2018's new years' nudes are spectacular
Drew Rowsome
15 December 2017.


For the last couple of years, I have written about the upcoming calendars of particular interest. That interest can be sparked by the fundraising for charity that the calendars do, or just because they are artistically sexy and something that one would enjoy viewing on their wall for 365 days. The best, included here, do both. I hesitated this year because, while the posts in 2016 and 2017 were wildly popular, they also created unexpected problems. 

I can only speculate on what lead a disgruntled Warwick Rowers employee to go on a rampage and threaten to sue every site that used photos in order to promote the Warwick Rowers' calendars and products. The resultant fallout led to a mass extermination of blogs, including mine, on Tumblr and other sites. Copyright is a tricky legal entity and should be respected, so I want to make it clear that all of the photos you are about to enjoy are meant to be enticement to purchase the calendars - using the links provided - so that you can enjoy the photos the way they are meant to be seen and in their full glory. 

The Warwick Rowers are back, as they have been every year since 2009, for 2018. Though the photos are fresh, their mission remains the same:

- to promote positive, inclusive and respectful attitudes towards people of all genders and sexualities through the content that we create
- to fund university rowing and particularly to make rowing more accessible to a wider number of students
- to fund the ongoing development of Sport Allies, a registered charity with a mission to promote sport, and particularly team sport, as an inclusive and supportive route to personal growth for everyone

To that end they announce:

We are back with our biggest and best calendar range ever! As well as a new calendar with unique video updates, two new films shot in England and Spain, we bring you our third coffee table book in two exciting editions. We're also giving you the chance to slip into our brand new onesies and keep in touch with us all year through a brand new digital subscription and members' forum!

The calendar and all the other Warwick Rowers sway can be ordered at warwickrowers.org

The Boys Just Wanna Have Fun Calendar, photographed by Lisboeta Italiano, is a fundraiser for the Boys Just Wanna Have Fun Sports Club. Their motto is,


We are a sports club based in Lisbon, Portugal who promotes the pratice of sports without any type prejudice. Inclusion, diversity and equality are some of our valures. At the moment we have a rugby team called Dark Horses, a volleyball team called Lisbon Crows, a swimming team called Lisboa Poolboys, a group who pratice Tango once a week, a football team called Lisbon Foxes and a running team. To get more info send and email to info@bjwhf.org

The calendar is themed around "Desire" and from the samples, it earns that capital letter. The calendar can be ordered at bjwhf.weebly.com

The AAC Amsterdam Lowlanders Gay Rugby Team's annual calendar has a slight twist,

This time around we wanted to give you a taste of what the many connections within International Gay Rugby look like. So, for the first time, the Lowlanders Calendar features not just us, but our fellow players from many different countries. Reaching out, connecting and building friendships is the essence of rugby, with the many bridges in Amsterdam as the backdrop.

Is there anything anyone would rather look at on a daily basis than and international selection of nude rugby players? The Lowlanders calendar can be ordered at amsterdamlowlanders.ecwid.com

Though the sport of swimming is implied, the Newfoundland and Labrador Beard and Moustache Club Merb'ys calendar is more about the hirsute sexiness. And the tail.

A merb'y is the combination of the words "mermaid" and "b'y" (the latter being Newfoundland slang for boy or buddy. And there is another animal mixed in (insert cheap "hung like a" joke here) as the money is being raised for Spirit Horse NL. As the Beard and Moustache b'ys explain,


Spirit Horse NL aims to enhance the mental health and life skills of youth, adults, families, and groups through therapeutic interaction with horses. Those who work with the Spirit Horse team will achieve an understanding of themselves that is sometimes difficult to attain through other forms of therapy.

The Merb'y calendar can be ordered at nlbeardandmoustacheclub.com

Ginger lovers get two choices in 2018 as Thomas Knight's Red Hot has produced two calendars. In the traditional but blistering hot tradition of Red Hot, designed to debunk the now-long-debunked misconception that redheaded men are not sexually desirable, there is the British Boys calendar with the selfempowering tagline:

Be Comfortable In Your Own Skin

Some gingers are very comfortable in their own skin and the second Red Hot calendar is entitled Red Hot C**ks. This calendar aims to combat what some deluded person considers a "stigma" against ginger pubic hair with redheads posing nude while brandishing an upraised middle finger. Alas they are not comfortable in their own foreskin and the actual penii are covered by emojis.

Large emojis.


However the funds raised by the Red Hot C**ks Calendar goes to Movember Foundation's Testicular Cancer Awareness project and the photos are very, teasingly, hot, so it will do until they decide to do a Red Hot Full Frontal.

