With visions of New Year’s Eve dancing in your head, it’s time to consider the holiday tradition of acquiring a 2008 calendar for you or for someone’s stocking you want to stuff. Here are some beefcake calendars that recently caught our attention.
From strapping cowboys to hairy-chested musclemen, Colt Studios has six 2008 calendars to choose from. In 2007, Highland Park native Tom Chase made a Colt comeback, starring in three videos. Along with Brad Patton, Chase is featured on the “Couples 2008″ cover and when you go for duo pictorials, you get twice as many studs.
$15. 95, available at COLTstudio.com
Dallas is home to one of the world’s most photographed bodybuilders. Israeli-born Sagi Kalev has been a cover boy for Muscle and Fitness, Men’s Workout and countless others. His physique is immaculately proportioned. His face could launch a thousand ships. And he’s as straight as a laser beam. But Kalev knows he has an immense gay fan base, and in the past he’s even put his bachelorhood on the auction block for the Lone Star Ride Fighting AIDS. His 2008 pinup is written in four different languages.
$13.99, available at SagiKalev.com. Allow 30 days for delivery.
It’s the strangest male pinup of the year: the 2008 Men on a Mission calendar. Yes, 12 Mormons to tempt y’all each month. Shirtless coverboy Matthew (shouldn’t he be wearing his Mormon undergarment?) is on a mission to help people change their lives “from bad to good and from good to better.”
Publicists for the calendar asked Dallas Voice if we wanted to interview any of the missionaries under the stipulation that no questions addressed their sex lives. We passed.
$14.95, available at Stonebriar Centre.
