If you were growing up during the 90’s, James Van Der Beek (as Dawson Leery) must have been a force in your gay sexual awakening.

Turns out he’s still a big looker – with an emphasis on big – as a recent photo he posted has his fans zooming like crazy, trying to understand whether that huge thing is actually James’ huge… well, bulge.