Both calendars can be ordered at redhot100.com

The Australian Firefighters calendar is always smoking hot. And the addition of rescue puppies for a second calendar is adorable and hot. So for 2018 they also added exotic animals particular to Australia. All three are irresistible. And hot.




And for a good cause. As the firefighters explain:

From its humble beginnings, The Australian Firefighters Calendar was established in 1993 to support the Children's Hospital Foundation, providing funds for research into childhood burns. Now in its 25th year, The Australian Firefighters Calendar has raised over $2.3 million for various charities.

All three calendars can be ordered at australianfirefighterscalendar.com

The Toronto Firefighters calendar for 2018 is pretty much a mystery. The website torontoffc.ca is full of broken links and no clear way to actually order one. Perhaps as the new year draws closer, the marketing will kick into high gear. And if not there is always the Firefighters Without Borders calendar that raises funds for communities that are woefully underfunded and underprotected when it comes to firefighting equipment. Tragically Canadian First Nation communities qualify and Firefighters Without Borders has been raising money not only for third world countries but also for our own backyard. The Firefighters Without Borders 2018 calendar can be ordered at firefighterswithoutborders.org

Also close to home is the Stratford Fire Department Firefighter Calendar which uses prime Canadian firefighting flesh to raise funds for the Stratford/Perth Hospice project. This one may be trickier to find as there was a much-hyped promotional event where the calendars were autographed and apparently most of them were sold. However you can try brilliant-images.com and hope that some of "smoking hot" Stratfordians are still available.


The meat Naked 2018 calendar is all about combatting the gay male disease of bodyshaming. meat publisher Adrian Lourie picked twelve men who he dubs "ordinary" but hot, and photographed them in his bed. The results speak for themselves. Cover model Fernando says, "It wasn't an easy decision to pose naked for meat, but now I'm absolutely proud of myself for doing it. I thought I would never be picked because of my body shape and I wanted to prove that you can be hairy and have a belly and it can be sexy."

Warren, by day a digital marketing manager, got more expansive when he talked to hornetapp.com,

So many of us have issues with our bodies; we think we're too fat, too skinny, too pale, our cocks are too small, our bums not pert enough or we're too hairy. We are constantly comparing ourselves to others, but we need to take a moment to learn to be happy with what we've got and see that there's no such thing as the perfect body. I'm not toned. I'm ginger, hairy, I don't go to the gym and don't have big muscles, I'm pale as snow and my bum jiggles, but I now love being naked again. Confidence is sexy, so own what you've got and be proud lads!

A worthy crusade and a very hot calendar. meat Naked 2018 Calendar can be ordered at meatzine.com

While perusing the extraordinary "ordinary," attention must be paid to the NYC Taxi Drivers calendar. Sexy but not too serious it,




features 12 of the city's most scintillating and good-humored yellow cab drivers. A portion of each calendar sale will go to University Settlement, America's oldest settlement house (1886), based in New York City and serving over 30,000 immigrant and working individuals and families every year with basic services like quality education, housing, recreation and wellness opportunities, and literacy programs.


The kind of service and style that Uber will just never be able to muster.

The NYC Taxi Drivers Calendar can be ordered at nyctaxicalendar.com

The photographers featured in MGT and on MyGayToronto.com and this blog create some of the most strikingly erotic and inspiring photographs in existence. Two of them have calendars from Bruno Gmunder (who also carry a large selection of porn company promotional calendars) and both are stunning. Dylan Rosser's Wet 2018 continues the theme of his book of the same name.

Clothing is not an option, and bare skin rules the day! This sexy NSFW calendar will spice up 2018 with twelve hot male mermaids!

(nb: "mermaids" not "merb'ys")

Since Dylan never works with clothing, here he uses water, almost like a fabric, washing over the body. Wet 2018 is a collection of tantalizing images showing a mix of explicit images; striking portraits; and a close-up focus on skin, water, and texture. Wet 2018 has got everything you want to see on your bedroom wall.

David Vance's EMotion continues his exploration of men in motion. As Vance told us, he is fascinated and aroused by dancers, acrobats and athletes. As he tells Bruno Gmunder,


As a beauty addict, I am compelled photographing beautiful subjects. When I see something that is beautiful, I want to show it to the world the way I have experienced it.

Both calendars are available at brunogmuender.com and while you're there, be sure to ask them where the G Elliott Simpson Transformation calendar is.

And, just to wrap it all up neatly, there are many favourite calendars to be found from shirtless celebrities, hot politicians (here I am going to ignore the Andrew Scheer calendar that inexplicably arrived in the mail, it still gives me nightmares and I only got as far as June), Colt and our hunky friends at Chippendales. 2018 is shaping up to be a very good year.
