You know, I thought I’d have a big announcement to share with you all today, but it seems that we’ll all have to be on pins and needles just a while longer. In the meantime, I’m again faced with the wonderful question of what we can do to distract ourselves and each other until that special time arrives.

 

Well, I’m always good for settling down with a cold, summer-appropriate beverage to leer at the hot menfolk. When is that inappropriate? Never, I hope.

 

Today, I thought we’d focus on a specific theme. Today, I thought we could ogle hot men in uniform.

 

The military uniform is kind of a conundrum for me. Usually, when it comes to objectifying the gentlemen, my rule of thumb is “the less you have on, the happier I will be.” But something about the military uniform is working for me. Sure, I’ll be sharing some examples from the popular media, where smart, talented people will style a uniform to make everyone look super hot. I mean, I’m not even that into Channing Tatum, but he is making me reconsider Dear John.

 

Don't you kind of want to mess up his very touchable hair?

I’ll probably never see Tom Mison in Sleepy Hollow again, so I had to give him a shoutout here. His usual long, tall look (accentuated by the devil’s trousers) is certainly pretty to look at, but I don’t mind the armored look even a little bit.

 

I'll remember Ichabod fondly for making history hot.

Representing a future we can all hope for, Idris Elba as Stacker Pentecost in Pacific Rim proves that it takes a big dude to carry all those stars on his shoulders. Whatever he’s saying, I’m listening to.

Finally, Chris Evans looks like appropriate courtship material as Steve Rogers. Wouldn’t that be nice with some candlelight and a nice beverage? No matter what changes Captain America might be making in the comics, it’s good to see that Chris is kind of evergreen, right?

 

This fish out of water looks right at home here.

I hope I’ve left you with something to think about while I wait for my news flash. Few things pass the time so effectively as daydreaming, in my experience, and a military fantasy, something nice and wholesome and — dare I say? — patriotic, is an adventure you can feel great about.

Don’t forget your beverage.

Are you following Lady Smut? We can get you more than just a few good men.
