Mackenzie Astin: Bisexual-Inclusive
John Astin and Patty Duke, younger brother of Sean Astin, since the 1980s. His biggest claim to fame then was a starring role on The Facts of Life (1985-88), about four girls in a private boarding school.
By the time he hit the series, the girls had graduated and were working in a boutique, Over Our Heads. He played Andy Moffett, an orphan adopted by end-of-series lead Beverly (Cloris Leachman).
During the 1990s, he grew hard, hairy, and rather gaunt, as he tried to distance himself from his gay-coded teen years with macho hetero-roles: Iron Will (1994), about a dogsled competition; the Western Wyatt Earp (1994); Ernest Hemingway's wartime buddy in In Love and War (1996).
Out as bisexual, Mackenzie is married to a woman, and a gay ally.

10,000 Naked Men, Part 3: Punks to Urinals
Punks and Chavs. Emos, scene kids, beatnicks, gang bangers, mods and rockers, various bad boys with beards, blue hair, mohawks, pierced tongues, tats, and enormous beneath-the-belt gifts.
Rednecks and Cowboys. Farm boys, country boys. anyone wearing a feed store cap, standing next to a tractor, listening to country-western music, or asking "Y'all wanna climb up to the barn loft?"
Sleeping. You're asleep, having an erotic dream, and the covers start to tent. Or you kick the covers off, giving your buddy a full view. He thoughtfully takes a picture and posts it on the internet for thousands of strangers to admire. If only he included your telephone number, your date requests would skyrocket.
Snow. I never take my shirt off outside when the temperature is under 70, and rarely until it reaches 80. There's something sexy about a guy who walks around in the buff when it's cold enough to be snowy. And exhibits no discomfort. Or shrinkage.
Suits. Nazarenes required men to wear suits to church, three times a week, but since leaving the Nazarenes, I've worn suits maybe once or twice a year. Guys who wear them all the time are extremely sexy. Especially when they show you their equipment while still wearing the suit.
Urinals. Guys whose friends snap their picture just as they are pulling it out at the urinal. I also have some of guys doing more than that.
Vintage. Old black and white photos, some Victorian porn, but mostly guys from my parents' and grandparents' generation hanging around nude.
Such photos are very rare. In those days photo developing services usually rejected male nudity, so if you took a nude selfie, a camera-buff friend had to develop it for you. And you'd be too embarrassed to let it survive for your heirs to scan and put on the internet.
