Give Thanks & Win A Wild Boy or Sexy Bear Calendar!

November 23, 2011

It's Thanksgiving ya'll! And you know what that means: time to go around the table and say what we're thankful for. This year we've got 10 wild and sexy wall calendars to give away courtesy of our friends at There's plenty of hot guys in the mix to get you through the year, including men from Butch Dixon and the Wild Boys doing all kinds of wild things, like holding skateboards in front of their junk! Just let us know in the comments below what you're thankful for this year as well as which calendar would float your boat and you'll automatically be entered to win 12 months of hotness. We'll notify the winners via your Daddyhunt inbox on the 29th.

I guess I'll kick things off. Last year I said I was thankful to all of you for all your engaging comments and posts. This year, I'm still thankful for that, but would also like to add hope to the list. I know it might seem silly, and maybe a little corny, but given the times we live in, and the disproportionate number of moments when it seems like everything has gone or is going to shit, hope is an amazingly powerful and driving force. Just look at the It Gets Better project or all these amazing decade long love stories we keep hearing about. It's these wonderfully positive reminders that make me think the future really will be something to look forward too. And I'm grateful for that.

Now it's your turn. What are you thankful for?

I have to work on Thanksgiving, but I have a job.
I am single, but I have wonderful caring friends and accepting family.
I may not have the body beautiful, but I have my health.
The economy is in the dumpers, but I live in a country where I can complain about it and not be jailed for that.
I have a dog that does not always understand the meaning of going out when needed, but she gives me unconditional love.
I have a cat...enough said...
I do not make a great deal of money, but the fridge is full, there's nice clothes on my back, a good solid roof over my head and a comfortable bed.
I am at peace with myself and the older I get, the more content I am with life.
Thank you Rob for asking the question, what are we thankful for. It's good to remind ourselves of the good in life.

I'm thankful that I had the chance to go studying again.
I'm thankful for everyone who is supporting me, through both good and bad times.
I'm thankful for my boyfriend, for making me feel special every day, for caring about me and keeping my feet on the ground.
I'm thankful for the wonderful people I met this year.
Thankful for being able to live the life I want.
Thankful for everything I have.

And thankful for the bearmen calender :P

I am thankful for
daddies who let me rub their fur,
men who pet my belly, make me purr;
books that let me expand my mind,
studs that let me fill their tight behind;
gym memberships to to build my body,
the cowboy who buys chew, what a hotty;
eyes to appreciate beautiful art,
legs that run and help grow a healthy heart;
James, a man with wit, strenght and grace,
a man who brings a smile to my face;
a community of men who make me strong,
to build me up when others say I'm wrong.
Thanksgiving is a time for joy,
and I am very happy to be a boy.


. . . awesome poetry there, Babe! wow . . . .

Oh and a calendar of furry bears would also be something to be thankful for.

Me? I am thankful to my wonderful Mum, who keeps me sane, grounded and sometimes makes me laugh like I was a child again. Now that's a gift you can not buy in any season. Love you Mum.

I'm thankful to be able to live a healthy, honest life. Testing HIV+ shook me up earlier this year. And I've been fortunate to have a great support system of friends, doctors, coworkers to help me get stronger. I'm thankful to be healthy and alive ;-)

I can understand your reaction to testing poz "earlier this year". If it makes you feel any better, I tested poz 23 years ago: still working/ still healthy and very active/ still enjoying life, (including sex.) Even had my first novel published recently. HIV need not derail your dreams, and that's one more thing to be thankful for.

I have been deployed to Afghanistan for 9 months now so I'm thankful to have made it this far and that my platoon and I have not sustained any injuries or deaths due to combat. They have become like a 2nd family to me and I'm grateful for that. Without them I would have probably lost my sanity out here.

If chosen I'd like the BearMen calendar. Thanks!


Thank you bobby. I think you and the rest of your brave men are doing a great job. Thank you so much. Chat to me in private if you like.

Take care,

Hang in there, Bobby. Retired Army guy here (master sergeant), so I know what it's like to be deployed (Vietnam). I'm thankful for guys like you who keep up the good work!!!

God bless you Bobby, and your fellow platoon members and your real family! Thank you for your service. If you were here, I would take you to the beach, which is nice even at this time of year. And after the beach, dinner and a drink and who knows what else! Hope you get the BearMen calendar and come home soon! P.S. Are you army or marines?

thank you soo much for all that you have done, ive had family over there and know what it can be like... im thankful that your platoon hasnt suffered any injuries or fatalities. just keep pushing on.

