When I tell you that I’m all about sexy guys and making real life love connections I need you to know I’m so sincere! If I wasn’t I wouldn’t have complied this list of 50 Man Candy treats made of all types of shades and colors of delectable male humans. Looking at pictures through a monitor is only an exercise, the real test of skill comes when you decide what type of man pleases your eye, then it’s up to you to snag your clone crush and run away into the sunset.

I can’t say that I share your frustration with being incapable of meeting people nor finding men. Seriously folks, if you are serious about finding love and romance in your life then the best advice that I can give to you is to go out in the real world and participate. If you’re single and looking to meet people then you should consider getting a dog.

This is Duke.

Duke is a 12 year old Cocker Spaniel mix who was rescued from a shelter far, far away. He’s a friendly shag ball of slobber and floppy ears but dammit if he doesn’t bring all the boys to the yard!! Duke is my roommate’s pet and because she’s busy with an infant it’s been my job to run Duke up and down the streets of New York so that he can have ‘personal time’. I do this three times a day.

I can’t say that I enjoy picking up poop or getting my legs caught in his super long leash but it’s not all bad.

What I don’t mind about Duke is that he has NO PROBLEM making new friends. When he sees a cute pup that catches his eye nothing can stop him from making an introduction.

Lucky for me, I’m standing there as he does so. I’ve met more than my fair share of cute men and women while in New York, thanks to Duke the dog. Breaking the ice is effortless because we chat over what else but the dog? His eating habits and his general behavior is inquired about several times a day. It’s like a whole new world of people and Duke is my network connection.

What’s not lucky for me is that he drags me through bushes and across busy intersections to get to any other dog in his immediate eyesight, but so far, so good.

I’m still here, right? I had a very sexy jogger stop and help me to my feet after one such incident. He lifted me to my feet with ease, all concerned looking, and dam he had some beautiful blue eyes. I apologized for interrupting his pursuit of physical fitness. He’ mentioned, ‘too cute’, before returning to his run. I’m not sure if he meant himself or the dog.

I decided to take the dog for a walk in Prospect Park where we came across this little seating section. It looks like Hobbits live here. I’ve yet to find the seats unoccupied and have been unsuccessful and the Summer is nearly over. Secluded space is hard to come by in New York, I believe.

The Prospect Park lake is quite large and there are several walking paths that will put your right next to the water. Normally I would have passed by but felt confident with Duke the dog at my side. Had something happened I’m sure he would have dived to the ground to roll around in play as I scream for help. Lucky me, nothing bad happened besides these fuzzy cell phone pictures.

What you can’t see is that there is an exceptionally sexy Black man laying across the rocks. I’m sitting and watching him relax. He has a bike next to him, so let’s presume that he’s been riding his bike. I’m not a creep and I don’t have a camera with a long shot lens (I’m saving my money for a new camera) because had I had the proper equipment, I’d show you exactly what I’m gazing out right now. It ain’t the waterfall, bruh.

Either way, me and Duke are so busy gawking at real life Man Candy, and he at puppy love, that I’m neglecting my relationship and sexuality writing. My bad, but what would my advice be if it isn’t tested out in the real world where it really matters?

So….my advice to you is that if you’re single and looking to mingle then you need to get a dog. Companionship, an ice breaker and the living breathing motivation to get up, go out and DO SOMETHING.

EVEN IF THAT SOMETHING IS PICKING UP DOG POOP!! I borrowed a plastic baggie from an Asian guy with a face piercing and long beard that I wanted to procreate with on the spot.

So my question to you is ‘what are you waiting for?’

Right now, I’m jamming to a song from a pretty cute Asian singer crooning about a mocha-colored sister and I think I’m going to be obsessed with it for the next couple of days. As American black hip hop and R & B artists are squeezing out black women in favor of white or racially ambiguous objects of desire, it looks like some Asian artists are taking an opposite approach.

And…

What I like about these depictions is that black women are seen as the objects of desire, not solely SEXUAL objects. That distinction is important. What is also notable is that in both videos, the women are classy. These are the anti-video hoes.

There’s no doubt that American hip hop culture inspires these artists, but these non-black men aren’t encumbered by a shady history of slavery-style self-hate that drives many U.S. c/rappers to view lighter and whiter women as the ultimate trophy. Yes; I know shadism is a global problem that has it’s hands in Asian culture, it seems that they have yet to be poisoned by a rabid, foaming-at-the-mouth hatred for black women. True observation, or nah?

