PHOTOS: It’s Hard Work to Make a College Rugby Jock Calendar

shurugby18

GRATUITOUS SKIN — Thought Dieux du Stade’s calendar was the be-all, end-all of hot rugby calendars? Then you haven’t seen Britain’s Sheffield Hallam University jocks. These more amateur, less-styled fellas hit the showers, the bar, the lounge, and the streets to bring you their goods. Appreciate them, won’t you? (Warning: Some images/video NSFW.)

    #15 has peen, and red nail polish. Fun.

  • tavdy79

    These guys are definitely sexier than most of the British models we’ve been having for breakfast recently Queerty, although to be fair they are rugby studs so I guess it’s to be expected.

    BTW, don’t get the wrong impression over #5 – rugby players aren’t your typical jock: they tend to be somewhat uninhibited, and far less paranoid about being labelled as “queer” – something to do with a sport where only tough guys survive I guess. Unlike soccer players, they don’t need to constantly reaffirm their masculinity.

  • Fitz

    Sexy and fun.

  • Republican

    Eh, they’re OK, I guess… Nowhere near as hot as the guys on the Dieux du Stade calendars though.

  • michael

    I love it. I love the playfulness, the realness of the photo’s. These photographs take us beyond gay-straight, beyond homophobia to a world where guys can be comfortable with each other, playful and even affectionate. The photos seem to capture a bond, a love between these guys. It would be so nice if the world was more this way. There would be much less homophobia and fear of those of us who are gay.

  • AlanInUtah

    No. 5 · michael : I agree, though they need to lose the socks. :)

  • I pliss

    Republican: Jackass they are college kids did you read? they are still developing and they look amazing!

  • terrwill

    Funny, I never used to have a sock fetish……………..

  • terrwill

    And PS: REPUBLICAN Knew the BOQB would have to put their two cents in…………I PLISS: Bravo!

  • Republican

    Terrwill,

    I am not bitter, old, or part of a brigade. As for whether I’m a queen, opinions vary.

  • Republican

    I Pliss,

    Forgive me for not falling in lust with these gentlemen. While my comment was a bit harsh, it’s not like I said they were ugly. I realize that some like the “Average Joe” kind of guy more than the ultra-hot body and face, but my opinion is different. Calling me a jackass was unnecessary.

  • scott ny'er

    i loved #13, 15, 19. great shots.

    i love these kind of amateur pic shots. so free and full of energy.

  • Fitz

    I love this average-joe look. Much nicer for me than the waxed zombie look. And the joy and fun between them is wonderful, beyond sexuality.

  • hardmannyc

    Adorable.

  • tss161

    #18 with the Camera is the bees knees.

  • kevin57

    You have to love rugby guys…their looks, sure, but they are so natural and unthreatened. Like someone said, so different from soccer ladies.

  • Robert-Chicago

    O-M-G The guy in front, #5

  • Crunch the Numbers

    eh, I dunno….it’s like the rest of the world….some guys are hot..some not…case in point pic #14.

    As for the rugby angle, it’s something, but I’ve played rugby and lived to tell about it.

    all in all, the goodlooking ones stand out because they are truly good looking whereas the rest get a pass for being young.

    so yes, I’d fuck them all, but for different reasons.

  • Lucas Bf

    hot man, hot. the front one has a stiffy.

  • Lucas Bf

    he got a stiffy in this one too. theyre all lookin at it

  • Lucas Bf

    hillarious…they locked him out cause of his stiffy

  • anthony

    I need to transfer to that university.

  • Lucky Luke

    The guy bending over in pic 18 is the far left one in pic 1? I must marry him.

  • Evan

    The guy on the left look like David A. :P

  • Lizcivious

    Love British boys! My favorite (favourite) is the one with the necklace and bracelets. Adorable! My only qualm is that they’ve all trimmed their bushes. Oh, and yeah, the socks, qualm number 2.

  • Helga von ornstein

    I loved every pic. Especially the chubby guys. Excellent choice Queerty.

  • Rob Moore

    I’ve played rugby too. Nothing finer than scrumming with seven other sweaty men with thighs like tree trunks in the forward pack. I particularly liked the chances I had to play one of the lock positions. The pretty gazelles were in the back positions. They could run and twist and turn, but were easily damaged when a bull from the opposing forward pack abruptly stopped their forward momentum. Rugby tends to break down fears of close physical contact due to scrums, mauls, rucks, and lineouts. American football is such a sissy sport with all the pads and the stop and go play that allows everyone to catch their breath, and why separate defensive and offensive players on a team.

  • naprem

    I went to the other Sheffield university. They didn’t look like this.

  • MarkiMarx

    That is one sweet and serious booty call.

