I have a friend who yells at me every time he smells me. He prefers I let my natural scent run free instead of wearing a scented deodorant. The problem is, I get pretty darn stinky when I don't wear it. But I get where he's coming from, as I too enjoy the nice natural scent of man. Apparently the straight world is getting in on the pheromone fun too. So let's open up the discussion, do you prefer your men fragrance free or like them synthetically scented?

I will say one thing, when it comes to licking pits, freshly washed is the only way to go. Whether it's deodorant in your mouth or the stank that sticks to your tongue, it makes for a mouthful of yuck.

Given how much we talk about masculinity around these parts, I thought you'd all be interested in a new documentary from Super Size Me's Morgan Spurlock. Mandsome takes a look at everything from men's grooming to the masculine ideals many of us in the gay community still use for comparison.

"From America's greatest beardsman, to Morgan Spurlock's own mustache, Executive Producers Will Arnett, Jason Bateman and Ben Silverman bring us a hilarious look at men's identity in the 21st century. Models, actors, experts and comedians weigh in on what it is to be a man in a world where the definition of masculinity has become as diverse as a hipster's facial hair in Williamsburg. The hilarious follicles of men's idiosyncratic grooming habits are thoroughly combed over as men finally take a long hard look in the mirror."

Now I love me some Arrested Development peeps, but I'm curious what, if any, attention will be paid to the gay community in all this? The trailer seems focused on the emergence of the metrosexual, a trend that got a lot of media attention not too long ago. The film premieres at this month's Tribeca Film Festival, so I'll wait to hear if the gay angle is addressed, but what I really want is a documentary that gives equal weight to what it means to be a man in both worlds.

What do you think? Will we get some insightful answers from this documentary or will it be more of a "hey, that straight guy...

Welcome to our first ever Daddyhunt Peer Series! We'll be issuing 5 questions to guys across the globe to learn more about our mature brethren in an effort to entertain, enlighten, and hopefully inspire. First up, film maker Casper Andreas.

Who are you and what do you do?
My name is Casper Andreas. I grew up in Sweden but I live in New York. I'm a film director, writer and actor. My latest film "Going Down in LA-LA Land" is about to open in theaters, starting with New York this Friday (April 20th).

Tell us about Going Down in La La Land.
It's a dark comedy, or dramedy if you want, about a struggling actor in Los Angeles who ends up getting involved in all kind of shady stuff to survive in Hollywood.

What do you know today that you wish you knew 20 years ago.
That Apple stock should be bought and held on to.

If you could part one piece of wisdom on today's gay youth, what would it be?
Don't waste your life away on stuff you really don't want to do, or worry to much about stuff you can't change. Life is too short -- it needs to be lived with passion!

Describe your perfect day for us.
I have to spend at least a few days doing something creative. So unless that means shooting a movie, it's sitting a few hours at Starbucks working on my new script. It also involves some time at the gym, and a nice dinner with good friends. Let's throw in a massage too! All that writing makes my neck very tense.

We're definitely feeling the heat here in NYC today, so why not continue with some incredibly hot and surprisingly stirring drawings by artist N.M. Rosario. That's his rendering of X-Men fave Beast, aka Hank McCoy, with Iceman. I've always been an X-Men fan, but Wolverine was always my favorite flavor of sexy mutant. Since seeing his version though has me reconsidering. He's got a whole series of drawings (and more of beefy Hank) over at his Deviant Art profile.

Is it possible to be turned on this much by a pencil drawing?

What cartoon studs get you going?

Why can't all political scandals be this hot? The video for daddybear Matt Zarley's new single "Trust Me" features an all too familiar story. Lucky for us, the sexy hunk at the center of this video's story is one worth watching.

Play Ball

As if we needed a reason to play with our balls, this clever new Peruvian campaign encourages men to take it one step further. The ads feature men in their underwear with different play things screen printed on the crotch in an effort to get more men to check themselves for testicular cancer. It's definitely an attention getting campaign, and since most of us spend a good amount of time with our hands down their anyway, a great reminder to check yourself whenever possible.

Here's a handy "how to" guide, so be sure to check tonight if you haven't in a while. Better yet, grab a friend and let them lend a helping hand.

They say New York is a watered down, commercialized version of what it used to be. No longer gritty or seedy, the city's been cleaned up and for some that means they've taken all our fun away. The Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art has an exhibit opening this week, The Piers: Art and Sex Along the NY Waterfront, that harkens back to that overtly sexual time. As a youngin' who never got to experience "the real" New York City, these images make me wish I had been around back then. But then I'm reminded of the devastation caused by HIV/AIDS during that time period and consider myself lucky. Maybe in an ideal world where disease does not exist and time travel does could I enjoy the seemingly sexual freedom of those days.

Queerty has plenty more pics to flip through so head on over and take a look at the rest or visit the exhibit running April 4th - May 10th.

After reading Patti Smith's Just Kids, I'm fascinated by New York City during that time period. I'd love to hear more about the piers and NYC in general in the 1970s and 80s if anyone has stories to share in the comments below.
