The lovely limey lads of the Warwick Rowers Club teased us with their oft-nude shenanigans.
…and over again. But it was all for charity. Proceeds from said shenanigans go towards the anti-bullying and anti-homophobia charity Sport Allies.
The Rowers have apparently set off a trend in the UK with other collegiate athletes stripping down for their favorite charities:
Also across the pond, Brit bisexual diver Dan Cope skydived in the buff for some terminally ill kids.
The annual Dieux du Stade calendar is always eagerly anticipated for anyone who loves naked rugby players — so nearly everyone. Part of the proceeds from the calendar, this year shot by Fred Goudon, are donated to charity. Though the real charity is what the original gods of the stadium hath wrought. Naked calendars for everybody!
Gay rugby team the Nashville Grizzlies stripped down for their own calendar to raise money to attend a memorial cup in honor of 9/11 victim Mark Bingham.
Jeff Probst got naked with some bacon for Two and a Half Men, which can only be seen as an act of mercy since that show should’ve been dead years ago.
Future nudist colony resident/activities manager Miley Cyrus eschewed clothes just about anytime she could this year, but this campaign for Marc Jacobs actually benefits cancer research and not just her reputation for being a stunt queen.
Miley gave us so much in 2013 that the internet had to give back. And naked dudes came in just like a wrecking ball, whilst riding one, to offer their thanks to Lady Cyrus.
God bless her.
Ian Somerhalder stripped down to raise awareness of how hot Ian Somerhalder still is. A worthwhile cause if there ever was one.
Broadway Bares 23 raised temperatures and funds for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, this year taking the audience on a clothing-optional road trip across America.
From he to shining he, the show raised nearly $1.5 million for the charity.
Before the main event, however, the Broadway Bares boys performed Solo Strips, which raised over $13,000 for BCEFA back in May.
And Chris Mears.
Olympian speedskater Blake Skjellerup rivaled Mears’s Team GB teammate Tom Daley for his aversion to clothing, but Blake was only (mostly) doing it to raise awareness of how hot and openly gay he is so he could make it to the Sochi Olympics where he would be hot and openly gay in the face of Russia’s anti-gay propaganda law.
The frat stars of University of Michigan’s Pi Kappa Alpha decided to let their patriotic flag fly, ultimately leading to their suspension. Alas, it was all in the name of their country. And to land some sorority snatch.
What were your favorite charitable acts of nudity this year?