I'm Thankful for each day that I'm on this earth, I'm able to speak to a perfect stranger by saying hello and give them a smile . I tell them to make it a good day. I Thankful for my freinds and Family. I'm Thankful for freinds who call and ask how are doing and tell me that they were thinking about me.
I'm thankful that I can tell my freinds that I love them whenever I say good-by.

I like the wild boy calender because I like the wild thing it makes your heart ???

To start of with i like the bear one but for once I'm not thinking about myself.But i know my roommate would love the WILD BOYS calendar.So if you ask me i would take that one to give away as a hot gift. So on that note...

Let me say that im very thankful this year for the roommate I have.Even though I lost my job 4 to 5 months ago and had and still dont have any income coming in.He still let me keep my room and not pay rent.So im VERY THANKFUL for that or I should say him. And even though he didnt charge me rent or food I didnt want be a burden for him.As he barely makes enough for his own expenses.

So what I'm also thankful for this year is my mom.She took me in for a few months.Im also thankful to her because this year she stuck by my side because the people who I thought I could count on and I could and would call family.Turned on me and disowned me for something I didnt do. I know I'm annoying they say im like a parrot lol so im also thankful they my mom and siblings put up with me all this time.

Hang in there, smj, things will get better soon for you and your roommate and the family that still cares about you! God bless you for your positive attitude! You are the greatest Hope you get the WildBoys calendar!

As a Skater and Daddy lover the choice is hard, but I am thankful that there is a site like this for Daddies and the boys who love them....! Being a hunter though, Ill have to go with the Daddies... and the Bear caklendar lol... The skaters hmm... dunno if they can actually skate, but would love to meet one who could.!
Aloha and Happy Thanksgiving!

Thankful for the last year I just had with mom. Took care of her til then end. I wouldn't trade the moments for anything.

God bless you for your love and care tomzuk-now your mom will be looking after you from heaven! Acts of love and kindness like yours are always repaid!

giving thanks for another year with health and friends and friends with benefits.

I am thankful for a wonderful mother who is my hero! Simple and true.

I've had a lot to be thankful for in the last year. I'm thankful for my wonderful family and for their love and support. I'm thankful to have steady employment and to be enrolled in college in such tough times. I'm thankful for my health and for the health of my friends and family. And in about t-minus 7 hours, I'll be thankful for a big ass Thanksgiving dinner.

I'm Thankful that at least I'm still Clean, Sober, and Smoke-Free
after I did over 30Years of verrry slow suicide by those very means
from age 13 to 39 -- Life's short nuff; even if I got another 50 years,
why rush it, right? LOL

I'm grateful that I can still get kissed once in awhile
without always having to hire out and pay for it; though I wish I could kiss my BestFriend, Bob,
like that myself - he's suffered so much in this Life, and yet always been so Good to me
and others; yet so far, I still just cannot, and it does grieve me so . . .

I'm grateful to have been born in such a country that, though quite imperfect & I be this poor,
I'm still able to find a decent place to live - butt, wish I could do more for others . . .

I'm Thankful that I can still hold out some hope of a RealLife BigHeroBuddy
out there in the world someplace that I could still get to meet sometime,
and maybe even get to have hold me for one night . . . .
That's THE ONE SweetMemory I'm really praying for, to be able to take with me from this
mean old world - and wish as well for others to ever have such a SweetMemory of their
very own, too . . .

~Christopher . . .

I am most grateful, I was born before my parents could view me, with my imperfections, while still in my mother's womb. Had today's diagnostics been available, I know, my life would have been taken before I was to be born. I am grateful abortion hadn't been decriminalized as I would never have known life. Blind and functional, having close loving friends and a profound love of existing are the trophies of living with the knowledge, I might not have been, but by the grace of the Gods, I was born at the right time in history.

There are so many things I am grateful for, even though I've already done Canadian Thanksgiving last month. lol I am grateful for my home, my friends, my family, my health, my skills, my talents, and even thankful for being gay, I really have to wonder if I would be anywhere near as able to look clearly at myself and be grateful if it weren't for the difficult years when I first came out.

I would also be very grateful for the Bearmen calendar.

Really, I would be Very grateful....

