The Hottest Studs on HubPages

What is a "Stud"

Among Merriam-Webster's definitions of stud is "a; young man : guy ; especially : one who is virile and promiscuous b: a tough person c: hunk.

I'm sure we could all name a half dozen, dozen or even 100 Hubbers who fit this classic definition. But if you came here expecting a photo essay of your favorite writers' avatars, I'm afraid you will be disappointed.

On the other (sweaty) hand, if you came here with an open mind, you just might learn something new about studs. Because, as I found out, not all studs are promiscuous or virile (but some are). And while most are exceptionally strong or tough, it would be stretching it to call them "hunks."

I sent my trusty studfinder on a stud-finding mission
I sent my trusty studfinder on a stud-finding mission

When I started researching this hub, I must confess I had some preconceived ideas myself. My little mind took me straight to ...construction. I Google'd "construction studs" and look who popped up? Ms. Studfinder herself.

I figured heck, if she's got that kind of Google ranking she must be quite an expert on the subject of studs. So I enlisted her help. Thank goodness I did, or I probably would have to resort to posting avatars of people like Christoph Reilly, Agvulpes, Constant Walker, Sixtyorso, Eric Graudins, Misha, TKeeley and Goldentoad (to name but a few of the genuine hunksters of HP).

A Stud for Every Taste

Notice her bright orange double entendres, unfailingly pointed toward new definitions of "stud." In fact, I am pretty sure Ms. Studfinder has had experience with lots and lots of studs in her career.

But I must say I'm pretty impressed with what she came up with (no pun intended there).

Okay. So her first attempt was rather lame. I think she was trying to test me. She came up with the Stud contact system,  which of course everyone knows is an obsolete ground-level power supply system for tramways.Yawn.

The rest of Ms. Studfinder's findings are listed here for your edification (or I suppose that would be "stud-ification").

Personal Studs

Shirt Stud - a small ornamental button mounted on a short post for insertion through an eyelet

Stud earrings - for pierced ears

Yes, both of these stud types involve sticking a hard shaft through a hole. The nice thing about these personal studs is that a) they reflect your personal style, and b) are totally portable -- you can take them with you wherever you go. In addition, they inspire envy. Expect positive comments when you display your personal studs.

LEGOS

The interlocking circular piece of a LEGO brick is also called a "stud."

This one totally surprised me, until I remembered going to LEGOland with my son (then 6). We were having a wonderful, wholesome time when some guy (NOT my idea of a virile hunk at all) tried to PICK ME UP! Right there in LEGOland!! How could anyone find the ambiance at a theme park romantic? Maybe there's something arousing about all those millions of interlocking lego pieces (?). I thought perhaps it could be that sexy Swedish influence ... until I realized LEGO is a Danish company. Oh well.

Studded Tires

Studded tires -- Devices inserted in the tread of automobile winter tires.

I guess you could say these studs make your tires more virile. And like other studs (see animal studs, below) they are only good for a very specific purpose. They're basically useless or even harmful if you try to drive on them in the summer.

No wonder we associate "studs" with "upright woodies."

Big Strong Construction Studs

Actual wording from Wikipedia: Wall stud - a "vertical member" within a light-frame construction wall. Also, Stud Wall.

Uh. I'm not touching that one with a 2x4 pole. Especially not when combined with this other construction-related type of stud:

Screw - a threaded fastener. A screw is a shaft with a helical groove or thread formed on its surface and provision at one end to turn the screw.

So basically, then, you can screw one type of stud (the screw) into another type of stud (the beam). Hmmm.

Animal Studs

Stud (animal) - an animal that has been registered and is retained for breeding. Such animals may actually be kept on a stud farm -- not to be confused with farm studs, who are bemuscled, overall-wearing agricultural workers or ranchhands...

I'm thinking this filly isn't too excited about doing the wild thing down on the stud farm. Hey stallion -- take her to LEGOland!  Or you can contact our own BT Evilpants.  He's the senior Animal Stud 'round here.

Poker vs. Poke Her?

Yes, I did know Stud Poker was a kind of card game. I did not realize there were so many varieties. There's Five-card stud, Seven-card stud, and for those of you who prefer your studs more on the exotic side, Caribbean Stud Poker.

With so many options, it's a sure bet you'll find the perfect stud to occupy your hand ... or hands.  

Studs Terkel -- A Stud We Can Relate To!

In all honesty, The Studfinder did not come up with this final entry. I think because the search criteria I gave her was "stud" and not "studs." Nope, I added Mr. Terkel myself. I was not aware that this prize-winning author and radio broadcast personality had died this year (on Halloween). I was aware of some of his Depression era works (e.g., "Hard Times").

