More often than not, calendars are downright frightening. See: pictures of babies dressed up as flowers, the near-naked Jersey Shore fire department, nude middle-aged women à la “Calendar Girls.” If turning the page to see what greets you for March elicits a cry of terror, then perhaps you’re in the market for something a bit more subdued. Try this visually pleasing poster by Lene Mirdal. The design-y “all year round” calendar features a cool, colorful graphic that spells out 365 days quite plainly. So you can rest assured: there are no surprises.
I’m occasionally a bit of a procrastinator. According to the calendar on my office wall, it is December 2009, and I’ve still got to pick up vodka for New Year’s. But, fortunately for all of us, the powers that be at the New York City Sex Bloggers Calendar do not have this problem. They’ve got future sexiness on the brain, and they’re seeking centerfolds from anywhere in the country for 2011. For the past two years, they’ve been using the calendars to raise funds to promote healthy, positive sexuality, under the premise that sex is fun and awesome, and sexual freedom is a basic human right. In 2011, all the proceeds from the calendar will go to the Woodhull Freedom Foundation, an organization that advances the cause of sexual speech, education, and expression. They oppose abstinence-only curricula, the misuse and abuse of sex workers, and legislation that governs the bedroom. They also foster scientific study of human sexuality, positive body image, and artistic expression. All good stuff! Any cutie patootie — gay, straight, male, female, trans, queer — sex blogger of any ethnicity or size is invited to submit a photo. All in favor of nominating our own Simcha?!

Amelia sent me a link to this gorgeous, gorgeous 2010 calendar yesterday because she knows how much I love Gilles Marini, and holy, hot tomato on toast, it’s gonna be a good year!

Go ahead — take a look at some beautiful photos of Marini, shot by his long-time friend, award-winning photographer Fred Goudon, whom he met 15 years ago while the two were fulfilling their military obligations in Paris.

If you thought all Mormon women wore floor-length muslin gowns and did their hair in poofy buns, you would be wrong. If you thought Mormons ate normal, run-of-the-mill muffins, you would be wrong too. The “Hot Mormon Muffins: A Taste Of Motherhood” calendar blows those two stereotypes straight to hell. From the same folks who brought you the “Men On A Mission” calendar (which featured sexy male missionaries!), “these sexy moms have dared to step into the spotlight to breakdown stereotypes and extend a hand of friendship beyond religious and social boundaries. Shot in a centerfold format with oversized imagery, the calendar features the ladies’ favorite muffin recipes with a portion of the proceeds going to Breast Cancer research.” Well that’s nice, I guess. More importantly, what makes the muffins so damn special? According to Examiner.com, they have a “buttered sugar coating.” Consider my mind blown. [Examiner.com] Keep reading »
