Yes, that was Shemar Moore naked in the picture we showed you the other day. No disputing that.

But the Criminal Minds actor wants to clear the air about where it was taken – and quash rumors about his sexual orientation.

After The National Enquirer ran shots of the former star of The Young and the Restless in the buff on a nude “gay beach” in Maui, speculation swirled around the sexual preference of Shemar Moore.

But despite the fact that the whole world saw Shemar Moore nude, he says it wasn’t on a gay beach… nor does he roll that way.

“I went on vacation with two girlfriends of mine who, interestingly enough, got cut out of the pictures,” he said. “We found a nude beach that, as far as I know, was a unisex beach.”

“I had two hot chicks with me who wanted to go skinny dipping… Thank God the water was fairly warm!”

What we think Shemar Moore is saying is that his … forget it. Let’s just say Nick Lachey knows all about it from his frequent encounters with Vanessa Minnillo in the pool.

Currently single, Shemar Moore continued, “I’ll say it right now: I’m not gay. I love women. Women are God’s greatest creation. But I have no problem with people who are gay.”

So, to sum up, and paraphrase one of the many classic Seinfeld quotes, Shemar Moore is not gay! No way… Not that there’s anything wrong with that!
