In a recent report published in the American Journal of Public Health, Boston researchers have concluded that gay men are leaner than straight men. Quel surpris. They stated that gay men were 50 percent less likely to become obese when compared to heterosexual males. Specifically they found that 14% of gay men were obese while 21% of straight men were.

Conversely, the same study found the complete opposite with women when comparing lesbians and straight women. They found that gay women were more than twice as likely as straight counterparts to be obese. To be exact, 26% of gay women were obese, while only 17% of straight women were.

Esther Rothblum, a San Diego State University professor of women studies gave an explanation on the findings:

With the World Cup starting this coming weekend, from June 11th to July 11th, I thought I would highlight one hot soccer/football player each day. As you may recall, I did this over the course of the Winter Olympics this year, so I thought I’d do the same – except instead of snow we’ll be focusing on balls. Soccer balls. Soccer players. You know what I mean.


Date of Birth: January 19th, 1986
Height: 179 cm
Shirt Number: 15
Position: Midfielder

First up, say bon journo to 24 year old Claudio Marchisio of Italy. This Italian stallion plays midfield during the game, but unfortunately I don’t think he plays midfield with his sexuality. Marchisio, who has a sleeve tattoo on his arm, is married to his gorgeous wife Roberta and the two of them have a son. On June 1st, Marchisio was named in the 23-man squad for Italy for the upcoming World Cup.

Marchisio on the road…

Earlier this year, Marchisio was one of five Italian soccer players that got to participate in one of the latest Dolce & Gabbana Calcio underwear ads. HOT! I highly recommend that you check out the “Making Of” video…

During a press conference promoting the upcoming FIFA World Cup, superstar athlete Cristiano Ronaldo was thrown a curve ball. Typically he’s questioned everything sports-related, but this time he was posed with a more serious question. The very heterosexual footballer was asked for his opinion on the Portugal’s legalization of same-sex marriage. Talk about a hot-button topic. Here’s what Cristiano said:

“The Portuguese man that I am, I try to keep informed about what is happening in my country… I know the law was passed and the comment it deserves is that we must respect the choices made by anyone, because, after all, all citizens should have the exact same rights and responsibilities.”

Despite what it looks like with the torrential downpour outside, summer is on the way. What are people most worried about? What their abs look like when they take their shirt off. Immediately you think situps, crunches, go, go, go. Well, as you’ll hear from Mike, there’s more to it than that. He’ll give you a bit of insight into that, as well as demonstrate his Top 3 Favorite Ab Exercises.

Nu Age LipoLaser

In: Charge It, Sports & Health, Tommy D

I’m not really a firm believer in anything cosmetic. I don’t really get why people under 35 (ok 30 for you gays) would get anything done. Going under the knife, Botox, Restilyne any of that. So when I was given an opportunity to try out Nu Age’s LipoLaser, I was a bit skeptical and kind of standoffish. But it was arranged so I went to check it out.

When I saw down with Alecia, the first question I asked was “What is the deal with this LipoLaser” So she broke it down for me.

LipoLaser while sharing the same name as Liposuction, in my opinion is really nothing alike. It’s kind of a “for lack of a better term” scenario. So I tried it out. Here’s what happens.

TRX: Make Your Body Your Machine

In: Patrick, Sports & Health

The past couple months, I had been working out with a trainer, as you may or may not know. For the second half of our time training together, he introduced me to TRX. TRX is training using these suspension cables, whereby you are able to give yourself an entire workout from head to toe using these cables. Normally, I don’t always get into these type of workout tools – you know the type you see on an infomercial. But TRX is actually incredible. I could actually see myself getting one of these and training with TRX on a regular basis.

A lot of the time, when you are working out a particular part of the body with the TRX exercises, you are also using other parts of your body as well, such as your core. This allows you to get a more efficient, full body workout in, in less time. You are also able to increase the level of difficulty with each exercise by making modifications to the exercise as you get better at it, or by increasing the number of reps or speed of a particular exercise. The other thing I like about TRX is that you can workout anywhere with it, provided you have something to suspend the cables from. That means you can take these cables and workout outside on a sunny day, and get a killer full body workout, while catching some rays (wearing SPF of course).

NHL Stanley Cup: FINALS!

In: Sports & Health, Topher

Well, that was a short round, wasn’t it? Chicago swept the Sharks with relative ease, and goalie annoyer Dustin Byfuglien had a couple of important goals (one per game) including three game winners and the overtime goal in game 3. Philadelphia showed Montreal who this year’s all-star goalie is by knocking them off in five games which included THREE shutouts. THREE! Michael Leighton is a monster!

I faired a little better with my predictions last round, going 2 for 2. It’s a little bittersweet that Montreal is out. I still hate them for knocking out the Penguins, so I’m glad to see them gone, but to have Philly in the finals is just weird. Not that they don’t deserve it. They’ve played some amazing playoff hockey so far. They stuck it out while some of their top players were out with injuries, but now they’re back with almost full strength.

The Williams sisters are widely known for their ferocious on-court play, but they are also known to make the headlines for other reasons. Whether it’s Serena throwing tantrums on the court, or Venus dramatically resigning from matches, the sisters are great for giving the tennis world a much needed dose of drama.

While the world’s top players have congregated to Roland Garros and making headlines for their gameplay, the elder of the Williams sisters is attracting media for a completely different reason. The tennis star made her 2010 French Open debut, by wearing a Victoria Secret-inspired tennis outfit. The black and red lacy lingerie themed ensemble had the Parisian crowd OOH’ing and LA’ing all over the place. Even though it looked she was ready for bedtime or some sexy late night action, she still romped her opponent Patty Schnyder in straight sets.
