The Naked Rowers Are Back With Their 2016 Calendar

Homophobia doesn't stand a chance against these naked men.

In case you've missed the wondrous glory that is the Warwick Rowers, this is them:

Warwick Rowers

They're a group of (hot) British rowers from the University of Warwick who began making 🚨nude calendars🚨 in 2009. The calendars raise money to fight against homophobia in sports via Sport Allies and to fund their rowing club.

Though the calendar is already popular among straight women and gay men, this year the rowers are saying that the calendar is for everyone.

As the calendar touches on not just sexuality, but male intimacy in multiple forms.

To date, the calendar has raised over £300,000 (more than $458,659 USD), of which nearly £50,000 went to Sport Allies.

Sports Allies receives 10 percent of all profit from Warwick Rowers products.

These dirty men need a shower. (And perhaps a volunteer cleaner.)

Here's their promotional video for the calendar. But you may want to grab some water first, because it is guaranteed to leave you thirsty.

The rowers also have a Crowdfunder campaign to fund the calendars, including packages that offer bonus images that were too risqué for the calendar, a coffee table book, and more.
