[Chester’s Quick Poll]

  • Eric Meyers – Boots
  • Tyler Stillwell – Loves, loves, loves suit and tie.
  • Andrew Ealy- Blue collar… The illusion/idea of a person who is a hard worker, not afraid to get dirty, mechanically inclined, Caretaker… The ability to build, create, repair take care of our own I find to be a sexy trait.
  • Randall Stratton – Totally agree with Andrew Ealy
  • Aron Moberg – I think for me, It’s the exchange of the masculinity representative of that archetype being an object of my pleasure. Subjected to my desires.
  • Greg Ballard – yes
