The prayers of gay men all over the world were answered this week, when naked photos of Olympian swimmer Michael Phelps were released by ESPN as part of it 2014 Body Issue. Let me go on the record and state that I don't find Michael to be a particularly good-looking guy with his big teeth and funny ears but something about him works and that's the ease of his personality and that irresistible smile. His body with its long developed muscles is absolutely incredible: his ass and bulging outer thigh muscles are worthy of a Michelangelo sculpture. I do wish ESPN had shot a few photos of his amazing ass head-on, instead of from the side, but I'm sure editorial decisions were heavily negotiated. I've uploaded the video interview with Michael Phelps at the end of the feature.
