Mr. Man, a curator of Hollywood male nude scenes, has released his top 10 picks for 2019.
The annual list pays homage to the best male nude segments in mainstream film and television. (For yesterday’s story on sister service Mr. Skin’s list of the top 10 female nude scenes of the year, click here.)
All top 10 male scenes can be viewed for free, in their entirety, at Mr. Man. (Registration is required and, needless to say, the videos are Not Safe For Work.)

5. Ryan O’Connell and Brian Jordan Alvarez in Special

He stars as a gay man with cerebral palsy who, in episode three, has a sex scene with a prostitute played by Alvarez. Jessica Hecht and Punam Patel also received Emmy noms for their performances, and the series itself was nominated for Outstanding Short Form Comedy or Drama Series. Netflix subscribers can see all eight episodes, each of which runs between 12 and 17 minutes, at Netflix.com/Special.
4. Billy Porter and Dyllon Burnside in Pose
In late 1980s and early 1990s New York City, Porter plays Pray Tell, a star of the ballroom culture scene who’s mentoring Burnside’s Ricky…in more ways than one.
