[h1]Subway hunks featured in cheeky website with straphanger submitted photos[/h1]

Straphangers have made subwaycrush.net, which features good-looking men riding New York City trains, a hit. The sites founder insists men are flattered to find themselves featured online.


A racy new website has straphangers snapping photos of "hot guys" on the subway.

Subwaycrush.net, launched in June, is the New York version of tubecrush.net, a popular British site with photos from the London Underground.

Straphangers will submit photos featuring New York men sipping coffee, napping or reading on the train - with swooning comments like, "Is he kidding me with those arms? Never. Let. Go."

Stephen Notion started the British site with three friends in February "as a joke" after watching a television dating show.

"It was all about admiring hot guys," said Notion, 30. It quickly won thousands of fans and sparked controversy, with critics slamming the concept as demeaning and voyeuristic.

Many of the photos are taken secretly with cell phone cameras.

"I don't want somebody taking my picture," said Jerry Baker of East New York, 18, stepping off the No. 6 train at Lexington Ave. and E. 86th St. "That's rude and immature."

Notion, a London sales manager, insists most men are flattered when they find themselves featured online.

Both the New York and the London sites allow men to request their photos be pulled offline. Notion's team got just four requests out of more than 500 posts, he said.

The sites boast more than 10,000 visitors a day and are popular among gay men.

Joshua Adjei, 22, an upper East Side personal assistant, said he wouldn't mind being featured on subwaycrush.net - if the photographer was a pretty girl.

"When you take a photo of somebody and catch them off guard they don't look good," he said. "You should let them know so they can make a sexy pose."

Double standards exist for both sexes, most likely you're guilty of some as well.

But it's okay for women to do this because they're "expressing their sexuality" and rebelling against macho sexism and pig-ism in this patriarchal guyland



...



Society promotes women to adapt to the times and mimic male behavior but shames men both for acting like the same males they want women to emulate yet at the same time questions their manhood if they emulate most female traits.

Well we have penises so we win. It's harder to build a pole than dig a hole.

As the article states a lot of these photos are being taken without the men knowing it. Unless they're sending emails to each guy featured on their website (sarcasm) the majority of them probably don't even know the site exists. Four men out of 500 sounds a lot better than 4 guys out of the 5 who realize their pictures are being discussed online asked to have it taken down.

I think you missed the point though...some people simply don't want their picture on some random site, regardless of how good they look. Article said at least 4 guys asked to have theirs taken down, and obviously they weren't fat or ugly if they got on the site in the first place
