My headline is from the press release photographer Nick Baker sent me about his 2016 "Ripped and Stripped" calendar and it's a pretty accurate pitch. Here is more:

"This year’s amateur models included Jake, Adam, Jo and Jack — a gym addict, a plumber, a singer and a tree surgeon. Finding a secluded spot on the long sandy beach, the boys made the most of the warm sun. Clothes came off and the games began! A little running in and out of the sea with a piggy back ride just for good measure. A bit of footie, a toss of the Frisbee and a display of gymnastic prowess and generally lads being lads is all captured on film."

If I ever need a tree surgeon, I'll know to give Andy a ring.

The calendar costs about $18 and you can also buy a video from the website.

Here are some photos of the fine lads by Nick Baker, followed by a video (there is some naked butt on display below if you are reading this at work).
