In Town

Crowding out the local underwear models scene is Mister Costa Rica-World 2010 Eduardo Esquivel. The 20-year-old hunk is in town to do some projects. Of course, with a 6’2″ frame, hot bod, handsome mug, big nose and bigger crotch, he landed the underwear job. Hawt!
