This naked calendar sees 12 men strip off to celebrate body positivity – NSFW

The 2018 meat NAKED calendar has arrived…

The project sees 12 men strip off to fight stereotypes of what makes a man sexy, celebrating all shapes, sizes, ages, backgrounds and professions.

The meat NAKED calendar is a ‘fuck you’ to body shaming, and sees an array of everyday guys take it all off to pose on a bed.

Lourie said his portraits “defy the body shaming that goes on in the gay community. Photographing naked men in bed is a great way to celebrate the bodies of ‘ordinary’ gay men.”

As for the calendar’s hunky cover star, Fernando – who is a HR professional in London by day – said that he’s proud that he found the courage to pose for the shoot.

“It wasn’t an easy decision to pose naked for meat but, now I’m absolutely proud of myself for doing it,” he said.

“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.”

“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,” added Warren, a digital marketing manager.

“We are constantly comparing ourselves to others, but we need to take a moment to learn to be with 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!”

The meat NAKED 2018 Calendar is available now from meatzine.com alongside a special edition of meat zine featuring exclusive pictures of the guys from the calendar.
