While my fascination with and love of Buddhist monks is not normally sexual in nature, the occasional hottie wrapped in saffron does stir the kind of thoughts that make me believe there must be a god. I’ve yet to score a monk, but that is on my bucket list. So it’s probably a good thing Buddhists don’t believe in hell.
Surfing the ‘net recently, I ended up on one of those sites filled with gorgeous Asian guys as I often do. This particular site, a blog, had a pictorial post highlighting the hotness known as Mario Maurer. You probably remember Mario from his leading role in the ultra-gay Thai flick The Love of Siam. Or from jacking off over the ultra-gay Thai flick The Love of Siam. Back in 2007 when that movie was made Mario was a little hottie. Since then he’s grown up into a fine hunk of manhood. And the post I found left no question about just how fine he’s turned out to be. At least not visually. There was no accompanying text. Not that it was needed.
But smack dab in the middle was the opening shot of this post. I had to assume since the post I was drooling over was just about Mario, this photo was too. I know lots, if not most, Thai men spend sometime as a monk. Even a lot of bar boys. Famous actors with a busy career, I wasn’t too sure about. But Google supplied me first with a shot of Mario having his head shaved, and then with a link that proved he hadn’t signed up for the saffron brigade, but rather had played the role of a monk in a movie called Outrage. (Google threw a few shirtless shots in in between too . . . which buttresses that there is a god thingy again.)
Outrage, or U Mong Pa Mueang as the movie is known in Thailand, is an adaptation of Akira Kurosawa’s revered 1950 classic Rashomon, with Mario in a pivotal but supporting role. And yes, the young heart throb’s head is shaved, but his bushy eyebrows are left intact. He was nominated for the Asian Film Awards Best Supporting Actor trophy for his work in that film and probably would have won if they’d come up with an excuse for him to lock lips with another guy again.
More recently Mario starred in Pee Mak, which is like the 1 millionth adaptation of Thailand’s favorite ghost story. To date it is Thailand’s biggest grossing movie of all time. He was also featured on the cover of Attitude Magazine. Which I’m sure was also that magazine’s highest grossing issue.
