speaking of man-titty covers

I realized after getting through about 40 of the posts over at DA on the topic of man-titty covers that although I don't pick up clinch covered books, I am a total hypocrite because I am about to post a hot guy photo and that's pretty much the entire blog entry for today. Oh the cognative dissonance! Oh the horror, oh the...oh what the hell!

Thanks to Kristie(J) I am even more obsessed. lol. This picture joins the ranks of other classics like "train scene" or "Chest" and will be known from this day forward as "white shirt". Simple, clean, elegant and to the point. Just like the photo itself and more importantly, just like the man himself. Yeah, it's late and I'm tired and I just want to share the Richard Armitage goodness because things like this should be shared and not hoarded. So enjoy.



pssst, North and South...you need to see it!

Oh Sula~viva la man titty! I tried to comment on that post yesterday, over at DA.But they drive me nutso... I may not like some of the erotic romance covers, but I like my clinchy loveydovey romance ones. I don't see a need for a change in the status quo. If the books sell, the authors make money, the readers are happy, WHY do we need respectibility from folks we don't hang out with anyway....it's ridiculous. I just don't get the need to change to accomodate someone else's idea of respectibility. That's hypocritical. Not lusting over the man titty. Anyway: Respectibility is overrated.

If respectability means giving up pictures like the one above, give me shameful man-titty!! *g*

In more seriousness though, I'm still a closeted romance reader. I don't mind plunking down a stack of clinch covers at the library, but wouldn't be seen at the school cafeteria reading one over lunch. Like I said, my own hypocrisy is causing me a headache. lol.

But in any event, I'm going to keep staring at this Richard picture because it's too damn beautiful. :-)

I do the same thing. We all do. Nothing like showing up to my old job at the church with Gabrielle's Woman in my bag....

Ah good old Gabriel's Women. Bring it to confession!!
As to white shirt... imagine what he is hiding under that shirt???
Those eyes, that scruff... I am running out of words to describe this man. I don't even use adjectives, only nouns, like shirt, train, cravat.
How about WET!!!????
thump
thump
drool

I feel hypocritical too! I did comment on the thread about how much I hate the man-titty/clinch covers yet I've recently put up pics of Keith Urban - 'cause he's hot, but then again he was a new discovery and RA - 'cause he's hawt, but then again one could say it was practice - but *shaking it off and getting back to topic*
I still don't like 'wm on book covers.

I like the man titty covers even though I kind of look around in the bookstore to see if anyone is watching me as I drool.
It seems there are more and more of these covers on the market, rather than the old half naked women with heaving busoms in a clutch with her man.
