#1 Olympics heart throb: Kohei Uchimura

Summer Olympics is not just about athletics, it’s also about hot athletes. My favorite is Japanese world champion gymnast Kohei Uchimura, recently profiled and photographed by the New York Times magazine.

Kohei is incredibly strong, precise, and focused. He’s the first male gymnast to win three consecutive world all around titles (2009, 2010, 2011). In Beijing he won two silver medals.

And his visual style combines stubble for macho toughness with tall helmet hair that screams mom and eyebrows that have been yanked and angled within a few hairs of their existence. Swoon.

I am selfishly wishing he wins plenty of gold medals, and becomes a regular image of corporate marketing in Japan. I’d much prefer to see young Kohei than skinny Ichiro. Maybe that’s just me?

Who will you be stalking this Olympics?

Japan’s most famous gay adult video star, seen in Ni Chome

On the day I got my new digital camera, I saw Koh Masaki, Japan’s most famous gay adult movie star, being interviewed by two drag queens “live” at Alamas Cafe in Shinjuku Ni Chome. Immediately the camera purchase seemed like a good idea ; )

On the sidewalk, I chatted with other fans of his body of work. Whether natural or enhanced, Koh has several unique talents.
