Alex Rodriguez Goes Shirtless for a Workout & Twerk with J. Lo

Former New York Yankees player Alex Rodriguez has never been on my radar when it comes to super sexy celebrities (no shade), however this latest video of him may just change my mind. Plus he's with one of our favorite gay icons, Jennifer Lopez, so that kind of helps him in his "hotness" scheme overall.

Alex posted a video on his Instagram account where he visited an all-encompassing gym of sorts called TruFusion Coral Gables down in sunny Florida. He brought J. Lo with him, as the two worked up a sweat and hung out with some of the locals while inside.

They did a Down n' Dirty Bootcamp during their visit, where Alex took his shirt off (yum) and worked out to Jennifer's new song "Dinero" which features Cardi B and DJ Khaled. She premiered the song on Sunday night at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards.

Alex definitely has some moves that rival his famous dancer/actress/singer wife, which was seen throughout the video (also peep the other shirtless hottie in the bootcamp class with the rest of them).

Nyle DiMarco Shares His Long-Haired High School Graduation Pic

Who knew that Nyle DiMarco could've had a side gig as the lead vocalist in a 90's garage band of sorts?

The America's Next Top Model winner recently unearthed his high school graduation photo, and the transformation from an Eddie Vedder lookalike to the suave and sophisticated sex bomb that he is now is truly unbelievable.

"It always gets better folks," one social media user captioned the side by side photo of Nyle back then and now. There's so much about this left photo to discuss that its hard to figure out where to begin. The stringy long hair, the workings of some sort of a mustache, the unibrow, but the photo placed next to it shows what a glow up this dude has had, and it goes beyond the aesthetic.

Something pretty admirable about Nyle is that he has taken his platform of being hearing impaired and used it in a way that has gotten millions of people talking. He's worked on getting disability-emojis approved and has just partnered with Tim Cook at Apple to kickoff their accessible Everyone Can Code program at the California School for the Deaf (CSD) in Fremont, California.

Also his high school yearbook quote was pretty "sweet" as well.

Well done mister. 

Instinct Hottie of the Week is Fellow Writer Christopher Cragg!

If there was ever a movie with the title Woof or Grr or something of that nature, chances are Christopher Cragg would not only star in it but probably write it as well.

Chris is our Instinct Hottie of the Week, and for good reason as its always fun to discover fellow writing talent who happen to be good people and handsome to boot.

He is a Toronto-based Brit with a mustache that would give the Monopoly Man a run for his money. Outside of his good looks, Chris is also a talented writer in many senses of the word: sub-editor, online editor, proofreader and copywriter. According to his official website, he lives for "creating eye-bulgingly good content."

That talent has led him to create big brand stories for major companies including NIke, National Geographic and more, and his social media following has drawn in thousands of followers who enjoy seeing him in a variety of fashions (notably the fabulous OsoApparel as seen here). 

I had the pleasure of meeting Chris at RuPaul's DragCon in New York City back in September, and his demeanor and candor in person matches his effervescent personality that he displays online. It's good when both are in sync with one another, thus making him quite the easy pick for Instinct Hottie of the Week.

Instinct Hottie of the Week is Award-Winning Director Brandon Deyette

Could he seriously be any cuter?

Instinct Magazine's Hottie of the Week is someone who you may be getting to know quite a lot over the next couple of years, as Brandon Deyette's career in the entertainment world continues to rise.



His directorial debut for the 2015 film Proxy (which he also starred in) won him a bunch of accolades and honors a couple of years back at several different film festivals. The movie details eight different characters who become connected and forever changed by the choice one man makes (it also stars actor Charlie Harding, who we featured on Instinct last year). The film is available for purchase here



His next big project is an upcoming documentary called Latter Day Glory, which details the high rise in suicide rates among LGBT Mormon youth. The film follows two gay ex-Mormon missionaries, comic book artist Terry Blas and celebrity hair stylist Jonathon Levi Powell (check out our exclusive with him here) as they travel across the United States to confront their past and explore their futures, while discussing with other gay Mormons and ex-Mormons about the rejection, oppression and the reality of a growing number of suicides they face in the LDS community.

During the film, they meet with former and current members off the LDS community including State Senator Jim DabakisNeon Trees' frontman Tyler Glenn, and Real World alumni Chris Ammon. It will premiere in the summer of 2018.

Brandon, who is now based in Los Angeles after living several years in New York City, is also in the process of developing a feature film on LGBT homeless called Kitty. Definitely someone who is on the rise in the world of filmmaking, both in and out of the community, and one you should look out for very, very soon.

I've said it before, I'll say it again: Chris Pratt is one fine looking dude.

Whether he was on the softer side physically during his time on Parks & Recreation or when he was chiseled as f**k in Guardians of the Galaxy, Chris has always found a way to make himself unbelievably sexy as his charm, appeal, wit and humor just add to his already devilishly handsome good looks.

