Few people embody the idea of joie de vivre as much as this week's Coverboy. Having moved to Suitland, Md., from Toledo, Ohio, just three weeks ago, 23-year-old Eric likes to maintain an active and adventurous lifestyle. A self-described ''explorer'' who loves everything from camping in the great outdoors to full-contact sports, this professional boxer, dancer and model lives the axiom of variety being the spice of life. As the youngest of five siblings, Eric admits he was spoiled as a child, but even as an adult he likes to indulge his tastes – particularly with food. But he brings more to a relationship than just dining richly and seeking thrills; he's also a handyman who loves building things, and a creative and versatile lover when it comes to the art of romance.

What's on your nightstand?
A clock, a lamp and dresser drawers full of various things.

What's in your nightstand drawer?
Toys, condoms, lube.

What are your television favorites?
Charmed, Bad Girls Club and sometimes I watch the History Channel or the animal channel.

What was your favorite cartoon when you were a kid?

What superhero would you be?
Batman. I always feel like I have to be the one to save somebody, the one to step up.

Who's your greatest influence?
My boxing coach. If it wasn't for him, I don't think I'd be here right now. He took me in, made me into a man.