Given Mr. Terkel's long career interviewing icons and discussing/writing about sociological trends, I consider him an excellent stud model for everyone here at Hub Pages. To give you an idea of his breadth of subject matter, here's a list of Studs' favorite conversations:

Hey, thanks, Misha. I don't think we'll ever finish with this theme. Like hope, it springs eternal. LOL.

Cris -- studbook. That's a new one on me. Kinda like a "little black book" for studly horses and dogs? I love it! Thanks!Lita -- well, I'm all about equal opportunity. My list of hub studs includes both males and females -- anyone and everyone who makes HP interesting. But if you're in a "hot" kinda mood, go check out Constant Walker's new hubs.

Of course I give big ups to this hub. The other day I was having an inspection and the inspector asked me if I used a studfinder before I drilled, and I said, why would I do that? I don't need to look for another stud, I just a drill away baby! Of course, he didn't think I was funny, and I figured him to have a case of stud envy.

Well, thank you for the ego-building mention in the "hunkster"  sentence.

This was way-fun to read, and the jokes are flooding my brain... but see, I'm being nice.  The effort involved in this "being nice" stuff is rediculous!

Princessa, "learnt"? I love that word. Is that a real word? I'm looking it up...

Yep... it's listed. Cool!

Princessa profile image

Princessa 7 years ago from France

Constant Walker : Yes, LEARNT is a real word. Learnt is more common in British English. There are a number of verbs of this type (burn, dream, kneel, spell, spill, spoil etc.). They are all irregular verbs, and this is a part of their irregularity.

Merry Christmas "hunkster" :-)

MM after stud..ying this Stud sorry Hub and finding it rivetting reading. I find it quite flattening to be rated by you as a "hunkster".

I have built many stud walls in the past and had cause to use studfinders on many occassions. Unfortunatly (for me) I never came across one with such big "traffic stoppers" as your Miss Studfinder.


Mighty Mom profile image

Mighty Mom 7 years ago from Where Left is Right, CA Author

Oh Ag! You know you are definitely one of my favorite studs here on HP. I really admire studs. They perform such an essential job. But you don't want to run into one by accident or you can really screw yourself!

Next time you need a studfinder I suggest you enlist the help of this little gal here. She did a great job for me on her studfinding... But I needed to help out, too.

agvulpes profile image

agvulpes 7 years ago from Australia

MM you bring back so many memories. Those were the days where you could just rock up and nail any old stud with a nice straight 3 inch round head. And it seemed like it would last forever. Of course they had to be on the angle to have the right effect and lock things in place.

These days its all mechanical with the machines the've got . Put the right bit in,pull the switch, screw this , screw that.  What is the world coming to. I say bring back the hands on way of doing things.

Now that I've got that off my chest I feel much better.

agvulpes profile image

agvulpes 7 years ago from Australia

MM would that be a mixed metaphor. I noticed the exclamation mark.

Was a question being raised?. "screwing studs"

Is the subject, 1) a stud that screws or 2) a stud that is being screwed.

Could you please tell me where to get one of those construction cone bras? I want one bad. Wait, there happens to be some construction going on up the road from me. Never mind. I know where I can get one. ;)

Good one MM! :)


Mighty Mom profile image

Mighty Mom 7 years ago from Where Left is Right, CA Author

Pam, Yes, I did read about that little "busted" moment with your daughter. You know, you COULD use this as a learning tool for her -- that every racily titled hub on HP is not what it seems:-). But then you run the risk of her wanting a studfinder outfit too. I worry about you out there in the cold December weather stealing orange cones. And it's probably a felony or something (they are very, very strict about "slowing for the cone zone" out here in CA). But if you really, really want one... Google "studfinder" and she'll pop right up (cones first:-).

Violet Sun -- HubPages is a never-ending fount of new information, isn't it? Some useful, some just silly and fun. Glad you stopped by.

Ag: Uh. You do raise an interesting grammatical point. A stud screwing a stud. Hmmm. The stud is the subject. Screw is the verb. Stud is the object.

But a stud screwing a screw into the stud -- screw then is also an object.

Goodness -- I haven't talked about these subjects (or verbs or objects) so often in I don't know when! Must be the orange cone bra I'm wearing:-)

What a wonderful surprise this Hub is.

First, Studs Terkel is one of my favorite authors and personalities.  I am so glad you didn't feature him in spandex.

Second, and last, where I come from a *Hunk* is a Hungarian.  Unfortunately, this term was meant to be derogatory in the late 50s, early 60s, when our community saw in influx of refugees from Hungary.  My daughter (31 years my junior) and I have often talked about this term.  She thought I was kidding about the prejudice associated with this term.  So I suggested she call her grandmother.

