"I think the entire city of Tampa has gotten together to mess with me."
That was the reaction of History Bike Tampa founder Eric Turner when he heard he'd been nominated to Creative Loafing's 2015 Lust List. Like most of the lovely folks nominated by CL readers for our annual roundup of the buff and the bodacious, he was a little embarrassed (but hey, a little flattered) by the whole thing.
Scroll down to see the nominees picked by CL staffers as their favorites (plus the man and woman most Liked by readers on Facebook) and click on the photos to read our interviews with them. We think you'll find, as we did, that they live up to the glowing recommendations of the people who nominated them. I suspect that if we'd had time to sit with all 122 of the nominees, we would have discovered the same thing.
Love and lust. They don't always work in tandem, but it's pretty fantastic when they do.
