The 2010 Festival of Sublime Ass

Aka, men's Olympic figure skating.






















And then there's the incomparable, ambisexual Johnny Weir. A bit on the willowy side, but hey, he's got ass. Impossible to be a serious figure skater without having ass, just like it's impossible to be serious speed skater without having thighs that could crack boulders.
Oh, how I've been sighing!

LOL!

I am so glad you posted this!! I was watching the skating last night and I thought "Wow, do those boys have nice butts!" I found myself watching bottoms instead of jumps and footwork.

I'm not as thrilled with the boulder-cracking thighs, tho'. Maybe they'd be good for the pounding needed to
satisfy ice skater ass...

Somebody should write a story about that (KZ).

Tam said...

Yeah, skaters have the best butts. There was a little vignette about our speedskater Wotherspoon and he was saying "My lung capacity is ..., my blood pressure when I race is ..., my thighs are 70 cm." Ack. 100 cm is just over three feet. He could crush your head with those things. Same with mogul skiers, they said their thighs are 40% bigger than most people. That doesn't really do it for me. I like them a little sleeker.

Chris said...

Holy crap, and I thought cyclists had scary thighs...

*must get back in shape so I can hit the trails and admire the sexy cycling boys this summer*

Glad you're glad, Wren. I just had to celebrate the glories of man-ass after watching the skaters last night. (I know what you mean about being distracted!) And, yeah, I think a hard-thighs-and-bubble-butt couple would make for one steamy m/m romance...or pornfest.

Hell, I ain't fussy! :-)

K. Z. Snow said...

The monster thighs scare me too, Tam and Chris -- especially when they're on women. O_O I still love me some Apollo Ohno, though. (What if the Olympics drive me to start writing fanfic? Yikes!)

I have to admit that I'd never noticed how delicious men's figure skater arses really were.

Thank you for drawing this to my attention, KZ.

K. Z. Snow said...

The ass/arse finals are tonight, Jen. I for one can't wait to see all that poetry in motion. ;-)

Jenre said...

Unfortunately, I'd have to stay up until 1am to watch the skating. Hmmmm, maybe I could set my box to record it.

wren boudreau said...

Jen, I'd say it's worth it to record the finals. I'll be recording them just so I can fast forward through the commercials!

Jeanne Barrack said...

I record the skates. I love figure skating!!!

K. Z. Snow said...

And Evan won! Yes! Mr. Tall, Dark, Handsome, and Elegant...with loooong fingers!

If only Johnny Weir hadn't been robbed. He deserved much higher marks. :-(

Jeanne Barrack said...

And what a performance, Evan had! And such graciousness and dignity.
Plushenko really sank in my estimation by saying that men's skating shouldn't be just dancing!
Ice Dancing is the only figure skate that requires skaters to excell not once, not twice but three times! I sincerely doubt he could have performed with such technical skill and such precision during the compulsory portion as his fellow Russian ice dancers did. If Ice dancing is so much less a sport, then tell me how ice dancers can perform with skill, strength and precision into their 30s while most figure skaters are hanging up their skates!
Sorry, but for the first time in many years, they actually showed the compulsory portion in prime time and I was bowled over by the skaters.

K. Z. Snow said...

I agree, Jeanne. Plushenko implying that excellence in figure skating is reduceable to a single well-executed jump only makes him look ignorant, not to mention bloated with sour grapes. Evan definitely outshone him -- both on and off the ice.
