2014 may have been the year of the Nice Jewish Guys calendar, but 2015 promises something a little naughtier.
Calling all “Jewish men willing to pose shirtless, in underwear, or tastefully nude,” (chubby or hairy? that’s ok too) playwright Duncan Pflaster wants you for his Naughty Jewish Boys calendar.
The idea came as a reaction to the “emasculating,” nebbishy, Nice Guy version, Pflaster told Heeb. “Jewish men can be very sexy, and that’s too-often neglected in media. I’d like to be able to show that side, for those who desire more than ‘adorable’ from their men. I’d like to allow men to be sexy.”
The only requirements? “Be Jewish, be sexy, be willing to pose semi-clad in a studio for an hour. I’m especially interested in showcasing “natural” bodies; not everyone needs to be or should be thin and hairless. Previous modeling experience isn’t necessary. Would love some Orthodox guys with payess, but I suspect there will be fewer of them willing to pose.”
Pflaster says he’s already got two candidates lined up. If you think you’ve got what it takes, send your picture to email@example.com.
