If it felt ridiculously warm these last few months, well, the sun wasn't the only one to blame.

Or, in this case, thank.

That's because there were plenty of pieces of man candy who graciously took time out to strip down to next to nothing and give us a glimpse of what the good Lord gave 'em.

Jared Padalecki AKM-GSI

1. Jared Padalecki: Supernatural. While that might be the title of the hunky star's TV show, the same word could just as easily be used to describe the actor when he hit the beaches of Brazil. Insert swoon here.

2. Hugh Jackman: This one, of course, is a bit of a no-brainer. After all, we are talking about the guy who was named People's "Sexiest Man Alive." Sure, that was way back in 2008, but one might say he's actually gotten better looking with age.

3. Ryan Lochte: U.S. swimmer Michael Phelps may have become the most decorated Olympian ever during the summer games in London, but it's his teammate we'll always remember. And no, it has nothing to do with gold medals, either.

4. Chris Hemsworth: We seriously would have been content staring endlessly at the Avengers star simply sporting a wetsuit. But then, bam, all of a sudden he decides to slip into something severely skimpier. Trust us when we say that's not a complaint.

5. Joe Manganiello: We'll keep this short so that you can resume ogling. The Magic Mike man definitely puts the, well, man in Manganiello. OK, as you were.