"What's a Hunk?" she asked my mother.  My mother said, "A man from Hungary."  My mother could associate not any attractiveness in this term.  I guess you could say it was a learning experience for my daughter.  Stud does not equal hunk, at least for one generation.

Very cool Hub.

Mighty Mom profile image

Mighty Mom 7 years ago from Where Left is Right, CA Author

Hub Pages is definitely full of surprises -- including tricks to get people lured in to read your hub! Also learning surprises. Sally's Trove, I have to say I have never, ever heard that term for a Hungarian. But that's not surprising, as my experience with Hungarians is limited pretty much to the Gabor sisters! From a linguistics point of view I guess it makes sense. It's pretty common to take the beginning part of the ethnicity and end it with a hard "K" sound. Examples, Chink for Chinese person, Cannuck for Canadian, Franc for Frenchman, Spic for Spanish/Mexican person. Not sure where this all comes from tho. I do hope your daughter's more modern definition of "Hunk" was not ruined by her conversation with her grandma!

Sheenarobins -- ha ha! Hope you were not disappointed too much:)!! If you look carefully, there are some other hubs that feature our favorite male minds and the avatars that cover their brilliant (but often twisted) brains! My memory is like a sieve, but not too long ago there was a very funny one by Agvulpes or maybe it was Goldentoad or Constant Walker -- yes, I think it was CW because it seemed so out of character for him! And it actually featured naked fannies.


agvulpes profile image

agvulpes 7 years ago from Australia

Hi MM , Sally's Trove mentioned that Hunk to her was a term for a Hungarian. Well we nearly fell of our chairs in Australia when we first heard the term "fanny" I think it was in "Mash".

In Australia you did not use the word fanny in mixed company because it was not referring to a ladies "bum"!. No siree.

I don't know where the mix up came from or where the term "fanny " came from? Would you know?

Cute avatar, am I missing something? ;-[)


Mighty Mom profile image

Mighty Mom 7 years ago from Where Left is Right, CA Author

Can't say as I do know where the term "fanny" came from here in the states. It does mean a ladie's derriere, tho. I can only surmise what it denotes in Australia. Yowza!

My avatar is the cover of a children's book. It's a lot like a Dr. Seuss book. About a little bird who goes around looking for his mom -- and inquiring of some rather unlikely creatures and objects... I received a copy for my baby shower signed by all the guests. It has been a tradition for me since to give one at baby showers. So it really is sort of my own personal "motherhood" avatar!

Oh my dear, dear Hairy. I know I am an elusive lass. I've put you through the wringer, ain't I (good Lord, I'm even starting to talk like you!). I've been through the wringer myself, eh?

So here's the deal. You can go back to your old habits. You are OFFICIALLY the hottest stud in my world. But please don't tell your pal Ag, as he is only a fraction of a point behind you in studiness! MM

Dear, kind, sir. You have no idea how much your "speshul big hug" means to me right now (or anytime). My little head hurts under the big red hat, so I will not even attempt to respond in Aussie-speak.

Just know you and your mate Ag are much appreciated. (((HA))) and (((AG))) from MM

How come I never saw this before?? I missed it somehow! Very clever, very funny!!! Interesting info on Studs Terkel! He interviewed some amazing people!!! That Picasso statue in Chicago is one of my favorite things in the city!

Hey there, Anna Marie! Haven't seen you in awhile. Hope all's well. I know how it is -- suddenly stumbling onto a hub that I totally spazzed on when it first got published. Guess we can't spend every waking hour monitoring HP:-). I'm glad you like Studs Terkel. He was an incredible man!!


hairy A.S.S. 7 years ago

I have arksed Ag to stand in cos we don wanna hirt that little ead of yours any more than need be,so over to Ag.

hi MM hairy says to pass on his greetings and tell you that he is much happier now that he can see a smile on your face. "What was that Hairy" . "Hairy you really want me to say that"

"Well Ok "

and you haven't got a portable toilet sticking out of your head ! ;-)

He also said and I agree with him " Your welcome, any time"

ps. Sorry about Hairy but he does have a way about him !

"Hairy, stop that put down that Keg !!"

Well hello, my down under friends. It is always good to see you both. And it is especially kind of you, Ag, to interpret for Hairy, since he speaks a dialect that is a bit difficult for me. Thank you for sparing my head.

I don't know about you, but this Hub contest is pulling my attention in too many directions at once. A lot of great hubbers are participating and it's simply not possible to read everyone's new work, especially since it's getting churned out like butter.