His social media accounts (preferably his Instagram) echo his attractiveness is in real life, as he's able to post funny yet sexy yet interesting photos of himself to his 18 million followers.

Nick Jonas Gets Super Flexible in the Front and Back Side

Nick Jonas got us thinking of unholy like things this week when he appeared at the Met Gala on Monday night. 

The 25-year-old fit perfectly into the theme of this year's gala, which was "Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination." Heavenly indeed.

Now Nick is looking to get ready for his next big event, although we are unsure about how serious he is. He posted an Instagram story on Thursday that shows him training for the Oylmpics with his trainer Stephen Cheuk, who just like Nick is also quite delicious.

During the intense training session, Nick showed off just how in shape he is both on the front and the back side of his body. And if you thought the Met Gala photos were hot enough to get you through this week, you haven't seen anything yet. Enjoy!

The Met Gala Was Much Sexier Due to Nick Jonas' Presence

Look, I'll be the first one (and clearly not the only one) to admit this: Nick Jonas is a fine looking dude.  This goes for when he's in clothes, when he's not so much in clothes, and when he's golfing with what looks to be quite the "caddy" in his pants.

The "Jealous" singer was one of many who attended the 2018 Met Gala in New York City last night, which had a theme of "Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination."

He definitely got all three of those right, in particular his heavenly body, as the studly 25 year old made his way to The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Unlike many of the other celebrities who attended that night, Nick opted to go the more traditional route when it came to getting around The Big Apple: he took the subway. Pretty nifty! 

His desired subway line looked to be on the 6, which coincidentally is the same title as Jennifer Lopez's debut album (proud gay). 

All of this led up to what he decided to wear for the big evening, which he actually took a shot of in the subway station itself prior to getting there. Notice all of the NYC folk who don't even realize or recognize who he is (that's pretty common here).

Regardless, the outfit by Dolce & Gabbana was tailored to perfection and it once again proves just how absurdly hot Nick really is.

Former Rugby Player Sam Stanley's 5 Hottest Instagram Pics

Out and proud former rugby player Sam Stanley is quite a sight for sore eyes no matter what angle you view him from.  

Sam, who currently resides in Sicily, Italy, was the first English rugby union player to officially come out as gay back in 2015. He made waves in 2017 when he got engaged to his equally as cute long term boyfriend Laurence Hicks due to their age gap. He had no problem clapping back to all the haters online in response to their criticisms.

His Instagram account, which boasts close to 20,000 followers, shows Sam in a variety of clothing optional ensembles, many of which showcase just how amazing his booty and body really is.  

Sam's 5 hottest Instagram pics (in our honest opinion) are a great way to kick off your work week on a Monday if we must say so ourself.  Go get your coffee, kick back (for a couple of minutes) and enjoy the sight of one of the cutest rugby players out there.


Britney Spears Works Up a Sweat With Her Smoking Hot Beau Sam Asghari

Pop icon Britney Spears has been giving us some major fitness goals lately, as her Instagram page is riddled with photos and videos of the "Toxic" singer working out and showcasing her amazing body.  She has one major accessory in a lot of the videos that only enhances just how good looking she is, and that would be her absurdly hot boyfriend Sam Asghari.

Britney and Sam have been going strong for a while now, ever since they met on the set of her music video "Slumber Party" last year.  Sam, who is a personal trailer and a male model that has been featured in several muscle-related magazines, is easily a sight for sore eyes as there is so much to desire on him that its sort of hard to figure out a starting point.

She posted a video of them, captioned "Stronger together", that showcases them doing some "couples workouts" that include the art of kissing and working up a sweat all at the same time.  Both are in pretty incredible shape, as Sam easily bench presses Britney and she makes doing a handstand look like a piece of cake when many of us (present company included) know that it definitely isn't.

Take a look at just how hot these two get below:

Gus Kenworthy Follows Up Nightline Appearance With Stunning Swim Trunks Reveal

Gus Kenworthy has never been shy about showing off his amazing body on several different social media platforms, most notably his Instagram account which just passed one million followers recently.

The Olympic Bronze Medalist appeared on ABC's Nightline with his fellow Olympian friend Adam Rippon last night, doing a one-on-one.  They boys went at it and we watched!  Rippon, who's been called "America's sweetheart," spoke to "Nightline" special correspondent Gus Kenworthy about becoming the first openly gay U.S. athlete at the Winter Olympics.

Rippon gave himself that nickname?   Well if you don't love yourself...  or was it just confidence.  We all need a little more confidence.

Speaking of confidence.  Gus seemed pretty confident as he just posted a photo of him sporting nothing but a pair of H&M swim trunks as he playfully put one foot into his pool.

Users were quick to comment on his "VPL" of sorts, although it remains to be seen if that was really the case or just a situation of his trunks bunching up in a very odd place.  "...but that other leg is going the other way ...that's quite a turnout you're sporting!," one commenter said.  Giggity.

We're not sure if there is a protrusion against fabric or just some thirsty people's imagination.  You be the judge... pic below or the link is here
