Blatant Objectification: Bernardo Velasco

March 17, 2014

Romance novels rest on the well-muscled bedrock of hot protagonists.  In light of this, I would like to provide you with some fresh sources of inspiration, whether you are a romance writer, a romance reader or, like me, both--as well as a blatant objectifier of men.

Fourth in a series, following Stuart Reardon, Xabi Alonso, and Pablo Daniel Osvaldo, is Brazilian model and actor Bernardo Velasco.  Born in Rio de Janiero, Velasco appears in the Brazilian soap operas Pecado Mortal ("Mortal Sin") and Malhação ("Workout").  I have nothing more to say about him except he is so ridiculously handsome that looking at these photos makes me want to hit my head with a wooden board like the monks in Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

Here's a joke to clear the palate.
Q: What do you do to an elephant with three balls?
A: Walk him and pitch to the giraffe.

Okay, on with the hotness.


He's really cute from all angles, guys. Image from listal.com.

Brazil is hosting World Cup 2014.  Thought I'd end with a little Brazilian pride.  Well, maybe not a little.
