Potentially NSFW. Who would you vote for as the World's Prettiest Male?

Asked by ETpro (34208 points ) November 24th, 2012

Postoperative transsexuals don’t count. Let’s also exclude preops who have had extensive cosmetic and reconstructive surgery. I’m looking here for natural born boy beauties, and that can include masculine, epicene or transvestite and preop transgendered candidates males who haven’t gone under the knife yet.

For examples, here are masculine, epicene, and truly effeminate males. And by all means, do post links to pix of your favorite candidate/s.

Note. Rated potentially NSFW because when I did a Google image search for the topic with “Safe Search” turned off, I got some pictures that were NSFW. Also, some may feel called to expound on what they definitely would do/never would consider doing with a male having such physical appeal. So post pix and expound as you wish. Have fun with the whimsical thought.

MIlo here; Haven’t you learned anything by now?

Me, of course, in sepia.

Beauty is indeed in the eye of the beholder and this beholder votes for Ryan Reynolds, Russell Wong or Mr. Marlon Brando.

Bartek Borowiec is a Polish model and he’s hopelessly beautiful.

Those are very interesting photo’s you have there @ETpro . The ones under “Truly effeminate”. Those boys are truly pretty, much prettier than most women I’d say. I’ve always wondered why men had the best eyelashes and best legs, smallest waists and tiniest buns. Girls clothes look so much prettier on them.But then, I guess they would, since the fashion industry is ruled by men, who make clothes for women, but still think they are tailoring to men. It all kinda makes sense now.

Yeah, well, it goes without saying that trans women would not count as males, doesn’t it? O_o

ETpro's avatar

Here’s my vote. The one without the tattoos.

@gailcalled I mean Milo, yeah, you’re a pretty pussy cat all right.

@SuperMouse, A smoldering hot guy, all right.

@downtide Oh my gosh. YES. If I were not attached, I could see myself on either side of that equation.

@janbb Can’t argue with that choice.

@Shippy I’ve been to Thailand and the beach resort of Pattaya is the Ladyboy capital of the world. The video linked talks about how Thai Ladyboys are leading the fight for recognition of their right to look like females but maintain their male equipment.

Maybe women’s clothes are designed for coat-hanger figures because they show well hanging in a store on a coat-hanger or mannequin with a coat-hanger figure. Then again, it could be that the designers are mostly gay men who find nothing attractive in a full-figured female. That’s alright. I’m adore the BBW look, and their loss is my gain.

@bookish1 Even so, it’s difficult to decide just where one draws the line. Andrej Pejic manages the androgynous look without breast implants or surgical alternation. But do these NSFW ladyboys (Norton says the landing page is virus free. I didn’t click inside, so enter at your own risk.) count with breast implants and hormone treatments, but intact male members they intend to keep? Rachel Houston summed up human diversity beautifully when she said, “When you reduce life to black and white, you never see rainbows.”

I think Shayne is really pretty.

gailcalled's avatar

@ETpro: Gail here; Sorry about Milo’s pushiness. It can get annoying, I know, but I have difficulties in keeping track of him all the time.

DigitalBlue's avatar

I think that I had an answer, but every time I see Marlon Brando, my mind goes fuzzy and blank and now I can’t seem to come up with anyone else.

ETpro's avatar

@AshLeigh As do I.

@gailcalled Ha. Cats are famed for their cattiness.

@DigitalBlue Perhaps Marlon Brando back when is your answer then.

Shippy's avatar

@ETpro I wonder how many straight men, would ‘admit’ to finding them attractive enough to bonk.

Luiveton's avatar

The problem is that there are literally millions of handsome men i’ll forget to consider.
I find him incredibly handsome.
Mel Gibson.
Guy pearce.
Chris Evans

There are definitely more but for now they’re the ones I remember. PS RDJ says hi.

bookish1's avatar

@ETpro: Oh, I see rainbows. Believe me ;)
But trans people are the gender they say they are, regardless of what you do or do not know about what is in their pants. If people are in “ladyboy” porn, that is generally made for ostensibly straight guys who love the cock but don’t want to think of themselves as gay. It’s not really a good resource for figuring out how trans people think of themselves.
It doesn’t make any sense to me that most people would call some of my ex girlfriends male because they haven’t had “the surgery” that reassures non-trans people that trans people don’t really pose that much of a problem to their schemas, while they are beautiful women and have breasts and hips and soft skin. And many people would never recognize me as male even though I have facial hair, typical ‘male’ fat/muscle ratio, and a voice lower than those of most guys I’ve met.
‘Male’ and ‘female’ have various levels of meaning in biology, from chromosomes to internal and external reproductive organs, to relative sex hormone levels, to secondary sex characteristics developed during puberty. It’s hard to differentiate between all these levels.
Frankly, I do not like that ‘male’ and ‘female’ are used as gender labels, but that is because for the great majority of people, their sexual anatomy leads ‘naturally’ to their gender and they don’t have to give it any further thought. I prefer to think of ‘male’ and ‘female’ as poles on an anatomical spectrum toward which people tend, while ‘man’ and ‘woman’ are genders, but I know that not everyone conceives of things this way.

Anyway, GQ. Feminine men make me weak. I’d post photos of the dazzingly beautiful little femme Parisian man who stole my heart if not for concerns of privacy.

Brian Molko is a contender…

YARNLADY's avatar

Taylor Lautner and he looks just like one of my grandsons.

AshLeigh's avatar

@downtide, I think he looks like my sister…

augustlan's avatar

Orlando Bloom, but only in the LOTR films. Every time I see him in this role, I swoon a bit. I call him my beautiful elf. Johnny Depp also comes to mind.

rooeytoo's avatar

It’s interesting that most all of these beauties are young and boyish.