  • MarkiMarx

    My gaydar went “tilt” looking at these guys, who knows!???

  • jason

    I love the relaxed sexuality of male rugby players, whether their heterosexual, bisexual or whatever. They’re far more relaxed about themselves and others than the whiny, narcissistic metrosexual from Greenwich Village.

  • tony, Blackpool, UK

    I think personally, the pics are rubbish. The socks dangling are really stupid and detract from the whole nature of the project. We have just done our own ‘Cafe & Bakery Boys’ calendar for a testicular cancer charity. Natural naked poses with relaxed and authentic to the pic items hiding the willies – for example, holding a box of cakes. The idea is to look natural whilst hiding the modesty. NOT just hanging around nude in unnatural poses.

  • terrwill

    Republican: At least I have my bit ‘o Queerty glory that my BOQB has become part of the venacular here………but again my post towards you stands. They are just havn fun and its nice to see that they don’t give a shit about others thinking that being in the photos was “so Gay”…………

  • Miles R

    Does anyone know why Queerty won’t create thumbnails or at the very least respond to the numerous request to do so? Their photos are annoying!

  • Fitz

    @ Miles– cuz the site is free, and they pay for it with ads– and when they go to sell ad space, they have to say “we get x number of clicks per hour”. It’s a pain, but would you pay to be here?

  • Nate

    I would just work my way down the bench in #1

  • SteveMD2

    He needs a better ruler

  • Shae

    Fuck….im about to transfer colleges!

  • Jeremy

    The last pic is my fave I think. The guy in the underwear is hot and the underwear choice is a good one.

  • Carlos

    They’re hot and all that, but if it’s not in a hardcore porn movie, i’d preffer them dressed up.

    I don’t know, i guess im just used to the male body, i don’t think it’s that fun to watch this guys going around with a sock in their cocks.

    Besides, to me it’s funnier to see boys getting undressed than undressed guys getting their clothes back on.

  • Kasnar

    I wonder if those guys ever thought previously they’d be using their socks in that fashion. If I didn’t know it was a calendar I might have thought it was a reality show called something like “College Rugby behaving badly”. Gotta have a sense of humor about these things…..

  • Adam

    i lived in sheffield for 20 years. out for three of those….how did i not see these guys or the previous years guys? :(

  • Chadboy

    If these are “average” looking guys then the world must be a very pretty place. Not sure on what planet these guys are considered “average”. I live in NYC and these men are hotter than 95% of the guys out and about.

  • charles

    @Chadboy: It’s true. Even Seinfeld observed that 95% of the world is undateable.

  • Jonathonz

    Nice to look at but I have to say I’m looking forward to the day when a more natural looks for pubes comes back into style.

  • Jad

    HAHAHAHA, 17 is really funny :D , i like it

  • Chuck

    The guy in the forefront on pic 1 and holding the camera on pic 18 is the hottest one. I also like the beardy blonde guy at the bottom of the pyramid. :D

  • Kasnar

    In pic#1, the guy sitting nearest the camera person catches my eye. Kind of hunky. Reminds me of Kurtz’s boyfriend on Glee.

  • Kasnar

    @Rob Moore: LOL…I wouldn’t have imagined I’d live to hear someone call American Football a sissy sport. I hope you’re on the eastern side of the pond. I wouldn’t express such sacrilegious views in the West too loudly.

  • darkanser

    @Chuck: I would strenuously echo your sentiments. The bearded blonde seems to appear in several photos. Regarding the hunky guy in the forefront in pic#1, I would have liked to have seen his hair tousled and/or wet. With that adjustment, his sitting there wouldn’t have looked so posed or artificial. Also the Coppertone pose of the other guy in pic# 18 is cute.

  • Brooke

    Those terrible leather couches.

  • Mr-DJ

    Why did they shave their pubes????

  • willowcove

    Where can I see photos #8, 19, & 20??

  • MACDONALDBANK

    Cool Guys!

    Being black, left-handed or being gay is just as natural. It is a sometimes rare occurrence to fall in Love and to hold that person in your heart and be loved in return … it is something that should be celebrated! If it’s between two guys or two girls — all the better. It takes even more courage to defend that LOVE!

    The evil writings in Leviticus 18:22 … against gays – depict: “P” … “priestly rules” & expanded by the pope; homophobes and religious frauds … to attack the gay community and never meant to apply to the public — but to priests. Leviticus was written long after Moses — 600BC.

    There is no scientific evidence to prove any of the cross related bogus elements of christianity and other religions. Our early human ancestors; on this earth … go back more than 6 million years … 5,996,000 years before the Greeks, Romans and the Jews. Christianity is basically a 2012 year old fictional cult.
    In the year 300 AD when Emperor Constantine, who to some was the first pope; went on to fabricate & market Christianity!
    Christianity is a fantasy; which turned out to be one of the most hateful & evil concoctions ever perpetrated on the world.

