It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a non-gay bar never more resembles a gay bar than when a big soccer game is being broadcast. And, boy, were we deceived this weekend. Euro Cup 2012 had its final matches, with Italy and Spain playing for the championship on Sunday, and Spain emerging victorious. Hooray for the Spanish soccer team, blah blah, but what’s really important is taking this moment to celebrate the beauty of Spanish men.
Ey! Magateen, the self-proclaimed “most exciting magateen in the world” (and no, “magateen” is not a Spanish word, but a pun on the native lisp), gives us just such a tribute. For their Summer 2012 issue, photographer Xevi Muntané took artfully erotic shots of young male models in the publication’s homeland. It’s top on our list of gay collectibles now, given its opportune timing and limited-edition run of 1000 copies. They aren’t selfish with the shots, though–a lot are shared on their blog, and most as Internet-friendly animated .GIFs.
As they say, Spain is different! Let us now praise Spanish men.