I'm Thankful that I got good family and frinde that accepted me for me and i got a good life thank god

I am thankful for my health. I am mostly thankful for the years I had with the love of my life who passed away in May from esophageal cancer. I am a cancer survivor and wish he were, too. I am thankful for my friends and family and all the love they share with me. I love my new friends I made while doing a play at the Long Beach Playhouse this year and am really thankful for getting a part. I am thankful for my home but hope to upgrade next year. I am thankful for sites like this so that I can meet new friends and maybe find someone to love some day even though I will go for sex now since my heart is still breaking over Warren my 10-years-younger fireman stud.

I am thankful that I have a good life, good health, good friends, and good job. Also, that I have a compassion for others less fortunate. The calendar with the young lads would be something to be thankful for, too. :)

I'm actually thankful for my divorce. It's been very hard,
but I know we're both happier now. We've both started
journeys of self discovery that we weren't able to do
when we were together. I'm thankful that we were able
to do this from a place of love, so much so that our
friends and families have been mutually supportive.
I'm thankful for a wonderful 10 year relationship with a
man I will always have love for.
/end sappiness/
I'll take a wild boys please. :o)

I have so much to be thankful for! I have a great career, an amazing dog (a rescued pit bull who is so smart, sweet and silly that he makes my hear happy every day!), and my health. That last one is what is most salient to me this year. I suffered 3 heart attacks in the span of 4 days in July of this year caused by a clot that formed in one of my arteries. I am thankful that it was caught, that they were able to resolve the problem, and that I have made a full recovery! I am also thankful for the heart attack because it has given me reason to slow down and enjoy life more. I'm thankful I can now call myself a *recovering* workaholic and that taking more time for myself has allowed me to find a little slice of happiness with a new beau, as well. It may sound strange to say that I'm thankful for a health crisis, but I am--I'm thankful for the opportunity to put everything in perspective, to reevaluate my priorities, and to come out the other side a better man for it!

A calendar of bear men would look great in my home office, and give me lots of opportunities to slow down even more while I enjoy the scenery. :)

I am thankful for the loved ones whom I could have lost but because of His kindness, continue to thrive despite life threatening ailment and the inevitable process of aging. I am also grateful for the opportunity to grow personally as I draw life's valuable lessons that unfold only when we confront the dark side of our earthly existence.

I am thankful for my two wonderful children. I raised them as a single father, now they are 18 and 20 they attribute much of their strength and culture to having had a gay father. We travel extensively, they have learned the true value of diversity.
I am thankful I made the choices I have and that my children see the value.

I'm thankful for my family, even tho they can drive me crazy at times. Having lost my dad at an adolescent age, I know the value of taking the time to say how you feel often, because u never know. For friends who are like family, who I've known or decades, gay and straight, who accept me for my strengths and weaknesses, I am appreciative of too.

Im thankful for the luck and health I've had, and for the blessings and favors.for a career I love, dogs I cherish, a home I have made more than it was....and kept, in these perilous times. And thankful for my optimistic outlook on the external factors that try to diminish our (collective) happiness.

Good year to everyone!

Glad dad was able to enjoy the 1st thanksgiving without mom. She died 5 weeks ago and he's been taking it really hard. He seemed to have a good day.

I am thankful for my roommate,he is a great guy...and is helping me through a rough patch..
My family and friends....
It is very easy to complain about what you are lacking....but I can tell you there is so much more to be thankful for.....

As always, I am thankful for my friends, who extend my "family of choice". I am thankful for my sister and her family, with whom I have reconnected in the past few years. I am also thankful for having a job with insurance (even though the job sucks, and I need a different one). I am thankful for the improvement in the job market and the economy, and optimistic that the improvement will continue. I give thanks for my health and for my sense of humor.

I am especially thankful for two things this year: a friend of mine cut his fingers off with a circular saw, and a very talented doctor reattached them. He is healing well, and I count this as a holiday miracle for which I am very thankful. Another friend of mine has a nerve disease (similar to Parkinson's) and he's been having a rough patch for a while, but he's getting his own apartment in Colorado and working on cleaning up his credit, and should be well positioned there.

I am thankful for hot daddies and for hot boys who think I'm a hot daddy :-)

Hope you all are as 'blessed' or 'lucky' (or however you express it) as I feel this year, and that you have a wonderful holiday season.


For tackling cancer, and beating the hell out of it! For my mom, for always being there!

I am thankful for all the new friends I have made, especially my Easton Mountain family. I am also thankful for finding a great trainer who has not only helped me find my physical strength but also my inner strength, and health! I cannot say Thank You enough for there few things, and the great things to come.