    It is written; so therefore it shall be? We are the chosen people? Such a wicked fantasy. To see the religious lunatics manipulate government and our lives is shameful.

    The pope and churches fully aware that Leviticus 18:22 applies to priests only … refuse to remove this stigma … maliciously persecuting gays. Kids are being bullied into suicide …!

  • jack512

    @kevin57: “Soccer ladies”, them’s fightin words!

  • hf2hvit

    13 Left…pink hat…I’d TAP THAT!

  • BritAus

    @scott ny’er:
    19? I count only 18

  • BritAus

    I wish they’d made looking as these pix easier instead of having to click next all the time.
    Scrolling would be better.

  • GROSSOUCHY

    It’s a very good idea to do this calendar but the socks are ridiculous ! Those guys are nice and it’s pleasant to see males in total nudity.. It’s more natural

  • Icebloo

    Seriously ? You think I am going to sit here and click on 18 or more tabs to view the pics ? Come on Queerty – it’s time for a redesign !

  • Icebloo

    @BritAus: I totally agree. This wesbite design is like the 1970’s.

  • JohnMc888

    I understand they’re all Hospitality majors.

  • JohnMc888

    @tavdy79: The main difference is that Ruggers laugh a lot, at themselves and each other.

  • Sfmanlvr

    Rugby ~ if u right handed, be LEFT LOCK. In a tight scrum your right hand goes up between the legs of the PROP in front of you, and you grab his jersey and shorts tie round his mid section and pull as hard as hell down to knit and to make the scrum tight to get the ball out on your side. Much anatomy to enjoy in the process, and I never heard a single complaint during my Rugby days. In retrospect I think most of the guys liked doing it. I mean always a lot of nude horse play in the showers by the guys and considered quite normal. I think there is a lot of suppressed homosexuality in these contact sports. And they know it an like to push the limit. I always found it way too hot and fled to avoid my secret be discovered. LOL! Any Rubgy guy will confirm this.

  • Sfmanlvr

    @tavdy79 – you are spot on. But some are gay. I think the discerning thing would be who’s doing the horse play. I could never get into that situation because I knew I’d bone up in 1/2 a heart beat and then never live it down. It took me a FEW YEARS AFTER my Varsity days to come out. I remember the MOST difficult coming out experience was having to tell my best buddy who played in same team, that I was gay. I thought he would walkaway. He didn’t. Big Italian guy who had on a few occasion s got naked and prounced around with me and another guy ( the 3 of us were always together) and he told me he knew, and it didnt matter a bit to him. We are still 20 + years later very close friends. People close to you see what is unnoticeable by others.Thank God there wont be such a thing as “coming out” in 20 years. it be like…what?? so what dude…

  • Sfmanlvr

    ..these are all gay Sean Cody guys..c’mon…

  • CarrollAP

    @michael: Tell the jocks to drop the socks, want to see them in all their glory!

  • scott747

    What are those black things hanging between their legs? Is it a Rugby fetish?

  • Rooney

    Hi, have you heard about BellyFatTack” yet? Simply copy and paste ????????????.??? to your browser to check out their website! There you can find a useful free video by a longtime medical doctor teaching on how to lose unwanted fat. This helped Cheryl to reduce her belly fat. I will probably give this a shot. I hope it will help you also…

  • woolsrake

    Good for these guys: having fun and sharing it with the rest of the world is pretty awesome.

    But next year they need to get an art director. In this day and age, when wankers can see more shaved-pubed amateurs on the Internet than they’ll ever get around to looking at a second time, you need an artistic eye to help you actually sell printed material. The awkward socks, the aimless futzing around, the waxing and threading like it were 2003 on the Jersey Shore, aren’t much different from the thousands of drunken selfies you can find on a lot of amateur sites.

    It takes a professional to capture the natural essence and beauty of a guy well enough to make me pay for what I could otherwise get for free…on Queerty, for instance.

  • Markajv

    Either they have a Pube Barber on site or UK men are mangooming like mad!

  • paul dorian lord fredine

    what do they call their calendar, ‘socks on jocks’? booooring and rather ridiculous. they’d have looked better in jockstraps.

  • Sluggo2007

    They are too cute! I have a sudden urge for some fish and chips.

  • silveroracle

    One word. Woof!

  • EvonCook

    Guys, Drop the socks and share the meat!!!! Wonderful bodies, but don’t be shy about the most special and delicious part!

  • SteveDenver

    I want a picture of that pyramid from BEHIND

  • BriBri

    YAWN!