That’s not to say it won’t happen with continued influence and exposure to the putrid and poisoned elements of American hip hop, and considering that the second video was produced by Warren G, I think we all need to hold our collective breaths on this.

But in both videos, the purpose of the beautiful black women is to depict them as romantic aspirations in which these men wish to woo and seduce. They are a pricz to be won by the Asian guy with the best macking skills.

Here’s a question: In a world spun by white supremacy, why don’t you suppose they didn’t use white women in these videos?

From time to time it assists one’s palate to try new things. You who sit and drool over traditional favorites and refuse to consider anything outside the box don’t know what you are missing. I find that an open mind is the best accessory while tempting tasty male treats so this week’s Man Candy Monday is all about the ABLE BODIED MEN that make other men look like pig tailed school girls.

Greg-Gadson2

Colonel Greg Gadson is an active duty Colonel in the United States Army and the current Garrison Commander of the U.S. Army Fort Belvoir. He is also a bilateral above-the-knee amputee, occasional actor, and motivational speakerHe served in the U.S. Army for more than 20 years as a field artillery officer and served on active duty for Operations Desert Shield and Desert StormOperation Joint ForgeOperation Enduring Freedom, and Operation Iraqi Freedom.

On the night of May 7, 2007, while returning from a memorial service for two soldiers from his brigade, he lost both his legs and severely injured his right arm to a roadside bomb in Baghdad. He became one of the first military personnel to use a next-generation powered prosthetic knee with technology to make it possible for amputees to walk with confidence and with a more natural gait.

Hugh-Herr

Hugh Herr, MIT, amputee, Wired magazine

By age 17 Hugh Herr was acknowledged to be one of the best climbers in the United States. In January 1982, after having ascended a difficult technical ice route in Huntington Ravine on Mount Washington in New Hampshire, Herr and a fellow climber Jeff Batzer were caught in a blizzard and became disoriented, ultimately descending into the Great Gulf where they passed three nights in −20 °F (−29 °C) degree temperatures. By the time they were rescued, the climbers had suffered severe frostbite.

Both of Herr’s legs had to be amputated below the knees; his companion lost his lower left leg, thetoes on his right foot, and the fingers on his right hand. During the rescue attempt, volunteer Albert Dow was killed by an avalanche.[1] Following months of surgeries and rehabilitation, Herr was doing what doctors told him was unthinkable: climbing again. Using specialized prostheses that he designed, he created prosthetic feet with high toe stiffness that made it possible to stand on small rock edges the width of a coin, and titanium-spiked feet that assisted him in ascending steep ice walls.

He used these prostheses to alter his height to avoid awkward body positions and to grab hand and foot holds previously out of reach. His height could range from five to eight feet. As a result of using the prostheses, Herr climbed at a more advanced level than he had before the accident, making him the first person with a major amputation to perform in a sport on par with elite-level, able-bodied persons.

After his climbing career, Herr began to focus on academics, previously an area of little interest to him. He earned an undergraduate degree in physics at his local college, Millersville University, and a master’s degree in mechanical engineering at MIT, followed by a PhD in biophysics from Harvard University.

Noah Galloway was injured by a roadside bomb during his second tour in Iraq in 2005. Now the double amputee is using his recovery process to inspire health, fitness and inspiration to himself and others like him. The 32 year old is the re-married father of three children and is currently considering going back to complete his education to become a school teacher. 

Jerome Singleton

scorecol8s-3-web

Jerome Singleton (born July 7, 1986) is a Paralympic athlete from the United States competing mainly in category T44 (single below knee amputation) sprint events. Because he had no fibula in his right calf, his leg was amputated below the knee when he was 18 months old.

Singleton was born in Greenwood, South Carolina, and attended Dutch Fork High School where he played varsity football, junior varsity basketball and track. He holds a bachelor’s degree in math and applied physics from Morehouse College and a bachelor’s in industrial and operations engineering from the University of Michigan. He has worked as a researcher at NASA and CERN.

After joining the U.S. Army in 2000 as an Airborne Ranger, Howie Sanborn served two tours in Iraq and became a member of the army’s parachute team, the Golden Knights. Sanborn has performed 2,500 free fall parachute jumps at events across the country. About five years ago, he started participating in triathlons, which involve a combination of swimming, cycling and running.

