Semi-random question based on possibly writing a stroy for a themed anthology. What is the sexiest ball sport?

I'm thinking rugby

If I said 'cricket' would you laugh?

This question looked easier before I tried to reply.

Hmmm: Rugby does set the scene for Russell Crowe's character in 'The Sum of Us'. (I'm reminded of the 'definition' of a scrum as one bloke shoving two blokes' heads up three blokes' arses.)

Cricket? Um, it does have a lot of dash to it, but Americans will probably think of it (ironically) as a sissy sport.

Beach volleyball's probably the cliché answer.

Would you count eight-ball/billiards?

Somebody else will have a better answer. I can't top rugby at the moment; just not golf!

Ew. Not Rugby. Too... a little too rough -- and the players are rarely attractive.

I'm inclined to agree w/ Poet: billiards is pretty ****in' sexy, but in a different sort of way.

I dunno. This is hard to say. I saw a really hot porno with some soccer players once; they were wearing their cleats and everything.

Mm-mm.

Football is the sexiest sport. For proof, I offer Jake Plummer, aka, Walking Sex. Or shoot, any QB. MmmmmmmQBsmmmmmmmmmmm.

It's true, I have a serious QB fetish. Because they're seriously hot. Especially Jake "The Snake" Plummer.

this is the best picture I could find, though I don't think it quite conveys his full sexiness. The man goes to his press conferences without shoes. I love him.

To me, a guy who's drenched with sweat and testosterone, while ripe, is not at his peak. I'll be plucking him after he showers, you know? (Our bathroom is a virtual miasma until Mr. Maryn's running stuff has dried enough to be put in the hamper. I'd rather pee in the yard than inhale in there.)

Of course the nationality of the target audience is a huge factor that means cricket and rugby are ruled out by my American ignorance, so I'll say baseball. Unlike football and basketball, its players have all sorts of different body types (something for everyone!), are of mixed races and ethnicities (really, something for everyone!), span ages from recent high school graduates to early 40s (I swear, there's something for everyone!), all in a sport which doesn't leave every active player sopping with perspiration. And the standard uniform is snug, with no padding except for the catcher, so you know what you're getting.

Although I agree there's something inherently sexy about a man or woman who's good at billiards or pool. Why is that?

Hmm. I am foggy on the rules for either... but I agree about pool/billiards. has the skill element but the panting and sweating can be left until later ;)

Baseball! Those guys are so darn good looking. I can't resist the white uniforms. And, they sure love to touch each other's butts. Plus, for some reasons, some of our guys are constantly out there on the field rearranging their..um...I don't know what they're doing. And -- it's not like I'm staring, they do it right in front of you.

Man, I love baseball.

the only times I have watched baseball the guys, um how can I put this, were not in good shape. The only lasting image I have involves wobbling.

Dear me people (having checked my secret comments) it was *stomachs* woddling.

Ugh, overweight athletes. Even when there's powerful muscle under there, a gelatinous gut on the bounce is not a pretty thing. It's even more common in sports like football, where body mass alone helps you do push the opponent out of the way.

Years ago David Letterman poked repeated fun at overweight baseball pitcher Terry Forster. After months of this, Forster appeared as a guest on the show, explained how dead it was in the bullpen or dugout on a night he wouldn't be pitching, but that vendors would deliver hot dogs, burgers, even beer in Coke cups. Then he did a barbecue demo. Ribs, I think.

Roger Clemens has thickened up over the years, but he's still got that arm--and makes so much that he doesn't need to do Zest soap commercials clad only in a towel...

Maryn, wondering what Cal Schiraldi's* doing today

* Schiraldi and Clemens were tapped from the same college team to join the same major league team

This gentleman pitches in the Japanese leagues, where major league US players sometimes finish out their careers. We must remember Japan is the birthplace of sumo, but geez louise, look at this guy. No wonder he's got a three-digit number.

Basketball, hands down.


It's such a skilled, athletic sport. I love the game. Whether played by tiny kids or pro, it's full of action and excitement.