Send the Wild Boys, sports and boys, a yeah!!!

I am thankful i am alive. This had 2 strokes the only downfall is my riht side is a little week and cant use my right hand all that well.

I am thankful that I have grown up in this day and age. Growing up in a farming town wasn't horrible for me but I wasn't ever able to be myself. I moved to a slightly bigger town to go to college and I'm still here inching closer to completing my degree and moving to a bigger city to live my life to the fullest.

I know that I have it much easier than many men older than I had it and I am so very thankful for that. I created an account on here in early August this year and have made some incredible friends. With their help and support I was able to come out to my mother and brother just two months later in October. I am thankful for how my very conservative mother was able to eventually grasp and accept that I am gay since she had absolutely no idea. I am thankful to have such an awesome brother that immediately responded by saying that he will love me forever.

Finally, I am thankful for finally accepting myself this year and understanding that this is who I am. I would also be very thankful for the BearMen wall calendar as my walls are rather blank in my room.

I'm thankful that I am 25+ years hiv+, healthy, and sexy guys still find me attractive. Plus I am blessed with a family that loves and has supported me from the start -- they all knew I was gay before I was 2 years old! And the few friends I have left are ever closer to my heart.

I'm thankful for all the hot young studs who are attracted to guys my age. Their smooth, lithe, fresh bodies (or muscular if that's the case) send me to the moon. I'm thankful for young men who love the rush given when my tongue hits their magic buttons.

Send me the Wild Boys calendar.

I am thankful that I was able to retire with a pension that is enough to cover my expenses. And I am very grateful for the family and friends who are no longer around who were so important in my life. And I am thankful that I have a home and food to eat, and that I live in this incredible city of San Francisco. And I am very thankful for the friends and hot buddies who bring me so much comfort, and great sex, all year long. And please give a calendar to neverfail86 who is being so brave for us all by serving in the military.

I am thankful that as a gay man I had the opportunity to be a father to my two adopted daughters, now "all grown up". Being a Dad was the greatest gift this life has given me. I am eternally thankful for my kids!

I am most thankful for my amazing partner of 31 years (we just celebrated our anniversary as a couple with a long weekend in New Orleans). I am thankful that the state of Illinois let us finally get legal with a civil union this past June (I'd be even more thankful if we could have gotten married but it's a start!). I am also thankful for my loving family and for our two sweet cats.

If I am lucky enough to win, I'd like the BearMen calendar. Thank you.

I am thankful for having had wonderful parents, terrific brothers and their families (all of whom I am comfortably out to!), and especially for the 24 years of sharing I was able to enjoy with my beloved and giving late partner, Fred, who died from cancer in early 2009. But at this moment in time, I am MOST thankful for the new man in my life--my very special Bobby P!--who makes me feel whole again, whose wonderfully open and loving nature allows me to be just as kinky as I want (because he is, too!), and for the many things we seem to share. He gives me hope that the future will still be even better--something I wasn't sure I could believe anymore--and that there is still plenty of living to enjoy for this 63 yr. old Silver Daddy! Oh...and a calendar of hot BEARS from that Butch Bear collection....would make us BOTH very happy and horny as we start the new year together, pant, pant!! Thank you, boys!

I'm thankful for who am i and for everything basically

I am very thankful for family, friends and great relationships!

I very thankful for our military men and women who help and give of themselves even to the point of death to keep the rest of us all Americans free! And I am very thankful they can now be out in their jobs. I applaude them all and they deserve so much more!

Love to you all!

Some folks might get the wrong idea when they see the word "boy" in the image above especially if they are not gay and stumble on to it. Chat rooms on a gay chat site got dropped because the chat room was titled "DaddiesSons" or something like that. Theirs a lot of extreme censorship that is going around based on decisions made by straight folks when they should tend to their own corner of the Internet.

Hope is a good thing for sure and I've noticed that sometimes one persons hope is anothers reason to label that person who is just observing some tradition that is not in agreement with other cultural elements. People get labeled as barbarian sometimes when the people being labeled that way are actually good people with good intentions many times.

Their is a wave going around the planet that is based on the idea of regular people wanting to have more to say about how they live. For example a social services department loaded buses with the kids from a compound in Texas based on some particular dogma set up by the department and then a judge ruled that social services had overstepped their authority based on philosophical views of the government offices involved.
