Canadian heartthrob Taylor Kitsch stopped by Ellen this week, where he was treated to one of the hottest and most sensual sendoffs we’ve ever seen — a stunning montage featuring his “his most beautiful work,” or simply, a shirtless supercut set to the sound of Boyz II Men’s “I’ll Make Love To You”.
Check out Taylor Kitsch in HBO’s hugely anticipated adaptation of The Normal Heart, airing tomorrow night, Sunday, May 25 at 9pm on HBO.
But please get acquainted with his nipples first:

The New York Times published an op-ed piece this week hailing the controversial “HIV-preventing miracle drug” Truvada as a new “sexual revolution” for the gay male community, likening it to the invention of birth control and wondering if it has the power to lower the “viral load of a city.”
Plagues and pestilences reporter Donald G. McNeil argues that the FDA-approved daily pill could work to eradicate HIV altogether if more people were on board with it:
For now, Truvada has no Andromeda or Margaret Sanger. The C.D.C. recommendations were released quietly, with no news conference. And Gilead Sciences, its maker, doesn’t advertise it for PrEP.
But it may yet become accepted. If it does, it will become part of a larger truth emerging in the field of AIDS medicine: Modern antiretroviral drugs are phenomenally potent weapons. They could be the key to finally shrinking the epidemic.
Science is working on it, McNeil says. Surveys suggest that many potential Truvada users would be more likely to receive a three-month Truvada shot over daily pills, if such a thing were available:
Protection of 96 to 100 percent is better than even the best vaccines. But vaccines protect for life while pills must be taken daily.
Some women found that hard with the Pill, so the contraceptive market eventually developed long-lasting injections, implants, vaginal rings and “morning after” pills.
The H.I.V. field is already moving that way.
A recent survey of 200 young gay men conducted by Perry N. Halkitis, a behavioral researcher at New York University, found that if a three-month Truvada shot existed, 79 percent of them would prefer it over daily pills. Two studies in monkeys have already tested the long-lasting injectable concept, and it worked.
The new drugs permit even grander ambitions. By treating enough inhabitants, the whole “viral load” of a city can be lowered. That protects everyone — just as cities used to slow down smallpox outbreaks by rapidly vaccinating thousands of inhabitants.
Is “HIV’s Sexual Revolution” on the horizon?

Louis Smith, the handsome British gymnast who would “go gay” for Will Smith, is going gay for Attitude magazine’s June issue. The hunky 25-year-old Olympic medalist stripped down to his briefs for the cover and in an exclusive interview inside, talks being single (he’s “looking for a long-term girlfriend”), LGBT athletes, and what he thinks of 99 percent of his gay fans.
The last time we saw Smith he was in much less clothing, posing in a thong for a risqué flex fest on Instagram. The square-cut trunks he’s sporting here are honestly quite tame for him.
On giving advice to closeted sportsmen:
I think what Tom Daley did was very brave, but he definitely made the right choice because when you’re in the public eye someone says something and it gets twisted and before you know it there’s a news article out there before you’ve even had a chance to say anything.
Whereas what he did, he was able to put the first statement out on his own and tell people how it is; I remember Tom saying that even after he told his best friend he felt so much better, like he had so much weight lifted off him. Imagine that as an athlete, imagine having to think about that every day in training, every time you compete. It’s a worry you don’t need.
You know what, 99 percent of the time they’re fine. But now and again you do get the odd tweet — whether it’s from a girl or a gay person – that does kind of cross the line! [laughs] But you have to have a laugh and have a giggle. I mean I like a dirty joke as much as the next person so I do laugh about it.
On competing in the selfie Olympics:
Well you know, I’ve taken the odd selfie and I like to provide entertainment to the people that follow me! I don’t want to be some boring guy that takes pictures of food the whole time. I mean I’m only 25, I want to keep a bit of sex appeal!
There were some pictures snapped of me last summer that weren’t that appealing so I just want to share my training and my hard work. I like to keep people up to date with what’s going on! I was shooting my 2015 calendar the next day, and my agent said to me “Louis, go and get a spray tan, you’ll get a nice little glow for the shoot.” I was like, “I’m mixed race! I’ve already got a bit of a tan you know!” So I got a spray tan and instantly I was seeing lines in places they’d never been before, so I decided to do a video in my little paper thong!
It felt like I had nothing on to be honest. With my ADHD I tend not to think really, I just kind of go along with shit and then it was up there!
