He's a hottie....Amputee, former Marine enjoys second career as fitness model
Double takes are nothing unusual around Alex Minsky, but not because of this war veteran’s prosthetic leg.
His tattooed, finely chiseled body often gets a second look – along with a blush or two – for how good he looks in his skivvies.
The former Marine-turned-model works out twice a day – a grueling maintenance schedule – but nothing compared to what Minsky, 24, experienced before reaching this point in his life.
Four years ago, he lost part of his right leg, and nearly his life, in a roadside explosive in Afghanistan.
“It did look very grim. I had a Stage 3 brain injury,” he told TODAY’s Tamron Hall. “I was in a coma for 47 days.”
I can deal with the amputation but the tats are a deal breaker
Class 3 Brain Injury. But he was marine so he wasn't using that part of his body anyway, so this worked out very well for him.
I'm with R2. He looks like trailer trash.
One legged rough trade but I would date him.
There used to be a thing for straight amputee porn back in the early '80s. There was an amputee (female) named "Long Jeanne Silver" who did things with her stump. Haven't seen much of that lately, and never in gay porn.
Very bad tats everywhere. I like tats when it looks like the person put some thought into how they would accentuate their looks. Others just get big tats everywhere that detract from their looks. That's this guy.
Having "Don't laugh" right over the penis doesn't bode well.
R5= also trash.
Judging by R1's link, I think it's safe to say we'll be seeing him in gay amputee porn soon.
All those tatoos...Pre or post amputation? There's some psychology there...
Those tats! Gads! A circus sideshow will hire him.
R3 is hilarious.
Tattoos are vile. It's such a shame that he has so many; they distract from his cute face.
Handsome guy, but those tats are simply vile.
I think his tats are beautiful.
I think I read he suffered some burns, so they may be covering those up.
Seem a male photographer discovered this guy. Wonder just how straight that photographer is. Classic homoerotic visions
Those tattoos make him look like disease-ridden scum.
Ugh! Another hot body ruined by that skanky ink shit.
I'm not usually a fan of that many tattoos, but I think he is gorgeous, and if he's masking burns or injuries, I think he's making something beautiful out of pain.
Go on with your hot ass, Jarhead!
I wouldn't be fucking the tattoos. He's hot and a stud. Tight fucking ass too.
More of a nottie than a hottie.
Tattoos fucking suck.
For R6, yes, there is gay amputee porn. Link absolutely, positively NOT safe for work, or a lot of other places.
Another human freak show. Get in line mister-mister.
Actually it's pretty fucking hot and nasty.
Next stop Rentboy!
Please stop talking about tattoos. We get it. Some like them, some don't. Is there anything else to really say?
The tattoos don't bother me so much except for the one that says "Don't Laugh" - why on earth would you put that there?
That hot desertmeat AMPU-TEASE has Momma's mussy steaming like a canister of SARIN GAS!
I've jerked off twice already to that filthy porn link at r24.
god help me...
I love that you bumped this thread just to let us know, R31. Thank you.
He's sexy, but he's not going to get much fitness modeling work with those tatts. They HATE tatts in fitness photos.
R28, it is more possible to "stop talking about" his amputated leg than his tattoos. They take up too much of his body to be ignored. And I doubt he wants people to stop talking about them. People get them done because they crave the attention.
I don't like a man with too many muscles.
His tattoos are laugh out loud ridiculous.
Porn is the only place for him.
There was a report about him on Inside Edition yesterday, but they didn't feature any bulges, outlines or cock shots, not even with that little red banner they regularly place over female naughty bits.
Imagine how great he'd look without the tattoos, or even if he'd known when to stop? It's a damn shame. But, good luck to him.
Ha ha R31! Glad to know I'm not the only sick fuck that nutted to that video this am.
His body is amazing, but it's not the right look (not enough vasculature and tightness) for fitness work. And he's also covered up a lot of real estate with tattoos.
And the tattoos are hideous. Roses and gravesites with skulls. He's a trashy moron with no taste what so ever.
Why even bother working out when your body is ruined by garbage tats? Some guys do well in choosing tats that make them hotter. This guy is clueless.
He's a sweetie-pie, and an admitted narcissist. We're Facebook friends (along with 1,000s of others, of course).
But we did have a little interaction, before he got real famous, and he is a sweetie who did not seek this out, but now embraces his "mo fans."
You know, he had to completely relearn how to speak, eat, walk and live after his coma and injuries.
You queens are predictably vicious, judgmental and cruel.
It's rather pathetic, considering how you post your inane hangnail pathetic mini-problems on here is if they were the next Wagner opera.
This guy got fuckin' blown up!
Get a fuckin' clue!
[quote]This guy got fuckin' blown up!
Yes. He joined a war. Became a warrior. He could have stayed home. He wasn't drafted.
Yes, 44. You have a firm grasp of the obvious.
Why not start another thread diminishing fire and police workers, too? They all could just have chosen office jobs, after all.
Yes: how dare people criticize someone r43 knows! Don't they know he is off limits???
Sorry--how did R44 diminish anyone? He was stating a fact.
Get a clue, you twits.
One of R44's prior comments:
"More of a nottie than a hottie. Tattoos fucking suck."
Ewww. Poor people.
