Alex Minsky Shares Photos and Interview From Tumblr to Twitter, Alex Minsky has become as prevalent on social media sites as kitten videos on Youtube. Wondering why that name sounds familiar? He's the handsome and tatted Afghan army vet turned underwear model. After landing in a coma and losing his right leg, Minsky decided to make the best out of his unfortunate situation, and in doing so he has become a model citizen (pun intended). Here at The Underwear Expert, we knew we had to reach out to Minsky the moment he came across our radar. So we asked one of our favorite photographers, Gabriel Gastelum, to spend some time with Minsky. Not only did we get some great shots of him in N2N underwear, but we also got to learn more about him in a one on one interview. You can read the entire Alex Minsky Interview at The Underwear Expert and see some of his photos below. Alex: Yeah, well photographer Tom Cullis found me in the gym in Newport beach, where I live right now. He tried me out we did a test shoot and his photographs got the ball rolling. From there I got to work with Michael Stokes and others. I'm actually trying out acting now and all that crazy stuff. It makes sense because, I don't know. Alex: Well I'm not gonna say that but if YOU say that I'm not gonna disagree. UX: So do you want to continue modeling? Any brands you'd like to work with? Alex: Nike gotta get that plug in. All I wear are Nike shoes and I love Nike underwear, too. Shameless plug right there! Puma too. UX: Alex, going through comments in an article we read about you. Some of the guys were questioning your tattoos and how sexy they were. What would you say to someone that said you had too many tattoos? Alex: I would ask them if they know of a way I can remove them all. UX: Do you wish you could remove some? Alex: No, but if they told me they thought I should remove them I'd ask them if they knew of a way. I don't know of a way. I'm completely OK with them. I love them and I'm getting more. I'm getting more Saturday! Alex: I don't know. Something! UX: Do you have a favorite tat? Alex: I dunno! I love them all, especially the day that I get them. Then that's my favorite one. They all have a special meaning and they all mean something. I love them all for their own reasons. I love them all like they're my first and only one. UX: Can you tell me more about being in AA? Alex: I came out of my coma and I was using alcohol as a tool to cope to cope with the trauma that was going on in my own head and in my own life and I was like messed up, dude. I was real messed up. Nike MercurialX Finale And then a series of very unfortunate events happened back to back to back bam bam bam. My younger brother passed away when he was 19 and I was 21 and then I used alcohol even more, to cope even more. It's a progressive illness, so my alchoholism progressed further and further and further and I never slowed down. I felt that I was, that I deserved it.



I felt like I was allowed to drink that much because, I don't know. because I could because I wanted to. And that's not the case. It was very unhealthy and it is very unhealthy and it was very, very bad for me. I don't regret anything Nike MercurialX Finale TF Black Anthracite Bright Mango that I've done any drinking, anything like that but it's not a healthy way of living. And it's very hypocritical for me also because I promote healthy living all the time in every single aspect of my life. For years I've been promoting it in every other aspect of my life except for my own personal abuse of alcohol. I would abuse the crap out of alcohol. UX: So what pulled you out of it? Alex: I got in trouble. I broke the law. I got in trouble and the courts got me sober. I was sober for 50 days when the fog had lifted enough and it's not completely lifted, it's a process but it lifted some and I realized, "Holy guacamole, I'm a piece of crap and I need to stop doing this. This is bad." I've been sober ever since. One day at a time. I'm not going to lie and say everything is peaches and cream all the time, because it's not. It's life. Everything is not peaches and cream all the time. The only difference is I don't have alcohol to cover up anymore. I don't have that coping device. I'm left to handle shit head on. Face first. I'm still early in recovery, but it feels so good getting clean and staying sober. I was like, "Holy guacamole!" I was feeling the love coming, and my modeling started picking up in the same time frame. Three, four months sober and everything just seemed like it was happening. I was happy with where I was. UX: Everything has a positive reciprocal outcome if you can find it, so congrats on finding it. UX: Let's 180 here. Can you tell me about your prosthetic leg? Alex: I don't sleep with it and I take it off a few times a day. UX: I'm curious how you would describe the impact of a prosthetic on your physical life and your sex life? Alex: [Laughs] My physical life. well, I dunno. You can't walk sometimes and you gotta get around it. It's an obstacle and what do I do? I'm Alex, right? I get over obstacles.
