How long have you been modeling?

Two years.

What was your first modeling gig?

A portfolio shoot with an amateur photographer.

What is your favorite type of modeling?


What’s the craziest photo shoot concept you’ve done?

Being covered with ash and grease to achieve a gritty and sweaty grunge look.

Your dream modeling gig?

An editorial spread in a fitness magazine like Men’s Health.

Why do you model?

It’s easy money, plus I’m kind of lazy, haha.

Do you think there is a stigma against men wearing “skimpy” underwear?

I think people are quick to question someone’s sexuality just because they wear skimpy underwear which is unfortunate. Everyone should be able to wear whatever they want - gay, straight or otherwise. 

Who in the modeling industry inspires you?

The late Greg Plitt. I am envious of his physique.

How do you prepare for a photo shoot?

I cut out sodium, eat light and do lots of cardio.

Do you manscape?

I trim the pubes.

How many times a week do you workout and what’s your favorite routine?

3-5 times a week. Leg day.

What is your favorite style of underwear?


What do you like about BodyAware?

I like the unique styles and wide arrange of fun items you have to offer. There’s something for every type of man. 

What is your favorite BodyAware product?

The Spark Plug by Oxballs 

What would be your perfect date night?

The perfect date night for me is making dinner at home, a bottle of wine, a movie - and then some hot, steamy sex!

If you were stranded on a deserted island, who would you be stranded with and with what three items?

Noomi Rapace, a sharp knife, magnesium fire starter and a bottle of lube.

Your most embarrassing moment?

Having an erection in high school class and not being able to hide it.

Where can we see you next?

I have a couple of videos coming out in the next few months. (wink, wink)

He is sooo hot. I hope we can see his little videos.


I really like that he looks like a man with some hair on his chest. So many models look like greased mannequins. I also really like he isn’t covered in tattoos. If you have a body as nice as his, it would be a sin to cover it with graffiti ! Besides they distract from the clothes they are modeling. Hope we see more of him soon!


Awsome body Joel you have my vote!


Joel is right-His ass is great, but his smile is pretty amazing as well! I think that he will succeed at anything he tries, as he has the right look and a perfectly proportioned body. Good luck Joel.


Joel has a great look, height, and smile. We spoke briefly in one email I think a year or so ago. I considered photographing him, but we never set it up because he was out of the area. Im glad to see he’s doing well and getting the attention he deserves. He is a great “bonus” to Body Aware!