YOU MAKE ME SICK
So fucking what, R48 R45 R43? Tattoos are ugly. Deal with it.
Boo fucking hoo, R50. I suppose you think someone who joins the military is a "hero." They're victims is what they are. Which is sad, but he didn't get drafted. He chose to go to war. He's lucky -- or maybe he's not so lucky; time will tell -- not to have lost his life.
Wow R51 is a ray of sunshine
wow you guys are so weird...the guy is gorgeous,seems sweet,yummy body,a war veteran yummy bum
some guys like to use body like a paper for tats,i think it's just fine...
why all of a sudden trash and on and on...?
it seems most of you like the young dumb and full of cum with no personality so you don't have to deal with it or get to know the guy...
fascination with sterile -the right gadget-the right look-the right emptiness-
sterile one night ''relationship''
no wonder so many are single forever
He's hot. Is he trying to become a mainstream model, though?
He should just do some gay pron now and save us all the time.
i've noticed that so many gays like this clean cookie cutter type thing ...
i don't get it...
i think some roughness and sweat and strength is sexy and there is nothing wrong with tattoos ...guys are supposed to be spontaneous and you know,gettin a tattoo what is wrong with that?
He's arguably the hottest cyborg since Lee Majors.
His tattoos remind me of those ugly Ed Hardy designs. Big mistake.
"I suppose you think someone who joins the military is a "hero." They're victims is what they are. "
No, I agree with you there. Don't mistake mild support for vets to be from some Teahaggot nutbag.
I protested the Bush dual invasions several times.
But your facile dismissal implies that they're useless as people.
The "heroic" aspect of Alex is that he's become a symbol of positive sexy imagery for disabled people.
Yes, the tattoos are ...whatever they are; his form of expression.
He's not the most eloquent person, partially due to his brain injury.
And hey, he's modeling in his underpants, opening himself up for criticism.
But the particular viciousness here is typical of the anonymous clawed harpies who flutter around any form of celebrity or different looks.
This is guy is all man!!
He can pull off several looks (jock, nerd/intellectual, professional "suit")that make him very much model material. His beautiful tats don't always have to show in all his model shots if/ when he expands beyond what he's doing now. Sweet baby!!!!
You guys who like his tats sound like you live in trailer parks.
He has an attractive face and a nice body; I'm sorry he got blown to smithereens in an unjust war; I'm also sorry he had the poor taste to cover his body in tacky tattoos.
Did anyone catch "Armed & Ready" on the Travel Channel? I have a huge crush on Kevin Michael Connolly.
What do you think his ass smells like after a gruelling workout?
I'll marry him, he's the only guy who can ride in the backseat of my miata.
I would never date him. People with that many tattoos are usually psychotic.
Tattoos have totally ruined my attraction toward other men. Very rare to see a hot guy without ugly tats.
Dear Lord in Heaven!
Today I saw an attractive guy proudly wearing a tank top which revealed his '420' tattoo. It totally killed the momentary bout of lust.
Tattoos are so ugly.
Yuck! It looks like his insides are out.
Hey - so what do you guys think of his tattoos?
probably ass, r68
Well, r74, at least you can bank on a laid-back and horny guy with that tat, and not some angry drunk.
I think he's beautiful, love the tats and a great cock on him, nothing to laugh about at all.
What does a 420 tattoo mean?
Prefers marijuana to liquor, r82, would be my take.
Reading the shit you people wrote about his tattoos and jokes about his amputation reinforces why I don't like being around most gay men.
You people are the ones tattooed with hopelessness, self loathing, and revolting cynicism.
As a younger gay man, I endured this type of smack because of the many scars I have from a surgery. It destroyed my "gay self esteem" and has made me forever afraid to be around too many gay men. In fact I simply hate gay bars and "dinner and drinks" gatherings because of it.
I can make friends with a straight guy in 3 seconds. It takes much longer to trust a gay man as a friend. In spite of that, I've built up a nice circle of gay and straight friends that has made my life full of love and not gay viper viciousness.
I don't pity you guys at all. I think you deserve all the karma you get.
That's pathetic. If you have scars, straight people notice them and comment on them, perhaps not to your face.
Sorry to hear that R84. I hope you understand that people are bitchy online in a way they aren't in real life.
Obviously R84 overlooked this little nugget of information when he logged on:
DataLounge: get your fix of gay gossip, news and pointless bitchery.
And Dear R84, gay men hardly have a lock on bad behavior. I once worked in a small office of 6 straight guys and they out-bitched, out-cunted, out-backstabbed and out-snarked any and all of the bitchiest queens I ever met in my life.
The mobility scooter crowd is really out on this thread. Again fascinating that the same people wanting to be equal in society are all too anxious to tear down someone who doesn't look/act the way they want.
The pic at R67 would make a GREAT TATTOO !!
I wish him the best of luck. He's handsome, and I hope his need for rehabilitation and usefulness doesn't lead him to being used and taken advantage of.
I would love to sniff and lick his anus for about 38 minutes
I don't care for tattoos, but this guy is fucking hot as hell.
Hat is the extent of his brain injury?
I'm sorry, but he should *not* smile.
It's pretty clear he's an affirmative action hottie...because if he had both of his legs, most people wouldn't give him a second look.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