He joined a yoga class on the base in Fort Bragg, N.C. to make himself stretch more in preparation for the events. He wound up going several times a week and began training to become a certified yoga instructor. In September 2012, when Sanborn was about 140 hours into his 200-hour yoga training, he and a friend went on a bike ride. A distracted driver hit the two men, and Sanborn became paralyzed from the waist down.

In November 1999, when he was 13, Colt Wynn fell 14 feet (4 m) from a deer hunting stand in a tree near his family home in Fleming, Ohio. The fall broke his back, leaving him paralyzed. During his initial hospitalization, he lost 38 pounds (17 kg). As part of his rehabilitation, he took up weight lifting to strengthen his upper body. He would later state that his determination to use weight lifting as physical therapy enabled him to leave his hospital three weeks ahead of schedule.

Within three years of his accident, Wynn competed in his first bodybuilding championship, the 2002 NPC Wheelchair Nationals, where he won first place in the middleweight division. He won the same division again in 2003, 2004, 2006 and 2007, and won the 2008 light-heavyweight class. He also won the overall title for the 2003, 2006 and 2008 NPC Wheelchair Nationals. In 2007, he won the IFBB Pro Wheelchair Nationals, earning his professional bodybuilding card.

There is often speak of how we’re all hoping to get to the point of acceptance to find love and companionship but I wonder how many of the ladies that visit this thread would be willing to date, marry and share a life with a man who was not considered able bodied by society?

On the contrary these men could have just as easily been your husband, the engineer that loves to rock climb, or the military man that was called to duty. Active and engaging men have lives that sometimes include danger and the risk of injury.

Would you be willing to look beyond the physical and value a man’s heart and soul? Do tell….

There are those who know exactly what they like. Their tastes are carved in stone and nothing else will do. When it comes to men, I’m a fan of aesthetics and beautiful male representation. Dark black skin is like nothing else in this world. This week’s Man Candy Monday is dedicated to the Darkest Berry.

I find myself whipping and turning my head at these gorgeous dark complexioned men roaming the streets of New York. There are African and Caribbean neighborhoods in New Jersey that rival the ones in New York. I can’t seem to escape being caught off guard by the shadows, suppleness and intrigue of very dark men.

There are far too many images of black men as beasts, or of effeminate muses and not enough images of black men simply being men. This compilation shows dark complexioned men, some may remind you of your grandfathers and uncles. Others may remind you of that cute crush you had back in the day. Others may not be anything more than a walking piece of art.

I knew not to even attempt to have a MCM discussing dark skinned black men without including Morris Chestnut. This actor has been around for decades and considering his physique  in all the men’s fitness magazine he’s going to be around (and gorgeous) for decades to come.

Beautiful and enchanting eyes. I would pay good money to have his clean and clear skin.

I’ve always thought tribal cuts were intricate and a thing of beauty. The presence denotes class, culture or tribal affiliation. The man who has the honor and privilege of donning cuts such as these paid a high price in time, and pain, to obtain.

Before Tyrese became synonymous with nonsense dating advice, there was Tyrese the crooner and model. This dark luxe brother gave me life when I first saw him in the Coke a Cola commercial that he snagged while at an audition with a friend. Regardless of his personal life, I still think he’s a gorgeous Black man, and his voice is still churned with pure butter.

Bernic Mac was definitely gone before his time. A tall, proud dark skinned man from Chicago, ILL, he made it no secret that he was ‘Dark and Lovely’. He married his high school sweetheart and is the father of one daughter. Through interviews and his biography book he made it clear that he loved his complexion and his beautiful brown wife and their chocolate baby girl. He made a point of wearing finely tailored suits made in the style that caused Black men from the mid West to be fashion icons.

A clone to Tyrese Gibson, Tyson Beckford stunned the high fashion modeling world with his dark skin and Asian shaped eyes. He is one of the word’s most recognized male supermodels to this day after having spent more than twenty years giving the camera a once over with his image. He i a mix of Jamaican-Chinese and Panamanian bloodlines.

Who in the world is Stringer Bell? I would soon find out because every black woman I knew, and some no black women were harping on about this particular character on HBO’s “The Wire”. Apparently, the British actor playing the role was all that your eyes ever needed to see in life, and I’ll now agree. Idrissa Akuna “Idris” Elba is an accomplished award winning actor of television and film as well as a noted club DJ and occasional musical performer.
