And for your dose of sleaze, our favourite indie boy of gay films of yore, Miko Pasamonte. He’s still cute and daring, but more on the dark side. Miko’s not that visible lately in showbiz, but I’m pretty sure he’ll be bolder if the independently-produced movies with queer themes will be the fad again.

Body of Work

Rocco Nacino is doing a biopic on a saint and he’s shirtless in the new Bench Body ad. Of course, the diminutive actor didn’t get the memo that he’s supposed to lie low from sexy projects as he’ll be promoting the holy-man role any time soon. He’s still a little hottie, though.

T-back Thursday

In the olden days, the performers wore this. Lacey and tacky and sexy and come-hither. It was good and the men were more on the good looking side. Just like John Miller here, Filipino-Australian bump-grinder of the past. I wonder where he is now, John of the different eye hues?


Male model Mauro Lumba used to be one of the up-and-coming personalities in the tvc block with his star turn in the C2 drink commercial. He showed a lot of promise then as a sexy new model-actor on the rise. Lately, however, he has taken on bit parts in showbiz and modelling. He’s also one of the favored escorts of you-know-who.

Big Boy

They’re getting bigger and bigger. These Semerad twins. I think Bench Body never had large-sized men before as underwear models from the time of the hard-muscled and -fat rugby members of the Philippine Volcanoes. Do you like big boys?

Sam Oh

Question: Do you think barely legal Sam Concepcion is ready for the underwear league? Like, model in skimpy skivvies, bulges, butt and all? For Bench Body, knowing how flimsy the cheap fabrics can get, Sam could show some strong stuff he’s made of. The kid’s showing some promise, right? Be nice.

Barely There

From Luciano chic to …

Allen chintzy, the thong is making a comeback in men’s underwear fashion. I think. It’s sexy and groin -baring! Plus, this type of underwear offers very little protection [and cover] and leaves much to the prurient imagination. Kinky, right?

The Snake Charmer

And it had to happen. The snake making its way into the props department of an underwear campaign. Despite the double entendre, Borgy Manotoc is nailing the sexy photo shoot for Bench Body‘s holiday line.  

Jakey Goes To The Circus

What’s a Bench Body campaign without the resident exhibitionist? Come hell or ugly butt, Jake Cuenca is given his spotlight in the underwear company’s ads and shows. After all, he’s the most favored and loyal of them all. All, of course,  refers to the bulge-baring male models of yore who lorded it over Bench Body in the not-so distant past. Isn’t he still a hottie?
