Beau Breedlove

This hot little scandal just got a whole lot juicier! reported today that the former intern, whose sexual relationship at age 18 with then-42-year-old Portland commissioner and current mayor Sam Adams caused a major scandal last month, has done a nude photo shoot for Unzipped Magazine. The spread and interview featuring the now-21-year-old are to run in the magazine's May 2009 edition (on the streets in April.)

According to the magazine: "Beau Breedlove [pictured above in the speedo] was extremely professional at his first erotic photo shoot in Los Angeles this past weekend. He came to L.A. to prove that the Portland scandal does not define his sexuality. The photos portray the real Beau–a confident and extremely handsome young man who is openly sensual, openly sexual, and has nothing to hide."

Well I'm going to have to pick up that Breedlove has brilliantly taken advantage of his mystique and sex appeal to make himself some probably decent coin, all the power to him. This scandal could easily drag on, taking America's first openly gay mayor down with it. It's interesting that Adams has been able to survive at all. It says a lot about how progressive Portlanders really are. But perhaps it's also a tacit admission that the mayor is only human, and looking at Breedlove, it's easy to understand why Adams couldn't help

The whole scandal gets me thinking about other lustful tales like Jeff Chevalier, for example. He sold his story taking down old Lord Browne to a London newspaper, but didn't pose nude like Breedlove. I guess Beau's just more of an exhibitionist?

Regardless, this new scandal will take its toll, the right will be sure of that.
