Just Because: Felix Auger-Aliassime

'Hopefully I can put smiles on faces, I can inspire, I can motivate, and I think that's, for me... even more rich than anything else that I can do on the tennis court.'

Sadly, Auger-Aliassime’s hopes of playing in the U.S. Open final were wiped away when he lost in straight sets last Friday to second-seeded Daniil Medvedev of Russia.  That didn't mean the 21 year old Canadian didn't make a big impression.

The media loves the young tennis player from Montreal, as does the camera.  That is clear from these hot shots of Felix in his Nike briefs from photographer Max Gao.  Although he didn't get to play in the US open, he did get to play while in New York.  Some of you may have spotted Max at The Met Gala. 

Martin Kove: ACTORS & Skin

I've never really watched Dancing With The Stars.  There were certainly a few seasons that I tuned in for a few episodes because of one the male dancers (Gleb, Valentin ) or one of the 'celebrities' cast.  Usually, after a few weeks I get bored and usually tune out.  I do however, always like seeing who they find to include each season.

I'm sure it's getting harder and harder to find celebrities willing to get on board.  With Brian Austin Green on this season, there aren't really many cast members of Beverly Hills 90201 left!  Thankfully there wasn't a Sean Spicer type included this year, but including Olivia Jade is consistent with the shows desire to grab headlines, even negative ones. 

One of the interesting inclusions this season for me, was the addition of actor Martin Kove.  Although the 75 year actor has worked constantly over the years, he's had somewhat of a career renaissance of late due to his role in Netfilix's Cobra Kai. I've yet to see Cobra Kai, and also have to acknowledge that I've never seen any of The Karate Kid films.  I'm sure I'm not alone, but I was never drawn to tune in

I mostly know Kove from the flash of hairy chest in the opening credits from Cagney and Lacey.  I was too young to watch the show when it was on, I was usually being sent to bed when my mom sat down to watch.  I remember however, enjoying those brief few seconds of Kove's chest before heading off to dreamland. 

Code R (1977)

Year later, I saw a few episodes of the show in repeats.  Cagney & Lacey was definitely a female driven show.  It was interesting to look back at the role reversal with Kove's character. Most male driven shows of the 80's had a female cast member who was sexualized, and put in a bathing suit for the opening credits.  In Cagney & Lacey, it was Kove's character that was that was often shown shirtless and sexualized.  Not a difficult task given the actor's sex appeal.

Cagney & Lacey (1982-1988)

Last year, I finally got around to catching Kove's nude scene in Paul Morrissey's 1971 film Women In Revolt.  If you haven't seen the film, Kove's nudity is quite a pleasant surprise.  Kove is fully naked with a clothed Holly Woodlawn. Morrissey cast the three foremost drag Superstars in Andy Warhol's The factory, including Woodward.

I attempted to find an interview with Kove discussing his role in the film, but couldn't find any.  I did find one with Holly Woodlawn which may explain why Kove seems to have kept quiet about his role in the film.  Check out much more of Kove, and the nude scene on the NEXT PAGE HERE:

The Preeminent: Philip Fusco

Philip by Hans Fahrmeyer

'Philip Fusco is an Internet sensation. There have been others, but there is something about Phil that I think will ensure he remains in the lime light for many years to come'

Philip by Balthier Corfi

The quote above comes from a piece I wrote celebrating Philip Fusco's birthday back in 2009.  I think I first discovered Philip's imagery through his work with photographer Hans Fahrmeyer for Vista Video.  Like so many, I was immediately drawn to Philip's work.  Sure in part it was his incredibly hot body, but Phil possessed something more...

Philip by Michael Hallenbeck

Philip has an amazing body that he works hard at to keep in shape. Beyond just his perfect physique however, is his face and eyes. There is something about them that draw you in. There are many great bodies on the net, but you need more than that to hold a viewers attention and  Philip Fusco knows this well.  It's the reason he's still able to draw in both old and new fans and admirers of his work.

So many of the models who were popular 10 years ago have quickly come and gone.  Some by choice, but  many, because interest simply waned.  One of the reasons I think Philip has remained so popular is his ability to connect with those who enjoy his work. Phil has also knows his audience and how to keep them interested. Not only does he continue to work with great artists to create new and exciting imagery, Philip works equally hard at communicating and connecting with viewers.

One of the most recent ways Philip has found to connect is through his OnlyFans. Philip has been working diligently to bring those who join regular updates, new content and boundary pushing imagery to satisfy his viewers and keep them coming back for more. 

I asked Philip about why he deiced to start an OnlyFans and also to answer my FH Favorites of Favorites questionnaire.  Philip also proved some of his favorite shots from his recent shoots.  I of course also had to include a few favorites of my own!

'I knew about OnlyFans for years and always wondered about the platform. One day I opened it up and impulsively decided to make one. '

'My fans can expect to see everything. I don't hold back at all on my page. I show everyone what they want to see. I always interact a lot with everyone. I do host weekly live chats with everyone. I answer every DM personally, and I make fresh totally nude content all the time, I also post stuff from photoshoots, that I wouldn't be able to post on any other social media site.'
