Women of Curling 2009

After taking a year off, the 2009 Women of Curling Calendar, featuring 13 female curlers from around the world, is now on sale.

Like past editions of the calendar, it features nude or near-nude curlers posing with props related to the sport.

..."I think this one is more risque, in my opinion," said a laughing Keshen [Christine Keshen, who won an Olympic bronze medal at the 2006 Winter Games]. "But my boyfriend (Mike DuBois) thinks it's great. He's the boy, he's the expert."

...It was intended to be a fundraiser for women's curling teams, and models received a share of the proceeds.
Available for $34.95 from thecurlingnews.com; Reported by the Sun and the Vancouver Sun.

Spring Time

“Spring Time”, the first calendar with artistic nude photos licenced in Vietnam, was introduced on September 25 by the HCM City Culture and Arts Publishing House.

The calendar uses seven nude photos by photographer Thai Phien: “No title”, “Spreading Wings”, “Line”, “Cool Stream”, “Shoot of Rock”, “Spring Melody” and “Angle”.
I haven't found a way to order it yet. Not being a charity calendar, it's really outside my mission, but how can I not mention it? Story (and all seven beautiful pictures) found at VietNamNet.
