Welcome to Would U?, an academic forum in which I share my gross crush of the week and ask if you, too, would bang that person.

The Internet has been lit ablaze over Paul Mason, a Canadian model with a jolly white beard who is currently making appearances as “Fashion Santa” at Toronto’s Yorkdale Shopping Center.

Here is 2015’s sexiest Santa with some fans, in a layered, understated spin on the traditional Santa suit:

Here he is pre-makeout:

Here he is on the cover of a magazine:

Here he is brushing his teeth:

Here he is with no pants on:

Wow! I mean, who doesn’t want to fuck Santa in general, right? He’s already in your living room, and he is really good with animals! “Santa’s younger brother—the thinner version,” as Fashion Santa refers to himself, would therefore seem like a no-brainer, but the Jezebel staff has some qualms:

Wow, turns out the war on Christmas is real! Would you allow this generous senior to investigate your chimney?

Last time on Would U?, we asked: Would you have sex with the newly-bearded Paul Ryan? 47% answered “No, I would never have sex with Paul Ryan,” 30% said “Yes, his beard changed everything,” 19% said “Yes, I would have sex with any version of Paul Ryan,” and 4% said “No, that beard would give me a rash.”
