Royal Marines 'Go Commando' For Charity Calendar: PHOTOS

3_commando

In addition to naughty or nice Jewish boys and James Franco with cats, your calendar collection can now include the sexy shirtless (and occasionally pantsless) soldiers of the Royal Marines. The black-and-white photo shoot by prize-winning photographer Emily Nolan presents the uniformly ripped soldiers in various states of undress for a charity calendar celebrating 350 years of the Royal Marines. Funds raised by sales of the calendar will go towards goals such as childcare and sports facilities for the RM as well as educational grants, among other projects. The calendar costs just £5 and can be purchased through Go Commando's online store.

More shots, AFTER THE JUMP....

Mensch vs. Meshuggah: Jewish Male Pinup Calendar Competition Gets Litigious

Naughty and Nice Jewish Pinup

There are not one, but two Jewish male pin-up calendars available for purchase to fulfill your need for some kosher beef. First, there's Adam Cohen's "Nice Jewish Guys," which he started in 2011 and fills with pictures of charming, smiling, fully-clothed Jewish men, showing the sweeter side of God's chosen people. Then came Duncan Pflaster's "Naughty Jewish Boys" featuring young men, yarmulkes, and little else which Pflaster created to counter the "emasculating" stereotypes and discouraged outward sexuality of Jewish men and plans to release it this fall.

Despite the discrete tastes between the two calendars, Cohen felt that the name of Pflaster's calendar too closely resembled his own and had his lawyer issue a letter to Pflaster, requesting that he cease infringing on Cohen's trademark. Pflaster has countered that he doesn't think that consumers will be confused by the two calendars, calling the claim of trademark infringement "weak" and has no plans to stop making his calendar. Cohen has not commented further on the dispute, but his lawyer said that they consider the issue ongoing.

Shirtless NYC Firefighter Ready for His Close-up

Firefighter

From a NYT City Room column on shooting the annual NYC firefighters calendar:

“This is me out of shape,” said the fireman, Taylor Murphy, as he flexed an outlandishly large pectoral muscle. He was standing topless, applying cocoa butter to his 6-foot-5, 265-pound frame, in front of an enormous turn-of-the-century steel rotary converter.

Nearby, Alan Batt, who was photographing Mr. Murphy for a charity calendar featuring beefcake shots of smiling New York City firefighters, fiddled with his tripod. “I knew this guy was built like, ‘rrruhhhr!’ ” Mr. Batt said, grunting and making a “this big” gesture with his hands. “So I wanted him in a place that was rrruhhhr, you know?”

And, uh, I think we're ready for that close-up too...