I'm surprised no one has mentioned tennis. Of course, I have a thing for female tennis players, but the guys get their share of female attention. Marat Safin usually has a couple of models in his box where the wives/girlfriends sit.

That must happen when they get to the majors

At our Single A level - I don't think we have a single baseball player that can be considered overweight - and if so, very little.

Most of our guys are young, tall and slim and look great in their outfits. And, no, I'm not some perverted-minded middle-aged woman that goes to the games to get my jollies.

I started attending when my cousin played pro-ball here. (catcher Benny Morales - he made it to the majors, Colorado Rockies for two seasons)

But, I just love the sport! Having them look so great is just icing on the cake.

Ah, September, GMTA. I have a very rough draft of an erotica story starring a triple-A ball player and his landlady...

The ending, where he goes to the bigs, reads phony, though.

Maryn, whose family contains no athleticism whatsoever

Beach volleyball - Post #2, if I do say so myself.

If it's bods you want, it'd have to be the Uncle Toby's Super Series -- male or female, surf-lifesaving type contests: swim/run/surf-ski.

I thought any sport involving men was a ball sport, anyway.... my vote is for Footie. Man, no protective equipment but electrical tape around the ears. Whoooo, those are men.

Not that I found time to write the story after all -- probably spending too much time here.

i did finish a novella that's been hanging around for months though.

netball all the way.

i hear they are not even allowed to move and vulnerability can be very sexy...

Only the one holding the ball can't move, the rest just have 'zones'.

What about rugby? Those players are thin, trim, and violent! Plus the British accents are a plus.

Thanks to Maryn for the inspirations suggestion of Pool. Just for an extra twist I when with snooker and the story has been accepted for Torquere Press's 'Play Ball' e-book.

Thin?! You haven't been watching. Those guys are solid muscle and hard as nails.

Sexy ball sports and their icons...hmm

Oh .. I know Bowling and Fred Flintstone.

Sorry, Emily, I had to do it.

Actually, that bowling stance could be errr quite interesting.

I caught a wee leprechaun, a bit early I know. He was having his morning shave. I said , "wee leprchaun I don't want your money or your rainbow I'll settle for directions to the land of Hot naked bowlers." He was quite willing to make such a deal and gave me specific directions. I took of with great alacrity and with not a little bit of shall we say warmth. I arrived at the spot ..opened the door and discovered






an overheated closet full of bowler hats with their hat bands removed.

Oh well ...that's a leprechaun for ya.<;

When I play squash, I play in the nude. I find that I'm much looser that way, and my my balls have more bounce. Go figure.

Rugby - those big legs and cute butts... wow - and now they have those tight tops that show their muscles - very nice indeed. The NZ team have some damm fine lookers. The POM's have nice uniforms too. The Aust team look crap in their daggy old tops and "do you know who I am" touring attitude. That said - the welsh are an ugly bunch.

The Uncle Toby's ironmen come a damm close second.

Yeah, there aren't too many pin-up boys on the Wallabies, true enough -- except Lote Tuqiri, but I'm no judge of beefcake anyway.

And no argument that there are quite a few of them who could use a little humble pie. A good butt-whipping turned the cricket team around, but it hasn't happened yet for the Wobblies. Still a pile of excuses.

Hopefully for them, it'll hold true that winning makes you more attractive. They've got just about nowhere to go but up right now.

A work colleague (guy) has a screensaver consisting of seminude photos of the French rugby team. Not my cup of vin ordinaire, but has obvious appeal to others.

Beach volleyball's probably the cliché answer.



I watched Top Gun on TV this weekend - just the beach volleyball scene, and Tom Cruise riding away on his motorcycle (to think, he's gone so crazy now...).

What I noticed is that Goose (Anthony Edwards) keeps his shirt on through the whole scene, while the other three guys are shirtless, flexing, and glinting with sweat. It's as if someone said to him "you are not hot enough to play this sport, so you will remain fully clothed"