But I'm glad you came over here for a visit. MM

P.S. I am going to pretend like I did not hear what Hairy said about the portable toilet coming out of my head. Sometimes I don't know if you are just being silly or if you are spoiling for a spar. How's about if I grab my little read plunger and stick it right up your bum?

I'm a kidding, you know that! Ag, please tell him I am kidding and I like him very, very much.

MM I think hairy was referring to your previous avatar image. He said that there was a portable loo in the background that looked like it was coming out of you hat.

He also added that your beauty would always overshadow a portaloo.

That may have lost something in translation but I hope you understand that young Hairy would not say anything to upset you. You know I think young Hairy's got a crush on you. Are you sure there's not something going on behind my back ?

MM on the serious side of things, HP has lost some of it's spontaneity for me, I would be interested to hear how you feel .?

MM..LOL!Not fair!I expected something else!LOL.Anyway really,really good one..I would not have thought of this!Thanks:)

Mighty Mom 7 years ago from Where Left is Right, CA Author

I'm pretty fond of Hairy as well. Who could resist a man who tells you your beauty would always overshadow a portaloo!?? But don't worry. You and I were friends long before your little sidekick came on the scene. If he knows what's good for him he will respect your position and not try to do anything rash or sneaky!

As to the serious side of things, I think I understand -- and agree with -- your feelings. In a way, tho, what is lacking is more the "expectation of spontaneity" if that makes any sense. When I first came aboard you could count on some regularity. On any given day (or night) you could join in a hub jacking and engage with a regular crew of hubbers. Quite a few of those hubbers have fallen away. Even Christoph Reilly isn't around as regularly as he used to be.

I do feel that HP feels weird right now because of the challenge. I hope things will normalize again in a couple of weeks when this is all done. But we do need to assimilate into a "new society" of hubber elite. The hot hubbers seem to change every couple of weeks. In a way, that's good -- there is some wonderful new talent. But it does take time to build up trust/relationships with new people, so I can understand that you might not be keen on going through the effort.

I sincerely hope you are not considering leaving! Maybe you should write a new hub. That always makes ME feel more connected:-)

Hello RooBee! Thanks for the comment. I hope that little stud with you liked the hub, too:-). MM

He did, MM, funny you should ask. He is quite the studmuffin already but is always looking to learn from the greats :)

I, too, thought I would find MY pic on this hub. Then again, you didn't know of me when you wrote this so that's okay.

I'm going to have to show my youngest son this hub. He is all about LEGOS. In fact, we have helped lego master Builders build two HUGE (maybe 12 foot tall) Lego creations at one of the big malls near my house.

(Still liking the Supergirl avatar and wondering if you ever dress like that. . .for. . .uh Halloween. . .or a costume party, I mean.)


Mighty Mom profile image

Mighty Mom 7 years ago from Where Left is Right, CA Author

Why hello, Mr. wsp (or do you prefer 2469)? You're absolutely right. Had I known you when I wrote this hub there is no way I could have avoided including you. I mean -- if that is a real pic of you, it is the true essence of "stud."

As for LEGOS, I remember those days well. I also remember taking my son to LEGOLand and that was the first time he was behind the wheel of a car by himself. Foreshadowing...

And I also recall being bemused that some dude tried to PICK ME UP right there in LEGOland! Can you imagine?

What do you mean do I ever dress like that? I dress like this every day! Halloween is fun for costumes, tho. Just about time to start thinking about this year's.... thanks for the reminder. MM

Lol! Good one Mighty Mom! I just happened to surf upon your profile page, and took a gander to see what types of things you have written about, and this one caught my eye. I guess I was hopeful that I would make the list. I do consider myself somewhat of a construction stud, but I'm not nearly as long or hard as the type of construction stud you depict in this hub. Doh!

Mighty Mom 6 years ago from Where Left is Right, CA Author

Hi Dave, thanks for visiting! Had I known you when I wrote this hub you most definitely would have been on the hottest hubbers list! Maybe I'll do a 2010 update! MM

Tee Hee - just found this one and it raised a giggle. I think I'll wear stud earrings today and give myself thrill.

Mighty Mom 5 years ago from Where Left is Right, CA Author

Tee hee is right. In the early/heady days of my HP membership this kind of silliness was commonplace.

Enjoy your stud earrings. I'll put the kettle on high to add the "hottest" to our day! All the best, MM

Hey, Tonu1973. I look back on that time as the Golden Age of Hub Pages. We used to have soooooo much (too much!) fun cyber flirting.

Wouldn't have traded those fun experiences for all the Google Adsense dollars in the world:-).

Thanks for visiting. Nice to take a little stroll down Memory Lane. MM
