Calendar boys

From Victor Steinbok, a link to the Hunks & Horses charity calendar, showing off naked guys and their horses. For June 2014:

(#1)

Tons of naked hunk charity calendars are available, especially from the U.K. (as here), working for various worthy causes. In this case:

Hunks & Horses charity calendars are filled with, well, hunks and beautiful horses! All proceeds from every calendar, and associated events, are donated equally between World Horse Welfare and Testicular Cancer Research UK.

On to a note about the title of this posting, which plays on the song title “Calendar Girl”, and then back to the hunks.

On the song, from Wikipedia:

“Calendar Girl” is a song written by Neil Sedaka and Howard Greenfield. It was a hit single for Sedaka in 1961.

In the lyrics, the singer recites the months and explains how events throughout the year give him reasons to celebrate the love he has for his girlfriend. The events primarily relate to Western and American holidays.

A YouTube video is here. Crucial lyrics:

I love, I love, I love my calendar girl
Yeah, sweet calendar girl
I love, I love, I love my calendar girl
Each and every day of the year

From a 10/21/13 posting on a naked Swiss farmers calendar:

An item in the huge genre of Hunk Calendars — firemen, farmers, bodybuilders, male hustlers, what have you, in several languages and social contexts. Affording the pleasures of contemplating the male body. Some of them purport to present genuine members of the category in question, others (like the Boys Next Door) are obviously fantasy fodder using male models.

Some are carefully G-rated (but steamy), many are blatantly X-rated, focused on the penis as the center of the male body.

Digression: Why calendars? If you like to view attractive male bodies in the privacy of your own home, and want to change the image you display every so often, you could get any number of photographic portfolios that will suit your tastes, and change the image when you fancy a fresh one. You don’t really need a calendar: in these computer days, hardly anyone looks at printed calendars check out dates. On the other hand, a calendar gives you an excuse to display the images, and obliges you to pull up a fresh one on a regular basis. So calendars have advantages over plain pin-up boys (or pin-up girls or cute cats or whatever), and there’s a market for them.

The charity connection. Apparently, at some point (fairly recently) some women’s groups, largely in the U.K., conceived of the idea of playfully exposing themselves (within careful limits) on calendars to raise money for charities, and men’s groups quickly followed. Perhaps the high point so far of these charitable hunk calendars are those from the Warwick Rowers: young, in great shape physically, seriously athletic, and wonderfully playful (they horse around a lot). From their website:

Warwick Rowers: Proudly getting naked for club and community

Thanks for coming to visit our little boathouse on the internet. We are probably best known around the world for our naked calendars, but we’re also a real sports team, and have produced Olympic and world class competitive rowers.

Our calendars help us to fund our sport, and enable us to do our own outreach programme to young people called Sport Allies.

The Rowers of course provide rear views, which almost never count as X-rated:

and work hard to manage acceptable (and entertaining) cock-tease shots from the front:

Further afield. Charitable calendars come in many varieties. Here’s a project from Minneapolis:

And there’s a calendar, with a drawing in it of my friend Steven Levine playing an “adult baby”:

(#5)

The adult-baby fetish is not one of Steven’s things, but he’s been happy to play the role for fun and charity.

On the fetish, from Wikipedia:

Paraphilic infantilism, also known as autonepiophilia and adult baby syndrome can be a sexual fetish for some that involves role-playing a regression to an infant-like state. Behaviors may include drinking from a bottle or wearing diapers. Individuals may engage in gentle and nurturing experiences (an adult who only engages in infantilistic play is known as an adult baby) or be attracted to masochistic, coercive, punishing or humiliating experiences. Diaper fetishism involves “diaper lovers” wearing diapers for sexual or erotic reasons but may not involve infant-like behavior. Individuals who experience both of these things are referred to as adult baby/diaper lovers (AB/DL). When wearing diapers, infantilists may urinate or defecate in them.

… A variety of organizations exist to promote infantilism or meet with other practitioners throughout the world.

Adult babies are of both sexes.
