Lol, that is such a typical bloke answer. Regular!!! One has to buy the damned product when needed.

Blokes can grow a beard and trim as necessary. I am sure your wife/ lady friend will agree with me. Life gets better as one gets older .....!!!!

Isn't porn or soft porn , using the body with intent of causing sexual excitement? I doubt very much that any of these models set out to do that.In fact I have seen more show of flesh on a beach.

I hope they sell lots of calendars, raise awareness and it raises a few smiles too!
