PHOTOS: ESPN’s Body Issue Flexes Its Muscle With Hot Naked Sports Stars

We’ve been shivering with anticipation for ESPN magazine’s 2012 Body Issue, which officially drops on Friday. But these just-released photos do not disappoint. Hooray for the athletic physique—and three cheers for athletes, like Rob Gonkowski (above), who are sporting enough to share theirs with the world!

      Pretty tame stuff. Why even bother?

      Because some of us like softcore photography. Not all of us are so imagination-free that we need hardcore porn to appreciate erotica.

      @Robert from Brooklyn: +100.

      Also, I’d nominate Novak Djokovic, Rafa Nadal, Jo-Willy Tsonga, and so many more.

      @luther: @Jeffery Allen: @Xtopher: I know right!? They all should have been hard and jerking off and playing with dildos. I mean really what is the point of a picture of a man being naked unless there is a sexual act going on and if I can’t at least see him spread eagle and see his anus?

    • Oh well

      The poses are forced, unnatural, and awkward. Bad, bad photographer!

      For those who are unacquainted, the Body Issue of ESPN magazine is not meant to be porn. While it is obviously a gimmick meant to compete with Sports Illustrated’s swimsuit issue, it’s intention is to portray very athletic examples of the human form (both male and female) in an artistic way that also incorporates their sport. Athletes almost always are covered by uniforms and equipment when they play so this is a way of showing what their bodies are doing under the pads.

      And for the record, Ron Gronkowski can have his way with me any day.

      @Chuck: I’ll fight you for Tim Morehouse. First, there’s that sweet ass, which I’d love to explore in full. Then there’s the fact that he taught history for several years…so, after I’ve exhausted myself through exploring his tush, which would clearly take several days, we could discuss the Elightenment, the American and French Revolutions, the rise of Napoleon…. Sigh. He’s my dream man.

      Is the guy on the cover a fister or fistee? The expression on his face leads me to think, both.

      @Oh well: That’s what my 83 year old neighbor said. :) You two must be Mahjong buddies.

      These are gorgeous, Queery, but I’ve come to expect more equality from this site(not it’s commentors). But your usually pretty good at giving equal time to the ladies. At least the openly gay one’s. Abby Waunbachs photo is absolutely buetiful; I look forward to seeing it reprinted on this site soon!
