I like smart men who work out and have muscles. So, I wonder: What the hell is Richard Cohen on about? If you’ve not yet read his Washington Post piece, James Bond and the new sex appeal, you should. In it, he pretty much whines Daniel Craig is too old to be hot. “Craig is 44, but neither gravity nor age has done its evil work on him […] I see a man chasing youth on a treadmill […]”

Oh, do you now? Well, I see a WaPo opinion writer sipping too much haterade. I’m all for men staying healthy, hot, and heaping with muscles at any age. Americans live an average of 78 years, according to the CDC. If Craig doesn’t croak until he’s nearly 80 — and it’s likely he will given Europeans live longer than Americans — he’s barely half way through life. So, why fall apart now? I support the Tina Turner Aging Plan: Stay sexy. Forever.

Men have every right — and, yes, they DESERVE — to feel handsome, strong, wanted and desired. Click over to Pecs and Ass: The Age of Daniel Craig.  Almost exactly 6 years ago to the date, I crowned Daniel Craig the first FUNKY BROWN CHICK® Manly Monday. More than 1,000+ updates later, I consistently write about men and sex appeal, and straight guys repeatedly tell me: Men want to feel sexy. A guy friend recently posited, “But the fact that [straight] men WANT to also be seen as sexy by MEN is a new and relevant thing.” I’m not sure if I completely agree. Straight men want women to want them, and they also want men to “want” to be them — even if that means admiring their rock-hard body. What say you?
