Alongside gay Atlanta’s 56 man-candiest moments of the year, the daily Morning Fix looks back fondly on the most popular abs, chests, bulges and biceps that made 2012 so sexy.


Danell Leyva is why we love the Olympics


Even when he was just a contender for the U.S. gymnastics team, Danell Leyva got us psyched for the 2012 summer Olympics with his bare-chested pics, making him a sure bet to win over the hearts of gay men. View the full gallery. After he made the team, we took a second stab at Leyva nearly nude, and then a third round of sexting. Of course, we ogled all five U.S. Men’s Gymnastics jocks, too.


Olympic jocks serve sizzling summer heat


Leyva earned his very own spot, but the Morning Fix was obsessed with Olympic jocks this summer. For two glorious weeks in London, we gave love to dozens of athletes, including diving studs Tom Daley (photo) and David Boudia, gymnast Louis Smith naked, swimmer Ryan Lochte and decathlete Trey Hardee. The Olympics kept giving until wrestlers bid farewell to Olympic bulges.


The many muscles of of Adam Ayash


We love his infamous biceps, but there’s so much more to enjoy with Adam Ayash. The muscular model packs a pair of sexy briefs in a way that leaves little to the imagination. View the full gallery.


Jockstrap Cowboy Colby Melvin


It’s the eyes. The abs and the booty don’t hurt. But the eyes of Southern guy Colby Melvin draw you into his world of sexy. Playing with his buff friends in a music video spoof doesn’t hurt, either. View the full gallery.


Assets of Quinn Christopher Jaxon


There’s nothing quite like a sexy, slinky Andrew Christian carwash video to get you some notice. Not that Quinn Christopher Jaxon needed the help, but it certainly doesn’t hurt to see all of his assets soaking wet. View the full gallery.


Ben cohen shows off his new briefs


Sexy rugger Ben Cohen didn’t show them off during his Atlanta stop, but he’s got them: a new line of underwear from trunks to tighty whities. Now you can finally buy the anti-bullying fundraiser and certified cuddle bear’s briefs. View the full gallery. Maybe Atlanta likes him best as Pride marshal, Bestest Gay Ally or drunken sailor. Then again, maybe it’s just that stripping video.


Ginger snap! It’s sexy Seth Fornea


“Rough God” Seth Fornea wowed us during Joining Hearts Weekend in Atlanta, so when we heard this muscled ginger hottie let it almost all hang out for talented photographer Rick Day, we went on a mission to find photographic evidence. View the full gallery. It’s easy to see why he topped Atlanta’s Hunks of Joining Hearts.


Matthew Mitcham and his Funky Trunks


Another Olympian who earned his own spot. Matthew Mitcham didn’t do so well in London, but we still can’t get enough of the 2008 Olympic gold medalist. Good thing that he likes to give us more. The gay Aussie diver splashes around in his newest Funky Trunks swimwear shoot. He returned in funky briefs later, too. View the full gallery.


Benjamin Godfre plays with his hose


Playfully sexy Morning Fix favorite Benjamin Godfre amps up his appeal with a full-service hosedown. Shirtless, with abs aplenty and biceps bulging, he spends more time spraying himself than washing a car. And that’s the way we like it. View the full gallery.


Sean Patrick Davey’s ginger appeal


There’s something about ginger hottie Sean Patrick Davey. He’s built tough and sexy, which helped make him one of our top Morning Fix posts last year. He’s back and looking better than ever. View the full gallery.


Fawning over Bryan Hawn


When he’s not playing ball, Hawn is in the kitchen serving up a delicious helping of booty. He’s got junk in that trunk and we appreciate every other bit that’s packed onto the 6-foot, 185-pound stud. View the full gallery.


The Hunks of Atlanta Pride


Hunks in briefs, daddy hunks, hunks with hats, porn hunks and more. They all made their mark on Atlanta Pride. View the full gallery. Also check out the Hunks of Joining Hearts, Hunks of Mister Hotlanta Softball, Atlanta’s Hunks of gay Halloween and the Hunks of Atlanta Santa Speedo Run.
