No sooner had we hired writer Brett Edward Stout as our Opinion Guyd than an ugly, ugly (and yet quite hot) semi-nude photo of the former Marine went viral on our ass. Queerty, Towleroad, Accidental Bears, and Guys with iPhones all posted the offending shot. We are sickened, sickened that Mr. Stout did not inform us of the picture, and we were left in the dust, while these hack, soft-core, shameless publications got all the gay glory.
Of course, to set the record straight, and only to set the record straight, we feel that it is our duty to repost the offending photograph, below. I know … it’s so offensive that you can’t not stare. (While you’re at it, you might as well download our new GuySpy app! for iPhone and Android.) Hey, these guys are hot, and rumor has it tawdry Stout hangs out waiting for, um, submission “requests.”
Turns out, Mr. Stout, unbeknownst to us, was shamelessy promoting his book Sugar-baby Bridge, in a way not seen since Demi Moore shamelessly promoted pregnancy on the cover of “Vanity Fair.” What’s next? Me shamelessly promoting my self-titled book of essays! Never. (By the way, if you purchase now, it’s only $5.99!)
As the Senior Editor for GuySpy.com (the multi-media site that has over 400,000 registered users; yes, 400 THOUSAND), I must personally apologize for a staff member putting himself, quite literally, in front of tasteful journalism. We do not condone such behavior, in the same way that we do not condone promoting our piece on a naked Dean Monroe or a pant-inducing Mark Deklin.
And as Greek Gods are our witnesses, we will never stoop to posting photos of cute men naked just to get you to take a look. That is not our style!
You know, like this photo.
PS: You can rest-assured that Brett has been punished severely. Once we edit the footage, we will post the video to prove it.
