Pursuant to our recent article the top ten most beautiful women of NYC (an adjunct to Ms Alexa Winner’s top 22 most beautiful women of NYC) we started to think if there could be a list for the most beautiful formidable women of NYC, surely there would have to be one for the men of NYC. To be sure you are right, and thus with some degree of contemplation of what passes for hot, we sat down amongst ourselves and came up with our current list.
Traditionally what has made a man ‘hot,’ the word itself a brazen concubine, has rested on many definitions. From a Hollywood perspective it would often refer to his screen presence/persona, fame and screen lust factor. Equally in society, what makes a man hot with respect to his peers is his grooming, manners, wealth, status, and of course his society connections. From the high school cheer squad perspective’s what made a man hot was his physique, his ability to ‘score,’ reputation in the locker room (yes dears, we too must indulge in such fancy) and the size of his uhm car.
From a fashionista’s point of view what made a man hot has always been his style, grace, manners and how well he dared to dress to impress. And from a gold digger’s point of view (who can ever ignore the resilient gold digger?) if we are to judge the recent behavior of bunny playmate Crystal Harris (Drizzle Embarrass according to the chipmunks that we keep hidden under our bed sheets ) in concert with her recent nuptials with playboy founder Hugh Hefner, what makes a man hot according to the ‘gold digger’ is so often the size of his wealth, and his degree of power (after all since when hasn’t power not been an aphrodisiac?).
And finally from a media whore’s perspective (and my lord there are so many of you out there…blah) what makes a man hot in your eyes is the number of times the bitch has been mentioned by the press. The more sightings, substantiated (or not) rumors, page 6 appearances, PMC photo op validations and your collective tongues drizzle unbound. So of course you lot have been weighed in too.
That said with all these wonderful and alluring determining traits of what makes a man hot (of course part of us even listened to the sensitive side of our nature and gave deference to a man’s capacity to listen, be sensitive and support their kindred friends- an often under appreciated quality in men that some gossip rags would like us to believe most men don’t have) we have carefully listed our top ten hot men of NYC of 2010. To those men who made our cut, congratulations, and to those who didn’t please don’t send us hate mail (like some of you women did when you found out you didn’t make Scallywag’s top ten list) and for those of you who did make it- please don’t badger me as to why you didn’t make it to number one or why such and such outranked you- just be happy you were even in the back of our minds you bitches. Now- please proceed to read on and find out your fate. – love Scallywag.
