A Brutally Hot New Photography Book

April 26, 2011
Category: Eye Candy

Oof! That would be the noise I make when I see a hot daddy that is so incredibly hot that it hurts. You'll be hearing that noise a lot as I flip through Michael Alago's new 260-page book of photographs, Brutal Truth. Alago, who you may be familiar with already for his other popular photo compilation Rough Gods, is known for his down and dirty style of photographing real and raw men in some of the hottest photos around. He's also one hot daddy god himself. If you like your men rough, there's a good chance you've come across his work before, whether you know it or not.

There's something, not only hot, but comforting in seeing rough men who are photographed just as they are. When you strip away the sheen, you can see the real beauty and sex appeal in being exactly who you are. I think it's the reason I love the daddy/bear community so much, it seems like a group that's more visceral and connected than most.

Alago will be going on tour with his new book, which will be sure to bring out plenty of those sexy men we're all so fond of. It kicks off tonight in New York City and continues on to Amsterdam, San Francisco, and London.

hot body, gross face.

As for me, I like a rugged, masculine face. (I'm curious about the color band tags on his arms, though.) I'll be looking for this book and more of this photographer's work. Thanks for posting about it -- I wouldn't have known otherwise.

A daddy being so got that it hurts mostly has to do with how you communicate and those unspoken signs of character and then reflecting what is spoken into the ear in a real life way where the words hopefully turn into daily actions that last a lot longer than a single moment of drama for sure.
