It’s a tough job doing a blog post on hot firemen when Jane Linfoot has already done such an excellent job… but I’m going to do it anyway.
Apart from all the obvious reasons why firemen make such gorgeous heroes (abs, adrenalin, and all those inescapable jokes about being able to handle his hose), I think the fact that they are the first responders in any dangerous situation gives them a dark and exciting edge.
What mere mortal runs straight into the face of danger? He has to be either superhuman or insane, right? And in both those scenarios that makes him pretty interesting.
But I’m a bit of a closet feminist, so as much as I like to drool over shirtless firemen, I’d also love to see more female firefighters. Which is why, when I wrote my contribution to the Minxes of Romance’s Blaze anthology, I made my firefighter a woman.
I was very cheered when researching this blog post (what’s the point doing a blog post on firemen without research?!) to discover that the 2015 version of the famous NYC Firefighters Calendar features a woman for the first time. After all, women can be every bit as heroic as men!
But usually have more sense. Maybe that's where the disparity in numbers lies? ;-)
But let’s be honest here, what would a blog post on heroic firemen be without a bit of eye candy? Enjoy these from the 2015 calendar…
