Bonjour folks!!

I don't know whether Jakey is ambidextrous or not, but I DO know where his left hand is here ... :P

OMG, Milli! LOL! You made me laugh so hard I cried!  :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

(and you know I can't complain about the second picture .... you used my favorite picture of Jake! You should have put Heath's hand down Jake's pants. That would have been a sight!  ;))

Hehe..cheers Vicky!

I think I have read Jakey facts on a  number of websites.. :P, no mention of ambidextrous or not ..
I did read on some fan forum that he had said in an interview that he chose to write with his left hand in the Good Girl to make the character more mysterious (or something..) but that he is right handed.

Although something tells me that if Jakey tried to handle any one of us here, we won't be looking which hand he's about to use.. ;D.. :P

 :o :o :o
Vic what magazine are these from?! In other words I want them for my Jake collection! I know I am sad because I have a collection! ::)
Oh and by the way I think have heard from fans that have got his autograph that he writes with his right hand when doing autographs, but that still doesn't rule out the ambidextrous thing. And in the Good Girl I think that was more of a character thing than anything cause they always say that people who are left handed are more creative etc... like Holden  ;)

LOL! True!

Of course in "Jarhead" Jake masturbates with his left hand. Being that I’m not a man I am not sure, but I think in regards to masturbation … men are ambidextrous!  ;D
