It's mid December and if you haven't found your perfect beef calendar for 2014, don't fret - we've got you covered for another year.
It wasn't easy to whittle this list down to a top ten, but the hard work spent choosing our favorites is what makes us love our jobs. Did we miss any? Let us know.
In the 10th spot is The FDNY (The Fire Department of New York), who put the breaks on the steamy calendar in 2008 after it was discovered that cover model Michael Biserta starred in a racy porn video called “Guys Gone Wild” before joining the FDNY. The calendar was reinstated in 2012, and boy are we glad it's back! All proceeds from the calendar will go to raise funds for the development and training of firefighters and for public outreach.
Our 9th place calendar for 2014 goes to the strong and hunky men of The Amsterdam Lowlanders Rugby Team. Funds raised through the sale of this calendar will enable the team to participate in the seventh edition of Bingham Cup, the world gay rugby tournament, in August 2014. Available here. We wrote about them recently being banned from posting calendar photos on Facebook.
Another studly calendar any of us would love to get our hands on is by our friend Ben Cohen! A frequent champion of gay rights, Ben is again donating proceeds from sales to his Stand Up Foundation. If you'd like a year's supply of charming bear hug photos from Ben, be sure to order your copy today!
Next up is the Barcelona’s LGBT sports club Panteres Grogues. Proceeds from sales will go to the BCN Checkpoint Center, an organization devoted to the prevention and early detection of HIV. Well done amigos! Get this calendar here.
Our 6th top calendar for 2014 comes from The Royal Marine Commandos, the elite amphibious fighting force of the UK's Royal Navy. The sexy black-and-white shots include pictures of Royal Marine Commandos on HMS Kent and physical training instructors in Devon. Grab this while it's still available here.