@downtide – that kid is beautiful for sure!

I am partial to blond types and at least a little closer to my age so I choose Simon Baker

Mama_Cakes's avatar

I think that we have a winner with @downtide‘s pick.

livelaughlove21's avatar

Another vote for Ryan Reynolds. Also, Paul Walker is very pretty. Both are the masculine type of pretty though.

I’ve seen some very pretty trans boys in the San Diego are. No pictures, but they make better looking ladies than most females I know.

newtscamander's avatar

I agree with @Luiveton about Robert Downey Jr. (my, when he takes off his shirt…hmmm)
and Johnny Depp is not bad either.
Missing here are:
Ryan Gosling
Milo Ventimiglia (running a close second to cat Milo though, no worries)
Steve Carell
and
Neil Patrick Harris, though maybe not on this picture ;)

Shippy's avatar

@bookish1 Wow! who is that? I don’t like pretty boys but that is something else….dam

bookish1's avatar

@livelaughlove21 : Did you mean transgendered women (male to female), or did you actually mean trans boys (female to male)? I find that statement of yours so confusing, and I really don’t think I am going to be the only one….

@Shippy: Brian Molko is the singer of the band Placebo. Here’s a video to a good song of theirs. He has less hair and even less clothes on…

livelaughlove21's avatar

@bookish1 Male to female, of course. Not necessarily post-surgery. I got caught up in the pretty BOY talk, my bad. But I think it’s pretty obvious what I meant, especially with my last sentence.

Adagio's avatar

In his younger days David Bowie could have been considered pretty.

ETpro's avatar

@Shippy I don’t really know. Not many, I’d guess. Perhaps equal opportunity lechers like me would confess attraction where it’s found.

@Luiveton RDJ certainly makes the grade, as so your other contenders. Chris Evans… nice chest.

@bookish1‘ve known some, and they are not just in it for the money to be made in porn. It is who they are. Why should I accept every gender claim made by any sort of transgendered person, but reject claims about self from transvestites and ladyboys? I don’t get it. If you have evidence that they are delusional or misinformed about their own inner yearnings, please enlighten me with it.

Now, to what we definitely can agree on. Brian Molko is hot and talented. Très androgyne.

@YARNLADY Your grandson must have a hard-body six-pack.

@wildpotato Craigy good looks in a blond. Hard to find without a bottle.

@Yetanotheruser Ru Paul stretched my suspension of disbelief. But then so does Ron Paul.

@augustlan I imagine his character in Lord of the Rings inspired many a swoon.

Johnny depp

ETpro's avatar

@rooeytoo Nice.

@Mama_Cakes Gah! What’s wrong with a masculine kind of pretty?

@scuniper Boyish enough.

@Adagio Back when, I did consider Bowie.

@kwoahh No question.

livelaughlove21's avatar

I feel like I need to add a few more honorable mentions…

Zac Efron
Chad Michael Murray
Ian Somerhalder
Matthew Bomer
Brad Pitt

I’d also like to add a vote to River Phoenix and Johnny Depp.

The winner, for me, would definitely have to be James Dean. Just…so pretty. :)

I normally go for guys too rugged to be “pretty” but these boys are quite nice to look at.

ETpro's avatar

@livelaughlove21 You want rugged, I got you covered.

bookish1's avatar

@ETpro: I did not mean to say that people exist as ladyboys in order to make porn, but that porn often markets pre-bottom surgery trans women as ladyboys, so I doubted that such porn was a good source of information on how trans people view themselves. Nor did I mean to say that they are delusional. Geez. I have dated two trans women who will never have “the surgery,” been friends with far more, and my options as far as that go blow pretty hard as well. I just fail to see how the existence of people who consider themselves ladyboys makes it “difficult to know where to draw the line.”
But perhaps the problem is that we are not starting with the same terms of evaluation, so we are not going to come to agreement on this. Nor do we have to.

@livelaughlove21 : Thank you for explaining. I was wondering if you could possibly have meant trans guys who were crossdressing. One never knows. That’s why I asked.

For me it’s a toss between Graham Bonnet and LIndsay Buckingham.

Parts of what I find so attractive about them are their voices and their music.

wildpotato's avatar

@ETpro Oh, that blond is from a bottle. That pic is from Marsters’ days playing Spike, the main bad-boy vampire on Buffy, which is the role he is mainly known for. Here is a more recent pic, I think from his work on Smallville. Just as hot, IMO.

jonsblond's avatar

Cillian Murphy (those eyes)

Champ Bailey (that smile)

ETpro's avatar

@bookish1 It’s soooo complicated. I don’t even know what I was trying to ask. Looking back over my limits expressed here and there, they are inconsistent. My heart’s too close to this.

@Brian1946 Graham Bonnet definitely qualifies. The video is dated, but the heat is not.

@wildpotato Aha. Now how did I know that?

@Luiveton Nice looking guy, but he’s stuck in an endless loop.

@jonsblond Personally, those eyes bother me. But yes to Champ Bailey’s smile.

rooeytoo's avatar

I was thinking of this bloke when I read the question but I didn’t know his name. We just drove by again, he is on a poster outside of a department store, so I took his photo. I definitely think he is a very pretty boy!

Brian1946's avatar

@rooeytoo

I had no idea that Armani was so young, and why is someone so vested in clothing advertising shirtlessness? ;-o

rooeytoo's avatar

@Brian1946 – I have no idea and when I look at that kid, I don’t really care, hehehe!

ETpro's avatar

@rooeytoo He;s got those smouldering James Dean looks. Definitely hot.
